Synopsis for "Fear Factor"
Kyle appears in Space Sector 0538 having just completed his training in using compassion and is joined by his trainer, Indigo-1. Kyle's questions about the way that the Indigo Tribe channel all the emotions leads to a discussion about the nature of emotion in general and why Kyle is undergoing his quest to master them all. This leads to Indigo-1 pointing out to Kyle as did Atrocitus that Carol Ferris's role in all of this is not driven by purely altruistic intentions. Carol is on a trip to Zamaron where she has a heated exchange with their new Queen. Called into question for her role in trying to find Hal Jordan, Carol is at once called on the carpet for her actions but then allowed to continue her personal mission, but not before she is given the order to dispatch of Kyle Rayner if she finds that he cannot handle the power he seeks. Upon her departure the Guardians appear to underscore the alliance forged between the Zamarons and themselves and that Carol serves a greater purpose to them by allowing the Guardians to track Kyle now that his ring has become "emotionally contaminated". Kyle in the meantime has teleported himself to Vorn and confronts a brooding Arkillo. Kyle uses the colors of the spectrum he wields so far to try to illustrate that Arkillo's self doubt is what stops his newly forged ring of fear from working to its full capacity. When confronted by Arkillo, Kyle is nearly taken down but somehow manages to embrace his fear and channel it to defeat the alien with his own energy. Carol arrives and her arrival sparks a questioning of her devotion to Hal before she and Kyle head off to find Larfleeze. As the two depart Arkillo decides to join them in hopes that their ability to find Hal will lead him to Sinestro so that he can get rid of the one thing that stands between him and the ability to be the greatest of the Yellow Lanterns.
