Does he even exist on the DCAU? Does Guy exist there too?

Well yes and no. Hal does exist in the DCAU but only for one scene. This will help:  
  As for Guy he did appear in an issue of the JLU comic but I'm not sure if those are canon.

They chose John Stewart for a multi racial League, If you notice, Hawkgirl and all the Thanagarians are supposed to have a Latino sort of accent.

Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner were both part of the Corps. they were just working different sectors

@Primmaster64: Yeah I don't remember the issue number but I do remember he fought Darkseid in it and won so at least he was a bad ass in it.

@cattlebattle: I really don't see why they couldn't have had Black Lightning and put in Kyle as the resident GL

Because Black Lightning wasn't a recognizable member of the League, neither was Hawkgirl I know, I actually came to love John Stewart. Phil Lamar did an epic job of voicing him

@cattlebattle: I'm not denying any of that it's just with Kyle we could have seen some constructs other than a force field and force blast

Predominantly GL made blasts and fields, In one of the commentarys Bruce Timm stated he wanted to keep it more practical (why would he make a gun construct when he could just fire a beam) Stewart rarely made other things though. Personally I enjoyed the lack of constructs, I always thought it made GL kind of corny, Like giant fly swatters and whatnot.

@cattlebattle: Still constructs are a staple of the GL mythos and not having a GL make them is just a crime.

I really didn't mind if John was the main GL, but Hal should have appeared there at least in background...well at least Hal is in Young Justice. Kyle never got any justice in DCAU.

Didn't notice that,Though i know the woman who voiced Hawkgirl was Latina,but she didn't have a real accent because i believe she is U.S born.She plays the mom on Wizards of Waverly Place.

I believe her name is Maria.. something..lol

John Stewart was supposed to be Hal Jordan. Hal Jordan wasn't part of the DCAU, his appearance in JLU was in an episode where reality was being warped if memory serves. Kyle Rayner was part of the DCAU, though.

he pretty much got the same treatment as the creeper though slightly better

Is Warhawk really a love child of Stewart and Shiera?

Well, JLU is so far from the truth when it comes to the heros stories and such, I just wasn't sure.

It's quite possible that it was just Hawkgirl who had it, due to being voiced by Maria Canals-Barerra

Everything points to it, and I believe it's outright stated at least once.

Well it is apart of the Animated Universe which pratically has nothing to do with the comics.

All the Hawk people in "starcrossed" were voiced by Hispanic actors/actresses. Bruce Timm confirms their intentions of Hawkpeople having Latino feel of some sort on the commentary of Satrcrossed part 2

He was, he just became a GL off screen.  Kyle was the only GL we actually saw become a Lantern on screen, John and Hal were already Lanterns and in space.

Hal does not exist in DCAU. He only existed in one episode when Chronos or whoever was rewriting reality. John and Kyle are the only human lanterns in DCAU.

Because John Stewart is a cooler character!

#31 Posted by britsera (204 posts) - - Show Bio

I ended up liking John. The default commander when WF were off somewhere. And his love triangle thing was fun (though I would totally sacrifice it to see some quality Bruce-Diana action...;) Still hoping!)

I feel like a saw Guy in the background in the watchtower at some point, or during an attack on oa (I feel like I noticed Kyle there too) ... I could be wrong though. It's been a while since I've seen it, and I wasn't really looking for Guy

Heard about the Latino thing a while ago. Go back and listen to Hro Talak in Starcrossed, especially the scene where he explains things and fight GL. His voice sounds kind of thick and accented, especially when him and GL start talking (GL tends to be very blunt and clear when he speaks). The others birds I didn't notice as much.

Hal isn't cool enough to be in the JLU animated for more then a few minutes

@cattlebattle: I thought I was the only one who notified that. Even if her VA was a Latina, Shayera always struck me as a Latin woman, alien or not.

he exists he's just not active. apparently he's John's retired predecessor, according to Dwayne Mcduffie.

lol Hal couldnt be the main GL because the original JL series started in 2001 when he was still dead, so i think John was the best choice seeing as Kyle's backstory involves the entire GL core being dead and Hal being evil

#36 Posted by Cyclops4ever (40 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal is the best Green Lantern, thats why DC opts to use him in most of their major GL projects, you people that are dissing him are racist big time.

1.Kyle Rayner 
2. Baz and Hal tied 
3. Alan Scott 
4.Guy Gardner 
5. John "Smelly" Stewart (thats right, i went there!)

#38 Posted by BlackWind (5345 posts) - - Show Bio

John was(and still is) the most unknown human GL, giving the writers some freedoms with him. John adding diversity to the team was just icing on the cake.
