I have a feeling that Kraken, Boodika, Varix, and the others are in a cell on apokolips and the Alphas are pawns of Darkseid. Any thoughts?

Final Crisis reference?

In any case, I don't think they'll all be evil/stay corrupted, but some will shine through, while others will have to be taken out.

"Lobotomized robots" - the Guardians procedure stripped them of any humanity and turned them into glorified Manhunters.

In a cell? Pawns of Darkseid? I don't think so.

I hope they do away with the Alpha-Lanterns and turn them back into humanoids.

I think we've seen this already to a degree. They're already starting to have issues.

I believe they'll either crash & burn on their own, or they're going to be taken down by other GL's

Tony Bedard's first arc on GLC is called the Revolt of the Alpha-Lanterns, so I would say that is a fair possibility.

a notion manipulated by the guardian's fear, and will some how be reversed by those all powerful retconning beings known as the guardians, or geoff johns, whoever is alive after blackest night

Kraken was controlled by Granny Goodness during that craptastic Final Crisis.

IMHO the Alphas have long since outlived their usefulness as a plot device. Time to send them to the recycling plant so they can be remade in to new HD TVs and PS3s.

What a waste of a good character IMO. Kraken could have been used much better. And lol at the TV and PS3īs comment..

Kraken, Boodika and the others were wastes of good characters. They all had potential before this and now they're just mindless shells.

Glad you liked it. They have to make those new slim X-Box 360s out of something as well. Sadly their is nothing organic left of the Alpha Lanterns.

This is probably going to be Geoff Johns [or whoever thought it was a good idea] biggest failures.

from the GLC solicitations, it looks like we won't have to wait long for that "malfunction" to happen. Looks like they turn on the GLC right after Blackest Night.

I agree. I think we are headed for another Sector 666 massacre. In fact, could they be who has taken control of Parallax?

I wouldn't even say that they are 'glorified'. They're Manhunters 3.0

2.0 being Henshaw's.

Would be cool. But I doubt it.

Final Crisis and I figured it was a way for the characters to come back and have the Alphas be bad guys.
