Then we flash forward to the present were Kyle Rayner is being shown the graves of the billions of people who died for the Citadel’s goal (which is explained in the issue, but I won’t spoil, because of how awesome it is). Kyle wants to know why the Omega Men kidnapped him and lied to him. The answer is simple; they want him to murder the Citadel’s prime minister with a lantern bomb. This new information shocks Rayner and he cannot help, but lower his weapon. Conveniently, Tigorr chooses this moment to insult Kyle’s God and like any good Catholic would Kyle’s realizes his patience has run out. What follows is a beat-down of Spanish Inquisition proportions as Rayner explains to the pagan why his God can beat up Tigorr’s Gods. Let me tell you, after issues of Kyle being lied to and imprisoned it feels good to see him let loose like this.
Unfortunately, Rayner still doesn’t know what to do; and sensing his weakness Kalista tries one last time to turn him into her side. Will he join her in killing thousands in exchange for the freedom of billions? You’ll have to tune in next issue to find out.
