All About EscoBlades
2Mar 10Blackest Night is almost over. With Brightest Day, hopefully the Green Lantern Corps will be able to take things a little easier. Although after the events of Blackest Night #7 and the rise a new White Lantern, who's to say whether the hard times are over? With this certain individual possessing the power of a White Lantern, things can go either way.
This could be a new beginning or just a continuation of the crazy dark times we've been seeing. It appears vacation leave may not be granted just yet for the Green Lantern Corps. They will be getting a new member. Who will be the latest to wield a Green Lantern power ring?
That's right, one of the busiest Guardians we know appears to be taking a more active role in the Corps. In Green Lantern Corps #48, the Green Lantern Corps Honor Guard will "expand" to include Ganthet along with John Stewart. I have to admit the idea of a Guardian being a Lantern is pretty cool, but what's the real story? Is this a step down for him? What will this mean for the Corps? Who will be "leading" things?
While Ganthet is an old and experienced dude, he doesn't quite have the field experience that other members of the Corps might have. Is he going to assume leadership or will he obediently take orders from Kyle Rayner (or even Guy, if he gets his rage in check)? It sounds like a cool idea and seeing Ganthet with a ring gets you wondering if he'll unlock even more secrets of the ring for the Corps.
Should the Guardians take on an active role like this? More so, can the Guardians be trusted? In Blackest Night #7, a certain individual really called them on the fact that they've been keeping secrets supposedly for the benefit of the Universe. Clearly they've made mistakes but still feel they are justified in all that they do. While Ganthet has been more level-headed than other Guardians, I just can't help but smell trouble brewing over the horizon.
13Jan 10DC's The Source has been teasing some big news all weekend. Looks like they weren't kidding. They finally shed some light into the matter. In a move you might have seen coming, DC is planning on brightening things up with their next major event. Following Blackest Night, we'll be seeing Brightest Day, a bi-weekly, 26-issue series that will start with Brightest Day #0.
What do you think? We saw the 'light' angle coming up. Will this turn out to be a good thing (for the DC Universe characters) or another gloomy storyline? I'm sure the Source will be providing more information soon.
As you can see, that's a Frank Quitely cover. More importantly, why is Damian about to chop off Dick's head? Sure he could be a little bratty at times but this looks like something else. What are your thoughts on this image? Did Dick tell Damian to eat his vegetables? Is this the end of Dick being Batman? Probably not, but it's still a cool image.
