There's no point celebrating Green Lantern's 80th year with these elements involved

Heroic Hollywood announced there'll be a Green Lantern special for the 80th anniversary of the whole concept. Tragically, it appears certain creations and contributors are involved:
Details on the story for the DC Comics Green Lantern issue are currently unknown but it will, in some way, pay tribute to every character who has worn a Green Lantern ring, including Allan Scott, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, Jessica Cruz, and Simon Baz. In addition, the upcoming DC Comics issue will be written and drawn by a number of writers and artists including Geoff Johns, Peter J. Tomasi, and James Tynion IV. The upcoming book will also have eight variant covers for every decade of Green Lantern’s history.

[...] In addition to the upcoming comic, Warner Bros. is currently developing a Green Lantern Corps film with Geoff Johns on board as a writer and producer. Full details on Green Lantern Corps are currently under wraps, though the project will draw inspiration from Geoff Johns’ work on the New 52 Green Lantern comics with both Hal Jordan and John Stewart set to appear in the film. Arroverse veteran Greg Berlanti is also working on a Green Lantern television series for HBO Max.
So this'll be featuring a character who was built on the Islamic religion and whose very creation revolves around it? Well, in that case, I can only conclude this special is set to be the travesty it'll be, since Baz shares a lot in common with Kamala Khan over at Marvel, being built so noticeably on the Religion of Peace as a component. And Baz creator Johns' involvement is another reason why I'd rather not have anything to do with this. Why is WB even continuing to associate with Johns after his involvement in the 2011 GL movie did not bring it success? The answer has to be nepotism, pure and simple.

For me, there sadly hasn't been much to celebrate about GL since 1989, because of all the political correctness that brought down a once fine creation. What Johns foisted upon the franchise only made things worse.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
