Nice development at the end. The issue itself was so-so.

I officially now hear Zilius in his cartoon voice.

I'm not thrilled that Jack can just override the ring and speak without going into the ocean. And a napalm construct?!

They weren't Geoff-Cons at least. And I don't think that they were very significant.

I'm not diggin this whole "civil war between the red lanterns" thing. I'd just rather there'd be some kind of tension between Atty and Bleez.

'Twas a solid issue though.

The silhouette during Atty's blood ritual looked a bit like the butcher, methinks that he needs to be found to help remedy the RLs problems.

The one big retcon was very significant, and does damage to Atrocitus' character. If I'm recalling it right, anyway.

More damage than becoming a murderous vigilante out to act his own form of vengeance?

All the giant crap party aside, looks like there's a little nugget for the Indigo storyline here tying back to 'Tygers'. So would it be considered a spoiler?

Looks like what we knew all along, Indigo-1 is the child Abin Sur saved from Ysmault. What a clumsy reveal.

Most likely. Though the logs imply that she was the ship's pilot. Retcon?

Great minds must think alike; I put the same theory forth in my upcoming review. Of course, we can't be the only ones who'd thought of that.

Odd, I thought that theory was denied. Of course, that wouldn't be the first time a theory was denied and turned out to be true, assuming my memory isn't faulty yet again.

Still, while it might be a clumsy reveal, I'll be happy if this turns out to be the case, since I think that makes a lot of sense...

What are you referring to? A big retcon didn't leap out at me, but I confess I might not have been reading it all that closely. I was distracted by the fact that I had no idea what was going on, because, as it turns out, I never finished reading the last issue somehow.

How the Red Lantern Battery was formed. IIRC, Atrocitus originally built it by killing the other four Inversions. Now, in RL #8, he did so by killing the remainder of his own race.

Well that's a silly retcon- most likely a simple mistake. He DID kill the other survivors of the Manhunters' slaughter, but they weren't of his same race.

It may not be a ret-con, it may simply imply that the inversions were a part of his race twisted by the blood magics they dabbled in.

Or it may be an indicator that this book is inconsistent trash.

A tie back to 'Tygers' where it's CLEARLY established that the Inversions are demons, evil as evil gets, taking everything the early Oans had to defeat and even then, had to simply imprison.

But Atrocitus wasn't a demon. Wasn't a force of evil wrapped in the black cloud of mysticism. Remember? He's a naked psychologist.

I'm done with this book. This thing has been a turd from day one.

They might have been the remainders of his civilization. And it could be that there was a wide variation in appearance among his race.

The other Inversions were very clearly different species.

Though they appear different physically, nowhere that I can find is it stated they aren't of the same species, etc. I searched back to Alan Moore's story about them and even there they are called Inversions (though that story calls them "immortal demons" as well....so I guess they are all of the same race in that version). It does state; however, that the Guardians put them in those "forms"....though Atrocitus' origin appears to differ....so with the retcon who knows?

Why do they even have these unesercery retcons? By the way, I found this Rankor micro on the internet, I thought you'd all be interested.

Well despite the retcons, I like Abysmus and I hope they keep him around as a regular antagonist for Atrocitus. I like that he is adorned in the skin of a guardian, and his existence points to the fact that maybe Atrocitus doesn't have as good of a grasp of the red lantern as he would lead others to believe. If he screwed up creating his first batch of lanterns it might not be a stretch to say he's still experimenting with the new ones; preparing his army for his holy crusade of vengeance. I think that Jack Moore is going to lose his mind to rage soon without submerging in the blood ocean. Maybe there is some ramp up time for the red rage to take complete hold of the host in some cases.
