Synopsis for "The Conclusion of Alpha-War: Meditations in Green"Edit

With Guy and John's self made monster entering the fray and the end of the last issue the conflict between the GLs and the Alpha Lanterns reaches a fever pitch, especially with the arrival of the rest of the Green Lanterns on Oa. The Alphas focus on the amalgam of technology assembled from the forge and destroy it from within and then set their sites on the rest of the Corps. With the distraction out of the way the Alpha Lanterns prove their superiority quickly, de-powering all of the rings and apprehending the Corps in two panels. The Alpha Lanterns decide to dish out their judgement without due process. The Alphas intend to not only carry out their final judgement on John Stewart, but summarily execute him as well, but it is Varix who realizes that the line has been crossed by his brethren and makes the decision to stand for what he believes in. With John and Guy's rings covertly recharged by Varix the two humans manage to forcibly rip the power batteries from the Alphas' chest cavities, but before they can deal with the rest of the Alphas Varix takes the opportunity to attack his fellow Alpha Lanterns, killing them quickly and mercifully. Varix realizes that the power of the Alphas was too much for anyone to bear but reminds John and Guy that they made huge sacrifices to serve the greater good. With the realization that he, too, had nearly completely fallen victim to the blind power he commands, Varix makes the ultimate sacrifice and kills himself. As John and Guy transport the Corp to the central battery to recharge, a voice calls to be let out. The Green Lantern Corps gather in the crypt as Morro performs the final rites for Varix with John and Guy noting that the Alphas should be remembered for who they were and not for what they were turned into. Meanwhile the Guardians find the situation has played out entirely in their favor with the Alpha Lanterns now out of the way with no implications to the Corps of their role in everything that's happening. With no more rings going to anyone, the entire Corps is within their grasp. Guy ironically wonders who will be next to fall as the Guardians secretly spy on him.
