    Default Questions about the Indigo Tribe

    Spoilers for recent issues of Green Lantern.

    Okay, if the point of the indigo's is to take the most hardened criminals that feel absolutely no remorse, and change them into kind, moral people, then why did the Indigo ring choose who it chose in Blackest Night? Really, Ray is a hardened criminal?

    And besides, I thought the point of the rings was to go to those who caused or felt the emotion that corresponded with the color. Those who overcame fear, green; those who caused fear, yellow, and etc.

    I am completely confused here.

    I had a similar thought about Ray during Blackest Night. Only thing I can figure is that since it was Ganthet who caused the rings to duplicate to get deputies he had the rings change their directive a bit. The same can be said of Wonder woman. The ring said she had great love in her, in most other cases the rings chose people who were void of love or were heart broken.

    Yeah, and the whole Superman not getting the blue ring thing kind of caused people to shake their heads a bit too, so I see your point. So maybe Ganthet specifically picked certain people?

    The Indigo ring normally don't chose people, they are forced in to them, so they don't have the chance to look for compassion.
    In Blackest Night the ring finally got to chose someone, so it searched for compassion for the first time.

    I don't think Ganthet chose anyone. Not sure many people would choose to give Lex Luthor power. I believe it's how Joao said. The rings chose on their own. Which begs the other question of why exactly Mogo was needed if the rings can inherently choose people by themselves. Unless the rings used to choose any kind of people with willpower, be it good or evil.

    Exactly. Mogo was the moral compass. Without Mogo you get Sinestro with a green ring again.

    Yup, I think left to their own devices, the rings are going to pick whoever is best at "overcoming great fear" and is closest. That's pretty much the only criteria the rings go by, isn't it?

    And that's interesting that the Indigo's don't go out searching, I hadn't thought of that. It certainly makes it unique and more personal when someone is chosen.

    Just makes me wonder why the Guardians seemed surprised by the whole thing.

    He was murdered by John Stewart. (A necessary homicide at the time.)
