Fans will also learn a lot more about John Stewart in November's Green Lantern Corps No. 25, a special issue that ties into Scott Snyder's "Zero Year" story line in Batman.
 
An integral story for where the Green Lantern is right now but also looking at his future, it focuses on a couple of pivotal moments in his past, one of which took place in Gotham City when he was in the Marine Corps.
 
"I don't think there's been a Green Lantern story that's ever been told like it," Jensen explains. "He is at this point right now where the Green Lantern Corps has lost its way and doesn't have the leadership it had — the Guardians did some terrible things and we've seen that John is really doubting the mission of the corps.
 
"We'll see a somewhat similar point in his life in the Marine Corps where he began to doubt the mission, and we'll see how one shapes and influences the other."
 
Fans will also see John Stewart confronting the philosophical question of whether Green Lanterns should have a license to kill, a central issue that Johns brought up in his run but will come up again soon as the group tries to right itself.
 
Someone like Stewart with his history as a Marine and architect, "that's as good a background as you can get for having to rebuild," Jensen says. "But in addition to that, he's someone who's really asking the big-picture questions."
