Let’s end the evening with the best comic book on the stands last week, Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns. This series is the prelude to next year’s highly anticipated Blackest Night series. This series looks like it is going to be on par with the violence and mayhem within the Marvel Ultimates series. The Red Lanterns are fueld by their hate and Rage and their power batteries are created from their own expunged blood, you have to love the viciousness of that, their oath is not as catchy as the Sinestro Corps or the Green Lantern Corps, but we have their violence, which makes all things okay, so read this series and remember; “With blood and rage of crimson red, ripped from a corpse so freshly dead, together with our hellish hate, we’ll burn you all, that is your fate!”

Thus are born the Red Lanterns from deep within Sector 666 and their leader the greatest nemesis to Sinestro Atrocitus. There is a long standing history with this character and his connection to the “Blackest Night” prophecy, The Guardians of the Universe, Sinestro, Hal Jordan and Abin Sur, so it is fitting that he stand on the front line in delivering the knife to the throat of the Green Lantern Corps. As it stands all the members of the Red Lanterns appear consumed by their rage and devoid of thought other than to kill after being possessed by their Red Rings. This is displayed when Hal is trying to breakthrough to Laira, a former Green lantern, and is unsuccessful. Atrocitus appears to be the only one who is within control of himself while wearing the Red Ring. I have a lot of questions about this series and where it is going, but I am sure I will be given answers that appease the sadist in me. The exciting part is the reveal of a Blue Lantern who indeed wants to help the Green Lanterns, in what ways is the question. There is also a reveal that one of the Guardians may be possessed by Parallax and battling for control of herself.

Later this week prepare for an in-depth review/look at the return of Darkseid or Rebirth of Darkseid on Darkseid revenge.
