Reading two green books today… Immortal Hulk #20 and The Green Lantern #9, they seem to merge together slightly. While in Immortal Hulk #20 by the superb continuing team of Al Ewing and Joe Bennett, they elaborate on previous issues tying in the nature of gamma radiation with magic, what might be going on. You know, as told by Bruce Banner's father in hell. So, you know, your mileage may vary as to the veracity.
But did anyone wonder just what Grant Morrison may have been intimating in today's The Green Lantern #9 with Liam Sharp? Ewing is publicly a great admirer of Morrison's work – could this have been a reach back?
You don't just pull gamma out of your comic book arse. The Green Lantern's powers have also often been referred to in magical terms – the original Alan Scott version, the idea of a wishing ring etc… and now Hal Jordan is fighting evil wizards in swords and sorcery lands. And after all, the parallel dimensions of the DC Universe are also at play…
He's from Earth 20. Could the dial be turned up even further to 616?
