Blackest Night #1 SPOILERS
« on: July 16, 2009, 08:11:44 AM »
SPOILERS




1. Black Hand digs up the skull of Bruce and claims it all connects to everyone.

2. The four earth Lanterns attend the ceremony at Coast City and all ignite a green power battery memorial statue.

3. Hal reflects on the various tragedies of each of their lives---John and Katma, John and Xanshi, Kyle and Alex and Jade, Guy and Ice, and himself with his father--and how it made them who they are.

4. Next is a series of scenes at various grave sites---Ma Kent, Clark and Conner at Johnathan's grave; Prof. Stein and company at Ronnie Raymond's, Bart and Cassie and Cyborg at the Titans memorial, The Flash Rogues at their secret grave site, and Kyle and the JSA at Valhalla (the hero memorial garden in Metropolis), Mera and Tempest at Arthur's grave next to the Lighthouse, and Alfred going to the cemetery to see Bruce.

5. Alfred notices Bruce's desecrated--he then claims "I've made a terrible mistake"

6. Hal and Barry are in the underground vault where the JLA is keeping dead villains. Barry asks Hal to tell him who else has died besides Batman, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter.

Hal uses his ring to show him, and Barry seems broken up over Ronnie Raymond and Ralph and Sue. Hal then explains to Barry HOW Ralph and Sue died. Hal says "for the 1st time the Flash sits down"

7. In St. Roch, Hawkman and Hawkgirl argue over their destinies with each other and Carter takes a call of the Atoms(Ray palmer). He wanted Carter to go with him to see Jean.

8. As Hal finishes up his story about Ralph and Sue, Barry finally asks about Carol. To which Hal responds that they aren't together and that it's better that way. And that she is "safe." Which is superimposed over a battle between the Star Sapphires and SInestro Corp, which Carol is leading. Apparently he doesn't know Carol has been recruited by the Sapphires.

9. Alfred calls Hal and Barry and begins to tell them what happened to Bruce.

10. On Oa, the Guardians finally realize that Ganthet and Sayd were right. The decide to initiate a "Code Black" as a means to confront the War of Light.

11. Scar finally reveals her true colors and attacks the other Guardians.

12. She bites one and then rips out his heart. She then absorbs it's essence and it crumbles to dust. Another Guardian attacks her, but she deflects the blast with Dark energy.

13. Meanwhile, black rings flood Oa and head towards the Vault.

14. A two page spread of the black rings getting J'onn, Katma, Ronnie(Firestorm 1), Aquaman, and others. Scar, is using the black puke to imprison the remaining Guardians.

15. Another two page shot of ALL the Dead GL's in their new Black Lantern uniforms. Guy Gardner, and Kyle see them, and Guy says "WHAT THE F**K"

16. Black Lantern J'onn confronts Hal and Barry and says they "Shouldn't be back."

17. In St. Roch, the Hawks finish their conversation just as Black Lanterns Ralph and Sue (Elongated Man & wife) attack them. 

18. Sue impales Hawkgirl and Ralph bludgeons Carter with his mace.

19. The Hawks fight bravely, but are killed. Hawkgirl from her wounds and Carter from Ralph ripping out his heart.

20. They too absorb the energies of the heart, which then raises their power rings level from 0.0 to 0.2. Apparently, that's how they recharge their rings.

21. Black Hand arrives at the dead bodies with Bruce's skull.

22. Two black rings emerge from the skull and "Carter Hall of Earth; Kendra Saunders of Earth, ---Rise."


Now my major Spoiler for the whole series + Batmans Return

Theres a reason Black Hand did not make Batman into a Zombie Lantern. I don't believe that the skull is Bruce Waynes. I think when Darkseid blasted Bruce with the Omega sanction he transferred Bruce into Anthro, or Adams body at prehistoric time which is touched on as a major plot point in Final Crisis, that the New Gods Manipulated the Human Race to become what they did by Metron introducing fire to them. Hence it was not the corpse of Bruce Wayne that Darkseid fried.

