Green Lantern #26 Review

on December 5, 2013

Issue #26 of Green Lantern is out, and .co takes a look. Let’s see how Hal Jordan messes things up this month!

I still have a hard time sympathizing with Hal Jordan or his actions. He makes up rules on the fly that affect the entire universe without even consulting anyone else, he does not clearly define those rules, he doesn’t show much respect for the people he’s supposed to be protecting, he brushes suggestions made by other Corps members (like John Stewart) aside, and he’s basically all around bumbling. We have to wonder where all of this is going.

Oa, by the way

The video game Young Justice: Legacy has recently released for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 3DS, and it features our favorite Green Lantern, John Stewart! What else is interesting is that he’s the only Green Lantern who appears in the game! Here’s a look at John in Legacy:

I’m happy to see John Stewart appearing in more media. Keep it coming, WB! You can find more information about Legacy at the official website right here.

    Awesome voice acting from the guy who played Thaddeus in the Final Flight of the Osiris 😀

    Good to see John getting some spotlight

      Thanks for posting that! I really hope the Idris Elba thing was a hint. Hopefully WB has already locked up some kind of deal or at least has been in contact with him. I’m not counting on that, but I do hope!

      It’s no secret by now that Cavill has endorsed Cyborg. If they do use Cyborg for the Justice League film, I hope they don’t cut John Stewart out of it. I don’t think the world will explode if there are two black people in the Justice League.

      If, however, it has to be one or the other, then I’m for John Stewart all the way. I think he’s a much better character, and I’ve already made it known that I think showcasing the only minority in the League as a giant ugly robot who is both an invalid and eunuch is insulting and terrible.

      To me, doing that would make it seem as though the people in charge of the movie do not view minorities as people like them, in that they think minorities have no desire for cool characters they can see themselves reflected in, and aspire to be like. I just don’t think using a robot who’s missing half his face and the rest of his body is a good way to go, because nobody wants to be like that. A brave an honorable person chosen out of all humans to represent the human race in an intergalactic police force? Now, that is something to be proud of and that offers great wish fulfillment.

        You’re welcome!

        Agreed 100%. I just want to add a few points. How many robots are on film and comics right now? Robocop, the Transformers, Batman’s exosuit, Lex’s exosuit, Batman’s drones, Metallo… Cyborg ain’t nothing special. Heck, we’re already giving people mechanical parts in real life. He’s as generic as his name.

        John is much more complex and a better role model. He also adds more to the team in terms of characterization. Cyborg is a teen titans and should stay there.
