Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

171183Hal Jordan is the first human to become apart of the Green Lantern Corps. Hal Jordan then became one of the greatest Green Lanterns next to Sinestro, who later became his biggest rival. Hal Jordan is also a member of the famous super team Justice League of America. The Green Lantern Corps is very similar to the Nova Corps of Marvel Comics. They both are a police force type militia created to protect life in the universe. Which Corps do you think is greater between the two?..

green lantern 6Hal Jordan was worthy of the Green Lantern ring because of his willpower and fearlessness. These qualities also helped him overcome his father’s death, then later becoming an excellent pilot in the Air Force. Fighter Pilots in today’s world would also need willpower to overcome fear in combat situations. The fear of heights, high speeds, missiles and even the high possibility of death during missions.

green lantern 1Those who experience success in any field can be compared to the concept of a Green Lantern officer. Willing a dream into existence takes concentrated focus and overcoming the fear of failure. Look around in our daily lives. Everything is a idea ranging from one individual to several. For instance, a vehicle, bridge, or whichever device used to read THIS blog post, is a physical construct of a designer’s imagination. His or her willpower is needed to take action to make the idea come to fruition. The officer of the Green Lantern Corps must keep his or her concentration at peak performance so that the energy constructs of the power ring will remain strong and unbreakable…

green lantern 9The Green Lantern transitioned from the comic books to different forms of entertainment. This includes the crossover video game: Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe,  the cartoon : Green Lantern the Animated Series, and animated movie: Green Lantern First Flight. Do you think the live action movie was a success? The film gave comic fans fantastic CG visuals of the character and powers at play, but was the actor Ryan Reynolds a good choice? Let’s consider Ryan has played in three Marvel Comic films: X-MEN Origins Wolverine,  Blade Trinity, Deadpool. Will Ryan’s comedic style fit in with the newly established dark theme DC Comics has brought to the movie screen?

Wonder Woman

new wonder womanWonder Woman is among the strongest heroines in the DC Universe. Her powers were granted to her from the Gods of Olympus, which resulted in Woman Woman becoming a form of demigod. Wonder Woman is very similar to Thor; for the reason both characters stem from mythology. Their home worlds in seclusion away from human contact. They also use their godly powers to help humanity as heroes of a super team…wonder woman thorOne major difference is that Wonder Woman’s home of Themyscira is dominated by only women. This could be the major reason why Wonder Woman hasn’t had a solid relationship with men like Superman and Batman.  Wonder Woman finds Superman to be a match for her based on leadership and  superpowers similar to her own. This also creates a level of conflict when both characters have a strong sense of dominance in battle..wonder woman 1.5Wonder Women finds interest in a lone warrior like Batman, so dark and mysterious which becomes intriguing. Not only that, Wonder Woman would give a man much respect for his battle prowess against foes 10 times stronger than himself, without the use of any superpowers. A man dedicated to putting his life on the line for the people of Earth, could build enormous amounts of love and compassion in the heart of the Amazon warrior. This type of love is more than enough to have the Star Sapphire Ring summoned to her every call.wonder woman 3.5Wonder Woman has made her way from the comic book to the cartoon series Justice League. She has now made it to the big screen featuring in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, portrayed by Gal Gadot. Will we expect to see the same Wonder Woman as shown in the comics? A fierce female warrior as well as showing interests with Batman and Superman??wonder woman nwComic Multiverse fan favorite artwork of Wonder Woman goes to deviantart artist; codename: artgerm.

Black Panther

Black Panther is described as the true “Batman/ Bruce Wayne” of Marvel Comics. There was the belief that Tony Stark was the wealthiest in the Marvel Universe, comic fans even matched Tony’s heroism against Bruce in many crossover battles. Black Panther would be a more fitting opponent or maybe prove to be very difficult for the Dark Knight in combat.  Wakanda kings are bred to be warriors, trained in all forms of combat to one day take on the mantle of The Black Panther.

