DCU Vol.9: Green Lantern Corps by alexmax DCU Vol.9: Green Lantern Corps by alexmax
Here are some of the most prominent members of the Green Lantern Corps, or the Green Lanterns from Earth. In case you are wondering where is Kyle Rayner, he is my favorite of the Lanterns, so he is on to bigger things, like being in the JLA lineup! You'll notice most of these Green Lanterns are misssing their white gloves, I've never been a big fan of the white gloves. :P

You could, in theory, make hundreds of lineups like this just with Green Lanterns! Don't worry, I wont... but I might do 1 more.

Hal Jordan: Despite what Geoff Johns would like us all to believe Hal Jordan didn't have graying temples because he was possessed by Parallax... truth is the gray hair was a visual way to represent he was older than the other superheroes after Crisis '86. I think this was so DC could keep the "Hard-Traveling Heroes" era in-continuity beyond 1986. That's why Oliver Queen is (or was) also considered an old guy by other superheroes. Well, "Rebirth" was all a major retcon. Hal as Parallax was not really evil (all the time), just crazy. In fact, he was downright heroic during the Final Night storyline. Oh well...

John Stewart: Made him pretty much 100% as he appeared originally in the Justice League cartoon, look which was later "ported" to the comics almost exactly the same. Bruce Timm apparently must not like the white gloves either.

Guy Gardner: Speaking of gloves, I tried not to give him the white gloves, but in this case, the bulky gloves (and boots) and the silly sleeveless jacket are too important to the look of Guy Gardner... modern haircut! no bowl cut!

Jade: She is one of those characters that has had a dozen or more different outfits, so I tried to make one that represented them all, by picking and choosing what I liked from all the different uniforms of Jade's past.

Arisia: Minor tweaks to her uniform, again, when it looks like it's a good idea, I try to make my own take on the characters.

Kilowog: It's Kilowog, without the white gloves. :B

Ganthet: It was going to be one of those unnamed generic Guardians, but then I added a ponytail.

Hope you all like this! :)

Flash: we could use more power. Earth has a third Green Lantern, Guy Gardner.

Hal Jordan and John Stewart: no.

Flash: but we could use the pow

Flash is cut off.

Hal Jordan and John Stewart: No.

Why not the white gloves? No other superhero has them.

I don't know, I just don't like the white gloves. It doesn't help I associate that look with Hal Jordan.

I hope you do another Lanterns pic showing the other corps. I would love to see one with Atrocitus, Sinestro, Larfleeze, Saint Walker, Star Sapphire, Indigo-1, and new Green Lantern Simon Baz

Hmmm, you know, you are not the first to request me to do some of the rainbow lanterns. I'm aware they are very popular, so I kinda feel bad ignoring that quite a few people would like to see those characters. The problem is I really can't bring myself to do those. Not a fan of the post Identity Crisis DC-anything. Sorry :(

P.S. Considered doing Siniestro a couple of times in the past, for one of the villains lineups, if I do another one of those I'd certainly include him.

I understand why Bruce Timm and Co. had to include John and Hawkgirl in the animated series, otherwise it would've been just 5 white dudes, a woman and an alien. Not much diversity there. I agree with you that the John Stewart in the show was cool, they even had to make the one from the comics more like the one from the DCAU.

Me? I prefer Kyle Rayner, I liked the idea of an inexperienced superhero brushing elbows with Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Made for interesting group dynamics.

if by poor you mean I left him out of this lineup, well, I felt like he deserved to be with the JLA, the first of these lineups to be done, and quite frankly JLA>GLC. Kyle is the best GL :)

Ahem... I have this to say.

In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might... beware my power, GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT!

XD Love that creed.

Also, this is just something that was brought to my attention by cracked.com... Hal Jordon, Arisia, FOR SHAME on both of you being in a relationship together at one point! Comic readers know why!

I like your Ganthet, actually I like the Guardians in general, but your design of Ganthet is rather nice here

Thanks. :) With Ganthet I was able to push a little bit further into the cartoony side, because of his proportions.

I can see how that would work, given how the Guardians' heads are disproportionately larger to their bodies than human head are

Si bueno, el peinadito era aceptable en los 80, pero ya para los 90 ningún adulto andaba por ahi así.
