But when the danger passed, it was placed in a different system. Now threatening Thanagar's very existence, Rann tries to maintain peace and save the populations of two worlds. A religious fanatic, though, aspires to something else: power. And to achieve it, she's willing to sacrifice as many people and as many worlds as necessary! Standing in her way are the greatest champions from across the universe: Adam Strange, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Green Lantern, the Omega Men, L.E.G.I.O.N. and the Darkstars. Alliances are forged, friendships tested, and the balance of galactic power will be redefined before the conflict is over!" - WorldCat - ISBN 1401208398
