DC Comics has a lot of additions and changes coming to their titles post Dark Nights: Metal. One very interesting addition DC Comics is ready to make is the introduction of another color to it’s spectrum of interstellar Lantern Corps.

The new color will not be introduced in one of the two Lantern titles published by DC Comics, but in Justice League #3 by Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez. In this book John Stewart will be transformed into an Ultraviolet Lantern.

There is not a lot of information about the new ring, but the description does say that the ring will be bringing out some “ultraviolet” tendencies. Unfortunately it looks like this violence will be directed at some of his Justice League teammates. Talking to CBR during the finale of Dark Nights: Metal, Snyder said that, “[Breaking the Source Wall] means new sectors for the Green Lanterns, new rules of physics for magic, new cosmic wonder for characters like Starfire who are exploratory in space. It’s a shattering of limitations.”

Snyder gives some reason why Stewart changes rings saying that, “John Stewart starts to realize that the Guardians have hidden things from him because of his skill set, what he’s supposed to do, he might have been a soldier for them in ways he didn’t realize.”

It will be interesting to see what causes this ring to appear as well as to choose John Stewart. Once again it looks like the Guardians have been up to no good. Check out the cover to Justice League #3 below as well as the solicitation for the book.

  • John Stewart: Ultraviolet Lantern? Believe it! Under the influence of the Ultraviolet Spectrum, John Stewart engages in some ultraviolence against his teammates Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Meanwhile, the rest of the League investigates the scene of the fallen Source Wall fragment, and encounters not only a horde of giant monsters, but a pair of longtime archenemies using stolen Atom technology to literally get under their skin. Best to stock up on Cortizone for that sort of itch! All this and…the Turtle? Yep.
