John Stewart/Green Lantern
Thought I’d start today off with Superman and GL playing fetch with Krypto. In space.
reason 025: because they where able to turn guy gardner of all people into someone sorta likable.
If you only found gltas Guy likable then you’re clearly oblivious to how likable he already was.
comics!Guy is an actual sweetheart
like wow he cares about his friends and teammates so fucking much I just
don’t get me started on tora
man does he respect ted
plus he’s a total dork
even he knows not to mess with bianca reyes
and yeah he can be darn inspirational too
actual shonen manga protagonist guy gardner
Guy is the actual best. He’s such an asshole, mostly because he’ll say whatever’s on his mind and gives no fucks what you think of him. He’ll say what everyone’s thinking, however inappropriate. That is so very much a part of his charm. He’s got a massive heart. When he cares about someone or a cause, he cares with all of his heart, with every fiber of his being, and woe betide anyone who tries to harm his loved ones or innocents. In fact, Guy adores children. And any man as fiercely protective of children as Guy Gardner is to be loved and treasured. :)
ALRIGHT. Now THIS is what I’ve been waiting to hear before I felt comfortable promoting the SMGO effort. I was glad earlier today when SMGO addressed the money path ambiguity, but still concerned about having sanction from the IP owners (in our case, Warner Brothers).
Okay Fanterns, the reins are off. Full speed ahead on this effort.
Green Lantern’s Oath by John Stewart
It was announced today that John Stewart has been slated for death by DC Editorial, causing the new writer of Green Lantern Corps to leave the title before any of his issues have even seen print.
John Stewart is, without a doubt, my favorite comic book character. I’ve been working on a post for months about how poorly I feel he’s been treated and perceived the past few years, but now it seems pointless. It doesn’t get worse than this. DC seems to care so little about representation that they give little thought to benching even their highest profile POC characters, regardless of how their fans feel about them, on top of their female and queer characters. It’s appalling and embarrassing. DC Editorial doesn’t even respect their employees enough to let them try to put, or even keep, these characters in the forefront.
I can already see people defending these choices by pointing out that Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro) and Vibe (Francisco Ramon) have received their own titles recently, but this is during the same periond that David Zavimbe is being replaced as Batwing because they “felt Batwing was missing a direct and important connection to the Bat Family” and John Stewart is condemned to death in a book he’s been a part of for 4 years. You’re not excused from eliminating two POC because you added two more.
Where are Virgil Hawkins, Michael Holt, Celine Patterson, and Lucien Gates? What happened to Kiran Singh (I know she’s in TT, but not even close to the character she used to be)? What happened to the various international characters in Batman Inc and why did Grant Morrison make them look so inept: El Gaucho (Santiago Vargas), Nightrunner (Bilal Asselah), Little Raven, and Mr. Unknown (Jiro Osamu)?
It’s truly a shame that there aren’t more people speaking out against this sort of thing, and that the people that are seem to be largely ignored by the people who make decisions at DC.
I don’t mean to ignore many women and queer characters DC has been treating poorly or erased. I’m just not as familiar with them at present.
I actually love and adore Cartoon Network, but this is what sorta feels like right now ;-;
Does anyone reading Green Lantern want to talk about Simon Baz?
This is a long one. Putting it behind a break.
Or more like flying, fighting or just plain being in ridiculous poses.
I promised the fine people of the fandom a Christmas present, I hope it’s worthy of your attention.
I don’t understand
how does your body work
are you sure
I know Hal’s slender waist is legendary, but you can’t possibly pull this pose off without the help of a wormhole
That’s probably the general response people have when they find out Bruce is just human.
