Green Lantern Medical Corps Tops My New Comic Wish List
The Green Lantern Universe is PERFECTLY situated for having a strong female lead character. I mean we've seen squirrels, bugs and large alien blobs join the Corps. And although we do have several strong female Green Lanterns, I would argue that none have really broken through the glass ceiling. I realize that's a very debatable and subjective statement, and I'm sure the Boodika Fan Club will take offense. But in my mind, the Green Lanterns from Earth always lead the way, and they are all guys.
Then I found this really interesting pitch about a new comic book that not only would provide a new and interesting look into the life of the Green Lantern Corps in general, but also provide for a Green Lantern Comic Book with a female lead. It's called the Green Lantern Medical Corps, and I really like it.
So here's the pitch:
Who would become the members of the Medical Corps?
Is a GL Medical Corps Ring different than an ordinary GL Ring?
What happens when a Blue Lantern assists the GL Medical Corps?
How will Sinestro react to his daughter’s new initiative?
How does the White Light effect the goals of the Medical Corps?
How do GL Medical Corps members deal with intergalactic cultural issues, and what role do they play in times of inter species war?
These questions and many more could be answered by a Green Lantern Medical Corps ongoing series and to me would make for a very interesting and different take on the Green Lantern franchise.
What do you think?
