There’s a lot of excitement for the upcoming Scott Snyder run on Justice League, and today’s July solicitation announcements gave John Stewart fans something to really look forward to. Based on the issue description and cover for the third issue it appears that there’s another band of light in the emotional spectrum that can power a ring – ultraviolet light. I have to say – i didn’t see that one coming! 🙂
The issue description says, “Under the influence of the Ultraviolet Spectrum, John Stewart engages in some ultraviolence against his teammates Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman”, leading readers to assume that this might be a case where the energy source may be very hard to control. The artwork shows a new logo and what looks like body ink on John – even to the point that it looks like the ink makes up the ring itself.
Time will tell if this is a new status quo for John or if this is just a story point, but either way it looks like it’s going to be an interesting read.
