Default Characters Missing In Action

there are so many great characters from the past volumes of Green Lantern that havent made an appearance in a long time.....of course there are many not so great characters cough Goldface cough... but here are a few I would like to see again and I want to see them in Green Lantern not JLA or some other book.

1.LORD MALVOLIO
2.DARKSTARS AND CONTROLLERS
3.POWER RING(if he has been in comics lately forget him)
4.MRWHYDDEN
5.EVIL STAR
6.SONARS
7.DR POLARIS

Evil Star is appearing now, in an ugly new costume.

Power Ring is appearing now also, although one could argue whether it's even the same character.

The other characters are all figments of the minds of writers other than the ones we have, so don't hold your breath. I wonder whether Malvolio ever really existed, or whether he was a mental construct generated by Priest. Yeah, I miss Bito. He was always good for an interesting battle.

I would've never doubted his reality if you hadn't suggested it.

Lord Malvolio is the one I regret the most as far as being gone. That story should have been finished and was set up very well. Now the doppelgangers are a dime a dozen so there's no point in doing it now.

Evil Star is back? Cool. I would like to see him amped up. If you go around calling your self evil,you gotta be a little more vicious. Sonar It looked like Goeff was gonna do something with him then left us hanging. I would like to see the new super scarry Shark come back,or even a amped up Goldface.

I thought about GOLDFACE as well but IMO he would have to be totally changed much like gj did with BLACKHAND.

Goldface appeared in Geoff's first Flash run. He was drastically retooled and less of a threat.

He was reformed long before that, into a politician I believe. Goldface's "power" was being yellow, but after the Corps broke up, Kyle Rayner could've kicked his ass blindfolded. So...good time to hang up the supervillain act.

2.DARKSTARS AND CONTROLLERS
the DSs were mostly wiped out by Grayven, and then *finally* eliminated by Starbreaker in Adam Strange: Planet Heist

How the heck do you go from being a literal supervillain, with a fancy suit and powers and all that, to being a politician? I mean, I know Lex pulled it off somehow but I always thought that was stupid, too. I mean, the DCU must be very different than our universe if somebody with that serious of a criminal record can actually get elected to anything.

No one knew his secret identity. He wore an armored suit, remember?

Yo.

it wouldnt have been a case of vast public knowledge, but he *did* have a criminal record; it wouldnt have been a hard to look that up if a reporter was looking to do an expose or anything on'im...........

If I recall correctly, he had been in prison, got out and became head of a workers' union in Keystone City.

Maybe but most of them that do get elected in our universe should probably be in jail anyway.
