Superman calls on Green Lantern to help deal with the problem of a missing Pluto. A missing stellar body causes some big gravitational anomalies, so Kal enlists Kyle to help fix it. After a brief shower scene with Jade, Kyle is off to the rift in space where he uses asteroids to make a huge body to replace Pluto temporarily. When he is done he is confronted by Sinestro (who is supposed to be dead following Green Lantern #50). The two battle and Kyle eventually takes the renegade down, and is then stopped by Superman. Kyle blasts the image of Superman and gets really mad when the fake Sinestro disappears as well. Then Ganthet (the last remaining Guardian of the Universe, a little blue dwarf) appears and warns Kyle. Kyle leaves his new planet, never suspecting that the original Pluto is still there, cloaked and hidden. On Warworld, Brainiac-13 stands triumphant, having sent off more hard light constructs to keep Green Lantern from finding the real Pluto. Back in his apartment Kyle talks to Jen about his increasing power and the two end up curled up on the couch.

4Story - 4: I enjoyed the story, but unless you are a die-hard fan like me, buy something else instead and just page through this one. My very brief summary pretty much does this tie-in justice.

5Art - 5: Very nice stuff. His Superman wasn't the best ever, but his Jade gives him an auto-five.

2Cover Art - 2: I didn't like it. Too dark and not enough about the issue. Where's Sinestro and Warworld. I gather that all the OWAW one-shots have this dark look to their covers but it really doesn't appeal to me.
