IGN Comics posted solicits for Blackest Night related comics in December and the above image accompanied the Green Lantern Corps listing. Cover images are known to lie and we've even seen Hal Jordan as just about every corps member before, so it's not unprecedented, but it's hard not to imagine what could set off Guy's rage that doesn't involve the death (again) of his girlfriend Ice. However, there's more to this Guy Gardner Blackest Night stuff than a simple solicit. Hit the jump to find out more.
Another, lesser referenced Guy Gardner Blackest Night image is from an issue of Booster Gold #2, which just so happened to be written by Geoff Johns and featured the above image. Could this Red Lantern Guy be the "instrumental" role he plays in Blackest Night?
Seems likely that whatever role Guy plays in Blackest Night, his stint as a Red Lantern will more than likely be temporary at best. I'm tempted to believe it has something to do with Ice dying, but she'd be on Earth at this point and it would be hard for Guy to confirm her death to push him over the edge like this. Guy has always been kind of a hot head though, so maybe, much like his 'rage' in GLC #39, he just gets emotional over seeing his fellow Green Lanterns back as Black Lanterns. I doubt any one death from anyone but Kyle at this point would be enough to push him into the rage territory, so I'd rule out any deaths being the cause.
What do you think? Is this just a temporary one or two issue change up like it was with Hal? Fake out cover? Something more important, as hinted at in the Booster Gold #2 scan?
