Dr Hammond gets powers from the gas in Abin Sur's ship, gains mental powers, kills some people and attacks Hal and Carol at the end of the issue.
Meanwhile, Sinestro shows up, has some snappy dialogue with Hal and Hal rushes off to the previously mentioned Hammond fight.
There's also a page or two of the Red Lantern alien reciting a corny oath that reveals Black Hand is the one with the power to bring about the Blackest Night.
That's it. I actually like Sinestro more than Hal after this retread of the origin. Would be nice to see him "team up" with Hal come Blackest Night somehow.
Verdict - Check It. Best of the Secret Origin issues so far, but only because of Sinestro. Still nothing new offered outside the two pages of Red Lantern stuff, which wasn't much. They still haven't provided enough new material to cover a single issue, which annoys me to no end. Should have just released this as a Year One special and fleshed out or progressed the actual story in the main book.
