    I expect it to be, "I'm not THAT Green Lantern, I'm the cool one in the movie!"
    Interesting info. Thanks.

    Fair enough, but I guess we disagree about whether a.) its appropriate to drastically change the characteristics (and potential character interactions) of pre-established characters with an existing fan base in order to make a socio-political point and b.) whether the issue is of such importance that anvil-dropping in this manner is uplifting or inspirational rather than annoying.

    Though to be fair, this change should prevent a new incarnation of that creepy Green Lantern-hooking-up-with-a-child-who-made-herself-physically-adult storyline I heard about on Cracked.com, and that's always a good thing.

    Yeesh. What sort of geek are you, if you don't know this?

    Anyway, it's why the hubbub is even more amusing. It would be different if it was the current incarnation of a singular top-billing superhero. Instead, it's just the original version of a hero that's already had 3-4 different people serving in the same position, and not even the one who many people know as "the green lantern," including the one from cinema.
    Oh yeah, I'm the geeky one here. **Scratches head**.

    What happened to Hal Jordon? Did he die? Also, which one was the black green lantern on the justice league? He seemed more bad ass then Hal Jordon.

    You can Google this, probably; but I think Hal Jordan had a bone to pick with the Guardians and ended up destroying Oa / the Guardians. At some point in his sojourn into questionable behavior, he was called Parallax. And then at some point he sacrificed himself to reignite the dying sun, becoming somewhat of a hero again.

    And then, as typically happens, they brought him back for some reason and now I guess he is Green Lantern again. I haven't really read comics regularly since about 1998-2000, so I'm not sure of anything anymore except what I pick up by accident.

    I remember the black guy but don't recall his name nor know what happened to him. I do remember Guy Gardner pretty well, he was in the Justice League when it was pretty fun to read.
