Ever since the reveal that the Green Lanterns weren’t the only Corps extant in the universe, I’ve been mixed on the idea of a rainbow of various Lanterns. Initially, there were clear differences, but over the past couple of years, things seem to have become six armies (and Larfleeze) endlessly clashing in deep space. Don’t get me wrong, I think Sinestro Corpsman Space Ape may be the greatest character find since Robin, and admittedly it is fun to think about which Lantern color Corps you might fall under.  I’m terrible at striking fear, so Yellow is out and I look terrible in a loincloth, which seems to eliminate the Indigo, leading us to today’s chromatic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would say ‘Will’, if it weren’t for my inability to turn down delicious ribs, so I’m going with ‘Hope’, asking: What hue of Corps would be your preferred Lantern color?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Growing up and still being a big fan of Green Lantern, I still think I’d best fit in that Corps. I have no lack of imagination, and I’m fairly certain I have the will (considering all the things I’ve had to overcome in my years of health problems and disabilities). I’m not exactly fearless, but I’m not the type to let fear control me either.


    My friends almost all say I would best fit as a Star Sapphire, despite the fact I’m a guy. They make some persuasive arguments, but I’d need a custom costume rather than one of those skimpy numbers. I don’t think anyone wants to see me in that (well, maybe this one girl, but she’s a bit odd).
