Making Alan Scott a gay who cheated two women into marriage is beyond disgusting.🤢 This is a superscum, not a superhero. All I can see is the misogyny of the writer.

Are you serious with that last part? " Straight people don't know they're straight until they've had sex"? Lol. Like that happened, EVER. :))

Psycamorean - Mar 5, 2021

My point was that straight people don't have to have sex to realize that they are attracted to the opposite gender, and the same is true of gay people and their attraction to same gender. Maelstron thinks that gay people must have sex to figure out that they are gay. Maelstron is wrong. Maybe that clears it up for you.

Not bad but not excellent either and if we compare it with the price it falls short. It clarifies many gaps and there is also a lot of fillers or characters that do not interest to see a particular audience, it is a way of forcing the reader to buy expensive for one or two characters that they like and have to pay for many stories or characters that do not he was interested.

Now if this more

I stopped reading Marvel for a while and now with King in Black I resumed it and The Amazing Spaiderman reminds me why Marvel has been my favorite, even so I do not want any of the publishers to close, only that I feel a great drop in quality in numbers by DC for a little over a year.

Wow! Just WOW! I wouldn't have thought it possible to write a GL book this badly yet here it is. The 1st and 2nd story are pointless and the 3rd story does little more than serve as an excuse to thrust Sojourner “Jo” Mullein into the main title. Save your money kids.

Say what you want about Morrison but hes having a ball on the main lantern book. Future State was tailor made for great lantern stories. DC blew it.

Definitely a brilliant isuue. However, I have to say the villian turned out to be Hector Hammond is a bit... disappointing. And some content (Vietnam Lantern, Teen Lantern, etc...) echoes the recent shitty strategies of DC is rather disturbing.

Once again DC goes to the well of depowering the Green Lanterns - one of the least compelling tropes for the franchise. The issue starts out without any clue as to what's going on, making the story a jarring start. The writing on the John Stewart story is very weak as well, so it doesn't make a good impression about the guy who's going to be writing Green Lantern post-Morrison. After seeing some o more

Really like the Hal Jordan story and I enjoyed the Titans stuff. I thought the Superman and Green Arrow stories were the weakest of the bunch. I haven't kept up with the Batman family of books so I don't have a real opinion about that story one way or the other. I like the Aquaman story despite normally not liking that much prose in my comics.
