Synopsis for "Defeat!"

The Guardians of the Universe find the rift through which Krona returned to the universe, but they get attacked and overpowered by Krona's master. Leaving their brothers behind, one of the Guardians escapes to warn the Green Lantern Corps about the menace they encountered.

In Oa, after paying respect to the fallen Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan leads the remaining Corps members to track Krona and his army. After the destruction of Green Lantern Stel, the Corps finds out that the universe is contracting, pulling every star and planet toward the center, Oa. The Corps then encounter Krona's army. The Green Lanterns prevail and force Tylot, one of the attackers, to reveal how Krona became so powerful.

Tylot explains that, after the Guardians exiled him, Krona crossed the final barrier between dimensions, reaching the domain of Nekron, Lord of the unliving. With his new master, Krona became more powerful than ever and pledged to take revenge against the Guardians.

Suddenly, the Guardian that escaped from the battle earlier arrives to warn the Green Lanterns that Krona is in Oa. The Guardian dies in Hal's arms, and the Corps go straight to Oa to avenge him. Krona overpowers them all, and as a last resort, Hal channels the power of all nearby rings into his, hitting Krona with a single massive blast. But Krona is unbeaten, and he escapes through another rift to fulfill his master's plan.
