Synopsis for "Ring Against Ring!"
Having acquired an Oan Power Ring, the irate Galius Zed turns against his comrade Hal Jordan and decides to show him what a true ring-bearer can now accomplish. Hal has little chance against a foe armed with such a superior weapon, but Galius Zed quickly learns that the ring taxes his own life energies, draining him of power and vitality. A withering Zed collapses before Hal Jordan. Hal calls to mind how this whole business got started.
It began with Green Lanterns Eddore and Kaylark. Both of them had come into conflict with a trio of space pirates called the Free Lancers. The Free Lancers showed them how their masters, the Guardians of the Universe had crafted a ring that was not inhibited by materials colored yellow. This enraged Eddore and Kaylark, and drove them to renounces the Guardians.
Kaylark came into possession of her own Oan ring and returned to her home planet D'xe where she crowned herself Empress.
Eddore acquired an Oan Power Ring as well and returned to his native world of Tront. With the power of the ring, he forced hundreds of Trontians to fuse their essences with his own, creating an over-sized being of great power. Hal Jordan came to Tront and fought against the Eddore/Trontian entity. Channeling all of his ring's energy into the being, he overloaded it with power, causing it to collapse to the ground.
