First thing first: I never knew who the author was, and never really cared, until I read this. I absolutely love the Green Lantern, being a superhero that was given powers, as compared to those that were born with it or needing gadgetry (like Batman or the Green Arrow), and used it to the world’s benefit. Of course, he had to because of the responsibility placed on him, but also because of the fact that he has to account to someone… although not unlike a certain world leader.
Nodell was not the original author, or the ‘inventor’ of Green Lantern (although he is credited as the creator), but did contribute significantly in his progress. Green Lantern of today(on Justice League on TV) is a African-American man (almost all the others are caucasians, there is one Martian) that had tackled much sensitive topics.
Kudos to you, Nodell. May the Green Lantern’s spirit live and infect the world.
