True, but in those instances Mogo was alive and dictating the AI protocols to all the GLs' batteries/rings. His death changes things up quite a bit, I'd imagine. That's likely is the reason for...

That, and trying to make Kyle matter by inserting him further into Hal's general cast.

I think having him bang the daughter of Hal's main villain is as close as DC's gonna come, though.
