Wasn't it later said that Abin was advised in some way by Indigo-1 many years ago after he heard the Blackest Night prophecy?

Then I would assume she is some kind of holy woman or priestess. Probably not his wife or that girl he rescued.

Indigo-1 herself said that she knew Abin during a time when she was "self-centered and self-important" and I don't think Abin's wife fits into that category.

Wait, Abin's wife? I thought you were talking about Arin. (Sinestro's wife)

That looks dead-on. I would bet this theory is correct.

nah, i think she just meant that in the way that the lanterns of the indigo tribe left their past identities behind them and act mostly as one onw, united by their quest to spread compassion throughout the universe. i remmeber reading somewhere that the indigos have little more than the clothes on their back and that they dedicate their whole life to their corps. so that means that the "self centred and self important" part was refering to the time they were individuals with full lives, centred around them and their needs.

We know next to nothing about Abin's wife for you to make that judgement.

We really need to get a score card to keep up with the Sur's

ABIN SUR-Former Green Lantern Of SECTOR 2814.

ARIN SUR-ABIN SUR's sister and Sinestro's lover.

AMON SUR-Son of Abin Sur and Former Sinestro Corps Member.

ABIN SUR's Wife-Has no official name that I know of and is the mother of Amon Sur.

This is a nice theory. This, and Weeja Dell, the monitor Nix Uotan's girlfriend from Final Crisis, are the two best (and most sensible) I've heard yet.

I'd say it looks pretty close I'll be watching. I think it's a pretty good theory.

Note the clothing on Abin's wife in the panel and then compare them to Indigo-1. Also, when Arin looks up at Sinestro, she takes on a more "alive" appearance, see how her hair is braided and she even looks like Indigo-1.

hmm it makes sense. All the leaders of the different corps are related (non-family) to each other somehow. As of now there's no corps leaders who's just random and not connected.

If it's Abin's wife there could be many reasons why she didn't fully recognize Abin. Perhaps when she took over the Indigo light, it made her memory lapse. In order to be a fully compassionate person your life has to be in the service of others, or at least put aside your own feelings to feel compassion for others. Perhaps some memory loss is a part of the equation. And losing your original identity to become fully group minded.

To me, Indigo-1 makes me think of Lianna. After her confrontation with Kyle and Jade, Lianna became a member of a holy order, led by Mother Zed.

I think as a member of the holy order she probably became a compassionate entity and you combine that with her hybrid like powers of the Guardians and Zamoran, you get Indigo-1.

I wasn't entirely surprised that she was someone who knew Abin -- after all, Green Lanterns get around a lot, and because Abin was obsessed with the prophecy, he might have had reason to speak with a lot of different sorts of people. Maybe Indigo-1 had other connections that made him run into her when he was looking for information about something else. Or maybe she was important in some other way.

What does surprise me, though, is that Arin knew her, too. As far as we know, Arin was just a civilian who happened to have Green Lantern connections through her brother and her lover/husband/whatever. Presumably she spent most of her life on Ungara and we know that she spent some time on Korugar, and that Korugar is where she died. But she probably (as far as we know) didn't have any real adventures or major travels in her life other than that, and thus had much less opportunity to meet someone like Indigo-1 no matter what she was before joining the Indigo Tribe.

To me, that implies that Indigo-1 is either Ungaran or Korugarian herself, and Ungaran seems to fit better judging by her appearance. Though really, who knows? Maybe Arin did a lot more travelling in her life than we might suspect.

Now it hit me that Geoff has already introduced Abin, Amon and Arin into BN, but Abin's wife has been really ignored and not talked about aside from these few panels in GL overall. It would explain somethings like why Indigo-1 seems to know so much about The Blackest Night and why Abin recognized her.

Maybe i'm reaching but could Indigo-1 be the wife of Abin Sur who has spent her time since his death preparing for BN all of these years after learning about it from her husband?. I don't know but i'm really curious now to see if i'm onto something, so what do you guys think i'm I reaching or what?.

Abin's Wife...



Indigo-1...
Sinestro would know her if he knew Abin's sister enough to be involved with her. why doesn't he recognize her?

hmm interesting theory..and Ive read the thread so far and I have to agree it could possibly be abins wife..as from the panel she has the bandages on her arm same as Indigo-1.

All will be explained in the end of where she came from so who knows but I think this is the closest theory we have had to date.

Very interesting theory and possibly true but we'll just have to wait and see, Abin's "I know you.."cryptic comment before being obliterated and your pics showing the likenesses between Abin's wife and Indigo-1 gives it some ground to stand on. But like i said we'll just have to watch as Blackest Night progresses before we see if it's right or not.

I kind of liked the idea that she was the child he rescued from Ysmault. That would give her more of a logical tie to the whole situation, and explain why recognition would be less certain. I really HOPE that is the case.

(Actually kind of wish nobody had suggested it, since now it would be less of an "Ah-ha!" moment if it is true, and if it turns out to be something that seems LESS ingenious to me, like it being Abin's wife- which is a definite possibility- I'll be disappointed.)

They don't look similar to me at all.

Abin's wife is more reddish in color while Indigo-1 is almost a light pink.

That's why I pointed it out!

Nothing has been done with the child since (from what I've researched) and the child and Abin could of had a long conversation once he had done the rescuing.

I mean sure the child was very young in the story so it would be hard to believe that she would be naive and that Abin talked her out of it but it's not above a Geoff-Con turning her into a teen aged girl in need of rescuing because she was too stupid to ask for help or whatever.

Or it could be that, some years after the rescue, they crossed paths again. Perhaps at that point she was a teen or something whose life was a mess, at least in part as result of what she went through back then.
