The Red Lantern Corps are an intergalactic force united by the red spectrum of anger. They were unwitting pawns of Lobo. He stole some of their newly forged rings and led them on a chase to Earth. Atrocitus, Bleez, Dex-Starr, Skallox, and Zilius Zox arrived outside the Watchtower demanding their property back. They waited while the League searched for the rings on Lobo. Dex-Starr infiltrated the Watchtower and let in his comrades. Lobo slipped the stolen rings out and made it seem like he was working for the League then attacked Skallox with his chain.
While the League and Lanterns fought, Lobo stole a powerful device called the Spider Gauntlet. They agreed to a temporary alliance. Ultimately, Batman and Dex-Starr were able to disarm Lobo. Atrocitus deemed the League provided the edge in battle and allowed the League to keep Lobo. They departed after Zox was finished groveling to Atrocitus. Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batman, Hawkman, Cyborg, and Martian Manhunter left the Watchtower through a Boom Tube to stop an impending Red Lantern invasion of Earth from happening.
Watchtower defense protocols were initiated and Plastic Man was left behind to dog sit Krypto. The Justice League actually fell for a diversion and Dex-Starr was sent ahead to Earth. Dex's mission was to infiltrate the Watchtower as a stray cat in need of help then he would use the tower's Mother Box to boom the Red Lanterns to Earth. Plastic Man was oblivious to the truth until it was too late. Dex-Starr rejected Plastic Man's weird cake and revealed himself to be a Red Lantern. Krypto bit his dog tag and set off a distress signal.
Streaky responded and was knocked through Krypto's room but his powers were restored. Dex collapsed the ceiling then returned to the Mother Box and triggered a Boom Tube. Streaky battled the Red Lanterns and Dex's stomach gurgled then he ran to the carrier. Streaky headbutted Atrocitus then fired heat vision at the Lanterns. It was Plastic Man in disguise and he took Dex's ring. Krypto was released and he turned off the Mother Box. The Lanterns were recalled as the tube closed.
