    There were actually plans for the third season to revolve around Hal being on the run from John Stewart after Sinestro framed him for a crime he didn't commit.

    I thought it was because the CG animation was more expensive that helped cancel them...

    Yeah, I'm not sure how it is today, but at the time the show came out CG animation was most definitely more expensive than "traditional" animation.

    I could've sworn the whole reason why they did it was because it was cheaper. They only animated the main characters and almost always dealt with the bad guys on wide open areas that didn't have much detail or back ground characters.

    So what would people want to see from the Morrison run in general? More character-driven issues? More intimate stories that don't involve the universe ending? More Earth action? Some reunions with Hal's old superhero friends? Or maybe him being out of his element somehow, etc. If you could choose, what would your ideal Hal story in this run be.

    I'd like to see stories that focus just as much on Hal the man as Hal the hero. Enough of him as the loose cannon who boldly goes where angels fear to tread, or a dumb jock with a superweapon as Geoff Johns portrayed him in early issues of New 52 Justice League which I absolutely HATED. Oh, yeah, maybe an earthbound adventure with Guy or Kyle.

    Does anyone know what that big shiny bubble thing is behind Hal Jordan? I have seen this picture before and have thought that aspect of it was... curious.

    It's called Cloud Gate and it's a sculpture in Millenium Park in Chicago I think this was originally a promo pic for C2E2.

    I've been hoping for Hal to return to earth. Get the chance to reconnect with his family and friends. And re-establish his impor5ance in the League.

    I don't know how possible that wish is given the current direction of the title. I just don't want Hal to be disconnected to the rest of the DCU.

    I don't mind earth or space but I hope the run explores Hal's character and shows Hal as an interesting and awesome character in his own right.

    Morrison said something about Hal saving the League in some story, but who knows how involved that will be?

    I certainly have hopes about Morrison's take on Hal, but I'm feeling like it will be more through showing than explaining, the way Johns did. Maybe it's the 200AD vibe they're going for, which I always thought was a little light on characterization. I haven't read too many stories from there, but it seemed to me the writing style there generally was more about commenting on the archetypes or personality types the characters represented rather than really trying to flesh them out and make them feel real. There always seemed to be more of a distance - where even the writers tended to think of their protagonists as "other" rather than a stand-in for the audience, which is what American audiences tend to gravitate towards.

    But ultimately, I'd be happy just to see Hal kick ass and not act like an impulsive jock.

    I wouldn't mind all of that to happen, at least in some form, to be honest.

    Pretty much. I find the character to be at his best when he's a badass who knows it, not an impulsive class clown.

    His importance in the League has sadly been diminishing with each introduction of a new Green Lantern. There are so many people nowadays who genuinely believe John Stewart was the founder GL and that's kinda sad. I think that's just what happens when you have way too many GLs - they can't just cram everyone on Earth. Before I thought four was slightly over kill, but they went ahead and introduced Simon, then Jessica. I may be biased, but I missed the good old days when Hal was the only one (not that I didn't like the others, but still...)

    I think the people who think John is a founding member are a portion of the people whose only familiarity to the Justice League came from the Bruce Timm cartoons. Over the past 15 years I believe DC has done a relatively decent job of making sure that people who were newly introduced to the DC universe are aware that Hal is a founding JL member, despite often putting other characters instead of him on the team. And ultimately the people that grew up during the social media age are seen as the current target audience since those of us that grew up in the 90s or early 2000s are starting to get a bit older. lol I would honestly have a hard time to believe that Gen Zs don't know who Hal Jordan is.
