Wheels within wheels

I do believe that Mr. Johns and Mr. Tomassi are up to no good. Well...that's not quite right, in the end, I am sure that it will ALL be good. Nevertheless, let me just say that more correctly, they are up to their old tricks.

We all recall in the issues leading up to the Sinestro Corps War, that there had been all sorts of little clues and visual trickery placed their for our viewing pleasure. In particular, Dave Gibbons and Pat Gleason had been using those ominous glowing little yellow lights on Mogo for quite a while before it finally dawned on most of us that SOMEthing was going on. Frankly, I think that they are at it again.

Over on the Geoff Johns message boards (which are quite delightful and have FAR less crazy people than the DC boards) DrMouse mentioned that the Black Mercy seedlings released by Mongul just Happened to be in Sector 2261...which just Happens to be the same sector as Mogo and Bzzd. That can't be good. And of course, we all remember the issue of GLC, when Mogo used an asteroid to burn out the nasty little yellow fungus that was infecting him. The asteroid that just Happened to have these odd purple crystelline structures on it.

Poor Mogo. He could really use a break, and I don't think that it's going to be happening. I'm also highly suspicious of these new Black Mercy seedlings, that have been altered to use Fear instead of Hope. Because Hope as we all know now, belongs to a pair of certain tiny Blue Lanterns. I dont' think that the Mother Mercy critter just unleashed in the last Green Lantern Corps is necessarily going to be particularly pleased that Mongul has altered her babies modus operandi.

Of course I could be completely off base, and totally wrong. In which case, I will of course, ignore this completely. On the other hand, my smuggery may rise to alarming proportions.

I think you're probably on to something. After all, Mr. Johns HAS already shown that you can't discount ANY detail that crops up in the Green Lantern comics.

Yeah, they're pretty sneaky like that.

I do think that Geoff Johns is a lot more subtle about his clues than Bendis is, over at the Avengers. He's been beating us over the head for about a year now, with all the supposed Skrull clues, but how can it be a clue when he basically grabs us by the ears and says "Look, look! Green eyes on the baby MEANS something!"

On the other hand, perhaps I'm just being too cranky.
