The Red Lantern Oath

Posted in Red Lantern Corps by mrread7 on November 25, 2008

I thought I would look at a basic thing with the Red Lantern Corps today. Well, not that basic, it’s the Red Lantern Oath after all. They can’t power their rings without it. It takes more than blood after all:
“With blood and rage of crimson red…
…ripped from a corpse so freshly dead…
…together with our hellish hate….
….we’ll burn you all….

Now, with both the Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps Oath, their oaths reflect not only what they do but also with what they fight against. Both the Blackest Night and Blackest Day are the same thing as is the Brightest Day and Brightest Night. For the Red Lantern Corps, since their powers are based on rage and blood, it’s their unchecked anger that allows them to power up. They want revenge on those who have done them wrong. In this case, the Sinestro and Green Lantern Corps and those associated with them. They don’t care what happens, as long as their is revenge, that’s all they care about.
