Warning! Spoilers for DC vs. Vampires # 2

Coming up for DC vs. vampires showcases The Green Lantern with a terrifying display of his powers. Hal Jordan has already gone to the dark side, but this time could mean the end of the world.

As DC Universe meets the army of the living dead, the Justice League fights to protect humanity in the limited series, written by James Tynion IV and Matthew Rosenberg with the art of Otto Schmidt. Since the title falls outside of mainstream continuity, no one is safe, including star heroes like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. To add to the fun of the premise, everyone is on the vampire menu.

In a cover variant illustrated by Francesco Mattina for DC vs. Vampires # 2, the energy of Green Lantern Hal Jordan underlines his rage. Hal wears his armor made from the energy of the ring, making him a dangerous candidate for the vampire army. It seems that his ring allows him to hide in plain sight, as he feels the effects of a vampire bite. As he fights back, he can’t help but be overwhelmed by his new vampiric form. The cover looks like it came straight out of a horror movie, as Green Lantern transforms into an undead creature.

Considering the heroes featured in the limited series, Hal Jordan might be the biggest threat outside of Superman will become a vampire. Powered by his will, the ring has the potential to annihilate the entire human race. Although the League physically battles vampires, Hal will have to wage an internal battle. The Lantern will have to resist and defeat his own flesh to save Earth from the impending invasion. A series based solely on this concept of a Green Lantern fighting the urge to embrace his vampire destiny would be a compelling premise in itself. For DC against vampires, there is so much going on that it is just one problem.

If Hal is overwhelmed by his vampire side, he could end up becoming an antihero in the context of the series. Since his real superpower is his willpower, he could use his vampire abilities for good. Similar to Marvel’s Blade, Hal Jordan could be the answer to the vampire invasion of the DC Universe. The Justice League struggled to make progress in their war on monsters, but the The Green Lantern could play a central role in defeating them definitively.
