Venditti Teases New Green Lantern Foe Relic

Venditt Teases New Green Lantern Foe Relic

Relic’s origin story will begin to be told in black & white variant covers across the “Green Lantern” family of titles from June through August.



Source: DC Blog Press Release

From a Press Release at  DC's The Source:

 

 

Last week, Green Lantern fans got a first look at the upcoming all-new villain, Relic.
 
 
 
 
Now we are learning that Relic’s origin story will begin to be told in the form of a series of black & white variant covers across all of the  Green Lantern  family of titles from June through August. Drawn by Rags Morales (Action Comics), these variant covers will all give clues to how Relic came to be, and will be collected – fully lettered, in color, and with additional new pages – in the series’ September issue.
 
“When you very first encounter him, he will be a fully formed menace, but you will get the backstory of how he got to be that way,” Green Lantern writer Robert Venditti revealed. “He’s a completely new character not based on any pre-existing character.”
 
As for the impact Relic will have on the Green Lantern universe? According to Venditti, he will “tie together every Lantern of every color that has ever appeared in any comic book ever.” Talk about a big bad!
 
For more from Venditti about Relic, check out MTV GEEK’s full interview with the writer.

Relic? Not "Horny-head Man With Tubes and Stuff?" DC is slipping on these character names.

Vaneta spoke with Venditti in more detail about this:

His enormous size gives him a proportionate level of strength, but he isn’t what I’d describe as being inherently super-powered. His weaponry and defenses are more technology oriented, and he’s coming after the Corps for a very specific reason. All his technology is geared toward fighting them.

Before he was a villain, Relic was a scientist

Between Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps, there’s going to be a status quo change for nearly every major member of the cast. I can’t go into what those will be, but we hope many of them will surprise people.

Vaneta has a new followup interview with Van Jensen about upcoming GLC events.

Highlights are:
- An attack from the shape-changing Durlans who will be one of the main villains that will be out there. And it's a bit of a new take on them. "Their entire culture is based on deceit. And so they're going to be coming after the Green Lanterns in a way that I don't think we've ever really seen before."
- Hal is going to be the leader of the Corps, and John Stewart is in charge of training.
- "Groups" of villains, who have not had a big presence in the New 52 but have a pretty long legacy of fighting with the Corps, are going to make a big resurgence. A good idea of what's to come will show up in Green Lantern Corps #21.
- Kilowog will be around, but in a very new role. One that's a particular challenge to him and something that is a really interesting development for that character, and has some nice humor to it as well. "So I don't want to spoil it, but it will be a lot of fun for long-time readers."

Concerning the internet rumor alleging that Green Lantern John Stewart was going to die, and that's why Fialkov left:
"We never considered killing John, and no one asked us to," Venditti told Newsarama

Isn't that the way? Nearly every single time.

Big Bang Theory really is a show about future super-villains.

"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

That's just a guy from downtown of most major North American cities. Hell Montreal is filled with them.
