Earlier today, artist Mitch Gerads and writer Joshua Williamson tweeted out this teaser image for a new cosmic mystery in the DC Universe:
Intriguing, right? Black Hand’s been out of the picture for a while, and Batman’s done with it after Death Metal, so it’s time for somebody new to take up the power of Blackest Night.
I already have my theory: we already know from Infinite Frontier #0 and solicits of the Infinite Frontier event this summer- written by Williamson- will feature Alan Scott in a central role. So who do we know related to that corner of Green Lantern cosmology, with established ties to the darkness of the DCU?
Answer: Alan’s darkness-channeling, often psychologically troubled son, Obsidian.
Calling it here first – Todd Rice is the new Black Lantern.
