Sinestro was fear... and Atrocitus was rage. WTF happened to that?

~KL~

He's always cared about Dex-Starr and you have no idea what Atrocitus' interests are, so what if he likes movies? that hurts his character? I think it develops him more and makes him more than just a rampaging animal. Atrocitus is one of my favorite characters and happy he gets an ongoing because he deserves especially after Green Lantern #61.

Atrocitus, most likely saw a few shows while doing a blood oath, I'd imagine an eternity on Yasmult would give you time to catch up on How I Met Your Mother or The Big Bang Theory, Ever since his Mera construct I've gotten the feeling his Rage was waning. Perhaps this'll allow him to find a new Rage Muse...I was sure the original description said they dealt justice Their Way

...But acts like the Mos Eisley Cantina Band would conceivably follow the same career trajectory as actors. This is kind of a silly complaint anyways. Aliens having a form of government and advanced space travel? Everything's copacetic. Aliens having entertainment such as tv shows/actors? RAAAAAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Really? You think that in a universe as vast as it is in the DCU would be limited to only having actors on Earth? Seriously?

Where does it say anything about a "fading career"? He states that he feels as though he is "A fading actor repeating empty lines." That sentence is so vague. It doesn't mean he has to be using a Hollywood screen actor, or anything even remotely resembling what we have here on Earth.

Please, using Star Wars as a comparison? And besides, there were actors, ads, commercials and music in Star Wars. Figrin Dan and the Model Nodes, Jo Yozawa, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band, all the holographic posters on Coruscant in EII, the DANCERS, the space opera where Palpatine tells Anakin about Darth Plageus.... Just because Obi-Wan wasn't watching soap operas or reality tv in his hut on Tattooine when he took Luke there, doesn't mean they don't have actors and performers. Of course they would have entertainment, in some form on alien planets, even in sector 666...

So you don't like it. It's not a masterpiece, but at least have a better reason then that for your opinion. I'm giving this book a chance. Hate and Rage are very understandable and emotions I can find easy to relate to, and not just for myself. Which can easily either make or break the book.

The book needed a more human voice in all the madness, it didn't need to make the baddest of the bad sound like just another human. I'm still giving it 3 issues to change my mind, but if it just makes Atty more human every issue then it's definitely getting dropped.

I probably did overreact at first, but something about the voice the creators have given him just seems off.

Atty is a whore!!! LOL

did we learn nothing from Star Wars people? Earth isn't the only place in the universe that has bars, music, or yes even movie stars

Not a bad issue. Had a lot of recap, but offered a little something new.

Loved the art.

Emo Atrocitus is epic bad.

Why not just have him staring in a mirror putting on eyeliner as he mournfully lipsyncs The Cure?

Fail.

Call me crazy but all I could think about when looking at Bleez trying to talk was: imagine what the bitch is like on rag!

All joking aside, again, like GL#1, this issue was surprisingly good..but I do hope they expand upon the rest of the Corps...I got problem with Bleeze and Dex being the "lieutentants of sorts", but I wanna see more about them...especially the round one!

This issue was basically what I expected, nothing surprising, nothing horrible either.

While lots of people will probably thing "Atty, what happened to you, you used to be so full of Rage now you're...not." This issue did a good job of explaining why. His Rage was fueled by what happened to him, his family, his people, and his Sector as a result of Krona - basically he was fueled by Revenge. Now that he can't exact his revenge, his Rage weakens. It makes sense. Plus, Rage is probably one of, if not the, hardest emotions to keep going over a long period of time - much harder to remain in a state of permanent anger than it is Greed or Fear. Think about when you've been mad, how long did it last? Did it go away eventually? Really, no biological organism can survive being totally enraged for that long, it will eventually burn you out.

The only major downside was Attys vision of all the suffering going on in the Universe - too much of it focused on Earth based events/things, when I'm sure there is much, much worse out there. Hell, Darkseid should be front and center considering what happens on Apokalypse.

Anyway, I was pleased, I'll keep reading this book for a while yet I think.

This was really good and really great #1 issue bringing you into the mind of Atrocitus and knowing his pain and thoughts. I really like Atrocitus and I hope we see some more new Red Lanterns. I was glad to see this being really good because I wasn't sure with Milligan's writing but I definitely believed in this book.
