‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’ – S01E12 – “Invasion”

I feel like Mogo should win every fight except against Galactus. And carbon dioxide.

Here’s how “Invasion” is described:

Hal and the Green Lanterns travel to one of the Ancient Wonders of the Galaxy – the Lighthouse – so they can seal off any path through The Maelstrom and prevent the Red Lantern armada from getting through.  Atrocitus, the Red Lantern leader, sets a trap for Hal and manages to steal the ship so that he may finally have his vengeance on the Guardians.

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


  1. Excellent episode. Paradigm have shifted. New powers emerge. Timm and company deserve a lot of credit. This is unlike any other superhero cartoon in tone and style. Star Trek meets the DCU

  2. Huh… Well, Hal lost. I, for one, welcome our new Red Lantern overlords!

  3. I just started reading anything related to GL and and was wondering if Razor was created just for the cartoon or has he appeared in comics prior the premiere Green Lantern TAS.

    • Razer is just in the cartoon. He has not appeared in the comics thus far.

    • They’ve also changed the Red Lanterns quite a bit in the show. They’re individual minds, coherent and logical (that last point is debatable…), so whether we see any Red Lanterns in the comics, besides Atrocitous, that shows complete control of him/herself, then who knows, maybe we’ll see a Razer type character.

  4. This show just kicks butt seven ways to sunday. Loved seeing Atrocitus’ strategy, and Aya everything, as well as the awesome Saint Walker subplot. I wish last summer’s GL movie was this!
