    Simon Baz is a Lebanese American hero from Dearborn, Michigan Meet the new Green Lantern, a Muslim-American who wears an Arabic tattoo on the same arm as his power ring. DC Comics is introducing its newest superhero in “Green Lantern #0” Wednesday — and Simon Baz is likely to be turning comic book fans’ heads faster than a speeding bullet. “In general, when you think about Arabs and Muslims in main roles in pop culture, they’re always the villains,” said Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York. “We're always the hijackers. We're always the bad...

    Seeking revenge, author of gay Green Lantern will give Brazilian boyfriend to his heroBy Julio Severo DC Comics writer James Robinson declared that he has received many messages criticizing him for having homosexualized the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, who now is forced to be a homosexual. The strongest opposition, the bitter scriptwriter says, came from Brazil. James Robinson: seeking revenge from Brazilian fans of Green Lantern “The most hostile criticism I’ve received was hostile tweets from Brazil. I had been out and the next morning I was like ‘all right, my liver is murdering me’ and someone was...

    Green Lantern: the homosexualized hero DC Comics falls down before the powerful gay agenda in American cultureBy Julio Severo Green Lantern, hero of comics, has no choice: he will be gay. By the DC Comics bosses’ decision, the hero has to adapt himself to the predominant trends in the American media, whose goal has been to portrait homosexuals in a positive and nice way. Besides, the homosexual way attracts immediate and infallible acclamation from the shamelessly pro-sodomy American media. But the hero doesn’t need to get anguished about his fate. Because he is fiction, he doesn’t have feelings, and...

    When DC Comics relaunched its entire line of superheroes in 2011, big changes were made to their biggest characters: Superman was no longer married to Lois Lane, a secret criminal organization was running Gotham City completely under Batman's radar, and Aquaman finally got some respect. But perhaps the biggest of all the alterations to a DC hero's origin was just announced Friday (June 1): Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern, is gay. First appearing in a 1940 issue of "All-American Comics," Scott was originally introduced as a mystically driven hero who shared little in common with the intergalactic peace-keeping Green...

    The big secret is out. The New York Post is reporting that DC Comics original Green Lantern – of the past 70 years - will come out of the closet as a gay man in next week’s issue of "Earth 2." This particular character, Alan Scott, his alter ego, is being re-woven into the series through obvious agenda politics, but most comic book readers will tell you it is hardly a huge victory for LGBT activists hoping for a gay Superman or gay Batman. Without going too much into the weeds of comic book geek-dom, here are some important points...

    One of DC Comics oldest heroes is super-coming out. The original Green Lantern - a DC Comics' mainstay for the past 70 years - will be revealed to be a gay man in next week's issue of "Earth 2." Alan Scott - formerly a married father of two who first appeared in 1940 - tips readers off to his sexuality early on in the comic when he gives his boyfriend a welcome home kiss. "He's very much the character he was. He's still the pinnacle of bravery and idealism. He's also gay," "Earth 2" writer James Robinson told The Post....

    Green Lantern is a different kind of superhero. Unlike other characters in the DC Universe, he is much more defined by the Universe he exists in than his own personality. Sure, he has the 'reluctant here' thing going on, but that is not the most essential part of his persona. The Green Lanterns, the enemies he faces, and the almost insane, silly and sometime ludicrous nature of the comic books is part of what makes up Green Lantern. And the makers of this film simply did not get that, in any way.

    Apparently, the lantern isn't the only green thing about Ryan Reynolds. The Green Lantern actor has filmed a Public Service Announcement for the Natural Resources Defense Council, urging fans to push their representatives for eco-friendly legislation: “Please tell your senators to vote for clean energy and climate legislation now." Reynolds concludes the PSA by asking viewers to pitch in and help out with the oil-spill ravaged Gulf Coast: “And then, if you can, lend a hand to our friends in the Gulf Coast. After all, they’re the ones paying the highest price for a gallon of gas.” Handsome, talented, and...

    (Miami-AP) December 12, 2006 - The creator of the comic book superhero Green Lantern has died. Martin Nodell, who invented the character that used his magical ring to fight crime, died Saturday in Wisconsin at the age of 91. According to the senior editor of Comics Buyer's Guide, Nodell was looking for a new idea for a comic book when he was waiting for a New York subway and saw a train operator waving a lantern displaying a green light. Nodell imagined a young engineer, Alan Scott, a train crash survivor who discovers in the debris an ancient lantern forged...

    Does a mass murderer deserve a second chance? And what must he do to not only win back his life but become worthy of being called a hero? Comic book readers will find out when DC tries to rehabilitate Hal Jordan, once one of its most stalwart heroes, in the six-issue miniseries ``Green Lantern: Rebirth,'' later this month. Acclaimed writer Geoff Johns (``JSA,'' ``Flash'') takes on the challenge of redeeming the most notorious traitor in DC's vaunted ranks. If anyone is up to the task, it's Johns, who not only has revitalized '40s crime-fighting team Justice Society for a new...

    I thought I would create a harmless post and ask if any of you watch Justice League on the Cartoon Channel? I usually watch it with my grandsons. Last nights episode dealt with the villians using mind control to manipulate the heros feelings towards one another, causing the JL to break up. As usual, as the end, the heroes unite and kick arse. I like a couple things about the episode. At the end, one of the villians goes to punch Batman when Superman appears and stops him. After Batman ties up the villian he begins to say that he...

    Green Lantern Fights Gay-Bashing NEW YORK (AP) - The comic book company that created Superman and Batman has a cutting-edge new story line: a gay teenager is the victim of a hate crime. DC Comics' "Green Lantern" No. 154 hits newsstands in September — with main character Terry Berg beaten almost to death on a street. Terry actually emerged as a gay character in 2001 in issue No. 137, which was cited by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation ( news - web sites) as the year's best comic book. Terry is a sidekick to Kyle Rayner — aka...
