Default Who should be a White Lantern?

My theory is that the white lantern would be someone wielding all seven colours of the emotional spectrum. But the question is who would that be? My guess is Hal or Kyle, but personally I hope it will be Hal. He has had significant experience with all the seven emotions:

Violet - love - His time with Carol
Indigo - compassion - the many times he has saved others over himself
Blue - Hope - Hal using hope to drive himself forward has occured many times.
Green - Willpower - Well, gl-obviosuly
Yellow - Fear - He was kinda joined with Parallax for a bit...
Orange - Greed - Collecting all the lantern rings on his way to destroyin gthe Gl corps
Red - Rage - the whole coast city being blown up thing kinda got him a bit cheesed off.

So yeah that's why i think Hal could end up being the White Lantern that will lead to the Black Lanterns defeat. Course then after that I imagine all the other spectrum corps rings will power down and he will go back to being the plain old best gl in the universe

Thats my 2 cents anyway.



So who do you guys think would make a White Lantern, or would it just be someone completely new?

Don't we have enough spectrum corps already? It's overkill to add anymore.... And white isn't a color.

Agreed. But if there was one...I think it should be John...because his character needs it.

Don't even like the idea of a White Lantern. The Emo Spec has been stretched to its limit with the Black Lanterns. Come on, someone wielding all colors of the Emo Spec... talk about overkill.

This is the role Green will play at the end of the Blackest Night. It is the center, the balance, all things brought together, and dominated by Will. There is no need for a White light when the Green works just as well.

No he doesn't. He just needs some attention period. He's an awesome Green Lantern, without a doubt one of the very best.

It's on the razor's edge of it now. The stories have been great to this point, but they can only push this war of light thing so far before we all wake up in the trite land of power rangers...

Forget White Lanterns, only the Rainbow Raider can hope to defeat the Black Lanterns, everyone knows that.

Heh, I think a white lantern should be someone who manages to get all 8 rings, but the power turns out to be too much for one mortal being to handle, and is destroyed by it.

Tommy Oliver. Definately.

Jokes aside, the biggest problem is trying to imagine someone "mastering" all those different rings. While we haven't seen all of them, the requirements for mastering rage (killing out of hatred and being overcome with a mind-numbing hatred while spewing out blood) seems a little at odds with, say, compassion (which I can only assume involved a bit of empathy). I mean, maybe green and yellow might be used at the same time, but some combos don't really make sence. You don't just stop feeling a murderous rage when you need to control the indigo power at just the right time. And, even if you could walk away from rage thereby "mastering" the process of expelling all your blood and replacing it with the red power and become Gahndi ... how do you go right back to that? Because you're going to if you want to use that ring again.

Unless, of course, the Zamarons just start PMS-ing and have their emotions just fly all over the place. ZING!

I mean, think about it. What would "mastering emotions" look like? Being perfectly calm and controlled? Like ... the Guardians try to be? I mean, if anyone *could* use all seven rings (without being controlled by a mind-consuming rage or hormones) then that person would be one pretty unstable fellow. I'm not saying that the spectrum won't come together to fight the blacks, but ... all seven in one guy? Not seeing it.

Actually, I think if we see white Lanterns they will be the opposite of Black Lanterns. While BLs will be reanimating the dead, the WLs would actually restore them to life.

That said, terrible idea.

If we're just tossing ideas around....

White could be a good source of the emotional spectrum. Like, someone sees it's origins and it'a a white light splitting apart.

Or just as an effect when all seven corps blast at something at the same time.
