    The way GL's been treated since the movie reminds me of how Aquaman has been perceived for ages by the general public DC doesn't seem to realize or care that there's a problem though.

    Heh, I remember The Joker's infamous line about how "All it takes is one bad day". I've been saying for ages, to the point of annoyance for everyone here I'm sure, that as far as live-action is concerned, there's no hope for Hal Jordan. The Green Lantern franchise itself can bounce back in the movies, but the character of Hal Jordan can't because WB just doesn't care about him. The only reason he is probably slated to appear in the reboot is so they can just tell his fans that he was there before they get rid of him. People can enjoy the funny memes cause that's all Hal will be getting in the future.

    So stand back and peep the light show, GL's got this.

    I really want to see what created him, but I'm concerned that's going to stretch just how dark DC can go. If what we've seen with the Red Death, Murder Machine and the Dawnbreaker is only the tip of the iceberg, and BWL is the worst of the lot, then he'll make nightmares look like sweet dreams.

    Wasn’t that the point of Rebirth??

    There are many differences between taking characters back to the roots and uncreative plagiarism.

    I remember Johns putting Hammond in this situation but I don't remember him following up and providing a conclusion to this story line. I thought he dropped this story line. I could be wrong.

    I guess if you want to say Venditti's used similar ideas to Johns, I can see it, but the way he's handled them and the context seem different and solid enough to where I don't really see a problem.

    Of course it's been so long since I've read Johns' run that I've forgotten about a lot of that .

    Don't include Batman, or Doctor Light for obvious reasons.

    I miss the 80's DC.

    Any recommendations for someone trying to get into Hal Jordan arcs?

    Although there was never a follow-up to that as I recall. We never found out what that scene even was, so I'm glad if Venditti is going to actually explain it. (and we did see Evil Star previewed in that teaser)
