    Same here, though I'm still okay in that department in my early '50s.

    Didn't really like them.
    I understand the thinking behind it at the time, but it was an unnecessary change.
    I thought the way Geoff Johns explained them was particularly clever.

    wasn't expecting this page to reach this long... and so closely tied.

    Hal started going gray early. Not a big deal. Not a sign of being "too stressed" or being "old" or anything. He just went gray before 40.
    I went gray in my teens. I have Obama hair now. It is tough for people to pinpoint my age, lol.

    You could actually get some great comedic moments out of that.

    I can imagine some bwah-hah-hah moments when Bruce and other teammates starts noticing Hal with gray hair. People around Hal may start to subtlety freak out thinking he's been infected with the yellow bug again when it's only nature taking its course.

    I could even see Sinestro trying to verify that Parallax (or some part of it) did not return to Hal.

    All the while, Hal is wondering what the hell is wrong with everybody!

    I started going gray as a teen, but it stalled out before it got too far. But once my daughter was born five years ago.....oh yeah, it's making up for lost time. My beard is almost completely gray and my head is halfway there.

    I really need someone better at comedy than I am to write this now.

    My graying was very gradual. Despite going through the process for the past 35 years now, I'm still in the salt-and-pepper stage (though more salt than pepper at this point ).
