The Green Lantern Corps Podcast

Tales from the crypt, Morro

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on May 4, 2008

Well, I’m closing up the weekend and my profiles on the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps for a while. With Final Crisis kicking off in a couple of weeks and everything about to go down with War of the Light in a few months. I wanted to focus on other things instead of weekly GLC or SC profiles. So, let’s take a look at the crypt keeper for the Green Lantern Corps, Morro. Believe it or not this GL comes form Sector 666, which has been referred to a lot lately. Now, while Morro comes from a desert planet that has nothing to do with the massacre that happened in that sector. Something both the Black Lanterns and the Red Lanterns keep relating too a lot.

The Green Lantern from the planet Sarc, and his four pets, called Dratures, volunteer as cryptkeepers on the Corps’ Memorial. Guy Gardner revealed to Kyle Rayner that Morro requested his duty as penance, as he killed his pets’ mother in rage when he wrongfully thought it ate his brother. His first act of amending his mistake was to adopt the creature’s offspring as his own, then later, as a Green Lantern after the war, to be the Corps’ cryptkeeper. Morro is capable of combat and hunting without his ring, and his primary choice of weapon is his mallet. His Dratures are fearsome dragon-like creatures loyal to their master and ready to aid him. They are not aware of Morro’s hands in killing their mother and he seems to treat them almost like his own children. He is constantly in the crypt polishing and maintaining the statues of the fallen members of the Green Lantern Corps. His ring constructs are very fluid and sleek because he wants to keep things organized and polished.

There we go, join me next time as I go over both Countdown and Death of the New Gods as Final Crisis comes closer to being released.
