You dropped the Bombshell on me

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on December 30, 2008

Finishing up the quantum powered characters that have been involved with Green Lantern at one time or another. I take a look at the last of the Teen Titans’ traitors, Amy Allen, better known as Bombshell. The young Allen, who was plagued with problems due to her parents’ military backgrounds. Being manipulated by both of them, Deathstroke and SHADE. Originally known as Lt. Atom, Amy was part of a special task force that was forced into the Teen Titans to spy on them for Deathstroke. While SHADE believed they were gathering information on the group of heroes this way. Slade WIlson was using her to find the disk containing the soul of his son, Jericho. After Amy was discovered, Deathstroke’s Titans East went out and assassinated her but due to her powers. She was able to heal her injuries.

Amy Allen was recruited into a rogue military black ops unit when she was arrested for assault and battery and faced jail time. This rogue group made a habit of accepting dubious freelance contracts in addition to their own projects. Using the same extra-terrestrial metal that comprises Captain Atom’s skin, the group grafted the metal onto Amy’s human skin. At that moment, the quantum-wielding powerhouse known as Bombshell was born. Unknown to Amy, “Project Quantum” was run by her father, Colonel Allen. He was the one who selected Amy to be transformed with quantum energy in lieu of a prison sentence. ter Superboy’s tragic death during the Infinite Crisis, the Teen Titans faced a year of heartache and turmoil. Deathstroke saw this as an opportunity to infiltrate the group and retrieve the computer disk which contained the spirit of his son, Jericho. To that end, Deathstroke hired Bombshell to join the Titans in a mission to liberate his son. Once in the tower, Bombshell stole the Jericho disk, only to have it stolen from her by Raven.

The reorganized Titans later tracked down Bombshell over the South China Sea as they searched for the missing Raven. Bombshell accused Ravager of betraying the team, while Raven successfully brought back Jericho by using one of Brother Blood’s resurrection rituals. Once the team located Raven and Jericho, Bombshell was revealed as a the real traitor. Through the combined might of the Titans, Bombshell’s quantum metal skin was shattered, leaving her powerless.

Having betrayed the Teen Titans as well “Project Quantum”, Amy Allen was taken into custody to await trial. Cyborg and Miss Martian later returned to interrogate Allen, still curious to discover who she was working for. Before she revealed any information on Deathstroke, Allen had her throat slit by a mind-controlled Batgirl, who had just joined Deathstroke’s nefarious Titans East team. Amy was believed to be dead, but her quantum powers successfully regenerated her body, enabling her to re-ignite her Bombshell abilities. The alien metal was no mere shell, but now actually now a part of Amy’s physiology.

Since Bombshell’s public arrest made her a liability, it made her a target of the very group that created her. Once on the run, Amy sought out her mother, who told Amy that her father was the one who secretly selected her for “Project Quantum”. Upon learning this, Bombshell tracked down Colonel Allen to confront him. Although their reunion was strained, it became clear Amy’s father was trying to protect her.

With nowhere to go, Robin granted Bombshell temporary sanctuary at Titans Tower. it was revealed that the one behind the attempts on Amy’s life are none other than her own mother, the new head of Project Quantum.

Will Bombshell truly find redemption or will she become a SHADE puppet again under guide by her mother? We’ll find out.

Captain Atom from hero to Monarch

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on December 29, 2008

With Major Force covered, I thought I would profile his opposite number, Captain Atom. This atomic powered character has been around for over 45 years. However, he is probably one of the DC Universe’s biggest whipping boys. He gained popularity during J.M Demantis and Keith Giffen’s run on Justice League in the 80s. However, even during those days, Atom started a downward slide. At one point he was to become the villain known as Monarch for Armageddon 2000. However, worked leaked for the series and they switched Monarch out to be Hank Hall, who would become the villain, Extant. In doing so, two heroes were ruined. Extant went on for next decade as a poorly written villain that was finally killed off in JSA. And Captain Atom… where do you want me to start? A few good stories showed up, but he was killed and showed up again and again thanks to his powers causing a time jump (yes, that is confusing). In the last two years, Captain Atom found a little justice and then became Monarch. His motivations and reasons for becoming Monarch made sense at first but then… I’ll let Wiki tell you the whole story:

