I doubt there is really that much of an age difference anymore. Johns' has confirmed that Hal is about 30. I wouldn't be surprised if Carol,Guy and John are in that region too. I think Kyle is early-mid 20s. So really really much of an age difference. I wouldn't classify Carol as a pedo or cradle robber [like Hal with Arisia before she was retconned to be over 200 years old] if some hack at DC thinks putting Carol and Kyle together is a good idea.

I don't like the idea of Kyle and Carol together. And I don't think they will be. Carol will have her own motives for keeping the Star Sapphire ring on. Hal and Sinestro may be dead when we finish reading the Annual. Or in deep hiding. Or captured and being held on Oa. Even so, Carol wants Hal back. This battle may be necessary for her to get him back. (She may even be pregnant with Hal's child by the time #13 comes out, who knows?) With what's happening in the "merger" of Fatality and Bleez, she's filling the gap in the line in the New Guardians. That's the primary story.

If one accepts that ANY of the pre-New 52 continuity is still valid (a dubious premise, at best), Kyle and Carol know each other from Hal's funeral ("I'm sorry for your loss...") and from a few other chance encounters, doppleganger switches, and run-ins. Chemistry just wasn't there. Why would it be now?

The way things are going in the DC Universe, maybe Kyle should fall for Larfleeze.

Are you suggesting that Kyle is gay?

maybe thats how Arthur regarded *his* relationship w/her, but Tempest never did as such. and besides, the guy was just looking for an excuse to hook back up w/Mera anyways.........

I'd like to see this interview. I find love triangles to be a waste of time. Relationship drama is not the reason I read GL. I also think Kyle respects Hal too much to do something like that. If you really want Kyle to hook up with someone he still has Bleez and Fatality. And if you still want something even less important get Larfleeze to bring out one of his female clones for Kyle.

Nononononoo.....Noooo....Nuh uh. Kyle and Carol aren't compatible... Different interests, different personalities, plus if Kyle becomes friends with Hal again, he'd never hook up with the ex of a buddy. That's just not in him.

Plus i don't want it to happen. Ever since the reboot happened i feel like the writers are pushing relationships and sex so hard to the point that plot takes a back seat. I'm all for sex and romance in a book, but only if the couple makes sense and happens because the couple have mutual interests and stuff. If Kyle hooked up with Carol it'd only be sex and romance for the sake of drama and fanservice.

Same with superman and wonder woman then. They'll probably have batman date Lois Lane, saint walker date bleez, and catwoman date that new Arabic green lantern.

Deadpool is the best Green Lantern, alongside Booster Gold.

before the reboot he was one of my favorite characters form what I read the reboot butchered his character. Dan Jurgens and Geoff Johns did a fantastic job with the whole Booster trying to save Barbara Gordon for being paralyzed an him gaining batman respect. there was great character development that just got swept away with the reboot.

I think we are all forgetting one very important detail as to why Kyle and Carol won't be doing the nasty. Geoff Johns will not allow it.

Oh, he allowed it. LOL

There I said it.
Called it before the New52 even got started.

Dug this thread up and was taken back by everyone's opinions of it back then LOL. Is it a success now? I saw Iggy somewhere praising New Guardians and I could've swore he hated Kyle...

I still don't like the idea of Kyle basically being an Indigo Lantern in White instead of creating white constructs like the WL's during Brightest Day. If Kyle's gonna be banging Carol he should wear green again before it's all over. Then she can accidentally call him Hal, drama ensues, end of relationship and Hal can decide once and for all if Carol is old goods. She can become evil again and attack them both... HEY! TEAM-UP!

Are you calling out Naysay? Like people did with Alec Baldwin's "I will leave the country if Bush is elected" statement?

It's certainly debatable whether it's "popular." The book has okay, but not good sales. There are fans of the relationship here, but a lot of ... umm... naysaying too.

This relationship still makes zero sense. Even looking back at The New Guardians earlier run, Kyle admitted that Carol was using him in order to get to Hal. That connection to Kyle was out of place and made zero sense. It was bad writing.

Plus New Guardians has dropped the most out of the GL books and is now being outsold by Red Lanterns.

It can't be a coincidence. Most readers are saying "no" to this relationship, as they should.

A true femme fatale. I think I like the sounds of that.

The whole relationship seemed forced to me. I mean in GL 20, Hal and Carol are in love after she spent so many issues trying to find him. Then boom next issue the new writer breaks them up with no build up, just to shake up the status quo.

Not exactly, that was just one of the lines that caught my eye looking back at the thread. And all the "Geoff will NEVER let it happen..." statements. I'm still in shock it actually happened in the comics myself and I'm not surprised if the reaction was less than stellar.
