All will be well!
The Blue Lantern Corps. Created at the tail end of the Sinestro Corps War crossover at DC Comics, the Blue Lanterns were the most direct offshoot of the Green Lantern Corps – they even had their own Guardians of the Universe who created their power battery, letting them harness the blue light of hope.
We debuted the power battery, power ring, and group shot of the Blue Lantern Corps for the DC HeroClix War of Light Organized Play event that starts in June on Wednesday, and now we have seven individual character cards to show you.
Next week, you’ll meet a Corps that we can’t tell you about right meow, but it should be an atrociously fun reveal.
Today, we look to the Blue Lanterns for hope, and while the entity Adara was seen in the group shot, sorry, we don’t have that individual card here yet.
Interestingly, this is the first reveal where we don’t have the general “Corps Recruit” card, either – perhaps that’s because the corps members we do have to show off are so exciting and high profile that WizKids couldn’t wait to get them in front of you. Like Sinestro, this corps’ de facto leader Saint Walker gets the Blue Lantern Oath as his power set, with each ability named after another line of the Oath: “In fearful day, in raging night, with strong hearts full, our souls ignite, when all seems lost, in the war of light, look to the stars, for hope burns bright!” The Blue Lantern Oath is unique in that it directly references many of the other corps, in order, it mentions: Sinestro, Red Lanterns, Star Sapphire, Indigo.
Kyle Rayner, who we’ve already seen in Green and Yellow, shows up here, as well. As the current White Lantern, Kyle has actually mastered every color of the spectrum in the current DC Comics, and can access each emotion (and its corresponding powers) on the fly. Joining him in a doubled up figure is Hal Jordan, who wielded a blue and green ring side-by-side as seen here. Ganthet, the former Green Guardian who founded the Blue Lantern Corps, gets his own figure, with some great support abilities. Finally, Brother Hymn, Sister Sercy, and the elephantine Brother Warth round out the group.
Check out the rest of the Blue Lantern Corps below, and tune in next week for a reveal that we promise won’t require you to bathe in a lake of blood in order to contain your excitement (okay, we’re just giving it away now…)
