Our first good look at that bird-faced alien Green Lantern Tomar-Re

We got a fleeting look at this senior member of the Green Lantern Corps in the first GL trailer—here's a much better image of the beaked-and-finned Xudarian who'd be a mentor to Hal Jordan.

There are, I suppose, only but so many ways to make an orange-skinned alien with a beak for a mouth and a fin-hawk look good. And I'll leave it to you to decide whether the Green Lantern team, under the direction of Martin Campbell, pulled it off.

But I think they made a wise choice going thin-and-wiry instead of thick-and-muscley for Tomar, a scientist with an artist's heart who would serve as Hal Jordan's teacher and ally in the Green Lantern Corps—and who lives in the shadow of his greatest failure: his inability to save the planet Krypton from destruction.
