I've never been much of a fan of the original Alan Scott comic, even though I liked what I saw of the character when he appeared in GL in later years.

Hard to argue that the casting isn't good though.

Still, I feel good enough about my own casting that I don't feel cheesy voting for myself. (Even if I end up being the only one. )

I'm voting for Emerald Dawn because it would look better, effect-wise, especially with Spielberg around. The casting is spot-on in both.

I just realized that, if we get the same voters as we did last round, both these will be decided by Deadpool. Which could be bad news for me.

Don't be so sure, he could vote for you just cuz you think he won't. I'm praying he won't though!

Sigh. Well, I can't fault anybody for voting against me, but darn it if I didn't think I had strong enough teams that ONE of them would have made it through this round.

I'm sorry to see you lose out, Ed, but I'm more sorry for the sake of Adam Strange not advancing; I voted for Golden Age Green Lantern here.

Thanks. I actually feel the same way. (Well, except for the voting for Golden Age GL here part. Not that I don't TOTALLY understand why you did.)

Of course, given the nature of the Draft, had I picked any other GL story I really COULDN'T have used this cast, since they would probably have been either too old or too young. I sure wasn't going to pick anything from Action Comics Weekly, and the last GL comics before that were too long ago for these choices. And once the monthly started up, Hal was older and Quaid wouldn't have fit him. And Sinestro was unavailable. And once Hal was younger again, Quaid would have been too old.

Ah well.

Thanks!
I'm hoping everyone else feels the same way, I don't think I could take another loss to Heide in the finals...

Um, that just demonstrates my point. Hal was older, too old for Quaid in that era to play. Sinestro was non-existent. I'm not saying I couldn't have cast that story, but I couldn't have cast that story with THIS cast. Since you were talking about how you would have voted for any other story with THIS cast, I was pointing out how that wouldn't have worked, since there were no other stories at that time that would have used them well.
