Shakes fist Curse you, Al Gore!
Taken from a page of issue 60… Oh yeah, there’s the whole “how did getting the ability to see give the Lamplighter the ability to shapeshift”, but I noticed something else. It took the powers a half hour to wear off… wow, Gloria must have really been concentrating on Ted. Please tell me women really […]
Who is the Lamplighter, you ask? Good question. Let’s look at his origin! Also, yet another example of someone who could have been insanely rich just by using the thing that gave him his powers.
Remember that bubble yesterday? A Green Lantern must be honest and without fear? How’d Hal get the job again?
Yay! Issue #59! The first appearance of almost no-body’s favorite Green Lantern. This cover set the pattern for just about every single Guy Gardner story ever until the late 90’s. For those unfamiliar with the character, we learn in this issue that Guy was the ring’s second choice for Green Lantern. He was just as […]
Hal finally decides to not be a lazy jerk After this… works somehow … we learn why the bear was chasing the kid in the first place: Holy cow – I take back my Objectivist crack. Hal should have let nature take her course. (and for all those wondering – yes, Hal does bang her).
After the Guardians see Hal’s freaky face, they tell him to go on vacation. When Hal Jordan vacations, he vacations hard… Hal Jordan: Objectivist?
Hal is powerless? Must be a Wednesday.
Someone needs to end our long national nightmare of writers making puns of alien names. Now you’re making me hate candy, comic books! Oh this is annoying… a bunch of my images are zero sized files. Ah well, Moving on.
In case you thought the Batman can do ANYTHING concept was new… Oh yes, your simple scientist brain, trained policeman mind, and forensic scientist training is nothing compared to that of Batman! For Einstein’s sake, Atom, show some pride. You invented a fricking shrink ray.
Let’s summon Green Lantern “Sure, the world is in danger, but we’re camping! I mean, finding America and junk.”
Sadly, scene does not appear in actual comic book.
The JLA supervillian The Key has one of the worst costumes and least threatening names of any bad guy out there. Yet several times he does a pretty good job of almost beating the JLA. Like in issue #63. You think I’m joking about the ACLU hating Superman, but then we jump a few decades […]
Using his extensive knowledge of blunt force trauma, Hal knocks out major disaster… “I don’t have to stick it in his mouth, but it’s more humiliating this way”. In case you think Green Lantern is above a little revenge: Oh the smugness… On a related note, I’d like to share an exchange I had with […]
I cheated by revealing that it was Major Disaster, but that’s because I wanted you to see that first. See, in Issue #57, Hal gets too good at the whole “insurance claim” thing. I guess in the DCU meteor insurance is needed, but that thing is moving so slow that he could have gotten out […]
Way back in February of 2011, I covered a train wreck of a story where then-new bad guy Major Disaster got his hands on Pieface’s scrapbook. Instead of using it to blackmail Green Lantern and the Flash, he leaked their IDs to Carol and Iris and Hilarity Ensued. He eventually did himself in. Or… did […]
I’ve been going back and tweaking old posts to match the new site layout and it occurred to me that I’ve never really thanked all the other people who make this site possible. We’re hosted by Nick Kask of Kask Creativity. When I say hosted, I mean he foots the bills too. He also keeps […]
The JLA saves the day! Or did they? Maaaaaaan.
Denny O Neill did some really interesting issues of JLA. Like his GA-GL run, he pitted the League against real world problems like pollution, etc. Sometimes with a science fiction twist and almost always in a unsubtle, heavy handed manner. Sadly, not all the issues I read were scannable, but I did manage to find […]
Oh for the days when Green Arrow had any imaginable gadget in his quiver… An atomic bomb arrow? Indoors, no less? Why would you even have that? How are you guys liking the one post a day format?
Comic book toughs spout some of the oddest lines. The dramatic pauses make it seem like the bad guy caught himself. “We’ll make him hard…(oh damn…that sounded kinda sissy. Quick! redeem it!)..and flat (like on his back? DAMN! Okay, still time to save this…) like a board! (there we go).” Also? What the heck are […]
This page is already exposition heavy, but I love the last panel. Because you know, it’s not like he has a magic ring that lets him do whatever he wants, and that we just saw make a mental radio last issue. Also? Gotta love that “apparently”. What the heck, editor? Are you uncertain? Sorry to […]
You know the one… “What if Hal creates a telepathic connection with Charley Vickers?” “No, that’s lame.” “What if we call it a magnetic connection?” “SOLD!”
So why did Baron Tyrano, the Menace in the Iron Lung (really), split Hal in two? First off… finding a dead body might have brought the police into it? How about shooting off “missile creatures” or jumping Hal Jordan in broad daylight on a busy street? Secondly, if the Baron just wanted Hal because he […]
