Return of the Zombies

Posted in blackest night,green lantern,White Lantern Corps by Podcast on July 14, 2010


Those damn dirty zombies are back, on the one year anniversary of the beginning of Blackest Night, the Black Lanterns return. Of course I find it ironic that it’s the members of the Justice League that are shown in zombie form here and not the rest of the resurrected heroes and villains. Of course it’s still too early to tell and after what has happened in the first few issues of Brightest Day, we knew that we would be seeing the Black Lanterns again before too long. After, what is the true creator behind the Black Lanterns? Not Nekron but the very being of space itself since it was the vast darkness of the universe that is the true enemy of life because it hates life after all? It’s the body and we’re the infection and while we fight for evil or justice in the vast multi-verse, the universe hates that in every form, no matter what.
To me this is just another chapter in the White Lantern saga, since the “old guardian” as I like to call him has been seizing the various emotional entities from Parallax to Ion. I see this as the main catalyst to why he is gathering all these beings and also the true reason why the Manhunters annihilated Sector 666 in order to get the Blackest Night over with and make sure there was always a constant struggle between Light and Darkness. Who knows, I may have finally tapped into the minds of Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi and JT Krul (scary I know). Let’s wait and see what becomes of Brightest Day the next two months and I’ll revisit this thought. In the mean time, bring back those decaying zombies; they’re the new “it” since vampires.

Ring After Effects

Since Blackest Night ended and Brightest Day began, we’ve been shown that the exposure to the different power rings has been having side effects to various characters. So, to have a little fun today before the July 4th weekend, I thought I would take note of a few.

Red Lantern Power Ring
While we’ve seen Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner and Mera affected deeply by the red power ring due to their inner rage, it’s the aftermath of the rings that have affected regular users of the Power of Rage. Thanks to both Hal and Guy’s will power, they were able to bend the red light to make constructs. Something, none of the other Red Lanterns, including Atrocitus were able to do until now. Atrocitus now can create anything he wills his rage into. From weapons to various constructs, which are fueled by his hatred. Even Dex-starr and Bleeze are being shown to now be able to do more with their rings than just spewing acid blood on everything.
One final note, the Red Power Rings has shown that they attach to their users after they have suffered some great lost. With Laira, it was losing her title as a Green Lantern. For Hal Jordan it was after Sinestro killed Laira in front of him, Guy when Kyle was almost killed by the Black Lanterns. Dex-starr after his owner was killed by a break in and then Bleeze after her betroth was killed in front of her. Finally for Mera watching all those she loved being twisted into Black Lanterns. It makes sense since at that moment, their hatred is pure and at the beginnings of forming, hence they are the perfect target for the rings.

Orange Lantern Power Rings
Now with Avarice, we’ve seen how Ophidiate’s power has on all its users or those that taste its power. We’ve already seen Larfleeze’s problems but with Lex Luthor, he gained an insight on how all the various power rings work and how much he wants to have that power for himself. Being effected by the Orange Light causes a user to be like an addict going through withdrawal. Even Hal Jordan explained that he felt a bit of wanting the light again but being effected by Parallax drove it out of him all the way. Now with Sayd being the Orange Lantern Guardian, she has also started feeling the effects of the light, even though she is more of Larfleeze’s royal visor than controlling or bending the light.

Black and White Lantern Power Rings
As it’s been shown with the resurrected heroes and villains that the two ring exposures have had strange effects on them; Captain Boomerang is now able to form boomerang constructs out of dark matter in times of distress. Osiris is torn between following his dark ambitions with Deathstorke or casting it all off to be a White Lantern. Hal Jordan and Sinestro are still connected to the Entity and have a view on life and the various Emotional Spectrum beings. Professor Zoom was able to channel the Negative Speed force thanks to be connected to both lights. Aquaman and Firestorm’s powers are out of wack between the living and the dead. Hawkman and Hawkgirl not only are restored to their former selves and memories but can also recall their full history from beginning to end.

We haven’t really seen any negative effects of the Green, Yellow, Violet, Blue or Indigo rings. At least as of yet, time will tell if there are any full effects from being a former user. At least as dramatic as the other rings have done to their former users.

Give me that old time religion

Posted in blackest night,Brightest Day,Rants by Podcast on June 9, 2010

You know I was getting to these guys; sure it took me a while since I’ve doing that thing called moving and dropping of comics. Hence, it took me until now to finally talk about the other 4 emotional beings from the Emotional Spectrum in the Green Lantern Mythos. As we learned in Green Lantern #50 that the White Entity was the first being that spawned life in the regular DC Universe. In doing so, the first creature that willed itself to move became Ion. While thousands of years later, the first insect to feel fear became Parallax. Then even more time passed and the first beings to feel love, which of course were Adam and Eve gave birth to the Predator. A creature that like love when left unchecked could become powerful and dangerous, which leads me to talking about our first of the other entities, Ophidian.

