SDCC 2012 Tidbits: Green Lantern Guy Gardner Gets Origin Reboot Plus Bad Days Ahead


San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2012 continiues. With Friday’s DC Comics panels we learned a few interesting tidbits.

At the Justice League / Green Lantern panel we heard that:

    “Green Lantern Corps” #0 will tell the new origin of the New 52 Guy Gardner. Johns said writer Pete Tomasi gets the old school Guy because he himself is an old school writer. “He doesn’t even know how to use a computer,” Johns deadpanned. Bedard then talked about bring in some more “first string” people into “Green Lantern: New Guardians” with his issue #0 including Larfleeze and Carol Ferris, noting that the story will complete Kyle Rayner’s journey to master his emotions – a skill set that will serve him well when the Third Army arrives.

At the same panel it is also being reported that Geoff Johns teases the “fall of Guy Gardner” in the next few months.

Things getting bleak for Guy during The Third Army arc?
