Blackest Night #3

I'd say things are looking pretty bleak for our heroes in Blackest Night. Really, we've seen the deck stacked against the good guys many times (most recently, of course, in Final Crisis). But I really don't think we've ever seen it this stacked.

What were seeing here is the heroes being completely overwhelmed. All evidence says that this menace is just too big. The good guys can knock down or take out one of the Black Lanterns... But so what? The most recent issue has shown us that you don't even have have had superpowers to be dangerous as a Black Lantern. And there are a lot more dead people on (or in) the Earth than there are alive...

Still, there's one thing that's been nagging at me. It's probably been the same way with you. What is Black Hand doing with the skull that everyone assumes belongs to Batman?

I think this is going to be a big key to the mystery. The identity of the owner of that skull is part of it, sure. But an even bigger question is this: why haven't they raised that person as a Black Lantern? Have they chosen not to? Or is it that they can't?

The revelations from Indigo in this one are in line with my, and a lot of people's white light theory, and ties into what's been going on in Blackest Night Titans. I do think that one of the revelations of Blackest Night is going to be that Batman is still alive or something.

I mean if he was sent back in time then whose skeleton did they bury? Because by this point even Batman can't keep his skeleton intact for that long.

I don't know WHAT to think about Batman's presummed skull...except that I'm sure there is going to be one heck of an explanation.

Oh, I agree entirely, Jake. I don't think it's really Batman's skull (unless loopy time travel is involved). But I still think that skull holds some importance to this whole thing...
