4 pages from todays Green Lantern #46 "Feared" by Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke.

Carol and Hal:

That last line is Sinestro saying it's inspiring. They battle it out a bit before this happens:


They become Black Lanterns which pretty much destroys tha planet and releases the Predator. Indigo-1 transports Hal, Carol and Sinestro to Korugor where Sinestro finally battles it out with Mongul, whose seemingly winning when Sinestro overrides his rings and impales him with spikes before locking him in the (backup?) Sinestro Corps CPB.

Thank you, Carol, for having the sense of mind to point out that your uniform is awful.

Also, the original Hawks were in the Violet CPB? How did they get from Earth to Zamaron?

Don't know. But I do recall the the reason it's the Zamorans home planet is because they were there.

I assume this is the original bodies of the Hawks. Remember they reincarnate, so there could potentially be hundreds of them rising.

Hee. I like the lampshade on the ridiculousness of the Star Sapphire uniform. I also like what they're doing with Sinestro, it seems really interesting. Do you think they'll have him go good or be an antihero?

Sinestro will propably try to turn this situation for his own use and be back at threatening the universe at the end of Blackest Night. Has been a villain for too long to suddenly turn good or even anti-hero.

Doesn't Sinestro see himself as an anti-hero? Pushing the Green Lanterns to be harder, bringing his idea of "order" to his homeworld.

Sinestro's only points of malice are toward those who he thinks has cheated him out of what he deserves(Jordan, for instance), and those who have done that, and also whom he believes to be hypocrites pretending not to be what they accuse him of. He believes the Guardians have a lot of power that they hold, at best, inefficiently, and at worst, irresponsibly, and of course believes he would do better.

As time goes on Sinestro is proven right about the Guardians, though whether he'd be a good substitute is a whole different story. A lot of Johns and Tomasi's runs on these characters has been based around that proposition, that a lot of what the Guardians fight was brought about, over the long term, by the Guardians themselves. And they lie, a lot, to their followers.

So, no, Sinestro doesn't look at himself as a villain. He believes others have the wrong standard to measure "heroes."

Glad to see that

1. Even Carol thinks her uniform is ridiculous
2. Hal is just as confused by the existence of Arin as the readers

Reference? Not the original Hawman and Hawkwoman?
Aw crap.

Still, the shock value as to who is getting resurrected and how they affect the living is fun.

They might be the original Hawks. I think they are the past lives of the Golden Age Hawks though.

Bullet point thoughts:
Sinestro proves he's awesome for at least the 20th time this volume.
The way Arin and Abin are on each other is creepy.
What about Sayd Hal? Or that nice Scar chap?
I don't know who those people are. Were they Hawkman and Hawkgirl in the past?
I really want Sinestro and Hal to banter on their love lives now.
Good issue.

Original flavor, from the ancient Egyptian days. Carter and Shiera/Kendra are/were their reincarnations.

The Hawks are supposed to be soul mates destined to be reincarnated over and over throughout time and to find each other. It appears that these are the originals.

Also, commenting on the costume is a teensy bit hypocritical, when you introduce it in your own run, Geoff.

Oh, and maybe Khufu and Chay-ara, since they are constantly reincarnated but always find each other and fall in love, are like the avatars/energy source for the Sapphires, who use that love as a power source. So when they were resurrected, it broke their connection to the Zamaron CPB and destroyed the planet? I'm just speculating - I haven't read the issue yet.

They also don't look like the actual bodies of the Hawks. More like a crystallized representation of the ancient Egyptian originals?

They aren't the avatar of love; the Predator is. They're apparently just a power source.

See, my problem here is Sinestro... he shows as being full of fear in Black Lantern Emotion-o-vision, but he's not, he's the CAUSE of fear, which is something else altogether.

Red's being filled by anger I understand, Orange being consumed by greed, even Green shining with Will (Which isn't emotion at all, but that's a fight I've long since given up on) but Yellow's aren't consumed by fear, they're OBSESSED by it, which is a different emotion in and of itself.

Date: 2009-09-30 11:50 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jlbarnett.insanejournal.com
that is the flaw. Of course maybe the emotion is similar enough. Perhaps Sinestro is always afraid. Afraid his homeworld will descend into chaos, etc and it makes him cold and violent. Because he doesn't like being afraid. Course that comes dangerously close to anger.

But then hope and greed do have some similarities, too.

It seems hard to pin down, but I think it's the defining emotion of a person. Sinestro inspires fear, Hal, hope and so on.

It gets a bit funky when you go into guys that are a bit less well defined, like Guy being symbolized by Rage, but I think that just means he's a hot head who's easy to piss off.

