Synopsis for "Wanted: Hal Jordan Chapter Four"

In Gotham City, Batman is fighting a couple of criminals, while talking to the Justice League. Martian Manhunter is fixing the brains of the Global Guardians, who were under the control of the Faceless Hunters. Superman says that Alan Scott is using his connections with Checkmate to drop the charges laid against Hal Jordan, though the Rocket Red Brigade still seeks his arrest. Batman ends the conversation just as he ties up the criminals and the police arrive. On a rooftop, Batman hears a voice that tells him that he has the ability to instill great fear. The voice is a Yellow Power Ring, which attaches itself to Batman's hand and welcomes him to the Sinestro Corps. However, Batman's willpower and previous exposure to a Green Lantern Ring makes the ring reject him. It continues its search for a sentient being within Sector 2814, with Batman wondering what just happened.

Back in the desert, Amon Sur continues to question Hal about where his father is buried. He chides Hal for not showing the ring respect, while it means everything to Amon Sur. He tells of how his father left their home planet of Ungara before knowing that Amon's mother was pregnant. Years after his death, the Green Lantern Corps finally arrived and notified them. Amon resented living in his father's shadow, but then went out to make his own name as part of the Black Circle Crime Syndicate. He was stopped by the Green Lantern of that time, Kyle Rayner, and when they had their next confrontation his head was blown off. Luckily for Amon, Ungarans are not as vulnerable to cranial injury as humans.

Hal is then taken further into the desert, and he takes Amon to the site where he buried Abin Sur. Amon then proceeds to blast it, showing the skeleton of the former Green Lantern of Sector 2814. Amon blames the Green Lantern Corps for his father's absence, and for what he became. Hal challenges Amon to shoot him, calling him a coward because he sent bounty hunters first and his hand is shaking now. Amon knocks down Hal and shoots him, but Hunger Dog comes in the way and deflects the shot. Hunger Dog then transforms, and reveals he is Hal's partner, John Stewart. He destroys Amon's gun and attacks the aliens, but Hal wants to face Amon on his own. A rock from the top of the mountain breaks off and heads towards them, but John stops it from falling. Then it shatters as the Yellow Power Ring that earlier attached itself to Batman selects Amon Sur and welcomes him into the Sinestro Corps. Amon then attacks the Green Lanterns, but his ring tells him that he will be subjected to psychological and physical reconditioning. He tries to resist, and it teleports him away.

On Ungara, Hal is at the monument dedicated to Abin Sur and apologizes for not bringing him back to his home a long time ago. Back at Edwards Air Force Base, the Justice League and Global Guardians are helping to rebuild the base after it was attacked by Amon Sur. In the infirmary, Green Lantern apologizes to Cowgirl, saying that he should have been at the base and could have protected the people guarding it. He's about to leave when Cowgirl calls him Hal, revealing she knows his secret identity.

Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Coast City, a sign for Ferris Air is destroyed, as the Star Sapphire seeks out Hal and who he desires.
