The mysterious First Lantern first appeared in the pages of Green Lantern Annual #1 and is central to the plot of the Guardians of the Universe to replace the Green Lantern Corps.

"I don't want to say he's a villain or a hero," Johns told USA Today.

"He's just a being who's targeting our main lanterns, our guys, to see if there's a way that maybe the universe could improve if they made different choices in their lives.

"You'll see why he's called the First Lantern within the story, but he's someone who's going to take a look at every one of our heroes and main characters and really tear their life apart and rip them open in a way we've never seen before on a very cosmic scale."

'Wrath of the First Lantern' will debut in Green Lantern #17 on February 6 and continue in sister titles Green Lantern Corps, Red Lanterns and Green Lantern: New Guardians.

Johns had previously said that 'Rise of the Third Army' was only a prologue to a bigger event.
