Beware My Power? More Like Beware My Movie

Green Lantern: Beware My Power is a movie set in the same new universe started by Superman: Man of Tomorrow, and was continued in other films like Batman: The Long Halloween.

In this movie, John Stewart (voiced by Aldis Hodge, who will also play Hawkman in the upcoming Black Adam movie releasing in October) is a former marine with PTSD. However, seeing a spaceship crash on his way, he sees a guardian of Oa, and a ring scans him and makes him the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps. The ring, which demand John call it Ring, takes him to the Justice League Watchtower, who learns the ring was formerly Hal Jordan's, causing suspicion in members Martian Manhunter, Vixen, and Green Arrow. Now, John and Green Arrow are tasked with going to Oa, as Martian Manhunter believes John receiving Hal's ring has something to do with an emergency they are watching, they are joined by Hawkgirl, a Thanagarian warrior who seeks vengeance against those who killed millions of her species, causing the three to team up to find who is responsible behind the murder of both the Green Lanterns and Hawkgirl's people, facing villains like SInestro and John learning of his new powers.

Okay, after seeing this movie on Blu-Ray, it's not the worst, but it's not good either. While it is a good change to have a Green Lantern movie with John Stewart (past movies with the hero were about Hal Jordan), the plot is not at all good, as it tries to fit in too much backstory plot into it (John's PTSD kicking in, Hawkgirl's backstory, etc). I do like how John is portrayed as a former Marine with PTSD after seeing his squad gunned down in a conflict, and even going as far as to use characters like Adam Strange and the Sinestro Corps, but sadly, they are bogged down by horrible writing (although the voice acting is okay), and the finale is the absolute worst, with a twist about a certain hero I won't spoil. Beware My Power? I say Beware This Movie and stick to Green Lantern: First Flight and the old Justice League cartoon with John Stewart.

What a waste (beware, major spoilers)

Like most DC animations the animations were fine.

With a few tweaks the story would have been okay, but the way they treated Hal Jordan is pathetic.

He is force fed Parallax (looking like some evil caterpillar) and he becomes completely evil instantly, not fighting it on any level.

That famous Green Latern willpower nowhere to be found.....

And Sinestro instantly falling in line, calling him master?!

No, just no.

Very unworthy of the Hal Jordan character, hell, not even worthy of the Sinestro character!

The Animation is the best part of this mess.

Used to be when a new DC Animated came out, it was usually fine. This one isn't. Aldis Hodge, who's a fine actor, sounds like he's asleep. This isn't John Stewart's origin, it's a mish-mosh of bad ideas. Hal's just a creep. Sinestro is weak like this story. Also, as DC has been doing for what seems like years cinematically, apparently they are also going to undo history and replace all the Caucasian male superheroes with either minorities or women. This woke crap, part of apologizing for things no one was alive to be part of, is going to ruin everything. Kill Hal, bring in a dull (if you want an excellent John Stewart, go back to the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoons, back when DC/Time Warner knew what they were doing) Green Lantern (the attempt at showing PTSD was a good idea) and just pick a few characters at random to throw in. Truly a bad movie and I'm glad I didn't pay to see this.

You ignorant loud mouths only shame yourselves when you open your mouths and give your opinions on things you obviously don't know about. Jon Stewart as a Green Lantern has been around since I was a kid watching JL in the late 90's, he's always been black.

This movie spit in the face of Green Lantern fans. The fact that they made Hal evil for no reason other then to kill him off was upsetting. Sinestro was written out of character, John lacked emotion in his voice. The writing was lazy and poorly done.

While John Stewart is not my favourite GL, I am not as ignorant as to say this is WOKE because of his skin. Please guys, be aware that there are many GLs from earth, Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Jessica Cruz (Yup, a woman), just to name some. So PLEASE, Know the story before you attempt to criticize, after all, GL corps is all about diversity.

Good thing that everyone who's complaining about things being 'woke' has never seen the Justice League animated series, or read any comics and is just using the term 'woke' to say "why are there black people here?" Your racism is showing, might wanna get that looked at.

I could care less what color people or characters are. I think what people are missing here is the animosity towards media that is WOKE being force fed to us that EVERY movie is suspect these days unless it predates the last couple of decades. Notice that nobody questions a movie from before 2000 as being 'woke?' So yeah, who cares what color GL is? What should concern you is how he or anyone else is presented, with what morals, and if he's not g'd'm political!

Just for the record... John Stewart, one of the characters known as Green Lantern, was the second African-American superhero to appear in DC Comics, and he first appeared in Green Lantern (Volume 2) #87 (December 1971/January 1972)... hardly a modern "woke" construct of so-called "Cancel culture". He's been around for longer than most of those bitching about him here! LOL :)
