The Death of a Certain Character

I was sure that someone was going to die during the War of the Green Lanterns story arc. I just didn't expect that Lantern to die. This is your last warning for spoilers, by the way.

So they went ahead and killed Mogo. Now, once upon a time Mogo was just another interesting character in the GL universe. But in recent years Mogo has been built up to be something important and integral. Mogo was the keeper of the rings and decided who would get them.

Where does that leave the Corps? Without Mogo, who decides where the rings go? Who picks the worthies to wield them?

I feel like this story is shaping up to be one of those tales that really does change things. After War of the Green Lanterns there is going to be a change to the status quo. There has to be. Too much has happened in this story to have no repercussions.

I'm excited to see what happens next.

I was quite flabberghasted when they went and offed Mogo. Who is going to send out the rings now? No less a personage than Ganthet has said that Mogo was essential to the Green Lantern Corps. So I guess, that they are up the creek without a green paddle...or something.

Unless...

Maybe they could shove Ion into him or something.

Mogo's been dead before, in the Green Lantern "Ghosts" Annual, along with Kilowog, Tomar-Re, and so forth. If nothing else, someone down the line will have him get better.

Good thing they're rebooting everything...
