Is this just a new take on Stewart or do we have yet another earth lantern?

He's a completely new GL named Baz, he's Arab American.

Just saying: right now Hal Jordan is kind of our only Lantern on Earth

and issue 12 and the solicits suggest that he might die soon.

With Kyle with the New Guardians and John and Guy off-world (and actually protecting the sector), Earth may need another Lantern.

@Jonny_Anonymous: I wish I could come up with some sort of witty/jokey comeback/explanation for such a situation, but I just can't. This could've been DC's chance to have a foreign GL, adding one more to the group of foreign Lanterns, where Rankorr resides all by his lonesome.

How about a female Saudi Arabian  Green Lantern? Then again Geoff Jones would probably just kill her after five panels like he did The Seer

I didn't mind Kahina's death, mainly because Johns didn't lead us on for a bunch of issues only to kill her off. She was pretty much a plot device. I'd be interested in a Cuban, Chinese, North Korean, French, Scottish, Russian, or Saudi Arabian Green Lantern, or any type of Lantern for that matter. I really don't care what race the next GL is, so long as it's not American, hell, we already have enough Green Lanterns from Earth. I'm sure there are plenty more planets in 2814 with intelligent life.

Its mainstream comics we're talking about, so no way it'll last permenantly if it happens.

But the solicits mention a death of a GL. First I thought it would be John on deathrow, then I thought Guy would take the execution for him, now with issue 12 saying Hal will be the greatest Black Lantern and his MIA status in 0 and 13, I think it'll be Hal.

He's a new character that is called Biaz.

But she was (as far as I could tell) the only Middle Eastern female DC have ever had but instead of trying to make an actual character out of her they humiliate her and kill her off in about five panels

This new GL is clearly not a muslim.

Coming from a huge Kyle/Hal fan i would have liked much more to see Kyle take over for Hal instead of this new guy but ill be keeping an open mind and trust the writers to tell a good story. I just hope the new GL is interesting and creative with his powers...

Also I think the concept for the Third Army's soldiers is dumb.
