Today’s post is a part of the Green Lantern 75th Birthday Party. The original Green Lantern (Alan Scott) first appeared 75 years ago this summer. So during June and July, I’ll be spotlighting some sweet Green Lantern treats. Other blogs joining in the party are Flodo’s Page, Blog of Oa, The Lanterncast, Green Blogger's Site, and The Brighest Day, The Blackest Night. If you’re a fan of Green Lantern, please check them out.
This wonderful birthday cake is based on the 2011 Green Lantern movie. A cool poster for the movie is above. The cake features Green Lantern’s Power Battery, his ring, and his glove from the movie. My favorite part of the cake is the power battery. The green, dark green, and black color scheme of the power battery really stands out against Green Lantern’s glove and ring. If Ini had used the classic power battery, there wouldn’t have been anything to contrast the green with. Because of that, using the multi-colored power battery works really well here.
Which power battery do you prefer – the classic or the movie version?
This model of the classic Green Lantern battery is sold by Amazon, while the model of the movie version is much harder to find. I would be hard pressed to choose which I prefer. I really like the sleek metallic look of the classic power battery, but the one problem I have with it is that it is one shade of green. I like how the movie version of the power battery uses various shades of green and is translucent in parts. You can tell instantly that it is a power battery, but it looks very different then the classic version.
