Synopsis for "Executive Action"
In this installment of the Armageddon 2001 storyline, Waverider touches Superman and investigates another timeline, again with him marrying Lois Lane, but this time stopping Manheim from detonating his nuclear device that would destroy Metropolis. Clark Kent becomes an aide to Pete Ross who is running for president, but while trying to protect Ross from being killed by an assassin, his identity as Superman is exposed. Ross has Kent take his place in the run for the presidency and manages to prevail as he wins the election. While most of the nation seems to favor Superman's actions during his term as the President of the United States, Green Lantern Guy Gardner ends up rebelling and turning against all his allies and contemporaries during a gathering of heroes for one of Superman's presidential decrees. Ultimately in a one-on-one confrontation between him and Guy, Superman used his will to cause Guy's power ring to transfer onto his hand, depowering the Green Lantern long enough for Hal Jordan and John Stewart to intervene and take him away. Though Waverider feared that this could be the point where Superman becomes Monarch, he sees that instead the Kryptonian wisely turns over Guy's power ring to Hal Jordan for him to select a new candidate, knowing how much power can corrupt.
