While this collection has stories from all the various corps it doesn't have much cohesion. The talented roster of creators do good work but I'm not sure any of the stories are very memorable, especially compared to the epic things going on in the Green Lantern books at the time. Throw in an adventure by Super-Prime, who I might hate more than anyone fictional, and you have a pretty basic filler collection. Decent to flip though but not buy, especially for the price.
