DC Comics has announced the return of its Blackest Night event, which will see the resurrection of many dead characters.
The event, which is set to begin in August, will see the return of characters who died during the original Blackest Night story arc. This will include Hal Jordan, who died in 2011’s Green Lantern #52.
“I’m really happy to be bringing Hal back,” said writer Robert Venditti. “He’s one of the most iconic characters in the DC Universe, and I think fans will really enjoy what we have planned for him.”
The Blackest Night event will also see the return of Black Hand, the villain who caused the first Blackest Night by using the power of the seven black rings.
“Black Hand is one of the most twisted and disturbing villains in the DC Universe,” said writer Geoff Johns. “He’s the one responsible for the resurrection of all those dead heroes and villains, and he’s not going to stop until he has control of the entire universe.”
Black Hand is set to play a major role in the event, and will be the focus of a new six-issue miniseries called Blackest Night: Black Hand.
The Blackest Night event was first launched in 2009, and saw the return of many deceased characters, including Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman.

What is the Blackest Night prophecy?
The Blackest Night prophecy is a dark prophecy that is said to be coming true. It is said that a great darkness will descend upon the world, and that the dead will rise up to claim it. This dark prophecy is said to be bringing death and destruction upon the world, and many believe that it is something that should be feared.
Is Blackest Night part of the new 52?
The DC Comics event Blackest Night is not a part of the New 52 reboot, though it may be set in the same universe.
When DC Comics relaunched their entire line of comics in 2011 as the New 52, they rebooted the continuity of their characters and storylines. This meant that any previously published stories were not canon, and that the characters existed in a new timeline where all of their stories were starting over from scratch.
Blackest Night was a crossover event that ran from October 2009 to March 2010. It was not part of the New 52 reboot, and took place in the pre-New 52 continuity. However, it is possible that it is set in the same universe as the New 52.
The events of Blackest Night are alluded to in the New 52 comic book series Justice League. In issue #5, the villain Lex Luthor visits a parallel universe and meets that universe’s version of the Justice League. This parallel universe is very similar to the pre-New 52 DC universe, including having a version of the Green Lantern Corps that exists in the same continuity as the Blackest Night storyline.
It is not confirmed whether or not Blackest Night is set in the same universe as the New 52. However, the fact that it is mentioned in Justice League suggests that it may be.
Does Blackest Night or brightest day come first?
There is much debate over which event, Blackest Night or Brightest Day, comes first in the DC Comics timeline. The two events are relatively closely spaced, with Brightest Day following only a year after the conclusion of Blackest Night. There are a few hints in the comics that suggest which event may come first, but nothing is explicitly stated.
One clue that may suggest that Blackest Night comes first is a scene early in the event in which Nekron, the embodiment of death, is released from his prison. He declares that he will now create a universe of death in which all life will be extinguished. This suggests that Nekron was already active prior to Brightest Day and that Brightest Day may have been created in response to his threat.
However, there are also clues that suggest that Brightest Day may come first. One is the fact that several characters who were killed during Blackest Night are brought back to life during Brightest Day. This suggests that Brightest Day may have been intended to undo the damage caused by Blackest Night.
Another clue is that Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern who is at the center of both events, is resurrected during Brightest Day. This suggests that Hal Jordan’s resurrection may be a key event that sets the stage for both Blackest Night and Brightest Day.
Ultimately, it is impossible to say for certain which event comes first. However, the clues that suggest each event may come first are compelling and it is interesting to consider the implications of each.
