    Maybe she'll still have some left over Omega power from Justice League Odyssey?

    Or maybe the story will have her replacing her ring somehow?

    No. spoilers:
    It was mentioned that she'd need to ask the Corps for a new ring. If the younger Jess was the survivor, then she'd already have one.

    Jessica is getting her own graphic novel in 2021 titled Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story.

    Acclaimed author Lilliam Rivera and artist Steph C. reimagine one of DCís greatest Green Lanterns, Jessica Cruz, to tell a story about immigration, family, and overcoming fear to inspire hope.

    Jessica Cruz has done everything right. Sheís a dedicated student, popular among her classmates, and has a loving family that has done everything they can to give her a better life in the United States. While Jessica is a part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, allowing her to go to school and live in the U.S., her parents are undocumented. Jessica usually worries for her parents, but her fears and anxiety escalate as a mayoral candidate with a strong anti-immigration stance runs for office.

    As the xenophobia in Coast City increases, Jessica begins to debate whether itís worth renewing her status to stay in the U.S., or if her family would be safer and better off moving back to Mexico. And despite her attempts to lean on her friends and family, she finds herself constantly visited by visions of Aztec gods, one pulling her towards hope and the other towards anger.

    But when her father is detained by I.C.E., Jessica finds herself being pulled into an abyss of fear. With her father gone and feeling helpless, Jessica must find her way out of her fears and ultimately become a voice for her community.

    Does it really matter anyway? They already threw a tantrum when she was first introduced lol. Though I honestly feel this kind of story fits Jaime Reyes more, especially the whole Aztec gods part.

    Yeah, I'm really curious how they connect that to the GL mythos because you see the GL symbol on the cover.

    Was wanting them to do one (to the point I was even doing thought experiments on what one would look like and how feasible a fan comic would be). Not entirely sold on the cover art and I do agree with other commentators that connecting to Aztec mythology with seemingly no actual Green Lantern references as of yet is a little puzzling. Tying into the current immigration problems is something I hadn't considered, but sounds like a good idea.

    I guess overall, I kinda want to see how this plays out before forming strong opinions, but I am very curious and will be giving it a chance when it comes out.

    It's usually a good thing when they do.

    and I for one will be loving every minute of it. have we reached the point were we can mock these people and their bad faith "arguments" that always "just so happen" to be leveled at characters of color yet? have we reached that point? I'd love it if we did.

    Y'know, the synopsis talking about her parents and her dad getting captured at ICE reminds me that she had two moms on DC Super Hero Girls.

    Well, the cartoon version is definitely more outgoing than normal Jess, but I don't think they deliberately styled her after America Chavez.

    Like, she's a pacifist, for one.

    Well, America's the only character I can think of with two Moms. Seems like at least that much was ripped off from her.
