Green Lantern #59 spoilers

The search for the emotional entities of the Green Lantern stories continues, and we get some more answers.

Spoilers behind the cut.



Let me say this, as this whole issue is a talky one with little action.

The issue starts of with an ambulance with paramedics caring for two shot hoods. One has two shots inside his belly, being treated by the type of paramedic we hope to get.
The other hood has a shot in the arm.... and he has insurance. Mr.-Care-for-the-Insured argues that they should be working on the guy with insurance, as it would be easier. Mr. Nice guy doesn't take to kindly to his partner, but the argument is cut short at the racing ambulance is struck by
a truck and flipped. Everyone inside is dead, except the guy who needs a Care-Bear hug. He's is trapped under the ambulance, as he was thrown out. And then the Indigo tribe come, and claim him as one of their own, and as host to their emotional entity.

Back with Hal...

The Flash has intercepted the various Lanterns who are looking for the emotional entities, and have found the entity for Hope. Flash confront Hal about working with Sinestro and Atrocitus, known villains, and how he is turning his back on his fellow earth defenders for help.

Hal related to Barry why he can't risk having the others exposed to the entities as he relates what happened to him while he was Parallax.

It's starting to become a Mexican stand-off.

the Good:
Answer: Larfleeze, as he continues to steal the show and our hearts.



the Bad:
the Indigo tribe appears, and with them they brought Black Hand, who has been assimila... I mean "converted". And we find out who they are and were.




The rings make them play nice. Without them, members of the Indigo tribe are not nice.
Not very nice at all.

the Ugly
the guy who is stealing the emotional entities arrives, with Parallax in tow, and under his thrall.
Instead of going for the Lanterns, or attempting to collect the two emotion entities assembled before him, he sends Parallax to retrieve someone else instead.

And we get this:

Th paramedic scene bothers me. I know that its written to entice and provoke especially when the entire point of issue to discuss moral dilemmas, but all emts are taught basic triage.

Some of us are picky about what we are passionate about and what we do for living when it crosses into our media. The insurance debate does not happen. Insurance rarely comes up in a pre-hospital setting and when it does it comes from the patient or family.

I'm apologize for the rant but I don't want anyone thinking that in the States that paramedics would treat like this. We triage based on acuity not insurance.
