I hope the Sinestro Corps and the 7200 number of GLs stay around.

Sorry, I guess I misinterpreted your meaning when you said "Thank Tomasi (when he was editor) and Gibbons for that, not Geoff." That sure sounded like cutting Geoff out entirely. Surely you can see where I would get that impression from that quote, though?

But, yeah, you did later acknowledge that he co-wrote Recharge.

I understand the original poster's thought that Johns has a tendancy to radically change the status quo but I don't really fault him for it. I hate the fact they make Kal-El the last Kryptonian yet continously introduce others, I was against the Loeb revival of Supergirl, at least the Kandor New Krypton has a bit more continuity. IMHO, they've been writing Superman Comics horribly for a while now so Johns going in there and expanding it doesn't really phase me. I love what he has done with GL and he got me back into reading The Flash, so I'll let him have his dozens of Kryptonians in books I don't care about.

Yeah, while he can write the character, I don't think Geoff's style is suited for the streets of Gotham and its inhabitants.

There is nothing delusional about Geoff and his writting, so I really don't get where the TS is coming from at all GL is running on all cylinders right now but it seems the more it grows the more some get their feelings hurt because of it it's weird.

As long as you also give thanks to Joe Kelly, who brought back Oa; you give thanks to Judd Winnick, who brought back the Guardians and repowered the Central Power Battery; you give thanks to Ben Raab, who brought back Kilowog and started the Corps' march back to fulfilment; you give thanks to Peter Tomasi, who first dreamed up the restoration of the Corps and resurrection of Hal Jordan (and received Didio's backing) who picked Geoff Johns' pitch out of the many other "Bring Back Hal Jordan pitches" Tomasi solicited from several writers.

Geoff Johns' piece of the credit pie insomuch as the return of the Corps is quite small. It's there, but small.

I really like what GJ has done with GL. To be honest, I have in the past really liked the idea of the GLC but thought that the character and stories were just boring. After reading Rebirth I changed my mind about that and happily.

As for 7200 GL's instead of 3600, well heck... the universe is a big place.

I like what Geoff does to the characters and making their families bigger I like that it makes them more interesting and more characters in the books.

Well there aren't a lot of Blue Lanterns anyways (and Geoff has said it will be revealed who Hal's (former) Blue Ring will select as well. So that would only leave us with 5, I hope (no pun intended) that they will all live since that would make for nice character developement in future stories, and maybe they'd become a part of the GLC and replace the Alpha Lanterns (they'd get a green ring, and the ALs are pretty powerful anyways, and have two rings as well).

I really don't get why people have a problem with adding to the scope of the series, or the Universe itself. I personally am loving the scope Geoff has been bringing to the DC Universe. I like the idea of each sector having 2 Lanterns. (An paresonally i see it as a way for him to explain kinda in-story why there are so many Earth GL's and keep all active w/o making it to convuluted.) As far as New Krypton, anyone can tell that when all is said an done there won't still be another planet in our Solar System, but it's a great story while there is. What's wrong with it? It's a great chance to really explore Krypton, and Kal's struggle between his Kryptonian heritage and Human upbringing in a new and exciting way. An i dunno about you, but i can't wait to see a major throw down between General Lane's forces and Zod's army. I can see a couple ways to make Batman epic. I mean Morrison an company just got done w/ it in R.I.P. and Battle for the Cowl. An i can't wait for WW to have something Epic that stics, Amazons Attack definatle not with-standing. Keep em comin Geoff.

Maybe Joe Kelly, but Last Will and Testament wasn't that good. Judd and Ben, no thanks. I read their run and even re-read some of again and it wasn't that good. Sure there are key elements from them, but not all of it was crafted to shape what is currently now. Look at the idea of Ion and Parallax and what they are now. Also, are you making sure to give thanks to Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Martin Nodell, Bill Finger, Gil Kane, John Broome, and Julius Schwartz? Heck that list can go on. I've been reading GL for a long time, both good and bad. I'm glad for what we have now and I'm glad that we have a writer like Geoff who is excited, can take the older stuff and make it revelent, and works well with others in order to give us one of the best runs on Green Lantern. How great is it, that at conventions you see people wearing GL related items now?


Also GL: Rebirth didn't bring the corps back, you and I both know that. It did set the stage though. It got all the Earth GLs back together with Kil, it got the Guardians thinking about a GL corps. Mainly it set up the comic book franchise too. So I'm not saying him entirely, because its not. But I am saying Geoff is a good part of that. I remember the last time GL change, we lost everything for one guy. Now that is has changed, we got everything back and including that one guy too. Thats great story telling in my opinion. So go ahead and disect this how you want and lets keep going.

Also Andrew where are your sources for these? I would love to see where the info where this came from: "you give thanks to Peter Tomasi, who first dreamed up the restoration of the Corps and resurrection of Hal Jordan (and received Didio's backing) who picked Geoff Johns' pitch out of the many other "Bring Back Hal Jordan pitches" Tomasi solicited from several writers." I think it would interesting to have known who else was pitching to get Hal back. (Don't take this in an offensive way. I just love reading about behind the scenes items.)

There was a time when a single GL was responsible for their entire sector. This meant they had to be the best of the best, and able to solve problems on their own. But now it seems like they can't do squat without having their partner there with them, or multiple GLs even. Yeah, sometimes in the past there were team ups, but that was only when it was absolutely necessary, not all the time.
ya know, I generally dont like Mav cuz hes an evil Canadian hellbent on ruling the world with cheese-spreads of various flavors (trust me, Ive looked it up!!).........but, I'll be DAMNED if the above isnt 100% TRUTH.

Better be prepared to give most of the credit to Didio then. Without him, none of it including Rebirth would have ever gotten approved if he didn't come in determined to bring back Hal and Barry.

I sort of agree. I've noticed how every crossover seems to involve a massive Lantern light show of countless thousands of Lanterns all firing their Rings at the enemy of the year. To be honest, it is pretty boring seeing the exact same climax over and over.
