Deep Dive: The Green Lantern #9 (2018)

Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp’s ninth issue of The Green Lantern features a cast of dozens. We’re introduced to a new cosmic superteam called “The United Planets of Superwatch,” Hal Jordan takes us on a recreational swords and sorcery adventure with his D&D group on the planet Atmoora, we get our first glance of the combined Green Lanterns of the Multiverse (or the “Guardians of the Multiverse”), and we finally see the fruits of Controller Mu and the Blackstars labor in the form of the Anti-Man.

Who Are Earth’s Green Lanterns?

The first issue of Young Justice introduces the Earth’s newest Green Lantern. Although she isn’t officially a member of the Green Lantern Corps (yet) it makes her the third new power ring wearer in six years and one of seven Earth heroes currently flinging green light. It can all get confusing. Now consider a new comic fan who’ll likely discover the Green Lantern Corps sometime in the next two years through the very probable introduction in the DCEU, as part of the Arrowverse, or in Krypton (and not to mention anyone who stumbles upon Ryan Reynolds in 2011’s Green Lantern film).

This is an attempt to clear up some of the confusion around the Earth’s Green Lanterns.

Deep Dive: The Green Lantern #6 (2018)

This one is much later than usual. As I’m hitting “publish” issue 7 is already on the shelves.

The Green Lantern #6 marks the end of the first volume of Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp’s run on this groundbreaking series. In addition to leaving us with a whammy of a cliffhanger for our emerald hero it also fills in a lot of gaps for Adam Strange that haven’t been filled with Rebirth. I believe this is the first confirmation since rebirth that both Alanna and Aleea Strange are alive and canon.

Here’s where you can find my previous The Green Lantern Deep Dives:

The Lanterns

Blackstar Parallax (a.k.a. Hal Jordan)

Another issue where Hal Jordan is THE Green Lantern. Much like the last issue, Hal is the only Lantern who shows up slinging a ring. It makes sense because to the rest of the Corps he’s still a Blackstar traitor (with exception of the Guardians who are in on the subterfuge). This issue ends (spoilers) with Hal seemingly sacrificing himself to save the known Universe.

Deep Dive: The Green Lantern Issue 3 (2018)

We’ve reached the third issue of Liam Sharp and Grant Morrison’s The Green Lantern and, wowza, is it a doozy. This one is a little more compact in scope. It mostly takes place at a Dhorian planet auction and aboard the spaceship of this issue’s main antagonist, The Shepard. What it lacks in locales it more than makes up in character appearances.

Krypton: Which DC Characters Could We See in Season Two?

Krypton opens an entire segment of the DC Universe that’s only been scratched by the other live-action shows (primarily through Supergirl). The Last Daughter of Krypton lives on Earth 38 where alien intervention is so common they have an entire organization, D.E.O., dedicated to Earth’s defense (most of our other heroes live on the alien-free Earth-One). Thanks to the season-ending cliffhanger of Krypton (which doesn’t take place in the Arrowverse) we can now look to the stars and beyond. In case you stopped watching after the first couple of episodes, here’s what you missed: General Zod, who traveled back in time under the ploy of stopping Brainiac from bottling Kandor (who the viewers had been led to believe had traveled back in time), is successful in his mission. He manages to alter the timeline so Kryptonians can conquer the stars thereby creating the possibility of more space-faring species and characters. It also, apparently, means a future without Superman.

One tiny catch, Krypton takes place 200 years before baby Superman was sent to Earth, so it does limit who could show up based on lifespan. Although Adam Strange could start playing with time travel to bring heroes back who could help restore the timeline and defeat Zod.

Assuming we’re solely dependent on what exists at the time of Krypton here are some of the alien species or characters who could make an appearance in future seasons of Krypton.
