So we got a black lantern

Superman

Martain Manhunter

Firestorm

But who else could they think of

Original Sandman?

Conner Kent ( since we can't call him Superboy)

Elongated man?

Dr. Light? ( remember they don't all have to be heroes )

Starman 2

Starman 3

Terra

Blue Beetle

but who else?

It would be a crazy idea to bring back Thomas and Martha Wayne as Black Lanterns. That would kill Bruce @smilepunch@

Except that based on Grant Morrison's goofball storylines over the last year, Bruce is currently kinda dead and Thomas Wayne is kinda alive. @loll@

I'd be more curious to see what the effect would be on a dead 'undead' character. Say Solomon Grundy is dispatched (like, again). Would he be like a mega powerful BL having already been killed to become what he did?

But if we potentially see anyone who has ever died, and is still dead, would said zombie have all the powers they possessed when alive? And should the black ring be taken from them are we left with only a corpse? But more importantly, when exactly does Blackest Night start? I know GL titles are beginning to give tidbits of info but when does the event really start? Is is going to be DC's big summer event, or smaller like Rebirth was?

That's the thing... they can use this chance to bring back anyone and everyone who has ever (or will soon) died. That's potentially the largest army possible as it does not include those alive now, or those whose time has not yet come.

no the point of my post was to put to rest who the superman was, im just trying to clear up the confusion. ive read the stories and am staying on top of whats goin on now. i keep reading what others have said and its wrong, this is just to be clear. as about superboy, he might be back but wont be called superboy, as per the reason they killed him in the first place. they cant use the name superboy without paying siegel and shuster's kids.

spoilers

the old firestorm will be a black lantern as well...

Blackest Night won't involve other Earths....Earth-2 Superman (Kal-L) died on Mogo at the end of Infinite Crisis and was buried on Earth.

The lantern corps follow the seven colors of the rainbow:

Red - Rage

Orange - Greed

Yellow - Fear

Green - Willpower

Blue - Hope

Indigo - Compassion

Violet - Love

Anyway, I'm getting all these figures. DCD's yellow Sinestro was great and Green Lantern's been one of the best books of the past few years.

Actually the Superman that died at the hands of Superboy Prime isn't really the Earth-2 Superman that the figure is based on. The Figure depicted is from the Earth-2 that sprang into existence after Alex Luthor re-created the multiverse with the giant tuning fork thing during Infinite Crisis. Therefore the Superman from Earth-2 that the figure is modeled after is from the Earth-2 that Gog sent Pee Gee to in a recent JSA arc.

And while I've got a good grasp on the whole multiverse concept, I also understand the lantern idea. Alternate color lanterns other than yellow are a recent introduction, given the length of publication of Green Lantern stories. Black, red, blue and purple are introduced in the last few years. Blue was introduced when Ganthet broke away from the Guardians, after the Sinestro Corps series ended, which was about 18 months ago I think. Black and red are very new as well, having been introduced around the same time. I've been reading lantern stories for years now.

You seem to be pretty confused on the multiverse.

The Kal-L Superman depicted here as a Black Lantern is the golden age Superman who died in Infinite Crisis. He was hidden away in a world of paradise and survived the multiversal trunctation in the ending of COIE. He emerged and was killed by Superboy-Prime. Now he is a Black Lantern.

The new Earth-2 is irrelevant to this story. The reason they are missing their Superman hasn't been explored, but is most likely because their history is about 80% similar to the original Earth 2, so the went missing for his own reasons that are similar to why the original Earth 2 Superman went missing.

I do know all about the Golden Age Earth 2 Superman, and how he died. However, I do remember reading (don't remember where) that the Superman who appears as a Black Lantern is NOT this Superman and rather the Superman that is currently missing from the existing Earth 2. Again, I don't remember where I read this, possibly Wizard, so that's why I posted what I posted.

ok lets settle this...the superman that is shown as a black lantern is EARTH 2 SUPERMAN, he died at the end of infinite crisis. the reason he was in earth 1 is told inthe story. he died on earth 1 and (im sure) buried on earth 1. the black lanterns are zombies, meaning anyone dead can and will come back as a black lantern...its really not that complicated...blackest night happens on earth 1

I'm not trying to argue so I don't feel the need to settle anything. I'm just expressing my point. If I'm wrong, so be it. I know what the Black Lanterns are but I was just talking.

Regardless of the nature of the character, I do think they're incredible looking figures. However I always think that when I first see the preview pictures. However when I see them on the shelf I'm disappointed because of the lack of articulation and something just doesn't translate from 2-up to production figure.
