Shouldn't the new issue of Blackest Night come out on the winter solstice? Well, I don't schedule the damn things...

Use your willpower to enlarge! Or click them. Not my job to tell you what to do...
Black Hand was one of the first DC Infinite Heroes figures on the shelves, and well before Blackest Night started building up a head of steam; so I believe he was a bit of a pegwarmer. I got mine on the cheap from Big Bad Toy Store, and so could you, if you had a hankerin' to. Black Hand may also be found in some multipacks, and I think you could get a John Stewart DCIH in a six-pack: the one above is from the Justice League cartoon and a Subway kids' meal.

Of course, Blackest Night #6 is about the only game in town today, as far as new comics go. I've read a couple issues, and while I'm not hating it; I'm not pounding down the doors (or hitting the torrent sites...) for it, either. I do hope the rumors and guesswork about the conclusion--Hal Jordan unifies the various emotional spectrums into some kind of White Lantern, which is a really unfortunate name, and defeats Nekron, Black Hand, and/or Death itself with the shining power of his awesomeness--are wrong, since they sound kind of predictable and dumb.

I'd much prefer Hal fight the good fight, with every ounce of his will and determination, but only as a delaying action or diversion. Hal outsmarts them, putting the big bad in position for, I don't know, Sinestro or Larfleeze or Mera to deliver the big finish. (I do like the bigger roles Mera and the Atom have had so far.) But, as hinted in the strip, this series has been pretty straightforward in its Hal-worship, so we'll see.

I'm also especially glad that I recently got my Manhunter (Goodwin/Simonson version) and Creeper figures from DC Direct, since they appear to be going into a Blackest Night frenzy. Well, it's no worse than the Marvel Zombie figures of a year or two back, I guess; so if it sells more power to them. But unless some get clearanced down the line, I doubt I'll end up with any. Or many. I'm just being selfish, since more Blackest Night waves may mean less of other figures; but between DC Direct and DC Universe Classics, I have most of my DC character wishlist, and some I hadn't realized I had wanted. I'll have to give some thought to who I still want to see in plastic, if DCUC makes it to wave 42 or so...

We will have another "The End" post later this morning: a green one, but not GL.

If the villain is so incompetent that he can be outsmarted by Hal Jordan, then this whole series will be pretty much worthless.

This is SO fabulous. You've captured the voice of Guy perfectly! Although I do have to say,that's one hideous action figure.

And the "reboot" when Hal is kicking Black Hand is a hoot.

Randy,
See, I thought about that, but it's not like Hal's a moron: he was a test pilot, and he's a pretty quick thinker...while being kinda thoughtless, yeah.

Sally,
Thanks! That's my only Guy figure, sadly; in tiny scale. Although, I would bet the rent on DC Direct doing a Red Lantern Guy. Even if he's only a Red Lantern for twenty minutes...

If they come out with a Red Lantern Guy, I know that I'll be getting one.

I remember Black Hand, he was the most representative figure from Dc Comic for a long, long time. However over the years he started to lose popularity.
