The Newsarama article said that we only know about Justice League International.

Okay, so on Earth 2 Jay Garrick's Flash basically has Hal Jordan's GL origin?

I like this comic so far.

Got caught up on Justice League, too. Particularly enjoyed Allen flubbing the "bad cop" routine, though you could see that one coming.

I'm sick of seeing news stories headlining "GREEN LANTERN IS GAY!". Alan Scott is the fifth tier Green Lantern after Hal, John, Kyle, and Guy. These people do not know comics at all... nerd rant over.

Young Man, Alan Scott wrote the textbook on Will Power for Green Lanterns.

The Phantom Stranger does deserve his own series. However, Didio writing it? No thanks!
He is a good writer with stuff like Omac.

I think he is just bad working with the writers with exception to the older generation.

And isn't it an alternate universe Green Lantern?

Have we heard what other three titles have been given the axe?
I think they said on either Newsarama or CBR that they will be running more than 52 series when these start.

No. According to the article they plan on sticking with the fifty two monthly titles.

He was the first Green Lantern and he was always from an alternate universe.

Except when he wasn't.

Yeah, I know. Just pointing out that he wasn't ALWAYS from an alternative universe. Thus the winky.

Didn't he spend the last 25 or so years being part of the "main" universe?

Just found the article, it was actually IGN.
IGN wrote:
Last time DC launched new titles – dubbed the Second Wave back in May – they also lost a few of the original relaunch books, keeping the number of series in the DCU proper at 52. This time, however, that’s not the case. When I asked DC about this, they confirmed that they will indeed be publishing more than 52 titles come September. This doesn’t mean nothing will be getting canned – Justice League International has already been rumored to be ending at #12 in August, and Aaron Lopresti joining Sword of Sorcery appears to confirm this -- but it looks like they are no longer holding onto the "52 titles" rule

Captain Atom, Voodoo, Blue Beetle and Grifter are the titles most in danger of cancellation.
