    I liked the grey hair, made him looked more expirienced. Remember gray hair can get to you in your late 20+, so it doesn't matter how hal was he could have gray hair.

    I liked that it was explained it was the first signs of Parallax taking over. Hal Jordan ain't no Reed Richards. I didn't care for them.

    as shallow as it might sound, I find him hotter with grey temples.

    actually Hal should only be about 35 in comic book age right?

    Parallax being the cause for his gray hair is just lame. I would have much preferred it if we saw a panel where Hal was in his bathroom and there was a box of Just For Men on his sink counter top.

    I think Rebirth is a great story and very well written... but there are a lot of nonsensical aspects to Hal's return.

    I actually liked Hal's greying temples (of course I also liked him as Parallax...)

    They made him look more distinguished and showed he was just entering early middle age (as he should be)

    Cheers.

    if its true that Hal got is grey temples from Parallax or that Parallax just added abit more grey, then I think its good that he still has it.

    Wait for it nw, here I go reading too much into a situation:
    its kinda fair to say that Parallax was a bad guy, so mayb the grey temples remaining are a permanent reminder to Hal of all the bad things he did as Parallax and how he gave into his own fears.

    but I reckon the grey has in fact gotten smaller since Rebirth.

    Hal's grey temples was good for the story at the time (Emerald Twilight) and the Parallax infestation explanation was feasible. As mentioned by a few others, if the rest of the DCU aged with him, fine but you can't have an aged Hal while everyone else stays the same. As of now, I like Hal without the grey. Besides, I associate the grey temples with mad, power-hungry villains like Vandal Savage and Ra's Al Ghul.

    I never had a problem with Reed Richards' gray temples. He doesn't seem extremely old to me, just... hmm... distinguished. I got to know Green Lantern as a concept during the "Hal had gray temples" era, so that's how it stuck with me. I'm not angry they're gone, but if they had stayed, that would have been okay with me.

    That was my complaint

    Hal got older, but Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman, and the rest of the DCU stayed young.

    I didn't mind them but felt they only worked if he age progressed along with the other Silver Age heroes. I didn't like them when you saw Batman, Wonder Woman or Superman looking like they are in the late 20s. One thing I loved about GL is the history to it so I wouldn't mind a Grey templed Hal and a Salt/Peppered John to show the history and progression along with Guy and Kyle but it just doesn't work when you tie him to other heroes. I'm glad they are gone.

    *Stephanie on her "Death-bed" asked Bruce if she was ever really Robin or if it was just a ploy to get Tim to come back Batman told her she was truly Robin for that time
    Technically, Bruce only did go through four Robins as Damien didn't get the nod 'til Dick took over but the general public doesn't know Batman is now the former Nightwing


    Don't know why I wasn't thinking about Damien, guess I was stuck on Bruce's Robins
