The Lantern Corps

The overall arc starts with Coast City’s destruction in the otherwise-tolerable The Death of Superman (it happens towards the end and we’re missing the relevant GL issue for complicated reasons, but he’s at least in it; if you want to cut to the chase, start around Superman #80 or so), proceeds to the execrable Emerald Twilight story in issues 48-50 of this GL series, which builds into the dull, dull, dull crossover Zero Hour. If you don’t see what ZH has to do with GL, you’ll figure it out by the end.

AN HOW FING INSANELY AWESOME ROBERT V, Answered an commented on my remarks for the Q&A, that was legit the first time I got to interact with a writer, and what a cool feeling, cause I got the full subscription of his freedom fighters and a growing library of Green Lantern books which I am sure his name is on some where.

An double thanks for the replies to my question on the paralax thing there, i’ll be looking into those.

That would be amazing I’m not seeing a message icon for you so if you could please send me a message I would love to send it to you

Hello! I personally love the red and orange lantern corps.
Guy Gardner is my favorite character in any corps.


Emerald Twilight is my favorite arc. I am currently collecting physical copies of it. I have #50!

Glad to see more lantern fans exist.

Follow him on Twitter. He does a great job of engaging the fans!

I love the blue corps and the indigo tribe. My favorite lantern is probably saint walker or John Stewart.

I suppose i would have to say Indigo Tribe…as a testimony to my own personal transformations as a result of new levels of compassionate understanding…

Barry Allan, Blue Lantern.

After Hal’s Red Ring was destroyed by Saint putting the blue ring on his hand, I was a big fan of Hals struggle to wield both Blue and Green Rings in the following Agent Orange issues as he came to terms with his understanding and use of hope and will as one. For me it was a very humanizing concept in such a Fantastical Universe.

That is one of my favorite things about the emotional spectrum. It can be harder to relate to a character like Superman or Batman, at least as far as their powers and abilities go. But I think anyone can relate to having to rely on hope that things will get better, or having the willpower to get through difficult situations. I’ve been reading the early Hal Jordan comics, and I definitely like that the emphasis moved from being “without fear” to “overcoming fear”.

I’m curious, why was no female lanterns pick so far.

Bleez and J-Cruz are mentioned in this one:

Hey everyone I’m Ryan.
Finaly a club that I can get behind lol.

Which Lantern Corps would I be part of:
I’m a Green Lantern all the way. I have the emblem tattooed on my right arm. I’ve had some tragedies in my past that the symbol gives me the will to live each day.

My favorite Lantern:
When I first really got into comics it was Green Lantern right after Emerald Dawn. So I got really attached to Kyle Rayner.
I just liked that he was in the right place at the right time. Which to me made it real.

Favorite Instance with the Lanterns:
Blackest Night, GLTAS, Sinestro Corps War, and I know I’m in the minority here but I actually enjoyed the movie. Not my favorite but it was a good try for a DC movie not featuring Batman or Superman at the time.

Thank you
Ryan

Anyone know if Green Lantern Earth One is on here or not ? I been searching around and can’t find it. Not really surprised I can’t find it either. Oh an GL E2 Is slated to come out in August 2020.

Judging from this thread they are not on here. I went head and requested it in the print to digital thread

Anyone remember the Elseworlds story Evil’s Might? A 3 issue mini series.
I remember it from years ago. Found all three issues, read them put them somewhere and couldn’t find them again. I was at my mother’s house today helping her put ACs in her house when I moved a box to get to one of the ACs and the three issues fall out of another box. Lol I havent seen them in 4 years.

Anyways it’s a great tale. Best way to describe it is, picture the movie Gangs of New York meets Green Lantern comics. Kyle is the hero of the story. This is a fare warning to Hal and Alan fans you may not like this tale.

Edit. So I just checked and those issues are on here.
