Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Evil is as Evil Does

Although the creators of this cartoon managed to stuff quite a bit of mythology including Oa, the Guardians, and the oath into this 7 minutes they also chose to add in a little blue alien sidekick names Kyro which was completely unnecessary. Aside from getting piggyback rides from both Green Lantern and villain, Kyro's also served the purpose of punching the glitchy lantern to get it to work properly.

The treacherous Evil Star, a comic book villain who used his star band to drain energy from stars, was a much more welcome inclusion in the episode. We did get to see a couple of constructs including a boxing glove, a fist, and an axe, and I did appreciate the ambition of the episode. The writers really seemed to make an effort to show not just GL but his broader world and I do appreciate that. In all, not a bad start for the cosmic crusader.
