I have a feeling that Jessica's last action was entirely what Guy wanted.

I assume her punching him is going to lead to them becoming best buds and Guy giving her the seal of approval for readers.

You know something. For someone they like to depict as an unlikable asshole he sure has alot of best friends. Hal was his best friend [pre-coma and personality swap] then it was Kyle post-Rebirth and currently its John.

At this rate Jessica will be his next love interest. I christian them Guz.

That's true too. And she's a crazy bitch. I can see Guy thinking that would be hot for a little while.

I guess before, but I didn't think of the age thing until they brought it up. When they had that first kiss in GLC I was a young teen myself and since I identified with Hal, I didn't particularly stop to think of it as creepy. I think it was the first time I cared about "the kissy stuff" in comics.



Then in Action, I just thought her being a model and Hal getting all distracted and soap opera-y was funny.



Mostly, I just like Arisia and we see more of her and her romantic side if she's hooked up with a main character. In real life, I find it creepy if a guy my age (37) goes after a college girl, let alone an on-earth illegal relationship.

Again, this is probably the Trekkie in me. Just like I want green girlfriend, I also want a pointy-eared girlfriend.

It's too bad Arisia gets NO focus in the current titles. I prefer her to Soranik, as I'm partial to those characters from the 1980s Steve Englehart comics!

What issue number is Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps on now? Like... 22 or something? I think if Venditti was going to do something with Arisia, he would have done it, or at least alluded to it by now. Whenever I glance at the title, she is left near completely out of it aside from appearing in the crowd here and there.

I think this scene here has been her biggest role in the whole thing, and her only line has been "Aaagh":



Personally, I don't care for the set up of the GLC title focusing on four Earth guys with an army of aliens way in the background. To me, that's just not a very good paradigm because what's the point of these fantastic aliens when they're not important? Star Wars manages to pull something like that off, but I think the fact that the GL characters actually come from Earth (and not some totally made up setting where Earth isn't around), changes things.

I like the idea of an Earthling (or maybe 2, but that's it) among a bunch of aliens, not really a group of Earthlings who spend time only with each other, and then there are some aliens waaaaaaaay off to the side. I think the joy of reading such a title should be seeing an earthling (like the reader) interacting with all this alien stuff. Something is lost when these human characters primarily only interact with each other, and the aliens are just an aside, for the most part.

That's the problem with doing one GL title that crams Hal, John, Guy, Kyle and any aliens in the GLC into it. No room for any of the lower tier characters to breathe, let alone get any development.

Meanwhile, the two diversity project shitbags get a whole title to themselves, based on Earth, AND show up in the JLA titles.

I miss Arisia being a part of the cast that gets to do meaningful things too. I cut my teeth as a Green Lantern fan on Steve Englehart's run with Joe Staton, Bruce Patterson and Mark Farmer. Great times!

Guessing Carol fell from grace in the eyes of Hal fans after she dumped him and went with Kyle but other that apparently being the only girl of the GL Corps Arisia seem a little too irrelevant to date anyone nowdays and even more now that Soranik and Jessica are here. Yea she is hot but kinda boring since she doesnt have that childish personality anyomore. Ironically it seem it is only when she is a love interest when there is focus on her like in her time with Sodam Yat.

The way I see it every GL has his thing. Guy is about comedy. Hal is the poster child. John is about the Corps. And Kyle about relationships/banging the lantern ladies.

What are Jess and Baz about btw I been reading all their issues and still havent figure it out...

Well, Hal + Carol is the classic pairing. That's GL's Lois and Clark. So, I wouldn't mind a return to that. I feel like it has to happen eventually anyway. Hal + Arisia may have been my favorite but realistically I know it's not the default relationship and I highly doubt they'll return to it.

Same for me. Hal+Carol is the standard, and it HAS to go back to that, so I enjoy these little flings Hal has when he can get them. Now that I think about it, it HAS been a while. Hal has been married to his job for a long time. His fling with Cowgirl was forgotten about before it even began. I wouldn't ind seeing him and Arisia rekindle their thing for a while.

By the way, as Lein Wein started his run in Green Lantern (and Hal Jordan returned to Earth), poor Dorine received the same treatment Carol Ferris has received now with respect to Kyle: 'Dorine? The woman who has spent the last months with me in space? Uh... No, I donīt know who are you talking about?'

Yeah, Hal pretty much kicked Dorine to the curb when he went home. He wasn't going to explain her to Carol! Total Michael Carleone moment there.

I prefer Soranik but at the same time I think she could improve, also with her current Sinestro Corps costume she is a little overdressed I really liked her old costume.

She has so much potential for costumes, and just imagine her as Indigo Lantern, she would litterally be Dejah Thoris from Warlords of Mars
