Savage is there to command the invasion force. Easy Company attack, forcing Savage to having the jets to quickly take off. Green Lantern makes a daring move in boarding Savage's flagship while the rest of Easy Company manage to prevent some of the planes from taking off.

Lantern is subsequently capture and brought before Savage, who begins to torture Lantern with an electric gauntlet. But the invasion force is attack by the League, who are then reunited with Wonder Woman.
