Which is funny considering he ISN'T really a green lantern anymore becuase he got canned and his job was given to his nemesis.

I mean you have to suck really bad as a superhero if your SUPERVILLAIN ARCH-NEMESIS would do a better job than you.

Darth Vader taking over Luke Skywalker's job comes to mind, for some reason.

Oh, yeah...the "archnemesis" who beats a hasty path to Loser Hal's door because - wait for it - the "GL saga" is all about Hal Jordan.

That's right, he's a fired fuck-up and it's still his book. Oh, and it was his book when it was John Stewart's too. And did they ever keep him gone for as much as a year at a time, back when he was Parallax?

Ugh. I'm so sorry. They are pretty awful comics. And also, I'm a little sad that you put some money into Frank Miller's pocket. But, to each his own.
Well, I bought them for the awful. (Next up is The JLA "Act of God" books) and, don't worry, no money in Miller's pocket I bought the books "previously owned" from a long box at Vintage Stock.
Carry on then. They're AWFUL. I think I read two issues and gave up.
God, they are terrible. What on the world was he going for here? The artwork is great though.

While it is no doubt that Hal will always likely be the most known GL in comic fandom, the GL Saga is about whomever the current editors want it to be about.

Actually Jon Stewart is just as well known as Hal.

With exception to the Golden and Dark Ages, Hal has always been the main GL.

In comic fandom, I'd argue that the four main GLs, (Hal, John, Kyle, and Guy) are about as well-known. To others who only have exposure to the characters through cartoons and movies, YMMV.

And, yes, I know that Hal was the main GL. That will likely never change, unless DC wants to pitch the character again like they did in the 90s/00s. During that period, the GL Saga was pure Kyle Rayner while Hal was going from villain, to dead, to alive, to hero, to Spectre, and everything in between.

Morrison I think taken the Batman: Year One approach to Superman.
Agreed, and it's working really well. ...
It's starting to lose me a little. I've read "Year One" Superman one too many times. Also, the art looked really rushed in issue 3, with Jimmy looking like a forty year old slack jawed yokel and Clark like an old disheveled man. For a series that is supposed to be about these people in their 20s that isn't good.

It looks like we're getting the Legion of Superheroes in issue six of Action Comics...but "suspiciously different versions" whatever this means.
