Thumbs down Bendis at it again: GOLD LANTERN

I wondered who the GL looking guy was in the new Legion of Superheroes... he caught my eye from the start with his domino mask. It's not usually the type of mask LoSH members wear in the future. But to find out it's just another new gimmick Lantern?!?

This shit is just getting ridiculous. It's not enough he forced another female GL [but wait, she's not ACTUALLY a GL] into the DCU with his Teen Lantern essentially just combining the better traits of Kyle Rayner and Jessica Cruz together... oh no NOW he wants to make another unique [insert gimmick] Lantern.

So... let's see where we stand now. We got the different ROYGBIV Lanterns, Black Lanterns, White Lanterns, the First Lantern, the Phantom Lantern, a Teen Lantern hacker, and now the Gold Lantern. Twelve different types of Lanterns now aside from the Greens....

Wasn't there a clear lantern or something? I lost interest in tracking the non GL titles that feel they can be free to add to the GL mythos.

It's the 32nd Century. If it's shit, it'll be very easy to ignore.

You might be thinking of the Ultra-Violet Lantern, which is quite possibly the dumbest of the bunch, which is saying a lot. He uses the "Invisible Emotional Spectrum".

Kyle Rayner was also Omega Lantern.

All this stuff reminds me of when Marvel started getting out of control creating new symbiotes like Scream, totally watering down the black costume and Venom concepts.

Hopefully Snyder doesn't continue to explore the Invisible Spectrum, because if we ever see an Infrared Lantern I lose $20 to a nephew I bet with.

Until Bendis takes over the GL books too, post Morrison.

And it'll probably also be wiped out of continuity by the next big crossover event!

Dumb on so many levels. Why the need for the flight ring? If Gold is part of the spectrum (and why wouldn't it), wouldn't that mean that Kyle or Sinestro or anyone who's been a White Lantern would have wielded this light?

I'm not terribly fond that that character strongly resembles my own original character...



Nor am I fond of the fact that Bendis has another black guy with one colored eye and another colored eye.

I don't think this type of stuff all the time or even often, but I immediately know when some of these people rip me off or are at best inspired by something I did, and I usually don't say anything about it, because I know how that will sound, but I think I will change that policy. I would probably let this particular Gold Lantern visual go if there wasn't another black guy with the eye thing going on. But both of them? Nope...



The problem I have with it is...like...you're this big mainstream guy, and you take stuff from like the littlest dude that makes his work somewhat distinctive, so that your work, which, of course, has the larger audience, will be somewhat distinctive. It's just...not something I think I appreciate.

Bringing Bendis to DC has really turned into a wet fart in an elevator all around.

From the beginning it was clear that DC paid Bendis for what he use to be not what he is now.

Let's call Teen Lantern exactly what she is Riri Williams 2.0.
