    John had a great run before DC went tragedy porn overkill.

    You know I always thought it would be Hal first, but maybe John should have a kid. He seems to be the one who has longer term relationships that he's more committed to and if they revive Katma or something I don't see why he couldn't have a kid. I'm just saying if Batman, Superman, Aquaman, and Wally West can have kids why not one of the main lanterns.

Perhaps John was deployed overseas at that time or something.
    A lot of it doesn't make any sense. A lot of inconsistencies. I guess it depends on the writers' knowledge on these characters and the history of the franchise.

    John does have Warhawk as his kid. It's just a shame these writers haven't brought it to main continuity. But it makes sense for someone like him to be one of the first to have a kid. He does come out as one the most responsible characters in this franchise.

    the problem with Warhawk is the main DCU doesn't (and won't) include a romance between Shayera and John so he cannot exist in that form. There's a version where he could have had a kid with Katma Tui who then grew up to be Warhawk but even that is doubtful at this point.

    Like all super-heroes, John needs his own narrative, conflicts, rogues, loves and, yes, potentially, offspring.

    Someone on these boards had the idea of forging a Stewart-Pierce dynasty in the vein of the Allen-Wests. That could be interesting depending on how it's executed.

    As long as John isn't the one starting that dynasty, I'd be cool with it. I really don't want to see John hooking up with one of Jefferson's young daughters.

    However, if someone finally gets around to canonizing the idea that Lynn Stewart is indeed John's sister, the dynasty has already begun. I think that ship may have sailed, though. It never being brought up makes it feel increasingly unlikely.

    Katma revival aside, John having a kid could be interesting. the Lanterns are perfect characters for having a kid. being set in space that gives a lot of options for tweaking the kid (or the Lantern) to be just about any age, which is usually the biggest obstacle to introducing kids in comics. hell, if they play it smart they could even introduce a new take on Warhawk. though, personally, I would rather if they did go the kid route, they do it with a new love interest. after the massive missed opportunity for John and Hawkgirl on Snyder's JL I'm doubtful that pairing would ever link up, I see no distinct appeal to Katma being revived besides further reinforcing the idea that death means nothing (hell, i'm even getting bored with her force ghost cameos at this point tbh), and while Fatality/Yrra could be cool but I don't trust many writers to work on that connection without making it a Xanshi mopefest. regardless, I think John having a kid could be interesting.

    I was the one who suggested it and, thinking about it, I think to make the Pierce-Stewart dynasty two things need to happen: Lynn Stewart-Pierce needs to be confirmed and they need to canonize Tyroc aka Troy Stewart (ideally reboot him to his original reality bending ways) as a relative too.

    this all gives me an idea for a John Stewart family pitch.
