There's a better look at Hal's new look here (in sketch form at least):
http://www.newsarama.com/24324-telos...4-preview.html

The Gauntlet and pack have definitely been streamlined. I like that the mask is still part of the look and I have to admit to being intrigued by this story if only because Hal seems to be front and center of his own book again.

Yo.

hunh. I just now realized: him w/that hood reminds me of his as the Spectre.

also, if that pack & gautlet function just like the Ring & Battery....I wonder why would he need a jet?

I imagine it's just easier (and less conspicuous) getting around the universe in a ship when you're a wanted man. It also seems like he's going to have traveling buddies, so it will likely be more for them. (and the aforementioned "less-standing-outiness." )

I just around to reading the "Green Arrow" preview, and it seems Hal and Ollie are styling themselves pretty much exactly the same now, with the longer hair. Maybe Ollie can "Hard Travel" the stars with Hal in his ship...

I wonder if maybe they are trying to cash in on the guardians of the Galaxy trend. Hal's a renegade now with a nice new Starlord trench coat. He is traveling in a ship of assorted aliens. Maybe I am missing my mark here but I am seeing some possable connections and it seems like the kinda dumb crap DC would pull.

It would be funny if Hal suddenly turns bad in a shorter amount of time than in Vol3. I recall the writers complaining they didn't have enough time to develop the character, in about 3 issues. Can they trump that with a 2-issue switch?

I don't see Hal actually going bad. The whole point was he just takes the rap to spare the rest of the Corps. To make him ACTUALLY go bad at this point would make that move especially pointless.

Well he is kind of a outlaw now,wich is a Starlord trait. If he starts hanging around with Ch'p again then I will know something is up.

I suppose it will depend on how many "Green Lantern Power Gloves" they sell at Walmart... (although now that I've said it... I want one!! )

After Ch'p, they'll add Medphyll, Brik, and... Jade?

Actually the renegade/Starlord thing hasn't really been done before with Hal, or has it? If so, props for coming up with something new.

Oh my gawd they could almost completley copy it couldn't they!

I think Guy was kinda doing the Renegade GL thing,so it would have seemed silly to have Hal doing it to back in the day.

Haha! I only said Jade because she's green and so is Gamora. But there must be a better fit, personality-wise and style-wise, I just can't think of one. Some girl more "macho" if you take my drift. Woulda said Lyssa Drak, but she's not a GL. Arisia... not rugged enough. Who?

And yeah, the thought definitely crossed my mind about Guy being renegade in Vol2/3. That was epic. There weren't any Guardians at the time tho. We'll see if Hal's run is epic or not...

I'd say Laira, if being dead isn't a problem.

What about the leftover clones/duplicates from Convergence? Are they going to join Hal & his starship?

I hate that you even suggested that....although not nearly as much as I hate myself for knowing that I'd snatch the first two that I saw to have one for my display and one to play with when no one else is around.

Why did you illuminate yet another level of my geekiness, Kane, why?

Since when has being dead ever been a problem in the DCU?

Being a child of the Nintedo age,trust me when I tell you there is nothing good about power gloves.

I like it, but if issue #41 is any sort of preview of what the rest of this new status for Hal will be.... he either needs to keep the mask on full time when outside of his ship or leave it off. Everybody seemed to know of Hal Jordan by name and appearance anyway so it's pointless.

I think the hood is just there because a helmet would be a little too Starlord like...

Drop the mask. Keep the long hair. After all, he can't make visits to his favorite interstellar salon while he's "on the run" from a Corps that appears not to be chasing him with great enthusiasm. (If they can track the rings, why not the gauntlet?) I can excuse Tan's art for now by telling myself "he used the gauntlet to disguise his appearance..."

Robe with hood may also be a nod to a Jedi look. He should look scruffy. Like a nerf-herder.

Sidekicks? Let's start with a bad-ass computer (more about this on the issue thread).

Well, that was part of the reason for him taking it. My guess would be that being a prototype it's not "networked."

I went back to look at the first few appearances of the gauntlet but let my nephew take care of over half my collection. Seeing as how the entire planet of Mogo is gone along with the CPB, the gauntlet not being on the network makes the most sense. With the backpack acting as it's battery, it more than likely taps into the spectrum of it's own volition. The backpack, if you think about it, came before personal power batteries and the CPB both. It should very much be a prototype for the CPB as well as the personal batteries of the Corps.

I'm more into this Starlord knockoff Hal than I am dead/WL Kyle. Never in a million years thought I'd like Hal over Kyle...
