This doesn't bode well.

Legion of 3 Worlds, you can be sure, reflects the way this ends in many ways, you can assume. And the most notable feature regarding Lanterns is (a) Rond Vidar and Sodam Yat were the only ones left, and (b) the dead remains of Oa were littered with long-abandoned power rings, like, millions of them. Never reissued.

yeah but that was Oa, these rings are being sent back to mogo so they arent re-issued and cause more deaths, which in turn makes more black lanterns.

I love the fact that this proves what I've known all along - like every other set of authoritarians who have ever lived in real-life human history, the Alpha Lanterns have absolutely no respect for the law that they're so quick to beat other people over the heads with, unless they can use it to their own secular advantage.

Which is why all authoritarians are inherently evil. :)

They are the law, the law is embodied by them, and so they believe it is no longer something they serve, but their tool for others to serve. They're basically drunk on will, which is why they were another bad Guardian idea. Plus, they're dickheads and they suck.

Geoff? Is that you?

Yes, definately my new favorite Green Lantern. :D

I love the names Salaak spouts out here. He's "The Clarissi". Kyle & Guy are "Illustres".

Such lovely, descriptive words, much better than the very dull "Secretary" and "Honour Guard"

And he just explicitly compared the Alphas to the Manhunters, didn't he?

He's the Clarissi and he's here to explain it all!

I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

Go Salaak!

Well, if the Guardians don't survive this, at least we know who can replace them.

Let's pray the Guardians don't survive this, then.

Their arrogance, stupidity, and general gross incompetence should be punished. Snuff the ones on Oa and leave Ganthet and Sayd as the only remaining members of the species.

Am I the only one that thinks putting either Guy or Kyle in charge of everything is not necessarily a good idea? (I love 'em both, really.)

[identity profile] timemonkey.insanejournal.com 2009-09-12 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
But if you put them both in charage they cancel out each other's stupid points. Plus they're hot, and that's all that really matters.

I see your comic book point.

Kyle I can see. He's calm headed and did a good job when there was no corps, and had the status of torchbearer. He wouldn't let it go to his head, he'd listen to the good ideas of others, and will stand up for what's right.

Personally I loved this peek into Corps hierarchy. During the SC War it seemed like Hal had some sort of commander position, and he's lead the military side of things way back in the day, but exactly where that puts him isn't clear, and it makes sense he's not in line for the big chair. Honor guards have been around for awhile but it's never been exactly clear what their status was except for 'higher than normal'.

Clarissi as next in line,(since he's their right hand person anyway and really shows why here), then Illustres, probably together, makes a lot of sense to me.
