Didn't Carol fall out of love with Hal because she finally realized he's a giant, raging douchebag a while ago?

Doesn't that make sense, though? The white light was always referred to as the white light of life, and it resurrected a bunch of people in Brightest Day. That seems like it's just putting two existing concepts together in a way that makes really obvious sense...

Whoa there. He's not a bag of feminine product, she was just upset b/c he had to keep rushing off into space every other Thursday. Doesn't make for the best relationship.

It's not nonsensical, it's just to much importance placed on 1 guy. If Kyle had some other lanterns w/ him, it'd be different. Can Sodam Yat get Ion back and have the spotlight dammit?

I wouldn't mind that. But Kyle's kind of built for being the most individually significant Lantern. Being the White Lantern now recalls those days when he was the last surviving Green Lantern--unique in the universe, with a lot of pressure on him because only he could do certain things. That's a hallmark of the character. Might as well have a Hal who doesn't randomly punch people for the slimmest of reasons.

Gotta admit, I'm REALLY digging the Godhead story so far. Finally Kyle is relevant again. I've been on the verge of giving up NG since Lights Out ended, it got kinda dumb after that. It's good again now though with this revelation about Kyle. Can't wait until everyone finds out he's still breathing. Has anybody else been reading Red Lanterns? The Red Daughter of Krytpon was pretty good and I love Guy's new look and being the leader of the Reds, he's freakin bad ass.

^Red Lanterns and Sinestro are my fav GL-books.

You know the franchise is in a bad place when we're all surprised to be enjoying the current event haha.

Red Lanterns has been my favorite GL family book for months now. With GLC in second place.

So, what does everyone think of Guy no longer being a Red Lantern, and possibly having a future as a Blue Lantern?

I'm glad to pick up on GL even if my knowledge of Geoff John's run is limited. Thankfully, having read GL: Rebirth prior to jumping in really helped. Vol. 1-3 were pretty great, and I'm looking to read Sinestro next.

Sorry to dig up and old and relatively non-interesting subject but does Carol really have anything in common with Kyle?

Hey guys, question for an expert :

Who knows what Harvid looked like in his very first appearance in GL"161 back in the 80es. I don't own the comics so I'm clueless.
I can't find if he was black hair no bear or white hair/white beard. Who could/would know about something so specifics.
Oh yeah, I did check the internet thingy.

I’ve been impressed by the Zod storyline in HL &GLC so far. They’ve done a good job with it and I generally like it when writers have heroes fight other heroes’ villains. Plus Hal is a bada$$ in that story for strolling in and talking smack with Zod and his family at their dinner table. Kyle on the other hand...

What's wrong with Kyle? I figured he'd be treated like garbage in a Hal-centric series, but I haven't read it. Curious about the specifics.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
He got his lunch handed to him by Zod and spent an entire issue laying in the floor basically bleeding out while Hal was a boss with Zod. Then Hal gave him his ring to send him back to the corps.

Yeah, I'm glad I'm not reading that series.

Corp, come on, give the Hal-Hate a break. I mean you're wrong about the Hal-centric serie. I don't get why it's named that way by the way, because John Stewart really takes the spotlight. In fact, I feel John, Guy and Hal have their spotlight. Kyle less.
They made him a GL again and I think it was wrong. I think a serie with Kyle would work. But hey, he was centric with the Soranik Natu's child arc recently. It was cool. Same, the Kyle's training of Simon Baz was cool.

But I admit that they (the writers/heads/wheatever) are pushing too much about Kyle being the slow one. What disturbs me is, since Kyle is the sensitive he can't be a badass. Like : he's an artist, so he's sensitiv, so he does not fight, so he needs the help of the real men. Like being an artist/sensitive makes you slow or weak. This pisses me off a bit.

Isn't it weird or a coincidence that the new GL known as Fantas-M has actually the same face as the Dark Stars ?! It's like he/she's already has the face of the DarkStars. Could be the new partner in crime of Tomar Tu ?