The Charlton Comics version of Captain Atom was Allen Adam. The character’s origin had Adam working in a special experimental rocket when it accidentally launched with him trapped inside. Entering the upper atmosphere, the rocket exploded and Adam was atomized. However, he somehow gained superpowers that included the ability to reform his body safely on the ground. He was outfitted in a red and yellow costume that apparently acted to shield people from his nuclear powers. When he “powered up”, his hair changed to silver-white. Later, in his own title, he replaced this costume with a liquid-metal outfit that was under his skin, and transformed when he powered up. Captain Atom’s powers were similar to such other nuclear-powered superheroes as Gold Key’s Doctor Solar and Dell Comics’ Nukla. Captain Atom was first published in a series of short stories in the anthology series Space Adventures # 33-40 (March 1960-June 1961) and # 42 (October 1961). Charlton began reprinting his short adventures in the anthology Strange Suspense Stories beginning with #75 (June 1965), renaming the title Captain Atom with #78 (Dec. 1965) and giving the hero full-length stories and supervillain antagonists (previous stories involved Cold War anti-Communist missions or dealing with aliens). Captain Atom later teamed with the superhero Nightshade. The superhero Blue Beetle starred in the initial backup feature, later replaced by a Nightshade backup series.
Captain Atom was canceled with issue #89 (Dec. 1967). In 1975, the unfinished Ditko art for issue #90 was inked by John Byrne and published in the first two issues of the official Charlton fanzine, Charlton Bullseye, as the 10-page “Showdown In Sunuria” (writer: Jon G. Michels) and the 11-page “Two Against Sunuria” (writer: Roger Stern). Captain Atom next appeared in issue #7 (May 1982) of the new-talent showcase comic also called Charlton Bullseye, in a story by writer Benjamin Smith and artist/co-writer Dan Reed, which for some reason returned him to his original red-yellow outfit. The character’s last pre-DC appearance was in AC Comics’ one-shot Americomics Special #1 (Aug. 1983), in a story teaming the Charlton “Action Heroes” Blue Beetle, Captain Atom, Nightshade, and The Question as the Sentinels of Justice. This last story had originally been done for Charlton before the company folded.
The actual Charlton characters made their re-appearance in the DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths, which introduced Earth-Four as the native reality of Captain Atom on which he had had all his Charlton era adventures. By the series end, Earth-Four (and the Charlton characters) was incorporated into the Post-Crisis DC Universe. The last appearance of this Charlton-era Captain Atom was in DC Comics Presents #90 (February 1986).

A new, post-Crisis version of the character was introduced in 1986 with the launch of a monthly comic written by Cary Bates (long-time writer of The Flash and Superman), co-written by Greg Weisman and drawn by Pat Broderick.
This modern captain’s name was established as Nathaniel Christopher Adam, a United States Air Force officer of the Vietnam War era. Adam had been framed for a crime he didn’t commit and sentenced to death under the watch of Col. Wade Eiling in 1968. As an alternative to execution, he was invited to participate in a military experiment with little chance of survival, in exchange for a presidential pardon. The experiment involved testing the hull of a crashed alien ship’s durability by exploding a super nuclear bomb under it. Adam survived as the metal melted into his body and the excess energy threw him forward in time 18 years (not incidentally, this coating with alien metal gave the revised character a full-body silvered metal look distinctly different from his previous incarnations).
Regaining coherence in 1986, Adam found himself a man out of his time and in the hands of Eiling, now a general and the second husband of Adam’s now-deceased wife. Everyone had assumed that Nathaniel Adam had died on the day of the experiment, so his presidential pardon was never issued and the current government refused to acknowledge the previous administration’s promised pardon. Seizing the opportunity at hand, the government used the outstanding murder/treason charges against Adam to blackmail him into being a government-controlled superhero codenamed Captain Atom. The events of the Charlton stories were established as simply the cover story for Adam, who also was assigned the alias of Cameron Scott, an Air Force intelligence operative. It was during this time he met the superpowered terrorist, Plastique, who would become a recurring part of Nathaniel’s life.
Upon his initial return from the Quantum Field, Nathaniel Adam was portrayed as the classic “man out of his time”. Early conflicts involved him coming to terms with his lost time with his children (who were now close to his current age as a result of the time jump), the death of his wife (who had married his nemesis Eiling prior to dying), and the overall ramifications of his newly acquired powers.

