The League has had diverse members for decades, you don't lose diversity by having Hal on the team. You can always change the team members depending on the story and there's no need at all to be stuck with the usual 7 member roster. I can understand the notion that he's been around for a long time and can be seen as more limited in terms of story potential, but I never understood the diversity argument. When was the last time Hal even was a regular main JL member for an extended period of time anyway, the early 80s? That was long before entertainment culture realized the need for better representation.
    Depends on what you mean by an extended period of time. Once the original League was shuttered by Aquaman during the JLDetroit era, no one has had an uninterrupted run as a member, including Hal.

    Hal was a member of the League from 1960 to the early 80s, at which point he was exiled to space, returned, then quit and clawed his way back again. During that period, John filled in a bit, before Guy took over for the Bwa-Ha-Ha JLI era.

    When that ended, Hal resumed his membership and assumed leadership of the JLI until Emerald Twilight happened, then Kyle took over for a few years, then John again until Hal resumed his membership for another several years until early on in the New 52, only to return again at the end of that era for Darkseid War, after which Jessica & Simon took over for a bit until Hal returned for Metal, then passed the reins to John again. And, if we count all the big events that have taken place since Legends, Hal has been the main GL in every single big event, barring the times when he's been dead (and, even then, he often showed as the Spectre).

    I can't say Hal has been underserved as a member of the League. Only Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman & Flash have more issues as a member than him.

And besides, any great character tends to show why they have the staying power that they do, so I'm certain that Hal Jordan will still be around long after DiDio's ousting.

    It would be a big thing to have Hal as the main in the planned HBO series.

    Hope to hear some news soon.

    Yeah... He would probably have a movie trilogy now.

    Well... I just watched Superman Red Son animation. It's total garbage, even worse than Hush.

    How was Hal and the other GL's handled?
