      I was wondering what color she would be. I can deal with love, but I was kinda hoping for either blue or indigo( really hard to come by).

Diana is not material for either blue or indigo as we have seen that only specific types of people are chosen for this, and they have to give themselves completely to the corps. Diana is more willful and less committed to any absolute dogma, plus more importantly she was meant to be a warrior and diplomat, rather than a saint or comforter. Love for her mother and others has been her motivation, though I would have expected a bit of willpower from her as well.

    The repeated color analysis by the BN Rings has gotten a bit boring by now as some of the readings seem awfully selective and debatably off at times. Still, its.. interesting.. to see she was ALL LOVE thru the whole fight.

It might have somethig to do with her holding the Lasso , as well as being a magical construct given life. Niles Caulder by comparison is all orange (BN Doom Patrol), though so the BL rings may not penetrate so well with some people, or Diana is jsut that focused and controlled.


      The Zamarons or whatever they are called, could learn some nice moves from Diana.

They are not fighters; the Sapphires clearly don't manifest heavy weaponry or demonstrate martial skills, apart from perhaps Fatality who hasn't done that on panel either.

    The transition between BN crossovers was a little odd. Why previously the Black Rings were taking over meta-corpses or key 'family' members but here there are gads of them taking up soldiers all willy nilly. This is 1 of the 2 differences. Also it is still frustratingly unclear process in many respects where the characters should be offering readers MORE detailed observations now. Throwing in The Unknown Soldier into the mix was.. interesting.

It's strange that that Unknown Soldier knows nothing of his name, even though the BL Rings search for memories and directly upload them.

The BL Rings do pick up any ol' dead person, though the ones we've seen are significant to the story and were more likely to get emotional responses from the living.


      Also liked how her lasso was used: beautiful.

Yet another link to the proper light of creation, which of course birthed the Greek Gods in the first place.
