That was such a brilliant take on that guy that I love it.

I'm really digging that Priest is trying different things during his JL run even if somethings work better than others.

This also reminds me of the guy who erased Mr. Terrific's brain because he thought he was an affront to the original Mr Terrific.

These guys are the best villains because they are A) Utterly irredeemable fucks with no redeeming qualities, and B) They are relatable because, as the title says, everyone knows some asshole like this.

You wouldn't think that would be the Tony Scott movie to make a Justice League villain out of, but there he is.

Sorry, you can't do "whiny fanboys complaining about things not being the way they used to be" when Barry Allen and Babsgirl are still a thing. I know that's not Priest's fault, but all I'm getting form this is that people complaining about legacy characters are totally right, it's just people complaining about oversaturation of superhero titles that are the problem.

Not a whole lot familiar with Green Lantern or its fandom but this looks like some pretty heavy Spencer-style strawmanning.

Who is a stand in for fans of the original Green Lantern.

He’s a stand in for a specific type of fan applied to the context of the world that the series is taking place in. Call it a ‘take that’ if you will. Poison Ivy could very well be written as an environmentalist straw man but that would depend on who is writing her. I haven’t seen it happen in any comic I’ve read. The jilted ex bit is way too generic and vague so idg that point.

Yes, it’s an exaggerated caricature of a fan opinion presented in an in-universe context to be knocked over next issue.

Poison Ivy could be a straw man if she’s used to depict exaggerated environmentalist arguments that are set up to be debunked by Batman, but again, I’ve yet to see it happen.

More often than not she’s depicted as being a fairly complex character with legitimate motivations as opposed to a way for the writer to attack environmentalist causes.

Liked seeing J’onn in the flashback. Really hoping we’re building towards seeing him again.
