Résumé: After the massive explosion on the planet of Tendax, Green Lantern will never forget the cries of a woman who had just lost her child. Of course, Minister Illis accuses the rival sect of the Magdum for being the culprits, but instead it is a rogue group called Matiac which seems responsible for the bombing. Illis explains that the Matiac actually belong to his people and are part of an experiment which went wrong about 20 years ago. The Matiac are led by Lord Stacre who once has been the best friend of Illis. The Minister wants Green Lantern and Jade to confront the Matiac with lethal force if necessary. Kyle refuses to kill anybody though.
