        God Bendis sucks. I keep forgetting about this. I was recently able to rediscover my love of Green Lantern and it's been an enjoyable journey. A huge part of that was reworking my comic room, getting all new bookcases and redoing all of my displays for everything that I love and collect. Part of that was purging my GL collection of all of the crap I had bought in the last 15 years that I didnt actually enjoy. First off, anything that embarrassed me as a GL fan left the house entirely. If it was red, blue, orange etc, it had to go. The only things I kept were a few Sinestro figures in the yellow costume because he's so perfect, and an Arkillo BAF. Now my entire GL collection fits on 4 brand new bookcases. I can see everything again, and I enjoy going in there and looking at it all the time now. Redoing that room has been my summer project, getting rid of things I dont want while filling it out a bit with some cool vintage pieces. It's all been wonderfully therapeutic.

        As far as the comics go, I'll buy the actual Green Lantern comics as long as DC is serious about them and make them good. But I'm ignoring anything in other titles like team books where writers are adding junk to mythos they know or care nothing about. I dont have the interest in being stressed over any of it anymore.

          Im in the same boat . I feel like green lantern is a dead property now wich sucks because green lantern got me into buying actual comics in 2009. I decided im buying mainly absolute edition 's for certain characters that peak my interest mainly batman and aquaman for the typical well known characters. Hellblazer, anything weird with spectre and the phantom stranger also catches my attention

                When I started this site, there was such a sense of wonder at what the future would hold. War of Light/Blackest Night? The Tygers prophecy becoming fulfilled? Sodam Yat showing up? Then watching Geoff burn it all out by event after event. Then the guy after him just doing the same, albeit somewhat more intelligently. Now I'm glad they're selling well, but the Morrison stuff isn't really doing the necessary repairs that are needed. I appreciate the intelligent storytelling but we can't just pretend it is still 1975.

                IMHO.

                  I never read sandman but i hear people praise neil gaiman so Maybe neil gaiman should take over green lantern? Make it interesting again

                    There's several ways Bendis could've came into the Legion title. Instead of a slow build up he's legit like "It's only 40+ characters, I can reinvent ALL of them in a matter of weeks..."

                    I applaud the efforts of DC to try and make groups more diverse, with most of the characters being humanoid and alien it isn't that hard to push in LoSH. What is unsettling is when you've got a cover that says "Introducing the new Dr. Fate, Gold Lantern, and Monster Boy" then we only get one page of Goldie and none of the others are featured... I'm eight issues in... EIGHT... and I know next to nothing at all about Monster Boy, the new Dr. Fate, the girl in green with a skull face, or Gold Lantern.

                    I think the whole reboot was just barely thought out. Bendis decided like five characters need to be black or brown skinned at least, then the rest are now blue, pink, green, etc. It was made quite apparent how little Bendis gave a shit about diversity when the writer DIDN'T EVEN INCLUDE THE CHARACTERS THAT WERE BLACK BEFORE. Yep, you read that right. Tyroc and Kid Quantum were two characters who might not be as mainstream as others, but at the very least their origins made sense and they already had fans in the Legion Fanboy community. Completely left out at this point.

                    Monster Boy is essentially an alien shapeshifter who can only transform into famous horror movie monsters like Frankenstein's Monster or mythical monsters like Medusa. Why an alien is limited by something on Earth is beyond me and makes no sense, and the Legion already had an alien shapeshifter with Chameleon Boy.

                    The addition of a new Dr. Fate seemed cool at first, but again the Legion already had somebody steeped in mystic arts with White/Black Witch and even she had an apprentice that joined the Legion back in 2015-2016 named Glorith.

                    And when it comes to Lanterns the Legion had plenty of options a writer could've spun. The obvious is Rond Vidar, but anybody who's actually read Legion in other eras could tell you about Kyle Rayner's descendant Cary Wren or a girl who was brought back to life and given power by residual green energy named Celeste McCauley. For Christ' sake you could just make Sodam Yat look younger and he could f***ing do it.

                    Rant over. Apologies LOL

                    EDIT: On second thought, there was one other thing. Out of COMPLETELY F***ING NOWHERE it was decided Ferro Lad was coming back in the latest issue. I'm sitting here wondering when I'll get more for characters like Sun Boy and Starboy... then they smack me with helmet lad. I can only assume Bendis will cherry pick other characters to bring back last minute. This is maddening.

                      I still cant get over how bad this looks. The gold lantern looks like a dollar store toy or a bad bootleg. Also why do i think the gold lantern has a 90's spray tan?
