Okay, inspired by the “Jedi vs X-men” thread a few weeks back, I decided that it was time for another pointless geek discussion.
Who would win between the Jedi and the Green Lantern Corps? Lets look at the contestants.
Both are large groups of good guys dedicated to fighting evil throughout the galaxy.
Both have membership that include both humans and non humans.
Both have “magical” powers (Jedi through the force, Green Lanterns through their rings).
Both have seen bleak times when their membership was reduced to one member, but have recovered.
There are other similarities, but the question is who would win? I say the GL corps. In fact, I have a hard time believing that it would be anything other than one sided.
While both groups seem to send individual members in to solve problems, They can, and have sent large numbers in for big problems. A large group of Green Lanterns working together is usually an awesome force, while large groups of Jedi (the arena scene in EP II) just get their asses kicked even harder.
The Lanterns excel at ranged combat, and have the means to keep opponents at a distance, the Jedi can use their force powers at a distance, but their best weapon, the lightsaber, is a close-in weapon. You rarely see a Green Lantern lose his ring, Jedi seem to have a real problem holding onto their sabers.
Jedi mind tricks? Work against weak minds, not against GL’s who are used to using “willpower” to activate their rings.
Before anyone else says it, YES I am a huge geek, wanna make something of it? ;)
