Really liked how Hal played Hand and then beat him afterwards. But I also liked how Sinestro gave that Indigo Tribesman a beating. Its the old Sinestro with the wrong uniform.

So whats the 4-1-1 on the Indigo Corps...any theories?

It seems to be leading to something where Abin Sur took all these uncompassionate assholes and imprisoned them on this mysterious planet in order to do a lil brainwashing on them...

Is that gonne end up being the long and short of it?

Brainwashed criminals caught by Abin Sur...me and some buddies of mine thought Mother Mercy would be involved but the timing is off.

Well Said! Loved the issue....

Is Will an emotion? If it's Spock's "Logic v. Emotion", then probably not. But consider for a moment a situation that you had to "will" yourself through something trying, tempting or painful...such as physical therapy, quitting smoking, etc.....if you've done those things or things similar than you know that it is an emotional response to "will" yourself through the trial, pain, or temptation...

I dunno, I feel like your will is exercised in opposition to the emotional reactions brought about by those trials. What is going to make you STOP in those instances? Not a physical inablility to continue, or else willpower wouldn't help. What KEEPS you from persevering is, I think, an emotional reaction to the trying circumstances. Will overrides that.

That said, I do think your will CAN be FUELED by an emotion in some cases, when the reason you see fit to fully apply your will is, say, the love you feel for somebody. This aspect of the equation is what I would think the Guardians would overlook or deny...

I don't care WHAT Hal and Blackhand said, I'm going to continue to read it as that willpower is in the center between the six emotions, with three negative ones on one side,and three positive ones on the other. I'll pass this off as Johns making a goof. And it slipping by a snoozing editor. AGAIN.

BTW, this BETTER not end with Abin Sur coming back to life. I WILL get my pitchfork and torch and head to NYC.

Other than that, and that it was too quick of a read, it was an enjoyable issue. Solid, middle of the road issue.

I'm curious at this point as to what the long-term plans for Sinestro are...is he too good a villain to stay in the GLC or too complex a villain to not be portrayed as heroic from a certain POV like say Magneto?

Well said, you are right....didn't see it that way.

Wow!, quite true and probably the most correct way of seeing the emotional spectrum in the GL Universe.

For me this was a great issue! Both Sinestro and Hal were cool and I can't wait to see what's happening next!

The definition of the emotional spectrum from Dave seems really good. Like that.

What I don't get (or maybe I've missed that) is, why can Black Hand (or the whole Indigo Tribe?) channel all emotions/the whole spectrum??

I loved this issue, really great show for both Hal and Sinestro. Especially the crazy and the smart Hal. I am intrigued with the Indigo Tribe and I can't wait for the next issue to see more about their origins.

Well Compassion has to do with understanding or empathizing with other emotions right?

Because the Indigo rings force the wearer to ONLY feel compassion. We found that out when Proselyte took over his host and Indigo-1 revealed the Tribe had Black Hand as a member. He's not trying to kill himself because he's being forced to feel compassion and only compassion. Hence the Tribe can channel another spectrum as long as it's Corps member in the area because they have no way of feeling it themselves. John Stewart, Ray Palmer, and Kyle Rayner didn't gain the rings in a normal manner, so they didn't act like the rest of the Tribe while wielding them.

The other clues are how Indigo-1 acted without the ring off to Sinestro in the book of the black during WotGL and how Fatality commented on Munk's repressed emotions in NG.

I knew they could channel the emotions, Indigo-1 killed the first Black Lantern with Willpower.

I love how Hal tricked Black Hand into showing Willpower so he could charge his ring.

I think I'm on board with that theory. I think Abin Sur tried to help out of genuine concern. I think it speaks volumes toward his character that he could find redemption in some of the deadliest villains in the universe. And I hope they find someone else to resurrect to lead the Third Army...
