    I haven't read any books with Hal from Rebirth, but I was curious if his brothers Jack and James have ever appeared in the New 52 or Rebirth continuities. Anyone know?

    Funny enough, if you go over to the X-board, some posters would say Hal is not a white guy based on his Jewish heritage.

    Some consider Kyle a POC.

    Which only leaves us with.....Guy.

    Sometimes the whole race thing can get ridiculous.

I would be all in. Like some kind of space frontier gotta find our way back to the thing so we can stop that guy story. F%*k it, put Carol on that team too. She'll be the one off color lantern like Razer in GLTAS. I would drop Hal in a second if that ever happened. I would start my own podcast devoted entirely to that comic. I would collect all 900 smelly Korok seeds to get my hands on the first issue. I would get a prostate exam from the Incredible Hulk once a week just to see that chit happen in my lifetime. Light 'em up!

I'd like the comics to be more concerned with who these people are and what they mean to each other, rather than simply reaffirming their core personas again and again.

    I think the older brother Jack is dead, but Hal's younger brother Jim and his family showed up several times in Venditti's GL. He hasn't shown up in Rebirth at all though.

    I think the GL titles are fun, but creatively stagnant. What elements would you like them to expand upon?

    I'd be happy to see more characters interaction. Considering four GLs are in one book it feels like we haven't gotten very much catcher interaction. Hal and Kyle chat sometimes but it isn't often that deep and I don't think we've really seem the four of them taking much until the most recent arc.

    Jack should have been resurrected. IIRC, he kinda gave Hal grief over his life decisions. Jack could be a great source of conflict if Hal ever reestablished a civilian life on Earth.

    Jack would be a better source of conflict than the now cliched stuff we get with Carol (before she went MIA).

    Is it true the Jordan brothers were inspired by the Kennedy brothers?

    I'm pretty sure Jim was referenced in rebirth. I want to say in that issue of Flash where Hal dropped in, he was either visiting Jim or going to visit him. But I feel like Jim and his family are alive and intact.

    Oh it's the most ridiculous thing humans invented. I'm sure if Guy did a 23 & me, he'd find out he's 2% native american.

    It makes these two panels even more hilarious.

    I agree! Jim had been dead before Johns GL Rebirth and was resurrected with no fuss, they should have done the same to Jack.

    Jim and his family are alive, I just meant they haven't shown up.

    That's what I've heard and I wouldn't be surprised. Hal's whole family seemed oddly Kennedy-esque, he had a couple rich uncles and I think at one point Jack was a judge or a senator or something. Oddly enough we saw a ton of his extended family in the silver and bronze age but I don't think his parents were even mentioned until much later.

    Funny, I thought Hal's family was working class. At least the modern version.

    Hals brothers when first introduced were very cool and great characters.

    They were shown as a very close trio but with distinct personalities.

    You had Jack who seemed to be the most ambitious . He was voted District attorney and was a leader.
    Then Hal who was more independent and a daredevil but still very respectable as a test pilot.
    Then you had Jim the youngest who was treated as more of a kid and had more of a carefree personality.

    Their uncle was actually a judge and there was one story where this crook was going after the uncle, Jack and Jim who he thought was GL who had all put him away. Great story.

    There was this cute recurring plot that Sue , Jim's girlfriend , was convinced Jim was really GL and Hal covering for him sometimes.

    They appeared quite a few time In the beginning. So good and also very unique . You don't usually see that type of family dynamic in comics. I wish they would bring them back like that.

    If I am remembering right, Jack & his wife were retconned into dying in Coast City, but his brother Jim and his family appeared at the end of Hal's New 52 title during the end of the DCYou era.
