    1)So we have a major revelation - the Ultraviolet light - happening in Justice League, not even in a Green Lantern book. Not sure that I like that, something that big should be in a Green Lantern book.

It shouldn't be in any book because it should never have been created in the first place. We have too many "colors", we don't need a hidden color corps on top of it.

    2)Green Lanterns 50 has a note that this story happens after Hal Jordan/Greeen Lantern Corps 50. But Hal Jordan just had 47 come out, so we still have three more issues until then. That makes that story a little anti-climactic since we see all the main characters (other than Hal, but they just say they can't reach him).

Yeah, I don't understand the logic either.

    They probably are in a weird spot with Venditti ending his run and Jurgens starting his, but couldn't they time it a little different so that we don't have one story starting after a story that still has 3 issues left to tell?

It wouldn't be that hard.

    And where is the Ultraviolet story in Justice League placed in time compared to the two Green Lantern stories? Is this even later, as the "Leader" of the Green Lanterns shouldn't have time to run around with the Justice League, so if John is there he shouldn't be "leader" any more. Didn't read Justice League 1 or 2 so I don't know if that was addressed there or not.

Hard to say, really. The time placement is murky here.

    There is a lot going on here with most likely a reboot of the Green Lantern books coming up too, it doesn't seem very well planned out at all.

Agreed. But a reboot of the GL books is happening. Hal Jordan and the GLC is being cancelled at issue 50, but based on interviews, DC has plans for these books later on down the road. Green Lanterns, it seems, will still be an ongoing series. I do expect a new GLC title to come later down the road at some point before the end of 2018.

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?
