Adapting an established comic book character for the small screen is challenging enough, so what’s it like adapting an entire world of them? Difficult, but if tonight’s new episode of The Flash is any indication, it’s also a crazy amount of fun.
DC Comics’ beloved oath-saying hero is turning 75 this year, and with a monthly series of comics still on the shelves and a new movie arriving in time for his 80th, it’s clear that the character is still running strong. However, it’s not hard to forget that much of what we associate with Green Lantern—the oath, the Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro, the constant space-faring—didn’t arrive until much later. Heck, even the most well known Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, is but a mere 56 years old.
