All I see is Atrocitus killing a bunch of space pirates/mercs. Nothing really "anti-heroic".

Dex Star refers to them as sadist and talks about their victims.

That makes them "bad". Which makes Dex Star and Atrocitus "good"ish.

So Dex-Star wasn't perhaps referring to himself?

I suppose it's within the realm of possibilities but look....

he's floating through space... then he encounters his adversaries who say they want to kill him and take his fur.

He think/says "sadists" then "I hear the screams of your victims"

Why would he be talking/thinking about himself?

In the world of superhero comics, if you kill a bad guy on a consistent basis, you're an anti hero.

My first thought
Two Words

Dex-Star Plush!

Then I read Atro's monologue, now that seems pretty interesting, he rage is no longer pure. With Krona dead what is his goal? Have his people truly been avenged?

This preview looks awesome and really intriguing. I love Atrocitus and Dex-Starr I can't wait for this Wednesday.

Unhappy Not what I expected....

Really? That's it?

First off, how in the seven hells does Atrocitus know anything about actors and fading careers?!? Did he spend that much time on Earth? Did he catch a few Charlie Sheen movies to see how actors go downhill?

And don't give me some BS, "he could've had actors and entertainment on his world..." cause that's not even a believable scenario. We've all seen Star Wars, how many aliens do you remember having cable tv or shows on stage that weren't musical?

Second, I hate the cat. It's only good for setting up Atty for dumb one liners. He doesn't need a pet, let alone a human pet, to make him seem more human.

I had high hopes for this series, but if the answer to making a book successful is to take one of the most hardcore alien killing machines from sector 666 and tame him and give him a little pet sidekick, count me out by #3. Lobo turned into a joke at one point and it's hard for anybody to write him worth a shit anymore, seems Atty is going down the same path.

I'd have much rather seen an Agent Orange series. Doesn't matter if it's serious badass Larfleeze or the more comical stingy bastard, I liked them both.

I already said I'm giving it 3 issues, but based on the few pages we've seen I already know it's just gonna be a poorly executed attempt at making another Corps seem like good guys. Red and Violet were supposed to be the hardest colors of the spectrum to control, the craziest of the crazy.... and now look what we have.

The Sin Corps protected Korugar for a short time while it was their temporary base, Larfleeze doesn't kill people on Earth [unlike dozens of aliens who're now constructs] he just robs them blind, and now the Reds are REALLY fighting for some form of justice.

Aside from the Blues, I was under the impression the whole multi-spectrum thing was to give Hal and Co. more rogues. Forgive me if I think a Red Lantern who rips a GL completely in half with his bare hands in his first appearance should be considered a badguy.

all i can say is just read the full book and maybe you might change your mind.


and i agree i think there can be a better option than the reds hell i have been pushing for a indigo tribe secret orgins type thing.

but it is what it is and at first i said i wasnt going to buy it but after seeing what i saw it peeked my interest a bit

At first this was on my pull list but I'm gonna put it on my 1-3 issue trial list of about 8 or 9 other DCnU books. It's one thing to break up Lois and Clark, and another putting Grayson back in the circus, but turning a psychopathic red monster who can rip a GL [using a personal force field in space no less] in half into an apparent movie buff and cat lover.... that's just too damned much.

Sinestro was fear... and Atrocitus was rage. WTF happened to that?
