Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and Tomar-Re are assisted by newly deputized Green Lantern Charley Vicker as they find and disable a fortress of aliens on a prison planet. The aliens are re-imprisoned. The prisoners were lead by earth criminal Al Magone, and were using one of the alien robots as the power source for Mini-Nucleo weapons that neutralize the emerald power and allowed them to kill Green Lanterns across the universe. Charley Vicker is given his own space sector to patrol, but it is not named.
