Hal.

Hal has noting unique to him, i hear his fans say "he's lie han solo as a super hero"

Except he really hisn't. a few one liners dose not a han solo make
>>
>>78908195

He'd be less boring if they focused on his being OPERATOR AS FUCK like in that image.

Hal should be OG Lantern, Guy should be Comedy Lantern, Kyle should be Artist's Wet Dream Lantern and John should be Operator Lantern.
Kyle shoul
>>
I don't think any of them are boring to be honest

Feels like John gets stuck with dull characterization a lot but it doesn't make him bad
>>
>>78908195
Kyle Rayner hasn't been interesting since Rebirth.
Guy Gardner was terrible as Warrior
Hal was interesting as Spectre and under Johns. Otherwise, he's awful.

Is John boring, or is he just the only lantern to still never really get the spotlight? Mosaic was great!
>>
>>78908253
A marine architect. That's double boring.
>>
>>78908195
he is supposed to be kind of unimaginative, yeah. that's what makes him interesting. all these powers that rightfully belong with a creative like kyle rayner, found in the hands of a no-nonsense marine. He doesn't make big springy hands, he makes a brick that smashes you. It's boring, but it's variation that isn't stale.
>>
>>78908231
You can think a character's dull without it being racist.

John had a really cool couple of stories and then it feels like no one knew what to do with the guy, sadly.

He was suppose to be a black version of guy gardner. You know being a jerk and stubborn at times except he make black jokes and become smarter than guy gardner.

Hal has an origin story, a motivation, a supporting cast, and villains who give a shit.

Does anyone know who John Stewart even is as a person? "He's an architect", "he's a Marine sniper", what the fuck does that tell me about why this motherfucker is one of the five most willful men on Earth or who and what he cares about?

he's still the self insert lantern, only now it's less the "everyman" sense and more the "donut steel special snowflake" sense
>>
>>78908921

That's what happens when you make a character specifically for people to self-insert on.

The self-inserters grow up and start jacking the character up to mary sue OC faggot levels.

It happened to Kyle Rayner, it happened to Peter Parker and it'll probably happen to Kamala Khan.

Your implication that OP has a problem with race and not an individual implies that you think there's nothing wrong with John Stewart.

Isn't that Hal? He is the "leader" of the Green Lanterns. He is usually always right. He is said to be the greatest Green Lantern. He is the one that overwrited/overpower the restriction placed on a Green Lantern power ring and killed an Oan with it.

John Stewart = Patience.
Guy Gardner = stubborn
Hal Jordan = Focusing
Kyle Rayner = being creative

John never had a thing. Except Mosaic, but that wasn't a story about HIM per say, so much as a story about a bunch of stuff happening to or around him.

And what is Jessica and Simon's?
>>
>>78908195

He has the sense to apparate a gun so he's alright in my book.
>>
>>78909178
What does "focusing" mean?

Hal's basically the same character as Guy in that his version of being willful is "do what I want on a whim, anyone who gives me orders can fuck off", the only difference is that Hal's chill and suave while Guy has the angry "always second best" chip on his shoulder and no social graces.
>>

sure he did, he used to have a temper and be the "rookie" lantern but those roles passed onto Guy and Kyle and then the DCAU zapped most of his personality and now the only things anybody can think of regarding him are Xanshi, buildings, and OORAH
>>
>>78909063

That's not an informed trait though like a fanfiction character would have upon introduction, it's because he's been around for fifty years realtime so he has the most feats and accomplishments in sheer numbers.

Remember that time when John stewert was destiny to cuckold the hawk-guy?

That is the most worst message in the show.
>>
>>78909354
Everyone's a rookie in their origin story, that's not a character trait. I'll give you "angry" though, his original motivation was basically "the man is holdin' me down and I'm sassy about it", which IS a lot more than he's had in every story post-O'Neil/Adams
>>

Fuck Hawkrapist.

John was there first and Hawkman was a creepy loser and, even worse, was voiced by James Remar.

It's not like it's the first time. John cucked Hal when he wanted to bang a red headed cutie.

Hawkgirl/Jihn stewart is a horrible pairing and you're all trash for liking it.

He was a creepy loser that was right about fucking destiny and shit.

Even if hawk-man came first, He going to get cuck anyway because of "destiny" bullshit.

Requesting the panel(s) towards the end of Rebirth were it shows how each GL's constructs are made.

