Synopsis:
Inadvertently sent through hyperspace by Hawkwoman, Superman is found by Arisia and revived by Kilowog.

The Earth-based members of the Green Lantern Corps are trying to find a home for sentient worms called Therils.

While the invading Thanagarian fleet has gone out of Earth space through hyperspace, there is a giant bacterial life form that is the remains of what Superman cast into space in issue #585.

Ultimately he GLs combine their will with Superman's and turn the life form into a planetoid suitable for the Therils to live on.
