Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
Green Lantern is the name given to numerous superheroes in comic books published by DC Comics. Alan Scott, the first Green Lantern, was created by Bill Finger and Martin Nodell and premiered in All-American Comics #16 in 1940. Each Green Lantern is armed with a power ring that projects solid-light constructs limited only by the wearer’s imagination and willpower. Except for Alan Scott, Green Lanterns are specially selected members of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic police force. Notable Green Lanterns of Earth include Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, and Kyle Rayner. Throughout their history Green Lanterns have often been members of the various incarnations of the Justice Society and Justice League with fellow superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and others. The Green Lanterns have appeared in numerous TV series, including Green Lantern: The Animated Series (2011), and the film Green Lantern (2011).