Again, I'm just talking out of my ass here.

From: [identity profile] nerium_oleander.insanejournal.com
I've seen the preview image with rage!Guy but has there already been an 'aura shot' of him identified red? If so can someone point me at a scan, or post if necessary?

I kinda take the auras as the emotion that drives a person. And all of these emotions have the capacity to fuel one another save for death. Depending on circumstances, emotions are subject to change. They're also complex on occassion, like Kyle for instance.

So, personally I don't have a problem with Sinestro being 'fear' because his fear that the Guardians (and everyone else for that matter) are fallible/capable of being corrupted/whatever is driving his willpower to expose those flaws.

But then, I'm probably way off track. I don't even care as long as Guy kicks ass and I'm entertained.

From: [identity profile] 01d55.insanejournal.com
My sense is that using a power ring places a permanent overlay on your aura. You are always gonna ping the corresponding emotion as long as you have an active ring on your person.

We've seen Lanterns with multiple emotions, but I don't remember any who were missing their own.

Didn't Sinestro told Soranik in Korugar, during the Sinestro Corps War, that she should learn to accept her own fears, and using it to make others fear her? I think that's what Sinestro does. He feels fear, and uses it to make others feel fear. That's how I see it

Yeah, the usage of the yellow rings has always seemed a little...backwards to me as well.

But I blame the whole idea of the Color Spectrum of Lanterns for that, which tried to force a whole new system on how the rings are supposed to work.

Squee, Hal fighting side by side with Carol.

At least Carol didn't choose that costume, so she get to complain about it. I wish she'd said "Shut up" instead of "I know".

Carol thinks she's Wonder Woman now with the sword. Meanwhile, Hal is playing rock, paper, scissors. XD

Eh, the Zamarons and Star Sapphire have been playing space amazon for years. Comes natural to them. My pet theory is that the immortal Zamarons came to earth ages ago and inspired the original look, making the resemblance make sense--and giving Wonder Woman a reason to go SPACE AMAZON!

Ooohkay... So since the rings just animate the bodies, should I assume the Black Lanterns Khufu and Chay-ara are separate entities from the Black Lanterns Carter and Kendra?

From: [identity profile] jlroberson.insanejournal.com
Hold on, they actually reconstructed the ORIGINAL versions of these people? That's hardcore. But simple. And, if they use this later to rebirth a whole bunch of characters, they may be able to use that to resolve the whole Hawkmess once and for all--here he is, Khufu, brought to the modern age.

You know, I'm sick of everyone's complaints about the Star Sapphire outfit. They ALL SUCKED, always. The original one was in its day just as much an impractical fetish uniform--a stewardess by way of PLAYBOY--and its purpose was always to weaken Hal's will by distracting him with, well, what distracts Hal best. She just used to be Hal's villain, they weren't a corps.

No, my real problem with the uniform and the energy and the coloring?


You know what's a shade of violet? The border I see on the left of this page. THAT IS NOT VIOLET.

Date: 2009-10-05 03:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] mari_redstar.insanejournal.com
The original one was more comfortable and practical than Wonder Woman's costume. By a lot. If that's an impractical fetish uniform... well, okay, it is, but hell, I'll take it. At least it looked like it had been designed by someone who had, at some point in their life, seen a woman. This one looks like it was designed by someone who had, at some point in their life, briefly glimpsed a collectible statuette of a woman.

Also- I'm really getting curious- could someone tell me what it is about the original Star Sapphire costume that makes people compare it to a stewardess's? I think I'm too young for stewardesses- they were 'flight attendants' well before I was old enough to be paying attention on planes- my mental picture is vague and has something to do with mini-dresses and little hats, neither of which are present on Star Sapphire. So what's the stewardess connection? I don't think it's the leotard, or the pink-and-white color scheme, and it's probably not the enormous mask- is it the collar? Or the go-go boots? Or both together?

(And motto on the violet.)

Am I the only person who remains unamused by the in-story jab at the Sapphire outfits? Like that makes it any better, really; in fact it makes it that much more ridiculous. Carol's complaining, but she's not doing anything about it when it could be that simple? It's pretty clear in the promotional images that not everyone wears such revealing "uniforms"--there's no reason why Carol would be if she didn't like it. Or did I miss some actually suitable in-universe explanation?

On the flip-side, I do enjoy the banter between Carol and Hal.

From: [identity profile] ashtoreth.insanejournal.com
Oh sure. Using characters to point out the flaw in your story ('lampshading') does not actually make them not stupid. On the other hand, Carol just got the ring with her regular mind, so she might not know she can alter her outfit yet.
