Wizard Magazine just posted an online interview with Geoff Johns, the writer on the recently released "Green Lantern Special: Sinestro Corps". They asked him 5 Questions and got him to spill his beans about all kinds of stuff. Of course that means spoilers, which kinda sucked for me since I haven't read it yet... Anyhow, after the picture of our pink-skinned friend are the 5 questions and the spoilers. You have been warned.
1. What is Sinestro’s end goal?
The pink-skinned tyrant and his band of sociopaths seem content with simply instilling fear across the cosmos, but Johns insists they’ve only scratched the surface: “Right now, [their goal] appears to be terrorizing the universe and destroying the Green Lantern Corps, but there’s more to it than that.”
2. Can Kyle Rayner be redeemed?
The former Ion has gone the way of Hal Jordan and been infected by Parallax, but can the “Torchbearer” follow in his predecessor’s footsteps and be reborn as a hero?
“That depends on who in the Green Lantern Corps you ask,” Johns teased cryptically.
3. How is the Anti-Monitor still alive?
Seriously, the Sinestro Corps’ twisted take on a Guardian died like a dozen times in the classic 1985 maxiseries Crisis on Infinite Earths—what gives?
“When the multiverse was reborn at the end of 52, so were some other things that were connected to it,” explained Johns.
4. What roles do Cyborg Superman and Superboy-Prime play?
We’re almost afraid to ask…
“Cyborg Superman has a very clear-cut and selfish goal that will be explored more in a one-shot by [writer] Alan Burnett,” said Johns. “Superboy-Prime is out and he’s happy and he’s got a big ol’ smile on his face—it should be a lot of fun.”
5. Will there be casualties?
“There will be casualties because it’s a war,” Johns noted. “But it’s not about the casualties.”
I'll have more to say about this sometime tomorrow when I post my June 27th Release Reviews, but until then check out the Written World blog with her original guesses as to the fate of Kyle Rayner and then her reaction yesterday. Between this and World War Hulk, I am ging to be in green overload by Christmas time.
