Being nearly a god will make you do some really foolish things is something we discover on the latest episode of JUST ONE OF THE GUYS: A GREEN LANTERN PODCAST. This week, in out coverage of Green Lantern #149, we see Kyle as the omnipotent Ion essentially render the Justice League of America impotent by handling a massive alien invasion while chillaxing at a staff meeting on The Watchtower. This, of course, raises concern with the Man of Steel, Superman, who has a little discussion with Kyle about what it is to be a hero. More exceptional writing from Judd Winick make this a great read.
Add to that the coverage of Green Lantern: Secret Files and Origins #3, and you’ve got yourself a heck of a show…well, maybe not quite so great as the main story is written by Ben Raab and really does a number on the character of Jenny Lynn Hayden. Plus you get an idea of what Kyle’s “City Dwellers” comic from Feast Magazine would be like, a story about a shadowy agency run by a guy with a skull for a head, and some awkward Who’s Who type entries featuring Terry Berg going through his morning cleaning ritual. Yeah…so that was a thing. But on the upside, I’m joined by my good friend from the shows Parallel Lines: The DC Comics Tangent Universe Podcast and Superman and Batman, Mr. Michael Bradley, and we spend a good amount of time talking about how amazing Superman is in the Green Lantern issue. So, unless you want Kyle to wish you into the cornfield, I suggest you grab your mp3 player of choice, download the show, and start to listening!
