In tandem with that Green Lanterns #9 preview, DC Comics also released their January 2017 solicitations. In it we find who is behind this Phantom Ring mess and perhaps inhabiting the ring too as part of the Green Lanterns #14 comic book solicitation?

It is a familiar name.

That’s right it’s Volthoom! Why is that name familiar? Well, he/it was the power within the power ring of the Earth 3 Crime Syndicate’s Green Lantern analogue called Power Ring.

During Forever Evil, Power Ring started out as Earth 3’s Harold Jordan.

He was killed by a Parallax’d Sinestro and the power ring found Prime Earth’s Jessica Cruz to become the new Power Ring. She is now a Green Lantern and one half of the Green Lanterns in this book along with Simon Baz.

However, if not Earth 3’s Volthoom, could it be the Prime Earth’s universe’s First Lantern Volthoom?

Who fancied himself a god?

So, there you have it. Frank Laminski will cause all kinds of havoc as the Phantom Lantern with Volthoom’s embodiment of the Phantom Ring created by Rami the Rogue Guardian of the Universe? However, which Volthoom is it? Could it be a new Rebirth’d Volthoom? Time will tell. I am stoked for this arc!
