    The Major is going to tell you no.
    Actually, it depends.
    If it was in a comic book story based on the animated series, it could count.

    But if it was just in the animated series you watched, then it wouldn't apply to the thread/poll question of
    Who was the first Earth-based "Green Lantern" you ever read in comic books?

    You mention “no change” several times in your summary. Part of that is that the poll won't let me change my vote. I think I originally voted for John Stewart (as I said, when I first seriously got into comics, it was during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and I got introduced to Hal, John, and Guy all at once; but I think I voted for John on the technicality that he was the only one of the three who was actually in uniform at the time); so subtract one from John and add one to the original Alan Scott.

    "no change" means that the number of votes are still the same for that entry since the last time I published the results. It has nothing to do with whether anybody tried to alter their vote or not.

    It does, actually. If the poll had allowed me to change my vote, then the vote totals for John Stewart and Golden Age Alan Scott would have changed.

    But since the polls don't allow that (at least not without divine or moderator intervention), what I mean by the choice of the wording "no change" is that there's no difference in the number / no additional votes for that choice since the previous time I had posted regarding the results.

    Mine is Alan Scott. It's one of a couple reasons why he is the only Green Lantern I recognize.

    D: I don’t know how to answer this one! The first Green Lantern I was even aware of was my man, Alan Scott. But when I started to read comics I was jumping between Alan and Hal.
