Brave Friends, Bold Heroes: Hal Jordan and Barry Allen

Posted in flash,green lantern by Podcast on July 9, 2010


Here they are at last, the Brave and the Bold that mostly everyone knows Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. As I talked about Alan Scott and Jay Garrick being the brave friends and bold heroes, Hal and Barry really put friendship in front long before super heroics. If you look at works by Mark Waid or Geoff Johns, Hal and Barry’s relationship has always been the main focal point than being Green Lantern and Flash and their contrast of Hal being a space cop and Barry being a real cop out of costume. Hal’s no fear attitude and Barry’s sense of hope and betterment of others is what has made them such great super heroes together both on the Justice League and most recently in Blackest Night. While, we’re seeing a bit less of the two together now post Blackest Night, since Barry is getting reestablished in his own series and will be the focal point for next year’s Flashpoint cross over story line.
I’m pretty sure we’ll see Hal side by side with Barry as Flashpoint unfolds in the same way that Barry was side by side with Hal during Blackest Night. When Barry was lost during the original Crisis, Hal started drifting, and passed that friendship off to Green Arrow before he was lost as well. Hal needs Barry to be his focal point in life. While Barry needs Hal to be that civilian center. That he can’t always speed through life, he needs to take time and enjoy the world around him and not just do it all for Iris and we’ll see how this thrives going into the rest of the year and into Flashpoint.

Brave Friends Bold Heroes: Alan Scott and Jay Garrick

Posted in flash,green lantern,Rants by Podcast on June 29, 2010

Before there was Hal and Barry, before there was Kyle and Wally there was Alan Scott and Jay Garrick, the original Brave and the Bold. Starting today, I’m going to look at the friendship between Green Lantern and The Flash. While many believe Hal Jordan and Barry Allen to be the true first Brave and the Bold; Jay and Alan were their first. Going back to the early days of Keystone City when Jay first gained his powers and Alan was passing by on his train. The two were fighting the likes of the Shade and the Fiddler before the formation of the Justice Society of America. What was very unique about the two characters at the time is you took a scientist and a hard working union man and made them into very blue caller super heroes of the day.
The two through all their troubles, Alan with his first marriage and Jay dealing with problems having children with his life at such a young age, allowed the two to bound outside the role of capes and super powers. Then when Jay disappeared with Keystone City thanks to the Shade, the Fiddler and the Thinker; Alan did his best to carry on without his friend before ending up in Limbo with the rest of the Justice Society for years to come. Following their freedom from their prisons, the two joined back together and their friendship endured hard times with Jay dealing the Spirit King causing him to murder his fellow Justice Society teammate, Mr. Terrific and Alan dealing the reunion of his two children, Jade and Obsidian, which turned into a Jerry Springer episode for a long time until recently.
Now, the two have worked through some hard times once more to come back out on top and prove to the world and to their fellow super heroes, they are truly the first ones to be known as the Brave and the Bold.

Will we see a Kid Lantern Again

Posted in flash,green lantern,green lantern corps by Podcast on June 24, 2010

It's Kid Lantern


During Mark Waid’s Brave and the Bold mini series about ten years ago. In an untold tale with Wally West during his Kid Flash days, Hal deputized Wally as “Kid Lantern” for 24 hours until his speed powers returned. I was reading some emails the other day and people asked me what I thought about the original concept by Waid and why it hasn’t been used lately (unless you count Bart Allen being a White Lantern during Blackest Night). When I originally read the story, I always wondered why in the last 40 plus years of Teen Titans history there wasn’t really anyone who was a Green Lantern in training on Earth. Out of all various ages and races and sexes of Green Lanterns in all 3600 Sectors of space, there hasn’t really ever been a teenage GL. Wally getting the 24 hour deputizing was just for the story and showed the early building blocks of Wally becoming the next generation of the Flash years later.
Currently, with what Teen Titans has been going through the last few years, the closes Titan who was a Green Lantern was Kyle Rayner but that didn’t last long due to the fact he was part of the Justice League at the time and the Flash was in both books at the time. Having a teenage Green Lantern isn’t that bad of a concept, since we have adolescence Green Lantern running around in the Batman Beyond Universe. The difference between that GL and putting one on the Titans is pretty much experience. The Green Lantern of Batman Beyond is a bit more like the Dahlia Lama; while young he is wise beyond his years. Putting one in training or fresh off of Kilowog’s training and it’s like sending a rookie cop out on a big drug bust on his first day. He might have the training but doesn’t have the experience or the bravo to do it yet. However, it also puts a teen Green Lantern to the most important test but over coming great fear.

Kai-ro


No matter what race you are, being a teen isn’t easy and when you are a super powered teen given the most powerful weapon in the universe. That’s going to cause a lot of angst in anyone. In my humble opinion if JT Krul or any future Teen Titans writer can figure out some great way to get another Sector 2814 Green Lantern around the age of 14-18 on the Teen Titans organically and make it work. Then by all means, bring it on.

Getting Lost with the Main Characters

Posted in flash,green lantern,green lantern corps,Rants by Podcast on June 22, 2010

Running Barry's Shadow


Seems that when you bring a long lost character back from death or limbo, the main star of a book tends to get left in the background or almost forgotten. I know that has been going on a lot in the last two years with John Stewart and Wally West. Well, I know things with Wally might be a bit early but considered how much Barry has been written as being the only Flash that is now back in after Final Crisis and Flash: Rebirth. I see how many people can think that a character is left alone in the dark waiting to be brought back in the light. Let’s face it, not long before Infinite Crisis started; John Stewart was very present with Hal Jordan after Green Lantern: Rebirth. Then we didn’t see really anything of him until Wanted; Hal Jordan and after he was a focus during the Sinestro Corps War and Alpha-Lantern intro story. After Final Crisis, John did a disappearing act until recently.
Now, we see the same happening to Wally, while Jay, Jesse, Bart and even Max Mercury are getting more lime light as of late. Sure, we are seeing Wally show up in Titans and get mentioned right now in Flash. However, we don’t know the future of the speedster of Keystone City. Since so much focus is being shifted back to Barry and Central City. Let’s face it, when Geoff Johns hit the scene what? 7 years ago in Flash, he not only brought Wally back to greatness after Mark Waid left but revitalized the Rogues, made Keystone City and it’s people stand up on it’s own feet and even mentioned how Central City had scene better days since Wally took over as the Flash over 20 years ago.
In a sense, Wally has been given a bit of a rest after so much focus over the last decade, a bit of a break would be fine; however the break time went a little too far. Pretty much leaving him in limbo for over a year so they could focus more on Bart being the Flash, which pretty much backfired, not to mention the build up of Barry’s return over the last few years, Wally seemed to get the shaft. Now, while the new Flash series is only 3 issues in and we already know all the Flashes will get a bit part in the upcoming Flashpoint cross over next year. The fans want Wally, I want Wally, and we need Wally. I’m hoping since all DC books are going to the $3.99 price tag here in the next few months, we get some nice back ups with the adventures of Wally and family followed by some nice Bart and Max Mercury co-features and then add them to main stories when possible. This way, they get their lime light without pulling too much focus from Barry as the Flash gets going the rest of the year.
