Green Lantern versus a giant poo

I recently took part in Alison Broverman‘s Popcorn Panel for the Post, discussing the film, Green Lantern. While I really enjoyed the Ryan Reynoldness of it, the success of the superhero blockbuster rests on the villain. Think Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson’s The Joker. Alfred Molina’s Dr. Octopus.

In Green Lantern, how can anyone be threatened by a reclusive scientist with a bulgy head or a swirling mass of world-eating poop?
