Here's a cool collection of neat quotes from our "Statesman" Lantern. The majority of these are in his Sentinel / Zero Hour younger modes. "I am old school, the oldest school." -Alan, GL#152 "I'm losing control! You saw what happened when Jen lost control! I am a much greater threat than her!" -Alan (under the influence of Brainwave), GL#152 "Show me them BIG guns!" -Alan (taunting Kyle), GL#152 "What's happening? I'm supposed to be young, not like this...not now, please...my daughter needs me. I let her down once, I can't do it again. I have to reach her, she's counting on me to rescue her. She needs a hero...not a useless...old man..." -Alan (seeing an illusion of himself getting old) Sentinel, Hearts of Darkness #1 "God, you are desperately trying to downgrade me to old man status!" -Alan (to Kyle, at Terry's party) GL#140 "Who's the Narc with Jen?" -Terry Berg (about Alan to Kyle) GL #140 "You talk too much." -Alan (sparring with Kyle) GL #140 "You're repeating yourself. And boring me." -Alan (to Wally trapped in Kyle's body) Flash/Green Lantern Faster Friends, pt. 2 "I'm your best friend, Jay. Now, and for the rest of our lives." -Alan Flash/Green Lantern Faster Friends, pt. 2 "The hero is an old man and the wife is a girl. I dreamed of myself and Molly. The sweet past, her face unlined and her body ripe. We struggle, because we are not yet lovers, nor even friends. Even so, when I grasp her there is electricity in the touch." -Alan (having a nightmare before waking up young) GLQ Quarterly # 5, The Dreaming "A stranger is looking at me, a face I haven't seen in decades. So smooth, so vital, so perfect." -Alan (sees himself young for the first time) GLQ Quarterly # 5, The Dreaming "She is beautiful. A harlot, an angel. I can't take my eyes from her. It's what she wants." -Alan (Sees a Harlequin in a diamond purple and black outfit) GLQ Quarterly # 5, The Dreaming "You don't want to be old again. Old and feeble...withering away with nothing but stale memories? Do you want to die a doddering old man's death...while the rest of the world goes on without you?" -Harlequin (taunting Alan with visions of aging) GLQ Quarterly # 5, The Dreaming "If I were the enemy you believe I am, I would already have crushed the life from you." -Alan (surprising Kyle in his apartment in the dark) Zero Hour GL#55 GL vs. GL "The trip through hyperspace can be disorienting. You might want to close your eyes." -Alan (flying Molly through space) GLQ Quarterly, # 3 "You'll explain NOW." -Alan (stopping Hal in his tracks) GL # 16 "Jenny, I'm at the end. Ever since the Starheart turned me into a young man and I stopped being Green Lantern and became Sentinel, I don't know who I am anymore. When I look in the mirror in the morning I'm never sure who'll be looking back at me. I'm barely controlling whatever power is left inside me. Soon, I won't be able to contain it at all...so I came here to wait for the inevitable...I don't want anyone else to be harmed when I...when it happens." -Alan (after Heart of Darkness, about to blow and spewing flame everywhere) Green Lantern / Green Arrow #110 "I'm as old as I should be again. I'd forgotten what arthritis feels like." -Alan Green Lantern / Green Arrow #110 "Nazis. That's what they were. Not much different from the ones I fought in the forties.The accents were different but the hate was the same." -Alan (after fighting terrorist group) GLQ Quarterly # 1 "Not Green Lantern. I willingly relinquished that title along with my ring to Kyle Rayner. I'm starting a new life...reborn by the fires of the Starheart...and I will become it's SENTINEL!" -Alan (post Zero Hour at grave of fallen friends) DC Showcase # 95 "I knew you would come to me, Alan. We were made...remade...for each other." -Molly (the soulless young version that sold her soul to Neron) GL # 71 Hero Quest "Sometimes being cold and hard is what it takes. You draw a line in the sand for yourself, but in the end you need to know when to cross it." -Alan (to Kyle) GL # 71 Hero Quest "I'm a superhero. The supernatural is not really my thing. But nobody does this to my hometown." -Alan (destroying demons with his own demons) Hell's Sentinel / Underworld Abyss "Dosen't seem to have a weakness to wood anymore." -Alan (burning a wood dagger in his chest) Hell's Sentinel / Underworld Abyss "Look at you...not a gray hair anywhere. You don't belong here!" -Jay (a false Flash Alan battled, created by Harlequin) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "You're just so ruthless, aren't you? Different from the rest of us now. But that's what it's all about, right? Turning your back on the past." -Harlequin (desguised as Jay, taunting Alan) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "We can live any life, any adventure. All you have to do is pick one. I can make anything real with my powers. Choose a world, and we can be lovers away from this mundane reality." -Harlequin (to Alan) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "Didn't put up much of a fight, did she? Heart probably wasn't that strong." -Harlequin (to Alan, after attacking Molly) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "I can be your woman. You're going to leave that old husk, now that you made yourself young." -Harlequin (to Alan) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "You only think you know who I am. But all you know is what you want me to be. I'm no puppet. You want to be at my side? Learn what it's like at my feet!" -Alan (creating a version of himself as a hell lord with Harlequin as a slave) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "Oh Alan, I bet a handsome young devil like you says that to all the girls." -Molly (to Alan after being restored) GLQ Quarterly # 6 "I can't believe my dad's in better shape than I am." -Obsidian (on seeing Alan young for the first time) GLQ Quarterly # 7 "The Starheart is composed of all mystical energies, both dark and light forced into uneasy union." -Torquemada (to Alan) GLQ Quarterly # 7 "Oh, I know you WELL, Alan Scott. Part of my being has already suffused you, responding to your subconscious desires for youth and power. It is the might of the Starheart...MY might..that suckles you. It is the Starheart that taints you, drives you to grim thought and deed." -Starheart (in his earlier, horsefaced version with wings) GLQ Quarterly # 7 "Yes, come to me, Alan Scott. Armored in your rage! Give vent to the darkness in you that is ME!" -Starheart (waiting an attack by Alan) GLQ Quarterly # 7 "You've won nothing save your own death!" -Starheart (after rupturing Alan's heart with magic) GLQ Quarterly # 7 I'll add a few more later from the Fate series with Jared Stevens. As you may have noticed, Alan's character is all over the place! A lot of inconsistency with what you see now. GLQ Corps Quarterly is a great series that has well done stories. Also, Issue 7 has a LOT of history on the old lanterns, the guardians and the Empire of Tears. Also a lot of backstory on the Starheart, showing his earlier version.
