    I agree. They are emphatically not characterized the same, which was a surprise to me when I first read the stories, given all I'd heard about the silver age. Ralph isn't the same as either of them, either. I feel sometimes like the exaggeration of certain traits later (likely because they are on teams together and want more overt differentiation) sometimes (not always, but sometimes) flattens the characters a bit. You know, when you stop and think about if you were interacting with their out-of-costume selves IRL, would you sort of avoid them? Hal particularly suffers from this in some versions (again, not all). I'm not including the parody-ish Ralph that I despise.
