BLACKEST NIGHT IS OVER...WHAT IS BRIGHTEST DAY?
By Geoff Johns
How about that gatefold spread?
So you probably understand why we couldn't exactly talk about BRIGHTEST DAY in great detail until now, right? Before I get into BRIGHTEST DAY, I wanted to say thank you from all of us from me, Ivan Reis, Eddie Berganza and everyone else who worked on this series and the stories around it. Thank you for your trust and time. BLACKEST NIGHT was a labor of love by all involved and I couldn't be prouder of the work we did.
But how about that gatefold spread?
Aw yeah Ivan Reis!
Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Firestorm, Maxwell Lord, Captain Boomerang, Jade, the Reverse-Flash, Hawk, Osiris and... Deadman?
Twelve heroes and villains were resurrected by the white light. Some will call it a miracle and others a sign of the apocalypse, and though the exact reasons for their rebirths is a mystery, it won't be for long.
They're back for a reason.
Although they all have their own journeys ahead, they are connected by something and their exact mission will unfold throughout BRIGHTEST DAY. But while the truth behind their return and their ultimate destination lies within the BRIGHTEST DAY series itself and GREEN LANTERN, there are other books where you can follow these recently returned heroes to find out what life has in store for them and what they have in store for life.
In BRIGHTEST DAY, the whole cast will be seen with Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Firestorm and Deadman taking the lead as the truth behind their resurrections is discovered.
In GREEN LANTERN, the mysterious White Lantern will be the object of everyone's desires.
In THE FLASH, Captain Boomerang will deal with a bizarre change he believes is left over from the black ring that animated his corpse. And the Reverse-Flash won't be gone for long... but he'll appear somewhere else first.
In JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST, Maxwell Lord the most wanted man in America is hunted by the former members of Justice League International; Booster Gold, Fire, Ice and Captain Atom. Why not the Justice League of America? Max is tricky...
In JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, the exact nature of Jade's powers and their connection to the mythology of the Green Lantern Corps is unveiled.
In BIRDS OF PREY, Hawk will have to be balanced out by Dove..and Dove's connection to the white light will be revealed in BRIGHTEST DAY.
In TITANS, Osiris will be seen as a way to Black Adam and vice versa.
And finally, in GREEN ARROW #1... well... I've said enough. Let's let the pictures doing the talking.
It's a new dawn, but what tomorrow is like no one can say for sure. Except maybe Deadman... who is ironically the key to it all.
Some second chances work out and some don't.
See you in a few weeks!
