Synopsis for "Atrocities: Part 3 Of 4"
Atrocitus and his Reds have made their way to Earth. First of all, Atrocitus demands to know where is the place Guy Gardner calls "home". Skallox blurts out "Baltimore", and Atrocitus sends Dex-Starr and two other Reds out. The three Reds level several cities and monuments and Atrocitus decides it's time for the next step. One of his Reds vomits one thousand new Rings that proceed to select new bearers. As the planet descends into chaos and madness, Atrocitus waits for Guy.
The Kaalvar heads to Earth at full throttle. Guy sees what Atrocitus has done to his homeworld and he's madder than ever; but he has a plan.
Meanwhile, Skallox asks permission to seek someone who may be an asset out. Atrocitus wonders whether his former soldier is plotting a betrayal, but he doesn't care what Skallox does, so Atrocitus lets him go down.
On Earth, the heroes are trying to handle the situation. Guy arrives in Gotham and asks Batman to get in touch with everyone and tell them they must keep the Reds contained, but not hurting them. He assures he has this mess under control, although Batman doubts Guy himself believes it.
On New York, an ex-Red is already endeavoring to keep the Reds from hurting other people and themselves. Guy Gardner runs into Supergirl as she is trying to reach a Red out. He's happy to see her, and asks how she got her Ring off and survived. Kara answers she let go.. Guy is hesitant to ask her help, but she's happy to join the fight.
Zilius Zox has flown the Kaalvar to Styge Prime and found Atrocitus' new Blood Lake. He proceeds to blast the place. Barg -the Kaalvar's former owner- sees his former ship and is determined to take it back. He communicates with Rankorr, who was apparently putting on a crazy act, and sends him the override code to open his cell.
In the meantime, Bleez has gone to the Kormoraki, whose planet was saved by the Reds,- and called in a favor. The Kormoraki bathe the planet with a sort of calming ray, temporarily soothing the Reds. Atrocitus sees this, and he attacks and tears apart the ship.
On Styge Prime, Rankorr sets the Kaalvar's weaponry to self-destruct and gives Zilius a death blow.
Atrocitus has captured Bleez. He mocks her, but she isn't frightened or impressed. Guy Gardner and Supergirl come along, and Atrocitus quickly runs away. Guy, Bleez and Supergirl get to save the Kormoraki ship rather than chasing him down because they know he isn't going anywhere.
Rankorr was being controlled by a centipede-like Red that Atrocitus put inside him. When his parasite hurts Zilius, Rankorr gets angry enough to break the mind-control off, and then he spits the bug-like Red and kills it. Rankorr attempts to apologise, but Zilius tells him leave him and fly back to Earth. Afterwards, Ziliius crashes the Kaalvar into the Blood Lake.
Guy, Bleez and Kara have saved the Kormoraki ship, and the shoothing beam is still firing, but they need to get the new Reds off the surface. Aided by her teammates, Bleez uses Blood Magic to try to control and call up as many Reds as she can. Atrocitus does the same thing on the other side of the planet.
Seven Reds have answered Bleez's summons. The rest of them have sided with Atrocitus.