Black Panther’s abilities are similar to Wolverine‘s. Both characters have enhanced hearing, smell, healing and natural night vision. Captain America was given superhuman abilities with the help of the Super Soldier Serum, just as Black Panther was given his powers from a herb which was mutated from Vibranium. Black Panther can best both Wolverine and Captain America in single combat.  Wolverine would be the only character between the three that was born with his superhuman abilities. The costume of Black Panther is made with the Vibranium material as Captain America’s shield. The costume protects the Panther’s complete body making him nearly impenetrable. Adamantium which laces Wolverine’s bones, is stronger than Vibranium. Vibranium is much more valuable because of its extraterrestrial origins whereas Adamantium is man-made. Vibranium is the source of the wealth in Wakanda and is secretly secluded from the rest of the world, much like Themyscira.

Black Panther’s next level of power is considered supernatural. The Black Panther is also known as King of the Dead. The Goddess Bast allows the Panther to control the undead, similar to the Scorpion King controlling Anubis army in the Mummy Returns. Its great speculation if Black Panther could command certain undead figures like Dracula or even have a degree of influence over Spawn. Let’s cross into the DC Universe, could Black Panther potentially become a greater leader than Black Hand? What separates Black Panther’s ability over the undead than the mentioned characters is that his powers was bestowed by a Goddess to protect his people as King. Dracula and Spawn acquired their power from the Devil, which in turn is to be used in service of him. Also with his supernatural ability, Black Panther can receive guidance from the Panther spirits of the past, much like Luke Skywalker learning from his deceased mentors of the Jedi.

In the early 90s, Wesley Snipes began the idea of bringing the Black Panther to life. Complications brought the project to a halt, instead Blade was the start of Marvel Cinematics and with huge success. Captain America: Civil War was the film that introduced Black Panther to cinematic while in the comics, his origins began with the Fantastic Four.  After Civil War Black Panther’s solo release became highly anticipated for 2018 along with Infinity War. How long will fans expect to see Black Panther on-screen? Will he become a major character in Marvel’s cinematic universe or will the Black Panther become short lived?

Emma Frost

wpid-emma-frost-1.png.png

Emma Frost is one of many mutants who has used their powers for personal gain in the world.  Emma Frost used her powers to make herself wealthy and successful in every area she found interest. Now just think, how many people in the world would do the same as Emma Frost? What would you do?

image

Her beauty and abilities attracted the attention of the X-Men and the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Emma was invited to the X-Men to help understand her power and to protect humans and mutants as a hero. As a member of the Inner Circle, Emma’s powers are utilized as instruments to influence the higher society that controls the world. This is the reason why there is debate that Emma is a hero or villain.emma frost 3 Emma Frost underwent a second mutation, her diamond form. In this form, Emma can only be destroyed with a diamond bullet. When not in diamond form, Emma is a powerful telepath on par with Xavier and Jean Grey. Emma and Jean Grey have tension with each other because both are Omega Level telepaths that fell in love with Cyclops. Not only that both females became worthy hosts to the Phoenix Force.emma frost 4 Emma Frost has come to the movie screen in the movies X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men First Class. Even though her abilities and powers were displayed with unique style and imagery, her timeline was far off. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Emma was a young teenager escaping  Stryker’s island with an older Professor Xavier (not to mention Xavier is not disabled). In The First Class, Emma was an older woman, battling younger Charles Xavier and younger Eric Lehnsherr. Did movie producers not realize the mistake in Emma Frost movie timeline?

The Uncanny X-Men

xmen1

The X-Men is a super team in the Marvel Universe, the sector of the Marvel Universe where humans are born with a gene mutation that causes supernatural powers. These supernatural powers creates fear throughout the world, but for good reason. Mutants such as Magneto feel mutants should be in control of the Earth because of mutant superiority. The X-Men are protectors of the innocent (human and mutants) against the villainous mutants and the government.

the xmen

The X-Men was formed by Professor Xavier, who had a dream to help and protect mutants from the world. After years of study, Professor X turned his home into a school where he could teach mutants to control their powers. His combat team is led by Cyclops and Storm, even though Wolverine is usually found in the forefront of them both for his combat experience exceeds them both. Jean Grey is the Professor’s right hand for the fact both are omega level telepaths and in the event the Professor is incapable to use his powers at hand, Jean is his backup. Over the years, the X-Men ranks have changed many times like the Avengers, either through new recruits or old members become solo heroes.

