Animated World of DC Comics: Green Lantern vs. "Sirena, Empress of Evil" (1967)

This weekend, Green Lantern soars onto the silver screen in a feature film starring Ryan Reynolds, who's already earned his cred with comics fans, having starred in "Blade: Trinity", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", & "The Losers". To commemorate the occasion, we will present over the next few days the three Filmation cartoons starring the Emerald Gladiator from the Superman-Aquaman Hour of Adventure. First up, ironically, is the last of those three, in which GL (Gerald Mohr, who was also the voice of Reed Richards on Fantastic Four that same season) battles "Sirena, Empress of Evil".

There are plans for GL to star in his own computer-animated series on Cartoon Network, to air next year. Maybe the writers can take the original 1967 shorts and expand on those plots first before creating some original stories......

Rating: B.
