But the Corps are bigger than one person and there are plenty of great characters who’ve served. Here are four Green Lanterns who’ve displayed their strength, heroism and willpower.

The Comic Vault is looking into the history of the Dark Knight’s love life to determine who could give him the happiness he needs.
Beneath The Pages looks at writers and artists in the comic book industry and examines how influential they are. It’s about giving them recognition for their hard work and drawing attention to their finest creations. In the past decade there’s been a lot of influential comic writers, but it could be argued that no one has left more of an impact than Scott Snyder. Best known for his work on Batman, Snyder has redefined The Dark Knight for a new generation of fans.
It’s been established that Wolverine is one of Marvel’s most famous characters and a lot of that can be credited to Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. The pair are responsible for creating Wolverine’s original solo series, which redefined the character.

As convenient as technology is, it can become a double-edged sword. The more advancements that are made, the more we’ll come to rely on technology to carry out the smallest tasks. The danger of technology and the isolation it causes are themes that are explored in Michelle Stanford’s Centralia 2050: Volume 1. A girl named Midori is lost in the high-tech metropolis of Centralia, and the only memory she can hold onto is finding a child called Weiss. Stanford sent a copy of Volume 1 over to The Comic Vault in exchange for an honest review.
Since the DC Extended Universe was created, it’s felt like there was a rush to catch up with the MCU. It’s been criticised for being overly dark, but Wonder Woman proved to be a step in the right direction. Justice League is the next entry in the franchise and I’m happy to say it’s continued DC’s momentum. The film brings together Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg to save the world, which they pull off with a sense of promise.
