Hm... I'm not sure if anyone's noticed this or not...

I don't want to make too many topics or flood the forum or anything like that... It's just I found out something interesting today and I couldn't resist commenting on it...

Did you know that Lucifer is Latin for "light-bearer" or "light-bringer?" Weird, huh? Wonder if that's part of the reason why Darkbringer is convinced that Lightbringer is the evil one?

Well, first and foremost... I found it on Wikipedia... when I was searching for a Lightbringer entry....

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer

It's also in several other places....

www.latin-dictionary.org/lucifer

www.answers.com/topic/lucifer

Hmm... I just thought of something... Wasn't Lightbringer's girlfriend proficient in Latin? (I can't remember... Maybe Linkara already made a reference to the fact that Lightbringer= Lucifer?)

I knew going in that Lightbringer meant Lucifer in Latin (Thank you Alone in the Dark!). I´m wondering if this may alluded to how Carter got his powers. Maybe they´re of demonic origin, perhaps Carter is truly evil. :eyebrow:

Demonic in origin, huh? Well... Being demonic doesn't necessarily mean Lightbringer is evil. Raven has demonic origins... Hellboy... A variety of other superhero/superheroine characters....

Of course, generally, it does seem they have some sort of prophecy attached to them that says they're going to bring about the end of the world... But... who knows?

I'm not sure if Linkara would go for that angle or not... He seems to be leaning more towards the mutant route. Lightbringer has his powers due to some sort of mutation...

No, mutants don´t exist! I´m totally sure that a magic duck gave him the powers. Why? Why not, I dare ask you?

Edit: I was half-asleep when I wrote this, so of course I made no sense. Apologies, good forum goers.
