Greg DAE on why Green Lantern Corp’s John Stewart should maybe die.
So the controversy going on yesterday was not the big surprise of Neil Gaiman bringing Angela to Marvel Comics. It was the news of the possible offing of Green Lantern John Stewart. John Stewart, the one black DC character people grew up for a couple of years watching on TV as the Green Lantern on Justice League. Popular to the point that when the trailers for the Green Lantern movie came out, people all over asked, “Huh?! I thought Green Lantern was black!” Due to all the craziness with this news breaking out, DC came out and stated they weren’t going to kill John Stewart. John Stewart, the most popular black superhero in the DC verse (Cyborg and Static arguably being two characters that may actually present a challenge to that notion).
The scene at DC’s offices in New York City this morning was a familiar one: dozens of creators huddled around a computer monitor, watching Twitter and rumor website Bleeding Cool for news of which of them will still be working for DC Comics next month.