xmen film

The X-Men has accumulated a film series that outranks all comic movies. In this film series fans can see origins of the team and even individual film stories of Wolverine and Deapdool. Bryan Singer is the director responsible for the majority of the films in the series. Even though the X-Men became very popular on screen, many fans feel that a lot of the cinematic timeline of the series was incorrect and not completely congruent with the blueprints of the comic books. Do you think the X-Men movies need a complete reboot or will a reboot taint the established legacy of characters and the actors that play them like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine?

Judge Dredd

wpid-judge-dredd.png.png

Judge Dredd comes from a future world of devastation, a result of World War III. Majority of the planet is a radioactive wasteland while the remaining human population resides in Mega Cities. Lack of resources creates desperation which ultimately leads to increasing crime and civil war. With this increase, Earth governments deploy Street Judges to enforce the law, even granting the power to convict or even execute offenders at the scene of crime.

judge dredd2

Do you believe that our police force could one day gain governmental powers similar to Street Judges? We have lived in the days of terrorism, cities under martial law and even been through two World Wars. Over the years police used excessive force to show dominance of the law to citizens whether innocent or not. Would our world change for the better with Street Judges or will the public feel a sense of oppression and lash out in a rebellious nature?

dreddComic fans love crossovers and battles! The three characters that fans who love to see against Judge Dredd is Batman, RoboCop and The Punisher. Each character operating within or outside the law to bring justice for the innocent, mainly for the reason for having a corrupt judicial or executive system. Do you think Judge Dredd can take down each of these characters one on one? Or would it be a better that these characters band together, defeat The Predator on a game reserve planet or stop a infestation of Xenomorphs from plaguing Earth, as suggested through many crossovers?

pred alien

Judge Dredd has made his way from the comic book to movie screen like many comic characters with the 1995 Judge Dredd and Dredd of 2012. Which do you think was the better version of Judge Dredd and will there ever be a sequel?

The Flash

the flash

The Flash is the master of the Speed Force, which makes him the fastest human alive in the DC Universe. With his super powers, Barry Allen became the crime fighter for Central City. The Flash is also a founding member of the Justice League and a temporary officer for both the White and Blue Lantern Corps.

flash race versus

The Flash is in competition with Superman when it comes to speed. Both heroes possess superhuman speed but Barry’s main power lie within the Speed Force where Superman have a list of powers that are not primarily focused using speed. Quicksilver is a speedster in the Marvel Universe that writers have matched up against The Flash, because of their similarities. The difference between the two speedsters is that one was born a mutant with natural abilities of superhuman speed while the other was created by an accident resulting in speed abilities. With such close comparison, who can really tell the winner between the two.

family tree flash

Just like the Green Lantern recruits of Earth, there are different variations of The Flash. These variations date back to the Golden Era of DC Comics. Alan Scott and Jay Garrick are of The Justice Society of America, then come the younger heroes Barry Allen and Hal Jordan of the Justice league. Since The Flash was apart of the Blue Lantern Corps, could his proteges and predecessor qualify to become the Earth recurits of the Blue Lantern Corps? If so, will they be a match against the Green Lantern recruits from Earth?

flashff

The story of The Flash was explored in The Flashpoint Paradox and the TV Series.  His sleek costume style and super moves were displayed in different forms in Injustice. Fans wondered if The Flash would ever appear in a blockbuster film. The film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will show a brief cameo of the Scarlet Speedster according to insider reports. If so, how will The Flash be introduced in this film and will he ever get a solo movie? Most importantly,  who will portray The Flash in the upcoming films for DC Comics?

