The Gimp Lantern Has a Name

The Gimp Lantern Has a Name

Earth's newest Green Lantern has a name and the Outhouse knows what it is!

We don't have high hopes for the new Green Lantern, debuting in September's Green Lantern #0. Considering he looks like a sexual deviant about to rob a convenience store, the Gimp Lantern is an easy target, even if he didn't have a lame name.  Luckily, it appears that Geoff Johns isn't done giving the front page easy material. 

Diamond retailer's site accidentally leaked the name of the new Green Lantern, which had yet to be revealed.  According to the site, the new Green Lantern's name will be Baz.  According to the two baby name sites I researched, Baz could be an Arabic name for 'royal' or 'falcon'.  It could also be a variant of Barry, which draws its origin from the Gaelic word for 'spear' or 'fair-haired'.  I'm guessing they were looking at the former name origin, but knowing DC's half-cocked attitude about most things, it could easily have been the other away around. 

Anyways, who's looking forward to the merry adventures of Baz the Gimp Lantern and his attempts to get Wonder Woman to tie him up?  Or to see him fight mobsters with the help of a psychotic ten year old girl?  Also, on a more random note, I have a cat named Baz.  It's short for Basil, as in Basil Rathbone.
