Perhaps Hal is evolving into a new form of Guardian?

Or perhaps thanks to the gauntlet Hal is now hosting a new version of ION?

If Hal is truly made of willpower, I would think his powers and abilities would be about the same as

1. Alan Scott in his SENTINEL form

2. Kyle when he was ION

However Hal's thinking tends to be a bit....linear, to say the least.

When he was stuck with the blue ring on his finger, he kept trying to sincerely hope for something grand like world peace to activate the blue ring, only to turn out that his sincere hope was the blue ring would stop nagging him.

When he put on all the yellow rings and charged them in the Sinestro Corp War due to his green ring being drained, he was using the power and felt that he understood the power of fear until Sinestro easily schooled him.

So his tendency to be straightforward and linear in his thinking and his desire to be a GL may be blocking him from using his full power as a being of will.

Perhaps, but you forgot something. Hal hasn't even tried using any potential new power that he has other than create a ring. Aside from that, everything he's done so far is with that ring as he hasn't bothered to explore what he can or cannot do. And therein lies the problem.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
