Green Lantern doing anything particularly bad-ass with his powers is good in my book! Or comic book, I'd guess. Ha, I made a funny!
Actually, does Green Lantern use his abilities more creatively in the New 52? The idea of a hero with the power to bring his imagination to life is pretty appealing to me, but more often than not he just made giant fists and hammers; as such, seeing him make swords like this is pretty cool.
