    Jessica should become a metahuman with powers unique to her. So no constructs or light based powers of any kind. From there she should remain a member of the Justice League.

    Simon should become a cop or something similar. Maybe help out the Bat Fam from time to time.

    They should go be agents of ARGUS. Their expierences as GLs would make them an asset.

    There is nowhere else for them because you would have to go an give them superpowers and another hook.

    Dark Matter in metal and some mystical mumbo jumbo for JLD/Mystick u would work.

    They could have been the new Hawk couple. Or one of them could be Airwave.

    But alas that moment has past.

    Putting them in Detective Comics is the last thing I'd do. For starters, I'm not even sure what you'd do with them there. I like the characters but without their rings, they don't really bring much to help the detective team, either in the field or in a support capacity. You could I suppose have them doing civilian stuff, but that brings up the next issue, story space. Detective is already crowded with characters, so there is very little space to go off of the hero stuff. I can't see them getting any more panel time than say, Harper Row, who has appeared briefly in the book. On top of that, there is already discussions about how fan favorites aren't getting enough face time, so adding 2 characters with no link to the bat mythos isn't going to go over well.

    Making them stop being lanterns would destroy any chance they have of staying around. There's no place for them anywhere outside of the GL books.

    The GL situation is an unfortunate problem but you have so many earth lanterns that you could make a team book with them and be done with it
    Otherwise some characters need to be set into limbo because no one is benefiting from the current situation

    Their book is 40 issues in and still selling 25,000 copies (ie well above cancellation range). There is literally nothing needing to be changed except that you don't like them. After 50-60 issues it will dip below 20,000 and you just relaunch with a new #1.

    Very few new characters sell this well. This is a success story, regardless of whether the old Green Lantern fandom feels threatened by it.
    Current Pull: Lazarus, Invincible, Seven to Eternity, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lanterns, Mystik U, Nightwing, Wonder Woman, Daredevil, Secret Warriors, Black Bolt, Black Panther, Archie, XO Manowar.

    Why are we so obsessed about re-branding Baz and Cruz? They've earned their stripes and there's more than enough room for them in the GL franchise.

    We aren't - or at least I'm not - but Trey Strain certainly is. I've lost track of how many posts and threads he has that focus relentlessly on getting Jessica and Simon out of the GL business. As a favor to their fans, apparently!

    Since he knows what's going to happen to their book (falling sales, cancellation, and he'll repost the poll after that, possibly with a side order of "I told you so!"), and he knows exactly how many Earth GLs the DCU can handle, and he knows that there is space for them in the Bat books, and he knows what we shouldn't suggest they do as non-GLs...

    Please don't suggest that they become different colored Lanterns. The emotional spectrum seems to be on the way out, and I imagine their fans would like to see them remain visible.

    And please don't suggest putting them in a B Justice League title that would be canceled within four years.
    ... the only question I have is why he cares about the opinions of less knowledgable and less prescient people like ourselves.

    Couldn't click on 'no' quick enough.

    In John Stewarts case, it's because I'd rather see him headlining a 'Green Lantern Corps' series. Maybe not the head of the overall Corps itself but a prominent Lantern with a team of alien recruits under him. As for Baz and Cruz...

    Would I like to see them stripped of their rings and pointlessly inserted into something like Detective Comics? Like I said, where's the 'no' option?

    For me this is actually a bit of a blessing. One of the OP's previous targets was Aquaman, a character that he plainly had never read properly and had no understanding of. The OP actually once insisted that the Aquaman title was on it's way out and that Arthur needed seriously overhauling to 'rescue' him from obscurity. I remember those conversations well. Sadly, the Aquaman title is still out there, something like 18 months later. The 'I told you so's' haven't happened yet in that case and maybe won't in this also.
