So how unstoppable would Batman be with a Yellow Power Ring?

Batman can't handle yellow. The vaguely yellow muzzle flash from the gun that killed his parents cripples him to this day.

Some time ago I saw a page of comics on the internet. The Kents in smallville are murdered by some kind of criminal who escaped from jail. I can’t find that issue though. Does anyone know that elseworlds?

The only one I can think of would be the sequel to The Nail. I think it's called Another Nail. Kind of iffy on that one though.

In The Nail and Another Nail, Superman is raised by an Amish couple. I don't think the Kents are actually in either of those

In the first one he is and they get killed by *somebody* and then he moves in with the Kents by the end of the story and in the sequel he hangs out with them and Lois to figure out how to live a normal life.

Are you sure? It's been a long time since I've read either, but I don't recall the Kents ever being in them.

They ran a haven for powered people since the government was rounding them up.

Really, I honestly don't remember any of that. Been quite a long time, though.

Dumb question. Throughout Geoff John's run on GL, was it ever explained in detail how the Rings and Lanterns of each corp were created?

Did they just materialize from the specific emotion of each founding member (Sinestro = Fear, Atrocitus = Rage etc...)?

They all made them. Mainly due to the Guardians making having made rings for their GL Corps. They were just biting the little guy's style. Personally, I think they shoulda went with different kinds of jewelry. Maybe a Tiara for the Star Sapphires. Or a medallion for the Red guys.

Honestly, the whole things iffy. Willpower isn't an effin' emotion.

I think that some grills would have been great for the Red Lanterns. I don't mean no George Foremans, I mean these.



That way when they scream at you (which they do a lot of) the'd fire out the puke and energy beams too.

I liked the translation I read somewhere better where it wasn't emotion but state of being.

Well, Willpower ain't a state of being either.

It's something you have not something you feel. Like Intelligence.

Justice League 41 has been released, but Hal has his original GL attire, Bruce is active and Superman has powers…how can this be when Hal is a renegade, Bruce is a new god and Superman has no powers?

Do we just ignore continuity?

I think it's been said that Justice League will more or less exist within a bubble (at least until event time, I'm sure). I don't think it's so much ignoring continuity as much as operating under the assumption that it takes place before, after, in-between the other events in question. Pretty sure it's still a canon title.

In post-Convergence, story now trumps continuity. And it's not just on the JL book...

Quote:
“In this new era of storytelling, story will trump continuity as we continue to empower creators to tell the best stories in the industry,” DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio says in a press release announcing the June launch, which follows the company's two-month break for its line-wide Convergence event.
http://www.newsarama.com/23456-dc-re...book-line.html

Quote:
We're really asking the creators to put story and character first, and really focus on canon more than continuity. Continuity is, this is where this character was today, and this is where he is tomorrow. Those are things that sometimes I think the readership gets too concerned about it, and it starts overshadowing what we're in the business of doing, which is telling stories. So by focusing on canon -- which is the stories that matter, the best stories that we tell with these characters, they get elevated, and that's the history we want to create with these characters.

He put one on to defeat Power Ring, couldn't handle it and got bested by the unwilling, weak-willed, pussified alternate universe version of Hal Jordan. Luckily Sinestro shows up to get his ring back and saved Batman.

Have there been any references to No Man's Land since the New 52?
