Title: Kyle Rayner Green Lantern
Post by: Commander on December 03, 2017, 11:42:13 PM
For any Kyle Rayner readers here, does anyone remember the issue where Ganthet said that he did not accidentally choose Kyle (as Kyle thought all along he was just a GL by chance). Ganthet (or someone that I can't recall) told Kyle that the ring specifically chose him among all the multitude of lifeforms on the universe to become the lone GL that time....

Does this help? Fucking GL comics are confusing.

Yeah, I feel like DC just likes to give a big ol; middle finger to those of us who cut their teeth on DC in the 90's/2000's. Wally was gone for years and has come back to mediocrity (and hasn't been relevant since Barry returned). Kyle is treated like a joke ever since Rebirth (and hasn't been relevant since Hal returned). Tim Drake is MIA. Superboy is gone or changed beyond recognition or whatever. I'm not even sure what happened to the rest of Young Justice/the 2000's Teen Titans (is Cassie still around anywhere? Is Bart still just dead?). Is the JSA still a thing at all? I NEVER hear about them anymore.

I really like DC, and yet I also don't particularly care for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hal, and Barry. I feel like there's nothing for me there anymore.

I think what bothers me the most about Barry....just look at the tv shows and the Justice League movie. They give him Wally West's personality. And I've read articles that they put Wally West on covers to boost sells.  Why can't just have Wally West as The Flash?!

But yeah, I haven't read a DC comic in a long time because they pretty much made it crystal clear that they don't want my generation.

There is actually a part of me that hopes Bendis like Wally, Kyle, Cassandra Caine and wants to write them. I mean, he'd probably be horrible but at least they'd be out and about again.

But the larger part of me wants Bendis and Geoff Johns to drive each other insane and fight to the death for all they have done to me and my favorite characters. :)

Tim isn't MIA. He's actually the center for the current Detective Comics arc. As for Conner, Cassie, etc, they will also be featured in the current arc, which deals with the Titans of Tomorrow. Their absence is tied into the 5 missing years that Manhattan apparently stole.

JSA is coming back in their classic forms, too.

Yeah They are using Tim as a lynchpin to add back in a lot of the YJ/Teen Titans stuff back into the continuity. They even gave him back his classic origin already.

They really did fuck over Kyle though.

They did have Kyle hook up with Carol which is pretty funny.

Omega Men did him some justice too. He spent a decent amount of time beating on super human aliens without any powers.

Kyle the reason why I started reading DC regularly. I get swept up in DoS which lead me into Hal's fall and right into Kyle. From there I got into Wally and Connor Hawke and it just spiraled.

Dear god, tell me it doesn't involve the multiverse in some way. That always makes DC worse when they go into the multiverse stuff.

At the beginning of new 52 they had a different Earth with alt versions of the JSA on it but in the recent return of Strawberry Wally West they revealed Johnny Thunder was in an old folks home ranting everyone forgot about them or something so they do still exist but whoever is behind Doomsday Clock (probably Mr Manhattan) fucked with the timeline and made everyone forget about them.

Yeah i knew anout the alt earth shit, but the rest is new info. Hopefully this foreshadows a return and an ass whipping bia T-Bolt for Dr. Manhattan.
But i'd actually like that, so probably not.

Just wondering, since we're talking old universe, am I the only one who hates Harley's new skank clown costume?

I dont hate it.
I would like to have seen the original costume worn, if only briefly, in the SS movie though.

I'm a big fan of original Harley, but I haven't really hated any of her costumes. I'd like to see a return to the basics, though.

I did not like the red and blue one but the current black and red that's a combo of classic and new I like.
