Let's use this thread to ask our fellow posters for information.

I'll kick it off. Who was the character who was like a cicada in that he was buried for some number of years before coming out?

Dave Cormier? I was at his coming out party.

Andrew rolled out the shag carpet for me. There was dancing and frolicking. It was beautiful.

I am not sure. Wasn't black hand actually burried? I remember Stel being put in a kinda glass coffin,same with Sinestro,other then that I would guess Nekron.I think I remember a image of him poping out of the Ground,with flesh and what not dripping off him. I wanna say that was like a Green Lantern Corps special or something.

I am guessing not who you were looking for though.

No, he's talking about a GL that was literally a bug (like a locust). I can picture him real clearly but I can't remember the name.

I think it's the character who at the end of one story was rubbing against Hal like a cat, and Hal was laughing because it tickled. I don't think he looked like an insect.

I'm not even sure that he was a Green Lantern.

Sorry to mislead. I'll ponder it some more.

I thought I remember Hal thinking Itty tickled at some point. Itty also was buried and resurfaced, but not for years (and he was kind of a nasty blob or something when he resurfaced, before taking his final form).

You're right, it was Itty!

I didn't even think of Itty, but that's right. He had a sort of hibernation and metamorphosis.

Anyway he'd make a good sidekick for someone, like the "little helper" character in the Gyro Gearloose comics by Carl Barks, as long as you didn't overuse him. Hmmm....

The recall you guys have on some of this stuff is uncanny. I used to think that I was the king of trivial GL knowledge until I signed up for this forum.

Mods, can we get a sticky on this thread? I'm sure other people will have similar questions.

What issue had a new GL introduced (gets a ring) and killed in the same issue?

There are probably more than one here, but I'm thinking Vol2...

There have been plenty. Yron for example, who got the ring after Stel died, but gave his life so that Stel could return and truly save the day. Anything more specific you remember?

Does anyone know how many Green Lanterns Geoff Johns killed off? He killed few if any that he created, but the carnage he inflicted on Lanterns who other writers created must have been large.

I do seem to recall him bringing back some that other writers had killed (like Marz). Would we subtract those from the total? Or is that a totally separate question?

You could make a note of those to balance it out as much as possible.

I'm actually curious to figure out the exact answer to this, now. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make a systematic survey of all the stuff Johns has ever written with GLs in it (I'm assuming that we are counting anything he wrote, not just the GL title, so long as a GL died? Because I recall some dying in events he penned).

I hope somebody else does, though.

Yes. All the GLs. I believe the total might be a lot higher than is generally thought.

Maybe people should just start posting the names of the ones they can think of and we could total them later.

We'll have to be careful, though. Sometimes GLs died during Geoff's tenure on GL, but in other books he didn't write. It is sometimes hard to recall which ones those were.

Unless we just want to blame him for all of it, under the assumption that he was controlling all things GL behind the scenes...I'm not sure I'm prepared to believe that he micromanaged other titles quite that much, though, to dictate specific GLs to die.
