    It is kind of a spooky concept from an Orwellian perspective.....even if it makes sense in the context of Hal being a space cop, but imagine.....

    If the rings surveillance technology could be duplicated and used by employers or governments. People having to wear these rings at work, so that Jeff Bezos can make sure everyone is continually working and not talking about forming a union.

    This is all conjecture of course, but I wonder how Hal (or other earth GL's) feel about the growth of security cameras all over street corners? They would probably like it, Ollie always had a better grasp of the political dangers of authoritarianism.

    That's definitely the point Johns is having Ollie make, which is a good one, but Hal is also right in that any honest cop that's not doing anything wrong shouldn't be worried about the authorities supervising him 24/7 while he's wearing such a powerful weapon.

    This is why I'd point to that scene as being one of the few Hal/Ollie political debates that treats both characters with respect.

    It's all good, I'm just having a bit of fun stirring the pot, though I did feel Hal was endorsing Big Brother when I read the issue 20 years ago.

    But has you stated, cops should have what they're doing supervised, I completely agree with that. I understand Hal's perspective now, cheers.

    It's an original design for the figure. Aside from the white boots I actually think it looks good.
