So?
A whole generation of potential comic readers knew Hal as their first Green Lantern when they killed him.

Guess what eventually happened to that dead guy. Guess what happens to most dead guys in comic books.

(Unless this is the first arc you've ever read, I apologize for the spoiler of "Dead doesn't equal dead", especially once Bucky AND Jason Todd came back)
And Barry Allen.
At this point are Gwen Stacy and Uncle Ben still the only "big" characters still dead after a long time?

QFT. A whole generation of potential comics readers know John as their first Green Lantern.
Unfortunately most of these potential comic readers don't read comics so frankly imo their opinions shouldn't be considered. I'm looking at most hipsters/tumblr-users here that Marvel has spent all their time pandering to.
True, most don't. But can DC afford to not consider those who do?