Atom/Adam served under Eiling reluctantly, while succeeding in clearing his name. Eventually, Atom rebelled against Eiling, resigned from the Air Force, and found some fulfillment as an actual superhero. Captain Atom joined the Justice League at the request of the U.S. government, eventually serving as leader of Justice League Europe. During his career he had a brief romance with Catherine Cobert, developed a friendly “rivalry” with Firestorm, become involved with and eventually married to Plastique (ironically, a one-time Firestorm foe), battled Major Force (his would-be successor), learned basic heroics from Batman when he briefly lost access to the Quantum Field, and commanded the metahuman forces during the Invasion storyline.
In 1991, Captain Atom was canceled with #57, as Atom was slated to become the hero-turned-villain Monarch in DC’s Armageddon 2001 crossover event; however, when word of this leaked out, DC changed the ending at the last minute. Atom and the Monarch character continued battling through time in Armageddon: The Alien Agenda limited series, until he was returned to his own time at the conclusion. Captain Atom then returned to the League, founding an offshoot team, Extreme Justice in 1995. While leading Extreme Justice, Captain Atom came across another version of Monarch, this one claiming to be the real Nathaniel Adam. Later in 1999, he was a member of the poorly-received all-Charlton-character group L.A.W. In 2003, he again teamed up with several former members of the Justice League as the “Super Buddies” in the humorous limited series Formerly Known as the Justice League. Around this time, various stories reintroduced Atom’s conflict between his role in the superhero community and his responsibilities as a government agent.

At some point, Atom’s marriage to Plastique appears to have ended in separation or divorce. Apart from a brief mention of her at the beginning of L.A.W., the marriage appears to be forgotten. Plastique has reappeared in 2006 as a villainess again, undoing her reformation into a heroine. A later confirmation is brought in by the Captain Atom: Armageddon miniseries in which, after falling in love with Angela Spica of the Authority, Captain Atom reminisces about his short marriage with Plastique, and attributes their divorce to their irreconcilable views about world and politics, since Nathaniel, even in his spousal life, couldn’t stop to be a loyal soldier of the U.S.A., and Plastique couldn’t simply put aside her life as a terrorist.
Later in 2003, writer Jeph Loeb returned Captain Atom to his roots as he went back to work for the government, this time for President Lex Luthor in the first story arc of the Superman/Batman series. Atom seemingly sacrificed his life to save Superman and Earth by piloting a starship to destroy a kryptonite meteor, but as it had previously been established that this type of accident could not kill him, he soon returned to life and to the background of the DC Universe. In a 2005 issue of Superman/Batman it was made clear that Captain Atom survived the collision with the kryptonite meteor, but after absorbing massive amounts of radiation and becoming a super villain described as a “Kryptonite Man”; the radiation was siphoned out of Captain Atom by a device made by Hiro Okamura (the new Toyman) which returned Captain Atom to his usual self (if somewhat confused).

Becoming Monarch

In 2005/2006, Captain Atom appeared in a nine-part limited series entitled Captain Atom: Armageddon under DC’s Wildstorm imprint. Captain Atom’s sacrifice in Superman/Batman sent him to the WildStorm universe for the duration of the series. In this title, he wore the yellow/red outfit seen in the Kingdom Come limited series.
At the moment of his apparent death, Captain Atom experienced a time-shift coinciding with his 2005 appearance in Superman/Batman, resulting in his arrival in the Wildstorm Universe. He quickly gets into a fight with an overzealous Mister Majestic and the fight ended with Majestic soundly defeated. Seeing the frightened reactions of onlookers, and puzzling over his own altered appearance, he realizes that he has somehow become trapped on an alternate Earth, one where superheroes are feared by the general populace. Mistaken by the local super-heroes as the force destined to destroy their universe, he was in fact an instrument used ultimately by Nikola Hanssen, new host for half the essence of the Void, to reclaim her whole power (partially lodged in his own body, and cause of his altered appearance) and use it to trigger the reboot of the WildStorm universe, in the WorldStorm event.

