I know this is a DC thread but what "horrible secret" is this?
Xavier erased the memory of a first "New" X-Men team led by the third Summers brother.
X-Men: Deadly Genesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He also did nothing and hide the fact that the Danger Room had become self-aware.
There is also Cassandra Nova, the twin he murdered in the womb. Granted he claimed she was absolute evil, but still.
Yes heros can't be noble any more, they have to be evil or screwed up, the line got blurred for so long, the villans became heros and there wasn't much difference. I wish they would stop retconning everything and stop ruining my memories of old stories, with yes they may have seemed great at the time, but really they were worthless and flawed.
Wait when are the new rings coming out? And the light up ones?
If I'm right the White Ring will be out with BN#8.
Light up rings are due in the summer......and I'm not sure about any other ring.
The Source said the White Rings are a promotional for Brightest Day #1, which comes out April 15, so I wouldn't expect those out until then.
The Flash and Green Lantern rings will be a promotional for Flash #1 and Green Lantern #53, due out April 14 and April 21 respectively.
And the light up Power Ring Set, according to the DC Direct website, will be on sale July 7th.
I've been getting back into Green Lantern through some of the hardbacks that are leading up to Blackest Night.
Out of the hardbacks, I've picked up:
GL: Sinestro Wars Vol. 1
GL: Sinestro Wars Vol. 2
GL: Rage of the Red Lanterns
GL: Agent Orange (Larfleeze is great!)
I usually just pick up trades rather than grab the individual comics these days, & DC is planning on releasing a bunch of BL trades in July.
I'd like to be up to speed with the events after the Agent Orange trade and before the BL trades. Are there any other trades out on bookshelves that cover the next few events?
You've got it covered. Agent Orange was the arc directly before Blackest Night.
Though I'd suggest Secret Origin as it more than anything lays the real ground work for BN.
alright im hooked, i just got into GL and am now on the list for the ring for the next issue, itll ptobably sit on my GL DCUC shelf which is awaiting the 5 pack.
hey is anyone reading Superman Secret Origin? in it, a character mentions
the death of Lex Luthor
and i keep thinking about that and wondering if he'll meet his maker by the end of Blackest Night...
I doubt it. I think it's a seed Johns planted for future Superman stories. Or maybe it's a reference to that storyline where fat Lex "died" but had his brain transplanted into a stronger, cloned body? Er, um, maybe not.
i thought about that too... (future stories, not fat lex) and think with JMS taking over Superman that maybe that story would come sooner rather then later... cuz everything Superman now has been based on what Johns started... but when JMS comes, he seems to have his mind ready to go on the stories he wants to tell... so who knows...
Green Lantern Corps #46 Preview - Comics Preview at IGN
GLC 46 preview. OMG, it looks beyond awesome.
so sweet! can't wait... too bad it got bumped a week...
Looks good. So Guy's a Trekkie. Interesting twist.
Wait...JMS is taking over Superman? Offically?
Dammit DC! Stop making me interest in comics I normally don't care about!
yeah... and wonder woman...
Newsarama.com : J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI To Write SUPERMAN & WONDER WOMAN
i'm actually not as interested... depending on the story ideas, i may drop superman at that point...
Oh, I may have to start picking up Wonder Woman.
Anyone know when the trade paperback versions of Rage of the Red Lanterns and Agent Orange are coming out? I could buy the hardbacks, but I'd like to have the versions that match the GL paperbacks I already have. And they're $5 cheaper.
