On DCU Blog The Source today, the Greg Horn variant cover to Green Lantern Corps #46 was revealed by Editor Adam Schlagman. The cover features a major new Black Lantern, the villain that started the cycle of mega-Crises in the DC Multiverse, and arguably the ultimate evil of the DCU.
As Schlagman said, “Peter J. Tomasi & Patrick Gleason” found a way to “make things worse for our Emerald Warriors” by having the Anti-Monitor, the villain at the center of Crisis on Infinite Earths return with a black ring. Find out what new tricks this villain has up his sleeve with his new power ring in GLC #46
This is a great twist coming up, while many speculated (myself included) that the Anti-monitor would be freed from the Black Lantern Central Power Battery and go after Nekron or be freed again after the Blackest Night was over. Seeing him as a Black Lantern is a major twist but at the same time. You have to wonder if the the former Guardian of the Sinestro Corps mind will break through Nekron’s influence and reject the Black Lantern Corps. I’m pretty excited and damn… do I want this cover framed.
