Green Lantern Reveals the Horrific Fate of DC's Most Powerful Beings

Warning! Spoilers ahead for Green Lantern #4

In the latest issue of DC Comics' Green Lantern, the Green Lantern Corps has nearly been decimated after the complete destruction of their Central Power Battery, and this means a horrific fate for their Guardians of Oa. With only a few Lanterns left with working power rings, Green Lantern Jo Mullein has assumed command during the crisis, working with the United Planets to try and get to the bottom of who might have attacked Oa, and whether or not the Guardians can be saved after the devastating attack.

In prior issues of Green Lantern from writer Geoffrey Thorne, Tom Raney, and Marco Santucci, the Guardians of Oa had been hosting the galactic summit of the newly formed United Planets, featuring delegations from across the universe who were all seeking greater levels of cooperation and peace across the cosmos. However, as soon as the Guardians and their Green Lanterns were accepted into the United Planets, one of the Guardians was assassinated, followed later by an explosion of the Central Power Battery that caused nearly every single Green Lantern's power ring to become depleted of power, stranding and in some cases killing Lanterns all over the galaxy.

However, an equally peculiar and horrific fate has befallen the rest of the Guardians in Green Lantern #4, as they've all been frozen in a state of death. However, as the United Planets' Councillor Fel - a Fifth Level Intellect - reveals, the exact state of the Guardians is hard to determine, due to how entangled they were with the Central Power Battery on a quantum level. She also reveals that the Central Power Battery was not merely blown up. Had that happened, the Green Lanterns would still have varying degrees of charge left, and the Guardians might have been fine. Instead, Fel confirms that the Battery was deconstructed on the quantum level, which is what led to the Guardians dying in their frozen dying limbo state. The other terrifying option is that they're already dead and this is some sort of temporal lag.

However, Fel does confirm that there's still quite a few question marks that even she has, so perhaps there's a way for the Guardians to be saved down the line. However, the nature of the attack has also narrowed down the list of potential suspects, and the Yellow Lantern's Sinestro tops the list as the most likely culprit. As a result, the Teen Lantern Keli Quintela is enraged and is looking to take the fight Sinestro on his home turf of New Korugar.

While a conflict with the Yellow Lanterns seems pretty ill-advised, there's not much Jo was able to do before Keli shot off to confront Sinestro. In any case, it seems as though the Guardians' days might very well be numbered. Furthermore, if they really are dead, it's just going to make Jo Mullein's job to restore the Corps that much harder than it already is as DC's Green Lantern continues.
