The Brightest Day

Updated on July 20, 2012

Green Lantern's Brightest Day Event in DC Comics!

Hold Up! This information surrounds DC Comics and The Green Lantern. If you're not familiar with GL, start here!

This event also follows The Blackest Night. If you're unfamiliar with that epic adventure, start here!

The Brightest Day is an event, covering a 25-issue, bi-monthly release (including issue #0). It started in April 2010, following the conclusion of The Blackest Night, a dark prophecy surrounding The Green Lantern, The Green Lantern Corps, and The War of Light.

Plot: With the conclusion of The Blackest Night, the following heroes (and villains) have been resurrected: Aquaman, Captain Boomerang, Hawk, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Jade, Jason Rusch, Ronnie Raymond, Martian Manhunter, Maxwell Lord, Osiris, Professor Zoom, and Boston Brand (Deadman). The epic follows them and gives them quests, including choices to make, with the underlying theme of the White Entity choosing a champion to uphold its virtue.

SPOILER! And the White Entity Champion is... - The Swamp Thing?

Hey all, looks like the spoiler is out: The White Entity Champoin, for now, will be none other than Alec Holland, formerly known as Swamp Thing...and now (I guess) The White Lantern??

Cited Source is Bleeding Cool Comics.

Brightest Day News Update: Issue #24 Alert

The Release Date have been moved.

Recent information has come out from DC Comics that issue #24 will be release-delayed, and is rescheduled to hit the stands on April 27, 2011. This is unfortunate new, but it's also coupled with something good: It will be a 48-page release, making it twice the comic!

The Rebirths Project:

DC Comics is using The Brightest Day as a "reboot" event for Aquaman and others.

Cover Art for Brightest Day #23 - And some comments.

Yes, there's been an elemental aspiration to the Brightest Day. In case you haven't been following, that's Martian Manhunter in an "earthy" role, Aquaman as water, Hawkman and Hawkgirl as air, and Firestorm flaring as fire.

Brightest Day #22 - The Cover Art

Brightest Day #22

Brightest Day #22 is title "Firestorm vs. The Anti-Monitor". If you are not familiar with the Anti-Monitor, I suggest reading "DC: Crisis on Infinite Earths" event in DC Comics; it changed the entire playing field of superheroes.

To sum up the events, this story focuses on Ronnie Raymond completing the quest of the White Power Battery, accepting Jason into his matrix. Firestorm has returned!
