 We're finally back for Part 2 of our Green Lanterns Character Corner. This time we talk about the aftermath of Hal Jordan destroying the Corps after becoming Parallax. Kyle Rayner becomes the loan Green Lantern for a while and...he's pretty good at it. We also check in on where Hal Jordan, John Stewart and Guy Gardner are and what's going on with them.
 
Then we get to the Geoff Johns run. First with Green Lantern: Rebirth (the first one from 2004) where Johns brings Hal Jordan back and expands the mythos of Parallax. We cover all the way through the Sinestro Corps War.
 
We'll be back for a final part that covers the War of Light, Blackest Night and two additional Earth Green Lanterns.

Kriss and Dpalm are back for the second part of our Heroes for Hire Character Corner. You can find Part 1 here.

In this part, we talk about Danny Rand, Iron Fist, and the badass Samurai, Colleen Wing. We start right away addressing the elephant in the room: The cultural appropriation/white washing with Danny Rand and Asian culture. Yes, Danny should have been Asian American. Period.  With that out of the way, we go through some of the early years with Danny which are pretty well done and build a pretty good story. It also introduces us to Colleen Wing and how much of a badass she is. We end with Fraction/Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist run & the new The Living Weapon run

He's the best there is at what he does and what he does isn't very nice. Our massive Character Corner on the X-Man named Wolverine.
