I found this character quite endearing in the Final Night crossover in the mid 90s. I think that’s what it was called. The one where the sun was going out and Hal Jordan sacrificed himself to save the world/redeem himself as Parallax. Stuart Immoneny goodness.
Star Trek Into Darkness. I liked this quite a bit. Not as much as J.J. Abram’s first “Trek” film, but still, quite a bit. It’s certainly not perfect, but it’s big and fun and exciting. Plus it has Benedict Cumberbatch – or as I like to refer to him, My New Hobby.
