|Story/s:||Welcome to the Grey!|
World Army Control Command Center is assessing the situation, monitoring the actions of all involved. Dodds and his Sandmen save the President and she is “tucked away to safety”. They believe the Atom has taken out Grundy and that it’s just clean up time.
The Atom starts fighting HawkGirl, Flash and Green Lantern and as he is losing his upper hand Grundy returns attacks the Atom and encases him in rotting matter, absorbing his power and speeding up the destruction of life on Earth.
Green Lantern returns after being punched miles away by the Atom and rips Grundy apart.
On Grundy’s return The World Army gets desperate and bring in Terry Sloan to advise. Kahn, Commander of Sentinel, the intelligence department of the Word Army, lashes out as Sloan knowing full well he was responsible for the “Fire Pits” that destroyed many countries during the attacks by Apokolips.
Whiel Grundy is down, Green Lantern explains how he can sense the force behind Grundy, namely the Grey. Like the Green Lantern is the Champion of the Green, Grundy in the Champion of the Grey. Green Lantern believes he can communicate with the Grey, and maybe somehow stop the death and destruction. But there’s a catch, his body will be defenseless as he travels to this other plain of existence. So he calls on the Flash, HawkGirl and the just saved by those 2, the Atom to protect his body while he travels to the Grey.
The Atom reluctantly agrees to help and all three engage Grundy while Green Lantern leaves his body. Once in the Grey Alan (Green Lantern) finds he can communicate with the Grey. The Grey says humans have had their chance and it time for all to die and for new life and new intelligences to to be born. For the World to be reborn without humans. They claim nothing can stop Grundy, not even the Grey itself now that he is set in motion. Then they offer Alan to join them and they offer him his heart’s desire to do so, they offer him his dead partner, Sam.
We then find out the World Army has voted secretly and decided to launch nukes at the capital hoping to end Grundy’s threat on Sloan’s advice.
Good old Sloan, back to lowing cities up again hey. Still want to know what he did with Mr Terrific after issue 2. Hey maybe Grundy is what happened to the Dinosaurs lol. I’m guessing once this is over the Atom will go back to trying to captures these new “Wonders” of the World. Next issue looks like a zombie fest. Where Ash when you need him 😉
