Red face Why haven't they done this ?

I don't know about you guys but i'm suprised they haven't done this already: link Alan scott further to the green lanterns we all know and love.
REBOOT ALAN SCOTT
Yes,That's right link alan scott to the green lantern corps
It would seem rather fitting too with green lantern gaining a lot of attention.
I don't know if a thread like this has already been created and I don't really care cos i haven't seen one.

So why ?:

1.Magic ? Seriously ? kinda seems abit outdated ,let's make it pure alien technology ,the first green lantern battery ever made.

2.His costume looks shit.
Let's face it Jay garrick and Alan scott down right have the worst damn costumes ever ,Red?Purple ? and Green ?
No disrespect to people who have followed alan scott for long time but I think giving hiim a cool costume would just show decency to the character.
and you look me in the eye and say the sentinel costume was any better.

I understand what dc were doing trying to make some one different but seriously , you wonder why he got cancelled ?

3.It would create in my opinion a different atmosphere between alan scott and the GLC ,and i know they're already pretty friendly , with kyle seeing alan as an almost father figure but seriously there could be a whole new storyline, involving alan meeting the guardians becoming a powerful green lantern.Maybe even give his ring an upgrade.

So basically instead of me thinking alan scott is the worst green lantern,let's make him more interesting.

What would this open up:

Loads of cool JSA story lines

Awkwardness between alan and kyle ,fighting along each other , possibly later between themselves

and of course a new earth green lantern

I don't know about you guys but he seems a bit outdated , i know he's supposed to be older but ...I think he deserves more recognition and status.

Now go ahead and flame the living daylights out of me if you want ,but all i'm saying is how would you get alan scott going again ?, perhaps a new ongoing solo series ? or expand on my idea .Disregard this thread altogether if you want , just throwing an idea out there.

Sure, and let's reboot Superman so that he's a Wayne instead of a Kent.

Because Alan Scott is his own character with his own background story that is not related to the "Green Lantern Corp"

They don't need to reboot him.

Just give him a GLC ring.

I agree. There's no real problem with Alan Scott's powers being very very very loosly linked to the GLC...if he was just another GL...then frankly he'd be...just another GL...and DC is making enough of a mess with the "Fab Four" as things stand....

While it isn't that commonplace, sometimes comic book charaters of different generations will share a similar or even the same name, but the powers are completely different...and there's nothing wrong with that.

Take Starman for example...they've all been pretty different haven't they?

The Starheart was essentially forged by the Guardians. Dont really need anything else to connect him to the GLC, and there shouldnt be anything else that connects him to it.

No he doesn't, if the story doesn't call for Alan Scott, Alan Scott should not be used.

Alan Scott in the Green Lantern Corps would be like James T. Kirk as a permanent crew member on Picard's Enterprise. The novelty would wear off very soon, and he would stick out like a sore thumb.

1. You asked to be flamed if it warranted it.
2. Learn the proper way to use puntuation and cform a complete sentence before knocking someone on their spelling abilities, especially when only 1 word was mispelt.

Uh what? Daring to post an opinion on the matter at hand was an attack on your post? Did you even bother reading it? It was my opinion on the idea of rebooting Alan Scott it had nothing to do with your post.

Nah, don't put him in the GLC. Put him in Emerald Warriors. But give him a GLC ring just to simplify matters.

I agree Alan doesn't need a retcon style reboot. I do believe however he needs a new long format retelling. I honestly would love to see dc create a new imprint. DCGA (DC Golden Age) and use it to create lines of comics based in the golden age with only golden age characters. It could allow for modern retelling and cleaning up of GA character origins. As well as giving us new solo adventures of those characters in ways we haven't seen in decades.

Alan Scott WAS rebooted. Originally his power had nothing to do with the GLC at all. After all, he predates the GLC. Now it's connected to them through the Guardian's involvement with the Starheart.

They rebooted him again in the 90's. While the costume itself was awsome, the situation Alan was in was not. He was a young man still married to an elderly woman ... kinda wierd because it was always the central focus. Moreover they made him angrier than Guy, Jhon, or Hal were ever depicted. This reboot lasted a long time until he was slowly changed back.

As for making him a GLC GL ... why bother? It might be a new setup for Alan, but it certainly wouldn't be unique for the GL franchise in particular. All that'd happen is that he's cut off all his old villains, his connection to Earth, and his long established mystical connection in favor of making him Hal Jordan lite.

Now I'd love it if he had a greater role in GL or one of the other titles. But I don't think he really needs to be part of the GLC proper. I don't see how that'd actually help him.

I myself have only known Alan Scott through the GL comics, but I would be interested in seeing more of his adventures.

And I loved his modern suit which he wore during Zero Hour. Though his original one does make for an easy cosplay lol.

For the last time, he has no connection with Guy. Quit trying to put Alan in places where he doesn't belong. Plus you don't like how Tomasi writes Guy what makes you think he could right Alan any better.

Alan is fine in the JSA
