Can a mod fix the typo in the title? Posted from my phone.

And before everyone freaks out remember that solicits aren't always true.

I'm a little curious as to why "the universe" would want them to "pay" for murdering Kyle. I thought "the universe" was kind of skeptical of ring-wielders in general, and wasn't necessarily generally aware of Kyle as White Lantern in particular.

Not that I buy for a second that they have actually murdered Kyle, of course.

And doesn't most of the universe that does know about Kyle as a White Lantern already think he's dead from a couple of Big Events ago? When he went into the Source Wall?

This is just ridiculous.

If it ain't about "the universe" then it ain't a worthy story idea.

Is anyone really surprised by this? I also wouldn't be surprised if Guy bits the dust too.

I'd be mightily surprised if either of them actually dies. I cannot express how surprised I would be if Kyle Rayner were to actually be killed in Omega Men, of all places, instead of in a GL book (most likely as part of a major event).

(Not that I'd want him, or any of the human GLs with actual history to them, to be killed. I'm just saying, if they were to do it, no WAY would it be anywhere but a GL book.)

Probably they have a run-in with Kyle and then he vanishes into the alternate universe in the same way all the other GLs vanish... and there's witnesses or something to where it looks to the onlookers like it was the Omega Men's doing.

That's my bet.

That actually makes a lot of sense. Still wouldn't explain why "the universe" would be up in arms about it, of course, since "the universe" doesn't seem to have a generally high opinion of ring bearers, but you can't have everything, right?

I'm surprised you didn't find a way to blame Johns.

I'm sure he signed off on this, if he didn't come up with it himself.

I'm sure that part of it is just hyperbole.

I hope so. It would be kind of laughable if killing a Lantern somehow became a cause for general uproar, given how much time has gone into establishing that the universe at large doesn't like or trust them.

Not that I'll even know except secondhand, as I'm not at all interested in reading an Omega Men book.

Does the "universe" even know who Kyle is or what a White Lantern is?

I'm sure Kyle will be fine, and the Omega Men will know it. They may even be hiding him or know where he really is...while the entire UNIVERSE is mourning him.

This makes me sad, but honestly every 'big' hero bites it at some point and returns. Maybe this is how he is reborn with a green ring again...

Not only do they return, but Kyle's done it a few times himself. He'll be fine.

I like "the universe." I think it's a great theme Green Lantern has going on.

It's DC trying to create their own "Guardians of the Galaxy" on Kyle's back.

What he should be asking them about is where Lianna is. She's needed.

That's the vibe I am getting ,Guardians of the Galaxy ripoff. It's not like I am going to buy though. So I don't really care.

Maybe the secret is they didn't kill him, but rather Kyle got a power ring that is even MORE powerful than the White Lantern? Like he finds ten white rings and combines them Voltron style into one super duper, DUPER powerful ring? And now, as the Mega Lantern, Kyle goes into hiding so his uber power levels can't be exploited by nefarious parties?
