    Regardless of Johns's take on Hal or John, I have concerns that he can really write a good movie. It's a lot different than writing for comics. I hope that they have a real movie vet there who can steer Johns into shaping his ideas into a film that makes sense and excites an audience, whether it be a producer or the director.
    I would prefer that dynamic. Perhaps the Guardians hope that a more serious, by-the-book GL from Earth might be needed to help tone down the maverick GL.

    Also being a vet in the US Armed Forces, Hal might be the one to keep John from being a total tight-arse.

    From a character building standpoint, Geoff has a lot to play with.

    Just, y'know, minus one of them being corrupt (I'd hope) .
    We can get some subtle references to Sinestro, if the writing is on point.

    I always felt the early relationship between Hal & Sinestro & eventual falling out was a cosmic version of the film Training Day.

    The creators of the animated "First Flight" based their film it, so you're definitely not alone.

    I love first flight. One of my favorite super hero movies period.

    Sinestro was awesome in there.

    One thing's for sure, with Geoff on board, they won't turn Hal into Parallax.

    Very nice. I never read this. I kind of halted read when the color wars started and I could no longer keep up with all the manefest changes with the Guardians. It just felt the writing got out of hand.

    Another thumbs up for First Flight .

    I feel Christopher Meloni was pretty underrated as Hal.

    Yeah, there's no way they're turning Hal into a villain here.

    Unless a character was conceived that way from the start, I don't want any superhero to be turned into a villain. Never again!

    DAMN!!! That was intense. Len Wein is really upping the stakes here.

    Great stuff.

    I agree! I thought he was great pulling off Hal's swagger without undermining his heroism. And unlike with other famous faces like Boreanaz or Fillion, I see Hal rather than the actor. I think it has something to do with Meloni understanding changing his delivery for voice acting more than those other two.
