I'm sure that DC is going to select many characters to be members of the Corps purely for the shock value of seeing them alive again.

Who do you think is going to be (or should be) recruited as members of the Black Lantern Corps. Which heroes, villains, people with or without powers would make for the most interesting (not necessarily the most shocking) plot twists?

Black Hand, but besides the obvious one I think Superboy.

That's the point--to have fun and guess ; )

Wait, Superboy isn't dead? I thought he died back in the Infinity Crisis battling Superboy Prime? I know they showed a possible future (clone) version in the Teen Titans, but I don't remember him coming back to life.

Superboy would be interesting (assuming he is dead as I thought). Along the same lines I was thinking Bart Allen. The reasoning would probably be the same: with the attachment that everyone had to him, think of how difficult it would be for everyone to fight him.

sorry, blame that on sleep dep...

but yeah, the clone Superboy died... but we all know he's coming back alive in a few years to have the major LEIGON storyline finished off for him...

Time Travel's a b!tc# ain't it lol

Bart's a good choice...

also Linda Danvers (Not sure if she's alive or dead, or somewhere inbetween currently...) and General Zod!!! that would really screw Superman over lol

can't see that one...

Kyle infused her with Ion energy when he brought her back to life, we know that other colored energy's are hesitant at best to interact with each other, Green energy won't even go near someone who's been tainted with Yellow energy... and Pink energy won't touch Green energy... and so on...

they're not alive... but they're not dead...

Didn't think of it that way, but perhaps black works differently. Black is the absence of color. It may not care.

M also said:

"General Zod!!! "

HOLY CRAP!!! Zod would be an INSANE choice for a Black Lantern

#17 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

ugh...

if we're counting the entire multiverse this could get very messy very quickly...

Thanks. I spend more time reading Marvel books, while reading certain DC titles. I get confused occasionally about the numbering and naming.

hmmmm the real reason DC killed so many characters of the multiverse since it wasbrought back is to use them as Black Lanterns :P

#39 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

2 other prospects...

Solomon Grundy

Thomas Wayne or Martha Wayne

either of those i can see really pissing Batman off enough for him to accept a power ring, at least temporarily...

i think it would be awesome to have superboy come back as a black lantern

#41 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not sure about the clone Superboy...

he has to come back at some point alive for his future in the Legion to come true...

what storyline are you talking about i don't remember that was it the one where they took him in to the future during his date with cassie?

ugh, i'll see if i can hunt the issue down...

it was one where the Legion came back in time and met the Superboy from this timeline (Think this was shortly after Final Night storyline), anyway they said that they had a message for this Superboy from himself in the future, but it was never made clear what the exact message was...

maybe they were talking about about the time when him and the titans went in too the future right before infinite crisis and with the legion continuity the way it is maybe they forgot about it

they probably forgot about it lol

time travel does that :p
