Who Guards The Guardians?

Last month we entered a story of suspense and terror as we saw Quaros, one of the Guardians of the Universe abducted by an unseen enemy.  Carol Ferris who was desperately seeking Kyle, pleaded with the Guardians to help her with her search, but they felt that finding Quaros was more of an importance.  So Carol and the Guardians made their way to a mysterious ship, where inside they find nightmare creatures that were once regular aliens but have had awful experiments performed on them.  The ship separates Carol from the Guardians and before a bunch of experimental space monsters can ponce on Carol Ferris, a bright light pierces the ship and we see that Kyle Rayner has returned right in the nick of time.  Let's see what this terror ship has in store for our heroes and if Kyle and Carol can retrieve their Guardian friends before anything Clive Barkery can happen to them.  Let's check it out.

Explain It!:

Well Kyle's back and that means it's time to explore the rest of the ship to search of the Guardians of the Universe.  But first it's time for the second big smoochie smoochie, you know to celebrate that Kyle is alive and all.  Smoochie

Alright let's find those Guardians.  Kyle reaches out with his White Lantern power to see if he can sense the Guardians and he senses that there is life everywhere and nowhere upon this ship.  Yeah that doesn't sound ominous at all.  The two continue their search and come upon a room that looks like the human batteries in the Matrix and they're full of aliens that have been horribly experimented on.  Remember in that awful movie Alien Resurrection when clone Ripley found all the clones that didn't make the cut?  Yeah I'm sorry to have to make you remember that, but it's just as awful.

Elsewhere the Guardians are being tortured and we find out that their captors are The Psions.  A species that long ago the Guardians created and evolved.  But when their creators left the planet, the Psions continued to make themselves better and now they go planet to planet and integrate other species attributes into themselves and discard the rest.  Now that they have they're creators back they can show them all the progress they have achieved.  They have some daddy issues.

Finally Kyle and Carol come to an impasse and figure that they've been led through this ship enough and it's time to make a few doors of their own.  That's when they come upon the kidnapped Quaros, who has seen better days.

In the end Kyle's not to happy about Quaros being experimented on and calls out the ship's owners, saying he's done playing their games and being led around for some kind of mental experiment.  So what I'm calling the Queen Robo Psion emerges agreeing that the experiment is over.
Make sure you're back here next month so we can see if Kyle and Carol can defeat the Psions and hopefully save the Guardians.  See you then.

Bits and Pieces:

The horror continues this issue as we discover the new/old origin of the Psions.  The main appeal for me in this issue is that we've got Kyle back together with his New Guardians team and we explore the emotions that present themselves with Carol and being forced to face the horrors of the Psions.  It's a good issue and moves the story along to our heroes meeting the big bads face to face.  So go check out this suspenseful issue and have a good time seeing Kyle back in action with his lady love.
