Redeeming Green Lantern #53
While GL 53 gets jeers for giving us Hal Jordan: Insurance Adjuster, it also brings back one of my favorite characters – psycho Sue!
For those who don’t recall, Sue was a reporter who thought Hal’s brother Jim was Green Lantern. If that sounds familiar, it’s because she was essentially the Silver Age Lois Lane transplanted into Green Lantern comics and pointed at the wrong character.
She was also really, really hard to convince.
Pay close attention – it’s been six months since Hal fled Coast City like a whiny schoolboy, and Green Lantern has been appearing all over the States (plus with the Justice League of America) and Sue still thinks Jim is Green Lantern.
The worst bit is, Jim starts suffering a sort of Stockholm Syndrome.
That last panel gets extra points because it shows just what a dick Hal is.
“Time for fun with Sue’s clear mental illness!”
