The Power of Green for Your Green Tree

There are certain characters you immediately think of when you think DC Comics Superheroes.  Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, for example.  Not surprising, these are also the characters you think of when you think of the Justice League.  But DC and the League both have other characters, and Hallmark included one of them, Green Lantern, in this year’s addition to their Justice League mini ornaments.

Green Lantern is the first of these mini ornaments not to be diving forward into the fight.  Oh, he’s fighting, he’s just doing it his way.  He’s pulled back with his right arm extended.  His right arm is the one with his ring of power on it, so he’s ready to unleash his power to fight whatever evil the Justice League is facing today.  This is a classic Green Lantern with a green and black costume.

And that green costume might be an issue on your tree.  It would be easy for him to get lost in the green branches.  But then again, he is Green Lantern.  He needs to be green.

That’s my only concern with the ornament.  He looks just like the classic character from the comic books.  I’m not as familiar with him as some of the other comic book characters since I never read comic books growing up, but even I can easily recognize who he is.

This is a miniature ornament.  As such, he is only an inch and a half tall.  He will look great on my miniature tree, but he will get lost if you aren’t careful on a big tree.

Since he is in action, you can’t set this ornament out to be displayed.  However, he looks great when you go to hang him on a tree.  Hanging him really captures that in the middle of a fight look.

I’m happy to see Hallmark branch out a little and include Green Lantern in their mini Justice League set.  I’m curious to see if they will continue next year, and if so, which characters we will get.
