Quote1.png So, is this the face of a New Genesis child? I think not. I think this is the face of Darkseid's son... A true child of Apokolips, born of fire, born of blood! You are my son, Orion, no matter what Izaya's weak teachings may have done to your soul. You're my son, more my son than that oaf Kalibak. Together, we can burn worlds, Orion. Together, we can claim a universe! Father and son, we can put this galaxy to the torch-- Burn out the old weakness, purify the fetid flesh-- Rout out the disease of life! Together, we can conquer eternity! I offer you my hand, Orion. Take it! Quote2.png
Darkseid

Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Call of the Cosmos"

While on the road delivering some explosives loaded on his truck, Hal Jordan encounters an alien woman who asks for Green Lantern's help. Hal almost hits her, but then she disappears when he gets down of the truck. Using his ring, he finds an energy trail that leads to outer space, to a ship surrounded by some space leeches draining its power. He tries to stop the parasites, but they drain the energy of his Power Ring. To get the Energy Leeches off of him, Hal brings his truck to space and blows the explosive inside, stunning the aliens.

Inside the ship, the alien woman tells Green Lantern that she fell in love with him after saving her world from a flood. She volunteered for an exploratory mission to Sector 2814, and then projected her image on Earth to call him. However, he knows he's talking to another hologram, so he blasts it off and demands the real pilot to show up. She walks in, but everything she said was true, the only different thing is her appearance. She used holograms hiding her real appearance in fear of Green Lantern being repulsed by her. But Hal is not repulsed, and he kisses her before saying goodbye.
