Maybe just have Hal be a space drifter/adventurer drifting from planets to planets with very different settings, kind of like Doctor Who.

    For a horror book to really work with Hal as a character, I think you'd have to make the horror more existential in a way that highlights what makes the character tick (what really makes him a man without fear or what overcoming great fear really means). But that's not going to work for a DCU spanning event like DC vs. Vampires, so I don't really have any complaints of Hal not taking up a protagonist role in this kind of a story. It would work better imo in the context of a Hal/GL-centric story.
    Well said. Hal always works best as a solo operator anyway.

    Let's see how this ends I guess. Out in two weeks.

    1 - Weird that he's in the armor he wore when possessed. (unless it's just an image for the cover and has nothing to do with how things go in the comic)
    2 - Blonde? I think someone thinks it's Kingdom Come Alan Scott.

You're definitely one of my favourite posters so I hope there hasn't been any miscommunication. I think most of us are very aware when fan behaviour can dip into toxicity so while I try my best to not enter that territory, I'm always glad you're around to offset the negativity and keep us on the right track.
    No hostility was taken, nor given. I enjoy your posts, too.

    And I hope I'm right about Last Ride doing right by Hal, because if it doesn't, I'm gonna seem like a giant chumpr 😉

    I'm definitely hoping for a heroic Hal moment in "Last Ride" after being used as a puppet by Darkseid. I don't think Hal comes off poorly in that series - he had to try fending off Darkseid and an army of parademons by himself and definitely made a good effort of it and his "betrayal" wasn't a flaw in his character or anything.

    If anything, Superman comes across poorly, imo. He ditches Hal to stop J'onn from sacrificing himself, (which was his choice) but fails and then holds a grudge against Batman for J'onn's decision?! It's really all his fault, moreso than Hal's.

    Must be the light from the emerald aura surrounding him. Same thing as on the cover of the 3rd issue where the League is sitting around the fire and Hal appeared to have blonde hair, so people initially thought it was Alan.

    I still don't get why Wally is drawn like Barry in this series. Maybe it was originally supposed to be Barry but Zdarsky was told to use Wally and by that point must have been too late to change the costume a bit to differentiate Wally from Barry.

Would Hal even be the right Lantern to use in a book like that given his "nothing can phase me" shtick. Maybe that would be the intriguing part.
    I swear Hal had a story in one of the Halloween specials.

    I think he teamed up with Etrigan.

    There seemed to be a lot of editorial indecision over which costume Wally should wear, so that could also be why the artist just went with the standard modern Flash costume.

    At least the Green Lanterns don't have that issue I guess. You can never confuse which is the featured character. lol

    Absolutely. Aside from the occasional white boots or domino masks, the GL costumes are generally depicted pretty consistently and are distinctive enough that no one is ever confused about who’s who.

    I just started reading Emerald Dawn and can’t help but notice how much Bright was influenced by Gil Kane’s work on the character.
