Webcomic / Earth 14
Earth 14 is an upcoming web comic that takes place in the DC Multiverse. It follows Val Halen and a number of other characters in Earth 14, one of the many Earths located in its own Multiverse. Val is just your average Earthling who had grown completely bored with the action paced world of heroes and villains of everyday life. One day s/he is given the opportunity to join the Blue Lanterns and accepts the offer.
This web comic has examples of:
- Alternate Universe: It takes place in Earth 14, where the technology is more advanced, colleges and healthcare are free, and historical events occurred differently. Racism and homophobia ended at a much earlier time, aliens are commonplace and there was hardly any war. Well into the present time, Earth 14 is almost a Utopia, as crime rates have gone down by 85%. As such, most of the conflict takes place out in space.
- Ambiguous Gender: Val is this at first glance. S/he is genderfluid and is fine with any pronouns.
- Different As Night and Day: A non related example, Val and Helia. The former is laid back, appears aloof, very sarcastic but is also rather popular and well liked. The latter is loud, obnoxious, has a serious ego and is one of the most disliked people in the corps.
- Fantastically Indifferent: Val maintains the same expression for pretty much any situation, from random aliens invading to being held hostage.
- The Future/Schizo Tech: While still the present time, Earth 14 is much more technologically advanced. However there are still areas and technologies not out of place in our present, such as regular cars in addition to flying ones.
- Hopeless Suitor: Talos always kept falling for women that (he didn't know) are already with someone else. While it upsets him, he gladly steps down once he finds out. It's a Recurring Gag of his that is soon dropped after marrying Galatea.
- Solar CPR: Blue Lanterns can rejuvenate dying stars.
