    Nice to see a kid getting the chance to ask a question as opposed to comic books guy.

    Awesome. It makes me kinda sad how “mature” comics have become these days.

    That’s a great moment. Apparently it continues with Reynolds singing a copy of GL: Rebirth and giving it to the kid. and getting him backstage to meet him.

    This should be a reminder to the older fans (especially the more cynical ones who aren’t necessarily old).

    End of the day – it’s about the kids and letting them enjoy the wonder that is colorful costumes, capes, heroes, villains, secret oaths, fantasy and adventure.

    I could only imagine how ugly this would have been if he didn’t know the oath or somehow messed it up :P

    I love how the kid holds up the ring after as if to say “hey you forgot this part” :D

    When he recited the oath it reminded me of Stewart Smalley.
