Default Has Baz and Jessica united the Anti-Hal and/or Anti-Kyle fans?



Do people even hate on Kyle or Hal anymore? It seems like both groups within the fandom (both the steadfast Hal fans and the Kyle fans, formerly at war with one another in the 90s and 2000s) have called a truce to hate on Baz and Jessica.

No?

I'm now fine with the first four. I always loved Hal, Guy and John. And even Kyle now has grown on me because he has a different personality than the first three.

The last two sh*tbags? They gotz to GO.

Ditto what that guy said. Abruptly. Eaten by the sun. Carried in glory to the Lantern Crypt on Mogo, or wherever the hell it is now. Together. Forever. With Charlie Vicker.

It's probably true. At least when people are asking if anyone should be dropped, Kyle is less likely to be the choice now.

BTW: were there a lot of "anti-Hal" fans? I definitely am familiar with loyal Kyle fans and maybe some of them were leery of Rebirth because they suspected (rightly) Kyle would be sidelined, but in my experience they don't usually hate Hal or think he has to go. They just want more Kyle.

I want Hal to go... and become Parallax. Real Parallax. Does that count?

I'd say that counts.

Indeed. But I think it's the only case of that I'd heard. Take Ionfan, who would be the other most vocal Kyle supporter here. I don't want to put words in his mouth and I'm sure if DC asked him "only Hal or Kyle can exist from now on," he'd pick Kyle; but he also liked Hal in the movie and cartoons.

For my part, I'm Hal all the way, but I'm fine with Kyle sticking around. Gun to my head, three Earth lanterns have to die and he's not making it out alive, but other than that unlikely scenario the big four are fine.

That's exactly how I feel about them.

Honestly, there are just too many at this point. Period. It is just too much to balance. I'm not sure there's any good solution, though.

I kinda still dislike Hal a little for the same reason I dislike Jess and Baz. His disproportionate association and favoritism by Geoff Johns. If it wasnt for that he probably would be one my top 3 but I prefer Kyle, John and Guy by far. Hal would need to go to some rough times before I can even begin to sympathize with him. Or like Andrew NDB said, go real Parallax again :P

When I frequent other comic book themed message boards, I rarely see hatred for any particular Lanterns. Some fans think that the ring concept is wacky, but anyone with even the basic knowledge of DC knows how large the GLC is and understands that it's a panoramic story with loads of characters.

When I see criticisms of Baz, it's usually that his origin was uneven or that his costume is weird. Of course, there are fans who don't like the fact that he's Muslim, but that seems to be a small segment.

As for Jessica, she's too new to have garnered a significant amount of haters. Most veteran comic fans don't seem to be well-acquainted with her story, and her fans seem to be mostly teens and kids.

I'm not really a hater of any Lantern characters, but I definitely don't like how Baz and Cruz have basically forced into the spotlight. Green Lanterns isn't that bad though, so I can't entirely complain.

I've always been a big fan of both Kyle / Hal, so I'm a bit of an odd-duck I suppose, though. Kyle gets a lot of points just because when I started reading Green Lantern, he was the main Green Lantern.
