What are yours?

I'll have to think about this. I'll get back to you.

Love the Steve Vance appreciation in your list though. He always felt like the logical replacement for Marz. Too bad they went with Winick instead.

Yeah, I'd have to really look over all of what happened in that time to see if something was more important.

But this was a good issue and well explained. I liked highlighting the destruction of Oa because that kind of has gotten lost in comic history. I remember reading that as a teenager and thinking "whoa, is Oa actually gone?!"

Also, Andrew has more Hal love than I realized.

I noticed that immediately and questioned if Hal as Parallax was more interesting to him than Kyle LOL. Seven of the ten of his 'Top 10' directly included Hal/Parallax. I'm a bit bummed he didn't include a few other highlights. IDK if I'll have ten, but here's a few in no particular order.

1.) GL #55 - The Zero Hour tie-in had the younger Alan Scott telling a rookie Kyle about the legacy before him.

2.) Hero Quest [issues #71-73] - Kyle learns a few new lessons from heroes such as Batman, Alan Scott [now called Sentinel], Wonder Woman, and Capt. Marvel/Shazam.

3.) GL/Sentinel Heart of Darkness - A three issue mini that has Kyle team up with Alan to rescue Jade from the sentient Starheart and her mind controlled brother Obsidian.

4.) GL/Flash Faster Friends - I can't remember if this was written by Marz, but it dealt with the struggling friendship/rivalry of GL and Flash before they were in the JLA together. Kyle wasn't a JLA member till the #80's issues of his run IIRC.

5.) Burning in Effigy - Kyle is given an arch-nemesis and Marz toys with the idea of an opposing force to the GLC made up of different alien adversaries. Issues #113-114 introduced the character after several end of the issue cameos beforehand, and later used the concept in his final arc through #121-124.

That's a good one.
