The Gremlins

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on January 23, 2008

Here they are, those nastly little guys known as the Gremlins of Krolot from sector 312. Now, funny story but Geoff Johns has kind of had a thing for writing about gremlins for a while. He even made points to a new villain the pages of the Vision mini series a few years back in Avengers. I also know that Geoff was a fan of the two movies and about the stories about how these little creatures supposedly caused havoc with airplanes during World War II. These gremlins are just as nasty as others talk about. A race of capitalist scientists from the planet Krolot known for their obsession with the re-engineering of technological and biological resources from other cultures. The Gremlins have been coming to Earth for man centuries and messing around with both people and machinery over the centuries. Their most known efforts was the evolution of Green Lantern rogues, Hector Hammon and the Shark. They returned later to continue their experiments on the Shark and Hector Hammon to sell as weapons in the Rann-Thanagar War. The also arrived in Coast City to repower fellow Green Lantern foe, Black Hand into a being able to absorb the very life force out of living creatures and twists it in his own image. The Gremlins were eventually stopped by Hal Jordan who released the Shark on them and then had the air force fire on their ship. They were then turned over to Sector 2812 Green Lanterns, Tagort and Venizz.
