The universe once depended on the Green Lantern Corps for protection against the evils that threatened it. But since that organization disbanded, the cosmos has been left undefended. Until now. Vril Dox, ancestor of the Legion of Super-Heroes' Brainiac 5, conceives a plan for a new intergalactic police force to fill the void left by the death of the Green Lantern Corps. Forged in the fires of the INVASION, a rag-tag team of paranormal aliens will grow into a tough, no-nonsense law enforcement organization with a cosmic scope. Some will be beings unfamiliar to you. Others will be present-day ancestors of the Legion of Super-Heroes. All will be the finest heroes the universe has to offer.
