Secret Origins #9 Review
on January 30, 2015
At long last, John Stewart’s New 52 origin is told. No John Stewart fan should miss this! As such, .Co is here to hit you with some thoughts.
“Van Jensen has certainly earned the right to pen this incredibly crucial part of John Stewart’s lore. Jensen has taken the time and interest in extensively researching John Stewart’s history. He has read every (or practically every) key appearance and run for the character. He has watched and studied the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoon series. He has touched base with John Stewart’s fans and knows what they want to see and what they don’t. He is the ultimate John Stewart writer. There is no one I would trust more to write John Stewart’s revised origin than Van Jensen, and he doesn’t disappoint me here. He pulls through with flying colors. If you’re a John Stewart fan then this origin story is sure to please you.”
There are many exciting developments happening with John Stewart right now (see below), so be sure to keep an eye on GreenLantern.Co to stay up to date with the latest.
Tyrese Gibson continues his mission of becoming the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 in DC’s burgeoning cinematic universe. He has posted many great fan edits of himself as John Stewart on his Instagram account, but an image he recently posted is especially captivating.
As you can see, Tyrese posted an image of the WB studio entrance along with the caption:
“I don’t talk….. I move….. #WB #GreenLanternMission”
This, of course, is meant to lead us to believe he has met with Warner Bros. executives to discuss playing Green Lantern. There is still no official confirmation of talks taking place, but things are looking better and better for the prospect of Tyrese playing John Stewart.
Speaking of things looking better and better, it seems John Stewart will be ComicVine.Com’s “Character of the Month” for February.
