The Sinestro Corps War is OVER!


We Won Bitches!!

Wiki wrote:
With the Green Lantern Corps restarted with the return of Hal Jordan, Sinestro has founded the Sinestro Corps and has been been actively recruiting members, offering yellow power rings and a role in the Corps to those who can "instill great fear". Members of the Corps are immediately taken to Qward to "...be subjected to psychological and physical reconditioning". The Sinestro Corps works in sectors, much like the GLC. Qward now has a huge yellow "Central Battery" on it, like the one used on Oa.
Geoff Johns, in an interview, revealed that the Sinestro Corps is a mirror organisation to the GLC and it will have "its own Oa-type planet, its own Guardians, [and] its own oath."
Arkillo, a large and muscular vicious alien is enslaving all the Qwardian Weaponeers and forcing them to continuously build new yellow rings, programmed to breach the barrier between anti-matter and matter universe and find and recruit new ring-wielders. Arkillo also serves as the Sinestro Corps' drill sergeant, similar to Kilowog's role in the GLC.
Known members, other than the Corps' namesake and Arkillo, include Karu-Sil, raised by animals; Despotellis, a sentient virus capable of attacking Lanterns from the inside; Bedovian, the sniper of the Corps, capable of taking out a target from three sectors away while living off of the fungus growing on his "hermit crab" like shell. Previews indicate that Hank Henshaw, the Cyborg Superman, will join the Sinestro Corps. Ethan van Sciver has also stated that there will be a 'Frankenstein'-inspired member who is two aliens cut in half and sewn together, each one bearing a power ring, so that they are two bodies acting as one.
Recently, the Sinestro Corps attempted to recruit Batman, known even to some alien races for his great formidability and ability of instilling great fear in others. However, Batman's willpower combined with his previous brief exposure to a power ring allowed him to reject the yellow ring before it took him to be properly trained and molded into one of Sinestro's warriors. The yellow ring then sought a replacement and selected Amon Sur, the disgruntled son of Abin Sur, who was on Earth and attempting to steal Hal Jordan's ring.

    Ive been waiting for this all summer. I wonder if the Star Sapphires fit into the Sinestro Corps specials or if theyre a later storyline.

    Cyborg Superman with a yellow ring? Isnt that going to make him a god? As far as I know, isnt he in Supes weight class, which is stronger then any GL without a ring? Dont see how theyre gonna stop him, maybe a bunch of GLs take him down together.

    I hope Salakk fucks some yellow shit up in GLC. He's such a damn asshole all the time, but he's the kind of character that needs to have a few "Oh Shit" moments infront of the rookies.

    It's going to be hundreds of people with incredible powers fighting hundreds of their evil counterparts in a battle to determine the fate of the universe.

    This is the sort of shit that makes a comics event awesome.

    Talking to Van Sciver at a con this weekend,
    he said that fans may be very unhappy about what happens to Kyle/Ion.

    He also indicated that Sinestro Corp would involve Superboy Prime and give some indication about the number of ring corps in existance. Star Sapphire corp?

    Superboy Prime with a yellow power ring would be completely unstoppable!

    I'm getting the feeling that this is sorta going to be the DC version of Annihilation, in that is space centric, and will be far better then the Earth Centered event, but will receive far less press.

    I love when large-scale events happen within books I already buy on a regular basis.

    I'm really looking forward to the issues of GLC during the event. Just in case you haven't been reading it, it's been consistently fucking awesome since Recharge...except that 2-issue arc when Guy got his shore leave...gyeh.

    Anyhow, it's a really great time to be a GL fan.

    Also, remake of the Master of Accessories cover...ha.

    don't forget that there aren't just two opposing forces anymore. There's the Lanterns, the Sin Corps, the Reach (possibly), the Sapphires and three other unnamed forces in the universe which have yet to show up.

    If all of this unfolds, this is gonna be so fucking rad.

    I've got myself a theory on this...
    Kyle/Ion business.

    Let's look at the cover everyone thinks is kyle going evil...
    talesofsinestro.jpg
    Let's compare it to an earlier photo...
    superboy-prime.jpg

    I think it's a fairly obvious callback to superboy prime. Now, why would Kyle let down fans if he wasn't going to die(which we at least theoretically know from countdown solicits) and wasn't parallax? In my opinion, it has to do with the idea of him as the one who carrie's the flag, so to speak. My guess is he's going to go toe to toe with SPB and get his ass handed to him, and possibly even cause some lesser GLs to die either rescuing him, or failing to rescue THEM, thus letting down fans who see him as the ultimate lantern, the flag bearer, etc, while not making him parallax, and still allowing him to be a challenger.

    Oh man... what are they gonna do to Kyle?

    And the most recent Green Lantern, where they implied there might be a Star Sapphire corps as well? That got me so hot...

    I'm just imagining the potential of an overall anti-corps, not of just yellow and pink, but other colors as well. Oh man.

    Then again, who's to say all the other colors would end up being evil?

    I count 7 forces......and there are 7 colors of a rainbow. Could it be this unfold into having 7 sets of rings each with a colored avatar and an emotion/state of mind/whatever attached? I would assume at least one of the unnamed factions would have to be "good guys", and maybe the Sapphires rethinking their strategy will lead to them repairing the rift that's formed between them and the Guardians.

    Even better, he beats up a Sin Corps guy and takes his ring, puts it on his other hand, then proceeds to fuck up the Frankenstein guy that has 2 rings.

    this has potential

    then he sleeps with one of the Star Sapphire ladies and steals her ring in the process

    But does the Blue Beetle armor use hardlight weaponry, or the Reach? I've heard of them, just don't recall if we saw one of them using their tech in that way.

    As for the Corpse, basically those black tablets with purple auras are rings with the visible spectrum altered. The Guardians did that so operatives couldn't be traced back to them easily. Look at what Nero did, since most aliens didn't know who Kyle was but saw the green aura and the ring and knew who to bitch at, and then HQ matched the description to Kyle. In this case they glow purple and there's no ring to make people say "Oh, the Guardians are fucking with us."

    I remember seeing Blue Beetle make a scarab-shaped shield out of blue energy. And the GL rings seemed to react very badly when he was around. So that' a good fit to me.

    I think Guy, as the Warrior of the Corps, would be a really good fit to have a yellow ring. He's already used one once, and he can certainly inspire fear in his enemies.

    I've got a little extra cash this week, and I'm interested in the GLC/SC war, so what issues have Sinestro Corps Back-Ups in them? Or are necessary for the war. I read some GLC, up to the Corpse I think, and not very much Green Lantern solo book at all.
