There are many other G super heroes that I would put here before Green Lantern

A few of them listed with their main  reason for exclusion in bold  are:

Green Arrow Duplicates Hawkeyes abilities
Goliath Upsets balance between Marvel and D.C.
Groot I've never read a comic book with Groot in it, only know him from movie.

I did come this close to replacing GL with Jim Gordon.  I'm glad I didn't.   In reviewing all the different characters who have been Green Lantern over the past 75 years it became apparent to me that there is  no other super hero quite like him.

  1. Yeah! Here's one I read!. Silver Age Green Lantern. I suppose that dates me. :)

  2. Is Green Lantern the one that's scared of the colour yellow? I can never really view him a super hero for that reason

  3. green latern is a favorite of mine. and green arrow. my only exposure is media and not comics though.
