Batman Is The Best

Hahahahahahahahaha I love Batman’s comments about Hal Jordan – he hates him just as much as I do and that is why Bruce Wayne Batman is my favorite Superhero (Besides Cassandra Cain of course). I worry what that vision was that Hal had – one of the Lanterns of Sector 2814 is going to die? It better not be Kyle. Anyways Krona gets the best of Hal in this and Hal acts like an idiot as usual.

Well the one who has been stealing the entities identity is revealed…and it was someone I didn’t guess and you would think I would it was so obvious. Anyways, this was okay although the whole Parallax possessing the Flash thing was absolutely pointless.

All Hail The Queen

Once again the most interesting stuff about this book is everything besides it supposed star Hal Jordan. Larfleeze and Carol Ferris really steal the show here as the Predator is retrieved by the Star Sapphire and Carol ins named new Queen of the Star Sapphires. I enjoyed all the discussion about the nature of love and what it does to a person. Relationships are extremely difficult and that is why love can become corrupted. This is some great writing by Johns. I still wish we got an actual male Star Sapphire though and not this Abraham Pointe being possessed by the Predator.

Once again the best thing about this series is everyone else but it’s supposed star Hal Jordan – as he continues to be boring but everyone around him is fascinating as hell. I finally can say that I love the character of Larfleeze and his search for Santa Clause was just adorable. Hector Hammond eating the orange power battery was interesting. I didn’t know he could do that. It was great to see Renee Montoya and Saint Walker together too. I wonder how these entities are going to effect everyone near them?

Let’s Stay Focused On The Other Characters

Really Johns? Another Donner Superman reference? Give me a break. We get that you liked the original Superman movie but this is getting out of a hand lol all we had was Lex Luthor and already he is referencing the Donner Superman movie. I liked this issue, that being said, as it focuses on the group of New Guardians. It makes for a great way for Johns nto to focus on boring old Hal Jordan. Didio’s DC Nation at the end of this week’s books explain a lot about why certain characters keep coming back. He is such a douche.

Underground Land

I can’t say that I actually like the character yet, but Giffen at least makes Magog less of a douche this issue. Although I think a true hero would have listened to the villains’ rant to gain information instead of just ignoring him. I guess that is what makes Magog different from others – he is so often focusing on his own thoughts. He is a very self-centered hero. I did like seeing that he is going to look into the nature of his powers and what exactly Magog is. The villain is rather interesting – I wish that we got to hear what he was saying and I like the idea of an underground land for the homeless.

Still Starring A Douche With Horns… But Interesting Plot

I’ll give this to Giffen, he has me interested. I want to learn who these over-people are and what was going on in that city with the zombies. But he still has yet to make me like Magog – even a little bit. He is still a jerk, and maybe that is the point, but I like protagonists to have some redeeming qualities. He thinks he is just too damn cocky to be likeable. Porter does some great art and at least the plot was interesting this time around – at least that’s an improvement.
