Ever been in a movie theater occupied mainly by black folk ? That's noisy :groucho:

Going waaay back one of my favorite JLA stories is a Christmas tale that introduced John, called "The Man Who Murdered Santa Claus!"

Pre-DiDio Morrison did a decent job with Steel in the Morrison League.
But I agree that DiDio-era Morrison can't be trusted.

As for John Stewart, as Zechs more-or-less said, John suffers from lack of proper usage because of Geoff's raging man-love for Hal Jordan. :roll: This wasted potential of a great character is yet another reason why Johns and his buddies have GOT to go.

You know, as an older fan who read plenty of Green Lantern stories back in the day, I've always been amused about one thing about Hal Jordan:

He was never really all that well-written, or that great of a character, on his own. Again, before people jump down my throat: ON HIS OWN. I'm well aware, of course, of Denny O'Neil's great work on the book, but that was Green Lantern/Green Arrow, where Oliver Queen was equally necessary in that book to make it work.

Hal Jordan is not...look. Nostalgia's great. But very, very, very few characters from the era in which Hal Jordan was created had great stories written about them for any number of years The same woes that plagued Barry Allen and others applied to Hal Jordan -- it's not the concept is horrible, because it isn't. But so many stories were told about the character in a simpler style, it is difficult to truly accept the character as this vibrant, special character when he used to struggle with Goldface and had to fear French's Mustard.

Killing off John Stewart because you're pissed off that Hal Jordan isn't the Green Lantern many people think of first -- well, FFS, DC! It's the GREEN LANTERN CORPS! There are 7,200 of these fuckers! Tell good stories with Jordan for an extended period of time and people will embrace him, too! You don't have to turf John Stewart because you put out a movie that sucked ass and you're still sore about it!

I do hope they don't kill John off as apart from Hal, he's the only GL I really like.

It's not like he won't be back in a few issues. It's like people just started reading comics or something.

I'm sure IvCNuB4 knows how it feels to have a little Chinese in you.
