A Green Lantern ringless and White Lantern ringless Kyler Rayner has been a key player in the critically acclaimed Omega Men mini-series.

Omega Men #1 opens with a look back at where the mini-series began.

Then a powered Kyle Rayner – the Omega White Lantern – frees the Omega Men from the Viceroy’s clutches.

In case you were wondering, Kyle Rayner reaquired the White Lantern ring from the unwilling head of the Citadel in Omega Men #9. See below.

Anyhow, back to Omega Men #12, the finale of the mini-series.

The freed Omega Men have the Viceroy in their clutches. Will Scarpps kill him?

Kyle Rayner also describes the Viceroy as the Alpha…

…yet this team are the Omega. Yes, a bit grown worthy, but works within the context of the issue.

The Viceroy is spared and the Omega Men appear to believe Kyle Rayner’s view that there is always a third way; its never death or life, black or white.

No Green Lantern ring for Kyle Rayner as he still has the White Lantern ring. Yet, no Kyle Rayner in the splash page of DC Universe: Rebirth #1. Hmmm. Will we see this addressed in Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1? Preview below.

What is this war coming to Earth mentioned in Omega Men #12? What DC Comics Rebirth title will that story take place in?

Anyhow, perhaps unrelated, but here’s DC Comics first Green Lantern offering for DC Rebirth.

Interesting how at the end of Omega Men #12 we have Kyle Rayner in the grips of the government and in Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1 we also have Simon Baz in the grips of (a different wing of {???}) the government.

Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1 hits stands on June 1, 2016. Hopefully we’ll know more about Kyle Rayner’s DC Rebirth fate next week!
