JUSTICE LEAGUE EUROPE - NO 38 - MAY 1992
Also likes scifi, cartoons, musicals, writing, admiring beauty in all its forms, and just... well. Learning things! Knowing about stuff! (Hence the blog title.) Full fandom/ship list available above.
My queue is always on - if you follow me, expect to see 4-8 things a day that I like, in addition to my tl;dr Opinions on Everything and tag-only Rant Posts.
Specifically the idea of ‘hope’.
It doesn’t mean sitting and waiting for something to happen. It’s not about passivity.
Hope, in the way the Blue Lanterns treat it, is greater than willpower.
Look at it like this. Batman will never give up. That’s hard. That’s what it takes to be a Green Lantern. But he doesn’t do it smiling. He does it for Justice, for Vengeance, not for the future.
Stephanie Brown will never give up, and part of that is her belief- not only that the world will survive- but that things will get better. That she can make things get better.
That isn’t blind optimism. Characters like Steph and Saint Walker know about the darkness. They look at it and they make themselves see a way through.
And that takes work and strength and ferocious dedication.
When Blue Lanterns say ‘All will be well’ they don’t mean that they’re going to wait for it to happen. They mean that they will make it be well.
In short; hope doesn’t exist in someone by itself. It takes willpower. Every Blue Lantern could be a Green Lantern, but they have something more.
The Blue Lanterns are the fucking masters of the universe, is what I’m saying.
“Valkyrie” part 1 of 4! When Lois Lane accepts an assignment outside of Metropolis, she gets more than she bargained for. Follow the Daily Planet’s star reporter to the Congo as she investigates the Angel of the Plateau. It marks the debut of Lana Lang in the Smallville comic!
THE HAIR TIES ARE EVEN THE SAME
GUYS IT’S BB STEPH
