Yeahhhh…. this is me being a nerd.
For the most part, I’m not big into the superhero genre. Don’t get me wrong… I’ll watch a superhero movie in the theatre if it looks interesting or I will read a superhero comic book if presented to me by one of my friends saying “this issue is awesome!”, but it’s not a genre that I would actively seek out on a regular basis.
One of the exceptions to this is anything Green Lantern related (Except for Guy Guardener… the arrogant prick!). I do find the story behind the lanterns to be fascinating.
While sitting in class one day, it dawned on me that the Lantern Corps will still be around in 500,000 years so I began to think about what the Lantern in charge of the sector the Azure Wheel universe is in would look like. And thus Saay’tas was born.
I thought a Spaceborn would be the best choice for a lantern by far, though my husband (The REAL Lan-tard in the family) said that that may not be true since a Spaceborn may not want to listen to the Guardians. Too bad, JF… he’s MY lantern. >_<
As much as I’d LOVE to say this guy is “Canon” with the Azure Wheel universe, he most likely is not. If only for the obvious reason that the president of DC comics would show up at my door with a Black Lantern army.
