Special #15 - “Dank Check” show art Special #15 - “Dank Check”

Doctor DC Podcast

Broadcast from elsewhere in the Multiverse, a version of the show that combines the content of The Doctor DC Podcast with the format of Blank Check! This week, Reid and Richard continue The Pod HallowCast - their miniseries on the DC works of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale - with the pair's most vibrant and possibly most undervalued work, 1998's Superman For All Seasons. It's an introspective, quiet, and visually chonky take on Superman that seems to do everything right.

Where is the lantern exactly?  Is it always available?
Can Lanterns will themselves to move at super speed or instantaneous travel?
If one has read very little GL, where would you recommend starting?
MFK Hal, Sinestro, Kilowog.
Favorite/least favorite non-Lantern to wield a ring? Who do you want to see wield a ring (any or all spectrums) that hasn't yet?
Would Lanterns be totally useless against Psycho Pirate?
If you were to add a color and emotion, what color would you designate which emotion?
Is Sodom Yet stronger than Superman or only when he is Ion?
Other than Mogo and his brother, are there other living planets?
Larfleeze has an army of orange constructs, including Glomulus, is this a special power unique to the Orange Lanterns?