Captain Atom was returned to the DC Universe in Infinite Crisis #7 when Superboy-Prime punctured his Earth-Eight counterpart Breach. Confusingly, the end of Armageddon has him reappear in the devastated Blüdhaven. One Year Later, Captain Atom is revealed to be contained inside Blüdhaven and used to administer radiation treatments to metahumans. Apparently Void, able to finally let him go home, was unable to ensure his safety, and multiple damages on his radiation-shielding skin had left him comatose and unable to keep down his body radiations to safe levels; this forced the Atomic Knights to keep him constantly contained. In 2008’s Countdown #8, it is learned that these ruptures were caused as part of a greater plan by Solomon the Monitor, in his plans to “recreate the Monarch” as part of a larger scheme to force the assimilation of the other Monitors.
After being fitted with an updated version of the Monarch armor (Armageddon 2001) to contain his radiation, the Captain awakens. Seeming to be mentally unstable, he breaks free, apparently kills the rampaging Major Force, and then releases a vast amount of energy, obliterating what was left of Blüdhaven. He remains missing until Kyle Rayner, then known as Ion, discovers him in The Bleed, a place between dimensions. The Captain indicates that he is traveling through The Bleed in order to operate outside the gaze of the Monitors. He discusses his time in the Wildstorm Universe, and his desire to visit other alternate worlds.

onarch appears in the last panel of Countdown #45. He appears to be observing Forerunner. Countdown #44 bears a cover by Ed Benes with the Monarch armor, as in the same issue Monarch manages to sway Forerunner to his side, turning her against the Monitors. Monarch argues that the Monitors are genocidal overlords who must be defeated; however, the Monitors assert that Monarch is a supervillain whose plan is to cause a Multiversal war which will leave him the ruler of the unified Earth remaining in its wake. Monarch creates an army of footsoldiers, including the Extremists of Earth-8, the JL-Axis of Earth-10 and the Crime Society of Earth-3, and disposes of Forerunner when he reveals his plans for a multiversal arena tournament.
The 4-issue miniseries Countdown: Arena features Monarch battling alternate versions of characters throughout the Multiverse to compile the strike team for his new Multiverse army, specifically one Superman, one Batman, a Wonder Woman, a Green Lantern, a Flash, a Blue Beetle, a Nightshade, a Starman, and a Ray. Monarch’s behavior becomes increasingly violent, notably killing the Eve of Shadows’ country for attempting to violate the Monarch’s rule of “no escaping.” Monarch is now paranoid, and unwilling to share details of his past to his “subordinates”, the Red Son Superman and Liberty Files Batman are able to discern that under the Monarch armor lies another Captain Atom, so they employ his other counterparts: Breach (Tim Zanetti) and Quantum-Storm (Ronnie Raymond) to assemble an army of Captain Atoms from the different dimensions to fight back. In the Arena storyline’s conclusion, Monarch reveals that Breach is his brainwashed accomplice and he has lured his 51 counterparts into his presence in order to murder them and absorb their power. With his team of Eve of Shadows (Earth-13), Vampire Batman (Earth-43), Ray “the Ray” Palmer (Earth-6), the monstrous Scarab (Earth-26), Hal Jordan Jr. (Earth-12), Starwoman (Earth-7), Johnny Quick (Earth-3), Wonder Woman (Earth-34) Red Son Superman (Earth-30) and himself – the sum power of 52 Captain Atoms – Monarch believes he is ready to confront the Monitors and does so, finally launching his war on Earth-51 against the exposed Monitors.
In a protracted fight against Superman-Prime, his suit is damaged, releasing a chain reaction that apparently destroys the entire universe of Earth-51 aside from its Monitor.

I am happy to say that Captain Atom is apparently set to return some time in 2009, back as a hero and not what he was turned into. Now, if only the can stop using as a die and bring back character and stop using him in a conspiracy story line. Then I think we’re in good shape, other wise it’s been there and done that

Major Force

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on December 28, 2008

He one this week’s poll and now here he is. Kyle Rayner’s greatest enemy, Major Force. Major Force is a product of the same U.S. Federal project which created Captain Atom during the Vietnam War. The government, in a projected headed by Wade Eiling and the scientist Megala, was experimenting with the effects of atomic energy on an alien metal they had taken from a crashed spaceship to determine its full protective abilities; such as protecting a human being from a nuclear blast. After the disappearance of Nathaniel Adam and the perceived failure of the Captain Atom Project, the government restarted the project with a new subject, Clifford Zmeck and increased the amount of metal used (Captain Atom #36 (Dec. 89). While in the USAF, Zmeck had been jailed in a high security prison for rape and sentenced to life in prison. He was offered a pardon in exchange for participation in the high-risk governmental experiment. The results were the same as with the Captain Atom Project and Zmeck disappeared into the Quantum Field, emerging one year after the return of Nathaniel Adam. This time, the government was ready and implanted microexplosives under the metal while it was still malleable, in order to control Zmeck in case he went rogue. Introduced as an ally, then successor to Captain Atom, Force’s brutality betrayed his government-concocted role of superhero and brought him in frequent conflict with Atom. Major Force is now arguably Captain Atom’s arch-enemy. Eventually, he became a hired gun for General Wade Eiling’s purposes.

