ORIGINAL SINCORPS?
 
i was reading the VOL 3 showcase and came across an issue where Sinestro recruited street level thugs, gave them rings, and his old school uniforms.
I think it was issue 57-8?
they were pretty easily handed their asses by Hal and Alan, but wow there's a germ of an idea there--perhaps this is where Johns got the idea?

Limelantern 08-04-2008 11:52 PM

I have never heard of this. Do you have a scan?

I always though Sinestro would have to recruit some more followers if he was ever to realise his dream of taking down the Green Lanterns. He is a little outnumbered. But I also thought he was not a share the power kind of guy. And I still believe there is some kind of protocol in case some members of his corps get the idea that he should be replaced.

RichSan 08-05-2008 12:00 AM

sorry don't have the ability to scan anything--i'm sure others here could help out.
it kinda freaked me out 'cause in the issue Sin moves the CPB to another dimension first
then uses his henchmen to fight Hal/Alan. pretty powerful for one guy, one ring.
they weren't very organized -the whole thing happens in like 2-3
pgs of the story.
i think they actually are called the evil lanterns or evil green lanterns.
i'll have to grab my copy of the trade when i get home (at work now)

Sinestro has always used others for his "Revenge", what do you think he was doing with the Qwardians he was useing them as a personal army to fight the Guardians and the GLC.

1 issue. Hal's gotten sloppy since then.

Johns tells a good tale, but if people ask "why hasn't DC done this already?" They don't know their history! Not including this instance, there has been two other Evil GL Corps ... BOTH Qwardian related!

Prime 08-06-2008 06:31 AM

Why do they all LOOK like Sinestro?

Lishego 08-06-2008 06:44 AM

Awesome, its kind of nutty!

Prime 08-06-2008 06:59 AM

They probably confused them with Sinestro himself - figured they were other Krugerians. The early days of comics, what can I tell you?

Oh my God, you have no idea. In GL V2 150 the Qwardians create an Antimatter Green Laneter Corps that wears blue, has blue rings, yet shoot "black" light. Beams that are drawn exactly like GL beams, but are colored grey! And yet they are still called the Antimatter "Green" Lantern Corps!

In another issue, Eclipso creatres a "negative" image of Hal - complete with a ring. Think "black and white photo" negative. So it's all black with white shadows, right? That means a black ring. But this ring shoots red light (with purple being his weakness)!

Awesome find.

HonorGuardLantern423 08-24-2008 12:30 AM

I wish they would make more GL Archives, they arent far from this issue. Mabey I can find it on Ebay. Awesome find by the way.

The actual error there is the fact that the negative Hal was a black-and-white photo negative, instead of a color photo negative. The chromatographic opposite of green and yellow is red and purple, respectively.

Damn thought I had this issue, have #56 which Hal fights a purple Thing want-a-be.

Kuhan 02-25-2009 11:50 PM

hahahahaha


corny days of comic books

Tarmode 04-09-2015 06:21 PM

Sinestro should be careful, especially if the Qwardians decide to organize with the Anti-Monitor. Sinestro should give them respect, especially since they are partly responsible for where he is today.

Big Daddy Dave Skywalker 04-10-2015 12:13 AM

Man, this is an old thread!

Fearless 11-24-2015 03:51 AM

WOW where did this thing get drudged up from?

Tarmode 06-20-2016 07:29 PM

They need to delve more into Thaal's background. It seemed like his parents were highly selfish people, which probably influenced a lot of Sinestro's highly narcisstic nature. Also more info concerning his sister.
