HeroClix WAR OF LIGHT: BLUE LANTERN CORPS Revealed
The Blue Lantern Corps in HeroClix: War of Light
All will be well!
That's right, it's the Corps everyone was hoping for in the HeroClix War of Light, the Blue Lanterns are here!
As announced in January, Wizkids is introducing DC HeroClix: War of Light, a six-month storyline Organized Play program starting in June 2014. See Wizkids site for more on the OP program, or click here for a HeroClix store locator to find participating stores near you!
The Blue Lantern Corps are the ultimate support squad of the Emotional Spectrum. When just one Blue Lantern is around, any Green Lanterns in the immediate vicinity gain a power boost - not just to 100%, but well beyond it.
Likewise, Blue Lanterns are a neutralizer of another color, the Red Lanterns of Rage. When Red Lanterns take their ring, it actually replaces the function of their heart, pumping pure rage through their veins; however, the Blue light can expel rage and "cure" a Red Lantern.
The Blue Lantern Corps, of course, has not faired very well in the current DC Comics continuity - their planet was destroyed, their power battery annihilated, and oh yeah, all but one member brutally murdered.
So yeah, not the best year for Hope in the DC Universe. But they're at full strength in the War Of Light and ready to lend a helping hand to the Greens and the forces of justice. We'll be back Friday with the individual corps members, but you can see some feature members in the group shot above. Particularly, it seems we're three for three on Kyle Rayners, and the Blue Entity is present as well.
