Chapter 10: Zane Stewart Returns
Zane turns sharply around and blasts Antipathy with his power ring, the anger that he had felt against the Green Lanterns were gone and replaced with anger for the Red Lanterns for what they had done to him. He goes to attack again but nothing happens, the red aura surrounding him disappeared then the next thing he knew he was free falling downwards. "Oh come on!" he shouted as he was falling, before hitting the ground, he was caught and saw that it was Superman who had done it. "Well if it isn't my savior Superman" Zane said with a hint of sarcasm in his voice.
"Shut it" Superman replied with a growl, he let Zane down then flew off back into the sky. Zane looked around then thought to himself that if he couldn't help up in the sky then he was going to help down here. He took the Red Lantern ring off his finger and placed it in his jean pocket, he took off running then turned the corner and saw Natara helping a victim but she couldn't free the man's leg so he ran over and helped lift the object off the man's leg. They helped the man up then placing one arm around their shoulders helped him to a waiting ambulance.
Zane closed the doors then slapped the door telling the driver he was clear to leave, "Slick where the hell have you been for the pass five days?" she asked him but he didn't hear her for he was too busy looking around then he saw a woman who was pointing up so he looked up to see a young girl but what had caught his eye was the smoke coming out the window. He took of sprinting; he shoulder blocked the door opened then ran up the steps. He came to the door then without thinking he grabbed the handle but to his surprise it wasn't hot so he threw the door opened only to be blasted backwards by a force.
He clenched his chest in pain; he looked up to see the little girl walk out but then the girl changed into his former master and Red Lantern Atrocitus. "Somehow you broke my control over you… but don't worry soon you'll be back where you belong at my side" said Atrocitus with a smirk; the sound of footstep could be heard coming up the steps. Both men turned their attention to see Natara running up the last flight of steps but she immediately stops when she sees Atrocitus standing there and Zane lying on the ground.
Zane looked and saw that Atrocitus raise his arm to blast her with his ring so he jumped up then tackled him into the room.
The Guardians along with Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner where watching the events on Earth unfold. "Are we seriously not going to help them?" asked Kyle who was shocked to learn of the battle on his home planet, he was even more shocked after learning of Zane being brainwashed to join the Red Lantern Corps and that The Guardians had done nothing to save him.
The Guardians were silent then suddenly the Guardian known as Ganthet, who had recruited Kyle Rayner into the Lantern Corp but also the one who took Zane's ring lifted his hand in which he still held the ring and said, "Return to your owner", the ring along with Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner took off towards Earth to help their friends.
Zane goes flying backwards after once again Atrocitus blasted him in the chest, he waited for Atrocitus to come and end his life. He looked up just in time to see his former master point his ring at him but before he could blast Zane again he was knocked back by a green light. Zane snapped his head behind him to see Kyle Rayner. "I think this belongs to you," he said before tossing something to Zane, which he caught. He opened his palm and then smiled when he saw his old Green Lantern ring sitting in the palm of his hand.
Without hesitation he put the ring on his finger, he heard Atrocitus approach him from behind. Just as he put the ring on he was once again covered in his Green Lantern suit with the new addition of a green hood with a black trim. He spun around and blasted Atrocitus out the right of the building; Zane flew right at him tackling him to the roof of the opposite building. "Ah so the Guardians have returned your stolen ring" Atrocitus with growl then he said, "I guess there is now no use for you…. Time for you to die" he bashed Zane in the side of the head knocking him off of him. He goes to attack Zane again but Zane's brother John shows up just in time to save him.
"You handle Atrocitus…. I have someone else to deal with," Zane said before flying off in the opposite direction. He flew until he found the Red Lantern known as Abyssma fighting both Superman and Aquaman. He sees that Abyssma was about to land a blow to a down Aquaman so he blasted him backwards, he then flew at him and hit him with a shoulder block. "This is between me and you Abyssma," he snarled,
"Ah Razor…. Or should I say Zane" replied Abyssma who flew at Zane then took a swing at him only for Zane to duck then land an uppercut to his chin. Zane grabbed him then brought his knee up into his gut knocking the wind out of Abyssma, he then used his power ring and slammed Abyssma down on the ground then spun him around then threw him into the air, Zane flew into the air to met the falling Abyssma then using his power ring to form a hammer he bashed Abyssma in the chest making him hit the ground hard. Zane flew down to meet both Superman and Aquaman.
"It is good to have you back my friend," said Aquaman who placed his hand on Zane's shoulder,
"It's good to be back," replied Zane, the three then took off to check on John who was still in battle with Atrocitus. When they reached the spot of the battle they saw that John was holding his own against the Red Lantern Leader. Sam and Hawkgirl soon joined them. They watched as Atrocitus knocked John backwards and then was about to go for the killing blow when he was stabbed though the chest from behind. This was a shock to everyone, they all watched as Atrocitus' body fell forward to reveal his killer and it was Sinestro who had smile on his face.
"This is to the Green Lantern formally known as Razor…. I will return to Earth in six days and on that day we will battle and one of us will die"
