No it couldn't have, since Hal did not have a charged ring at that point.

Right, I had forgotten that. So, back to my original hypothesis that the War of the Green Lanterns arc takes place after Hal leaves the League in the new 52.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

According to this wikipedia entry for "War of the Green Lanterns" it was published March 2011- August 2011...which as I said in my previous post, was the last major GL arc that took place in the pre-New 52 DCU.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_Green_Lanterns


Now I haven't been reading GL during the New 52 but wasn't this meant to be set up for "Green Lantern" and the whole pairing with Sinestro?

As for the timeline...all of GL's continuity was carried over into the New 52...but Rao if I know where it is all supposed to fit over the five years or what not.

Yes, GL #1 starts off after the war with Hal living on earth without his ring and Sinestro going to him for help. Thus far, Hal has only had a pseudo ring that was created for him by Sinestro, but I have only read up to issue #16.

Have you read the Indigo arc yet? I ask because that involved a change to Hal's ring, and I'd be glad to put that sort of thing in spoiler code if you'd prefer. I'm just not entirely sure it would be considered such or not.

Yeah, Hal got a ring separate from Sinestro's there, but had his encounter with Black Hand immediately after that, leading to where he is now. There's not time any way you swing it. There was no time between Brightest Day and War of the Green Lanterns, either. The storyline with Hal hunting the entities led directly in to WotGL. Unless Justice League's second arc took place directly after Blackest Night, which it really couldn't have neatly, we're just going to have to accept screwed continuity for Green Lantern. It wouldn't be the first time that the New 52 has asked us to accept that.

Which is why I'm more than happy to say: Fuck continuity. Just tell good stories.

Well, the spoiler warning's in the thread title. One needs to read with caution.

Hal didn't get a new ring IIRC, rather the power dynamic between the master ring and its construct was transferred--which is why Simon has a ring with a personality disorder.

You make it seem as simple as accidentally wandering into the wrong bathroom.

Might be Charles McNider or Pieter Cross. Looks like his mask has lenses and he's shooting blackout bombs from his gun.