In Green Lantern vol. 3, #54 (August 1994), Major Force killed Alexandra “Alex” DeWitt, girlfriend of the then, newest Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, and stuffed her remains in a refrigerator so that Kyle could find her. Rayner almost killed Major Force, but was stopped by forces of the Special Crimes Unit. Alex’s demise inspired writer Gail Simone to create the website Women in Refrigerators, which in turn coined the term of the same name.
In Guy Gardner: Warrior #43 (June, 1996), Force killed Arisia, a former Green Lantern and dear friend of Guy Gardner. Force was apparently confronted in Kyoto, Japan. Guy Gardner seemingly kills him in revenge. In reality, Force is made of energy and not matter. He cannot die and has effectively gained immortality.
In Superman/Batman #3 and #4 (December 2003 and January 2004), Force is part of a Government Task Force led by Captain Atom, in addition to Green Lantern John Stewart, Power Girl of the JSA, Starfire of the Teen Titans, Japanese superhero Katana and retired superhero Black Lightning. He is saddled with Captain Atom by President Lex Luthor in order to bring in Superman when a Kryptonite asteroid was headed for Earth. Superman and Batman escape them in Washington but met up with them again in Tokyo. Power Girl and Katana reveal they are double agents working with Superman and Batman the whole time. When Captain Atom and his squad pursue them to Japan, Power Girl strikes at the Major. When he returns fire, Katana chops his hands off, releasing the atomic energy he harbored. Batman convinces Captain Atom to absorb the energy leaking from Force, which threatened to decimate the city. Captain Atom absorbed all the energy and disappeared, moving several years into the future in a quantum leap.
As indicated in Superman/Batman #25, a copy of Major Force’s mind, his thoughts, his anger, gets mixed in with the essence of the new Kryptonite Man.
In an issue of Guy Gardner, Major Force seemingly slays Guy’s mother in the same manner as Kyle’s beloved girlfriend. After some confusion, it is learned Force had killed a neighbor who had been house-sitting. In Green Lantern vol. 3, #180 (October, 2004), Force apparently decapitates Maura Rayner, mother of Kyle Rayner, and stuffed her severed head in an oven. He later said it was just a mannequin. Kyle snaps, decapitated Force (whose head was still talking), sealed it in a bubble of Green Lantern energy and sent it into outer space (Kyle later finds out his mother is alive and well).

Major Force reappeared in the new Battle for Blüdhaven book, a title set a year after the events of Infinite Crisis, as the field leader of project S.H.A.D.E. In issue #5, he rips the right arm off a government hero named Major Victory, and beats him to death with it. However, Captain Atom was revived by the Atomic Knights in issue #6 (as Monarch), and Force’s rampage was quickly brought to an end when Atom drains him of his energy, leaving nothing but a husk. Force’s corpse was last seen falling into the chaos left by Atom’s energy expenditure.
His image appears in the series Ion as a representation of Kyle Rayner’s fear. He has also appeared on the cover of Justice League of America (vol. 2) #13 as a member of the latest Injustice League. His appearance as part of the Injustice League was meant as his return. Major Force was released when Monarch exploded after his armor was breached by Superboy-Prime during Countdown to Final Crisis. He is set to return following the return of Captain Atom some time in 2009. You can expect to see him referred to a few times in the upcoming issues of Teen Titans. As Bombshell continues her walk towards redemption in the book.

She’s got the power, Rainbow Girl

Posted in Profiles by mrread7 on December 27, 2008

I thought I would swing into something different this weekend and take a brief look at one of the Legion of Super Heroes current substitutes, Rainbow Girl. She’s playing a bit of a part in Legion of Three Worlds and a bit into Blackest Night. Due to her ability to tap into the emotional spectrum and use any of the main powers the current 7 corps are using. Dori Aandraison of the planet Xolnar. Possesses the ability to wield the power of the Emotional Spectrum, causing unpredictable mood swings from angry (red), to hopeful (blue), to confident (green), and others. She only appeared once, as a rejected Legion applicant in pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths continuity, and originally had the power to separate into four different-colored versions of herself. Red was heat, Blue was cold, Yellow was brightness, and Green was Kryptonite. She was rejected because her Green Kryptonite self posed a threat to Superboy and Supergirl. In part five of the Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes story-arc in Action Comics, Fire Lad, Stone Boy, Chlorophyll Kid and Rainbow Girl are called in to help battle the Justice League of Earth.[5] After the villainous group is defeated, the Subs decide to claim their satellite base as their own.

