GREEN LANTERN - John Stewart
WHY HE'S COOL
Stewart is a bad@$$ military man. He goes by the book and don't take no lip. He's just a text book old fashion action hero, with a powering. And his power ring, is basically a magic wand, it can do just about anything. Who wouldn't want a power ring?!
Hal Jordon was picked to be the Green Lantern of Earth, but whenever he couldn't do the job, John Stewart was his back-up. Stewart grew up in Harlem, to a poor family. As often is the case, he joined the Marines for a better life. While still in the Marines, he was contacted by the Guardians of the Universe to be the back-up Green Lantern. Stewart agreed, but didn't believe in secret identities, he wanted everyone to know who he was (the Guardians didn't care). When Hal quit being a Green Lantern and John went full time. Then for reasons way to difficult to explain, John got to remain a Green Lantern when Hal became a Green Lantern again too.
Although Stewart is a great Green Lantern, hubris got the better of him and an entire planet was destroyed. He is forever haunted by this mistake. In making amends, Stewart acted as mayor and marshal of the Mosaic World. A collect of stolen cities from different worlds.
No longer a Marine, John works as an architect, when not saving the Universe. And he married a fellow female alien Green Lantern named Katma Tui.
John Stewart hasn't appeared in film yet. Although he has appeared in the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoon shows.
