Hal Jordan going crazy, chopping off Boodika's hand, murdering Kilowog, and destroying the entire Green Lantern Corps is also a defining point in Green Lantern's history. Doesn't make it not stupid. The legacy mantle would have worked just fine if Barry and Iris got to ride off into the sunset like his comic series ended and then have Wally take over. But they had to bring him back in Crisis to throw another body on the pile.
Have him do something so big he loses his powers or something. Don't kill him.
