Synopsis for "Split Decision"
The fleet of yellow-painted L.E.G.I.O.N. cruisers come to Maltus to scatter the Green Lanterns. The Lanterns retreat and seek refuge among the city rubble, where they encounter the R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. In the middle of the chaos, Hal Jordan realizes someone tricked all three groups into counterattacking one another while the Triarch keeps ravaging the planet.
Meanwhile, the author of the current chaos, Vril Dox, meets Lord Daalon, a Controller and creator of the Triarch. Upon questioning, Daalon admits that the Triarch is nothing but a legend and that the "gods" currently ravaging the planet are robots inspired by said legends. So well he recreated the myth that his "sons" repeated their history and attacked their father. Believing him dead, the Triarch vanished. Daalon, however, crawled into a life-sustaining matrix, where he slept until the L.E.G.I.O.N. awoke him.
Outside, Hal reaches Captain Comet and decides to call a truce between all three parties to join forces against the Triarch, even though said union would mean to disobey orders. Thus, the Green Lanterns, Darkstars, and the L.E.G.I.O.N. unite their powers and unleash them against the Triarch. However, the gods retaliate by doing the same: they unleash their combined power to create a devastating shockwave that kills countless Maltusians, along with Bertron Diib of the L.E.G.I.O.N. The survivors realize that nothing stands between the Triarch and the total destruction of Maltus.
