What do you mean... Green Lantern Corps has been the better book of the 3 Lantern titles for years, IMHO.

I absolutely agree. Better writing, less shameless retconing and all around it's the better of the two evils.

Mal! How are you? You need to pop in more often!

Want spoilers?

Sinestro has given Hal a ring behind the Guardians' backs. And because Sinestro spawned it from his own ring, he can turn it on and off whenever he wants. As well as increase and decrease it's power so Hal is not a threat to him.

Hal was without a ring for...one whole issue.

I'm wondering if Sinestro still has the same ability to take over other Yellow Rings, like he did with Mongul. It would sure help, if he is going to be taking on his entire Corps, even with Hal's help.

Frankly, if I'm Hal, though, I'm not exactly going to be gung ho to fly to Sinestro's home planet and fight Sinestro's Corps using a ring that Sinestro can turn off at will. I think that SHOULD require quite a bit more TRUST than Sinestro has earned. I know Hal's supposed to be impulsive, and most likely missing the ring, but if he is so addicted to the ring that he is willing to take one controlled by Sinestro, and dumb enough to follow Sinestro into the clutches of his Corps armed only with such a weapon, then he is not the Hal I have come to know.

Hal has been shown in the past to be fully capable of turning his back on the ring, at least temporarily, if he doesn't like the conditions necessitated by keeping it, and THIS is a greater example of that sort of situation than ANY I have ever seen before.

And while it is believable that Hal would feel compelled to render aid to the people of Korugar against the Sinestro Corps, for him to be willing to do so on Sinestro's say so, with a ring that Sinestro controls, seriously stretches my suspension of disbelief, since he has no real reason to trust Sinestro at all...

I'd love for that to be referenced but I certainly don't expect to be...ever again. It was the last time Sinestro did something interesting.

It would be awesome to see him take down a few construct to construct and then just shut all their rings down. What I want to know is what happened to the entities.... have they even been referenced since the reboot?

The fact that he's fought two of them makes it seem unlikely that they're keeping that story element. On the other hand, he did have the ability (in both cases) to destroy the rings.

Default Jan 2012 Solicits cont'd

For them of us what have been pining "Give Hal back a ring," cover to GL #5 is encouraging. But there's a lot of real estate between #2 and #5 and the solicits are quiet about what to expect, duh. Methinks some drama for and lieth inbetween, and for those who don't like drama, well...

IMHO, he's gotta get the ring back the right way, not as a monkey's paw from Sinestro. Not the first time this tapdance has tantalized a story arc. At the time of the great crisis, one of the Guardians said, "We have based our response to this crisis on what we supposed we knew. If our knowledge has proved incorrect or insufficient--so then has our response." [GL V2 #198 pg 18]. See ya Nov 9th about 10:00 AM after #3 hits the fan.

I think Sinestro can't shut off the yellow rings without a yellow ring. I think Hal will get a real ring back but that would have to happen after the Guardians are kicked out of their place.

That is my take on it as well. If Sinestro had his own ring on, then he could prevent the yellow rings from doing anything, but with a green, he can't It is essentially exactly what he did with Hal, giving him a green ring but him having ultimate control of it. That is probably what he did with the designs of the Sinestro Corps rings.

Yeah exactly, apparently making people his bitches is a power he learned with the ring.

Though I do like what is going on with Sinestro and Hal and can't wait to see them storm Korugar and kick the crap out of the Sinestro Corps.

Possibly. Though if that was really still supposed to be the case, it was rather idiotic of him to destroy the yellow ring from the Sinestro Corps member he killed, rather than taking it for his own use. If Hal can wear two colors of rings, I expect Sinestro would at least assume he could do the same...

Maybe it's easier to destroy the rings than to override their programing to search for a replacement.
