How doesn one become a Black Lantern?

#1 Posted by wessaari (727 posts) - - Show Bio

now im not an expert in the green lantern mythos, but ive done some reading and i know that there are several lantern corps and tribes.

I know about Blackest Night and Brightest Day, but i have a question coming into the New 52 of things.

How does one become a Black Lantern? Recently in Green lantern 12, i hear that there is a prophecy that says, Hal Jordan will become the greatest Black Lantern, or maybe i heard wrong but that carries a question with it.

Does he have to die, can he find a way, or does it have to do something with the emotional spectrum. Any help would be nice

You must be dead and have ties to the living or be killed by a black lantern.
