Meh, never been a fan of John. He's the Lantern with the least personality. If this is true, and the new creative team follows through, I won't be too broken up.
I've been a fan of John Stewart since Cosmic Odyssey when his hubris led to the death of an entire planet. Early 90s John Stewart was a pretty compelling character when he was working through the repercussions of his arrogance.

Kill John Stewart? Hell, no. He's way more interesting than Jordan. GL: Mosaic was one of the best comics of the 90s.

But now they have another black Green Lantern. And he's also a Muslim. And he carries a pistol along with a power ring and wears what looks like a ski mask. So it's all good.

They can't kill Stewart!!! Who will host the Daily Show then?!?!

But seriously, they can't kill one of their very few high profile minority characters. Not cool.

Well, there's a LOT we'd have to accept for that to be true. First, we have to accept that his liaison with the dinosaur made it pregnant. Second, we'd have to assume that the encounter successfully gave the offspring his radiation immunity. Then we have to accept that this one, lone, radiation-immune dinosaur was enough to ensure the survival of the species.

I really became a big John Stewart fan during his solo series Mosaic in the 90's and then his turn in the late 90's in the JLU was great main stream exposure.

Kill John Stewart....bad idea, just horrid.

QFT. A whole generation of potential comics readers know John as their first Green Lantern.

He's my second GL, but quickly became my favourite I wonder if this will create another backlash that will force them to pull the plug on this idea?

Yeah, John was great in the 90s, but he's barely done a thing besides killing Mogo in twenty years. I'm not saying I want him killed off, quite the contrary. However, I don't think I would get so up in arms over it if they did. What I would really like is if they actually gave him some good stories again. GLC has been Guy's book. As much as I love Guy (he's my favorite Green Lantern) I really do want to see the rest of the Corps, John included, get some more time.

Anyone want to take bets on when WB decides to say "fuck it" and just turns the publishing line over to Nolan as well?

The money is crap, the audience is tiny, why is a big fish like Nolan going to waste his time on something so peripheral?

They just need to get rid of DiDio...which is going to be a hard thing to do since he seems to have Diane Nelson's support. So if Nelson is removed as CEO then perhaps there will be some kind of regime overhaul again. I doubt this will happen.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Ugh, I can't believe they had Platinum in the latest JL issue. I was hoping they'd forget the Metal Men entirely, or atleast maybe bring them back in a good way, maybe in a backup story that isn't grim or depressing. Their back up story from Doom Patrol a few years ago (written by the awesome team of Keith Giffen and JM dematteis) was great. Having a humorous, positive story in the New 52 would have been nice. Unfortunately, DC hates stuff like that now, which is why I was hoping dC would forget they exist. To be fair, Platinum seemed to be leading to something interesting, but I saw what they showed of Magnus. He's propably some young tech nerd now, and the Metal Men will probably just end up being military weapons that appear sometimes in the background.

Also, a bit off topic, but was I the only one who liked the Metal Men series where they were retconned into having been real people that Magnus had worked with, who he'd put into the bodies to save them? I thoiught that was interesting, and I was really annoyed when DC retconned that later to have all been in Magnus's head.

Well it looks like DC is not going to go through with the asinine idea to kill John Stewart. Now it would be great if they had actually gave him story lines and character development beyond destroying planets.
