I've noticed how nice and peaceful it is in the early morning and how different it is after the boaters get out there.
Damn Sith ruining your quiet time...I mean boaters, damn boaters.

Yes, that seems to be the case, since he is the only one we have seen using magic (though never offensively, he only uses it to get prophesies).

This ability to use magic seems related to the original backstory of Ysmault (prison planet of the Empire of Tears, magic entities) as well as the gift of prophesy Qull (another of the Five Inversions) had.

I don't give Johns that much credit. It seems more likely he just forgot about it and never thought it through. Why should he be the only one who can use magic? Magic isn't a genetic trait or something, it's knowledge of rituals and junk. The only reason Captain Marvel gets away with it is because a magical force selects him to work through but there is no mention of a shady wizard picking this vomiting douchebag.

Well, but the Empire of Tears were magical demons, so in their case it was sort of genetic, hehe. But I do agree that Johns didn't think about it well. In fact, I am unsure that Johns earlier thought of Atrocitus as Dr. Atros the survivor: my opinion is that originally he envisioned him as one of the magic demons (maybe part of the Empire of Tears) who happened to be angry and created the Red Lantern (an early issue of Geoff Johns' run in which the prophecy of the Blackest Night is shown on a sort of flashback mentions the Empire of Tears and even shows the surreal-looking demons, plus Atrocitus' gift of prophesy is the same as Qull had, so it fits the magical theme) but that after time passed Geoff retconned away the Empire of Tears and gave a full backstory to Atrocitus where he is just a member of an alien race.

Also, do we know why Atrocitus was left on Ysmault? I mean, he was just a psichologist that survived the massacre of 666, why wasn't him executed/imprisoned on a Sciencell/forgotten? we don't even know why was he the only one of his species who got away, he wasn't even hiding in a secret bunker or anything; one would think that the Manhunters have some kind of scanner.

Damn right! It took me a couple of days to even find the interest to get through RL #1. If it weren't for my OCD and having to have every GL comic, I wouldn't even bother with #2.

Now Jedi and Sith? There's still some fun to squeeze out of talking about them. Even if it means coparing Atrocitus to Anakin as a poor man's Darth Vader. No matter WHAT you think of the prequels.

Hey guys, I think I got it. Atrocitus's past history was Flashpoint-Punched away, so it doesn't really matter. Eh? Ehh??





I'll go sit in the corner now.

I liked autrocitus how he was before this series, I hate to say it but Milligan doesnt seem to have a grasp on the character, what he's doing to autrocitus is the equivalent to trying to add logic to cartoons, you just dont do it!!
