Green Lantern Corps #11

Well, last issue, John was all mopey, and resigned, and marty-ish, and against his will, Guy went and busted him out of jail, before the Alpha Lanterns could execute him...for basically, saving the Central Battery and all of their well-rounded asses.

Alpha Lanterns are just SO annoying!

The Guardians who set up this whole situation, are sitting back, and watching the whole thing unfold and probably laughing their evil little blue NOT well-rounded butts off.  The Alphas are running amok, and capturing and TORTURING the rest of the Green Lanterns, for being upset with this kind of treatment.  Well...ONE Alpha, Varix isn't particularly happy about what is going on, but sheesh, when did Boodikka turn into such a little Nazi?  She's even ordering Salaak around...and he's not particularly happy about it.

So, the rest of the Corps is fighting the Alphas, who are trying to find Guy and John, and go zooming out into space only to discover that they were actually chasing a couple of constructs, which was pretty clever of Guy, but pretty stupid of the Alphas.  They have actually snuck into the underground caverns and tunnels of Oa, which they discovered back during the previous War of the Green Lanterns...not to be confused with the CURRENT War of the Green Lanterns. 

Eventually, John wakes up, and promptly punches Guy, which he takes surprisingly well, all things considered.  After all, he DID punch John into unconciousness, but only to save his life.  John actually admits that he's grateful that Guy DID bust him out, although he's not thrilled about all the lives being put in danger.  They decide that if there is any place that they can find something to help them against the Alphas, it would be down here, the burial site of all the Guardians mistakes.  Interestingly enough, they do find that all of the new rings, are just buzzing around aimlessly...not going out and looking for new recruits, which of course was Mogo's function.  However, since I'm pretty sure that the Guardians could have solved that little problem, my guess would be that they don't WANT any new Lanterns...since they are actively trying to get rid of the ones that they already have. 

God, I hate the Guardians!

Anyhoo, Guy and John find the psions, the manhunters, and more of the Alpha lantern parts, and have themselves a find old time cobbling up an Anti-Alpha weapon.  In the meantime, Boodikka is gleefully torturing Kilowog into giving up Guy and John, which he can't actually do since he doesn't know where they are, but wouldn't do anyway...and Varix points out that the Alphas are doing exactly what they accused John of doing...but she won't listen.

Then Guy and John show up with their own Alpha-Hunting Manhunters, and all hell breaks loose.  It's Green Lanterns vs Alphas, and Salaak tells them all to engage the Alphas.  Meanwhile, the Guardians continue to sit around and munch their popcorn and watch the whole thing unfold.  The Alphas are demolishing the Manhunter thingies, and even capture Guy and John, and blow up the doors to the sciencells...when all of the leftover pieces of Manhunter/Alpha/psion parts start to combine into one huge hideous SUPER Manhunter thingie!

OK, I'm not reading the Green Lantern books right now, but from the summaries I've read, I've got a really stupid question:

If the Guardians want to get rid of the Green Lantern Corps, why don't they just get rid of it? Can't they just deactivate the rings and turn off the battery?

That is a question that I've been wondering about myself, Snell. If the Guardians called the Corps together and said Thanks, but you can all go home now, what could they do? That's precisely what they did with Hal after all.

This whole pitting them against each other and plotting, is obviously because the Guardians are not only omnipotent...but real jerks.

I just love Salaak. Lot of people don't like him, but I've always adored him somehow.

Looking forward to the destruction of the manhunter ...erh...mutant...wibbly wobbly... thing.

Salaak, is a curmudgeon's curmudgeon. I too am inexplicably fond of him.
