The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse is back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast about exploring the culture created by comic books. This week Robbie and Ben are joined by two special guests: Nick Duke and Greg Phillips, former podcasters and Green Lantern experts. They join Robbie and Ben to talk about the Green Lantern Mythos and the in-development HBO Max Series.
The Legend of the Green Lanterns
Ben invites his two friends Greg and Nick to talk Green Lantern with him and Robbie. One of the things that set the Green Lanterns apart from other heroes, super teams, and families as Nick points out, is that anyone can be a Green Lantern. That there are always thousands of Green Lanterns that represent an unending cast of diverse races, ideologies, and creeds. The cast talks about their favorite green lanterns and some of the best stories for new readers to get into the series.
From the original Alan Scott to the greatest Green Lantern of all time Hal Jordan. The Green Lantern corp is filled with dozens of amazing characters. One of the strengths it has over Batman or Superman is that if you’re not into one character, there are so many others that may interest you. Kyle Raynor, Guy Gardener, John Stewart, or Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz. If you’re not a Green Lantern fan yet, take another look until you find one you like.
The HBO Max Series
The round table of Green Lantern experts also takes some time to talk about the forthcoming Green Lantern series coming to HBO Max. Variety released a statement with some of the plot details of the upcoming series. It mentions how the show won’t focus on a single Green Lantern, but many of them, including new characters. Some of those Lanterns include Guy Gardener, Alan Scott, Jessica Cruz, and Simon Baz by name. It also talks about how Sinestro, the former Green Lantern and one of the most iconic villains of the series, will be featured as well.
The show will focus on the history and origins of the Green Lantern corp. It’s currently unclear if fan-favorite characters John Stewart and Hal Jordan will make an appearance or be referenced in the first season. But the Green Lantern Roundtable doesn’t think that will be much of an issue.
