DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers & Review: Superman Villain Brainiac’s & New 52 Lobo’s Fates Revealed In Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #12!

DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review for Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #12 follow!

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #12 opens with John Stewart, Guy Gardner and the GLC fighting alongside Sinestro’s daughter, and former Green Lantern, Soranik Natu the head of the Yellow Lantern Corps to free themselves from the clutches of the unlikely yet can’t-think-no-one-thought-of-this-sooner pairing of Orange Larfleeze and Superman villain Brainiac…

…collectors and hoarders. The GLC and Sinestro Corps are trying to save themselves and Tomar Tu’s people who are trapped as their city was bottled by Brainiac.

Then we get the splash page teams shot of the GLC and Sinestro Corps!

Larfleeze and his slave Brainiac, fuedled by the Orange Lantern energy, try to fight off the two corps…

…but they start going after and destroying Larfleeze’s collections. We do get a glimpse of what happened to New 52 doppleganger Lobo in DC Rebirth; the new look Lobo is part of Larfleeze’s collection while the classic Lobo is wreaking havoc in Justice League vs. Suicide Squad.

Enter Green Lantern Hal Jordan, White Lantern Kyle Rayner and rogue Guardians of Galaxy Ganthet and Sayd.

Then another poster ready shot of the Earth born Lanterns…

…as the combined teams continue working over Larfleeze’s collection to his dismay.

Larfleeze feels betrayed by Brainiac who he feels predicted this, but allowed it happen. So, Larfleeze kills Brainiac so he will be his slave like other Orange Lantern energy entities. They flee…

…while the next chapter of the Green Lantern Corps and Sinestro Corps relationship is written…

…partnership!

So…

While I didn’t expect Brainiac to die, I do like the possibilities it opens for him and Brainiac. That part of story seemed rushed though. The ending corps’ partnership was also a surprise. Solid story and art. 8 out of 10.
