> If Cap were to be given a green lantern ring and an hour to practice with what could he do? Well as far as I can tell Drax thinks Cap would be a lamo with the ring. This IMO underestimates Cap and shows a lack of knowledge for the character. If you think he cant do anything of great value you simply dont understand how Cap works. Cap has the ability to master new skills and technologies in short order when he finds them. His adaptability to new problems is one of his greatest strengths. In an hour Cap isnt going to be Hal Jordan but hes going to be very skilled with the ring and can probably boast one of the toughest to break shields ever used by a GL. A shield construct fueled by Caps willpower would be nigh unbreakable, even with a mere hour to use it. If you hate Cap thats one thing but to underestimate his ability to adapt like this is flawed. My whole team was based around several key ideas and your refusal to even grant me this kills the whole point of my team. Well that and your ability ignore that my team would act as a team, you simply reviewed them on their individual power levels. So why do teams if thats all your going to do?
> But I thought it would be interesting to see what the battle boarders at large thought about Cap with a GL ring. Its an interesting idea to say the least. How would he do?
> "I am his will made manifest."
I think Spidey would be a much better candidate for the ring. His willpower is through the roof, and he is extremely creative (invented web shooters at age 15!).
I think Cap would be very similar to Hal Jordan. Very high-end will power, but boring.
