  1. Exactly! The gun is gonna need to be explained. Otherwise I’m interested in this guy and what will he bring to the table. I cant decide which cover is worse this one or the latest Ultimate Spiderman where he’s in handcuffs. SMH…

  2. I don’t care if he’s black, I want static and terrific back and we don’t need any more green lanterans maybe we should have blue lanteran on earth don’t care what races he/she is.

  3. He’s Arabic from the middle east. He was created in response to an outcry that Geoff Johns received when an Arabic character was killed within eight pages of Aquaman #7. Since Johns writes GL as well, he figured “why not create an Arabic GL to quiet that man”.

  4. If thats the true reason he came about, its gonna be hard for me to give the character a chance. I’m with yall though, I want terrific and static back but with writers and artists who care. It seems like they were destined to be cut. Im still buying Batwing wonder how long he got left.
