Green Lantern Vs. Doctor Doom



Alan Scott has always been a favorite character of mine.  I like that he has a power ring, but is separate from the Green Lantern Corps.  I always liked that he ran a radio station and called Gotham his home.  But the main reason I really like him is that he is the one hero that I can think of that is a confirmed southpaw!  As a left handed kid growing up, I definitely took note of which hand he wore his ring on.  Are there any other characters that have been established as being left handed?

I never knew that Alan Scott was left handed-wow! I thought it was pretty cool that he worked in radio-in Gotham. Alan Scott and Billy Batson were my role models!

Any day with an Alan Scott Green Lantern cover is a great one! I always liked him for the same basic reasons: his novelty as a Green Lantern, and like you, I'm left-handed. A quick Bing search didn't reveal much as far as left-handed superheros, unfortunately, and I can't think of any others off-hand, though I would posit that a decent number of them could at least be ambidextrous: Batman, Daredevil, those types of guys and gals. One thing I'd also like to see more of is choosing handedness in video games. If I remember correctly, that used to be a more common feature in the early days of modern computer games, but you don't really see it anymore.

I think Flint from GI Joe was probably left-handed, though the only evidence I have to go off of is the original figure's card art.

Sinestro really should be one, based solely on his name.
