Do we know what he was referring to? There were a few creepy elements to the Arisia romance.

I pretty much assume that's what he meant. I could see someone calling the overly sexualized post Rebirth Hal a bit creepy, but as Mr. Ed has pointed out pre-Johns he wasn't really a womanizer so much as a serial monogamist. However, the Arisia thing was weird then. I didn't really find it so strange then, but maybe because I was a young teen myself.

No, that's not what it was. He was referring to Hal freaking out and turning into Parallax.

Things were different in comics back then. It hadn't yet been established that nothing awful was ever for keeps. DC really intended for the nuking of the GLC to be permanent. Ron Marz was instructed to write Emerald Twilight so there could be no undoing it, which he tried to do.

Some people were urging DC to just reboot the property, which Johns refused to do. Even though I want to see a reboot now, in hindsight, it's good that Johns didn't do one back then. I shudder to think how drastically he'd have altered it.

I wonder if Morrison will take any inspiration for this series from Alan Moore's Top 10.

Looks good. Glad to see we are visiting concwpts like the Spider Guild. I'm looking forward to Morrison's take on them.
