Future State: Green Lantern Announced
 
Quote:

Justice League Family

A thread of great change runs through the Justice League heroes: a new League is built upon secret identities (even from each other), but an old and evolved enemy will use these secrets to try and overthrow the world. For the supernatural heroes of Justice League Dark, the very fabric of reality has shifted, and heroes are being hunted.

For Flash, Shazam, and the Teen Titans, it all begins when the four Riders of the Apocalypse unleash hell in a battle at Titans Academy, Barry Allen is cut off from the Speed Force, a Famine-controlled Wally West may be beyond saving, and Billy Batson makes a deal with the devil that will change Shazam forever. Off-world, John Stewart and the remaining Green Lanterns are stranded in the shadow of a dead power battery; Jackson Hyde and Andy Curry are separated across the galaxy; and Amanda Waller executes her ultimate plan with a new but terrifyingly familiar Suicide Squad on Earth-3.

At the end of time, Swamp Thing reveals its true intention, ruling supreme until a remnant of humanity launches a rebellion, and Black Adam looks to the past as the only way to save the future of the Multiverse.

Superman or somebody should take "the fabric of reality" to a reputable dry cleaner's and be done with that problem.

Guy Gardner and G’nort?

I’ll take them where I can get them at this point.

Andrew NDB 10-16-2020 05:09 AM

What is this, an ongoing thing?

Two issue mini, I believe.

Hypo 10-16-2020 05:45 PM

Yes, the entire Future State event is a set of oversized anthology issues, miniseries and one shots set over two months showing possible futures. All this stuff isn't even necessarily in the same future I believe.

Assigned to map and contact new lifeforms past the 3,600 known sectors of space protected by the Green Lantern Corps, John Stewart and an elite team of Lanterns are trapped behind enemy lines and fighting for their lives when the Central Power Battery goes dark and leaves the entire corps defenseless.

Meanwhile, across the cosmos, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz finds herself powerless and forced to battle the invading Yellow Lanterns of the Sinestro Corps, and Guy Gardner, trapped on a distant world, decides to reopen Warriors Bar.

Except Guy's going to be so far away from it all he might as well not be appearing.

Potentially, all for the better. I wouldnít mind a story with Guy on his own since Iím not planning on following this event very closely anyway.

Big Blue Lantern 10-17-2020 07:50 AM

I'm excited to see Jo brought into DC proper and to catch up with Guy. I could do without G'Nort in perpetuity, but its only a 2-month event, so I'll stomach him to get the good stuff.

Ωmega Man 10-17-2020 02:14 PM

With everything they could've done with Green Lantern.... they give us Far Sector girl and a bunch of powerless GL's. Meanwhile, in the rest of the DCU.... new Aqua-people, new Batmen and Batgirls, multiple new Flashes, new Supermen....

Looks like disappointment will be par for the course. DC is actually attempting another Guardians of the Galaxy type team, but it's completely made up of de-powered Lanterns.

Just remember this is clearly 5G with a different coat of paint.

Power, de-power. Power, de-power. Never learning the lessons of the past.

Every Green Lantern power battery should be made like Kyle Rayner's (used to be) - crafted from the Central Power Battery itself, good for 1,000,000,000 years on its' own, able to make rings and power batteries on its' own. This "transdimensional link from CPB to the individual batteries (and even the rings)" is a disastrous design flaw. Even Sinestro exploited it with his Sinestro Corps to shut them down remotely. And if the Alpha Lanterns had lived, each of them could have been an independent battery, recharging hundreds of Green Lanterns each day in far-off realms.

No, the writers have to de-power the GLC and the GLs, making them fight with just their fists. Sigh. I'm not looking forward to this type of story being recycled.

I dunno. I mean I think it makes sense for the Guardians to reserve the ability to cut off power to a GL that goes rogue (even though they don't seem to exercise that very much), and in order to do that they CAN'T give GLs batteries that are completely independent.

TazzMission 10-17-2020 08:16 PM

The art looks good but the story is what i worry about . I havent bought a book since 2013 2014. Now do they give us more story pages or is it 8 pages of story and evreything else is filler with ads?

Space Cop 10-17-2020 08:36 PM

The standard (DC at least) comic now costs $4 and has 20 story pages. Occasionally, an extra page or two get in (usually sacrificing the previews page at the end).

Every time that has happened the Guardians have sent out other GLs/Manhunters/Alpha Lanterns to bring in the rogue. They never "cut off" just one power battery (they have restricted rings). It's a 100% or nothing function. Which is why I say it's flawed.

Trey Strain 10-18-2020 01:29 AM

It shouldn't be so easy for a GL to misuse his ring.

There also shouldn't be Corps whose function is to fight each other. There should be GREEN Lanterns. Period.

Trey Strain 10-26-2020 10:17 PM

And, as Grant Morrison has said, the Guardians, Oa and the CPB shouldn't be destroyed every few years.

My idea for a reboot was that Sinestro wouldn't even be a GL, let alone "the greatest." (Or is Hal "the greatest?" Or is Muhammad Ali? I forget.) That stuff wasn't even original. Geoff lifted it from the Old Testament, which says that Lucifer was the highest of the angels.

Better: Sinestro would kill Abin Sur with a yellow ring forged by the Weaponers of Qward, and steal his green ring. If I did that story, Guy would end up with Sinestro's yellow ring, besides his green ring, but he'd see no reason to tell anyone about it.

Then you'd never have all this crap about Lanterns misusing their rings, let alone entire rogue Corps.

Right now the only hope several older fans have are the alternate universes. Heck, the way continuity changes quarterly or annually in DCU, sometimes each GL comic book can be considered a separate universe all by itself.

Space Cop 10-27-2020 03:17 AM

Tom Taylor's work on Injustice and DCeased really felt more like pre-Flashpoint DCU. I liked his GLs (and other characters) in those.

Hypo 01-07-2021 07:11 PM

Thought the backup Hal Jordan story in Future State: Green Lantern #2 was solicited a being written by Christopher Priest it is actually by Robert Venditti.

Big Blue Lantern 01-11-2021 04:43 AM

Future State is reportedly really hot right now. Reserve your books early, fellow ringslingers.

Big Blue Lantern 02-15-2021 04:56 AM

I liked both books. They're anthologies that give time to not only John, who is the main focus, but also Hal, Jessica, Guy, and Keli Quintela. The last page of issue two is a surprise moment, although you can easily connect the dots with a little research. Some of the art is spotty, but these are highly enjoyable.
