I am reading the DC Event Rise of the Third Army and i find it lacking. Don't get me wrong am enjoying Simon Baz and though i am a huge Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner fan i don;t mind their apparent ends, (trying not to spoil anything). I always prefer darker Guardians of the Universe and this story arc has them the darkest. All this being sad it just seems to be lacking something. Can anyone tell me what it is...?
I agree. And i think that it's because there isn't exactly a connection across the issues, and lack of a centralized villain. There isn't one leader of the Third Army, if there was it would defeat the Third Armies' purpose. The Guardians as villains work, but it's an entity. Star Wars wouldn't be as thrilling if there wasn't a Darth vader.
Blackest Night had Black Hand, Scar and Nekron
Sinestro Corp War has Sinestro and the Anti-Monitor and Superboy Prime
War of the Green Lanterns had Krona
Rise of the Third Army has... The Guardians adn the the Third aRmy.
