I have never denied that fact that Kyle Rayner is my least favorite Green Lantern. Ever. Born out of the masturbatory fantasies of Ron Marz who destroyed one of DC Comic’s oldest heroes to write himself into the storyline, Kyle has been a problem for me ever since his first appearance (where he was given a power ring because a Guardian couldn’t bother to find someone actually worthy and handed the most powerful weapon in the universe over to the first person he came across). I explain this not to attack the character, who I find tolerable at the best of times, but to offer an explanation while a Kyle-centric issue is never going to be a favorite of mine.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #16 is a headscratcher. While it certainly delivers Guy Gardner being Guy for his fans, the entire issue is little more than filler. Having rescued Saint Walker, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner return to Mogo only to find John Stewart and Guy gone. This leaves their story to wilt on the vine while the comic looks elsewhere for plot.

Leaving John Stewart to work out the logistics of how to get the Green Lantern Corps to work with the Sinestro Corps going forward by pairing Lanterns up and sending them after missing members of the Sinestro Corps, Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner head out on a mission of their own.

“Bottled Light” comes to a close with Hal Jordan (yah!) and Kyle Rayner (ugh!) showing up in time to help the freed Green Lantern Corps and Sinestro Corps fight their jailers Larfleeze and Brainiac. The arc finale has plenty of action as well as some shock for Guy Gardner and the gang at the arrival of their old friends.

You just can’t keep a good man down. Hal Jordan‘s latest death doesn’t stop the Green Lantern for long (even if his return does mean an appearance by my least-favorite Green Lantern). With the help of Kyle Rayner, the pair of remaining Guardians of the Universe help Hal find his way home and out of the Emerald Space where he’s greeted by long-lost friends such as Tomar-Re and Katma Tui.

The Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps‘ attempt to save the planet of from an attack on Starro leaves the group in a precarious position.

Even after working together to stop Starro, the Lanterns have an entirely new set of problems to deal with.

With the unstable Frank Laminski now in control of the Phantom Ring, it falls to Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz to take down the would-be hero. The task is doing so is complicated by Laminski actually performing some very public heroic duties, including saving a young girl’s life. Caught on camera, the two assigned Green Lanterns for Sector 2814 struggle to explain the situation (although Laminski’s unstable personality eventually gets them out of the jam).

The conclusion of the series’ opening arc “Sinestro’s Law” pits student against teacher one more time. While Hal Jordan sends Soranik on a mission to deal with the Fear Engine and release those captured and tortured to feed Sinestro‘s power, Hal takes a stand against Sinestro one more time. Hal Jordan’s metamorphosis into something… other began during the New 52. While the comic suggests Hal gives his life to stop Sinestro’s reign of fear, the series’ title and the constant foreshadowing of something more in Jordan’s future makes me believe this isn’t the last we’ve heard from him.

Losing a renegade Guardian of the Universe on Halloween night he has in his possession a power ring anyone is capable enough to command isn’t the best way to start the holiday for Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz. And if that wasn’t enough, Earth’s two rookie Green Lanterns aren’t the only ones on the lookout for Guardian Rami and the Phantom Ring.

While John Stewart leads the Green Lantern Corps out of hiding and back into the universe, where they learn about the Sinestro Corps takeover, and Guy Gardner gets intimately acquainted with Sinestro‘s Fear Engine, the series’ focus shifts back to Hal Jordan. After explaining the steps Soranik took to save Hal’s life, the two sit down to catch up allowing the Green Lantern to heal and learn just what Sinestro has been up to in Hal’s absence.