I think the Black Hand says the skull connects to all of them because it's the Skull of Adam, or the 1st Man of Earth, and from his dead skull Black hand can create more Black Lantern rings.

In the end Batman is in prehistoric times alive as shown at the end of Final Crisis.

Yeah I think Johns has found his niche doing something much more horror oriented. The brutality, death and gore worked on every level.

I am excited to see what it is that makes the BL's so evil because it definately wasn't in Elongated Mans nature to be so evil, and brutal. In fact previous to this series their ghosts had been helping Batman in the Outsiders.

Batmans return is going to be far fetched, but Nightwing is so good as Batman that I am patient. Aqualad (Tempest) goes to see Richard Grayson in Blackest Night, and the exchange is so good. Tempest tells Dick how it's weird because it like he's talking to the real Batman. Of course Dick gripes like an EMO dork how he never wanted to be Batman (I am so tired of that BTW) Tempest elaborates how he always wished to be like Aquaman, and leaves Grayson to grab the Trident and accept his destiny as king of Atlantis.

It's still sad to me that Wally, Kyle, Tempest, Donna, and Tim Drake have always jumped to fill the shoes if need be, but it's always Dick that gripes. To me Grayson would do this like a soldier, he shouldnt gripe like a soap opera star.

Review by Rokk's Comic Book Revolution

Synopsis: We begin with Black Hand digging up Bruce Wayne's grave. Black Hand holds Bruce's skull. The mysterious voice from the Black Lantern talks to Black Hand about how everyone must succumb to death. We cut to the main Black Lantern batter. Suddenly, thousands of black power rings explode from the Black Lantern battery. We cut back to Black Hand licking Bruce Wayne's skull. (Really? This character is such a joke.)

We zip forward to twenty four hours later in Coast City. The people are celebrating the day that Superman came back to life. It is a national holiday where people celebrate the good works of super heroes and the super heroes who have fallen in the line of duty as well as the innocent lives they have failed to save.

Hal narrates how brave people sought to re-populate Coast City after everyone said that no one would ever move to Coast City again. Hal gives the entire back-story of Coast City which I am not going to repeat once again.

We then see Hal streaking onto the scene with John Stewart, Guy, Kyle and a couple of Air Force fighter planes. Hal introduces himself and talks about how he is an officer in the Air Force and he is also an officer in the Green Lantern Corps. Hal introduces John, Guy and Kyle and gives a quick synopsis of each guy.

Hal narrates how death is an accepted possibility in for men in the military. And that Green Lanterns all know that their careers will end in death. That Green Lanterns don't live to retire. Hal says how death has surrounded him in his life. Hal's father died. Abin Sur died. Coast City was destroyed. Hal says that you never learn to live with death. It becomes a part of who you are. And your only choice is to keep playing or fold. Hal says that he never folds. (I believe that I am already getting tired of this theme of death.)

We see the Green Lanterns lighting up a monument honoring fallen heroes. The Lanterns inscribe "No Fear" at the base of the monument. Hal then gives the back-story on Katma Tui and how she was a Green Lantern who was close to John. That a Star Sapphire killed Katma Tui. That John made a mistake trying to prevent the destruction of Xanshi. That Kyle's girlfriend, Alex, was killed by Major Force and stuffed into a refrigerator. Another woman that Kyle loved, Jade, was also killed. Only Guy had a happy ending as Ice came back to life.

We see our Green Lanterns posing by the monument. John tells Hal that he wishes he could rebuild Xanshi the way that Coast City has been rebuilt. Hal says that he and John built Coast City together. (We built this city on rock n' roll! Thank you, Jefferson Starship!) Guy says that they rebuilt the entire Green Lantern Corps. Kyle says that they will keep the torch burning. The four Green Lanterns then take off in different directions. (Bored. I am getting bored.)

We cut to Smallville where Clark, Conner and Ma Kent are visiting Jonathan Kent's grave. Conner says that he should be the one who is dead and not Pa Kent. Ma tells Conner not to slouch. That Pa would want both Clark and Conner standing tall.

