Brightest Day Promo

White Lanterns are Born in Brightest Day

I’ve been saying for months now that we would see a White Lantern Corps rise in the end of Blackest Night and seems I may have been right on the money now that DC has released a promo image for Brightest Day.

We saw the first glimpse at White Lanterns in Blackest Night #1 with Don Hall, Dove I, being at peace and again in the Blackest Night: Titans tie-in with Dove II, Dawn Granger – Dove is a White Lantern. While I’m some what relieved to see there will be an equally powerful team of White Lanterns to combat the Black Lanterns but I think the birth of the White Lanterns will be the rebirth of character aimlessly killed for dramatic effect during Blackest Night (See also most every DC B-list character ever).

Dove: White Lantern?

It seems the white light in Blackest Night may be connected to the Lord of Order’s avatar – Dove.

What Geoff Johns said about Dove:

“You’ll learn more about this as we go forward. But really it speaks to the nature of Don Hall. He can’t be desecrated by the likes of these things. He’s untouchable in death and at total peace more than any other being in the universe.”

While there probably won’t be a White Lantern or a Corps for that matter there definitely a white light in the universe which is expressed as peace.
