Those aren't perscription specs; Sardath be styling.Plus, Rann has the whole "no (or at most, one, on the whole flippin' planet) children" thing going for it. And the big killer guard-cats made of water.Even if we leave aside the whole "which one of these planets has repeatedly tried to conquer earth" issue, the reasonable person must go with Rann, because Jetpacks have always been cooler than wings.
There are no children on Rann?Never heard THAT one before, but I'm sure they all live forever and occasionally have to decant an embryo whenever a giant monster eats an adult...Jetpacks ARE cooler than wings; but they AREN'T cooler than Nth metal!
The reference is from the Swamp Thing Adam Strange story (And the mini-series that quickly followed it, no doubt), from the halcyon days when the governments of Rann and Thanagar got along perfectly well, at least when it came to plotting against Earth. 'Course, Strange and Swampy had to go and wreck that peace initiative, sowing the seeds for much future conflict and discord. Anyhow, in it it was established that Adam and Alanna's kid was the first conceived in twenty years or so...And wasn't Nth metal invented by an Earthling and only stolen by the Thanagaran IP-thieves and copycats?
Hm, no, in current "continuity", Nth metal is native to Thanagar and only came to Earth in a Hawkship that landed in ancient Egypt.
Nth Metal's provenance is immaterial.Jetpacks. Jetpacks are coolness made fles -- uh, metal and liquid fuel.Jetpacks.Adam Strange knew it.Commando Cody knew it.Boba Fett knew it.Zot knew it. Know you know it.
