    I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I'm just disappointed they'd rather stuff Jessica in a story full of unrelated characters to push her than thinking about making an animation movie based on GL comics.

    I actually enjoyed Justice League War. I agree some plots about Hal are misleading but he is a lively, eye-catching character in it, and has interesting chemistry with Batman. I don't think the flaws are fatal.

    Just showing up is not the same with making a story specifically to push a character.
    I just can't believe I've been waiting for an animated movie based on Green Lantern comics for so long. And they'd rather make up a completely new story with LOSH in it. Yeah I get it. After all she doesn't have many stories to adapt for films.
    i know how that feels...

    excited to see hal in reign of superman, hopefully everybody gets treated with.. uhmm... respect...

    Hal is supposed to be hyper-competent, like Batman. The difference is that Hal does not go around wearing a PTSD patch, and non-haters are naturally drawn to his charisma.

    DC should have made replaced Didio with Grant.

Trying to find common ground with this guy I mean hes a test pilot, hes very cool, hes got no fear, he rushes into things because hes so good at everything that he can usually handle anything. Thats not me. Hes The Right Stuff guy, as you said, and hes got the ego and confidence. In the continuity of DC Comics, too, this guy is weird. Hes lived, hes died, hes been reborn, hes had these cosmic adventures and hes got the psychology that hes actually been able to handle all of that. A lot of the thing in superhero comics these days is about their trauma and P.T.S.D. and the fragility of superheroes. But Hal Jordan is beyond any of that. Its a big challenge. What would he be like to talk to? Hes not the same as the rest of us
    nice to see grant's take on who hal is. would have liked to see how he would have handled hal as a team player in the league.

    Those two pages almost made me cry, so damn beautiful. Perfect mix of Silver Age insanity and playful satire. I was like "Yeah! Tell 'em Hal!"

    I dont know about this run.

    Three issues in and I'm still reading, but after each issue I find I'm more and more just rolling my eyes at how 'Morrison' it all is.

    It isnt really fun, it's just a headache for the sake of it, and while it looks pretty, I really dont think it's for me.

    Especially given how different Hal is from Kyle, who GM wrote during his JLA run. In that run he was writing the young rookie amongst the pillars of DC, here he's writing the guy who is one of those pillars and he knows it. I do wish to see Morrison write Justice League again regardless of which characters he uses.

    Morrison can do no wrong with DC in my eyes.

    Hal Jordan arresting a whole planet? Awesome.

    (And somebody calling him a "fascist." Where's Ollie when you need him?)

    That whole page of Hal punching the Shepherd with a winged boxing glove, and then wrapping construct police tape around the entire earth to arrest it while they boo him is solid gold. This was an excellent issue all around.
