Latest Release From DC Comics Green Lantern is a Vietnamese-American Boy That Fights Racism

The latest middle-grade graphic novel from the author Minh Le is infused with his own spirit into the classic DC Comics story about the Green Lantern. He drew inspiration from the jade ring that his grandmother always wore. The Vietnamese touch to the story is translated from his past, when his grandmother, Ton Nu Tuy-Nhan, and the rest of the family fled to Vietnam as refugees during the Vietnam War.

This novel is called “Green Lantern: Legacy,” and it is about a Vietnamese-American boy as the main character that obtained supernatural powers through a jade ring that he inherits from an elder. As you can see the story implicates his past with his grandmother, and that is how the whole story fell into place, as he said in a recent interview.

This is the first Green Lantern character that is described as an Asian American. It is a great way to add a twist to the story and fight racism all over the world.  In the latest “Green Lantern: Legacy” (not to be confused with “Green Lantern: Legacy – The Last Will & Testament of Hal Jordan” of yore) we can see the exploration of the story of Tai Pham, who lives in an apartment above a store that his grandmother runs.

The action took off when Tai suddenly puts his grandmother ring and he realizes that he is the Green Lantern. Tai Pham is a very quiet person by nature, but once he realizes the power that he manages, he decides that his job is to protect his neighborhood from racist bullies and continue the legacy that his grandmother started in Vietnam.

Minh Le is a father of two children, and this novel made him realize how important the middle school years in the education and character of youngsters are. He grew up in a family of immigrants and refugees, and he said that he is delighted that he is given a chance to remake one of the most iconic American characters infused with an Asian flavor. He also added that this put hit through a lot of pressure and anxiety, just because he was trying to represent a culture that is kind of personal, but at the same time tell all the details that go with this superhero.

Minh Le also faced a problem when writing this novel just because of the difficulty of combining both stories. Since he is from a refugee family, he often wants to talk about the war and the struggles they faced during their early years in the United States. He also said that he didn’t want to get into details about their past during the Vietnam War. He added, “I wanted to talk about that, just because we have such a rich history, but there is so much pain there.”

This novel sends a particular message to people and includes different races in the world. It is a way to global peace among people. The truth is that everyone has the potential to become a superhero, no matter what type of person they are.

This is the first time that we’ve seen a cultural twist in superheroes, enrichen with real history. Paying tribute to his grandmother through one of the most iconic characters from DC Universe is an excellent way to say “Thank you” for all the troubles she went through.

“Green Lantern: Legacy” is a fascinating story that everyone should read. It will grow on you as fast as a horse running on Kentucky Derby. Its release is scheduled for February 4th and you should probably get it if you love graphic novels and appreciate a good story. Just like the precious NFL Super Bowl rings that hold respect, history, and hard work, Green Lantern has his grandmother’s ring that holds incredible power. The best thing is that he uses that power for a good cause, which sends the perfect message to the world.

Top 10 Biggest Moments from Ron Marz’ Green Lantern Run

20180820_082646

The 10 Biggest Moments from Ron Marz’ Green Lantern Run

From Green Lantern Vol. 3, #48 in January of 1994 all the way to #125 in June of 2000 (with a modicum of breaks along the way), Ron Marz was the Geoff Johns of that era of Green Lantern comics. There were ups, there were downs, there was crazy stuff, but always it was entertaining. Down to Earth more often than not, to where there’d be any sort of big space adventure, that’d be a big deal. I loved that. I admit, I would have never picked up an issue of Green Lantern had I not read in Wizard Magazine that “big stuff” was going on in the title. I picked up #50, backtracked a little from there, and the rest is history.

Let’s go down memory lane a little bit of some of the highlights of Ron Marz’ tenure as the gatekeeper of Green Lantern:

No, Tom Cruise isn’t “in the running” for Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern Corps movie (at least, not yet)

158424

A lot of articles are spreading like wildfire in the past couple of days about Tom Cruise being “in the running” for Hal Jordan in the “Green Lantern Corps” film but he has one condition: he dies in the script, but he doesn’t want to. If they change this in the script, he’s all good.

There is a couple of very obvious things wrong with this.

As has been well documented, after his simultaneous ousting as CCO of DC and President of WB Entertainment, as a consolation prize Geoff Johns was and has been tapped to write a first draft on the “Green Lantern Corps” screenplay there is no guarantee they will even use. It is neither complete nor turned in yet, nor given the thumbs up by WB as any kind of, “OK, this is something we want to move forward on.” As Geoff Johns has admitted in interviews, he “hopes” WB likes it and the hope is that they would proceed with his vision. “Hopes” being the operative word. They could very easily pass on it, as they passed on his script wrote in tandem with Ben Affleck for the original version of “The Batman” that Ben Affleck was going to direct.

There are several key words in there. The long and the short of it is that there is no script yet, the casting process is a long ways off (like, you know, when WB knows what movie it is they’re shooting, as they haven’t even read Geoff’s script yet because it doesn’t exist). Tom Cruise cannot be “in the running” if the casting process is still in the distance. Can you imagine pitching Tom Cruise right now?

WB: “Hi, Tom. A word?”

Tom Cruise: “Hey, sure! What’s up, WB?”

WB: “You want to play Hal Jordan in our new Green Lantern Corps movie?”

Tom Cruise: “Eh… I dunno. The last one was kind of iffy. Wasn’t that the one co-produced by Geoff Johns? That word is around Hollywood, you gave full veto authority to, creatively?”

WB: “Yeah! It’s funny you mention him. He’s the guy that’s writing the script of the new one.”

Tom Cruise: “Oh.”

WB: “Well what do you say? Are you in?”

Tom Cruise: “Jeeze, I dunno. I guess I’d need to read a script first. Can you send one to my agent?”

WB: “Doesn’t exist yet. But Geoff Johns is a great guy! He used to work for Richard Donner in like the 90s for little bit, as he mentions in many, many interviews you can Google. You may remember Richard Donner from SUPERMAN! #richarddonner”

Tom Cruise: “Ehhh… right, but… so you basically have nothing for me to look at right now? Fallout’s doing pretty great but I certainly don’t want another Mummy…”

WB: “Nope! But are you in?”

You can see how absurd that is, yes? Nothing to see here, folks. Everything you read on the internet isn’t true.

Geoff Johns gives incomprehensible, stammering update on his GLC movie script

Geoff-Johns-DC

According to Geoff Johns, his “Green Lantern Corps” script is shaping up to be not like Guardians of the Galaxy “Because James Gunn did such a great job on that, but you got to look at it like… I don’t want to get into it, either.” Also other gems emerge, like, “What do you do to try and reintroduce a concept and a group of characters and make it – this applies to everything I work on – but as a writer, and that’s what I really wanted to get back to, is being the writer, when I do my comics I feel I have more control over the minutae, because the minutae it does matter.” Everybody got that? Basically “I like control.” Also, he offered a comment on the suits in the previous “Green Lantern” film, (which he also co-produced): “I look at what they did with those suits. Look, I have so many opinions that I won’t say.” Hopefully he will keep us updated!
