    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.

    I'm still hoping for John Blake.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    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.

    So far, every Earth 2 character has a connection to the Golden Age or the Silver Age Earth 2.

    I know, but I figure that on this world in which Bruce and Selina got together and there is no Batman anymore, who else would take over the cowl but John Blake?

    That's probably a good guess, especially given his color scheme. Fits nicely with the idea of bats being blind as well.

    Because John Blake has no connection to the Golden Age heroes.

    Dick Grayson
    Charles McNider
    Pieter Cross
    Charlie Bullock

    Not sure what you mean. I enjoy Earth 2 very much. It's one of the books I look forward to the most each month. I also enjoyed the character of John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises. But the character of Blake does not fit in with the premise of Earth 2.

    I wouldn't put it past Didio to somehow insert John Blake into the 52'Verse.

    Gotham PD could use a new face. Harvey Bullock can't work every case.