It totally did predict the damn future. Only thing change about it, They didn't die together.

Why are you defending this episode?
>>
>>78909825
Like an angry black guy.
>>
>>78909983
You're thinking of Comics Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

In the show, they only had one past life and weren't destined to get back together and be murdered by the same guy over and over.
>>
>>78909996
Fair enough.

I'm curious though, because I can sort of answer this question for Hal, Guy, and Kyle, but I can't answer it for John: what about him makes him more willful or "able to overcome great fear" than an ordinary person? There are tons of angry black guys in the world, why's he special? How did he get to be that way?

Or is he, as I suspect, the only GL who doesn't have a proper origin beyond "Guardians told Hal to pick another backup guy at random"?
>>
John's role, and the entire point of his character to begin with, is "the black guy".

It's also the reason he was used in that cartoon.

The Guardians picked him out themselves but I'm not sure they ever elaborated on why

Maybe they added another reason in the mid 80s when John got a bigger part in the book but I haven't read that stuff yet

I also don't know if John ever really got a proper origin story update, I know he had one in the recent Secret Origins book but that didn't clarify it much either, it just removed him being Hal's backup
>>
>>78910554
>I know he had one in the recent Secret Origins book but that didn't clarify it much either, it just removed him being Hal's backup

I think it established his mother's name for the first time and that she was a politician who got assassinated or something? I can't really remember.

Why was he the main GL in JLU anyway? Hal and Kyle possess far more impressive resumes and histories with the League. Was there something going on in the comics at that time that I'm unaware of?

Still the best Green Lantern.

>>78908195
At least he's not a gigantic Mary Sue editorial baby like Kyle.

>>
>>78910887
>Was there something going on in the comics at that time that I'm unaware of?
When STAS started Hal was Parallax/dead so they used Kyle for synergy I guess? Kyle got a lot of exposure in the mid 90s

For JL/JLU Hal was still dead/The Spectre so he was off the table but they went with John over Kyle for diversity
>>
>>78910617
So he was picked to get a ring not because he's got a super amount of willpower like the others, but because they predicted he'd develop Guardian powers?

Okay...but WHY does he develop Guardian powers?
>>
>>78910975
>When STAS started Hal was Parallax/dead

That's not how they did it. In the DCAU, Hal remained a powerless airforce pilot and Kyle got the Abin Sur origin.
>>
>>78910941
i rather take the mary-sue tbqh,at least he was fun at one point.but just like they are doing with kamala,a fan favorite gets everything.
>>
>>78911026
I meant he was Parallax/dead in the comics at the time

Did Hal cameo in STAS at all? I remember Kyle made a plane construct that said Col. Jordan on it
>>
>>78910887
They wanted Phil Lamarr to voice somebody.
>>
>>78908195
Pre-Tom King Kyle Rayner.
>>
>>78911054
No, what happened was Sinestro and Kyle fought across an airfield and one of the planes there said Jordan.

Hal's only appearance in the DCAU is as a Lantern from an alternate timeline in one episode of JLU.
>>
>>78908195
He's the Green Lantern who's best at just passing by
>>
>>78911078
you might as well amend that to pre- and post-Tom King
>>
>>78911095
huh, could have sworn that was a construct. Guess it's been a while since I've seen STAS

didn't Kyle have short brown hair in that episode though? that threw me off too
>>
>>78910980
He's a living man half in death.
>>
>>78911196
Yeah, the thing about Bruce Timm is his approach to legacy characters was always to combine them.

Tim Drake had Jason Todd's origin, Kyle looked like Hal and got his ring from Abin, Wally was a CSI with no Barry.
>>
>>78910975

When they were introducing the league in Superman they decided to use Kyle and Wally because at the time they were the ones in the costumes and they wanted to promote the new blood in this eventual Justice League cartoon.

