[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_comics_greenlantern_johnsfinale_1575.jpg]]The second BatFamilyCrossover of the {{New 52}} Franchise/GreenLantern, and the final one written by GeoffJohns' run.

Having been freed from captivity by the [[ComicBook/RiseOfTheThirdArmy corrupt Guardians]], [[RealityWarper Volthoom]], the being who taught the Guardians about the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum to begin with and can manipulate it by himself without a RingOfPower, destroys the Third Army and goes about a plot to attempt to remake reality how he wants it to be, beginning with demoralizing every Corps leader. The ensuing struggle pits every single Corps against the Guardians of the Universe and the First Lantern, including some rejuvenated enemies and allies, and serves to create a new status quo.

* BackForTheFinale: ''Green Lantern'' #20 and how! Virtually every surviving character from throughout the Johns-era lends a hand -- or in this case ring -- in the final battle against Volthoom. [[spoiler: Even Nekron makes an encore appearance thanks to a Black Lantern Hal]].
** On a production level, many of the artists who worked on ''Green Lantern'' during the Geoff Johns-era return to lend a hand to artist Doug Mahnke for the finale.

** When Volthoom destroys the Third Army, he notes that it never really mattered. The comment lampshades that the Army was nothing more than a plot device to set up the First Lantern's introduction.
** [[spoiler:G'Nort]]'s entry to the GrandFinale, his first in the {{New 52}}, is noted with how it was "about time" he showed up, but it was better late than never.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Volthoom puts the prominent multi-colored Lanterns through emotional hell in order to harvest their despair. This, quite understandably, ends up pissing off everyone and [[spoiler: brings all the Corps into the final stand above Oa.]]
