Sinestro question

#1 Posted by Namor1987 (2096 posts) - - Show Bio

Is it just me or does SInestro bear a heavy resemblance to the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler of WWII?

Sinestro, leader & founder of the Sinestro Corps & former Green Lantern

Sinestro is too much of a goon to be associated with Hitler the balls*ck.

The character is based on the appearance of David Niven. However, the Sinestro Corps uniform, if I remember the Newsarama interview from 2007 correctly, is somewhat inspired by the Nazi style of uniform.....because Sinestro rules his Corps as a dictatorship similar to Hitler.  Since the SCW though, I always do see more Hitler than Niven, but that may be due to the suit and interview than his face.

it must be because they both have dumb mustaches

One's tall and slender, the other short and stocky. One has a long mustache, the other a very small one. One has his hair slicked back, the other parted on the side and hanging down his forehead.
Oh yeah, it's like their twins.

Sinestro's misunderstood, not a murdering psychopath.

@yahweh: He just wants peace and order through control, if anything Thaal as misguided as he is admirable. Hitler was Batmansh*t crazy, anti-semitic, racist, and did I mention goddamn Batmansh*t crazy?

Sinestro is, like, SEXY compared to that ugly, jew-hating, Satan-possessed midget!

Do you know who Hitler was?

Sinestro is based on the classic gentleman of the mid 20th century where the pencil moustache was a sign of sophistication. I always thought he was more a Basil Rathbone villain type
