Alan takes Grundy into space severing his connecting to the Grey. He also finds out that his own power relies being close to earth and Alan powers start to weaken.

I can't help but be reminded of The Immortal from early Invincible: "When it doubt, throw it into space." :D

I still don't care for the new Grundy, but this is pretty interesting.
Green Lantern comes off pretty dick-ish here, but then again, he does have a fairly good point here. He sort of handled the situation himself and vastly outclasses the other two. I'm expecting the next storyline will see Green Lantern learning the error of his ways.

I wonder if NuGrundy will return from the moon with a NuEclipso in tow.

Wouldn't it have been easier to MISS the moon, and blast him AWAY from the plane of the ecliptic so he's just keep on falling through space rather than end up on the moon to stew?

Not sure this Earth and its inhabitants know about the massive amounts of life out there yet, but one could make the argument that the moon is a more known variable as an exile location. There's definitely no indigenous life there.

Not like Marvel, where you'd be traipsing all over Uatu's summer home and possibly the Inhuman capital...

Not quite the point I was making. Grundy gains his powers from the Earth. Moving him to a relatively close location isn't really removing him from the equation (and endangering any future lunar missions).

Projecting him into the void as far away from Earth as possible works much better as an exile and the void would keep him drifting helplessly (with no means of being able to generate momentum to get back to Earth) for a long, long, long time.

But since everything in space is two miles away in comics, he might end up hitting some other intelligent life. I'm thinking Lantern's thought path was "if I get him away from his Power source maybe he'll die the way I almost did".

I kind of like the significant difference of Earth 2's Green Lantern being bound to Earth, while Earth 1's are all spacey. Alan WAS dickish at the end (loved Hawkgirl's comment!), but, power differential notwithstanding, he'd had a REALLY bad day, so I cut him some slack.

yeah he might be in a lone wolf mode.

"Yes, you saved me, I've already acknowledged that, but what are the odds of that happening again, or of these powers I got just this morning having other vulnerabilities or shortcomings that I know nothing about? Clearly, my ability to defeat Grundy shows that I can handle any and all foes, including the far more powerful ones we already know are coming. Now, granted, I didn't actually defeat Grundy, but the power to relocate a single humanoid to the moon is basically like omnipotence, right?"

And here we are, continuing with the edgy trend of having rude, anti-social, unfriendly superheroes arrogantly posture about their amazing power levels and showing their total ineptness to work in a team.

The '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended, the '90s never ended...

Alright bruh, actually the character isn't that rude, or anti-social (this is a job), hell, not even unfriendly - just being pragmatic with a hint of arrogance, I'm not sure if you've been following Earth 2, but Green Lantern's an alright guy.

Who honestly seems to outclass Hawkgirl and Flash a little too much.

Totally disagree. He was horribly rude to the point of being psychotic. You just don't say that to people - "Form a team? Me? With you? Ha, I don't need you at all." No one is that arrogant except five year old children and professional basketball players.

Uh..um... dear sir, kind sir, you know what the word psychotic means and entails correct? I trust you know what hyperbole means?

----

Now. Let's see what happened to our Green Lantern, within a day -

- Horrible train crash
- Horribly scarred and broken, though healed after.
- BOYFRIEND DEAD.
- Had to learn on his feet and face down an incredibly huge threat level evil.

WITHIN A DAY, how this man is processing is beyond me, but I'll excuse him if he doesn't feel like being around people right now, or better yet, *committing to a team* right now. Especially since there's a whole lot of emotional and physical trauma and hurdles he should probably, slowly, deal through.

Was he rude? Yeah pretty much, but he sure as hell didn't say 'fuck off' - he just doesn't wanna work with them. Obviously - that's gonna change, but for now, while his words are certainly annoying, he gets a pass.

Um, uh.... Yes, I'm pretty sure I know what psychotic entails. It means, merely, "having one of several psychoses." This can be very mild. It does not mean, as you perhaps think, that one is a axe-murdering serial killer.

So then. Your very well written paragraph, especially "I'll excuse him if he doesn't feel like being around people right now, or better yet, *committing to a team* right now. Especially since there's a whole lot of emotional and physical trauma and hurdles he should probably, slowly, deal through." -- that is what a NORMAL person would say. A sane person. One who believed that people are their own entities, and not means to your own personal end. In short that is what GL could have said, if he were not being written as psychotically rude.

Note his reply when Hawkgirl points out that they saved him. He does not reply, "Yes, and thank you again." He says merely that he "acknowledged" that. That is the language of a person who sees others as things to be used, not as people in and of themselves. He then asserts that he cannot be stopped. Sorry, but that's hubris to the point of psychosis.

Imagine that you are a life guard. You have saved seven people and once, with a little help from a co-worker, fought off a shark. Two of your fellow guards -- who have saved zero people -- suggest you work together from now on to scan the oceans. Your response is (a) "No thanks, I can't really commit to that, I just want to be responsible for my own area." (b) "I need to think about that, but for now I'll say no." (c) "No, I don't need you. Nothing can hurt me ever again."

If you said (c), congratulations! You are as psychotically rude as Alan is being written here! Because for someone to say that -- even a being as powerful as GL, since he knows there are others who can harm him -- is totally insane.

No, I haven't been following Earth 2. I have knifes at home, if I want to inflict pain upon myself.

Good to know.

But at least I can tell that you're opinion is just a little knee-jerky and unfounded. Nothing wrong with that, we all do it sometimes.

Gawd, I frikkin' HATE the new character designs. I never thought I'd be nostalgic for the red shirt, green tights, and purple cape with disco collar.

I don't so much hate all of them, but Green Lantern's outfit really does bother me. I think the Flash design is okay, not really loving it, and I actually kind of like Hawkwoman (Or is it Hawkgirl here?).
Green Lantern is really bleh though, it looks generic. And it's all green too, so nothing really pops, maybe if they'd included a little purple or something in his design. And I do miss the cape, people on here have the made the point that it would really go a long way to visually saying "I'm the new Superman."

Purple and green? Hmmm.

Though a cape might've been nice. Definitely not missing his old look though, it was awful.

Well the red's gotta go, it's just too much I think. Purple and green is a tried and true color scheme, admittedly it's usually used for villains, but that could just be a good way to set GL visually apart from the usual red and blue look that lots of hero have.
His old costume was pretty bad but I prefer it to this one, at least it was more distinctive.
And that cape was fantastic, I miss it.

I still have old golden age reprints to look at if I want to read about the real Alan Scott.
