    From the team of Minh Le and Andie Tong, Green Lantern: Legacy is a cosmic adventure that's equally grounded in a story about Asian-American identity, family legacy, and the ongoing clash between traditional culture and sweeping modernity.

    I'm saying this as an Asian. The writer has no respect to the Green Lantern lore and clasic characters. He just uses the Green Lantern franchise as a shortcut to fulfill his self-insert. The story is not about Green Lantern. It doesn't have to be a Green Lantern story either. I hope the writer knows that replacing the classic character with your creation is not going to make fans happy. I hope DC knows how to manage and protect their franchises and characters. Because this book does more damage than contribution.
    John Stewart's mentor is not your grandma. It's Katma Tui, his love of life. Coast City's Green Lantern and Sinestro's archenemy is not your grandma. It's Hal Jordan, the greatest Green Lantern.
