Who is THE FIRST LANTERN?

If you’ve read any of the GL books this past month, you’ve seen the various ringslingers of all colors confused as someone screams “LET ME OUT!” through their power rings. If you’ve read GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1 last week, you saw who the mysterious caller was. But, who (or what) exactly IS the FIRST LANTERN, and what part will he play in THE RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY, and the Guardians’ war on free will? Well, they dropped some cryptic hints over on the DC Bog:

“Who the First Lantern is and what his role will be in the upcoming Green Lantern universe will come into play very, very quickly,” hinted GREEN LANTERN writer Geoff Johns. “The being inside has been imprisoned there for a long, long time. The Guardians consider him their greatest threat, but also their greatest source of power. Whether he’s friend or foe will be up for debate, but regardless he is one of the potentially most dangerous beings in existence.”

“In GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1, readers got their first glimpse at the First Lantern, someone who’s been locked away for a very long time—for a VERY good reason!” teased editor Matt Idelson. “His presence in this story is the catalyst for something very bad, and yet his story is only going to grow from here.”
