Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Green Lantern Recap

Although these shorts were not the absolute brightest day for Green Lantern, they were a nice introduction that surely could have built up interest in the character. Compared to the other heroes, Green Lantern was presented as a space-based hero. Although a number of Superman's adventures also took him into space, it seemed that a Green Lantern series would have focused almost exclusively in that realm. I admire the inclusion of so many elements from Green Lanterns comic book history in the shorts, but overall the execution was not the greatest. Especially the last short was just not well written. Once again, I think that only one of these shorts could be considered essential in order to get a flavor for the character, the best episode being the first.

Essential Episode:
Evil is as Evil Does
