Oh, I don't know. I think Ratchet is kinda cute and reasonable. A whole species of this shape, though? Gave it a 3 for potential.

^This

Sadly the origin I want most (ZZ) is the one they didn't do.

Atty monologues like a sulky Hamlet.

I thought it was a good issue. It didn't "wow" me but it seems to be getting better.


*Spoiler*



Regarding The tomb with krona, is it really possible that he could come back to life? Or did bleez take him?

Sure, but I seriously doubt that's the case. Doesn't seem to be the story Milligan is looking to tell.

Later today, Subj: Cliffhanger (see DC Comics All-Access, final page of book). Yup. This is one.

Guardians and Maltusians can do this little trick of reanimating themselves, though apparently dead. They've done it before. Remember too your ancient Maltusian legends. "In the time of the Predator the blood of Daalon gave rise to demons, crying out for vengeance..."

http://glcorps.dcuguide.com/profile.php?name=triarch

It was the symbiants indwelling the humanoids that gave the immortals their wisdom and abilities to gather the forces of the spectrum. If Krona's not technically "alive" now, perhaps his body can be re-animated. GL Vol 4 #67 sure looked like the symbiant fled the humanoid form of its own volition (meaning HJ didn't kill anybody and, as usual, the Guardians blew it). Now, where has the symbiant been hiding (or where is the symbiant hiding) so that it/he can be reunited with the body??? And Krona as a Red Lantern (like Ganthet as a Green Lantern) is a really scary thought. Hope he stays out of the blood red sea.

Ah, Butcher, where are you when we need you? Come to think of it, we're missing all of the Entities, unless Larfleeze has them and the rings both.

Somebody give this one a 4 for me, please. I already voted and I want to upgrade my ballot in the poll!

So after reading this comic, I asked myself 'Why am I still reading this?!?' And I don't know...I don't know; I'm giving it till the end of the arc atleast though before I pull it off the pull list.

Could be. Unfortunately, that would ruin the idea of Hal being so strong he could will to kill a GotU.

Not bad...but...who took Krona...? I'm really sincerely concerned about that. He can't be coming back to life...if he is that's just beating a dead horse. Unless they really really want Atrocitus to experience killing Krona and getting his true revenge and reconciliation.

Honestly. That may very well be what's happening...but I wouldn't like that.

Hahaha, that'd be funny just throwing Glomulus or Larfleeze in there to take it. :P

I gotta admit, as much as I like the storytelling pace of Red Lanterns, I feel it's more fitting for a book than a comic where people expect a lot more action. I am sure it will come, and the political game of Bleez is just the start, but how soon will it arrive is another topic. Sooner the better, I say.

Given New Guardians' storyline Bleez probably joined Kyle's crew after the event on Ysmault. Is it possible that Atrocitus took away her intelligence after he suppressed her potential upheaval?

Atrocitus is right about his monologue, he sorely needs another person he could trust, someone who believes in justice of rage as he does. Hey look, plenty of candidates on Earth for some reason

Also, if you do it once, you'd do it again, and many more times to come. Atrocitus, when would you turn your entire crew of Red Lanterns sentient? To make an interesting cast, it is indeed required to allow them to at least talk intelligently, to show personality other than raging slaughter. It may damage the reputation of Rage as one of the emotional spectrum's extreme but if Star Sapphire can think outside of their emotion from time to time, Red Lantern should too.

I am slightly worrying about Red Lanterns' appearances in GL animated series, because there tends to be a define line of morality in most cartoons. Would producers allow Red Lanterns, who commit violence for the greater good (and vengeance), to exemplar their vigilante philosophy? Batman would have a better chance of doing that, for sure, but Red Lanterns aren't Batman.

I doubt the Orange Lanterns did stole Krona though. They'll probably just make it Bleez.
