Then, Hank Henshaw, the Ravagers and Eon battle the Green Lantern Corps on Mogo for the fate of the universe! (In other words, it's Tuesday.) Hal Jordan has had enough of this Man of Steel knockoff, so he's seeking out the former Cyborg Superman with the sole intention of handing him his butt! However, Henshaw's ability to hack the Corps' power rings may give him all the leverage he needs to take over the universe.

    Issue 55 of Green Lanterns is a great read which irons out the wrinkles in the previous issue and lines up the big conclusion to this series! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 19, 2018

    The only real problem with this issue was the lack of Simon Baz. As one of the main leads of this title before the other Lanterns joined in, Baz was becoming a very strong character. Hopefully this isn't the trend and he and former co-star Jessica Cruz won't continue to be slighted. Otherwise, Jurgens is handling this ensemble book nicely with encouraging signs that it's only going to continue to improve. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 10, 2019

    I've definitely been enjoying this action-filled arc for Green Lanterns since Jurgens came on but it's also fairly clear that it's light in terms of story and character. At most, we've had some good stuff for Baz as he was manipulated and a bit for Jessica as well, but there's not much here beyond that. Which is fine because sometimes you just need a good action arc and Jurgens is delivering it. I do wish we had a consistent art team for it for the run but each one we've had has been solid and this is what happens with bi-weekly books. Mike Perkins does a great job here and I really like the look of it overall, especially with Hi-Fi's color work. Read Full Review

    A better issue than before, but my feelings about this arc remain the same. More Cyborg Superman and Mike Perkins are please. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Anthony Thornton Sep 19, 2018

    I loved this issue. Not really any other way to put that. Cyborg Superman is a fully fleshed out villain and one that needs to be taken more seriously. The artwork pulls you in and refuses to let go. All I keep thinking is how can the Corps possibly stand a chance with the wielder of the Phantom Ring? Well the stage is set for Hal Jordan to do what Hal Jordan does best as he may be the only one who stands a chance against Henshaw. Read Full Review

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Sep 19, 2018

    Green Lanterns #55 is an action packed issue that spends a lot of energy bringing everyone together as Dan Jurgens gets ready to bring this series to a close. While we get more reiterations of the story of how Cyborg Superman outwitted the Corps than we really need, the issue does a fine job in getting the plot where it needs to be. Read Full Review

    GREEN LANTERNS #55 continues "Evil's Might" with a penultimate issue. Hank Henshaw's plans finally come to fruition, although writer Dan Jurgens can't seem to stop explaining them to us. Read Full Review

    This arc's been a bit up and down, but thanks to Hank Henshaw the story is on the upswing. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 19, 2018

    Jurgens is delivering an exciting finale to this title before Grant Morrison takes over, but it's a far cry from the unique runs by Humphries and Seeley. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Sep 25, 2018

    The villains continue to have the upper hand as "Evil's Might" continues. The Green Lantern Corps is divided and the Corpsmen are bickering amongst themselves. The Guardians have been once gain haunted by a sin of their past. Will the reign of the Cyborg Superman being, or will the Green Lanterns regroup and take the fight to Cyborg Superman?

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 19, 2018

    While you'll get a decent dose of action in this issue, it comes at the cost of things being forced and characters and things acting against how they usually act.  If that's something you can deal with then I'm sure you'll like this issue....... It is probably the best we've gotten in Jurgens' run so far, but I'm still looking for a bit more out of this arc....... like for everything to make sense. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Christiansen Sep 19, 2018

    While Green Lanterns #55 does make it's villain out to be more intimidating, the lack of any clear motive ultimately causes Hank Henshaw to be forgetful. Meanwhile, the continued progression of Jessica Cruz is admirable, yet poorly timed and out of place. Read Full Review

    Same can be said for the entire corps turning on one of its members. Both Jessica and Simon have been on the opposite end of allegations from the corps to the point where I wonder if any of these characters should even be in law enforcement. This issue did nothing to elevate or innovate and it felt like a retread of previous arcs. Even the great art by Perkins couldn't save this issue from the "been there, done that" pile.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Sep 19, 2018

    I suspectthis will all build up to the forthcoming TheGreen Lantern title, which suggest there will only be one. Perhaps theothers will have be killed, and if so, it wont be long before Hal tries tocreate a new Corps. Read Full Review
