Update 6 Feb 9: The final figure is of the Amazon Warrior in her love-fueled form. Wonder Woman was invited to the Star Sapphires, the corps of the violet light, because of her consumate love for the entire world. She rounds out the Deputy Lanterns, and has already clashed with Mera more than once during Blackest Night, providing an interesting rivalry that has the potential to be a real mentorship. Star Sapphire Wonder Woman's official WizKids description follows, and click through the gallery for all the side and back views provided for every single character:The final DC HeroClix Blackest Night preview is the most powerful one of them all!
Though Wonder Woman has proven herself a hero time and again in battle, the message she always seeks to spread in the mortal world is one of peace, equality, and love. During the Blackest Night, Wonder Woman’s earlier death and resurrection by the Greek gods opened her to the influence of Nekron and the Black Lanterns – but her immense love for the planet Earth and all its people allowed her to be saved by accepting a violet power ring and joining the Star Sapphires.Update 5 Feb 8: Nok klok klek. The smallest member of the Deputy Lanterns carries what may be the largest emotional power, Compassion's indigo light. Ray Palmer, The Atom is now a member of the corps that channels the energy of every other corps, and has, according to their leader, the hardest emotion and energy of its' own to harness. Indigo Tribe Atom's official WizKids description follows: A stalwart member of the Justice League, Ray Palmer’s life was torn apart when he discovered that his love Jean Loring was a murderer. Even after taking a pilgrimage into the multiverse in search of a new purpose, the Atom found he still felt empathy for Loring and all those who had brought evil upon the innocent. In the rise of the Blackest Night, the Atom’s rare compassion allowed him to join the Indigo Tribe and wield the power of their light. Update 4 Feb 5: "All Will Be Well." That's become the Blue Lantern Corps' motto, and has already been uttered by Barry Allen, the Flash, since gaining the blue ring of Hope. ICv2 got the first look at this one a couple hours ago, and if you click here, you can see his full character card and dial. Official description for Barry Allen, the Blue Lantern Flash follows: The Fastest Man Alive inspired many worlds and universes when he sacrificed himself to save them all, and had risen to near sainthood by the time he was suddenly reborn. As he struggled to uncover the secrets behind his own return, the Earth was plunged into the Blackest Night. The Flash found the hope he inspired in others made him worthy to join the Blue Lantern Corps, and that his rebirth might hold one of the secrets to bringing the Blackest Night to an end. Update 3 Feb 4: Jonathan Crane, you have the ability to instill great Fear! It's the Scarecrow, in easily the most natural choice of all the Deputy Lanterns. The gallery has all the angles, and the official description follows: SCARECROW
Though his fear toxins gave him the ability to instill fear in nearly everyone, long exposure to the chemicals made the Scarecrow himself unable to feel terror–except when he was pursued by Batman. In the wake of the Dark Knight’s death, the Scarecrow was on the brink of despair–until in the Blackest Night the Scarecrow found a new purpose when he was given a yellow power ring and a place in the Sinestro Corps!Update 2 Feb 3: Next up is Orange Lantern Lex Luthor. The greediest guy on Earth, who as he said "wants it all" now has the power ring to help him achieve that goal! Click through for every angle on Lex and Mera, and a back view of Hal! WizKids description for Lex Luthor follows: DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game Lex Luthor redefines “power suit.”
Since childhood, Lex Luthor refused to let anything stand between him and what he desired. Though born to wealth and status, Luthor wanted always wanted more, building a path to power paved with suspicions, accusations, and corpses. In the Blackest Night, Luthor refused to aid past allies and strived only to save himself and what belonged to him–proving himself the perfect candidate for a greed-fueled orange power ring!Update 1 Feb 2: We'll be bringing you new images of the other characters all week long. The next character, after Hal's Green Lantern, is Red Lantern Mera! Here's the description WizKids provided: Queen of Atlantis and wife to Aquaman, Mera rallied her people in the wake of a planetwide crisis and became the leader of a rebel army determined to take vengeance for the destruction of Atlantis and the death of Aquaman. After the battle was won, she agreed to have the body of Aquaman moved to Atlantis...only to find he had risen from the grave as a Black Lantern. The desecration of the man she loved ignited a new fury in Mera, leading her to the front lines of the battle against the Black Lanterns and the Blackest Night…and earning her a place in the rage-powered Red Lantern Corps!
