Johns Unleashes 'Wrath of the First Lantern' Crossover

From USA Today

Note - This is being posted a little late my apologies.  
Geoff Johns has introduced Red Lanterns, Orange Lanterns and other color-coded heroes and villains into Green Lantern lore.

Before all those, though, was the First Lantern, the major player in one of Johns' biggest galactic tales yet.

The "Wrath of the First Lantern" story line kicks off in February's Green Lantern issue 17 and continues in Red Lanterns, Green Lantern Corps and Green Lantern: New Guardians. The arc centers on this old, powerful and bizarre force and his role in the fates of Hal Jordan, Sinestro, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps, Simon Baz.

"I don't want to say he's a villain or a hero," Johns says of the First Lantern, who was introduced in DC Comics' recent Green Lantern Annual. "He's just a being who's targeting our main lanterns, our guys, to see if there's a way that maybe the universe could improve if they made different choices in their lives.

"You'll see why he's called the First Lantern within the story," the writer adds, "but he's someone who's going to take a look at every one of our heroes and main characters and really tear their life apart and rip them open in a way we've never seen before on a very cosmic scale."

Dovetailing out of the current "Rise of the Third Army" crossover arc, "Wrath of the First Lantern" — Johns' most personal Green Lantern story since the event series Blackest Night, he says — is an emotional examination of all the flaws and the lives of the main Green Lanterns.

It will also explore who the First Lantern is, what he wants, where he's from and what he means to the DC Universe. And according to Johns, he's unlike anyone who's ever come before.

"He's a very different ancient powerful character who has a very odd and disturbing point of view on the universe and on humanity and life, and where life can go wrong or go very good," Johns explains. "He's really not a guy who's motivated by revenge — not completely — or by power.

He has it all — he's a being who's just very, very inquisitive about life and the choices we make."

The story line focuses on Simon Baz, but like the new Lantern and his effect on his new teammates, the First Lantern's actions will ripple throughout the cosmos.

There is no black or white for him — there's just life, Johns says. "People go down paths and people change and people react certain ways, and he wants to understand why these decisions are made.

"But what he's doing and what his ultimate goal will be is going to tie into the very beginnings of the Corps and ultimately reveal where the Corps is going to go."

An old Green Lantern favorite will play a role in the story line — "Probably one of the lesser expected characters but a character people will recognize," Johns teases — and fans will learn what happened to Hal and Sinestro, two guys guys in for some big changes as they're woven back into the story line.

But "Wrath of the First Lantern" will be a very emotional arc for those guys as well as for all the Green Lanterns.

"It's almost like the butterfly effect: One decision that one being makes can have an entire change and effect on the universe itself," Johns says.

"The First Lantern really is an examination of everything we do, every choice we make, ultimately results in things that can affect the other side of the universe."

The Green Lantern Corps Loses A Member

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

From the creative team of writer Peter J. Tomasi, and artists Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14 serves as the next chapter of the monumental “Rise of the Third Army” crossover event that is currently spanning all of the Lantern titles.

In “Nothing Man,” Guy Gardner and his team are forced to confront the Third Army, who have just been unleashed onto the Corps. As an epic battle commences, they discover that this hostile alien threat is practically immune to anything they can construct from their power rings. The Green Lanterns fight valiantly but all fall in battle … except Guy Gardner.

Faced with the consequences of his choices, Gardner retreats back to Oa and is asked to report to the Planetary Citadel to meet with the Guardians. There, the Guardians tell him he has brought shame to the Corps by disobeying direct orders and leaving his teammates to be brutally murdered and/or recruited to the Third Army. As punishment, Gardner is informed that he has only one choice left: to resign from the Corps.

Defeated, Gardner swallows his pride and hands over his Lantern ring. Thus, he is stripped of his power and is banished from Oa. But what does his resignation mean for the rest of the Green Lantern Corps? With members dropping like flies, will they be able to defeat the Third Army? Or have these elusive villains already had their first taste of victory by breaking the Corps apart? Place your bets in the comments section and learn more as “Rise of the Third Army” continues in next week’s GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #14.

Below, take a look at the final page from “Nothing Man” as Guy Gardner is sent back to Earth, powerless and alone. And don’t forget to pick up your copy of GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14, in stores now!

SATURDAY SHOWCASE : Cool Green Lantern Symbol Art

We're Back

Yes we are back, due to a number of reasons work, health issues among other things I did not have time unfortunately to keep the site updated but I will be updating the site again, possibly a little slow at first but should be up to full speed so to speak soon. Thanks to everyone who views and supports this blog.



The story is by Greg Berlanti, Marc Gruggenheim and Michael Green with the screenplay by Michael Goldenburg, with details from the first draft as follows:

Update: The script was written in late 2011 by Goldenburg. The story treatment by Greg Berlanti, Marc Gruggenheim and Michael Green was written before Green Lantern's release.

• Most of the film is set in space.

• At the start of the film, Hal Jordan and Sinestro are paired to stop an intergalactic serial killer, Arkillo, who Sinestro later frees to join his Corps and restore order to the universe.

• Sinestro's decision to leave the Corps is mainly due to his distrust of the Guardians and the fact he feels that the universe laughs at the Green Lanterns. Sinestro feels that a new Corps should replace them.

• Sinestro visits Warworld to recruit members to his new Corps.

• Sinestro frees Amon Sur and recruits him to his new Corps.

• There is a reference to Amon Sur's previous attempt to destroy the Corps, which happened in Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters.

• Carol Ferris is kidnapped by Sinestro to draw Hal Jordan to him.

• Jordan requests that the Guardians deploy the entire Corps to Korugar to rescue Carol and defeat Sinestro's Corps, but they deny his request. He subsequently makes a plea to the Corps via transmission of his ring. Several hundred respond and encounter Sinestro's fledging Corps in a battle above Korugar.

• Hal, Kilowog and Tomar-Re use the large battle taking place above Korugar as a distraction to sneak to the surface of the planet to rescue Carol. There, they are confronted by Sinestro, Arkillo and Amon Sur. Hal and Sinestro evenly match each other, while Kilowog defeats Arkillo, and Tomar-Re defeats Amon Sur before they rescue Carol.

• The battle between the two Corps ends with the Sinestro Corps retreating due to the majority having little experience with the ring.

• There is a foreshadowing to the third film with a discussion by the Guardians mentioning that a "War of Light" is coming.

• Ryan Reynolds, Mark Strong, Blake Lively, Geoffrey Rush are all contracted to return for the sequel.

• Kevin Michael Richardson is expected to replace Michael Clarke Duncan as the voice of Kilowog. Update: Richardson previously voiced Kilowog in Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters video game and is the best guess to replace Michael Clarke Duncan, "sounds very likely."
