What's with the Green Lantern hate. Yesterday I saw a bottle of organic fruit juice that put down Green Lantern.
If it was organic lemonade it could beat Green Lantern and has earned the right to make fun.
DC needs to return to the fun, light-hearted comics they did in the 1960s, when on any given month Green Lantern would have to battle a talking yellow circus monkey or he'd have to switch places with superman to fool someone trying to guess his identity.Only when Green Lantern is dressed like a girl to lure Space Cupid out of hiding will anyone take him seriously as a literary character.
This is It's True...
No silly, it's Green ARROW, that they make fun of! Well, him and Snapper Carr.
I bet Aquaman is thinking, "Thank GOD for the Batman: The Brave & The Bold cartoon for making me popular, so now I'm not the butt of anyone's jokes anymore."
Which Green Lantern, though? Hal? Guy Gardner would make them eat it if he found out.
They always made fun of Hal back then too, it's no surprise now.
Sounds like someone has a serious case of Ring envy. If he keeps on hating like this, I am sure Atrocitus will take note.
How is such a jerky comment "jus' folks"?
Clearly this individual saw the green pants and assumed "Green Lantern", in spite of the fact that none of them have shown any interest in wearing orange shirts.
Well, Hawkgirl and the Vixen did make fun of him when he wasn't around, but that's another thing. They both used to be his girlfriends. And besides, a guy that folds his socks is kind of funny.
Loved him in the Justice League animated. The Green Lantern seems like he should be the most awesome guy around just based on the premise. That being said, I can't wrap my head around why I haven't actually seen GL be cool since then, and his shining moment was the Savage Time arc where he wasn't really much of a lantern at all.Guy turns willpower into an energy source. I don't get how that could fail to be cool once, let alone repeatedly.
Probably because the best that writers can usually come up with is a giant fist?
@Matt Maybray, yeah that's something which seems a little anachronistic about green lantern nowadays. back in the golden & silver ages of comics, i'm sure that a guy who can conjure up any object that he imagines was a really exciting idea for most readers. "he's ONLY limited by his imagination? that's so cool!" but now we tend to look upon that as a hindrance for the character. "hal jordan ability to conjure stuff is limited by his imagination? but hal's imagination is so pedestrian!"
These guys are chosen for their willpower. They should be the original determinators. How did that angle ever get missed?
"I can use my mind to make ANYTHING!"*conjures up a gun yet again*Give the Green Lantern ring to a kid, they actually HAVE imagination.
Whoa whoa whoa! Dem's fightin' words! GL's my favorite comic. And yeah, while Hal's imagination apparently sucks, Kyle's is almost limitless, him being an artist and all. This was actually lampshaded by Parallax in the Sinestro Corps War story arc.
