    Default Test pilots are about to become obsolete

    Software will replace them very soon. So what should Hal Jordan do instead?

    Yet further proof that Hal should be wiped from existence and John made the superstar of the GL universe!!! After all, marines will never be obsolete...

    Become a pilot, it's not that big of a change. This doesn't sound like a problem plus it's fiction he can stay a test pilot forever.

    Test pilots are not going away. They may not be in the cockpit, in the air after awhile, but they're not going away.

    It's like people saying journalists are going extinct. No, the job's just changing.

    Pre-Crisis he was fired (right?) and became a toy salesman. Post-Crisis, he was a test pilot essentially because he sucked but people really liked him. It was a sympathy job (and then he got drunk and...).

    Hal was depicted as a test pilot because there was some risk involved in that job and the skill requirement was pretty high. Sure, he can fly commercial airliners or become a crop duster, but that gets away from the original point.

    If there were a reboot, what would he do then? (If you oppose a reboot, then of course you don't need to respond to that.)

    He could still be a test pilot - just make the ships he pilots more in keeping with what would be considered cutting edge in the DCU.

    Well test pilots are just not going to exist any more. It's far cheaper and much less dangerous to just let software do it.

    Maybe he can be a guy who just likes to fly planes.

    He can't be an artist. Kyle is an artist.

    Evel was a showoff, but Hal's being a professional racer is a very good idea.

    He'd probably do it for fun.
