    Nope. GL opened well.

    John Stewart being in the film wouldn't have made the #hitty script or the somewhat awful special effects any different.

    Hal Jordan, for the fact that half this thread is already about him (though I don't get it, Hal, Kyle and John have all been screwed over in favor of each other over the past 20 years, but now now Hal, Kyle, John and Guy all head their own books, so let bygones by bygones!).

    Wonder Woman, due to the fact that her popularity hasn't kept pace with Batman and Superman and her fans are by far the pickiest about the book sticking to their personal vision.

    Teen Titans, due the fact that no title has probably had peaks (The New Teen Titans Era and the Johns Era) and valleys (everything else) that Teen Titans has. Fans seem to consider the New Teen Titans to be holy scripture and anything that deviates from that is controversial.

    Actually Superboy(kon-el) is the character who is the most confrontational.
    He is a clone,not Clark,and not his son.
    Damn dirty clone
    Damn dirty hybrid
    How should he act? Cocky and fun? Mature,but a knucklehead? Pissed,but with a heart of gold? Confused about his feelings,ultra serious?
    What should he dress like? Leather jacket? Black tshirt? Tron suit?
    What should be his powers? TTK? Limited kryptonian powers? Ultra powerful Psionic powers? Mix of both powersets?
    Clone of Westfield? Luthor/Clark? Jon/Lois/Clark?

    Nobody can agree on anything with this kid, so he gets my vote, and he should get yours to.
    Dont mess with the "S"

    Mutation is a bitch

    Bring back kon-el/Conner kent

    It would have allowed for someone other 'oh, god not him again' Ryan Renolds to carry the film though. A more compelling actor who could keep pace with the perfectly cast Sinestro could have made the film quasi watchable....

    Maybe.

    Honestly I thought Reynolds was fine and the least of the films problems.

    As this whole thread has shown, Hal certainly seems to piss some folks off (Frankly, Hal's my fav, but I don't hate or even dislike ANY of the human Lanterns) so yeah, he's controversial.

    I agree that Wonder Woman fans have often conflicting views on how she should be presented and they're very passionate about it. Heck, she's a character I never considered myself a BIG fan of, and even I have taken sides on the 'clay vs zeus' daughter' angle. I suppose its a sign of how iconic she is.

    Folks have already mentioned Barbara Gordon, and for good reason, but poor Nightwing gets some debate as well. Some of us are worried Forever Evil will screw up the character or at least have him go extra grimdark when I (for one) have always thought he worked better as one of the more upbeat members of the bat family. We'll see.

    Starfire had some controversy about her nu52 introduction but that's died down.

    Not any particular character, but any formerly MARRIED character is facing some controversy. DC and Marvel both seem to think marriage=dull where as some fans miss the relationships terribly.

    As for Tommy Jones, he's incredibly childish and throws tantrums when people don't like characters he does. Whatever he says is easily brushed aside.
    I honestly don't care about anyone's opinions on this thread. At the end of the day, I'll still like Hal as my favorite DC character. However, the reasons you say Hal Jordan are controversial have little to nothing to do with his comic history and more to do with your obsession with a cartoon that ended years ago.

    First of all, who cares?
    Second of all, did you even read what I said? I specifically mentioned his character history. That's all that needed saying on the matter.
    Third of all, I don't make distinctions as to what happens in COMICS and what happens everywhere else for the sake of this discussion. A character is a character is a character. Hal Jordan is Hal Jordan, no matter what medium you find him in.
