Green Lantern #6

Hal Jordan's undercover operation to infiltrate the Darkstars comes to an end, although what happens to the universe's greatest Green Lantern is something that is left unexplained. Opening with an old fashioned duel between Hal and Adam Strange, the Darkstar recruit manages to fake Strange's death (in the kind of old school hero misdirection that is never adequately explained) and earn himself an audience with his new team's Controller Mu.

Here we discover that Hal's entire mission was a colossal waste of time as Mu easily saw through Hal's purpose for joining the team. However, his arrival at this time and place does alert the Guardians of the Universe to the threat of a U-Bomb which could wreak devastation across the universe. Ordered to destroy the device at all cost, Green Lantern goes to work.

Though we know the universe still exists, just what actions Hal took remain a mystery as is the fate of the Green Lantern. Just where have he, the Darkstars, and the U-Bomb been taken? For fans.
