The End of John Stewart Week

And so, we draw to the close of our homage. I think that we can all pretty much agree that John is pretty awesome, albeit in a low-key sort of way. It's nice that they are actually using him more, since he has this habit of being criminally overlooked by some of the writers sometimes. It's a good thing that he's so reliable, and willing to jump into any storyline at any time.

And finally, let us not forget, that John does have this habit of being underestimated, a habit that he's managed to turn into an asset. Remember in Rebirth, when he manages to take out the ENTIRE JLA by himself? Including Superman? Granted, he was being influenced by Parallax at the time, but still! It was amazing!

He's also managed to exceed the willpower limits of his ring, in his continuous attempts to reassemble the lost planet of Xanshi. I don't think that's ever happened to any other Lantern. He was handpicked by the Guardians to become a Lantern, and he even achieved Guardian-like status of his own after Mosaic, although that part of his history seems to have been quietly brushed under the table.

It's funny, that the more I think about the various Lanterns, the more that I like them. I still think that it is one of the greatest concepts in comicbookdom...there is just so much that one can DO with the idea of Cops-In-Spaaaaaaaaace...armed with magic rings, limited only by their imaginations and their fabulous behinds.
