The Flash & Green Lantern: The Heart That Attacked The World
One of the most enduring buddy cop movie partnerships in comics has to be that of Green Lantern & The Flash, even if their friendship got off to a slightly dodgily written start:
So Barry has a 'special feeling' for Hal. Isn't that nice?
For fans of the twosome, there's a very good late '90's Brave & The Bold mini-series by Mark Waid I can recommend, detailing the pair's long partnership. It's a lot of fun, not least because of the running joke about how many jobs Hal had over the years ( toy salesman? ) and how often he had to borrow money from Bazza.
In 1973 for instance, Green Lantern was without a book of his own, so Flash offered him a couch in his spare room, so to speak, letting GL take over the back-up spot in his book, and occasionally sharing billing, like here, where the twosome combine forces against Sinestro & Weather Wizard, and Cary Bates slightly ties himself in knots trying to make that cover make sense. A lot of DC at the time was based around the cover image, and I suspect Julie Schwartz just threw this one at Bates and barked ' Make a story out of that!'
But the bad guys' plan ( hatched in a tree for no apparent reason ) is irrelevant really. This is just two buddies doing what they do best.
