So we currently have quite a few GL titles going on and their not all so great. I personally like Kyle the best, but New Guardians has been had to stomach. (The reasons for the sinestro corps member and red lantern to stick around seemed pathetic at best, Its hard to believe they would actually stick around and help if they were not getting more out of it.) GL Corps has got incredibly boring now that all the focus is on Guy. Red Lanterns was bad from the start. I actually have no beef with the main title.
If one of the green Lanterns were to die (permanently) it opens up room story-wise for a new earth lantern and of course bushiness wise because they could drop a book, or if Guy or John died they simply do away with Red Lanterns to add a book (still gotta kill a human green lantern for it to work story-wise, I mean how many lanterns does earths sector need anyhow?)
Just imagine we could have a new original lantern with more earth based stories that wasn't thought up at the very least 20 years ago? Perhaps a female? or a homeless guy given a fresh chance with the ring?
Or something DC really hasn't done before? Perhaps someone on earth gets a blue power ring? (If so it better not be a girl, too f*cking predictably and too boring, would really only work with a guy) Or maybe a yellow ring once the sinestro corps is back? (we all know indigo would be boring, and black just couldn't work)
Or hell we could follow saint walker as he travels space looking to help people wherever he can?
But dear god something fresh. Guy was made far too long ago and is dated and not the kind of person many people can relate to or like. Many people enjoyed Hal being evil, one of the most original permanent moves made to such a big character in any comic book, and it cheapens that by just making a few excuses for how it wasn't his fault and bringing him back. John went from being a respectable character who happened to be an architect before, to someone whose whole focus is based around his former job (aka marine, aka lack of personal identity dude who just blindly follows orders aka boring and unlikable) Kyle while interesting, lives in the hardest to believe world of them all, the world of the New Guardians. All the characters in his story are shallow and fake and are wrote in a fashion that is unbelievable to make them advance the plot (instead of the plot advancing and the author writing the characters how he think they would react.)
SO, if you could kill off one of the green lanterns for good, to make way for better stories, which would it be? Or should we keep the same four for the next five hundred years? Or should earth be like a green lantern magnet and eventually have like 95 GL's while the other sectors get two or three?
P.S Biaz was not included because he is new, doesn't have his own book, isn't really a green lantern (just has a ring Sinestro made) and could be could off very soon anyway for all we know.
