Quote1.png Oh, they trusted us! They trusted that we'd want to use these rings if we knew about them... at the expense of our lives! They trusted that we'd put guarding others above our own well-being! That they'd recruited the noblest in the universe... to be... Green Lanterns! Quote2.png

Synopsis for "A Ring Of Endless Might"

Hal Jordan gets to the planet of D'xe, where the Green Lantern Kaylark, seduced by an improved Power Ring, put herself in charge as Empress Surrenda. Her soldiers encounter Hal while ransacking the houses of the inhabitants, then they subdue the Green Lantern and take him to the yellow fortress of the Empress.

In Surrenda's throne room, the Free Lancers arrive to confront Kaylark and demand her to give them the improved Power Ring she stole. Chance reminds her of their deal, but Surrenda, seduced by power, won't negotiate with pirates. The Empress overpowers them and sends them to the dungeon.

The soldiers scouting Hal arrive at the fortress, and they clash. Overpowered by her improved Power Ring at first, Hal manages to nullify her green energy and beat her. Hal recalls how both Eddore and Galius Zed where defeated by their own fears, powered by the new rings. Hal proceeds and makes her see her past and feel the fear of being unloved and unrecognized. Suddenly, the Free Lancers, who escaped by picking the lock of their jail, attack Hal Jordan with Chance's "secret weapon": a gun that can pull out the energy of Green Lantern's ring. However, that doesn't stop Hal to beat them in hand-to-hand combat. Hal retrieves Kaylark's ring and, with its yellow-proof power, destroys the whole fortress after evacuating everyone.

Later, in Green Lantern's Cruiser, Hal heads to Oa to hear the Guardians' decision about the new rings and his exile. Dorine starts to feel jealous about how Hal thinks of everyone he must protect, everyone but her.

One of the religious subjects, Lysandra, finds the wounded Lantern and heads to his aid. Incapable of talking in her language, the Lantern his thoughts into her mind, and passes the mantle of the Green Lantern to her. Her first mission as Lantern doesn't take long to appear, and she saves the temple of Thar, the deity worshiped by the Zinthians, and the inhabitants revere her as a goddess. Lysandra confesses that she is a fellow Zinthian, but keeps her identity secret, saying only Thar will know who she is behind the mask.

With the passing of days, Lysandra continues to use her new powers to save her fellow Zinthians, until one day she gets summoned by the Guardians of the Universe. Knowing Zintha's law that forbids them to leave their planet, the Guardians bring an energy duplicate of Lysandra, and they concede the honor of using her powers exclusively on Zintha, without the need to travel through her sector. When her duplicate returns to Zintha, Lysandra learns from the a astronomers that their sun will soon go nova. Refusing to evacuate, Lysandra deems the best course of action is to move the planet away from the sun.
