I don't get it… Is she a green lantern who isn't a green lantern?
Gusto - 5/20/2014, 9:10 AM
She's a girl.
Girls are yucky.
cipher - 5/20/2014, 9:11 AM
She's green.
cipher - 5/20/2014, 9:11 AM
Which reminds me- I should be drinking.
cipher - 5/20/2014, 9:11 AM
?????

I don't even know. That's just the way my mind works.
Nomis - 5/20/2014, 9:13 AM
DOUG MAHNKE doing the interiors??? Ugh. PASS!

I'll catch up when Ivan Reis come back!

Power ring, the alternate universe's green lantern, it's an odd thing I'm not sure I fully understand it myself, but I think it's supposed to be the first lanterns ring, the one the got rid of at the end of "Wrath of the first lantern"
case - 5/20/2014, 9:18 AM
Interesting. I like what DC are doing with their universe and character dynamics at the moment.
PsyGuy - 5/20/2014, 9:20 AM
The Power Ring weapon isnt like a green lantern ring. Its a being named Volthoom (the first lantern, Earth 3's version). He partially controls the host, and is not to be confused with Earth 2's "Starheart", who is good and is the ring for Alan Scott and Jade.

SIMPLE, right?
case - 5/20/2014, 9:22 AM
I am drinking ciph! And watching a huge dude named Kongo beat up an Aussie bloke in MMA. I've only just worn off a near deadly hangover, so I guess it's time to start again..?
HiroTheGeek013 - 5/20/2014, 9:23 AM
Is that Jade?
ManCalledSting - 5/20/2014, 9:23 AM
Psyguy: got it!
ManCalledSting - 5/20/2014, 9:23 AM
And she looks interesting.
Fastestmanalive - 5/20/2014, 9:24 AM
Its Power ring from the Crime syndicate. Opposite of Green Lantern.

Where GL's ring ran on will and fearlessness this ring attaches itself to the weak willed and cowardly and drains them like a parasite.

Guess that's where the paranoid thing comes in. Prophet thing is weird though.

And her look is kinda strange as well.
cipher - 5/20/2014, 9:25 AM
Hahahahaha, THAT'S THE BEST TIME TO START AGAIN, BUD!!

;)
cipher - 5/20/2014, 9:26 AM
Yeah, Ivan is a damn good artist. I haven't really read all that much GL, but I absolutely love anything that Reis does.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/20/2014, 9:27 AM
She's like a cheap X-man with that x on her chest.
UltimaRex - 5/20/2014, 9:28 AM
Someone's been watching You're Next...
Nomis - 5/20/2014, 9:29 AM
Ivan Reis have been spectaular on Justice League!



The best possible replacement for Jim Lee!

Ha fair call. It is around 2.30am here so I should get to it. With no responsibility comes great drinking...

McGee - God bless the irish :)
BenjiWest - 5/20/2014, 9:48 AM
Paranoid survivalist? Wanted fugitive? Damned soul? Sounds like my kind of girl.
nibs - 5/20/2014, 9:52 AM
Am I the only one who thinks she looks exactly like Cheshire?
jlabatman - 5/20/2014, 9:53 AM
When the hell does Forever Evil come out as a GN? Need to read that book!
LEEE777 - 5/20/2014, 10:37 AM
Whoa looks cool! ;)
Klone - 5/20/2014, 10:38 AM
What the hell is Johns doing for [frick]'s sake?

@nibs

I thought it was Cheshire before reading the description.
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/20/2014, 10:53 AM
Anything by Johns is gold.
batcheeks8 - 5/20/2014, 11:38 AM
I never got the butterfly motif
nibs - 5/20/2014, 12:03 PM
@MAK
yeah, even the construct-suit on her looks like a gas mask and Cheshire was all about poisons.

It also seems weird that she doesn't look scared and weak-willed like the previous Power Ring, but I'll give this a try.
BasedThanos - 5/20/2014, 12:08 PM
Meanwhile the other Green Lantern from Earth 2 will battle the Superman from Earth 6 and the Batman from Earth 9!!!

LOL @The new 52. I thought the whole point of this "Reboot" (if you can call it that since both Batman's and Green Lanterns' pre-52 histories are intact) was to cool it with all the convoluted Multiverse shit. Guess not.
manofsteel1942 - 5/20/2014, 12:38 PM
Ewww...looks like Hulk skeeted on her eye.


nibs - 5/20/2014, 12:43 PM
@thecaptain
uhhh I think your confusing this new 52 reboot with the crisis on infinite earths reboot of the 80s. nowhere has anyone said this was to get rid of the multiverse.
it's not actually hard to follow either. This is the green lantern from earth 3, the same one that has been a major focus since Forever Evil started like 9 months ago. that's it.
osideous - 5/20/2014, 12:50 PM
And the confusion, they wanted to scrap is even worse.
osideous - 5/20/2014, 12:51 PM
@nibs I'm actually the point of the reboot wad to get rid of all the confusion
Nemeres - 5/20/2014, 2:09 PM
With every new GL drawing of Van Sciver's that I see, my heart breaks a little more for that amazing Green Lantern movie series that could have been and now never will be. Damn you all to [frick]ing hell, Warner Brothers.
Space - 5/20/2014, 2:51 PM
I thought she was gonna look like this

Monitorearthprime - 5/20/2014, 4:12 PM
I sorry but the Earth 3 character are supposed to the the evil opposite of Earth 1(Prime). So Earth prime does not have a female Lantern so how is this possible?

Oh wait this is the DCnU where they through out years of ideas, stories, and rules never mind.
CeltiC527 - 5/20/2014, 6:19 PM
@Monitorearthprime Well there was a guy Power Ring that looked just like Hal Jordan but Sinestro killed him.
