Holy carp! Manhunters! They look pretty sweet in that one picture.

Are there any outlines for this continuity? The Red Lanterns had enough members that they'd had to have been around much longer than the start of the series so why did the Guardians never notice them until they started killing GL's? And why weren't the Sapphire's (and most of the characters) more alarmed by Razer's appearance? And why is the green weakness to yellow back? Especially since they've seemed to make the Red Lantern's the main villains they have to kinda ram this weakness in awkwardly into a lot of episodes.

I would hardly call the yellow element showing up in 2 episodes as being awkwardly shoved into a lot of episodes. As for why it's there, it's a GL weakness and these shows are always a mix of old and new comics lore.

Not really, whatever's been revealed in show so far is what fans have to go on.

Plus, based on Hal and Kilowog's cluelessness, they were never informed about the Manhunters, the schism of some female Maltusians, nor all of the ring's weaknesses by the Guardians.

But surely even in Frontier Space, forming power batteries and rings and so on is gonna create enough attention for the Guardian's to notice. Although unless it is that they are deliberately holding back for some reason.

So they are just like 'ah yellow crystals are bad!' in a few episodes because they can.

Probably setting up for Sinestro and other Sinestro Corps in season 2...or would that be 3. Either way to me it's coming off as very obvious set up for something down the line.

Really? Sigh, I was happy they were using the Red Lantern's, something original for once.

Well this all still speculation but it would only make sense to use the GL's more recognizable foe. The Reds have this season and I can probably see them in the future. It's all too early to say for now right now.

The Sinestro Corps are only really recognisable to comic fans. And honestly as a huge GL fan I'm actually really bored of the whole colour wars thing, I wish they'd move onto something else already. It may still be colour wars but sentient Red Lanterns was at least a change of pace.
05-04-2012, 02:42 AM
Just because comic fans are the only ones who know isn't really a good reason not to use them. Also I think the Manhunters might be something to look forward to. Here's hoping for the Tattooed Man personally

It doesn't sound like you follow the news online. But if you don't care much for other Corps as villains, you may get your wish in season two (which is tentatively set to start airing fall 2012).

Wow, gonna be a wild episode. Won't be able to watch it til Sunday with free comic book day and other events going on.

Manhunters will make a nice change of pace.
And honestly no, I don't follow a lot of news admittedly since they normally mix spoilers in there with no warning and I like to discover it for myself.

Looking at the Krieg's Twitter and CN's schedule, guess there was a goof up and this Saturday's episode is called "Flight Club," not "Fight Club."

And who is that exactly ?
I remember a nemesis of Katar Hol named "The Byth", but probably no relation.
Really looking forward this episode !
Edit : haha, back to the prison planet of episode... 3, that's it ?
They really are reusing a lot of secondary characters...
05-11-2012, 08:37 PM
You're right. Byth was a Silver Age villain of Hawkman. He was the greatest thief on Thanagar. Always gave Hawkman the slip. I think in the modern age, he got rebooted as a corrupt military official or something.
