I’d like to start by saying that in the comic world, there are generally two types of fans. Those that love DC, and those that love Marvel. Yes, I know there are many other publishers out there, but even those that love one of those others, do love one of those two big companies more than the other. In my case, I’m a DC man. At least I was, before all this New-52 nonsense started in September (which I’ll get into later). I don’t mind Marvel, and do try to read their stories, but my favorites come from DC. Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, The Atom, The Justice League, The Justice Society, etc. etc.

For some time now I’ve been in somewhat of a debate with a good friend of mine (for now he will remain nameless, but I have a feeling he will make himself known soon enough in the comments) about the Green Lanterns of the DC Universe. For those of you who do not know, the Green Lanterns are an inter-galactic police corps that patrol the universe. Of their ranks, arguably the most well-known member is Hal Jordan. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen the movie this past Spring, or at least heard about it. Hal Jordan is a test pilot, a notorious playboy, and a fearless member of the Corps.
