Not shocked at all. This makes Flashpoint: Abin Sur a bit more interesting.

Johns has got some 'splainin' to do for this to make any sense.

I am sorry but Geoff Johns has gone downfall. Sinestro kills more people than Jordan and yet he can have a ring? What was he possessed by Parallax the whole time? Geoff Johns supposed Mancrush on Sinestro needs to stop. I liked him better as a villain. Hopefully this will only go on for less of a year, much like Lex Luthor leading Action Comics!

Well IGN made a nice Top 10 of Retcons DC will have to do. And on their #2 spot is Blackest Night.
Why? Take Hawkman for instance, DCnU gives him a new origin/background and starts from fresh. How can you keep Blackest Night into continuinity while Black Lantern Hawkman shouldn't even be dead (or died) in DCnU. That's just one of the many things, new reboot of Superman so Death of Superman would never took place, yet there was a Black Lantern Superman.

So it would make sense that Flashpoint has also his effect ripples into Green Lantern series. It would make sense, but that doesn't mean i have to like it.

Think the only thing we can do is sit and watch what will happen in the end of GL War + Aftermath + DCnU
Who knows maybe it's Sinestro Green Lantern and the Hal Jordan Corps instead of the Sinestro Corps.
In Flashpoint Hal never gets a Ring, so maybe No Hal at all?

It used to be, he could come up with good ideas.

I'll have my reaction on my blog later tonight on this. I'll make it as bias as possible.

The point of DCnU is to make DC Universe more open for new readers. Adding a new Earth and different realities isn't the way to do that i think . . .

They havent yet. You said that if the DCnU would negate Death of Superman and thus negate Superman being a Black Lantern but it wont because the Black Lantern in Blackest Night is SUperman of Earth 2.

Sinestro may get a ring back but I doubt Jordan will be out of the picture.
Cover is just a red-herring I bet.

I'm pointing towards this fragment of the story, where the Black Rings took over all the once dead but now revived heroes

dc has already stated that stories such as death of superman and blackest night will all be apart of the new dc. so while they may make a good point, we'll have to wait and see. but green lantern 1 will pick up from issue 67. read the issue you'll see why

This is a direct effect from the end of the War not Flashpoint

Well, it looks like everyone who said Sinestro wouldn't be a GL again (including me) was wrong. Not the right sector? Being a mass murderer? Making his own "SINESTRO" Corps? Evidently, none of these are a bar to being GL of 2814 again.

If Flashpoint is the reason for the DCnU, then it has to have it's ripple effect in the Green Lantern stories, otherwise you have two different DC Universes. One where the old just goes on and one where Flashpoint happened.

I've read GL 67, the ending explains the cover indeed. But the reaction of the Guardians is just absurd, it does not compute but maybe that's the point. Without emotion you make wrong decisions.

Batman and Green Lantern are two heroes thats going to be "largely unaffected" by the reboot/relaunch caused by flashpoint. it was stated in an interview by Didio or Johns cant remember who.

Lets hope so, but then the question still remains How are they going to fit it all into eachother.

They've tried that more than once before, resulting in a more complex DCU. Now they want to go wide-open for a new audience. That means they just going to ignore the plotholes because of the reboot?

Not all that shocking if you ask me. I'm excited to see where they take this story wise. For all we know, it might not be present day Sinestro either. It may be a stretch, or just the artist rendition, but look at his hair. It's a little more full and not Hilter-ish.

Could this be a younger Sinestro before he goes yellow? With Flash point messing with things and some stories in the DCnU taking place in the past, we could be seeing this as a result of one or both of these facts. Either way, it won't last. He will go yellow again. Otherwise, what will they call the Sinestro Corps? The Arkillo Corps? lol

It will be fun to watch this unfold and see the changes back and forth. So I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy.
