    yeah... That was my first thought too. We now have Gotham with no Batman, and a Krypton 2 generations before Superman. Two ideas I was totally dismissive of, so who knows what will sell anymore.

    There's no way it would unless the GLC movie becomes a major hit. This whole thing started with me saying that if the Reynolds movie had been a big hit, we'd be seeing a "Coast City" show now - kinda tongue-in-cheek, so this is all for gits and shiggles...

Mix in the stuff with his father and a restlessness about pushing boundaries, then open up his world by throwing in random Area 51 type alien shenanigans, (roll it out over several seasons the way "Smallville" and "Gotham" took a bit of time before going full-on comic booky) maybe with the GL movie version of Waller where the government is involved, etc. where we'd see Hal hone the "honesty" part of his character with all the alien government cover-up stuff. And of course you'd have Carol and her dad, Hector and Tom etc... I imagine possibly in the third season there'd be a cameo by Abin Sur....

    And that's just off the top of my head, but yeah, now I wish it had happened....
    totally like this idea.

    put some alien cover up conspiracy in coast city, put the jordan brothers in the middle of it, and ferris aircraft.

    imagine a young black hand doing macabre stuff in coast city.

    Yeah that would be awesome! Way better than any of the prequels they have going or planned right now.

    I thought he was a Flash villain. I remember reading him later in Barry's run after Barry killed Thawne and all that. Infantino was back on the book iirc.

    Carol as well you could do the whole thing that Johns did in Secret Origin with Hal and Carol's fathers friendship and Hal blaming Carol's father for his father's death and all that.

    Way better than Superman's grandfather and all that stuff they are really reaching for. Do it WB. Do it now!!
    Writers have gone so far away from the human elements of Green Lantern.

    The book works best with a split between the two.

    A TV show, for budgetary reasons, would surely make the most of the human elements.

    I wonder if he's going to be rebooted or if Venditti will take from Johns' interpretation of Goldface from his Flash run.

    Venditti isn't doing much for the franchise, no matter where he decides to take the direction of the book. I appreciate some of the good Hal moments he writes in this book, bringing back some obscure villains, pitting the Lanterns against foes like Brainiac or Zod, as well as straying from the emotional spectrum overall, but this franchise needs something more than just "okay" writing, that's been treading water for year now.
