A Character To Learn More About

Posted by BRiAN On February - 27 - 2010

I know I am trying to spotlight characters who may be obscure or even lost in the halls of history but after certain events in comics this week, Blackest Night #7, and last week, Green Lantern #51, I finally broke down and looked up the history on that guy who has been stirring up trouble for everyone who’s…well, alive. That’s why this week I have chosen:


look at this dude! he's serious scary!

Created by Mike W. Barr, Len Wein and Joe Stanton, Nekron first appeared in Tales of the Green Lantern Corps vol. 1 #2 in June of 1981. He is the embodiment of Death itself in the DC Universe, much like the Spectre is Vengeance.

This guy is a force to be reckoned with and if you haven’t been reading Blackest Night you have no idea!

Be sure to check back next week to see who or what I pull out of obscurity to showcase here in A Character To Learn More About! This is part of my effort to make Saturdays on the internet a little less boring [as Johnny Zito once said to me].
Also if there are any ideas for whom you may like to see here in this section shoot me an email! [BRiAN]
