*** Though if that's true, and the ring ''doesn't'' produce oxygen inside its force fields, the rest of the SuperFriends should have asphyxiated on their first space mission together.

***** Might be multiple sets from different points in Earth's history coexisting. SevenSoldiers states outright that Earth has had several dozen Camelots throughout its history, with similar persons and events happening each time in a recurring historical motif. Cain and Abel were probably something similar- the first murder in any society or subspecies probably just kept following that motif of two brothers, one a shepherd and one a farmer.

*** Though Green Lantern rings use Will power, their users are selected by their capacity to overcome fear. Maybe the chosen humans ere better in this than the superpowered earthlings.

* Okay, I'm sorta loving the LightsOut arc and all but one thing that confused the hell out of he is, how are they using up the emotional spectrum faster than those of Relic's universe? I mean their justification for this is that now their are more corps than in Relic's universe, but the other six corps were fairly recent additions. Not to mention Relic's universe also had seven versions of 'lightsmiths', who in addition to being much larger than beings of this universe were also maintaining CITIES of light with the emotional spectrum 24/7 in addition to other constructs as well as usage in mundane lifestyles (Example:Becoming a Red Lightsmith apparently being offered as a form of immortality).

** There might be no direct translation for what they were saying. Like in InfiniteCrisis when the always lovely {{Supergirl}} told {{Firestorm}} that there was no word for "escape" in Kryptonese. (Which, as good ol' ComicBook/AnimalMan immediately noted, explains quite a bit)

* Why did Ray Palmer get an Indigo Lantern Ring in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' when ''BrightestDay'' revealed that the rings only choose those who have no compassion?

** The ring's basic programming was based on Green Lantern rings. It normally seeks out persons of great compassion because this is the emotion the Indigo Tribe is based on. As has been pointed out, when left to its own devices the rings will seek out compassionate people. This was proven in ''BlackestNight'' when the ring spoke to Ray Plamer, explaining why he was chosen. Similarly, Proselyte sought out Shane Thompson when he was being crushed by an overturned ambulance but still more concerned for his patients than his own fate. It's been established before that the Corps can choose their candidates before they send the rings, which is Mogo's job. Presumably Indigo-1 does something similar, overriding the basic programming and has them seek out fellow villains.

*** During ''BlackestNight'', Nekron banishes the Anti-Monitor and tells him "Go back to your own universe, this one is mine." If he ''is'' concerned with the rest of the 52, he doesn't show it. (The only universe hopping the Black Lanterns do involves going after Superboy-Prime, who killed them.)

* Here's one of the problems with super heroes sharing the same universe...of all the kind-hearted, do-gooders on earth, why did the ring pick Hal Jordan? I'm pretty sure there were a LOT of "Chosen Ones" on earth worthy of the ring. I can see the ring not picking Superman because he wasn't born on earth, and Batman since he strikes fear in his enemies, but what about Aquaman and the others?
