Yes. Despite what you believe, Jordan. I remain loyal to the idea of the Green Lantern Corps policing the universe. For years, I labored to change it for the better through debate. And you agreed with me. Debating with the Guardians never got us anywhere, did it? But instilling them with fear? Fear was the key. The Green Lantern Corps has always lacked the proper aggression to deal with the chaos and hedonism that infects our universe. They’ve focused so much on overcoming their own fears that they failed to realize the true power in instilling fear in others. That has now changed. The Green Lantern Corps is now authorized to wield lethal force. The universe will fear Green Lanterns. And the universe will be better for it.
