John Stewart is a bit of an odd character for me. He’s a favorite character of mine, but in concept only.

How he’s been portrayed in the comics (for the most part), and in the various animated series, I’m ambivalent towards… or to be more exact, I’m indifferent.

How I envision him in my mind is who John Stewart is to me.

I start with of course GREEN LANTERN #87.

Then pick up again with GREEN LANTERN: MOSIAC.

And somewhere in-between there is John Ridley’s issue #1 of THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE.

First early on…

And then later…

And that’s John Stewart for me. And I’m content.

Weird.

Interesting that there’s going to be an essay on John Stewart by John Ridley in this collection. I’m curious to read that.

Much in the way that Joker gave me my “ideal,” or definitive, take on the character of the Joker, I suspect it’ll take a film to give me the same for John Stewart.

So my definitive John Stewart will most likely come from a Green Lantern movie.

And of course the Protagonist from Tenet as my fan cast for John Stewart.

John David Washington.
