 I love Blackest Night but am sick sick sick of everyone assuming there will be a white lantern (or lanterns).

It's too easy to go there and I don't believe Geoff Johnns would.

If there's a damn white lantern I'll frickin wear white underpants (tighty whiteys) and run down the street.

That's how positive I am that isn't happening.

I agree it's too easy... but what if that's what they want you to think???

the next event is called brightest day with big white letters im thinking thats a clue
#8 Edited by captaincold1 (98 posts) - - Show Bio

Doesn't mean they'll go there. I think it represents all the lanterns coming together, not a white lantern or lanterns.

I'll take that bet. I guarantee there will be a White Lantern. It's too easy, and that is exactly why Johns WILL do it. It's extremely obvious that that is his intention with Brightest Day.

This. I think there will be only one (or a very small number of) White Lantern. The cover of the Brightest Day arc following Blackest Night pretty much confirms this for me.

I still don't believe that there's going to be a White Lantern either

You are not alone. I feel like I can see the future when I'm reading Blackest Night because it's so damn predictable.

@Nobody: meh. Company arcs are nothing but themes, and a way to keep continuity cleaned up/in check.
screw em. enjoy the individual stories for what they are and ignore the big picture i say.

I didn't really read anything Dark Reign, and Siege is set to be dropped if #2 isn't a vast improvement over the first issue. I've been reading a lot of WildStorm, Vertigo, and Avatar stuff lately. Marvel and DC just aren't putting out great stories, by and large. All these huge events hinder actual storytelling, IMO.

I'm going to go and say that some/all of the Black Lanterns will change into white ones after being hit with all the emotions spectrum.

If Siege is as bad as Marvel's previous two major arcs I may stop reading Marvel all together

Thats why Fantastic Four is one of my favorites coming out of Marvel right now. It isn't effected by huge events.

I am still waiting on the Beige Lanterns. Someone has to remain neutral.

@danhimself: the white left panel? my bad, which book is it from, i want to check go back and check that out.
(my running theory is that Hal will become the White, but im looking for evidence against it.)

@CATMANEXE:  I forget which book it's from but I'm pretty sure it's before Black Hand becomes a Black Lantern and he travels to the place where the Black power battery is and makes the first black ring or something like that

i thought that the blue lanterns stated they were the most powerful but for some reason multiple colored lanterns cant kill a black lantern with out a green lantern, but a green lantern and one or two other colored lanterns can kill a black lantern. Does that seem wrong to anyone else?

I think Hal and Barry will both become white lanterns

Hal won't become a White Lantern for the same reason he would not become a Blue Lantern he is to loyal to the Green Lantern Corps

But he was a blue lantern, and a red lantern, and an orange lantern. who says Hal being a white lantern will be permanent? I never said that.

agreed. i can see it at least temporarily, especially considering the cover of GL #50.
 
it would be cooler if there was a deep twist where it was Black hand, doubt it but nonetheless.
 
BTW: if your the "person" who got upset that i posted that picture thinking that was preview of a White Lantern...
grow up! (and at least have the sack to call me out here)

I believe Hal already stated he was going to leave the GLC sometime during Blackest Night. I could be wrong, though.

That's not indication of a ring. It's a symbol used for the Brightest Day "status Quo" like dark reign. There is nothing to indicate that this will be a whitle lantern symbol.

@danhimself:
Just because it's Black Hand, that does not mean that Black Hand won't be the white lantern, like somehow redeem himself or something. 
I think that would be cool, being that Black Hand is my favorite villain of all time.
