Writer's Block: Heroes and villains

Who was your favorite childhood superhero, and why?


Who was your favorite childhood superhero, and why?

Green Lantern.

Why?

  • The Ring That Does Anything You Can Imagine.
  • Being part of an interstellar community dedicated to saving lives, preventing disasters, helping people, and, oh, yes, maybe fighting crime here and there.
  • This:


... oh, and even though Hal was the Main Green Lantern throughout my '60s and '70s childhood, he was never my favorite Lantern. I encountered John Stewart early on, and Alan Scott later, and, of course, all of the myriad alien GLs.

"The one True Green Lantern" so beloved of the fanboys is my least favorite ringslinger.
