Default Could Kyle Hook Up With Carol?!? He does.

On the off-chance that it is Carol in the New Guardians book, what would it do to the GLU if Kyle had a fling with Hal's ex? I don't think it would be as meaningless as Tempest hooking up with Dolphin in the Aquaman books, and I could see Guy giving Hal hell for Kyle stealing his main squeeze.

Would you support it? Would it piss you off? At the very least Kyle would be hooked up with an Earth woman again....

No. It would create the type of drama that I just have no interest in reading.

Anything at this point would be better than Kyle being attached at the hip to Natu....

Could it happen? Anything is possible

Is it a good idea? No way. It would be artificial shock value dross. He doesn't need to be with anyone. Especially not Carol. Besides, if Hal is her type then I doubt she would go for Kyle.

However as we have seen, at the moment DC is all about stupid ideas.

Yeah younger guys hook up with older women all the time, especially one's probably old enough to be there mother! It's a scary thought that's for sure!

Remember the main point of the new universe is to put a little youth back into the characters. If Hal has only be GL for roughly five years where does that put the others in terms of service and age?

To me it'd be like Kyle stealing the quarterback's cheerleader girlfriend. It's not something I'd want to see long term, but it could put Hal and Kyle at odds. As far as Lanterns partnering up, Hal and Kyle haven't done anything as a tag-team in the same sense that Hal's teamed with John and Guy a few times in the last couple years. They should've partnered up or had some interaction by now. If it takes sleeping with Carol to get Kyle and Hal in the same book without the rest of the Corps so be it.

Um GL is suppose to be mostly unaffected by the reboot. So I don't think anyone will be deaging (discounting the JLA reboot).

I'm sorry but that just sounds ridiculous and made me

Is the premise of Kyle hooking up with Carol plausible? Yes. Should it be done if the stole purpose is to get Kyle/Hal to interact with each other? Hell no, I mean even you have to admit that that kind of mindset just sounds ludicrous.

I think it's a good idea. If it's done right that is.

Let's just go for "no" on this one. Short lived shock value for the sake of just isn't good enough.

You know how they are both members of the same peacekeeping force with the same home planet in the same country. Would that not be reason enough to have them team up? Just a thought.

Worst idea since Greedo shooting first. Then again Kyle is always getting Hal's sloppy seconds anyway.

Really? I don't think so at all. I mean, yes, I would be surprised, but only because Carol is almost as much a part of Hal's character as Alex is a part of Kyle's. The only thing that's artificial is the unwritten rule that superheroes can't date each other's primary love interests!

I would actually be impressed if Kyle and Carol were allowed to have a relationship. It would be a genuinely bold move, unlike other recent "shocking" plot twists such as the "new GL of Sector 2814."

Because it would make for a far more interesting character story than anything we've seen in several years. I have never really bought into Kyle's relationship with Sora; that's the relationship that seems artificial and forced to me. There have been moments when I almost believe it, but they've been short lived.

As for Kyle and Carol, Carol expressed pretty strongly in Brightest Day that she's done with Hal, and that she no longer even thinks that what they had was "true love." And Hal supposedly has a girlfriend anyway.

So why wouldn't Carol eventually be looking for someone else? And why couldn't that someone else be Kyle? Kyle is very different from Hal in key ways that could make him attractive to Carol, given the nature of her frustrations with Hal. And if they're on this team together, literally the only human beings within light years of each other, I don't think it would be artificial at all. In fact, it could potentially be much more natural than Kyle's relationship with Sora.

I do think that it would put a monster sized twist in the friendship between Hal and Kyle. But I also think that the characters' history with Hal would make the relationship between Kyle and Carol more interesting. I don't personally have a problem with relational drama in comic books the way some people do; I actually like it. This could create a lot of interesting drama--not between Kyle and Hal, but between Kyle and Carol. I'd like to see how they would deal with the fact that Hal is Carol's ex.

But even if you ignore that obvious drama, Kyle and Carol have very different perspectives when it comes to Hal. Kyle has spent much of his career living up to Hal's example or striving to get out of his shadow. Carol has been Hal's lover, yes, but also his superior and his rival. With or without romantic involvement, I would be interested in seeing how that plays out in their relationship.

Not to get off topic but Cowgirl is a terrible love interest!
