***Update: Summary of the Footage Screened for the first time ever!****
Just got back from Comic-Con 2010‘s preview night from the Exhibition Hall where they previewed a ton of awesome stuff (check out our full photo gallery). One of my favorites was the replica of Abin Sur, the superhero from the DC Comics universe who will apparently be making an appearance in The Green Lantern. Sur is a fictional character who first appeared in the September-October 1959 issue of the comic. He was best known for being a member of the Green Lantern Corps and the predecessor of Green Lantern Hal Jordan, whom Abin Sur chose as his replacement.
Check out the explicit photos of his mangled corpse below…
According to Wikipedia, is looks like Sur might be coming back from the episode of “Blackest Night”….
… black power ring reaches Abin’s grave on Ungara and bids him to rise. Also, a flashback of Sur’s past reveals that he once had a sister named Arin, whom Sinestro was romancing before her death due to unknown circumstances. Indigo-1, leader of the Indigo Tribe also claimed to have met Abin before his death. Black Lantern Abin and Arin arrive on Korugar shortly after, ready to confront Sinestro and Hal Jordan. They are defeated by the combined efforts of Jordan, Sinestro, Indigo-1, and Carol Ferris, who join their lights together to destroy the black rings, rendering Abin and Arin’s corpses inert. Before dying, Abin states that he recognizes Indigo-1. In Blackest Night #5, the Indigo Tribe oath is revealed, and includes a line which mentions a lantern and Abin Sur’s name. Due to the Indigo Tribe oath being spoken in an unintelligible language, no further details are known
