Holy cow, that looks crazy.

I've been enjoying GLC more than any other Green Lantern book recently. I think Fernando Pasarin is great. His battle scenes are almost as much clustered fun as George Perez's. Plus he really puts extra effort into the nameless background alien GLs.

Guy and John are going too regret pissing off the Guardians.

I feel so stupid. I just remembered that one of the lanterns of Sector 2814 has to die for the new GL (Baz, I think?) to get a ring! I hope it's Guy. No one likes Guy.

No one is dying...yet. Guy Is awesome! No one likes John though. He is kind of boring and stale.

Yes, because thinking a character is boring and stale equates to racism. I honestly hope you're joking.

Not really racist. Its true. John is actually a very boring character.

Before anyone shouts racist, I'm a huge advocate for Cyborg, Black Lightning, Batwing, Blue Beetle, Elemental Woman and Ryan Choi. I'm not even white. But its true, John is a very very boring character.

In actual fact, i think that taking a completely innocent and character based comment and saying it's racist because the character happens to be African American is racist in itself. Of course, then making a list of non white characters and saying you're a supporter of them could be construed a number of ways. Let's just agree that we all think that John Stewart is boring and stale and leave it at that ;P

If John Stewart could read this argument he would blow up the planet for the good of the Corps.

Lol I was just kidding when I said racist. Didn't think it would spark so much talk.

@mattwing87: John Stewart has a strong following, but the character has been the victim of mostly uninspired writing since his Guardian days.

All John needs is to start sporting a nickname to be less boring and stale. I mean "The Dark Knight", "The Man of Steel", John would totally be less boring if he entered every panel speaking in third person announcing the appearance of John the Planet Killer.
