Justice League: Generation Lost Issue #13 Cover-2

Magog ambushed Captain Atom, Blue Beetle, and Booster Gold in a robotics laboratory hidden beneath the streets of Chicago. The Captain recognised that there was something different about Magog’s Lance (which had been “upgraded” by Max). It was emitting a form of unstable energy that was disrupting Atom’s powers and the technologies in Booster and Beetle’s suits. The radiation levels are so high that Beetle, acting under the Captain’s order, drags Booster away to safety. Captain Atom and Magog are then left to settle the matter between themselves, but Atom has difficulties absorbing the Lance’s deadly radiation.

The battle carries Atom and Magog onto the streets of Chicago, but Magog’s abandon threatens the surrounding civilians. Atom tries to protect the innocent civilians by surrendering, but Magog refuses to stand down. Atom finally stands his ground and grapples with Magog draining the energy from his Lance. He forces Magog to remember who gave him his orders by shouting “You are a soldier! Not an assassin!” The energies pouring out of the Lance even bring Magog to his knees, but he finally remembers everything who Maxwell Lord is and how he has been tricked into attacking another hero.

Max suddenly appears in person. He complements Captain Atom on breaking Magog, but finishes the job himself. Max uses his mind control to make Magog point his Lance at his own head. Magog pleads, but Max refuses to listen and forces him to blow his own head off. Max then hears the voice of the White Lantern telling him “Maxwell Lord of Earth. You have stopped the war before it starts. Mission accomplished. Life returned.” Max then vanishes, but not before with telepathically convincing the onlookers that it was actually Captain Atom who murdered Magog. Suddenly Magog’s Lance flares-up again unleashing all its stored energy like a bomb. Atom desperately absorbs its energy, saving the city, but it overwhelms him and he is thrown into the time stream.
