^True. The current weaknesses are just writers' shortcuts, not technical deficiencies.

Remember when a GL's power ring was powerful enough to destroy a planet? Now they seem to barely be able to heat a can of beans with the things.

I mean, I completely get WHY, I just miss some of the grander deeds GLs used to do.

This is definitely going to have to be addressed at some stage. They'll only be able to justify [both in real world and in the comic universe] having that many Green Lanterns to Earth.

The problem is if they decide to reduce the earth GL numbers then what do you do with the characters they're dropping from GL. Uber-Kyle has been done to death and the numbers at the moment aren't good so they can't make a 3rd book featuring Blue Lanterns that he can star in. Guy atleast has his Warrior powers to fall back on [with some modification to make him less OP and look less like something out RAW] I'd rather that then having play musical Power Rings again.

If they ever kill of Kyle I'm done.

Making the current two titles casts a little different and getting competent creators is all the franchise needs. How is it the GLC have finally faced Starros, Brainiac, and come into contact with the New Gods yet still failed to tell a good enough story to get better numbers?

Sure the concept needs a little work, but the execution is where it's all falling flat. Venditti or whatever his name is supposed to be is a big part of that. He was pre-Rebirth, and now he's not doing any better post-Rebirth. YET HE'S STILL ON THE GLC TITLE?!?

The only way TPTB could be doing any worse is hiring Rob Liefeld on writing or art.

I doubt they'll kill off Hal again, John is safe due to diversity quota. Guy and Kyle are pretty much the expendables. After that they would have 1 White,1 Black, 1 Arab and 1 Latina. I'm sure someone in DC has already thought of this.

But I see no good reason to kill off Guy or Kyle. At all. And especially not while Baz or the crazy bitch are clinging to the page. Sadly, I cant see them killing off her because she's a woman. When she needs to go every bit as bad as the terrorist guy.

Kyle would be next to go for me, but he has so many fans I don't see it as a good idea. If the best they can do is make Kyle a god again they might as well kill him off because that crap is a death sentence for a character anyway. Keep him human with human problems. Kyle worked best when he was a Peter Parker type of character. Keep the real four and make good use of them. Hal and either Kyle or John in one title, and Guy and either Kyle or John in the other. GL isn't in a position to do 3 titles at the moment.
