    Well Hal was one with the spectrum for awhile and crafted his own ring so his will power and link to the emerald power should be better then Kyle.

There is no should be, Hal's willpower "is" better than the Alley Rat's. Ganthet said in an early issue of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps that Hal has the strongest of wills and his connection to the green light is stronger than anyone's (and the Alley Rat was standing right there in front of him when Ganthet said that, too).

    However I think switching Kyle from white back to Green was not the best of ideas.

Since the Alley Rat no longer runs his own comic and is part of a team book now, it was the only way to go. Otherwise, the Alley Rat, at that kind of power level, could conceivably solve every problem without the need of the GLC. Going back to green was the only way to go and I, for one, couldn't be happier.

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?
