No shes not. She needs her b3 changed like asap, cant armour break it cause it low profiles fucking d1's and on recovery she may as well be a puddle.

Shits totally busted.

I dont care if shes fine as a character its garabage game design.

Hitboxes in this game are fucked beyond belief
You can whiff punish with b1

I know it's only one of you Lantern players who think he's bad, so you guys don't take this the wrong way. I agree 100% with the OP, Green Lantern is a good character with good tools, but has his drawbacks too. Anyone can look bad more mediocre or amazing or broken just by taking their tools and looking at them in a box without the context of the rest of the cast. Taking the whole cast into account I think Green Lantern is mid to upper mid tier.

I think he's better for sure than:
Wonder Woman
Swamp Thing
Supergirl
Joker
Grodd
Flash
Firestorm
Fate
Cyborg
Cheetah(maybe)
Captain Cold

He's a step below your Batmans, Black Adams, Aquamans, etc but I think he's a step above the characters I mentioned and there is a fair amount of characters he is more or less the same as imo. So yeah I think more characters should be around his quality.
WW is better then GL imo.

And for the rest of the cast who dont have his stupid ass b1

Her b3 is more broken that any hitbox in mkx. No clue how people arent blowing up over it its jc'd d4 tenfold
Idk cage's down 4 low profiled every thing
 
That's why you stagger b1, to make sure they don't back dash. Gl has better spacing that aqua and scarecrow and maybe superman since all he really has is f23
I don't have much Aquaman or Superman experience, but Green Lantern definitely doesn't have better spacing than Scarecrow.

This is my billionth life cycle.
why are you complaining about catwoman's b3 in a green lantern thread?
You're taking his comment way out of context. FYI, when someone quotes something, you can click on the little red arrow to see where it came from.

You do know you're on tym? I'm surprised no one here is downplaying black Adam.
This response is pretty ironic considering someone taking something way out of context is more "TYM" than being off-topic.

he loses to cyborg who isnt top tier, Ivy who is debateable, fate who apparently isnt either.

and what about the negative's he doesnt have a positive for?
only 1 wake up that can be stuffed
horrible back dash
his forward dash has a ton of recovery so his mb dash is hard to use against zoning
he only has one way to combo (lift) and its -28 on block
he is almost always unsafe, unless he spends meter which he needs to combo and do more than 25%


idk im just repeating myself i like your optimism kid but this character needs help
Hey mate, how is he loosing to cyborg? Can't compete at close to mid ranges with Lantern as Cyborg main. B1 low profiles every 2nd move, I can't even trade with my normals. To dish out some damage I need to make a great read on staggered b1 because Gls trait recharges so fast that I risk every time eating trait combo with followed cross up f3.
When I eat string +1 I can't jump out of d1, can try to trade, but b3 mb just place me again in the same spot blocking +1 string...
Zoning is almost 50/50 so that helps only when I need to close the round being full screen.
What can I explore against that matchup as cyborg?

just get better at zoning tbh if you think its even remotely even you arent doing it right. you have mid fireballs air fireballs anti air fireballs target acquired and even trait. and you can grapple if youre in trouble. and you have a wake up. just ask the high level cyborgs. he beats GL handily, he did in injustice 1 too so look at those notes if youre stil confused

Sooooo the answer is - get better in zoning or what?)

Actually, GL have iab, have slow, fast fb, knockdown fullscreen frame trap, awesome dashin if cyborg plays 3/4 screen and AA with d2 as hell.
So zonning seems 50/50
We played like 100 games in a row and if GL have lifelead and starts zonning me out, that hurts a lot. We are almost trading all the time and I can't reach him because that b1 spaces me out of jump range.
Also that f3 crossup - I still didn't fugred out that when it can be doable? What particular setup leads to f3 crossup?
Edit. Wakeup doesn't work when:
  1. He crosses me up with f3 or jump
  2. When he just ducks for a moment
  3. When he do any other shit in the air -> full punish on whiff
  4. Grapple is not a wake up and in the corner armor just breaks

I still think he needs a little damage buff. When I play as him, I rely too much on that cross-up after the bounce of lantern's might when his trait is activated and other resets after mb lantern's might just to get that big boy damage and that doesn't always work in my favor. His damage is kinda lame compared to other zoners like superman and black adam.
