Doctor Who: Blackest Night



Over the past week I've chosen a different incarnation of Doctor Who to represent each Lantern Corps (as seen in the pages of DC Comics' Green Lantern comic). If there's a fan-wank leaderboard I must be pretty near the top right about now.

What do you think? Do you agree with my choices? (I mean in regards to the Doctor Who/Lantern Corps stuff, obviously my overall life choices are wrong.)

Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

  1. I would have swapped War and Nine. Nine famously said he would prefer to be a "coward, any day" than a killer. War was literally born from a moment of rage and remorse, and he dedicated his existence to the eradication of his hated enemies, the Daleks. Otherwise, WOW. I was literally thinking of doing this exact crossover yesterday, and you nailed each of my picks perfectly. I'd also have had Two in Indigo, Four in Blue, Three in Green, Seven in Red, and Eleven in Orange.

    1. Thanks for the comment. :) My thinking with War and Nine was that War didn't seem to have any rage in him, just sorrow at the role forced on him in the name of "peace and sanity". Nine on the other hand had a lot of anger (as well as sorrow) as a result of what he was forced to do in the War, as we saw in the episode Dalek, for example. That scene you described where he chose to be "a coward any day" was, at least in my view, the conclusion of Nine' s character arc, where he found himself again and began to become the Doctor he wanted to be again. Until that moment I feel that rage was a big part of who he was.

      But, having said that, you could easily justify giving any of the Doctors any of the rings, that's what's so fun about this kind of thing. :)

  2. I also love to cross Doctor Who with lantern corps, and this is mostly accurate - ESPECIALLY Six. I do believe that Five and Eight are backwards. Five has been through the most horrible things, but never let it get to him. Eight, on the other hand, keeps going for the sake of others, despite pain, loss, and regret.

    1. I was listening to Dark Eyes when I made these, which starts with the Eighth Doctor literally going to the end of time to look for hope after Lucie Miller's death, so I had that in my mind when I chose which Doctors got which ring. But you may be right, maybe the Fifth would be better as Blue.
