Rise of the Green Lantern Merch part 2

By Chris Troy

52 is a pretty significant number to the DC Universe. Post-“Infinite Crisis” (by Geoff Johns and ton of talented artists), there were 52 different universes established. Then there was the follow up mini-series to IC titled “52“, which was a 52 weekly issue mini series, also written by Johns, as well as a ton of other awesome writers and a bunch of talented artists. They’ll be 52 number 1 comics when the DC relaunches this September. And to bring things full circle, last weekend’s “Green Lantern” film debuted at 52 million dollars, which sounds good, as it was the  #1 movie in America, until you realize that the budget and advertising probably cost Warner Bros. about $300 mil.

The Green Lantern uses this ring to fight “Darkness” as part of an intergalactic peace keeping force from the planet Oa. I guess the economy on Oa is so bad they couldn’t afford consonants.

Way back in ancient times- the 1960s and 70s- an ex-Green Lantern named Sinestro was kicked out of our universe for bad tipping and found himself in an anti-matter universe. There he was given a yellow power ring, a useful weapon against his hated ex-bosses the Green Lanterns because of that squad’s unique flaw of being unable to affect the color yellow.
