    I think Canis would see it as fakes.

    Red Tornado is an AI, not a mere program, so maybe he would see it differently? Idk.

    I don't know who or what that Wonder Woman was, but this is probably the Young Offenders and the Syndicate. I say this because their episode was titled Doppelgänger. The yellow power ring user is probably Capo Alan "Al" Scott. I wonder how jealous Baul is over how much Paul has accomplished in comparison.

    Well, Yellow Lantern may mean Qwardian involvement, so if it's a Weaponer-built robot duplicate... It's quite plausible it could fool all of that detection tech.

    But if it's Crime Syndicate universe or some other parallel, she may just have been an alternate WW and not needed to fool the defenses.

    If he's from the DC Universe Doom Patrol timeline then I won't be surprised.

    IIRC blue Paul gave OL the tech to block parallel universe incursions, and Sinestro isn't dumb enough to just show up on a planet that has several greens assigned to it.

    I thought OL was supposed to be genre savvy?

    Is this like with Graven where he's embedded enough into story that he misses the flags?

    The most plausible answer.

    Olympia, Power Ring Yellow, Baul, short hair hot pants Zatanna... I wonder why they would be kidnapping Paul... And more importantly how they bypassed the equipment that was placed in orbit to stop alternate universe incursions... Unless they jumped universe outside earth orbit and then came down, but that should have been detected too.

    This does seem the most likely scenario.

    Bypassing the dimensional travel blocking device shouldn't be too difficult considering the Syndicate provided it in the first place. It's perfectly feasible that they know how to subvert it.

    I doubt they would need to jump out of the universe to bypass the anti-alternate universe equipment. Blue Lantern told them to take the devices and put them into orbit around Earth. If they block all alternate universe travel to Universe 16, would would it matter where they are? If they're in orbit around Earth, they're most likely only able to cover Earth.

    A couple of devices as small as that being able to protect an entire universe from alternate universe travel is a bit ridiculous anyway, even by comic book standards.

    Dude that is what i said, the devices cover EARTH, to bypass them all you have to do is transfer from anywhere outside earths orbit, HOWEVER, the watchtower sensors SHOULD have been capable of detecting anyone as they came towars earth.

    Maybe the watchtower did detect them and was hit first before fake Diana went to the cave.

    given the Leauge's trackrecord, they might have had them all stripped out whilst OL was away for an equially stupid reason as refusing upgrades for the watchtower...
    ... or did he perform them at some point and they stripped them out? i might be getting my YJ fics scrambled due to the "sleepy brain" effect...

    That doesn't actually happen anymore. The IT security field has grown up to the point that having written a cool virus doesn't look impressive on your resume, and there are enough competent security professionals without records that there's no need to recruit from prisons anymore. Mostly former cyber-criminals who switch to a white hat end up either forming their own security company - like Kevin Mitnick did - or working for some other reformed cyber-criminal who did.

    That was with Grayven.

    In the Paul timeline it was the GREEN LANTERNS, the ones that were authorized to upgrade the sensors and then Paul installed more upgrades later...

    Even if they removed what Paul installed the ones installed by the green lanterns are more than enough .

    Probably should move the closing quote out of the invisitext.

    Remember his godspeech Tourette's from way back? Remember how Scott Free said his energy felt "vaguely Apokoliptian"? Marinating in the Orange Light while building his soul has given him some form of what New Gods see as divinity.

    I have to agree Paul is holding a bit of an idiot ball here. Having his empathetic vision blocked combined with the rather short Diana should have set off warning bells. I really hope the others don't let him live this down.

    He had been pushing the JL to improve their telepathic defenses since the training scenario went sour, and he's seen Diana act like this before.

    That bloody cliffhanger. What's Interesting to me Is the fact that we saw several versions of Paul with different rings, but never a Yellow Lantern Paul. Most likely theory is that this is his doppelganger.

    Which all amount to rather minor upgrades in the grand scheme of things.

    Grayven's got a yellow ring. It's his second ring, granted, but I'd think he'd count as a Yellow Lantern Paul.

    The abundance of yellow text after he got the Yellow Ring should've at least come up in skimming past it, though.

    Although originally the energy the Manhunters used was....pink.

    Well... kinda. But we did it anyway:


    Granted, that's a generator for realistic images, not artwork. But the techniques used are only improving; most major image editing software already has various smart-fill tools which can replace a section of the image inferred from the surroundings (and that video is almost a decade old) or similar modifications. A more well-known software, Deepfake, can basically replace a person's face in a video with anyone else.

    IMO, people really underestimate technology and what it's going to be able to do, when it comes to 'intelligent' things like this. A lot of people who consider it carefully eventually conclude that media itself will become almost completely unreliable, because the ability to fake it will mature far beyond the point where you can detect fakes.
