Synopsis for "A Bad Case Of The D.T.s!"

Jason Bloch meets the Demolition Team, and he asks them to destroy Ferris Aircraft. Sure that he'll destroy Ferris once and for all, now more than ever with Green Lantern unable to show up, Bloch returns to the Congress, where he sees the shocking news that the emerald hero recovered from his coma and is back in action. Desperate to erase all the tracks that could lead back to him, Bloch calls the Monitor to cancel the operation. But the Monitor can't do nothing to interfere and stop them, leaving Bloch to his fate.

At Ferris, Hal checks on Bruce Gordon and Tom Kalmaku, doing progress on the solar-powered jet. Former pilot Rich Davis tries the cybernetic command helmet in the cockpit. Gordon tells Rich to take off the flight suit and give it to Jordan to test the jet, much to Rich's disgust. Suddenly, a phone rings and Gordon picks up. He hears a challenging voice of someone demanding him to give the solar jet, and Gordon hangs up, assuming it's one of Bloch's men trying to scare him. At a phone boot, the caller walks away while laughing hysterically.

Later, the Demolition Team arrives at Ferris Aircraft, blazing their weapons and tearing down the place. Hal runs to his office to recharge his ring and become Green Lantern again to fight them. However, a Guardian appears to tell Hal that the fate of the planet Omnicron Ceti IV is on his hands, and commands him to go there immediately. Hal tells the Guardian that he has more immediate problems there at Ferris, and that his friends need him. But the Guardian reminds him of his promise to respond their call unhesitatingly. Reluctant, and hurting to leave his friends at a moment like this, Hal flies off-planet. Carol tries to call the authorities, but all the phones are dead. She sees Hal flying on the distance, and assumes that he has a secret plan to confront the Demolition Team later. The employees try to fend off against the D.T., but they are useless against their weaponry.

Green Lantern arrives on Omnicron Ceti IV, where he sees the planet is suffering devastating quakes. Hal analyses the planet and discovers that its radioactive core is unstable, threatening to explode at any moment, just like the planet Krypton did years ago, and the Green Lantern of that sector Tomar-Re was unable to prevent.

The Demolition Team continues their rampage on to the hangar where the solar-powered jet is stationed. Carol, Bruce, and Tom stand in their way to try and save the company's last hope of survival, even if they put their lives at risk. Suddenly, a strange figure appears from the rubble and the fires to fight the D.T., calling himself the Predator.
