Synopsis for "Wrath of The First Lantern, Part Three: 2 Reunions & A Funeral"

Kyle wakes up in his apartment in New York City with Volthoom toying with him until Kyle lashes out but his attack proves ineffective. Volthoom peels away reality exposing the history of his captive and we see an interesting gallery of images from Kyle's past with Volthoom choosing Alex DeWitt to taunt the White Lantern. In the new reality Kyle didn't keep the ring allowing Alex to ultimately survive, but Alex is not too happy knowing that her boyfriend could have done so many positive things with the ring and the knowledge that his worry for her drove his decision was too much for their relationship to handle. Kyle's ability to master all of the emotions in the spectrum allows him to warp this new reality a bit, transforming into the White Lantern in front of Alex, forcing Volthoom to end the charade in favor of a new bit of Kyle's history. In yet another reality Kyle has been raised by his father, ending up as a car mechanic with him and never having met Alex or become an artist. Again Kyle is able to see through the charade and ends up on the wrong end of a club when the argument with Volthoom intersects with the local police. So Volthoom decides to make the third time a charm and puts Kyle in a reality in which he never helped Hal Jordan return and Sinestro successfully defeat the Guardians and decimate the Earth. Guy Gardner being one of the few Green Lantern left attacks Kyle, but then Volthoom seemingly has a change of heart and allows Kyle to choose his fate since he has offered the most entertainment to the First Lantern. Kyle chooses the version of reality where Alex gets to live and then Volthoom reveals that the offer was nothing more than a ruse designed to get under Kyle's skin and put him off balance before leaving him despair.
