John is now an ULTRAVIOLET Lantern
 
Are you kidding me?

Boy, does that sound dumb. Plus, it doesn't even seem consistent with the established emotional spectrum. So far, it has seemed like "positive" emotions are to one side of green, and "negative" ones are to the other side, so if Ultraviolet makes one ultra-violent, one would expect it to be more of an Infrared. ;)

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 04-17-2018 04:56 PM

LOL, I can't even take DC seriously anymore. They are now parodying their own sh*t. Oh lord they suck!

Trey Strain 04-17-2018 05:28 PM

At first I thought it was a joke.

I think the way the story is going is that a break in the Source Wall is causing things as we know them to change or disrupt. Therefore, narratively, I think it's okay if this new development doesn't make sense with Geoff Johns' Emotional Spectrum.

That said, the Ultraviolet Lantern sounds like a laughably foolish concept. I can only think it's supposed to be. I think I'll reserve judgment until I actually see what is going on. But yeah, on paper, this sounds REALLY silly. Worse than Phantom Lantern, even.

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 04-17-2018 08:42 PM

It DOES seem like a joke as done in some parody magazine like Cracked or something lampooning DC comics. Its just more proof that the people working there just don't get it.

jhpace1 04-18-2018 02:27 AM

Just when they had killed off the other Color Corps to keep the fans quiet...

Here comes Ultraviolet. Uh, not the movie. UltraMarine! No, not that one. John Stewart. Ultraviolet! No, John doesn't get Fatality back, not that Violet. Oh, just read the comic.

If it was Kyle, you'd probably be all over it.

I had an Ultraviolet Corps as a throwaway line ten whole years ago.

I just can't envision DC giving John a Parallax-style heel turn for years on end. I get the feeling that this is leading to some larger narrative plan, like a new villain who will wield this ultraviolent energy.

I think this development will only last for one story arc, if even that. I don't think it's anything too serious, relatively speaking. I also think it's intentionally wacky, so while silly, it isn't anything I worry about, concerning the well being of the John Stewart character. At least, that's the feeling this gives me, especially after reading the obviously intentionally silly-ish solicitation text. That's the big difference between what I think this will be and what Geoff Johns and some others have done with the Emotional Spectrum, which I don't care for. I have a feeling Snyder is intentionally doing something bizarre and kinda' silly, because he thinks it will be weird and fun (and hopefully there will be an entertaining story in there). Geoff Johns, on the other hand, was totally serious about the (IMO) utterly ridiculous stuff he was doing with all those different colored Corps.

Trey Strain 06-20-2018 02:09 PM

It looks like this is going to be temporary, thank goodness.

SPOILERS.

Well, obviously. I don't think any of us doubted that. Star-Lantern even said as much.

And issue #1 of JLA was reeally good. I hate the Super Friends detritus that DC still cannot step away from. But other than that, superb first issue.

I really like the Super Friends stuff, BUT it is a weird juxtaposition when you take the elements of that cartoon, which was very light, and make it about the dark super secrets of the universe.

Michael Heide 12-21-2018 01:29 PM

And now they're introducing an evil White Lantern John Stewart from another reality?

Lol they can't stop can they? I don't think DC can help themselves with these trainwrecks.

Mister Ed 12-21-2018 10:13 PM

I'm really not too excited about the whole direction JL is taking now. This whole "hidden mysteries of the universe" angle is making me weary, especially when it leads to things I find as stupid as the "Invisible Emotional Spectrum" or the "Still Force".

And it's so wordy! The last few issues have had more words on a page than the paperback I'm reading. I can't even keep all this deep mythology straight. They keep referring to all these people, events, and substances and I only vaguely recall them.

Star-Lantern 12-24-2018 06:39 AM

Yeah. Snyder's Justice League sucks.

jhpace1 12-25-2018 11:26 PM

Somehow I missed the exact procedure, but John Stewart in Justice League #14 (2019) has his Green Lantern power ring now as a tattoo on his second finger of his right hand, and John stated that his biological heart is becoming a power lantern.

Okay, who's trying to restart the Ion avatar again? This was a Kyle-or-Sodam Yat-only plotline.

In the picture the "other" John Stewart is a White Lantern. The "other" Flash looks like Godspeed from the Flash title. Wonder Woman has a cybernetic arm. These aren't "opposite" heroes, or "anti-matter universe" heroes, these might be more powerful heroes. Myziltplik is in the middle, so clearly this is his doing.

What? Like an Alpha-Lantern?

Sorta sounded like it. I also missed when this happened. I was thinking either I totally forgot something or maybe JL got ahead of an upcoming story in Odyssey.
