In before Zod beat everyone and Hal comes to save the day, lets just remember that Stewart and Rayner are the ones who actually know how to handle Kryptonians

Kyle has made Ultraman his bitch in more than one occasion and John did take out Supes that one time in rebirth. I think there are more examples but would have to double check on that later



Anoher thing, shouldt there be a monument or something to bugallax since it saved the Earth from the Final Night?

That yellow bug is a HERO the sun couldt have be reignited if it wasnt for bugallax

Right. According to Johns Hal never did anything wrong in his life and everyone else is WEAK for being possesed by bugallax. The only bad thing Hal as ever done is havig daddy issues or something like that and..oh yea NO FEAR!

The thing that bothers me is that I actually like Hal or so I thought. Yes I was hyped for the return of Hal back in 2004 if only I knew this is how Geoff Johns would slowly kill the franchise...

An alternative I think Hal needs to join or create another Corps and replace Sinestro (no one want him anymore) as the parallax point of view, since that was the whole point of the name he picked in the first place. “Parallax View” to see things from another perspective opposite to the Guardians or John Stewart Corps in this case while none beign evil, the dynamic this could bring would be most interesting.

Believe it or not, I actually liked Hal Jordan, too. Mainly from the Gerard Jones comics and the 1980s Steve Englehart comics. Geoff Johns soured me on that character due to the fanboyish writing, his general annoying characterization (tries to be Han Solo or something, but just comes off as a jerk and dummy to me whereas Han has something Hal Jordan lacks and can believably pull it off... more annoying still is this jerk and dummy somehow makes everything work for him because NO FEAR! ["I don't know how"], which often caused me to root against him), and the constant not so subtle reminders that Hal Jordan is top dog and all the other human Lanterns are subservient to him. And that's the version that has more or less been Hal Jordan since. It also didn't help that I generally did not like Geoff Johns' Green Lantern concepts or stories.

I really want to like Hal again but neither Johns nor Venditti are making it easy

If I have to read one more time about him beign the “Greatest Green Lantern of them all” Im just...gointo...dont know...I guess Ill debate it lol

Carol certainly didnt think Hal was the greatest when she chose Kyle

Also I just changed my av and sig to represent better my parallax views

Av = the real Parallax/Hal Jordan in The Final Night
Sig = geoff johns generic bug monster raping Hal

I liked this issue quite a bit even though I'm lukewarm to the Controllers. The Four Corpsmen idea was the epitome of coolness since that's how the four long-time Earth GLs should see each other by this point. Also, the drama with Ganthet agonizing over Sayd's possible end was a nice set up for the next issue.
