Subj: Anyone read the Green Lantern/Star Trek Second Crossover?
Posted: Wed May 10, 2017 at 08:03:47 pm EDT (Viewed 614 times)

Just curious if anyone has read it.

I thought it was a decent enough crossover.

Anyone going to the Planet of the Apes crossover?

Anyway, some brief thoughts.

-Carol Ferris being in love with Scotty seemed forced and out of place. She's Hal's girl not Scotty's.

-Puzzling why there is a need for a part II. Then there's the end where it suggests there might be planned part III. Meh.

-Hal and Kirk fly to a system with a Red sun. This implies Krypton exists and...Superman? As cool as it would be to see Superman meet Kirk, do we really need to see it?

-Atrocitus was treated badly in this crossover.

-I find it very strange that the Guardians, and Oa, and the Manhunters, already exist in the Star Trek Universe. Or even the implied Krypton along with Kryptonians. But whatever.

-The writer of this crossover obviously has no idea how Red rings work. The moment Khan puts on that red ring, he should have become a brainless animal of rage. Instead, he retains the ability to speak...meh.

-James T. Kirk AKA Green Lantern. LOVE IT!

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
