‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’ – S01E09 – “… In Love and War”

Chicks, man.

Here’s how “… In Love and War” is described:

The Green Lanterns save a different type of Lantern from an invading space monster. Grateful for their rescue, the Star Sapphires, whose power comes from love, invite everyone to their homeworld. It turns out, however, that the whole thing was a set-up to drain the Lanterns’ power rings by encasing them in crystals.

I look forward to your thoughts, opinions, gripes, live-blogging, etc.


  1. If I was Carol, I wouldn’t give up the ring! Nor Hal for that matter.

  2. Very good episode. I kind of thought Carol just appeared and took off a little too quickly though. Was kind of hoping she or the other Star Sapphire would have joined Hal’s Enterprise.

    Also, Aya taking the form of Razer’s old love! Didn’t even notice that before!

    • I agree, I didn’t notice the resemblance either. This series has way more depth and forethought than most animated series do, it’s great.

  3. Good Episode. I’m really enjoying Green Lantern: TAS!

  4. This is a really good series. I’m starting to enjoy this more than the comic

  5. Carol showed the maturity that Hal doesn’t have and I liked the way this played out between them. She might have had the power with the ring to help him but none of the training really needed.

  6. What was with Kilowog and that Star Saphire that looked like his race. Was that his wife or what?

  7. I hope that the New 52 reboot will gave way to the revelation that there are also male members of the Star Sapphire / Violet Ring Bearers. I get that Zamaron is said to be like Themyscira – a place where only women exist, somehow – but with their reach galaxy-wide, it’s strange that males are implied to be so widely negated, that only females can harness the “power of love.” If it’s a straight-male-fantasy-thing which the Sapphires are supposed to be playing into, then DC can still say that Zamaron is overwhelmingly ruled by females. But I’d love to see a story where a male Sapphire finds a female (or male) individual who is prime for Violet Ring indoctrination. And now that I think about it, not all life is gender-based. It’d be interesting to see how a neutral gendered species could wreak havoc in a gender-based power ring society.
