    Yeah, that's one of those things that get lost in the shuffle when John gets stuck on background duty. Pre-Flashpoint was a key aspect of his pathos.

    I am not enjoying this Justice League run. It's overwritten, the "forces" are corny (I can't take anything called the Invisible Emotional Spectrum or Ultra Violet Lantern seriously at all), the mystery isn't exciting anymore, and it seems to primarily be written by James Tynion now. Is Scott Snyder too lazy to write this himself? Why is so much of it being delegated to Tynion, I wonder?

    Also, John Stewart's internalized power doesn't really seem all that different from Jade, so that's nothing I'm too excited about.

    I didn't know either. I know who Lynn is but I didn't know she was related to John. It might just be YJ canon.

    I like that they're writing together. All the JL titles are supposed to be working along side each other so if the writers help one another its way better for continuity and plans. I do too find Snyder a bit too overstuffed with ideas but so far i'm liking what he's doing with John.

    Lynn Stewart being John’s sister was something that Tony Isabella had planned when he wrote Black Lightning originally. But the plans fell through for whatever reasons.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.

    I agree with this. I would say I was a little worried of James Tynion being involved, since I don't know how much he views John Stewart, but things seems to be going alright so far.

But those are just my thoughts on how I would imagine some of the new aspects of his powers would work.

    I'm very interested in how this "new" power will effect him mentally. Will he have to be careful of not desiring something enough that he just instantly forms it from his mind? Will he to figure out so form of sleep remedy as to not make his dreams come to life while resting?

    Those could be some very fun avenues to explore with the character for 2019.

    Another thing I would like to see is a different costume. The one he has now is his iconic uniform and I do enjoy it very much but it be nice to see him wear something else for a short period of time. Most of the "A-Listers" have worn a few different suits over the years why not give John a shot at it?

    Here's a couple redesign's I found online that I thought were cool:
    This is an interesting speculation. It looks like John's willpower might play a huge role in what's going on with John Stewart currently. There's just so many good ideas for the character.

    Those are great costumes!

    It actually gives writers the opportunity to explore more on the character, thanks to what Scott Snyder has been doing with John. I'm sure if Van Jensen starts to work for DC again and he's a writer of a John Stewart book, I'm sure he's going to use some of those ideas from Justice League.

    Has there been some word or hint of Jensen returning? I haven't heard of Van Jensen writing anything for DC ever since his run with Robert Venditti on The Flash, and I think that was way back in 2014 or so. Furthermore, I think DC only used Jensen because they needed someone to write GLC on very short notice when Fialkov abruptly left, and Robert Venditti did Jensen a solid and recommended him. Still, I think it's a shame DC has stuck with Venditti this long and Jensen has faded away or only worked for much smaller publishers, because I think Jensen is the better writer.

    There doesn't seem to be very strong continuity in comics these days. Oftentimes, writers ignore what previous writers did, or abruptly change directions (often with little or no explanation in the stories) and just do their own things until they leave the book (which is oftentimes after about a year these days), and then the next writer ignores what they did and kind of starts wherever they want. It's not just a John Stewart or black character thing, or anything like that. There's a lot of that going on across the board at the larger publishers now, which is a shame, because I find it more and more difficult to get invested in current projects knowing that whatever I'm reading is likely to not matter a fig a year later. I'd be surprised if that Ultra Violet stuff makes it into any comics outside Justice League in any meaningful way, especially since, in my opinion, it's a humdrum idea with extremely silly terminology.

    Agreed. I was just speculating if he ever comes back to DC, I'm sure he would carry on the trend to what Scott Snyder did with him. I personally thought Robert Venditti was the worst lantern writer, compared to the other writers who took over Red Lanterns, New Guardians, Sinestro, and GLC. I was surprised Robert Venditti was there longer than them.

    I think Van Jensen is underrated.

    Yea, I've been noticing this too. The scary thought is when a writer may not care as much for a character and do away what the previous writer has successfully did for that character. I've seen this many times in the New 52.

    About the Ultra Violet, I think there's a strong chance that its concept will appear in other comics outside of JL, because it gives other writers a foundation on what to build for their next story. And Justice League seems to be really popular at the moment.

    Thanks! It's nice to see John still appear in that cartoon. I was worried he wasn't going to be in the new season.
