    I definitely don't think Hal should ever be a stick-in-the-mud.

    I agree on all counts.

    Seems unanimous. I also thought of John. He as GL leader seems a better option than Hal.
    #Dr.Wertham would be proud of you.

    John, but with the caveat that while he is the least likely to act irresponsibly, when he does it's usually huge and with disastrous results.

    I like Guy quite a bit in general, but I have to agree that the "Warrior" bit was definitely underrated. I especially loved his bar!

    Hal can be when he isn't forced to be one of the two extremes he's been stuck with: frat boy or boring old dude.

    In general, probably John though.

    Thinking back on it, even during the post-Crisis "GLC" series, John would probably win then too, but for different reasons - at that time, he was mature and stable - married to Kat, a good head on his shoulders and even-tempered, generally good-natured and light--hearted. Very different man now as he's depicted, but still the most "responsible adult."

    Yeah, this bit always bothered me. Not that Alan Scott wasn't retroactively selected by the Guardians, but that he remains so divorced from the franchise that he founded. He should be the "head" of the Lanternverse, and he is not.

    And you need to look no further than DC's OTHER major mantle-passing solo superhero franchise to see how it could be done right.

    Jay Garrick, whether as part of clutter-Earth or Earth-2, almost always felt like he naturally belonged to the Flashverse. Jay feels kinda like the grandpa who let his "son"/ the "dad" (Barry) take over the family business. Of course, Barry died, Wally took over, but then Barry resurrected / came out of retirement and his presence demoted/erased Wally's very existence ... actually the metaphor falls apart here.

    By comparison, Alan feels more like the deadbeat that left Hal with his moniker and nothing more, and Hal built an empire despite Alan's existence.

    Not sure if Rebirth changed any of that.

    If there was a way to more fully incorporate Alan Scott into the Lanternverse, I'd be all for it.

    Oh, and I voted John Stewart, btw.

    Agreed, and I think leadership just weights down Hal. Its not a bad experiment to see how the character deals with it, but more than anything Hal is the point man/advance guy.

    But Alan wasn't even around any more when the "Green Lantern" franchise was first started back in 1959.



    Alan Scott's last solo story appearance prior to Hal's first appearance had been in 1949.



    And his last appearance with the JSA had been at the start of 1951.
    Alan wouldn't appear again until 1962 (in a flashback) / 1963 (in a Flash story), and then he was living on a separate Earth (which lasted until 1985/1986).

    Imo, Hal's a good leader to follow into battle, but he's not the "stand over the Big Map" kinda leader or the "day-to-day" leader.
