Default Oh joy! Another Earth Lantern!

Just what we needed, right?

Well, I hope it's the kid lantern that feature in HJatGLC. If they invent another lantern on top of that kid lantern, it's really excessive. I didn't catch the bit about it being an Earth lantern except that it will be on Earth's TT.

Well, the article does say she is from Bolivia, so sounds like yet another Earth Lantern. I assume this is different from the teen GL that was supposed to be part of the new youth imprint? The one who gets the ring his grandmother had? I got the feeling that one wasn't part of regular continuity.

That's what I get for skimming the article and commenting.

So, we could have three GLs who are minors in current comics?

I would say that kids should not be handed automatic rifles, much less power rings. But hey, neither should raging blood pukers, right?

Yea, that's different, the young adult stuff is not in continuity. This is going to be in continuity though I assume she won't be an official part of the corps, since she's hacking a power battery.

What if they use the ring to accelerate their puberty and engage in a relationship with a senior lantern? That's okay, right?

If they're from an alien planet? Sure.

I kid, but Arisia is actually my favorite of Hal's girlfriends. Maybe because it's so messed up.

At least now her character has been an adult far longer than she was a teen in her overall publication existence. Not that anyone does anything with her anymore.

While "Teen Lantern" being yet another new Earth character from west of the Atlantic is insane, for me the news gets drowned in the return of Impulse, Cassie Sandsmark and Kon-El, the latter even being in the original Grummett costume.

Oh, I read everything Mark Russell is doing. If it's Wonder Twins, it's Wonder Twins.

Can't wait for Wonder Twins, Mark Russell and Stephen Byrne, should be great.

Are the Twins getting their own comic? Where's THAT article?

EDIT: Scratch that, I see I didn't read enough into this LOL

EDIT 2: I could've sworn it was mentioned the Milestone characters would be featured in some new material soon and we've yet to get it as far as I know. However DC is quick to promote anything Bendis is involved in, to the point of creating a new in-house imprint for the stable of younger characters, new characters, etc. Why can't they give us a good Static series and promote it a bit better than the last go-round rather than give us stuff nobody's asking for like another Dial H series?! And how is it this stuff gets pushed while properties and concepts that are much more popular sit on the shelf collecting dust?

To get back on the topic of the Teen Lantern.... how does a kid hack a power battery? It's not a phone, or a computer, doesn't have a control panel, and generally just has the one function (powering a ring). It's more like a kid hacking into.... a phone or computer charger. Which is also not possible because they don't have anything other than a single function with no real controls to be hacked.

Looks like DC is gonna let Bendis be Bendis and do whatever the hell he wants despite most of it making no damn sense. His Action Comics isn't doing what they thought it would, why do they think anything else will be a bigger success for him?

^It's true. GLC shouldn't be "hackable" in any human terms. I can see the current excuse for Cyborg Superman doing it, but that's because of his powers.

The teen hacker lantern character is apparently an idea Patrick Gleason has had for a while so when Bendis was thinking of adding a lantern to the book Gleason told him about it.

Was at the Bendis spotlight panel today, a fan asked him about Static being included in Young Justice, he said one of the first calls he made was to the Milestone guys, Reginald Hudlin specifically, about the possibility of including Static but given where those guys are with the Milestone relaunch they weren't comfortable with him appearing in other books.

They just need to jump into the 26th Century with the Justice League story about Earth making its' own Green Lanterns with a Central Power Battery. All new GLs come from Earth. Problem solved.

A teen Bolivian hacker, huh? Sounds like a very "important" Green Lantern.

I LOVED that concept in the last JL series! Think I made a thread for it down the page. The 'Power Plagues', Earth being cut off from the rest of the universe, etc. the whole set-up just worked for me. I always wondered who the last Earth Lantern was who chose to stay with the people of Earth rather than continue with the GLC proper.

And did you catch the "first of it's kind" line when Baz and Cruz were being told about the CPB? That had me thinking another planet had its own Corps as well, maybe even a different color...

The second half of the new YJ just irritates the hell out of me. Wonder Girl is good but the other three are eyesores. Aside from a teen being able to hack into the GL equivalent of a phone charger [and it looks like shes wearing a ring to me...] Jinny Hex being here makes no sense. The concept is interesting but... not for Young Justice. It's a teenage girl with what... good aim and her grand pappy's rifle? On a team with Superboy and Wondergirl and an apprentice of Batman? And IDK what it is about Amethyst but I've never really cared for the concept.

Amethyst and Gemworld was a short-lived alternative world comic (not Earth, but several magical portals to Earth). Amethyst had the gem-color scheme that is obviously going to conflict with the Color Lantern Corps, but they might handwave that.

But yes, this looks like the "bottom of the barrel" Young Justice. Plus...the "other evil Superboy", the half-human, metahuman-hating, metahuman-and-hero-killing, Jon Kent? I thought that plot-line was safely killed off two years ago in the future-jumping Impulse & Teen Titans thread.

That looks dreadful. Even as a kid I would have rolled my eyes at that garbage. They are trying too hard to attract young girls as readers.
