I'll be disappointed if they don't
Maybe just hobo Hal with the gauntlet
Oh wow I never even made that connection
I think this was also soon after some Eclipso fuckery where pretty much every major cape got possessed including Hal & Kara
Can't really blame the guy for thinking it was his lil Harold
Yeah they didn't flat out say Convergence Parallax was possessed but the entire mini was people telling him Parallax wasn't his fault and he wasn't acting like himself as Parallax and then his entire demeanor changed once his powers came back
Don't start there, mate. If you want an origin story, go for Secret Origins by Johns. Or just start with Rebirth and proceed with Johns' GL run. Then you can go back and read older stuff, there are good things there, but Emerald Dawn is not a good starting point anymore.
At least he's not dead (yet?) ;_;
Emerald Dawn is Hal's old origin and you don't really want to start there unless you're planning on reading Emerald Twilight and stuff like that
Rebirth, No Fear, or Secret Origin are better modern starting points
Emerald Dawn is still a pretty good starting place. The only really dated thing with it is the drunk driving message. Other than that it sets up Hal pretty well and tread up old characters and turning them into bastardizations of themselves.
I'm still really confused why Johns made Black Hand become a necrophiliac murderer when his entire shtick was shitty puns.
While I don't necessarily disagree that Emerald Dawn I and II are worth reading, they are out of date and out of continuity for the last decade or so of GL stories. That makes them a fairly odd starting point to pick, in my opinion.
Well, the last time Hand had gotten any action was, what, Waid's BatB? He was so gone that it kind of worked, and I really like Johns' and Venditti's portrayals', so it ain't that bad. Although he might as well have made a "Black Hand II", really.
Vendittis I think is better than Johns. Vendittis just seems like his old joking self but with the death motif while Johns' had him licking skulls and other shit like that. It was just jarring. I'm really sad that Sonar doesn't have his magnificent cape though.
I would say there is quite a big difference between the two origin stories. Sure, the core of "Abin Sur crash lands on Earth, passes the ring to Hal during his dying moments" is the same, but pretty much everything around that, all the fleshing out, is different. Hal's relationship with his brothers, Hal's relationship with Carol, what Hal has been doing with his life... all of that is different.
