This Just Happened: “Lights Out” Concludes!

By Alex Nagorski Friday, November 1st, 2013

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #2 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

Relic was right. The light had run out and the universe was truly in trouble. His goal to break through the Source Wall and refill the Reservoir for the Emotional Spectrum – the Light Source – was the only way to restore balance to the Universe. Except it wasn’t up to him to do it.

As it turned out, the combined power of the White Lantern and all the Entities was the key. Well, that plus Kyle Rayner needed to realize some very important lessons about what it means to be a White Lantern. And he barely made it back through the Source Wall alive!

The Universe has been granted a new beginning, and so has Kyle Rayner. What did Paalko see when he connected to Kyle Rayner? What can no one know about the other side of the Source Wall?

As for the future of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps post “Lights Out”?

“Hal has only been leader of the Green Lantern Corps for a short time, but a lot has happened,” writer Robert Venditti told COSMIC BOOK NEWS earlier this week. “Understandably, he’s feeling a little punch drunk, but the rest of the universe won’t be ringing the bell to allow him to gets his legs under him.  Aside from the battles they fought against Relic, the destruction of Oa, the loss of the Blue Lanterns, and the presumed death of the White Lantern, Hal now has to decide what the future of the Corps will be.  He has a new home in Mogo, a new Central Power Battery, and a plan, but whether any of that will make life easier for him remains to be seen.”

Below, take a look at the final page of GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #2, and sound off in the comments section about what’s in store for the series! Written Robert Venditti and illustrated by Sean Chen, GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #2 is available in stores now.
