Rage of The Red Lanterns

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

Written by Geoff Johns; Art and covers by Shane Davis and Sandra Hope.

The "War of Light" is finally kicking off and the prelude to "The Blackest Night" begins here!

They come from a place of great anger and hatred. They are the Red Lanterns and they will have their revenge against the greatest Green Lantern - Sinestro. That is, unless the Guardians have theirs first.

Also, just worth mentioning, check the population of Coast City on the last image...

Population = 2,686,164

2814 (Earth's Sector) + 666

Hmmm... intriguing....

Alright, moment of silence... now take a look at your av, picture yourself telling me or DC we don't make sense, when clearly, you are the one using a profound version of an oxymoron.

True...but DC loves that scene.

Who out of the bad guys on Earth would have enough rage and anger to be a cadidate for the Red Lanterns. Killer Croc maybe, all he wants to do he kill kill kill kill. If Fernus the Burning Martian was still around he would so be cool memeber. Or an early Doomsday before he got Kryptonian DNA spliced into him, around the time when he kicked Superman's ass.

This was really awesome. I can't wait for Light War to begin.

Johsn explained that happened due to the blue lanterns being the strongest ones of the corps (also the ones in less numbers) the guy that appeared at the end was charging Hal's ring

Dude, this is one of the best events in Comics i've had the pleasure of being a part of. An i can't wait to see this. Here is a preview for the next part. It looks amazing.  http://www.aintitcool.com/node/39547 , Geoff was serious about Atrocitus being the Alpha Male, and he makes Sinestro even more of a badass then he always was.

why couldnt doomsday still have enough rage to become one?

nice catch

Doomsday does still have enough rage in him to become a red lantern its just that he has a vulnerability to kryptonite since he has kryptonian DNA spliced into his own, unlike Superman it does not kill him or damage him it just hurts him. So that's why I said that.
