So this week I finally saw Thor/Green Lantern and I really enjoyed the plot. A reckless yet charming warrior makes an irresponsible move and is banished/fired. Then he loses/gains a cosmic weapon of vast power and travels through an Einstein-Rosen bridge (wormhole) to an alien world. Once there he has to learn their strange ways and some humility in order to become the hero he was always meant to be. His love interest helps soften him up and get his priorities straight. Then he defeats the secondary villain by surrendering, showing his softer side, and regains his cosmic weapon as a result, and opens up a can of whup-ass. Then he defeats the real villain, earns the respect of everyone who thought he was irresponsible, and returns to his place in the heavens as a deity/space cop. There are hints of a sequel.
Hector/Loki has an interesting side story of disappointing his powerful father and developing his own powers and confidence, albeit those powers are used for evil instead of good, and ultimately that selfishness proves to be their undoing.
It was good both times, though I was a little confused that one time it was Marvel and the other time it was DC, I thought they were different companies. ;)
