It would be a travesty if DC axed him and left Baz, who I see as utterly worthless.

I'll be honest, I do miss the days when it was Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner. I've been reading some old Gerard Jones comics lately, and I think those three characters played off of and complimented each other really well. Say what you will about Jones (and I certainly won't defend him), I do believe he wrote some of the strongest stuff Green Lantern has had, and regardless of whatever else, I won't take that away from him.

Things have gotten way out of hand with the number of GLs these days, and all the characters suffer for it.
I agree with all that. Adding Kyle was a blunder but it's too late to undo that, so putting him in Titans is the best solution.

To me the best era of GL was with Hal, Guy and John -- Englehart through Jones. My biggest beef with Johns is that he depicted himself as the greet restorer, but in fact he didn't respect anything that any previous writer had done.
