Green Lantern #25 Review

on November 7, 2013

“Lights Out” is over, and the Green Lantern franchise settles into its new status quo. What happens next? Read’s review of Green Lantern #25 to find out.

“Green Lantern desperately needs to get away from focusing on ring wielding antagonists. The concept has been beaten to death, and it now seems like all the title is about is battling Lanterns of some other sort (often with powers boringly similar to Green Lantern’s), be they Yellow Lanterns, Red Lanterns, Black Lanterns, Orange Lanterns, Alpha Lanterns, First Lanterns, or Violet Lanterns. Sister title Green Lantern Corps has gracefully managed to break away from that and wonderfully blaze new and exciting trails, while Green Lantern is just the same old crap.”

Be sure to pick up Green Lantern Corps #25, due next week. It will tell the story of John Stewart’s origin in the New 52, and is the first time his origin has been revisited. We’re sure to get plenty of new insight on our favorite Green Lantern!

Oa, by the way

Here are some rather interesting situations Green Lantern John Stewart has found himself in. This is somewhat inspired by the Carol Ferris scene from last update’s Oa, By the Way…

I suppose there are worse places to be.

The classic butt slap from the Justice League episode “Hearts and Minds.” This is when the unresolved sexual tension between Green Lantern and Hawkgirl was at some of its highest, and Green Lantern and Hawkgirl were at some of their best. Fun times!

In the episode “War World,” no one was expecting Green Lantern -the disciplined, stoic marine- to take an interest in some alien smut he found lying around. It was a surprise that added a fun layer to the character. I wonder if Batman or Superman would have done the same thing… Probably not.
