Greetings @LanternCorps!

We’re reading through Blackest Night. The plan is to read 3 or 4 issues a week. Please avoid spoiling anything from issues beyond this week. If you missed last week, you can check it out here

The issues for this week are:

Feel free to use any, all, or none of the questions below as discussion starters.

  1. Did you have a favorite issue this week?
  2. Was anything surprising to see?
  3. Which Black Lantern(s) would you rather deal with, Rougues or Reverse Flash?

Blackest Night #4 was my favorite for week 12. Watching Barry take charge of what’s going on Earthside was awesome! :zap: :zap: :zap: Absolutely loved his dressing down and then building up of Ray and Mera. Then spreading the game plan the other defenders of Earth.

I also felt for Ray and his exchange with Damage. The horror he must have felt when Jean showed up and power levels hit 100%! :broken_heart:

Liked the JLA stories for the Doctor Light showdown. Kimiyo was so hot that she burned her own clothes off!!! :flushed:

Loved BN#4. So many amazing panels, everything coming together, hitting 100%, a plan finally starting to emerge, this happening:

Flash was a good issue. Outrunning the regeneration is an interesting idea. And Barry trying to suppress all the emotions gets me. Probably because of The Flash TV show, which is the only reason I know some of the characters mentioned.

JLA issues were pretty heavy. Even without being familiar with their backstories, the black lanterns were ruthless!

You’re right, they were heavy. Though it wasn’t written in, I can’t imagine what Zatanna had to do to put her father down.

My favorite story was Justice League of America. I just could not figure out how they were going to survive. Then Dr. Light burned them up, that was perfect. Having to pick who I would be afraid of most I would pick the old Black Lantern Rouges. I think that the Flashes can handle Black Lantern Reverse Flash in numbers alone, but Rouges vs Rouges will be tough.
