Comic Books, Part One: Flash and Green Lantern, The Hulk
The creators of Lost have worn their geek passions and inspirations proudly on their sleeves. Early in season 1, a Spanish-language comic book entitled Green Lantern and Flash: Faster Friends — in which the DC Universe heroes grapple with aliens, killer computers, and a polar bear — inspired fans (especially fanboy theorists) to speculate that The Island was one big living polar bear-inhabited spaceship. After Desmond got doused by The Island’s unique electromagnetic energy and became precognitive, nerd-wise Hurley compared him to The Hulk, another victim of energy bombardment. Cool — but if Hurley had dubbed him Dr. Manhattan, the radioactive, time-toggling hero of Watchmen (an oft-cited Lost touchstone), that would have been even cooler.
