Default New Green/Red Lantern Guy

IDK how I feel about one Earth GL going Starlord, another going and getting seemingly killed, one being trapped in another dimension, and another also being in the trapped dimension but with two rings. I dig that Guy finally got a haircut and a shave, and in standard GL colors his new suit would be slick. The lines on the green torso though serve no purpose without it being a vest like the old one. Reds could be a little darker, looks too orange to me. But what do you guys think of this new status for Guy?

Enough of multiple rings, and other colors. I just want them all gone other than green and yellow. Everybody keep on their own side of the fence from now on.

And Guy should go back to his classic costume. The design itself isn't bad, but the red looks like tomato soup. Also the old GL vest costume is much better.

I don't mind this suit being a more streamlined version. But the lines need something to make them valid. I'd remove them all together, make the Reds white and the boots green and maybe move the symbol a little closer to a badge placement on his left pectoral. The art here is gorgeous. Almost makes me not hate the design.

I think the red looks bad. And the rings should be green, except for one yellow one.

It just doesn't work. Should have just kept Guy red.

Christmas Lantern has a thread already.

Anyway, it's a story point. It won't last forever and I'm willing to see what will develop. The costume is fine for me. It will make a good Christmas variant.

Johns didn't do GLC. That was Tomasi.

I like Guy the hybrid Green-Red Lantern the best, especially as he was in Blackest Night.

When I look at Guy with two different color rings I'm reminded of the Superman Red and Superman Blue thing from the 90s. Just cheesy and trite.

This is the Guy they should've went with if he was to wield a red ring...



If THAT Guy had got a monthly, I'd have been all over that.

If Lost Army had that version it'd be reason enough for me to buy it monthly. LOVED the crazier Red Guy.

Yeah, but it's kind of hard to do that one ongoing. What would the GLs chain him and take him around like a feral dog?

Guy's red ring could be like the whole 'in case of fire break glass' situation where he only uses it when the GLC is stuck in a corner.

Hey.... do you guys remember when wearing a Red ring replaced your FUCKING HEART and taking it off would kill you and the ONNNNLY way to recover was a magical bath in lake Mogo or some junk like that? And the reds were basically mindless rage zombies hell bent on revenge for some horrible injustice?

Remember that? When it was actually a thing that came with consequences and not some prize you found at the bottom of your sugar cereal garbage comic book stories?



I do.

Fuck you guys.

Doesn't sound like you remember it THAT well. It took a blue ring to purge someone of the red energies. And the blue rings coupled with a Star Sapphire's ring was what brought Kyle back to the land of the living. Any lake Mogo shit must've been since the New52 started or mentioned in passing during War of the GL's ending.

And the neutering of the Red Lanterns is nothing compared to how Larfleeze went from being a f***ing beast of a character into a f***ing joke.

Blue Ring.... Lake Mogo.... whatever....

Point is ALL of the non-Green Lanterns were always going to just devolve into being basically Green Lanterns with different colors. Sure there are tiny little details like teleportation, or blood spitting or power boosting that each color retains but BASICALLY the Lantern Corps are just like the Mutants in X-Men now.

They're all split up into their special little clubs but they all basically do the same thing... fight each other.

Well, they didn't have the Guardians to fight any more, did they? And showing them fighting each other all the time was easier than making up different antagonists for them in changing scenarios, wasn't it?

I thought all along that this was a gimmick with a short shelf life, and a failure of the imagination rather than an epic triumph that would stand for generations, and when I didn't get with the program and said that on other boards, the more clear-sighted accused me bitterly of "hating Geoff Johns."

I've read the entire Lost Army series and I'm still not clear on what that was about. To be fair, it was funny for me when John asked Guy if he was the Christmas Lantern.

He had one of each ring and when they charged with the old-universe power it split.
