Way To Spoil The Surprise, D.C.!

As I do most Saturdays, I picked up my comics this morning and when I got home, sat down and read them. As I mentioned before, I'm looking forward to the Blackest Night event so read Green Lantern Corps #35 first.

I was reading through, enjoying the story when - just before the half way mark - I noticed an advertisement for the range of action figures based on the Blackest Night which featured Blue Lantern Saint Walker, Red Lantern Atrocitus, Alpha Lantern Boodikka and (if you want to read who else, you'll need to highlight the following) Black Lantern Earth-2 Superman!

Is it just me? Am I alone in not knowing that this character was going to appear as a Black Lantern? I'd heard rumours but had seen nothing confirmed and yet there he is, large as undeath.

Just kinda ruined the surprise a little for me.


  1. Wait, isn't he dead?!?

    Oh yes, I forgot, comic books.

  2. Actually the first pic of this figure was officially solicited months ago, but yes your complaint is still valid. Luckily, what makes a comic good isn't the surprises it delivers, right? right....?