Storm

new storm

Storm is an Omega Level Mutant with the primary power of controlling the weather. The manipulation of her powers can be stretch from Earth to outer space. The depths of her powers led her people to believe she was a goddess, sent to help tribes thrive during harsh weather seasons. After being discovered by Professor X, Storm learned to control her powers at a great degree and even joined his X-Men. Her commitment to the team earned Storm the leadership role in Cyclops absence.

new storm 7

Weather is responsible for shaping the planet and way of life. We have even used the weather to harness energy and feed the population. Unstable weather conditions have taken lives, destroyed homes and cities. If humans could effectively control the weather like Storm, we could change our way of life forever. Humans could even have the ability to make Mars a living planet like Earth. Would Storm be strong enough to control the storms on Jupiter?

new storm 2

Thor is another character in the Marvel universe that can control the weather. Because of Loki’s need to test his brother, he influenced Storm to wield the StormCaster making her the Goddess of Thunder. If Storm retains her mutant powers while acquiring additional powers with StormCaster, is she stronger than Thor at that point? With the X-Men series making it to the big screen, comic fans got a chance to see the weather goddess in action. Halle Berry portrayed Storm in the majority of the films series, then Alexandra Shipp played a younger Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse. Is this the last we will see of this character or will there be a new Storm if X-Men was ever rebooted?

Blade

blade1

Vampires exist in the Marvel Universe. From their kind emerged Eric Brooks aka Blade the DayWalker. Vampires are envious of Blade for being a hybrid between human and vampire. Blade dedicated his life to slaying vampires for they are the reason he was created and they are responsible for the death of his mother. With the aid of his right hand Whistler, Blade sweeps fear through the underworld of the undead up to Dracula himself…

image

With all their strengths, Blade is viewed as the perfect vampire. He lacks all vampire weaknesses: sunlight, garlic, silver, and holy symbols. His only weakness is the vampiric thirst for blood. Could Blade have the ability to turn humans into daywalkers?

blade 5

In the Marvel Universe, Blade is found battling/partnering with other Marvel Heroes such as Wolverine and The Punisher. One of Blade’s vampire encounters was with Spiderman himself. The power of the vampire blended with natural powers of Spiderman created a Carnage like menace against Blade. What type of threat would Wolverine become if he became a vampire? Or could he be turned, since he has the healing factor? What of The Punisher? Could he be a match for Blade if he was a vampire or would he fall like many others?

Blade transitioned from the comic book to live action film, portrayed by Wesley Snipes. Blade is Marvel Comics first live action R-rated film. This movie was also was a blueprint to upgrade the character from the 1973 comic book version. In the movie UnderWorld Evolution, Selene is granted the ability to survive sunlight and silver. Could she be a perfect partner for Blade against the undead? Do you think this would be an excellent film featuring these two characters?

Yoda

yoda1

Yoda was widely introduced on film as an old creature training a new Jedi in the ways of the Force. Yoda is notably popular among the Star Wars franchise for his wisdom and backward speech. As the Star Wars Universe expanded bringing forth back stories, Yoda was once the Grand Master of the Jedi Council, the ruling body of the Jedi Order. Yoda has trained thousands of Jedi throughout his lifetime and even inadvertently caused the destruction of his legacy by allowing Anakin Skywalker to become a Jedi.

yoda2

Yoda has taught many lessons about the universe, one being to overcome fear and the fear of lost. Fear leads to the dark side of the force and fear also destroys potential, possibilities, and positive things to happen in one’s life. Yoda taught that embracing change and courage will bring balance to oneself, which also allows the Force to continue its natural flow through all living beings. The law of attraction, which is explained in the documentary The Secret, is similar to the Force and esoteric mentality of the Jedi. What we bring into our lives is the outer manifestation of our inner thoughts, whether good or bad. In the end, we all are connected within the universe by energy or the Force…..

yoda3

Is it possible that Yoda could become a Green Lantern officer or even a guardian? Yoda exiled himself during the Jedi Purge to continue his Jedi training. With training, Yoda is able to achieve immortality by preserving his consciousness and becoming an astral form of the Force. Many comic fans would agree that Jedi would embody the Blue and Green Lantern Corps because of their pure nature within the Force and their misson to protect the universe against evil ( dark side/ sith). If Yoda became a Guardian of the Universe, his powers would increase tenfold and even create an improved Jedi Order that would closely resemble the Lantern corps of today…
