I bet Gil Kane (1926-2000) and John Broome (1913-1999) would both have been surprised that a live-action movie based on their revival of the now Silver Age classic DC comics Green Lantern character was about to be a big budget Summer film. I’m sure they would have also been surprised to learn that children who have never picked up an issue of the comic are about to play a video game based on Hal Jordan, Green Lantern of Sector 2814, as well.
