Hi, all. Quaid here with a look at the newest DC animated feature film, The Green Lantern. First Flight.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m not very much of a comic book guy. I’ll read the occasional graphic novel and have picked up a comic once or twice, but most of my superhero knowledge comes from animated series and movies. Please don’t stone me.
So my first exposure to the Green Lantern was in DC’s excellent Justice League: The New Frontier. Of all the new characters I discovered with that movie, Green Lantern was by far the most interesting. I love the idea of the epic and powerful superhero, and his powers seemed very familiar but, because they stem from the ring, more defined and interesting than some other heroes.
I love what DC is doing with these movies. I’ll be seeing this one as soon as I can.
