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.

For the dark things cannot stand the light,
The light of the Green Lantern!”