However when they started assembling the final team years later they went for John because they realized they didn't have a black character and he was basically a blankslate they could do whatever they wanted with.
>>
>>78911198
The fuck does that mean?
>>
>>78911198
>>
>>78911274

Actually it was hinted that Wally did have a Barry. The Kid Flash costume shows up in the museum.
>>
>>78911307
Why didn't they use Kyle and then have Black Lightning or Mr Terrific as the token black?
>>
>>78911420
Mr. Terrific shows up later on but he isn't a permanent fixture like GL would be
>>
>>78911359
>Kindle
>>
>>78911362
The show's occasional hints at Wally's backstory tended towards being weird and a little contradictory. What we actually SAW suggest Wally was the grown man working in the lab getting struck by lightning, but then they'd sneak easter eggs in like that costume, or Wally's boss being a guy who looks like Barry, I think Wally mentioned his uncle offhandedly once, and then JLU and TT shared VAs for Flash/Kid Flash and Speedy.
>>
>>78911308
He has gone beyond the green and found the red.
>>
>>78911420
If you were introducing the Justice League for the first time, would you really make Black Lightning or Mr. Terrific one of the "Big 7" founders?
>>
>>78909499
>>78910858
Finally the true purpose of this thread comes out.
>>
>>78911488
Would you make Cyborg one of the seven founders?
>>
>>78911483
The fuck does THAT mean?
>>
>>78911515
Something something the Red was Sinestro and him awakening his Guardian powers. I can't remember it's been a while since I've read Mosaic.
>>
>>78911506
Well no...but he's at least a better choice than those two, his name and character concept are simple and marketable and his powerset is versatile.
>>
>>78911506
As opposed to Black Tony Wayne and a character most people think is just a living meme? Yes.
>>
>>78911714
>Black Tony Wayne
?
>>
>>78911506
Why is it so important to have a black founder? Where is the asian founder, or the hispanic one? The whole idea of protecting and policing the world is a pretty white one to begin with.
>>
>>78911766
A lot of what Mister Terrific is capable of can also be found in Batman and Iron Man. Not the easiest thing to market, especially when you already have Batman on the team as the token unpowered gadget user.
>>
>>78911506
I would have used Apache Chief
>>
>>78911827
>Where is the asian founder, or the hispanic one?
Yeah that' is a good point. And where is the Pacific Islander one? Is there even a Pacific Islander hero in DC?

>>78911951
Yes!
>>
>>78912023
Pacific Islanders don't exist. They're a race manufactured by the sports industry as an alternative to blacks.

Alright but what if we gave him some attitude. Like, he doesn't take orders without making snaps.
>>
>>78909061
Because Johns is shit
>>
>>78911502
The only way John Stewart the comic character in the early 2000s and John Stewart the cartoon character in the early 2000s resembled each other is that they were black guys with Lantern rings
DCAU John was basically just Mcduffie's original character do not steal. It's a fact. Whether it's good or bad is up to interpretation
>>
>>78909061
>why did Johns pulled a reverse Gohan on us
What do you mean? Gohan ended up as a lame jobber after the Cell arc despite being hyped up as Goku's successor. I'd say Kyle is a pretty standard Gohan type character.
>>

>>78914983
He was also a sniper....

He had a good long run, for what it's worth. It's a lot more than plenty of other characters or franchises get who have been stuck in a rut since like the 80's or so.
>>
>>78915164
He appeared in a lot of stuff during that time too. His solo, YJ, Green Arrow, Batgirl, other Batbooks, etc, so thankfully there's a lot of good Tim stuff.

Unfortunately has the years drag on, the numbers of good Tim and bad Tim are getting closer and closer, if bad Tim hasn't already been in more already.

He was, but then Simon Baz came out. Simon Baz is literally the exact same shit as John Stewart, except the racism he's dealing with is justified, since he's a terrorist van thief with a ski mask and Qran writings on his arm carrying a gun. Also he's less interesting in general.

JOhn was actually sweet back in Mosaic, but making him a soldier is pretty much THE worst thing you could have done to him. He's much more interesting as the eloquent architect. 'Cause Guy's dumb, Hal's dumb, and Kyle isn't particularly educated, so make John a counterpoint to that. Bring back him quoting old novels and playing jazz on his piano and shit. It's a lot more interesting than Serious Marine #2325

The problem with John is that his personality started out as, basically, jive-talking black stereotype. Kinda like Luke Cage, except he even had an afro. But as fun as it is, we can't really have that after the 70s so they took it out, and never really filled the void with anything else.

I would never try to claim that Hal isn't the main GL unless it's a JSA book and then it's Alan Scott.

Hal's not doesn't draw off focus or obstinance, which is Guy's source of willpower, but just by being completely fearless.

He isn't capable of considering the repercussions so naturally his own desire is the only voice in his head that matters, he's unburdened by doubt.

