Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The List"

Hal Jordan arrives at what's left of John Stewart's building. Assuming Star Sapphire is responsible for this attack, he wonders if John survived. Before he gets the chance to ask the pedestrians what happened, they run terrified of him. As the street clears, Hal finds a newspaper dropped in the ground and finds out John was accused of murdering Carol. Hal talks to John through the phone, and he briefs him about what happened during the trial, and about Carol faking her death. John urges Hal to find and stop her quickly and warns him to not call him again. Hal starts to feel his life is coming apart and needs to find balance. After being brushed off by Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent, Hal decides to ask Green Arrow for advice, who tells him to go forward and stop being sorry about the past, that they are not the same men they were years ago. He then leaves Hal alone, suggesting him to get a life.

The man identified himself as Bob Galt, who claimed that the gunmen were sent to "end his mission to contact their savior, Superman." The policeman with them scoffed, but Bob claimed that Superman should not be called anything but savior due to his godlike powers and standing for justice.
