Green Lantern’s Light Shines Bright Through DC’s Multiverse
Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, enters DC’s Infinite Frontier

With Future State currently offering a thrilling glimpse of the near and far futures of DC’s heroes and villains, fans can’t help but wonder what’s next, and the status of the current DC Universe. That era starts in a big way on March 2 with Infinite Frontier # 0 , a 64-page one-shot from some of DC’s most innovative creators—setting the stage for new storylines, surprises, and mysteries unfolding over this year and beyond.

One of the issue’s stories features Green Lantern Alan Scott, and his children Jade and Obsidian, by James Tynion IV and Stephen Byrne. It’s a story that’s been decades in the making—Alan Scott debuted in the 1940s All American Comics #16—and will show Alan in a new light and entering a new era of his superhero, and personal, life.

Check out DC’s Infinite Frontier #0 tomorrow to find out what Alan Scott has to say to Jade and Obsidian! For insights into the story directly from James Tynion IV, head on over to Newsarama for an interview (with spoilers—or wait till tomorrow if you want to read it for yourself) about how the story was created and what it means to James to have the honor of telling this story about DC’s original Green Lantern with artist Stephen Byrne.

“…and I shall shed my light over dark evil.
For the dark things cannot stand the light,
The light of the Green Lantern!”

Alan Scott


Prior to today, I was already giddy over the forthcoming/rumored JSA goodness, but IF #0 ratcheted up my excitement to 11.


Awesome™:+1: can’t wait to read this.


Agreed , looking forward to this.




All over it :00_lc_green_lantern1:


I picked up Infinite Frontier #0 today and made an involuntary, audible sound of joy when I picked it up off the table. I will not read it until July or August once I’ve been able to read all of Future State here on DCUI but I wanted a hard copy of the official launch of a new era in DC Comics and have examined the cover with childlike joy and great scrutiny.


He is the best Green Lantern.

But the uniform… come on… definitely improved. The new oath is better too. That said, I always like his appearances, so I’m down for some more.


Thr old uniform invokes Christmas. That makes it objectively the best.

You can’t just declare objectivity! Are you Batman? :sweat_smile:

Of course I am Batman. I came out of retirement to save Gotham, and that turned into a battle with President Reagan for control of the criminal overworld. My life is weird.

You age well. Though your brooding just gets darker with the years.
