Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Too Many Lanterns?

Some people don't deal with change very well.

Major Disaster knows that Green Lantern is Hal Jordan, and he wants a face-off with his greatest foe. So he's threatening to blow up a dam unless GL shows up.

Well, Green Lantern does show up...just the wrong one:

See, Hal Jordan recently quit as a Green Lantern (because part of being considered the "Greatest Green Lantern Of All Time" apparently involves being a quitter), and John Stewart has the role.

But nobody told Major Disaster about this "many Lanterns from Earth" business...

Well, let's skip some pointless fisticuffs, and cut to the chase:

Well. the dam accidentally blows up anyway, because Disaster sucks at his job.

And, like some higher-ups at DC, he just can't fathom the possibility that someone besides Hal Jordan could be Green Lantern...


Of course it was all a trick by John. Because some Green Lanterns can think their way through a fight.

From Green Lantern #183 (1984)

Woah, wonder if that's the earliest Dave Gibbons art I've ever seen.

Well...John IS the smartest. Hal would have just used a green boxing glove.
