Question Simon or Jessica?



If you had to pick just one of them to carry on in the GLCverse, which one would you choose and why?
Who has more to offer?
Who do you think has more fans?
What could either of them bring to the GLC proper?



I don't have time to go into my choice in depth, but what say the rest of you? This sub-forum is pretty dead other than the Preview threads. Let's hear arguments for these two from the fans and haters, don't just touch on the topic in other threads elsewhere.

I'm Team Jess. GLC benefits from having an Earth girl around. The novelty of Baz has worn off and he served his purpose. Let him go out in a blaze of glory if he has to since he's Geoff's, maybe he dies protecting Jess and she gets some character growth out of the whole ordeal.

It's as legitimate a question as asking somebody 'Hal or Kyle?'

Jessica, not because i like her more or anything it's just cause it's not gay to fap to her ( what you want me to lie and come up with some b/s "nobody got time for that")

If you 'fap' to cartoon pics of characters in comics, then something's wrong with you man. Seven posts in and already the topic is going pornographic...

Right now, I'd give Simon the edge. The current title has succeeded in developing his character in key ways, while Jessica is still in a holding pattern. There are plenty of interesting aspects about Jessica, but they're all being overshadowed by the anxiety facet.

I find Jessica more interesting (though I don't need her), but I'd guess Simon has more fans since he's been around a bit longer and seemed more important to Johns.

I don't know about that in and of itself. If we were talking about Minnie Mouse, sure, that would be pretty sick, but comic characters like Jessica are more or less drawn realistically, often attractively, and there's the added fantasy element.

I don't think fantasizing about say a Michael-Turner-drawn Wonder Woman is all that far removed from fantasizing about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Heck, there are porn comics, which suggests (assuming said comics aren't made primarily for artistic merits) that the practice isn't all that rare.

That said, it's more disturbing that "fapability" would be his main criterion for evaluating a character's worth. It also makes me wonder how he evaluates whether Kilowog or Salaak are better than each other.

Well in my mind... If I were Ion... I'd wager he'd say Salaak because he has more hands LOL

I think long term Jess has more staying power. Baz can only be shoehorned as the main male Earth GL for so long and its time Hal or somebody came back home.

Jessica Cruz has more worth, in my view, and I believe she has more fans, from what I've seen. Simon Baz has nothing to offer, and the sad attempts at giving him something just wind up totally lame. Examples being his gun, his ski mask, and emerald sight. Jessica ... well, at least she's a different gender than all the other Green Lanterns.

I'm afraid I haven't got anything positive to say about what I'd do with them moving forward. I'd just get rid of them one way or another. They're redundant, unnecessary, and I don't think anyone was actually asking for more Green Lanterns.

Like both of them, but would have to say Jessica at this point. The way she has developed from the beginning, is pretty amazing. And the fact that she took on the deranged Momma's boy recently was brave also.

I really liked Jessica's time training with Guy. If that were a focus in a GLC comic proper I'd be down.

^That's a good point. When you think of Emerald Twilight, it's a shame we couldn't get more training stories.

Did you mean Emerald Dawn? I can't recall a lot of training in Emerald Twilight.

I did indeed. That's what I get for writing posts while watching commentary for Halloween III.

Jessica will end up replacing Kyle Rayner -only bc they are both latinos- if we go down this path. Mark my words. I cant stand Baz but Jessica will end up killing one of our boys. There is not right choice here.

Jessica only because I find Simon's brashness annoying, his past stealing cars doesn't sit well with me either. I don't think either should really be toting around a power ring, but if I was forced to chose I guess it would be Jessica
