REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #43


Have you ever experienced something that truly opened your eyes? Or at least known someone who believes their life has changed? In my experience that eye opening experience isn’t always a healthy one, and slowly but surely you or someone else morphs into something that is unrecognizable. Sometimes a new perspective isn’t always a good perspective. Warning the following review will contain spoilers. So remember to read your comic before reading further. You have been warned.

Green Lantern to Receive Ultraviolet Makeover

The Emotional Magnetic Spectrum consists of nine colors and each unique color has a corresponding emotion. Each is also assigned a specific energy field and the whole thing is overseen by Lantern Corps. Following on from events in Dark Nights Metal, namely the Source Wall breach, DC Comics has announced that they are adding a tenth color to the spectrum – ultraviolet.

This new portion of the spectrum will be entrusted to none other than John Stewart, the current Green Lantern, not the TV host. Along with the announcement, DC released some cover art for the new issues. This art, by Jorge Jimenez, features Stewart with his new ring in place and the ultraviolet logo.

New Storyline

The new storyline revolves around Stewart learning of the ultraviolet power and learning how to properly wield it. He will be unleashing his new abilities alongside many stalwarts of the Justice League, with the Flash, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman all appearing. Issue 3 will see the Justice League investigating the scene of the Source Wall fragment. Along the way they will encounter hordes of monsters, and, according to DC, they will face “a pair of longtime archenemies using stolen Atom technology to literally get under [the League’s] skin.”

The subsequent issue will expand upon this ultraviolet story, but DC remains cagey about their long-term plans for the plotline. Whether Stewart will become just one of many Ultraviolet Lanterns, or whether this will make him split off to form his own superhero team, remains up in the air. What we do know is that he is the first who will wield this new power, and the indications so far are that Stewart will remain in this state for some time.

Given the scope of the Dark Multiverse, there is every chance that we will be introduced to new sectors and other areas for the Lanterns to keep watch over.

Green Lantern

Green is the best known of the Lantern Corps in the DC Universe, but there are others. Green is represented by the force of willpower and it is wielded by the Oans, a race of beings who act as Guardians of the Universe, combating evil throughout the cosmos.

How to Read the New Issues

Comic book stores are becoming harder to find, leading an increasing number of readers to switch to digital formats. There has even been attempts made to establish a new digital format of comics which takes advantage of the medium. If you buy your comics digitally, they are much easier to backup, so you don’t have to worry about losing your collection. If you were to suffer data loss, a service like Secure Data Recovery could still help you retrieve everything in most cases.

When Green Lantern: Rebirth was written, it established the existence of the rest of the spectrum. Among the rest of the spectrum are Red Lanterns, who naturally signify anger and rage. Yellow Lanterns are represented by fear, while Orange is associated with green, and blue with hope. The exact nature of the ultraviolet part of the spectrum is yet to be established.

What does a Green Lantern do on his or her day off?


What Does a Green Lantern Do on Their Days Off?

Have you ever wondered what superheroes do when they’re not fighting crime or saving the universe? It’s not something that gets covered in comic book stories and movies very often, because all the emphasis is on the protagonist’s battles with evil and his or her internal struggles with their own personal demons. Do they even have time for a day off here and there? Of course, reading about the day Wonder Woman read a great book, or watching a Green Lantern cataloguing his stamp collection wouldn’t make the most riveting story, but surely there must be more to their lives than the unending stress of getting Earth out of yet another tricky situation that spells doom for the human race?

They must have other things to do, surely?

If you’re thinking that superheroes obviously must do other things in their spare time, see if you can name any. Have a search on Google and discover the almost complete lack of any information on how the saviors of the human race kick back and relax. In the Lego movie, Justice League vs the Bizarro League, the Flash does ask for some ideas for things to do because he’s bored, and has a go at hobbies like ice sculpture and North American bird calls, but then these only take him seconds to master and he doesn’t seem able to slow down and stop moving at the speed of light!

Green Lantern could be a secret Pokémon addict

Given that there are a great many different Green Lanterns in the universe stretching back a fair way into history, it could be argued that it’s perfectly possible that one of them may have got hooked on Japanese pocket monsters, but there’s no evidence that any of the human lanterns ever have. In asking a question like “What does a Green Lantern do on his days off?“, you immediately hit a problem because unlike Superman or Batman, Green Lantern is a title held by a series of different people. These lanterns have all had their own unique personalities, so obviously there’s no simple answer. But if you know your lanterns, you could make a pretty educated guess:

* Hal Jordan: Being the definitive hero type, Hal would probably be happiest using his leadership skills to crack the fiendishly cunning challenge of the Escape Room St Louis. With the kind of life he’s had to lead, giving his brain a rest is likely to be an alien concept, and figuring out a mystery puzzle might be just the kind of challenge he would consider to be a relaxing diversion.

* Guy Gardner: Although his persona has shifted a few times over the years, Guy has always had an impressive ego, so a show-off sport like snowboarding could be right up his street. Showing off his skills on the half-pipe with a few ollies and a poptart would suit his style to a tee.

If you know anything about the hobbies and pastimes of any of the Green Lanterns, spread the word – there are a lot of interested fans out there waiting to hear more!


REVIEW: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #42


Duality is one of the greatest aspects or humanoid life. No one is born good or evil, we all have the capacity for both. Even the most stoic of heroes can succumb to darkness that lies inside. I mean look no further than Hal Jordan himself. Sure that event is not long canon (I don’t think it is?)but fans will never forget Jordan’s trip to the dark side. Perhaps another Lantern is fated to walk that very same path. Warning the following comic contain spoilers. So be sure to read your comic before continuing on. You have been warned.
