Brightest Day #15 [2010]


BRIGHTEST DAY #15

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MANHUNTER FROM MARS?

The Brightest Day maxi-series follows 12 resurrected characters from the Blackest Night event. The entity within the White Lantern reveals that it is dying and a replacement must be chosen and each of the 12 have returned to protect Earth until the arrival of its new protector.
Series co-writer Geoff Johns explains that this series is about second chances and some will work out while others will not. The various subplots within Brightest Day will intertwine with one another and present an overall comprehensive story. During the San Diego Comic-Con, Johns announced there will be a White Lantern oath introduced within Brightest Day and added “when the White Ring creates a construct, it’s there forever.”