That's also why he's generally kind of a shit head and prone to impulsiveness.

some of the best stories Iron Man had were commie busting. I'd kill for a book where he teams up with his old Soviet Armor foes for the good of the world but that'd require him to get someone who actually understands politics, scifi or something like that.

>>78910941
>Mary Sue editorial baby like Kyle.

Kyle was never a mary sue. One of the biggest character arcs with Kyle was the fact that he always felt inadequate and too inexperienced due to always being compared to Hal who was heralded as the greatest lantern ever, you know, before going evil. Plus Kyle seemingly being chosen to be the last GL at random by Ganthet was another thing he felt shitty for, because he thought it meant he wasn't worthy of the ring.

John's problem is that his gimmick is inherently that he's the black green lantern. Everything else is just stuff they tried to stick into him over the years, and none of it has been that iconic beyond failing to save a planet from exploding, which is great as a moment of failure from which he learns to be better, but not something you can really use to promote as a definite character trait. They've tried to push the marine angle but it's pretty boring when it's his sole driving characteristic.
>>
>>78918700
Ditto. I was happy to see them appear in Thunderbolts.
And, unless I am mistaken, Infinity: The Heist had some of Iron Man's old villains, right?
>>
>>78918702
I don't think you know what a mary sue is outside of fanfiction. Kyle was a typical shonen manga protagonist, odds were always against him and he was shown to not be good enough, but by the end of it he did it his way and his way was superior. His entire run reads like a shonen manga too where everyone else gets shat on so he can look the bestest.
>>
>>78915819
>>78917658
>>78914983
I thought he was both not combined. Like he was a marine and an architect but just at different points in time.
>>
>>78918738
>His entire run reads like a shonen manga too where everyone else gets shat on so he can look the bestest.

God forbid for the title hero to have his moment to shine. And his run never shits on anyone. IF anything, the entire Kyle run makes is painfully obvious how much he respects and looks up to Hal and how much he appreciates and seeks guidance from the people who came before him, like John Stewart. It's incredibly how much the books genuflects while trying to appease the butthurt Hal fans.
>>
>>78918788
Yeah. He was sniper marine and architect after that.
>>
>>78918789
You're right; but recently Kyle has been, maybe not a Mary Sue, but certainly something near that level. It started with New Guardians, and then when Justin Jordan took over it became really awful. Though it looks like Tom King is fixing that.
>>
>>78918828

Personally I like Messiah Kyle, but I agree that current Kyle is the victim of being a character people like but nobody really knowing what to do with him, especially long term.

To be fair Batman has been successful at the box office prior to the disaster that was Batman & Robin compared to Green Lantern who only had the one movie who bombed.

With that said, I'm still Hal all the way for the next attempt at Green Lantern on the big screen although most likely they will go for a Green Lantern Corps film with Hal and John which I'm totally still down for.

>>78919649
Well, I was more referring to the fact they keep sticking Jason with fucking Scott Lobdell who can't into writing anymore.

You're entitled to that, I just didn't find anything particularly compelling about his powers or origin, and he never had any defining stories like Nero and Force. (I did like his team-up with Killer Frost though, that could have been a good dynamic.)
>>
>>78920646
I like him because he's what Kyle would be if he didn't have someone like Alex to push him in the right direction and because things involving the Controllers gets my dick hard. All of Kyle's villains are just facets of himself except Force maybe.

>That goes right along with everything I've seen and heard. I might skip this one. I'm not interested in seeing John get sidelines for Guy Gardner, nor be a buddy with Guy Gardner. I think it's pretty clear that John is not THE star of this book, but rather it's a book that he's in. I'm kinda' thinking (at least from the perspective of a John Stewart fan) it may be a good idea to get John out of the Corps title, because it's too easy for some writer to bury him under a bazillion characters or focus on someone else. When you read Superman, you know who it is about, and that typically doesn't change. With John Stewart's books, we never really know anymore going into them, and it's always liable to change on us.

Sort of, but then none of the GL's really had a distinctive style before Rebirth, apart from "Kyle's an artist so all his stuff is super creative." (Also his weebshit, I guess.)

>>78921107
He also has an interesting backstory: He thought his brother had been stolen by one of the dragon creatures that live on his planet, so he went and killed it with his hammer, but realized he was wrong, and adopted its three children. THen he found his brother and they became a duo nomad team, because their nomadic tribe had moved on without them, until his brother died and he got the ring. So yeah, he also has a sweet-ass hammer.
