The all-powerful Ion is back — but is he friend or foe?
DC Comics’ 2006 mega-crossover series Infinite Crisis saw longtime Green Lantern Kyle Rayner regain the massive power of Ion after his one-time girlfriend, the hero Jade, transferred all her energy to him with her dying effort.
Kyle had previously called himself Ion when he held as much power — far more than a standard Green Lantern ring provides — and he’s done so once again (which also works out since DC he too many characters called Green Lantern kicking around).
As this 12-part miniseries begins, Ion is devastating entire regions of space and killing alien beings by the thousands. Meanwhile, Kyle Rayner is trying to sort out his complicated life by spending time painting at an artists’ retreat.
Confused? Well that’s the point!
After being attacked by a bounty hunter, Kyle heads off into space to figure out what’s going on and the answers he finds lead to even more perplexing questions.
Writer Ron Marz returns to the character he created and delivers an enigmatic piece of the puzzle to the future of the DC Universe.
