History of the Green Lantern Corps!

Green Lantern - the spectrum corps

“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might – Beware my power–Green Lantern’s light!” – The Oath of the Green Lanterns.

Despite the ‘somewhat disappointing’ Ryan Reynolds film, any DC comic fan can tell you that the Green Lantern comics are actually part of a really intriguing and exciting space opera with a super hero twist and chock full of symbolism. I for one highly recommend Geoff Johns’s brilliant run on the character.

With the recent announcement of DC’s upcoming slate of movies including a new Green Lantern Corps film, and the 75th anniversary of the original GL character, I figured it was a good a time as any to cover the history of the various Green Lanterns over the years…

The Green Lantern Corps

The Green Lanterns are an intergalactic peace-keeping force of emerald knights who utilize the power of will to battle the forces of darkness throughout the universe. Founded by an immortal race of Guardians on the Planet Oa, near the center of the universe, the Green Lantern Corps utilize a highly sophisticated device known as a power ring – a device with the ability to harness the green energy of willpower from its’ user. In addition to providing a suit, a protective aura, and the ability to fly at incredible speeds, the ring also enables its wearer to create constructs, manipulate matter, form force fields, analyze the environment, and generate energy blasts. Each Green Lantern patrols one of 3,600 sectors and is chosen for his or her ability to overcome great fear.

Spider-man: Homecoming – Review!

“Spider-man: Homecoming” is technically the sixth Spider-man film – and the second reboot, but it’s the first one that takes place in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Tom Holland’s second appearance as Peter Parker – who first debuted as the wall crawler in “Captain America: CIVIL WAR”.

Homecoming basically picks up right after the events of Civil War, and deals with the repercussions of “The Avengers” so you might be a little lost on a few details if you haven’t seen all three Captain America movies, all three Iron Man movies, and both Avengers movies. You’ll also probably want to see the previous Spidey movies, because this one completely skips the origin story this time around.

What I’m Reading #11

Here’s some of my personal favorites from my pull list over the past few months…

BATMAN #25

Batman 25 - a war of jokes and riddles

“A War of Jokes and Riddles” is shaping up to be one very cool story arc. This issue shows how a gang war between the Joker and the Riddler begins. The Riddler is one of my favorite Bat-villains, and he’s criminally under-used in my book, so it’s nice to see him take center stage. Although the Joker is completely over-used, this seems to be an interesting take on the clown prince of crime.

Star Wars: DARTH VADER #1

Darth Vader 2017

The Dark Lord of the Sith returns! This one picks up right after the events of Revenge of the Sith and tells the story of how Vader got his light-saber.
