This week Clancy "Lex Luthor" Brown guests on the voice cast, and does a great job as you might expect. I'm starting to think it's more and more likely we'll see some of these villains again, wearing a ring of one color or another...
Saint Walker makes his big debut this week, but the big question for me is: what is he doing on Mogo? How did he get there if Mogo has been attracting bad guys? Was he a prisoner on one of their ships, or did he travel on his own? In this story is he "reformed"? More to come, I'm sure. Great moment of prophecy regarding the "coming storm", kind of his own version of Ganthet's "War of Light" from the comics, but still very vague. And of course, "there is always hope." My favorite quote of his though is probably: "Rage has no real power. Or taste for that matter. It is the orphan child of fear and despair." I really liked the emphasis on his agility and economy of motion when sparring with Razer - Walker as kind of a kung fu master matches his very Zen attitudes, and what we saw of him in the comics defending himself from Red Lanterns without the boost of a GL to make constructs.
Now, he is carrying the GL ring before giving it to Razer. Do you guys think the ring actually chose him first, or he just found it and was carrying it because Mogo couldn't wield it on his surface?
Speaking of the big guy, another great but unexpected addition to the cast. I kind of like the idea that he is just now joining the GLC instead of being this ancient, integral part of the Corps that Johns made him, and I was never crazy about him being the guiding force for Lantern selection, I always accepted that the rings were able to do it themselves, as they apparently do in the show just fine. I really like the idea of him being a "normal" planet with giant construct "ring" to show his GL badge, though the "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" idea of trees forming the lantern symbol was always cool too, this is a unique twist. So who's next? Leezle Pon? Let's keep our fingers crossed for Rot Lop Fan! That could make a fun episode.
