    They've been in the back of Green Lantern (solo) since at least number 18, I think, possibly one or two further back.

    I think this single event will contain everything a superhero comic book should have: Heroes who have a sense of humor, tons of awesome evil villians, crazy space battles, bling-bling Hal Jordan, and a green lantern who doesn’t socialize.

    I buy few comics these days (Iron Man, Green Lantern, DMZ) but anything this story arc touches I will be slapping my money down for. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping the DC writers put in a small reference to Marvels Annihilation Wave arc, maybe just have a few Green Lanterns pass through a sector with some very familiar destroyed bug like ships floating in space and have one say 'looks like everything here was annhilated!' ;)

    The most recent arc of GLC was essentially the first battle of the war.

    Unfortunatley the GL arc that had the backups wasnt that great, but it had Acuna on art so you may jizz over it.

    I have an old Infinite Crisis Banner that I just need a font that looks good.

    The color distortion on the bottom is something odd from imageshack..... fixing that with the new one. Just need a proper font for the top that looks good with yellow.

    Also I can't find a good shot of their logo.

    EDIT Best I can do on short notice.....

    You may, if you're with Sin's Boys you can just change it to say We're with Qward in yellow. I forget what size I used but the font is Magneto. Finding a good Sin Coprs group shot might be hard, so for now you guys will have to use pairs or solo shots of people.

    Down the line when I find a better quality scan of the logo (the one I used needed the least doctoring), I'll probably update it.


    EDIT So there's practically no hope of beating Para unless a green courage....lion......eagle.....something avatar empowers one of the GL's. Or...for an oh shit moment, the Guardians use SBP somehow to bitchslap Para.

    -sigh- You would think they wouldn't make this mistake again, but I guess you'd be wrong. I guess that whole Ion mini means nothing now and the whole torchbearer thing is kinda useless too. Kyle was always my favorite GL too. And I was looking forward so much to this event too....

    Bullshit.

    That reeks of fan art. Good fan art (aside from the mouth) but fan art nonetheless.

    I highly doubt they would let the cover artist for a big event give this kind of shit away.

    I bet it's a ring construct, if the image is real.

    If it makes you feel better, it seems as if Kyle's caught at a weak moment by Sinestro. From what I've read, Sinestro actually rips open Kyle's chest open and shoves a Yellow Ring Battery into him. Doesn't look like it's a permitted posession.

    Another potential SC recruit, Mogo, at least unwittingly, since the trainees that have been visiting him have been going bonkers, that or he may just be playing host to the viral SC member.

    Thoughts?

    Kyle as Parallax? Hal vs Parallax showdown? Ion and Parallax showdown with Kyle as the battleground?

    Perhaps the guardians are trying to kill parallax once and for all and thats why Kyle became Ion in the first place?

    I got it. I figured out how Kyle is in two places at once. The Kyle running around with Jason and Donna is from another Earth. Bob picks up Donna and Jason and disappears. If they go dimension hopping immediately from that point, along the way they'll run into another Kyle with the ugly crab mask suit (as seen in the cover sketch that's been going around). Meanwhile on New Earth, Ion gets the call to assist defending Oa or something and heads out to help. At the very least it makes sense.

    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!
    Isn't he already pretty much unstoppable? Wouldn't it be like giving King Kong a baseball bat? It makes him, like 2% more dangerous, but without it he's still King Kong.

    I love how Mogo did that. And warned all the GL's (paraphrased here)

    "You should move now"

    "But, we can..."

    "No. Move. Now."

    I can't remember too many instances of Mogo talking directly to someone either, and not through an avatar. But It's been a while.

    Thank you, couldn't have done it without your original green lanterns sig. And the font was called symbol. I was trying to look for an evil menacing font but since there was none in photoshop, I just choose this one because it looks alien and Qward turned out pretty cool.

    Yeah. It's a pretty big event, and that would be a pretty cool thing to happen in the story, if temporary. I don't see why it has to be the new status quo.

    You know, the whole multiverse really has me thinking of comic book plots in an entirely new way. There's way more to consider, and they can actually get away with some things like this or killing The Question with the multiverse to fall back on.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
