Yeah the Solicit's mention that. Also Kyle is going to be the GL of 2814 apparently if WotGLsAM #2 holds true.

Wait, how can Sinestro be GL of sector 2814? He is from sector 1417?

After non-stop epic storylines, the law of diminishing marginal returns has set in and sensationalistic gimmickery, let's make Sinestro a cool anti-hero Green Lantern, is really the only place to go at this point.

Nope or else he would have been lantern of that sector the first time

I'm sure in volume 5 #1 the Guardians will come up with some half assed reason why Sinestro will be assigned that sector instead of korugar. They might say Earth needs him, or that his history with Korugar means they need him to keep distance from it so the planet doesn't revolt. It makes sense that they would "transfer him out" to avoid problems, but why assign him such a high profile sector like #2814? I guess they could say that's where all the bad shit always happens and he's needed there...

...even though there are already 3 other native human GLs at their disposal.

But on the 3 solicits that we've seen so far, Sinestro's seen fighting his own corps on Korugar so I doubt that he'll be assigned to 2814... Who knows?! Johns says one thing one day and another the next and then goes back on it on the third day. Crazy basterd!

Johns talks a lot, but he never gets down to doing what he says.

Which planet has suffered more damage as a result of his actions...

Earth or Korugar?

Never mind what the GLC thinks of him wearing a Green ring... how are Superman, Batman et al going to take it?

Or is that immaterial because of the reboot?

Fuck DC.

Bolovax Vik. (OK, technically, he didn't destroy that planet, but rather the one the survivors were restored on.)

But, assuming this wasn't a rhetorical question, I'd say Korugar. True, we've seen him do more bad stuff on Earth, but the reactions of the Korugarians to him tell me that what he did to their planet caused a much more extreme hatred than anything he did to Earth, so I'm guessing his "rule" of their planet was, on the whole, worse than the various schemes he attempted to execute against Earth. On Earth I expect he is viewed as just another Supervillain, whereas on Korugar, he is pretty much universally reviled as the equivalent of our Hitler (only worse, because he was actually successful in ruling the world).

That awkward moment when Sinestro is back in the Corps...

Hell, by the time volume 5 rolls around, Korugar will probably be Goeffconned so that it was always part of sector 2814, and Sinestro and Abin were Sector partners. Of course, the GLC ALWAYS had sector partners and 7,200 members.

I really shouldn't give them any more ideas...

OK... I hate to get stuck on the Hitler thing....

but do we all understand that what made Hitler a "bad guy" wasn't that he was a dictator but that he rounded up "undesirables", placed them into concentration camps, had them experimented on, tortured and then killed? Like in the MILLIONS???

Sinestro wasn't Space Hitler when he was running his tight ship on Korugar. He was more like Space Mussolini.

Most recently... in The Sinestro Corps War... he brought the MOFO Anti-Monitor to Earth!!! There's no motherhumping way that Earth's heroes would stand for that shit and if I was President of the United States and I saw Sinestro floatin around rocking a ring I'd start launching nukes at him every hour on the hour.

No... Sinestro as the Green Lantern of 2814 makes way less sense than making him the Green Lantern of 1417 again.

No, he became Space Hitler when he had the Mad God Sector wipe out other sectors and trillions of lives.

Wich makes the new situation look even weirder. Itīs like the German Army let Hitler join again as a soldier.

Dont exactly know where anyone has seen him being listed as the new Green Lantern of 2814. Every solicit I've read has him going to Korugar for his first arc. Just because its the main Green Lantern book doesnt mean it has to take place in sector 2814. We should know that by now.

Don't forget Natu and Yolande are already assigned to 1417. Sinestro is filling in for Hal.

I'm really starting to not be excited about the new. The whole first issue will have to be explaining Sinestro's way back into the corps and how he is the lantern of 2814 and so on... and another thing, JL #1 has Hal on it with a ring???? if he isn't a lantern any more then why is he there??? should it be Sinestro?

The first story arc of the J.L.A will be taking place 5 years before what will be the current DC continuity.

Pretty much setting up the new DCnU timeline with how things started 5 years ago with the dawn of modern day super heroes.

I'm not saying it's not a bad idea, I'm saying it's not the worst idea ever, especially not in comics.
