Overview

In effect cosmic police officers responsible for protecting the universe, the Green Lantern Corps is an organization numbering in the hundreds of members, with each Lantern assigned sectors of space to patrol. First introduced in the 1940s, Green Lantern is one of the original superheroes of the DC Universe-with three generations of fans-and his popularity continues today. Hal Jordan, the most famous of Earth's modern-day Green Lanterns, is currently the lead character in the DC Comics limited series New Frontier, written and drawn by red-hot artist Darwyn Cooke. Jordan also "guest-starred" on an episode of the Cartoon Network's Duck Dodgers animated series; his voice was performed by director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back). The original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, is a featured member in DC's bestselling JSA series. And John Stewart, the first African-American Green Lantern, is a core character on the Cartoon Network's Justice League animated series.

Book 2: Will stars Alan Scott, revealing how he came to have his power ring and how he uses his powers to fight evil. Scott fights in World War II as both an enlisted man and as a costumed superhero. He must also fight a 17th-century super-villain: an anti-Green Lantern named Malvolio, who wants to take over the world! To this end, Malvolio decides to cut a deal with Adolf Hitler himself-a deal that endangers the entire Allied campaign in Europe and the Pacific. But Malvolio's plans do not stop there. He is determined to eliminate the entire Green Lantern Corps, destroy Earth, and decimate all other worlds that have ever had the protection of a Green Lantern!

    Alan Scott Rules!!!

    Well I just got done with this book..It was not as good as Book 1 but it was close...A combo story of the retelling of Scott's origin with a taste of WW2 story made this book an enjoyable read..Hopefully ther with be a book 3 Featuring Hal Jordan next..