Dori is a very interesting character and due to her unique powers, I think she will play a role into rebuilding the Green Lantern Corps in the 31st Century once Legion of 3 Worlds wraps up in March.

What does it take to be a Blue Lantern

Posted in Blue Lantern Corps by mrread7 on December 25, 2008

Hello all, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did, I spent with both my family and my girlfriend’s. Wonderful times. I even got a few keep sakes both Green Lantern and Spider-man related that I just love. Including a pair of Green Lantern boxers and a certain Black Hand figure. Love it! I wanted let everyone in who hasn’t heard from a recent interview from Geoff Johns about The Blue Lantern Corps. As we start to learn their secrets starting next week with the second part of “Rage of the Red Lanterns”. From an interview made by the Wizard Magazine #207:

Quote:
-How about the Blue Lantern Saint Walker? He seems like a stark contrast to what we’ve seen of the Red Lanterns.
-Saint Walker is very unique in his position-in his role and what he does. The Blue Lanterns are extremely rare. They are extremely powerful and each one has an ultimate destiny. They’re also each chosen in a very different manner from any other Corps. They’re sought out and chosen by other Blue Lanterns and are brought to the world of the Blue Lanterns, and Ganthet and Sayd (the former Guardians and creators of the Blue Lantern Corps) talk to them. They spend time with Ganthet and Sayd in the thick jungles of the planet and get everything laid out. They learn every single thing about themselves and their role as a Blue Lantern. Then they decide if they want to become a Blue Lantern or not.

I love it, the Blue Lantern Corps basically has it’s own human resources department and employee referral. Something I thought the Green Lantern Corps needed for years. I do like the fact that they all have their own destinies to fulfil and that Ganthet and Sayd are directly involved with their training and well being. I really can’t wait to see how the Blue Lantern Corps shapes up in the coming months. I would also like to announce right here, that May will be Blue Lantern Month here on the Spotlight. So, start feeling the color of Hope because Saint Walker and his crew are getting their own month. I’ll be back later this weekend to talk about what is coming up on the Green Lantern Spotlight in 2009. I have a lot of announcements and updates on things. I’m sure you are going to love.

Merry Christmas

I just want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and hope your Christmas season is full of good times and cheers.

War of Light: Who’s side are you on?

Posted in War of Light by mrread7 on December 23, 2008

The War of Light is beginning, 7 corps are lighting up space. Who’s side are you on as the battle for control of the univese?

Green Lantern Corps

The first and once the brightest. Until recently, the GLC brought justice to the criminals of the cosmos. Now as the Guardians of the Universe are trying to avoid the Blackest Night no matter what. Trying to suppress emotions of the corps and keep order no matter what. Only the Earth base Green Lanterns keep what was once the core concept of the Green Lantern Corps.

Sinestro Corps

Out to control the universe through fear. Trying to make the GLC like them and if they can’t, they’ll replace them no matter what. Either fear them or they will destroy you.

Red Lantern Corps


Consumed by rage, the RLC is out to destroy everything they Sinestro Corps has done and make the GLC pay for all their wrong doings in the universe. Blood will flow and hate will rise. They will burn the cosmos.

Star Sapphire Corps

Love will save all. The violet light stands to “save” those who’s hearts are empty. That emotions should be embraced and not suppressed. If you feel anger, pain, fear or lost. The Star Sapphires will encase you in their “love” and if you are against them, then suffer.

Blue Lantern Corps

They embrace and spread hope. Helping those in need. They will pick you up and aid not only the Green Lantern Corps but those who need to be lifted. Hope will save the lost.

Orange Lantern Corps

It’s all theirs. Power, greed, order, life. They must keep it all for themselves. Do not take their power or their way of being. Or you will pay with your life. The criminals of the Vega System control all.

Indigo Corps

More a movement than a corps. They preach peace but will fight if they have to. They will help all, no matter if you have rage, fear or greed in your heart. If they save all, then the universe will be at peace. Just don’t try to stop them. They don’t like that.

Who will you join?
