Well, the Alan Scott version was meant to draw parallels with the Aladdin story, so I'm not exactly baffled by this decision. Hell, the Aladdin parallels even carry over to the Corps version, that's where the Ring and Lantern come from in the first place.

FAKE news. Morrison is literally reciting what power rings have always done since the 1960s, not suggesting there is new powers. If you read 3 or 4 comics before the Geoff Johns age you would understand.

Morrison making Green Lantern his thing in 2018 is literally the best thing to happen to Green Lantern since 1994.

I never knew of Aladdin parallels of course the Scott Weinger/Robin Williams Disney version is what dominates my knowledge and may deter one source's inspiration of another since I am not nearly as familar outside of the 1992 film which is 51 years after Alan Scott's debut.


I am definitely open to what Grant has planned. Looking forward to it.

Andrew, you hate Geoff Johns as much as I hate Dan Didio or Zarius hates Dan Slott!

Maybe he hates Geoff Johns, but we can't deny the impact of Geoff Johns on the GL universe in term of popularity. It brought many new readers (myself included) that will continue to follow the GL universe and will learn about past titles and events.

We had 4 GL titles during New 52 (+ Sinestro & Larfleeze). For Rebirth we had 2 titles and now we will probably have only one. I didn't read much Grant Morisson's stuff but I hope I will like him on GL.

I took my distance from the GL universe after buying volume 6 (godhead issues) because I was frustrated to again only a part of an event. I bought volumes 7 & 8 a few days ago so I finally finished New 52.

Most of my Hal Jordan reading has been either GL: Rebirth and beyond or the issues he partook throughout thr entireity of the JL of A satelitte era (which I own like the Hal lead titles Rebirth and beyond). However, I have read a few issues here and there like the first several stories featuring Hal, key search for America issues with Green Arrow, and the stuff with the revived title reestablishing Hal at Ferris Air and with Carol. For a long time I wondered where Evergreen City and the difting came about. I found my answer in an article today.

I'm sorry. And "the satellite era of JL"? They had a satellite station since the 60s... nothing new.

Sorry about what? I enjoy both runs for the most part. I own every issue of my favorite era of the Justice League, the satelilitte era. The satellitte era is 1970 to 1984. You are thinking about the moonbase in addition to that from the Magificent Seven era (1997-2006) as well as other bases. I am talking about the run that is labeled the satellitte era.
