Hal was insane, but thanks to Geoff he can blame it on Parallax. Hell I'm gonna throw some powder in my hair, be an asshole and play the Parallax card. Lol
:| lol. you know you're a nerd wheeeen...you try and role play! Love ya! :DSeeing that this is from '95, how long did they have Hal crazy for? lol.
That's an awesome idea JT! And when they ask you what your problem is, you can just point at your hair and explain that you were possessed by the living embodiment of fear!Early '94 to late '96 was when Hal was evil Falisha. I could be wrong though, but I'm pretty sure on those dates(I think!).
Lol EXACTLY! I'll probably have to have some kind of yellow on to help my explanation, and just hope the cop that stops me is a comic fan... :P
HA yeah, that last part is probably the most important! :D
Don't give him any encouragement of that idea X. lol. he might try and pull that jerk move on me .lol. And woo early '94 what a great year! lol. Anyways, I'm pretty sure you're correct, you're the Comic King. I'm shocked it lasted that long. Lol. Thought maybe some Hal fans would be upset about that lol.
Well you could always do it back to him then Falisha! That would show him!I know if I was following Hal's comic back in the day I'D have been mucho pissed about DC suddenly turning him into space-Hitler! I guess they tried to temper Hal's actions by making it so that he was only doing things that he thought was right, it wasn't like he was stealing candy and robbing banks, but still, he was def evil, which must have been a shock to a lot of GL fans(like Geoff Johns I guess...).
Lol. Naah he gets a temper too quick. Don't want him to go all crazy on me. :-P JK. And yeah I think I'm with you about being pissed turning Hal into douche bag comrade. lol. Well good thing is, he's okay now. Lol. So hopefully no more evil Hal. lol.
Sorry but for me Parallax Hal was logical!One of the things I liked about the old Jordan was that he was getting visibly older. Not wiser, though. Instead, he went through a long character arc of rebuilding his lost youth. Getting back his position of GL of earth (by means of dubious ethics), moving back to California, becoming a pilot again, working with Carol Ferris again, etc. All this smack of a man going through a mid-life crisis trying to recapture his past. Considering his actions leading up to and in Zero Hour....For me, Emerald Twilight and Zero Hour were the logical, even necessary outcomes to Hal Jordan's story; this entire GL series was leading up to it. It begins with the last few Green Lantern's at war with the last, now-mad, Guardian in the ruins of Oa, and ends with the last Guardian fleeing the ruins of Oa from the last, now-mad Green Lantern. That's a classical tragedy, that is.Trying to retcon it all away and turn Hal back into a GL and a hero is like trying to write MacBeth 2: Scottish Boogaloo. I just can't ever accept it. And I hold Geoff Johns in contempt for trying it.Saidi
Oh no, I totally agree with that. Emerald Twilight made PERFECT sense. Hal wanted to rebuild the city he wasn't there to save. The Guardians said no, and Hal, for lack of a better term, snapped. And really, who could blame him? Fuck that Parallax noise, because you can't convince me Hal wasn't responsible for his actions becaue a space parasite, that NOBODY knew of at the time possessed him. Kyle Rayner should be the LONE GL today. Period. That's one of the many reasons I've lost all repect for Chairman Johns, because he just shits all over other writers work to push his own agenda forward. He wanted Hal back, BAM, Hal's back because of a space parasite. He wanted Barry Allen back, BAM, Barry's back because in the most asinine thing EVER, Barry wasn't dead but was running THOUGH SPACE for years... That's why I stopped buying ANY comic Johns is connected to. I may have been a fan back in the day, but once you really think about all the damage he's done to the DCU, you realize all he cares about is HIS favorite characters, and he'll go to any leagths to make sure THOSE characters are always in the forefront, no matter HOW bad the story.
