Chambara JLA: Green Lantern by genesischant Chambara JLA: Green Lantern by genesischant
Chambara Hero Green Lantern.

The second to last in this series!

Chambara Green Lantern is called the 'Lantern Bearer'.

The city of Edo is famously diverse, and famously dangerous. A true metropolis of feudal times, Edo is teeming with all walks of life. The police keep the order, apprehend criminals, and even act as fire fighters if the need arises. Haru Jyoudan is just one of hundreds of officers assigned to the sprawling city. He is a tireless worker, notable only for his devotion to his duty, unusual name, and for his seeming lack of any other personality traits. Secretly, however, this low-ranked samurai detective is a member of the Shogun's own secret police organization, the Lantern Brigade.

Haru Jyoudan is the incredibly gifted officer in charge of the city of Edo, which he manages through his duties as a constable and through a variety of other contacts inside and outside the city, on both sides of the law. Haru reports to the mysterious Commander Owa, as one of many secret agents positioned strategically throughout Japan. He has been behind countless arrests of smugglers, kidnappers, and counterfeiters, and has even foiled a couple of attempts to seize control of the country. Only a handful of people have even an inkling of Haru's true identity, and he works hard to maintain a level of mediocrity of character so as to keep it that way.

When operating as an official Lantern Brigade agent, Haru brandishes a specially made police lantern, intoning the famous words of the brigade loyalty oath.

My favorite part is how you reworked Hal Jordan's bland character into something positive. XD

can ya tell me what his version of the Oath is?
Will you make en Edo Sinestro?

If you can do a Prohibition Sinestro, you can do anything.
I love all of these JLA reworks, but I think this one is my favorite. I love that you were able to mix real history with the comic fantasy. I'd buy this book in a heartbeat if they ever published it.

Thanks, I had a good time working on him.
This League would actually make a GREAT Elseworlds story.
