Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

In even the Blackest Night, there are a few heartwarming moments.

  • Barry freeing Bart from his black ring with The Power of Love.
  • These pages from Blackest Night: The Flash #3. I take back everything bad I've ever said about Geoff Johns.
  • In a Blackest Night: Wonder Woman issue, Wonder Woman is drawn to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in Arlington National Cemetery, which has been taken over by a Black Lantern, who has also placed the sentinels who guard the tomb under mind control to fight Diana. She frees them from the mind control with the golden lasso, then tells them to escape while they can. They refuse to abandon their duty or leave their post at the tomb, and dig in to fight alongside Wonder Woman... against what's basically a superpowered zombie.

"Honored dead. Forgive Me"

  • Half of what happens when everyone comes back to life. Particularly:

Mera: Arthur? Are we dead?
Aquaman: No.
(they hug)

  • Guy Gardner, upon discovering that fellow GL Kyle Rayner is in fact alive, hugs him suddenly and warmly. Guy's normally a Boisterous Bruiser and a bit of a hardass, so seeing the relief and joy on his face is a touching moment.
