Green Lantern, Frank Miller/Jim Lee style
The Frank Miller Green Lantern is even more stupid than the Frank Miller Superman, but it is written in such a way that though it mocks the cadre of DC Comics superheroes, it also is to the benefit of Batman (and Wonder Woman), who seem that much more serious about the task of dealing with the pervading corruption and crime of Frank Miller's world (though both Bats and WW seem more than a bit crazed). There is a lot of contrast between the maniacal seriousness of Batman versus the benign-attitude of the buddy-system in the Justice League. See the page enlarged.
