> Fair enough on the first two, but aren't we talking how much fear they they generate as themselves? People are bed-wettingly scared of the Joker based on his reputation alone.
And wouldn't a Sinestro ring select OTHER qualities besides fear-inducing? If fear-inducing was its only criteria, wouldn't those Batman fears be selected, too?
That would include his entire Rogues' Gallery, and perhaps several of his allies (unless they made Batman more trusting in this new continuity). As such, wouldn't Superman, Martian Manhunter, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman (especially as she's been shown to kill) be "more" worthy of owning such a ring?
As a Green Lantern ring seeks out honest and fearless people, so should a Sinestro ring seek out those who are DISHONEST and fear-inducing.
