Green Lantern’s first cinematic outing with Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t the most celebrated film of all time. Consequently, this animated series from Bruce Timm almost fell on deaf ears. Timm and team manage to give us a threat in the Red Lantern corps, but also develop an unlikely and sympathetic alley in Red Lantern, Razor. Razor has an arc which showcases the depth of redemption. Sometimes the allies we need most are the people you least expect. If you’ve seen the series, what did you think of the character, Razor? Make sure you let us know in the comments below.


Green Lantern: The Animated Series explores multiple facets of the DC Universe! Exploring the wide range of the emotional spectrum with the corps. Opening the door to make Atrocious and the Red Lantern the primary antagonists for this first arc.

Timm and company welcome an a blend of world-building, comedy, heart and more. What’s your favorite part of the Green Lantern versus Red Lantern arc?