We zip to Pittsburgh where Professor Stein, Jason and Gen are visiting Ronnie Raymond's grave. Jason tells Gen that Ronnie was like a son to Stein. Stein comments how everyday he says a prayer for Ronnie. Jason wonders what it must have taken to get a man of science like Stein to pray. Gen then points out to Jason that the rain is making the flowers die.

We zip over to the Titans memorial in the Titans Tower. The Titans comment that they have taken Bart's statue down. Bart wishes that they could take all of the statues down.

We hop over to Avenus in Central City which is the hidden graveyard of the Rogues. The Rogues and Boomerang have gathered at Captain Boomerang's grave to get drunk and honor him.

We pop over to Chicago and see Booster Gold, Guy, Fire, Ice and Black Canary at Ted Kord's grave. Black Canary tells Booster if he has anything to say then he should say it now. Black Canary says that they have a lot of graves to visit today. We see the flower placed on Ted's grace beginning to die. (Oh Dios mio, how many variations of the same scene are we going to get?)

We slide to Valhalla Cemetery in Metropolis. There is a huge crowd of citizens and super heroes present to honor the dead super heroes. We see Atom Smasher standing in front of Al Pratt's grave. Damage has his back to Al's grave. Atom Smasher spits that Damage could at least face his father's grave. That Damage could at least pretend that he gave a d*mn.

Damage barks back that he was not turning his back on his father's grave. Instead, Damage was facing the graves of the Freedom Fighters. Damage said that he was part of the Freedom Fighters when they were all killed. That he saw them all die. That Damage's face was forever scarred in that battle. Damage spits that he can't face anyone anymore.

Damage barks back that he was not turning his back on his father's grave. Instead, Damage was facing the graves of the Freedom Fighters. Damage said that he was part of the Freedom Fighters when they were all killed. That he saw them all die. That Damage's face was forever scarred in that battle. Damage spits that he can't face anyone anymore.

We cut to Amnesty Bay where Mera and Tempest are visiting Aquaman's grave. Tempest believes that Aquaman should be buried in Atlantis in a great tomb and not here in dirt on the surface world. Mera retorts that Aquaman felt save here. That this is where Aquaman would want to be. Mera says that the Atlanteans are prejudiced and superstitious and they never accepted Aquaman because of his blonde hair and they never accepted Tempest because of his violet eyes.

We shift to the graveyard in Gotham City. Alfred arrives to place flowers on Bruce's grave. Alfred sees Bruce's grave dug up. Alfred is horrified and screams that he made a mistake.

We cut to the JLA's Hall of Justice. Hal narrates that after the ceremony at Valhalla Cemetery that he came to the Hall of Justice to meet Barry Allen. We see Hal and Barry in the lower levels of the Hall of Justice where they are storing the bodies of dead super villains.

Hal tells Barry that they have had to resort to storing the villains' bodies here because Nightwing uncovered an operation that was harvesting the super villains' bodies for re-use. Hal says that this is the type of sick and twisted things that they have had to deal with since Barry was lost to the Speed Force.

Barry asks Hal who else has died other than Batman, Martian Manhunter and Aquaman. Barry asks who else died while he was gone. Hal then fires up his power ring and shows Barry every single super hero who has died since Crisis on Infinite Earths. (Vibe!!! We officially have a Vibe sighting!!)

Barry reaches out to Firestorm and says "Ronnie." Barry then sees Ralph and Sue Dibny. Barry is horrified and cries out "Oh no. God, please no. Not them." Barry asks how they died. Hal tells Barry the story about Jean Loring killing Sue. Hal tells Barry about how Ralph died during the events of 52. (Thank god for the Vibe sighting. I probably would have fallen asleep by this point.)

We slide to Stonechat Museum. Hawkman is on the phone with Ray Palmer. Hawkman yells that he is not going with Ray. Ray tells Hawkman to hold the phone from his face so he can come over through the phone line. Hawkman says "No." Hawkman then punches the phone into pieces and crushes the handset.

