Is the DC Universe Ready for Sodam Yat

He was born with the abilities of Superman and the attitude of Guy Gardener. The Guardians of the Universe have gifted him with the power of the Green Lantern. He was damn near unstoppable. Now Sodam Yat has become the next Ion: Guardian of the Universe. With all of the attention in DC leading up to the Final Crisis. The question is what influence will be made by Ion in the final crisis, and the rest of the Sinestro War for that matter. He destroyed Ranx the Sentient city in the Battle of Mogo. He faced the Anit-Monitor, who stopped his heart. Then he rose to take the ultimate power of the universe; a power rivaled only by Parallax, and now in the next Green Lantern Corps. issue he will be facing off against Superman-Prime. This is shaping up to be a slobber knocker. Lets look at the tale of the tape:

Ion: Guardian of the Universe
  • Has all of the abilities of Superman while under yellow sun's rays, including: super-strength, the power of flight, super-speed, super-breath, super-hearing, X-ray, heat, microscopic and telescopic visions, and invulnerability to any force other than a red sun, except at a much higher level. Wears a power suit modeled after that of the Anit-Monitor which collects and feeds him yellow solar energy.
Possible *Spoiler Alert* This was from a story, Tygers, Alan Moore wrote about Sodam Yat :
The Daxamite Green Lantern is named "Sodom Yat" and is also referred to as "The Ultimate Green Lantern". In that story, Sodom Yat is the last Green Lantern to confront Superman, who has just killed many Green Lanterns, Thanagarians and the Martian Manhunter. Sodom Yat then kills Superman.
It will be interesting to see how the new Green Lantern's Torchbearer will fare against Superman-Prime. I also wonder, what the future holds for Kyle Rayner, the prior Torchbearer, this cover art should be a nifty little teaser to get your mind going.
