The sales numbers don't lie. If Green Lantern is "all about no capes," as has been said in this thread, then the no capes are a failure, because Green Lantern is not selling
Y'know, you do raise and interesting point, though. By my own logic, it seems like when they decided to "re-invent" GL for the Silver Age, they should have just come up with a new character instead of calling it GL, because they DID change the GL concept pretty drastically. I guess I never really think of that because Silver Age GL was my entry point (and the version I liked a whole lot better, even after learning of the original). So I guess I'm a bit hypocritical on that score.

What if they went with a different color when they rebirthed the franchise during the Silver Age, like in that Fringe alternate universe episode? Perhaps that would have increased sales since red is a more attractive, brash, in-your-face color. This was obviously before all that emotional spectrum stuff took hold.

Am I the only one who loves the more modern interpretation of GL, emotional spectrum and all?

If you do that, you'll hurt Trey's feelings. He created the emotional spectrum! He created crayons!

If I had created the emotional spectrum, I would say that I screwed up and would get rid of it.

Tell you what. I'm gonna say that bringing the Golden Age JSA to the present was YOUR idea. If Jim Lee or Dan DiDio then say they thought of it, I'll defend you. I bet they won't say that though.

Except exiling and bringing back the JSA has been done several times over the decades. The people who came up with that died of old age.

Instead of changes to the original Silver Age concept I would like to see the comic return more to it's roots. The comic has gotten too far away from what made it popular with readers.

I don't want to see a reboot where the timeline is started over, just fix things and keep going.

I'll say that was your idea too. Let's see DDio or Lee step up and claim that one of them thought of it, and you didn't.

The JSA have been brought the the present just as much as the Legion, but I'm sure Trey doesn't recognize that as having happened either. Next thing you know he's gonna tell us it was HIS idea to bring Swamp Thing into the mainstream DCU along with Constantine....

Bread was round too till he told them it'd sell better in square slices, he helped them figure out how to ship it too.

LMFAO.
