Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?
But that's almost the complete opposite of Hal's character in the comics. His father's death was traumatic, yes, but it was also inspirational to him. He became determined to be the best man he could be, and to follow in his father's footsteps, even to the detriment of his relationship with his family. He wasn't hiding his emotional baggage, he embraced it. He's the kind of person who, after being possessed by an alien entity of fear, murdering countless people, and almost ending the universe, was completely at peace with himself almost immediately.
