And now the final Lantern Corps, the absence of light, the Blackness of Death. Yes, the Black Lantern Corps rises once more to harangue the other corps in the HeroClix War of Light, and they are out in force. After a few smaller corps, here we have a corps with two absolutely massive figures, plus one over-sized, plus the lantern, plus nine standard figures! Whew! We'll have a closer look at eight of those figures on Friday, but for now let's look at the Lantern and the Ring (and that big group shot above).

The Power Battery and Ring operate pretty much the same as the other colors in the emotional spectrum, though obviously with a "Death" modifier. The Black Lanterns, led by Nekron and his first recruit Black Hand, think of Death as simply the next step. Able to recruit from anyone who has died, the Black Lantern Corps tries to pull in recruits from those who their enemies have a strong emotional connection to. Once they activate a strong emotional response, they pull out the heart of that target and literally devour it. Talk about eating your emotions.
