Who’s ready for a little dip in a lake of blood?
If that was the only way to get control of yourself and not be lost to burning hot rage, would you take the plunge? That’s what the Red Lanterns have to do, because when the ring first replaces their blood and heart, they are given over to nothing but raw emotion.
We debuted the power battery, power ring, and group shot of the Red Lantern Corps for the DC HeroClix War of Light Organized Play event that starts in June on Wednesday, and now we have six individual character cards to show you.
And now, your Red Lantern highlights. The rage-filled corps was led during the War of Light by the aptly named Atrocitus, who is up for the “most obvious bad guy name” alongside other classic villains like Darth Sidious (short for INSIDIOUS, GET IT?!). The “recruit” card is based off the design of Red Lantern Skallox (who kind of looks like an ox skull…), and can get “enraged beyond reason,” the aforementioned state of being for new Reds.
This is the first Corps revealed to not have a Kyle Rayner in the mix, but it does have Guy Gardner (no individual card yet, sorry) and Hal Jordan. Bleez and Zilius Zox, who you may remember as feature players on the short-lived Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Laira round out the six cards we have here. Also featured in the group shot Wednesday are Spectre as a Red Lantern in a giant-sized figure, and the Red Entity known as The Butcher. We can’t wait for those, but for now here are the other four cards to tide you over.
And as for next week? Well, it’s time for a little mystery, as we Nok Lek through the next Corps.
