Unique Black Power Ring Abilities?

#1 Posted by King Hyperion (3715 posts) - - Show Bio

So far we've seen that different Power Rings have unique abilities that the Green Lantern Ring is incapable of (i.e., Red Rings spew Liquid Fire, Blue Rings can make dying Stars younger, Violet Rings can create a tether between souls that allows a Star Sapphire to arrive at a destination where Love is being threatened as quickly as possible) so what I am wondering is what unique abilities do you think the Black Power Rings will be capable of? We already know that they can reanimate the Dead but do you think they'll have any other special powers that could give The Black Lanterns an advantage over their opponents?

i suppose they can absorb life force like the black hand could.

Some how I think they have the power to drain the power of the other rings of the color spectrum.

We all know, well some, that Black is the absences of colour and I agree with Kull, I think there light will be useless. But that we be a scientific view. Not a comic one.

i agree with supreme marvel and kull. Black can fade out and cover all other colors i thikn it will be able to absorb the energy in the ring as well as the life energy of people

An' 'cause o' tha'  how will are heroes prevail?
I think it'll be like CoIE. Introduction of the Monitor and then the Anit-Monitor.
In this, the introduction of the Black Lanterns and then the introduction of the White Lanterns! :D

i think they'll have something beyond that, probably life force draining or power dampening as said above, those two make the most sense to me

Either way they are deffinately gonna be incredibly dangerous to the other lantern corps as even if the blue lanterns use their ability to keep the other rings at max charge they might get drained and loose the ability to do so.

I think Blue Rings are gonna be what keep the Greens and possible the yellows in the war.

Indeed the Blue rings have the strongest lights but the biggest weaknesses as well I mean come on.

1. The require a green lantern near by to use it.

2. Their constructs are based on the Psychosis of their target not what they wish them to be.

i think the blue lantern corps should have 4 or 5 of them die and the main green lantern characters the comics follow should get blue and green rings.

how do you think a blue ring around ion will effect him?

ooohhh, that should be interesting. ION power level WTF?

I wonder who will be the Blue Lantern of sector 2814?

i think that the black rings should reanimate the dead and drain there life force they can't drain other rings powers because thats what the orange ring does i believe and i think the orange light cant drain the blue power ring.... XD!!!!

I hope that the users remain consciousness of their former selves because just being flying zombies doesn't cut it

Hell Yeah!! Sodom Yat would be even more overpowered than Supes.......if he wasn't missing!

I think it would be cool if the black power rings could cause a sense of despair in the other lanterns, making it harder for them to concentrate and use their own abilities.

Anyone then think he could be inducted as a Black Lantern then? Assuming that the Legion of 3 Worlds story where he is the Last Guardian of the Universe turns out to be non-canon? Sodom Yat as a Black Lantern.....just crazy.

Furthermore, with Yat gone, who do you think is next in line for the Ion power then? I say give it to Hal Jordan, complete with another Blur Power ring.

Legion of 3 worlds is non canon?

I dont think he will come back as a black lantern. I dont think they actually killed him off, either he will come back to fight the black hand since he is ion and can match power with him equally or he would become a blacklantern with ion inside, making him double powerful (im not sure if that could happen tho)

#24 Posted by Supreme Marvel (11263 posts) - - Show Bio

He's not dead, I don't believe that for one second! He'll be back! And I think a lot more powerful than ever!

do the Black lantern rings drain? because when they revive the person their energy level is suposedly 0% and with every kill i rises 1% i say that their power should be that their ring dosent drain and they become more and more powerful with each person they kill.
