"Hey Clark, where did you learn to drive?" Jim asked.
"Do you want a ride home or not?" Clark said.
"Yeah. Hey what is that?" Jim asked pointing ahead toward the road.
"I don't know, but we have to find out."
"Not me!" Jim shouted as he ran off.
"Looks like it is up to me."
Clark jumped out of his truck and went to some foreign ship resembling a
plane. He looked in the cockpit to find an unconscious alien of sorts. Then, a
projection started to talk to him. it appeared to be coming from the alien's
"Clark Kent, I am dying, I must find a suitable bearer for the ring. You,
my friend, are that bearer. Your actions as Superman have proved you just and
worthy of the power ring. Take this ring and go to the planet Oa for further
Clark took the ring. "What am I supposed to do with this" he thought. As
he thought, an image of a rocket popped into his head. Out of the ring came
the rocket, just the same as he had imagined. "This must be my rocket to Oa"
he thought. Clark climbed in and went shooting across the galaxy to Oa.
There Clark learned what was bestowed onto him. He was to be the next
Green Lantern for Sector 2184. The Guardians there helped Clark get used to
his ring. The rings only limit were the color yellow and it was limited to his
will power. The willpower was of no problem, after all he was Superman.
Clark went back to Earth with his new found power. He did the Superman
thing as well as the Green Lantern thing. Clark was the envy of every
superhero, not only was he the most powerful among them, but now he had a
power ring to boot. He came in handy though as the heroes, as well as most
other beings in the cosmos would soon learn.
This went about for many years, and soon Earth's mightiest heroes were
targeted by a seemingly unstoppable being know as Doomsday. Most people
assumed Superman, who was off planet when this beast arrived, would come home
soon and vanquish the monster. This was not to be. For even when Superman
heard of the monster, he was light years away and it would take him more then
6 days to return home at his fastest. The monster ravaged the Justice League
and with it the world's hope. Heroes died. The Batman, Blue Beetle, Captain
Atom, all gone. Many more followed the same path.
When Superman did finally return even Superman was defeated. He was not
dead, he just lost the charge on his ring in mid battle, a battle in which he
was winning until the ring gave way.
"NO! I NEED MORE POWER!!!" Superman screamed.
The monster took this time to escape with its life. Superman, who needed more
power to save the Earth, went to Oa as fast as he has ever gone, pushing
himself to the limits. For every hour he was gone, that many more heroes
When he got to Oa he demanded more power, he demanded access to get as
much as he needed to stop this beast. If this meant getting into the battery
and absorbing the power into his body, then that is what he wanted.
The Guardians would not allow it. They said it was against their rules.
"YOUR RULES!! YOUR RULES!! IF I DON'T GET THIS POWER, ALL OF EARTH WILL
PERISH!" Superman screamed.
"No." The Guardians said calmly, as if nothing was happening.
Superman would not be pushed over this time, he incinerated all the Guardians
with his heat vision and flew into the battery.
The power was overwhelming. It flew into Superman's body. He had the
power he needed.
He flew back to Earth in a rage, angry with Doomsday with what he was
doing to all of Superman's friends.
"It all stops here monster, one way or another" Superman said calmly.
"Arg?" Doomsday retorted as he leaped at Superman.
Superman blasted the monster with a blast of green energy. Superman put
all of his will and anger into that one blast. It incinerated the beast in an
The world rejoiced while Superman felt grief over the lose of all his
friends. He wasn't there for them when they needed him. He could never forgive
himself for his inability to be there for all his friends.
He decided that he had to make things right, he had the power and the
will, as well as the drive. He would use all his power to make things right,
go back in time and make things right.
When he did this he caused a time rift and it eventually destroyed the
So you see, any way you look at it a man who was a former Green Lantern
was bound to destroy Earth. With half the heroes wiped out when Doomsday came
about, there were not as many heroes when Superman caused the time rift.
Therefore, Superman could not be stopped, and he destroyed Earth.
