    The green flames are an essential part of Alan's look. If you lose that, you've lost one of the foundations for the whole character. I think the contrast between the green and red is also very important. I also like how John Byrne used to depict Alan's cape in an almost Dracula/Batman-esque manner. It was nearly all black, with hints of purple and the green underlining.

    Looked great.

    I've always enjoyed the retelling of Alan's origin from Green Lantern Corps Quarterly #1, 1992, as part of a series of flashbacks.



    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    From the same issue, there's also a page of vignettes from Alan's career as GL up to that point:

    This has always been my favorite depiction of Alan's origin. Would love to see this recolored with today's digital palate.
