The black GL from Justice League and Justice League Unlimited was John Stewart. He might have it spelled Jon. That other guy was right basically. I don’t remember the year though so look it up or listen to the first person said. He or she sounded on point. 1st came Batman The Animated Series then The New Adventures Of Batman and Robin then Superman The Animated Series then Justice League then Justice League Unlimited. John Stewart was on JL and JLU.
I always have like John more than Hal. It took forever for Hal to get on my good side before then I thought he was ehh. I don’t know when Green Lantern the animated series came out because I discovered it after it was over but that and some of the animated movies helped to change my mind about him. It’s true I like to see black people included but I liked John Stewart’s stern attitude. Also, I thought his constructs were much better. Much.
I always thought Hal was trying a bit too hard and coming off obnoxious to me. Almost clownish. Not heroic just annoying and his constructs were never logical enough for me. A hand or a fist or something a kindergartener would play with. John’s constructs looked like problem solving ideas and tools to me. I think he fits in better with an organized team and is a better team mate for Batman and Wonder woman too and better at being compassionate. So that’s why. Green Lantern the animated series or GLTAS and the animated movies helped Hal by making him look dutiful to me. That helped a lot. A lot.
Apparently, critics and non dc fans hated the GL movie. I thought it needed work but wasn’t horrible. They over played the 3D. Ryan Renalds was ok but that’s not the right brand of smart ass in my opinion. Tom Cruise in Knight and Day not Ryan Renalds but he was ok. The villain was the real flaw. He just wasn’t something an audience who wasn’t already into dc green lantern stuff could connect to in my opinion and even then … Ehh. However, Kilowog and the other lanterns and their constructs and the training were very well done in my opinion. That was entertaining. That helped me like the Green Lanterns more too. Learning what the other lanterns corps are helped too.
I saw summaries and explanations on YouTube about Blackest Night I thought it sounded epic. From what I understand it’s a impressive reboot. As a matter of fact the YouTube summaries made the other Lantern Corps sound so impressive too. John Stewart in combination with all that is what made me begin to see the different lanterns corps as interesting.
