Green Lantern: Lost Army #2 Review
on July 17, 2015
GreenLantern.Co has got a review of the latest Green Lantern: Lost Army comic book, by Cullen Bunn and Jesus Saiz. Check it out.
“Speaking of the Marines, I’d like to pause on this scene and address something. There seems to be a group of people who have a problem with John Stewart’s Marine background coming into stories. To them, I say this:
John Stewart was in the Marine Corps. That is a huge part of his character now, thanks to his success on television. As such, it’s going to come up in his stories. His time as a Marine naturally shapes his perspective just as it would for most people. I’m not sure why that’s such a problem, but if it is… I don’t know what to say, except that maybe the character just isn’t for them. Batman is a billionaire. That comes up in his stories, yet I don’t often (ever) see a people complain about that. If someone writes John as a one-note character with nothing else to him, then that’s a problem with that writer. Fortunately, that isn’t what is happening in Lost Army.”
