Default Blackest Night - Black "Green" Lanterns [SPOILERS]

I'm trying to identify the Green Lanterns that have returned as Black Lanterns in Blackest Night #1 but must admit that while I've been able to identify quite a few, there's still a lot of GL's I can't seem to identify and was wondering if any of you could id some of those I've missed.

I've made an image of the two-page Black Lantern spread with the ones I can identify numbered according to the Crypt of the Green Lantern spread from the Green Lantern Sinestro Corps Secret Files.

The image can be seen here:

http://tenzel.net/rise.jpg

Here are the ones I can identify:

2 Adara
3 Ahtier
6 Archon Z'gmora
8 Arkkis Chummuck
9 Avir
10 Ayria
13 Barin
14 Bivvix
15 Blish
17 Branwilla
21 C'hp
23 Chogar
25 Cundiff Cood
28 Diamalon
31 Ebikar Hrui
32 Eddora
34 Flodo Span
36 Galius Zed
37 Kreon
39 Hollika Rahn
40 Jack T. Chance
44 K'Ryssma
46 Ke'Haan
47 Kendotha Kr'nek
59 Priest
66 Rori Dag
70 Spak Drom
71 Squagga
74 Tanakata Z
72 Starkadr
78 Tylot
86 Zharan Pel
87 the Unknown Lantern

And a few that died after the special.

88 Bzzd
89 Arx
90 Remnant Nod

On Wikipedia the following are named but I can't seem to find them.

Alisand'r
B'rr
Cherniss
Chthos-Chthas Chthatis (might be the one in between numbers 87 and 89 right at the left border of the picture)

There appears to be two of note missing Abin Sir and Tomar Ra. I wonder why these two, who are so important to the mythos, are missing???

Any thoughts?

I guess I was also asking what roll (if any) these two will play.

The amount of time that Geoff has spent on Abin indicates that he sees him important to the myth - but we have hardly seen Tomar - a lot of his mentoring role has been somewhat split between Sinestro and Kilowog. I always liked Tomar and was touched by his passing.

The wise uncle that too often Hal really needs. Hal has a lot of willpower but he tends to be too headstrong for his own good. Tomar tended to moderate him a bit.

This might help some



I got it from the Blackest Night microsite at dccomics.com. Not sure when it was originally printed though.
 
It looks great! The fat one balances the two skinny ones.

Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?

Thanks, Last Sun. It was bothering me who the crystaline dude was. I knew it wasn't Chaselon.

Nice to see Eddore reincorporate to be reanimated. Where is Driq??

#45 is most likely Katma tui.

Who is #91? That can't be Laira, can it?

The picture is from the Orgins and Secret Files special from a few years back.

Just realized that Tenzil is using the same numbering. So I guess this is the image from the secret files.

I just went and looked at the SC-OS&F's again. I looked close at the picture of the dead GL - Abin Sur was there, but no Tomar Re. Even more interesting is that he is mentioned in his son's write up; so it has to be more than just an over-site. I wonder what the reason is. Could Tomar not actually be dead as we thought?

He is such an important character to Hal (well at least he was) for him not being either in the O&SF's nor in BN#1 for this not to be signifant - question is where he fits?

I think you're all forgetting to mention the most important lantern of all time. Where is G'nort?!

And to Sinestro as well.

Speaking of Tomar, I'm sure he'd like to see New Krypton.

Medphyl doesn't appear to be in either picture. Is that because he died outside of his service as a GL, or because he went bad before he died? Or perhaps the GL Corps was never notified of his death?
