Read full description of the books Green Lantern: Πέρα από το Φόβο:It’s a fairly difficult task to find a Green Lantern title at the local library that isn’t tied into one of those laborious events (“Blackest Night”, “Brightest Day”, yada yada yada) or has the New 52 stamped on its cover, but I did it. Somebody at the library obviously slipped up.
Hal Jordan’s back.
“Hey Hal, you’ve been gone a long time, like years. Where’ve you been?”
So, he pals around with Kyle Rayner.
“Hey Kyle, can you grab us a couple of beers from the fridge?”
Long pause. Kyle drops head and shoulders start heaving. He softly sobs.
“What, too soon?”
So Jordan’s back and his days as a galactic mass murderer are safely behind him, so what’s up?
Oh, it’s only the Manhunters. “No man escapes the Manhunters.”
Of course not. Look over there! It’s a puppy!
Intergalactic gremlins who speak German and they’re bent on re-tooling some of Hal’s old enemies as a welcome back present.
First: Shark, uh, Guy.
Anything in the water would normally be Aquaman’s purview, but he’s probably rounding up giant mutant sea horsies (Yippie Ki Yay) or taking a nap.
Next: the Black Hand
He sucks the life out of people and gives Hal a case of the “feels”. One huge giant green-handed punch later…
Finally: Creepy telepathic Hector Hammond, who plays Nudge Nudge with Hal.
Hector has an oversized head and he’s locked away underground, but he still knows what the Teutonic gremlins are up to, so he’s willing to trade information for a peek inside Hal’s memories.
“Got any memories involving redheads, Hal? I lurv me some, redheads.”
“All you get are dinner and drinks memories, you big-headed perv!”
Bottom line: DC offers up an origin story for Hal, but they cruelly left out one of Anne’s favorite characters: Pieface.
Pieface? Huh? Jordan you insensitive, racist bastard!
Cue panel of Jordan’s plane going up in a flame ball, followed by panel of Pieface whistling and tossing some important engine piece into the trash can.
This would be a decent gateway story for those who know little about the Green Lantern, unless you watched the Ryan Reynolds movie, then you have my sympathies.
