Synopsis for Green Lantern: "Dust of the Earth!"

Green Lantern demands answers from the captive Ravager for the reason behind their attacks. The Ravager explains that they are trying to join a certain federation, and this federation, after learning the Biblical story of how Earth was created in six days, tasked the Ravagers to do the inverse of that story, following the same pattern of creation but to destroy six different planets: on planet Zerbon, getting rid of their light; on the artificial planet of Vivarium, making the skies fall; on Archos, making the water flood the entire planet; on Jotham, cooling the sun; and on Earth, reversing the natural order of the animals. For their final target, they use a Reversion Ray to devolve mankind back to dust. Green Lantern is already affected by this ray, and he turns into a caveman. But on his last moments of rational thought, Green Lantern brings the Ravagers spacecraft down and destroys their Reversion Ray, turning himself back to human.

With the Ravagers defeated and their six tasks foiled, Green Lantern threatens them to get out of his space sector and never return.
