Wonder Woman is doing the best she's done in decades. If Chiang(and/or Azzarello) leaves its of their own doing. Chiang's page rate isn't that high that they have to get him off to justify the sale rank.

The series is still critically acclaimed sure but after staying stable sales wise for a couple of months it's been dropping (not by much but dropping nonetheless), plus I believe that Azzarello said he would be comfortable with leaving the book after a year even though he still has other plans for Wonder Woman. So while personally I agree that it would be a mistake to take Chiang and/or Azzarello off the book, I wouldn't exactly be shocked if DC made that decision.

Wondering if New Guardians real cover will have an Indigo Tribe member apart of it? I mean with the Tribe still around the New Guardians should have one.

I hope so. Because this outfit defies all principles John stands for. John Stewart would never wear a mask, especially a mask which covers his whole head.

If it's a new Earth Green Lantern I hope this will be only temporary. We have enough Earth GL we don't need another. Before brining up another Lantern they should give John Stewart his own book goddammit!

Mark it down, I'm calling it here.

The Green Ski Mask IS John.

Shunned by the Guardians (as seen in GLC10), he receives a ring from either Sinestro or Hal, based on however GL shakes out heading into Trinity War. Either that or he gets Guy's ring after it's stripped from him for breaking John out of the pokey.

Either way, given all the exposition in GLC between Guy and John about having normal lives, John comes back home and hides his identity this time, but carries whatever weakness is present in the ring (which leads me to believe it's a Hal/Sinestro copy), hence the sidearm. Plus, as we've seen, John is more than proficient, having multiple instances of making gun constructs consistent with his service background.

Be sure and shower me with accolades when it's revealed that I'm right.

And the Arabic tattoo is just to throw people off? Though honestly I would probably like it better than creating a new GL with a personality extremely similar to John.

On the DC Homepage it says:

PROLOGUE TO THE THIRD ARMY!
The introduction and origin of a surprising new Green Lantern!

John is there since 1972.

But we all know that for for Geoff Johns and Dan Didio old means new.

In fairness they've been known to make false statements in previews to throw people off.

Still, it certainly looks like it's a new GL. Unless they're adding further diversity by making John a Muslim.

I think it's a new GL. Bruce knows John but he doesn't know this character and I don't see any reason why DC should be wrong in its preview except that John is black. That's literally the whole reason people are saying it.

My mind also connects the gun to John. Of course John uses construct guns, but that's another reason my mind makes a connection. Also, this'll make ANOTHER Earth GL in the mix.

But that's just devil's advocate agreements, I don't think they're the same guy.

Oh, c'mon. Batman is always supposed to know EVERYTHING. (Except maybe the members of his own family, apparently.)

More seriously, though, it would be a big stretch to imagine that he DOESN'T know all the current GLs from Earth, if not personally at least by the contents of his inevitable dossier.

Does a green glowing tattoo with some arab gibberish automatically make you a muslim?? And since when does it care which religion or belief a superhero has, except Azrael of course, that's unimportant for storytelling. If they decided to bring in a Muslim. I have to ask. For what?

Nevertheless. If that's so, then be it. But I have fucking big problem with that mask. No Earth Lantern runs around like mexican pro wrestler.

Some of the looks reminds me of Blue Beetle. But maybe I'm only imagining things..

And that gun does not look like a construct.

It doesn't I suppose, but it's not like this is an especially deep comic. It's one reason John could suddenly have a glowing green tattoo.

Not that it's an especially great reason. I don't really think this is John. But it's one way this could possibly be John.

Why make him a Muslim? Why make Alan gay? Why make Nick Fury black? Do any of these changes matter? That's a whole 'nother thread.

And I never said the gun looked like a construct. Why even bring that up?

Well, not saying it's John or not, but to help the devil's advocate role, remember this is the Nu52, John hasn't been in the JL apparently, and Guy didn't know Martian, so it could easily be this version of Batman doesn't know enough of John to recognize his fighting style under the mask to tell who he is.

Th Nu52 is the greatest crap in DC History, ever. Totally clueless. Only a marketing scheme. I'm disinterested in what goes on in the DC Universe than never before. Only the Green Lantern books prevent me from dropping DC permanently.

The new Earth GL should have been a woman. Total bullshit on this new character. He's clearly not John, but I bet he does get John's ring.

Maybe his John from alternate world?! We will learn the final fate of John in Glc 12! Death is lurking John and black hand will recruit him and he will seek revenge on Guardians for his harsh punishment? Oh dc dont kill John!

I agree with that. Another nice idea for an Earth GL was that big blue whale like in the short series: The End (or was it The Death) of Animal Man. That was really creative. But I too think, we have enough male human presence here. A woman (like Jade back in the days) would be the only additional Earth Lantern, I could live with.

If I look at the nu52 crap that's very likely.
