Synopsis for "Dark Resurrection"

Thanagarians are attacking Throneworld, and Starman and Tigorr have come to its defense.

Meanwhile, Kyle Rayner arrives on Ancar in time to prevent battle between the Khunds and L.E.G.I.O.N. forces led by Vril Dox and Captain Comet. Analyzing the Khunds' computer reveals that Thanagar plans to claim Rann for themselves and colonize the planets of Rann's allies, and that the Khunds were hired to source Nth Metal on Ancar. Rayner orders both forces to leave the planet. While investigating the Nth metal, he learns from his ring that the material is important to the Cult of the Seven Devils and their god Onimar Synn, who thrives on suffering and death. Captain Comet approaches, having stayed behind, and reveals that the message from Thanagar to Khund was sent after the planet had been scorched by Polaris, implying that someone dead sent it. The two set out to Thanagar to investigate, ignoring the Guardians' orders that the Lanterns stay out of it.

Blackfire meets with a Thanagarian ambassador. Her plan is to pretend to aid the Thanagarians in seizing Rann and then claim the planet for herself. The ambassador has brought along a captive Hawkwoman. Adam Strange, Hawkman, and Hawkgirl arrive and battle the Thanagarians.

On the decimated Thanagar, the Cult of the Seven Devils succeeds at resurrecting Onimar Synn and soon a ship will arrive to take him to Rann.