Mine!

Yes, the serpent from the Garden of Eden that decided to take that apple that was on the sacred tree, which it didn’t need and became the embodiment of Avarice. This even explains while Larfleeze and other beings have always had this undying hunger they cannot control. This “mine” feeling that they constantly ache for because the serpent just needed to take that apple. I have to admit when I first saw this, it kind of surprised me, and I mean forget that life originated on Earth according to the DC Guide to a Universe by Geoff Johns. The whole Adam and Eve thing I could understand, I mean for those who have ever read or heard of the story or are a good church going person. They really did show both the good and bad about love. However, then we go into the fact that the whole domino effect happed after that. The serpent comes and then we have the emotional entity in Ophidian and then we move on to more of a mess that started.

Rage

The Butcher, which was born out of Cain murdering his brother Abel, who was the children of Adam and Even and the bull that is the Butcher, is over the calf they fought over in certain texts. Now, we are going into a bit too much Sunday School for my tastes, not that I’m having a huge problem with it and going to pick up the torches and pitchforks against DC Comics over it. I just think we got a little too Book of Genesis by this point. Even though they were already going catholic with Black Hand and how he became the first Black Lantern and the Death Entity for the DC Universe. However, when you look at it, what really are the Book of Oa, the Book of Parallax and the Book of Black? Bibles. At this point, I see where they were going with how the rest of the Emotional Spectrum went.

Hope

With Adara, she was born out of prayer and if you look at your bible, you will realize that while Adam and Even and Cain and Abel talked to God, they never really prayed until after they were all gone. So, then of course, man is walking around Earth while other beings are living through out the universe, so of course the Blue Bird of Happiness would be born out of the first prayer. While others will argue with me, when you do pray, there is hope in your voice. While it might not be asking for hope when a person prays for any reason. There is that sense of a better outcome then you might feel at that moment or that you want that sense of hope. Hence we get Adara out of it and that it’s a bird since in another religious sense, birds have always been an avatar for peace, prayer and hope. After all, the Holy Spirit is usually associated with a bird; hence this embodiment makes sense just like the others.

Cuddle

Now getting into the last piece of the puzzle with Proselyte, the emotional being of Compassion, which is a squid/octopus/cuddle fish creature. Now, I get how when you are compassionate you put yourself in some one else’s shoes and you wrap yourself in their lives. Hence, having a giant indigo colored squid makes sense in the long run. I mean it’s still kind of silly but we have the new spokesman for Red Bull in the form of the Butcher and psychology takes a whole new meaning with Adara, so at this point, a creature like Proselyte isn’t really that far fetched.

A whale that willed itself to move, an insect that felt fear, a creature that felt but had no true form. A bull born out of murder, a snake taking what it didn’t need, a bird that was spoke to and apparently a fisherman throwing a squid back because he felt sorry for him. Its comics, there is logic and then there isn’t logic too it. I can move on from it and when I eventually get Brightest Day in trade next year and the other Green Lantern books are collected in 2011. I’m sure I’ll still smile so, I’m good with it, after all: “Can’t we all just get along?”

Let’s keep Hawkman and Hawkgirl right now

Posted in blackest night,Brightest Day,Rants,Uncategorized by Podcast on May 18, 2010


It’s taken over ten years but Carter and Sheira Hall are finally back together again after the events of Blackest Night. Both Hawks back among the living and back in love with each other. I think back to the original Return of Hawkman over in JSA almost ten years ago. I liked the concept of reincarnated lovers where for the first time, one was rejecting the other. However, what really became a pain for a long time were Hawkman’s anger issues. It was fine at first and the fact that he was a warrior first before a super hero. It worked well but after a while it got very tiring. Also, how much more did Kendra Saunders has to force fed that she was before she finally accepted that she was Sheira Hall?
As much as people want to hit Geoff Johns on the head about continuity these days, they at least never changed things with how he wanted Hawkman to be. However, it seemed that editorial and other writers sans Justin Grey and Jimmy Palimati just didn’t like the merged history and constant resurrection with Hawkman and Hawkgirl. At least both Brad Meltzer and Geoff Johns decided to move the characters into the pages of the relaunched Justice League and Justice Society of America books for a little while. To give the characters room to deal with issues and grow as characters again. However, that didn’t last long. We were then back to Carter’s: “Bah, I’m angry” and Hawkgirl’s: “I’m not Sheira Hall” attitudes again.
Now, thanks to Brightest Day, we get the classic Hawks back and even better they are finally going to deal with Hawkworld and all the other crap that other writers have been trying to throw out the last few years.
So, welcome back Carter and Sheira, let’s hope they keep the road clear of “made up” history again when Brightest Day is over.
