Plot summary

The story retells Alan Scott's origin, with Kyle Rayner in the role of Scott. Set in New York City in the year 1888, political cartoonist Kyle Rayner, a.k.a. "Rain or Shine", discovers an old green lantern in a pawnshop one day. Inside the lantern is a magical green ring which, when charged, grants Kyle unlimited power. Becoming the Green Lantern, a symbol of hope for the downtrodden immigrant masses of New York, Kyle lashes back against the forces of Boss Tweed and the corrupt Tammany Hall, all the while romancing political suffragist Carol Ferris and dealing with psychopathic hoodlum Alan Scott and Carol's policeman fiancé, Hal Jordan.
