Good review as always.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one who felt something was off about this issue. You essentially put into words what I felt when I read this issue (for the most part).

But the Alley Rat wasn't the only one acting a bit out of character. Hal was as well. He was ready to shoot first and ask questions later (that's Guy, not Hal). Based on his past characterizations with meeting little to unknown characters, Hal has been known to remain cool headed and ask questions first. So, when I read this issue, I was wondering what on earth has gotten into Hal Jordan? Why is he acting so out of character? Meh.

Hopefully issue #20 will be better.

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?
