Well the gun could just be a hint to his past and not something he actually uses. Be interesting to see where this is headed as seems to play a part in the upcoming trinity war.

I think most people got that from the post earlier on, buddy... :/
RunDTC - 6/11/2012, 3:36 PM
shouldn't he have a towel on his head?
SHHH - 6/11/2012, 3:44 PM
Anyway's.........
dmadtroll - 6/11/2012, 3:54 PM
first the gay, now this shit. wtf is wrong with DC destroying GL's character?!
mithiama - 6/11/2012, 3:55 PM
he is an arab with a tattoo meaning bravery. my guess is hes either a former taleban or a soldier from an arab country. either way the fact that ppl are complaining isnt going to matter because from what ive learnt if geoff johns has an idea abt writing something especially a character he created its gonna be amazing.
Tomontherun99 - 6/11/2012, 3:57 PM
It's an interesting idea bringing in an Islamic hero after Nightrunner disappeared into the depths of the New 52. I guess DC are now trying to expand their minority groups through the Green Lantern concept which is actually pretty clever. The Green Lantern/Arrow comics of the 70s were known for tackling race relations and all kinds of subjects, John Stewart was one of the first major black comic book characters that gained mainstream recognition. Plus the most obvious reason is there is a corps of over 3600 aliens, varying wildly from each other so the GL character is a great way to showcase diversity as shown by Alan Scott of Earth-2 that may not be a member of the corps but still has the emblem. Sorry for the mini-essay.

i think its logical that dc finally decided to create earth lanterns from another place besides america i really hope they do the same thing with a female from an arab country for the red lanterns maybe taleban destroy her village and kill her daughter or whatever and then she gets a red ring and kills them all.

Tomontherun99@ Damn good point.
venom2019 - 6/11/2012, 4:31 PM
He might be a former-con or former gangster.
venom2019 - 6/11/2012, 4:36 PM
What bugging me is why is there another Earth lantern i thought GL rules was 1 lantern to 1 sector (which was later changed to 2 GL's per sector) but we all know why there 4 Earth lanterns so why would the guardians make another?
Knightrider - 6/11/2012, 4:39 PM
@Venom2019 Well from what we have heard he refers to himself as "The Green Lantern" and others rumors are he may have been the first.
kevberg - 6/11/2012, 4:47 PM
wow...cliche, racist and pissing on the GL........great job DC.
kevberg - 6/11/2012, 4:56 PM
Heres a revamped 52.....out the gate they introduce a new GL whos black. what do we do? Design him with a dumb looking luchadore full face mask, very late 80's fingerless gloves, oh yeah he must have a gun because GL's all have those...no wait they don't so why does this guy have one? Is it because he's Black?....no ..no they wouldn't do that....

oh wait...he might be a gang member...umm... again......so automatically the African american GL is gun toting ( former ) Thug?


well lets be really keen and progressive and make him muslim......



real original guys....stay classy.
kevberg - 6/11/2012, 4:58 PM
Y'know..as opposed to an honorable character like Stewart.


reignSupreme - 6/11/2012, 5:15 PM
costume looks ok but why does he have a gun
typicalfanboy - 6/11/2012, 5:32 PM
well if it truly is a NEW green lantern, then it's not john stewart. he's already been introduced in the new 52, as himself, basically.
mgeoff88 - 6/11/2012, 6:06 PM
I'm all for diversity, but not when it isn't done right.

This character is a walking cliche of a stereotypical criminal. The soul patch isn't helping either.

I think the character is actually Middle Eastern not black. And why would would he even need a gun with the GL power ring? It doesn't make any sense.
xStarLordx - 6/11/2012, 7:26 PM
Why are they always changing and screwing with GL?
Altair - 6/11/2012, 7:28 PM
What is this? Why?
Moakynubs - 6/11/2012, 10:00 PM
Maybe it IS Jon Stewart, just with a new tattoo! In cannon he's never really been part of the JL or anything like that, right? Maybe he's new to the earth hero thing.
ISleepNow - 6/11/2012, 10:07 PM
That's nice, now all they have to do is make Him gay too and they will have appeased all politically correct faggots everywhere
TheSoulEater - 6/11/2012, 10:16 PM
@VenomSpawn

LOL pretty much
Jer3miah - 6/11/2012, 11:04 PM
So, a black guy with a gun automatically means he's a 'gangster'? Lol, you people.
CraptainAmerica - 6/12/2012, 2:04 AM
I would put a shit load of money on it bring Stewart. He's facing SPOILER death penalty at the moment in 'Corps'. 'Green Lantern' is full of ex-convicts. This is probably just his return. Nothing sinister or new.

And where the hell does this photo tell you he's Muslim? The worst observation I've ever heard
mob7medina - 6/12/2012, 2:06 AM
why is he even carrying a gun if has a GL Ring?and this just looks cheesy and ignorant as frick..
Tevii - 6/12/2012, 7:59 AM
Cracks me up all the jumping to conclusions. We dont know how this character plays a part. So no you dont know if it a stupid idea or a racist one or anything.
pre-judging morons. Wait to read it, then pass judgement. wtf is with some people?
This guy might be part of the Guardians new army or WHO KNOWS... Batman doenst seem to like him much already so he might not even be a good guy. WAIT AND SEE
xStarLordx - 6/12/2012, 8:49 AM
@CraptainAmerica Look at his arm genius.
SuperFrost - 6/12/2012, 12:40 PM
WHY? I get it... he's a con that converted with the nation of Islam in prison. It's the first issue so he doesn't realy know that his ring has powers and it's not just bling. And he's about to rob Batman.
mob7medina - 6/12/2012, 2:58 PM
@SuperFrost lol @ "Hes about to rob Batman."
EarOne - 6/13/2012, 4:34 AM
if he IS a muslim, he WON'T be wearing a GL ring. he just does NOT believe in anything else, BUT Allah, the single GOD.
RunDTC - 6/13/2012, 12:42 PM
@EarOne: smh.....
Manogeek - 6/14/2012, 7:02 AM
@Superfrost is probably closest with the prison part. Middle Eastern Muslims don't believe in getting tats its against their teachings. He could be a man who went to prison, joined the nation of Islam, and was chosen worthy by the ring. But it is all speculation and wild guesses because we are all going off of a picture. We don't know if it's stereotypical, racist, lame, or what until we see some panels and even then it is just opinion. And to those bitchin' about why does DC keep messing with green lantern, because it's theirs to do with as they please. There are over 7200 lanterns in the corps so guess what, they'll all be different. And Alan Scott isn't even that type of green lantern. There are gay people in this world, there are thugs, and there are suburbanites. They all deserve representation.
NextHero08 - 6/14/2012, 8:03 AM
John Stewart dont hide behind no [frick]in mask, THAT HAD BETTER NOT BE JOHN, HE IS THE MOST BADASS LANTERN THERE IS!
Butchest - 7/3/2012, 11:33 AM
