The Guardian Herupa Hando Hu and the Zamaron Nadia Safir came to earth to find ten people to propel earth into the new millennium. The only problem is the were very bitter about how they were treated after the Guardians abandoned them when the formed the Green Lantern Corps. The Manhunters lied in wait for centuries waiting for this moment they had sleeper agents all over the universe including earth and they did everything they could to stop Herupa and Nadia from fulfilling their duty.
Janwillem Kroef was the seventh to be visited by Herupa and Nadia. Just like all of the chosen Herupa and Nadia told her in her own language that “We have chosen ten people on earth to advance the human race, and one of the ten is you! The heroes and heroines of earth join us in asking you to leave this life and enter the future” While trying to convice him a Grillian Mind Probe gets stuck on his head due to the actions of Ted Kord and Mr. Miracle. Kilowog is able to get it off but Janwillem flat out refused to help Herupa and Nadia.
