Wouldnt the correct anwser be half mexican/half irish then?

The point of saying latino is for no to be naming his heritage every single time.

Touche!

But you bring up a good point, GL already was overflowing with diversity and have done their part. Kill the other two NOW!

Let me tell you about an adventure in diversity at DC.

DC had originally planned to bring back the GLC minus Hal in Green Lantern #150, Kyle's run. They set it up with a story called Legacy: The Last Will and Testament of Hal Jordan, written by Joe Kelly. They made a very bad move and never published it in comic book form, which guaranteed that almost nobody saw it. Anyway it was an excellent story, in which Tom Kamalku restored Oa and the Corps.

But Geoff Johns was rising to ascendancy at the time, and he said, whoa, wait, you can't do this without my boy Hal! And, unfortunately, he got his way. This delayed the restoration process by almost three years! Well, why in the hell couldn't they have done it without Hal? The best move would have been to go ahead and bring back the Corps, and worry about bringing back Hal later.

That was an immediate warning signal that Geoff's decisions about the property wouldn't always be as golden as the high-ups at DC believed.

Anyway, it left DC scrambling to come up with a big story to mark Green Lantern #150. And Judd Winick pitched one that he thought was huge -- to reveal that Kyle was half Mexican!

No, I'm not kidding. Winick and DC really did think that was a big deal.

When the issue was published, I was among many people who went to the old DC boards to mock the "significance" of the story. Who gave a shit whether Kyle was half Mexican, and why?

And to make matters worse, Winick then came to the board and called the people who were mocking the story "a bunch of racists!"

So really, DC has been on a bad path with "diversity" in Green Lantern for a long time.

Maybe they should look at the shitty sales numbers and spend some time worrying about those instead.

Puffing it up or not aside its still spiraling towards cancellation numbers. They'll have to do something eventually.

Not too late to turn him into a My Pretty Pony Lantern with rainbows shooting out of his asshole, and rings on every hoof.

Just sayin'!

The latest numbers.

HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #35 $2.99 29,203

GREEN LANTERNS #37 $2.99 26,055

This is the lowest the sales have dropped since the end of Kyle's run, when DC finally gave in after years of intransigence and brought back Hal and the Corps.

Are you ready to tap out and reboot the property, DC? Or do you want the armbar to be applied to you for a while longer?

I understand that some older readers will never, under any circumstances, accept any reboot. But it's not about them.

Green Lantern sales are in the gutter. Rather than type my thoughts out in text, I may as well post this video I made on the subject:

The end of Kyle's run only sucked because they kept him in space and made him Hal-lite to the point he was saying shit like "great Guardians!"

I'm tickled by the decline of GLseses, getting down to 26k, but saddened by the regular title not selling much better.

DC is charging only $2.99 for the two Green Lantern titles. They're the company's lowest selling $2.99 comics.

Ouch!
