So it looks like we could be getting a space at First Churches, Fridays from 1 – 3. They have to discuss it and approve it at their staff meeting, which won’t be until after Pastor Todd comes back from vacation after July 4. It will be in the rec room, aka the basement. That basement saved my life and many others, and it’s a very familiar recovery space for many in our community, so I’m very pleased with it. The only downside is it looks like it will cost us $60 per week for the space, and since we are not passing a basket but rather dependent upon fundraising, that’s going to be a challenge.

And now back to the nerdy stuff.

Image result for New 52

I was discussing the New 52 and how it affected different aspects of the DCU differently.

Image result for Green Lantern was a little like Batman in the reboot

Green Lantern was a little like Batman in the reboot.

Image result for Green Lantern was popular again

At the time of the reboot, Green Lantern was popular again.  So they decided not to reboot it.  Well, except, as we discussed, when you have an intertwined continuity among all your titles, in a vast mythos spanning decades, you can’t just do a reboot that doesn’t affect some titles.

Image result for the history of Green Lantern no longer happened

So while the Green Lantern tales continued where they left off before Flashpoint, a lot of the history of Green Lantern no longer happened.

Image result for Cyborg Superman and Mongul still blow up Coast City

So Doomsday did kill Superman, but the Reign of the Supermen didn’t happen.  So did Cyborg Superman and Mongul still blow up Coast City, leading to Hal Jordan becoming Parallax?  He still became Parallax, and did that whole killing all the Lanterns thing…

Image result for Donna Troy and Jade

Kyle Rayner was a Green Lantern.  So his thing happened.  Except that Major Force hadn’t existed to kill his first girlfriend.  And his second and third girlfriends (Donna Troy and Jade) both no longer existed.  So, he had adventures, but they were clearly very different.

Image result for Red Lanterns

Sigh.  But hey, people love those Red Lanterns….

Next, let’s talk about what they did to the Justice League.

Matthew 9:35-10:8

The Workers Are Few

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve

10 Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the…
