I've always found John Stewart to be boring as fuck.

Maybe it's because I never read Mosaic, but he's boring. I may hate Hal Jordan for being an asshole, but he's at least not boring.

I don't think you should be forced to keep a character alive just because of their race.

And besides, it's comics, he'd come back eventually, heck, Hal Jordan is supposed to be dead right now.

Sadly as a long time Punisher fan I've yet to come across a story like this.

Even if you include the Ryan Reynolds movie, isn't John the most prominent GL in the public's eye? I know a lot of people were confused why he was white on the big screen. Yes he's a fairly boring and entirely unnecessary character but so are Kyle and Hal. If you're going to kill one, take one of the boring winterfolk.

The very concept of the Punisher (Mack Bolan ripoff slash serial killer) kinda precludes EVER reading a "meaningful story without killing anybody"...

the justice league cartoon made john stewart 500 times more popular than hal jordan ever was. and kyle rayner ruled the 90's while jordan was a hardened villain around then.

I was wondering that too. Justice League and Justice League Unlimited did run from 2001 to 2006 but almost everything since has featured Hal Jordan including the live action Green Lantern movie, the DC Animated movies, and Green Lantern: The Animated Series. I would say that at this point, Hal Jordan is just as prominent in the public's eye as John Stewart.

Based on his wiki, poor John Stewart got the short end of the GL mythos after Rebirth. Other than the world destroying incident that they mention at least once during every arc, everything else has been quietly forgotten. With the new timeline he's even more out of place.

Maybe he'll get new powers or something. Even Mogo came back right?

They really don't have nowhere to go!
Ask 'em where they're going...

But we won't let nothing hold us back!
We're gonna put ourselves together!
Gonna polish up our act, well! :-D
