I'm trying to go for that nice dynamic lighting effect of games like Legend of Dungeon. Obviously, we can't do that level of effect, but at least a nice glow would be nice. I'm still not seeing a plugin that just makes a sprite glow without the blur. On top of that one that can change color on the fly.
Below are 3 sprites. 1 with C2 glow and a sprite above to make it easy to see, the next is without the C2 Glow and the final one is something i added via Photoshop. A sprite with an "Outter Glow".

I know the easiest way to do this, make a sprite with a glow, and use additive and use 2 sprites. This seems like a lot of work when we have access to WebGL...
