My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by The Unread Reader where readers can swoon over boys in books every Wednesday!
After taking a somewhat epic break, I’m finally getting back to this meme. But please keep in mind that my picks will be a bit atypical in that I don’t usually fall in love with attractive men who grace the pages of romance novels. I tend to prefer loner anti-heroes or villains or men whose personalities greatly outshine their physical appearence in many ways.
Case in point? Today’s Book Boyfriend is…
Sinestro from DC Comics’ Green Lantern series. Because not only did I see the movie recently, but I re-read Green Lantern: Secret Origin by Geoff Johns. Neither one is perfect, but both have something the other lacks, which is pretty cool.
My Book Boyfriend Stats:
– Full name: Thaal Sinestro
– From Korugar
– Formerly the Green Lantern of Sector 1417
– Current Leader of Sinestro Corps
– Arch-Nemesis of the Green Lantern Corps
– Wields a yellow power ring
– Is capable of utilizing and manipulating great fear
What Led to Massive Crushing:
I love me some aliens. Especially the ones with pointy ears, awesome skin pigmentation, and widow’s peaks.
But more seriously… I really, really find comic book villains to be more compelling. Granted Sinestro isn’t as sympathetic as some, but I really like the role he plays in the Green Lantern comics particularly his interactions with Hal Jordan who is just pretty much as dull normal as a hero can get. I also find the whole colors and emotions connection that is used in the comics to be really fascinating and over all Sinestro Corps is incredibly creepy.
