-- Black Lantern Corps Oath



After the battle with the Sinestro Corps, Superman-Prime hurled the Anti-Monitor into space, who then crashed on an unknown planet and was encased within a Black Central Battery by an unknown being.[1]

After the female Guardian was scarred by the Anti-Monitor she became connected to the Guardian of Death - Nekron, Lord of the Unliving, as the poison of the wound spread and slowly killed her, making her vulnerable to the machinations of the Black. This Guardian would later become known as Scar. Scar from this point on would dedicate herself to death and the darkness. It began by tearing the Guardians apart from the inside out. Deep beneath Oa's surface Scar prophesied the coming of the Blackest Night with her Book of the Black. Meanwhile Nekron released a massive number of Black Lantern Rings into the universe headed for Earth and Oa. Both Scar and this Guardian then guided Black Hand in the murder of his family and his own suicide. After that Black Hand would be reborn as the Herald of the Black Lanterns and the Blackest Night began.

Black Lantern Rings are wielded by the deceased. The symbol on Black Power Rings is the same symbol used by Green Lantern super-villain Black Hand (a triangle pointing downwards, with five lines radiating upward from the base).[1] The black rings also symbolize a total absence of emotion and life. Black Lantern Ring-possessed sentients are driven by a need to take the hearts of those who will be most emotionally affected by their return, to use the power of the emotions of those hearts to bring about the return of Nekron.[2]


Former members

Note: While the spirits of the Dibnys roam on today, the bodies were resurected, when the Indigo Lanterns destroyed their bodies. Many other members have been destroyed, as they are a universal organization. Hayden and Kal-L died upon usage of the Medusa Mask to draw the black rings away from their corpses. Wildebeest, Omen, the second Hawk, Pantha, Dolphin and Tula all died in a massive white blast stemming from Dove. Scar died when the seven Corps leaders unleashed the power of their batteries upon her. Alexander Luthor of Earth-Three died when Superboy-Prime's emotions became too unstable for the black ring to control and exploded, taking out a cadre of Black Lanters with it. Vostok died when the Negative Spirit of Larry Trainor absorbed her Black Lantern-tainted version and entered her, detonating the corpse from within.




The closest thing that the Black Lantern Corps has to an Oath was the poem seen throughout a few of the various comics involved in the Blackest Night event. The poem maintains the same rhythm that the other oaths contain.

The Blackest Night Falls form the skies,
The darkness grows as all light dies,
We crave your hearts and your Demise
by my Black Hand-- --The Dead shall rise!
