What is Love? A Quick Dissection of the Relationship of Hal Jordan & Carol Ferris


It’s not often Carol Ferris is the star of an issue of Green Lantern. It’s not often that Hal Jordan spends a lot of time with her. These days he’s off being the great hero that he is and she’s…well, she’s whatever the latest writer wants her to be in that moment. Depending on what fan you talk to, that may be for the best or insanely frustrating. I’m pretty firmly on the latter side, however I want to take a look at the relationship between these two characters and put it under a microscope. How does it hold up compared to other hero/civilian relationships in the DCU? I’ll answer this question and some others that help me decipher these two characters, all while getting the opinions of comic creators to see where they land. Join us as I ramble on about your favorite test pilot and his boss.

Top 10 Biggest Moments from Ron Marz’ Green Lantern Run


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:

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.

Justice League: Mortal Script Review

Written by Eric Cahill


A few years back, rumors swirled that DC was just going to go ahead and do a goddamn Justice League movie. At some point they hired a director, hired all the actors, and spent millions getting it going (mostly due to legal stuff that is incredibly shady but still). But it seemed absurd! It seemed like it was created with the sole purpose of getting the attention of fanboy blogging and entertainment news soundbites. No way was this ever a project that was actually happening, no one was having these meetings, it was all some Bizarro PR campaign to promote Common’s album, who the hell knows. Of course, the project really was happening (until it suddenly wasn’t) and somehow the script really was written (and recently leaked). And believe it or not, it reads exactly as a script produced for a completely fake and completely weird PR campaign would read. I honestly couldn’t even have imagined exactly what that was until, Shazam, I read it. Let’s dig in. Spoilers ahoy.


What Does Forever Evil Mean for the Future of Green Lantern?


Our pals over at Collected Editions discovered a gem of a quote from DC Comics’ Co-Publisher Dan Didio about how the “Forever Evil” tie-in stories will be collected. As you know, excluding Earth 2‘s issue, the spotlighted villains during September are Black Hand, Mongul, Sinestro and of course the newly created threat that is Relic. Find out what Didio said and how it relates to the future of our favorite lanterns.
