I picked this up on a whim, so forgive me for asking this question if it was explained more clearly elsewhere:
Is the Third Army just in existence to wipe out the Lantern Corps, or is it to turn everybody in the universe into a mouthless zombie with no will, by the process of assimilation?
I'm trying to not be hard on Johns, because everyone goes through slumps. But seriously. If the answer to either of those questions is "yes," and obviously there is, then what is the difference between this and Blackest Night? Mindless Zombie vs. Dead Zombie?
I realize that Johns is basically saying the Guardians have lost their damn minds. But I hate "collective insanity," and if they're not insane, the Guardians know damn well that the universe is a big freaking place and that this plan is ridiculous.
*Sniff, sniff* "Damn it, Diana...If I'd known they would trade us in for a JT Krul-written Captain Atom and "The Savage Hawkman," I'd have let Superboy-Prime destroy all reality.""Superman flies and is really strong...what the fuck else do you need to know?!"
