The four-part webisode “Ring Me Maybe” introduces Jessica Cruz (Cristina Milizia) as Earth’s newest Green Lantern. When Hal Jordan (Josh Keaton) is called to Oa and Sinestro (Tom Kenny) attacks Earth, kidnapping various heroes, a new ring arrives choosing the fearful Jessica as its ring bearer. Initially too scared to accept the responsibility, even running away from the ring, Jessica is eventually talked in to accepting her role and proves to be a more than adequate Lantern by taking down Sinestro by herself while Batgirl (Mae Whitman) rescues her friends. While an unconventional Green Lantern, Jessica is a strong addition to the show’s line-up.

Sent to investigate unauthorized resource exploration in Sector 2811, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner get an unpleasant surprise in running into Zod, Ursa, Eradicator, and Lor-Zod who are strip-mining the undeveloped planet. Oh, and they don’t intend to let a pair of Green Lanterns interfere.

The latest arc of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps has reintroduced the characters known as the Controllers, a faction that split off from the race that would become the Guardians of the Universe. Unlike their more peaceful brethren, who created the Green Lantern Corps to keep order in the universe, the Controllers have a more proactive stance to destroy all evil in the universe rather than simply prevent it. Abducting the remaining Guardians, the Controllers hope to use their shared genetic heritage to usher in a new age of their vision for the universe (even if it means killing of the last of the Guardians to do so).

I may have enjoyed Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 a bit more if the entire story hadn’t been a misdirect. That said, fans of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps should still have fun with the Green Lantern’s return to Earth to investigate Superman‘s recent encounter with Parallax and news that Sinestro is alive in the anti-matter dimension on Qward.

Green Arrow‘s road trip finally leads him back to his former hard traveling companion. Needing help to get into space to check out the Ninth’s Circle secret satellite, Ollie calls on his old pal Hal Jordan. Writer Benjamin Percy certainly has fun bringing this argumentative pair back together for one more road trip.

One step forward, ten steps back. I have to say I’m disappointed in the outcome of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #25. While the over-sized issue itself is fine, although far from great, the build-up to a new day for the Green Lantern Corps working alongside the Sinestro Corps is wasted here returning everything to the status quo.

When a prisoner makes a damning allegation and a startling threat against the Green Lantern Corps, John Stewart is forced to take it seriously sending Guy Gardner and his partner Arkillo into the villain’s stronghold to take down the rest of his collaborators and find this “proof” he threatens to expose if the Corps doesn’t release him.

green-lanterns-2016-24-jessica-2

While filled with appearances by several other Green Lanterns, the focus of Green Lanterns #24 remains on Earth’s two newest ring slingers with Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz completing their training and earning full status as Green Lanterns. For Baz this means putting up with Kyle Rayner, a pretty awful thought (especially when he makes an endless supply of duplicates of himself – the horror!). For Jessica this means besting Guy Gardner which, if your name isn’t Batman, can be a challenge.

While ultimately I don’t think Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #25 quite lives up to its promise, it’s hard for me not to enjoy a comic that so blatantly celebrates the Bronze Age pairing of Green Lantern and Green Arrow. When Mystery, Inc. travels into Karma Corners the group of meddling kids and their talking dog run across a pair of hard-traveling heroes (making reference to Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams famous comic run).

Life for the combined forces of the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps continues to get off to a rock start on Oa during the building of a new Yellow Power Battery as disagreements between the two groups come to blows. The responsibility for restoring order, and acting as the voice of reason, falls to Guy Gardner who manages to keep the peace… this time.
