It's still the same sword, but it's usage boils down to proficiency. Like with the creation of Emerald City and even his own answer to having his back broke, I personally think the eventual conversion is a display of his mastery of the Starheart/magic within the lantern.
A response several months later after Alan's been totally rebooted thereby making the point moot? Okay, I'll bite.

Eventual mastery of the Starheart and gaining vast knowledge of the magical forces in the DCU is what changed him from a warrior simply using an artifact into more of a wizard. That and the way he's written among his magical peers.

Y'all realize that "magic" isn't real right? There's no such thing as a "standard definition of magic" or "magic arts". It's whatever any given author wants it to be.

You can call the Green Lantern Corps rings technology or you can call them magic... it doesn't matter because they're fictional things so far outside the realm of possibility that they might as well be "magic".

Same with Superman. And Aquaman. And the Flash.

You can claim "Speed Force = Science" all day long but that's bullshit. The Flashes are magically tied into a magic force that allows them to do things that nobody else can.

That's magic.

This conversation is insane.

This thread continues to get dumber.

Fuck that. There are plenty of conversations that take place on this site that are pointless and dumb but THIS conversation is why kids get teased and picked on for liking comic books. Anybody earnestly and sincerely arguing one side or the other in a conversation like this deserves every wedgie, every locker stuffing and every look of scorn and disdain they've ever received in their natural lives.

Fuck this thread and all who would defend it.

Yo.

oh ok, then allow me to make *my* intentions known:



dude, simply PARTICIPATING ON THIS SITE is the reason why fans have gotten "every wedgie, every locker stuffing and every look of scorn and disdain they've ever received in their natural lives", and to try and claim the above is the reason (even given how geek-tastic & retarded it may be to some) is an insult.

sure, I think Hat is narrowminded & flat-out WRONG in his argument on the subject, but I would never seek to bar them from bringing it up in a respectful discussion, and neither should U.

of course, this convo WAS concluded months ago so THAT point is moot, but still...........

Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems to me that no matter how lame arguing about the magical basis of Alan Scott's power might be, arguing about how lame that argument is lamer.

In fact, I think that should be considered an axiom.

Arguing about an argument is automatically lamer than the original argument.

I would laugh so hard if Scarecrow used this picture as one of his picks for the Villain Draft. He's doing evil clowns.
