Green Lantern: The Animated Series - hugs
Warning: long, LONG ramblings and images under the cut.
I’m happy about the things we did right.
And sorry for the things we did wrong.
Learning. Hope to do better on the next show.
"Mea Culpa" — an acknowledgment of one’s fault or error.
I can’t express enough what wonderful creators the Fanterns are lucky enough to have. They have from early on encouraged and engaged the fans, been vocally appreciative of positive responses, and acknowledged criticism fairly and with grace.
Worth noting, writer Ernie Altbacker also responded, saying this was “Good stuff!”
Love you guys.
ahaha aha… TuT It’s funny how some think that Galia isn’t sexualized coz body type and outfit~ LOOK AT HER! The disparity on male and female anatomy is astounding. Look at those long legs, and arms, and small torso. She IS a cookie-cutter, hourglass female body type… just expanded in width. She looks so out of place anatomy-wise.
I wonder if their species lay eggs.I would prefer her to be round like her male counterpart.
I don’t think I can let this go even though she is an alien.
you seem to misunderstand what “sexualized” means.
It’s okay, it’s a common misconception, but the article you’re probably referring to was not talking about her body type (which it IS something to marvel at because we barely ever get thicker women in Bruce Timm style and while I would love what you put on the table, I at least appreciate what we can get), but it was talking about her clothing.
Somewhat similar to Tamerans (Starfire’s planet in case you don’t know), the thing is about equal exposure of skin. Galia may be bearing her midriff and whatnot, but the male counterpart outfit shows and equal amount of skin. This is what is what they say when she isn’t sexualized amongst her species. The men aren’t covered head to toe in armor and then the women wearing nothing but a loincloth. It’s equal and apart of their culture.
Kindly don’t laugh at an argument you misunderstood, because it was a very well written article that you’re referring to.
That article is talking mostly about clothing. Personally, I do not have a problem with that. Here, I am talking about anatomy. Bruce Timm already drew Granny Goodness and Amanda Waller for Justice League Unlimited (the tv animation series). Just a bit more would suffice.
Since I would think that Galia’s species would be akin to rhinos—being round, tough, and heavy built—it’s logical to have the females to be like that as well. But for some odd reason, they gave her the hour-glass figure and a rather different skeletal structure. I would consider that sexualization. That every female of her species is of the same body type doesn’t change my mind.
If they were insect-types, I would be more forgiving(but then females should be larger).
To be honest, that article was very well written. But they were mostly talking about clothing as he said. The anatomy point was left out. Your version of possible female anatomy is way way WAY better, but what we get is not that bad. It was no doubt sexualized, but at least they did not give her Earth human Barbie face.
…Kilowog would totally find the middle version a lot more attractive than the right. XDDDDDDDDD
Now I really want to know if they lay eggs.
Just between us, Kilowog was mostly into her because of the soup.
She makes REALLY good soup.
Ah yes~ The way to his heart, indeed.
So~ Do they also lay eggs?
Edited: Granny Goodness, not Mother Mae Eye.
Who? The Zor? They’re aliens. The males lay the eggs and then both genders take turns sitting on them.
I still find it refreshing that Galia was a bad ass warrior lady but was also shown to have traditionally-feminine skills like cooking and it was no way remarked on in the show as contradictory to be good at/proud of/enjoy doing both.
Carol Ferris as Cure Happy:
Why? Because she’d obviously would be the leader. I tried to mix Happy’s crown with Carol’s mask-thing.
Red Lantern Razer as Cure Sunny:
Like I said, I wanted to draw him in a dress. He’s not very ‘Sunny’, but he does breathe fire sometimes!
Star Sapphire Galia as Cure Peace:
I really like Galia. I like that they added in a larger woman in the show. AND she’s just as sensual as the rest of the Star Sapphires! I made her Cure Peace because in her opening episode, she helped Kilowog and Hal sort out the differences between two tribes.
Navigational AI Aya as Cure March:
I’m biased here. I love March and I love Aya. I put them together. That’s all, really. Also, I want Aya to wear clothes on the show, not just her robot-parts. I think it would be cute.~
Queen Iolande of Betrassis as Cure Beauty:
Because she IS beautiful. Iolande is special to me because she was one of the first female Green Lanterns I read about. Although she’s a Royal Pain in the books, she more regal and patient in the show, which is okay. But if she finally joins the team, i kinda want to see what it would be like if she had to do without all her special privilages.
