Blackest Night #6 was a mixed bag, but there were some definite highlights from the issue that helped make it worthwhile. However, what I want to discuss is how a splashpage of John Stewart being chased by an army of Black Lanterns could have possibly spoiled upcoming Green Lantern Corps issues. I've included the relevant image after the jump, but for those wondering, one of the people last seen alive in the image above is shown as a Black Lantern in the image.
Black Lantern Arisia?
I've circled the character in question above, but it looks like Green Lantern Corps member Arisia is set to die. Again. Or perhaps Nekron somehow reaches out to other characters that have "died" and turned them like he did Superman and the others in Blackest Night #5. Or maybe it's just a goof up by artist Ivan Reis.
What do you think? Does Arisia die in an upcoming issue of Green Lantern Corps? She seemed to have dealt with her family of Black Lanterns and come out no worse for wear. Perhaps in an attempt to stop Red Lantern Guy Gardner, Guy's rage gets the better of him and causes the death of Arisia? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
