    So was it a long shot plan of theirs?

So you're suggesting the Guardians allowed themselves to be killed and the Corps to be disbanded just they could be reborn and the Corps reassembled? It seems like an awful risk to take, hoping that Hal, Kyle, Ion, Nero, the Sun-Eater, Kilowog, Marty Jordan, Jade, all of those elements would play out exactly as needed for their rebirth without any of them knowing they are participants in the plan. Was Hal's involvement in Zero Hour part of the plan?

What is the net gain? Removing Parallax and the yellow impurity from the CPB? In Rebirth lore the CPB was only created in the first place to jail Parallax so letting him escape was probably not part of the plan. More likely Parallax influenced the Guardians to that end. What else did the Guardians gain from these events? They now have two genders. Maybe now they don't have to rely on the Zamorans for procreation. That seems like a change they could have engineered without risking their own deaths.

It's fun to try to make sense of it all, but there seem to be a lot of retcons working against each other.
