The Threats Faced By The Green Lanterns – More DC Rebirth Details


The DC Rebirth Previews lay out the threats facing the Green Lanterns in their new title, Green Lanterns


(Low) Simon Baz barely trusts his ring, so what makes you think he trusts new Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz, who once found herself controlled by an evil ring that preyed on the weak and fearful?


(Growing) Although both Jessica and Simon also appeared in Justice League, they aren't seen as the fearless ring-stinger Hal Jordan was. "They're strapped with the most powerful weapon in the universe and charged with protecting one of the most treacherous sectors in all the cosmos—including Earth," admits Humphries. "But they don't have the rep Hal does…yet."


(Heating Up) Look for the Red Lantern to go on a rager during Baz and Cruz's initial patrols, as she plans to use Earth as her slaughterhouse. "Bleez realizes Earth is crucial to the survival of the Red Lanterns," teases Humphries. "Unfortunately, the humans who live on Earth are expendable."


(Sweating Bullets) Before they even meet the Guardians of the Universe, Jessica and Baz will come face-to-face with a rogue Guardian, who hides a secret that could destroy the universe. "The Guardians created the most powerful weapon in the DC Universe—the Green Lantern ring," says Humphries. "But a rogue Guardian also created something more powerful and more unpredictable."


(In Need of BackUp)  "Green Lantern is one of the most storied legacies in comics," gushes Humphries. "We're exploring that mythology with these two new Green Lanterns. We've had Emerald Dawn, we've had Blackest Night, we've had Brightest Day and now we have Red Dawn. '

While over on Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps…

Come July, Hal Jordan goes from head of a Corps to an army of one.

In the upcoming new series HAL JORDAN & THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS, Jordan's long, illustrious—and tumultuous tenure with the Green Lantern Corps takes several hairpin turns.

At lightspeed.

Toward a black hole.

In a blender!

For starters, the Green Lantern Corps has dis-appeared, and now Sinestro's own Corps enforces his uniquely brutal brand of law and order in the universe. As a result, Jordan has no ring to sling, or Sector 2814 (aka Earth) to protect.

(So, more of the usual for him)

"This isn't a war for control of the universe," says writer Robert Venditti who teams with artists Rafa Sandavol and Ethan Van Sciver on the twice-monthly title. "Sinestro has already won that contest. This is the story of what happens next"
