I think every 2814 Sector Green Lanterns (including Alan Scott as well, although he's from some other kind of sources!) are considerably the best Green Lanterns. It's just a matter of time and methods on how Geoff Johns and the other DC Comics writers proofing them to be. I just wish to see Guy Gardner rise and shine

Soon only Guy will wear that title.

But it means no disrespect to any of the tohers.

I don't think any GL should be declared the greatest, I mean look at what happened to the last three that bore that title. Sinestro-went rouge and did his best to destroy the Corps. Hal- went rogue and did destroy the Corps. Kyle- suborned into being Parallax and fought the Corps. So what happens to Guy if he gets the title? My guess is he goes Warrior again, has a psychotic breakdown, and destroys Oa.

hell ... that comes with the title. Who knows that Guy Gardner, the 2814 GL which considered as man-ape among his other friends, is the only one who is capable to overcome such risk, with his own stubborness?

That could make a new history of the GL storylines

Hey, it doesn't detract from the other Lanterns and meanwhile it boosts Guy. I think it's a great idea.

Like I said, it's big possibilities with Guy Gardner.

I'm still in the "I'll believe it when I see it." mode. Johns has shit on Guy too much [having his neck nearly snapped twice and having to be carried around by John as well] to believe Guy will emerge as the Greatest Green Lantern.

I'd just take it that, while Guy will officially be the greatest GREEN lantern, Hal will have been catapulted in to a new level by having him be able to effectively be able to tap into all the lantern powers, we've seen him use the yellow rings with limited success, ganthet wants him to be the leader of the blue lantern, he's become a red lantern, we've seen him be greedy with the taking of the other lanterns rings (orange), star sapphires want him (violet), he's essentially been dead (black). We'll have to see how his compassion will lead the indigo lanterns to him.

So Hal Jordan will no longer be the greatest Green Lantern, he will become the greatest Lantern.

Just a wild thought, we'll have to wait until the summer to see.

I know I've seen the same thing too about Guy being the greatest. I think it may have been in wizard but I'm not sure as it's been awhile.

However I would like the real "Greatest Green Lantern" to stand up. Hal, Guy, or Sinestro. They've all been in some way shape or form referred to as The Greatest Green Lantern.

Well, since Sinestro was the first we've heard of being called the greatest green lantern, then followed by his protege Hal Jordan both of which have skewed horribly off course, leaving guy the only one who hasn't gone completely ape-shit enough to be labeled as a renegade lantern, so I guess in theory that would put him high in the running for title of greatest green lantern. Since he's the only non-renegade greatest green lantern, even if he is very bull-headed.

I wonder how long it will take in this event for Guy to nearly have his neck broken [for the 3rd time] and be carried around by John or Kyle [for the 3rd time]

I agree with the no sacrific thing. There's been enough earth GL death for now. I looked for this article as well. I found a lot of articles by Johns about blackest night. In particular he mentions multiple times that he is focusing on Hal and he also said "No fan, he said, has reason to hate Kyle, Hal, John Stewart, or Guy Gardner simply because they prefer one over the others"

Interview with Geoff John where he mentions above quote: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=17483 That's what a link is btw.....proof is good.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find an article about Guy's role in Blackest Night......

I don't understand your reasoning behind that. I mean wasn't it disrespectful to Sinestro when he was stripped of that title and it was given to Jordan?

Also I find your "Soon only Guy will wear that title" comment a little disturbing. I mean are you imagining the guardians writing a new law in the Book of Oa OFFICIALLY declaring Guy and NO ONE ELSE the "greatest GL of all"? I just don't see that happening. I mean as it is right now with Hal, the title is his by general concensus alone, but it's still up for debate (See message boards).

Again, I think it detracts a little. I mean Hal had the title....now he doesn't?

I need to see it. If it is real I hope it's done well. As long as it's written well I'll have no beef with it.

What no love for Kyle or John?? I mean this is why people shouldn't pay as much attention to the "greatest" title anyway. Despite Hal currently having the title I don't think he's better than the other earth GL's. See arguments in Kyle forum.

Bottom line - None of the earth GL's are slackers. All are very willful and very strong. Stop hating. Stop focusing on "Who's the greatest" GL is a team. That's what makes them awesome.

I agree. I'm hoping that Blackest Night will give ALL the earth GL's a chance to shine. I hope the people of earth recognize all of them, but if they don't......well GL is a universal drama and ultimately earth is a small piece of the larger picture.

Anyway... I do hope to see all lanterns be recognized, some more than others. I hope they single out individuals of other corps too. Over all I would like to see BN show more than one character and give others their chance to shine.

It would be a nice feather in the cap for Guy...Alan, Hal and Kyle have held down the top spot in the comic, John had the main role in the cartoon, it's nice they're finally throwing Guy a bone.

And I feel compelled to remind everyone that the "Guy will become the Greatest Green Lantern in Blacket Night!" was from an alternate timeline in Booster Gold #1 and #2, a timeline in which Hal never got a ring but Guy got it instead. The timeline was fixed so things wouldn't play out that Guy would be the greatest GL in BN... Hal, if anything.
