I really like her GL uniform.

I think the powers that be wanted to get away from that cheesecake deal going on with Soranik's costume, with the boobs near hanging out. Of course that will appeal to some people, and turn others away. I'm pretty indifferent myself.

I was thinking of mentioning Dorine. If I was to write Hal Jordan, I'd likely do something unexpected like bring back Dorine, or, depending on the situation, Olivia Reynolds. Dorine is cool because she works both on Earth and in space, you really can't say that about a lot of these characters, and she has a pretty neat old school classic science fiction background.

As for Carol Ferris, I think she's interesting because her relationship with Hal Jordan is SO dysfunctional, and that's actually sort of unique. It actually seems like something that can't and won't work (if Carol is written as her classic self, which I don't believe she has been for a while), but the characters keep gravitating back to each other.

If this was real, I don't believe Carol Ferris is the best, healthiest love interest for Hal Jordan (and neither is Arisia, because of all the obvious weirdness going on in their history). That Cowgirl character may have been, but I don't know if she will ever come back.

The thing with Carol and Hal is that they are waaay to much alike, both are pilots, they grew up as childhood friends, they both are too proud and yes they fight more than not. A literal love-hate relationship thats why I was pro Kyle/Carol even tho I prefer Sora. Oppsites attract thats why Carol went with Kyle and the age difference actually made it look more adult and like a real relationship than Hal and Carol are DESTINED becouse Geoff Johns says so.


I dont believe in Lois and Clark couples that are supposed to be together no matter what. I think that make them more like doomed relationships to begin with. Look at Batman or Spiderman just to name the ones at the top of my head. That made them most like tragic relationships.

If it has to be Carol or Arisia for Hal he should go with Arisia even if it is a little creepy. Carol would be this circle all over again unless he marry her and we all know thats not happening.

And I still think Carol/Kyle needs clousure. Becouse it happened. Even if DC go out of their way and never mention it again then Im just going to assume Carol and Kyle are still lovers/friends with benefits even if hes dating Soranik lol.

I certainly agree with that. I think it's really cheap to never mention that relationship or explain what happened to it.

It's funny, but I think Carol had a more functional relationship with Kyle Rayner than she did with Hal Jordan, too. Even if it did just kind of come out of nowhere and was a little strange from a conceptual point of view.

I think the reason that was done is because Carol is primarily looked at, and PRIMARILY IS, a love interest, and little else. That's why she was created. That's her role. And at the time, she was a regular in Kyle Rayner's book, not Hal Jordan's. So the writers just made her Kyle Rayner's love interest. It doesn't seem like they can get her to comfortably fit in Hal Jordan's adventures when he's not on Earth working at Ferris Aircraft.

Yeah, but we all know couples like that--we saw one of them with someone who made more sense but they keeping going back to prize-fight relationship.

Why? What's doomed about Lois and Clark? There are certain characters that are just associated in fiction. Arthur goes with Guinevere. Robin Hood goes with Maid Marian. Superman goes with Lois.

I don't remember them hooking up. Actually, I wouldn't put Batman in the same category. Recently, Catwoman has become his standard and Talia was the baby mama, but he was never associated with one character the way Clark and Diana are.

But it's not creepy anymore. She's an adult by any standard now.

Heheh. I was thinking more along the lines of what the setting and direction of the overall story would be. Would it take place on Earth or in space? Evergreen City, Coast City, or wandering around again? Who would the other regular characters be, and so on.

So, the story they are hiding from us is how Hal came and stuck his sword between Kyle and Carol while they were sleeping, finishing their relationship

That analogy does work to a certain extent. A few of us basically just called Kyle the ladies' man of the group. Hal is certainly the seasoned top dog with "first dibs."
