- Coast City. It was my home once. My friends' home. Now it's nothing. An engine built on rubble. Built on the corpses of people I knew. And one of those corpses -- might be Carol's. If they think their missiles can keep me out... they're wrong. Nothing's keeping me out. Nothing's keeping me from finding the monster who did this. Nothing's keeping my hands from his throat.
Synopsis for "Death City"
Hal continues his fight with Mongul. Mongul gains the upper hand, injuring Hal's knee and arm, taunting him as his power ring has no effect on anything yellow. Hal fights the pain and uses his ring to make a suit of armor. He then hits Mongul with John Henry Iron's hammer.
Hal meets up with Superboy, Supergirl, and John Henry Irons. They break through a heavy door and find Superman battling with the Cyborg Superman. They choose not to intervene, and they watch Superman defeat the Cyborg.
After the battle, Hal contemplates using his ring to bring Coast City back. Suddenly, he sees Carol arriving at the city's outskirts. They're both glad to see each other alive. She then tells Hal that Green Arrow and Pieface have been kidnapped, and it's her fault.
