  • Atrocitus is introduced, and is absolutely ruthless, a terrific villain.

    Atrocitus makes his first appearance, he is awesome, there was a video of Tony Todd reciting the Red Lantern oath, so I expected him to voice the character, instead it's some other guy, I think it's the same person who voiced Martian Manhunter on Justice League, but I could be wrong, anyway, it doesn't really matter, because whoever does the voice is excellent. Atrocitus is really a menacing villain here, not only do we get to see him order people around and destroy an entire planet, we get to see him in action as well, fighting against Hal Jordan in a truly spectacular fight scene, the CG was a nice way to go, and this episode proves it. The music is epic, and there are some very sad moments in it, we're led to believe that an entire race, including children are killed at one point. What's weird is that this episode made me laugh, which is strange considering the more dramatic elements, it's great that they take a few seconds to break up the tension a bit with some funny moments, all involving Zillius Zox somehow. My favorite was seeing Hal Jordan throw Zox at Atrocitus and he just swats him away and we see him bounce all over the place, that was funny, and I haven't laughed at a DC show since Batman: The Brave and the Bold, so that was great. A few parts I didn't like, it seems Razer, or Razor is no longer a Red Lantern, already? Yeah, seems that way, he is captured by Hal and Killowog in the end, and I presume they're going to try and reform him, maybe, though that would be strange seeing how he killed a Green Lantern and destroyed an entire planet, yeah, Atrocitus made him do it, but he was still the one who pushed the button, again, Atrocitus or Zox would've ended up doing anyway so maybe there's hope for the guy yet. Also, Hal nearly kills Razer, or Razor, dang, I'll just look it up....okay, it's Razer, where was I? Oh, yeah, Hal nearly kills Razer by creating a massive power drill and almost drilling him in the throat, isn't that a little too extreme and savage? He doesn't do it, obviously, but still. Anyway, an excellent episode, and I'm psyched to see more, too bad we'll have to wait several months before new episodes are released, oh well.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Kilowog: Their power rings fire some sort of red energy tha...
      Sayd: They have rings?! Powered by what?
      Hal: Best guess--a huge desire to mash us all into pulp.

    • Sayd: Kilowog of Bolovax Vik, what is your recommendation?
      Kilowog: I say we high tail it back to Oa, cram the interceptor with as many GLs as she'll hold, ultra-warp back and kick their red butts until they're black and blue!
      Sayd: Despite the colorful terminology, a logical course of action.

    • Kilowog: Aya, what happened?
      Aya: Overload due to hairline crack in the ultra-warp coil. Most likely caused by last missile hit by enemy probe.
      Hal: For the record, she said most likely, not totally likely.

    • Hal: Can we form a construct and replace the defective part for the ride home?
      Aya: The construct would have to be an exact copy of the ultra-warp coil mechanism. And it's 56 moving parts to within a 0.8162 microns tolerance.
      Hal: Can either of you do that?
      Kilowog: I make hammers.

    • Hal: So was that your secret identity, engineer?
      Shyir Rev: Secret what?
      Kilowog: That's Hal's hang-up, that thing on his face, it's a mask. He wears it in case some earthling sneaks onto the interceptor--while in space, mind you--and goes, "Aha! The Green Lantern on my planet is Hal Jordan! I'm telling everyone!"
      Hal: Ha ha. Talk to me when your planets invent paparazzi and the 24-hour news cycle.

    • Atrocitus: I am Atrocitus, lord and master of the Red Lantern Corps. I am the one who will destroy the Guardians and all they stand for. I am wrath! I am hate! I am righteous vengeance!

    • Zilius Zox: Soon, your ring will be all that's left of you, Lantern!
      Hal: Settle down, demented beach ball.
