Word of the Day! 10/16/11

Word of the Day

variegate [vair-ee-i-geyt]
verb
1. to make something varied in appearance, as by adding different colors.
2. to give variety to; to diversify.

spectrum [spek-truhm]
noun
1.  Physics. an array of entities, as light waves or particles, ordered in accordance with the magnitudes of a common physical property, as length wave or mass; often the band of colors produced when sunlight is passed through a prism, comprising red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
2. a broad range of varied idea or objects, the individual features of which tend to overlap so as to form a continuous sequence or series.

EX. Geoff Johns created and developed the idea of using the emotional spectrum correlation with Green Lantern canon to variegate the cast of heroes and villains that the Green Lantern Corps dealt with into six new colors and emotions that stretched across both the emotional and light spectrum. 

I will probably detail all seven of the corps in various articles over the next year because I am a huge Green Lantern fan and love Geoff John's creations (Blackest Night is probably my favorite DC comics event).
