The Complete Green Lantern/Green Arrow Collection by Dennis ONeilIn 1970, while writer Dennis ONeil and artist Neal Adams were introducing a new, darker tone to Batman, they also created these trailblazing stories that took their cues from the hot issues of the day. While battling crime across the country, Green Lantern and Green Arrow also dealt with issues of ecology, feminism, drug addition, and much more. This special anniversary edition collects the entire run of thirteen stories, plus three shorter stories reprinted here for the first time.
To be fair to Warner Brothers, the Screen Rant breakdown linked above does go on to explain that Hal might be in more of a mentor role to rookie Lantern John Stewart, which would explain the casting of year-old Cruise. Still, even if John is a co-lead in the proposed movie—or the primary lead, if they do something like the protege-mentor relationship Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas have in the Ant-Man franchise—this approach to Hal will forever decenter John, or any other POC Lantern they bring in. Hal Jordan debuted in His comics fairly reek with anxiety over the possibility of leveling the playing field. Her professional success is only ever presented by the comics as an inconvenience for Hal; at no point does he even attempt to be happy for or proud of the woman he ostensibly loves.
Quite a good analysis. Also there is the point that everything is new to somebody: A friend of mine has never read this, Manhunter OR Swamp Thing. Geez, some people, ay? As a middle aged guy old enough to have read these at a young age, I truly enjoyed your analysis. Some opinions of my own: The very first story 76 was of course pretty explosive when it hit the newstands in its day.

Even in the stodgy, conservative realm of corporately-run superhero comics there is a good bit of social activism. At the time, they helped set the standard for socially-conscious superhero comics, but that was over 45 years ago. Here, we'll examine whether they're still relevant. For much of the s and s, DC Comics was seen as a fairly risk-averse publisher, churning out inoffensive superhero stories far removed from the day's headlines. The growing influence of younger writers and artists started to change all that. Late in , just before Denny O'Neil and Neal Adams famously returned Batman to his gothic urban avenger roots, each of them contributed separately to a Green Arrow makeover that was even more radical.
