When Hawkman triggered the overlord switch in #588, it sent Superman 400,000 light years from Earth, where he is found by Arisia of the Green Lantern Corps. Superman and the Corps then team up to stop the mystical menace that Superman thought was stopped when he teamed up with the Phantom Stranger.