Hawkgirl tells Hawkman to calm down. Hawkman barks that Ray wanted him to come with Ray to visit Jean Loring's grave. Hawkgirl says that this is not about Jean. That Ray needs closure. Hawkman says "He has it. Jean's dead." Hawkman says that unlike him and Hawkgirl that Jean will not be reincarnated in the next life.

Hawkman says that Jean destroyed a love that was as strong as the love that he and Hawkgirl are destined to have. Hawgirl is still resistant to her destiny of being Hawkman's love. Hawkman says this is difficult on him that Hawkgirl does not have the centuries of memories of the two of them together like Hawkman still possesses.

Hawkman says that Jean did something that in all his years with the JLA he never say anyone do. Hawkman says "She made the Atom feel small." We see Ray sitting with his head in his hands as he tries to dial through to Hawkman's disconnected phone. The Last Will and Testament of Jean Loring is on his desk.

We cut back to the Hall of Justice where Barry has finally stopped moving and actually sits down over the shock of the story about Sue and Ralph's deaths. Hal then says that Carol is still running Ferris Air, but that he and Carol are no longer together. Hal says that Carol is safe. We then see Carol as a Star Sapphire and battling Sinestro Corps members. (Yeah, still bored.)

Suddenly, Alfred calls and tells Hal and Barry that something terrible has happened. We then cut to Oa where the Guardians are meeting. The Guardians say that they have failed and that the War of Light has erupted. The Guardians say that Ganthet was correct. That the Blackest Night could not be prevented. That is can only be confronted. The Guardians decide to call a Code Black and recall all Green Lanterns back to Oa.

Scar then interjects that the Lanterns will never get their signal. Scar then lunges forward and chomps down on one of the Guardians. Scar then rips out the Guardian's heart. (Really? What is up with the cannibalism that we keep seeing in comic books recently? It just is not a big event until someone gets eaten! I wonder who tastes better, Ultimate Wasp or the Guardian?)

We cut to the Green Lanterns' Crypts. We see a horde of black power rings breaking into the crypts. The black power rings slide onto the fingers of the dead Green Lanterns in the crypts.

We then cut to the black power rings arriving on Earth to the graves of all the various dead super heroes including Martian Manhunter and Aquaman. We cut back to Oa and see all the dead Green Lanterns rising again as Black Lanterns.

We hop back to Bruce's graveyard where Hal and Barry are investigating what happened to Bruce's grave. Suddenly, zombie Martian Manhunter arrives on the scene and says that both Hal and Barry should not be alive. That they should both be dead.

We shift back to Hawkman and Hawkgirl arguing. Hawkgirl says that Hawkman is all that Ray has now and that Hawkman should call him. Hawkman comments that he guesses that Ray is all that he has now, too. We see someone from the shadows watching. Hawkman glows red and the mysterious person says "Rage." Hawkgirl glows pink and the mysterious voice says "Love."

Hawkman rages about why he should even talk to Hawkgirl. That Hawkgirl has not accepted their destiny and their love. Hawkgirl says that in each of their previous lives once they admitted their love for each other that they both would meet untimely deaths.

Hawkgirl says that she refuses to give up control over her life to destiny and curses. Hawkman says that he never wanted to force Hawkgirl to feel anything that she did not truly feel. Hawkgirl starts crying and says that Hawkman did not force anything. Hawkgirl says that he loves Hawkman.

Suddenly, Hawkgirl is stabbed through her gut. Hawkgirl collapses to the ground. We see zombie Ralph and Sue Dibny. Ralph and Sue then attack Hawkman. They proceed to beat the hell out of Hawkman. Hawkgirl says "I love you" and then dies. Hawkman then dies.

Black Hand appears on the scene and says that Hawkman and Hawkgirl will not escape death this time. We see two black power rings fly into the room. Hawkman and Hawkgirl become Black Lanterns. End of issue.
