The Black Lanterns return in October


“What is October’s RETURN OF THE BLACK LANTERNS?” asks DC’s The Source blog, and frankly, your guess is as good as ours. All we’ve got to go on is the accompanying David Finch image, featuring undead Black Lantern versions of Aquaman, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, and Deadman — six of the twelve characters who were granted full-fledged resurrections by the White Light at the end of Blackest Night and who are currently the protagonists of Brightest Day. Halloween’s as good an excuse as any to let their black light shine again…

Oh, fuck this shit already. I was hoping the colored corps would end after Blackest Night, but geez this is too much.

Is the answer “I don’t care”?

That’s Deadman? I thought it was Hawk.

I mean, it could be either, but I guess I should go confirm Hawk’s costume.

Note a serious lack of Captain Boomerang, Anti-Monitor, Maxwell Lord (whoever he is), and whichever the Deadman/Hawk character isn’t, as well as whomever else might have been resurrected.

Really? I was sick of all the undead/zombies before Blackest Night even hit the stands. Can we, instead, get a follow up on the deputy Lanterns from Blackest Night? I’d be more interested in a Sinestro Corps Scarecrow than more Black Lanterns.

And the other characters that were brought back were Reverse Flash and Black Adam Jr. (or whatever he’s called).

Shorter DC: “We got nothin’.”

You can’t return if you haven’t even been gone for six months!

this cover kinda reminds me of thanos imperative #2 cover which has cancerverse versions of avengers

They’ve been teasing this in Brightest Day since the first issue.

I’m not interested, but this is no big surprise.
