I'm totally with you on this one!... Names man! It's the parents' fault I think! It never crossed their minds! If your last name is McEvil... Change it! Don't go naming the kid Sinister or Gargan... and please don't encourage him to go into medicine! Simple advices that would avert the disaster of Dr. Sinister McEvil!
Birth Announcement: Mr. & Mrs. Jones would like to welcome their son, Thaal Sinestro, into the world as of August 1961. Sinestro will no doubt take after his father who is the veterinarian that single-handedly saved all the Pandas from extinction, volunteers at homeless shelters 4 times a week, and was actually sainted last week, or his mother who has recently refused to ascend into a higher plane of existence to help other achieve nirvana on Earth. "We will raise Sinestro to be the kind, gentle, humble soul just as we have devoted our lives to achieving," said Sinestro's parents. They added: "Just so you know, if he turns evil, he's totally adopted."
I just think it was really neat that his role in the whole of the first movie was good guy. It seems like every Green Lantern thing they make, Sinestro is the bad guy. It was nice to see him get his time and his whole decision process/mindset for turning into the Yellow Lantern rather than just getting the "backstory sequence". Really excellent drawing. Also, side trivia. I watched Green Lantern and John Carter back to back and when I hear the Thern's (Matai Shang's) voice I turned to my father and said "hey, that's Sinestro!" He didn't believe me, so we bet a nickel on it and looked at the credits for both movies and I won!!!!
...Sinestro...? He's DC, not Marvel... he's an enemy of Green Lanturn. x'3 His power ring is yellow though, and it's fueled differently than the green ones... but I'm only slightly familiar with him, so I can recognize him but don't know a lot about him as a character...
Ahh. x'3 Well, apparently green is powered by will and yellow is powered by fear... fear constricts your will so it's a Green Lanturn's weakness. (I know now since I discussed this with my friends yesterday, lol... x'3) It's quite interesting actually. I'm not really into the green lanturn comics too much myself buuut... if you wiki green lanturn then look up the emotional spectrum, it'll tell you about all the colours and what their powers are. x'3 Pretty interesting.
