If you mean their DCnU versions.. Aquaman, by a landslide. It just seems like Johns has dialed up Hal's douche factor to 100, and he's downright annoying in Justice League.

I would say Green Lantern (Hal)

Wow, a tie?

Hal Jordan, he's my favorite Green Lantern. I've never had any interest in Aquaman...though I've heard he's been redeemed and made pretty awesome in the new 52. I guess my judgment isn't really a fair one >.<

Hal is annoying and a douchebag. Arthur is courageous and likable. So I'd say Aquaman.

Aquaman

#9 Posted by Superdork (917 posts) - - Show Bio

Aquaman pulling ahead...

This would have been unheard of pre-relaunch.

I dunno.. I used to be able to tolerate him pre-reboot, and he didn't bother me that much, and was my 4th favorite GL. But his portrayal in Justice League just turned me off of the character by issue #1.

Aquaman, all day, everyday.

@ZombieBigfoot: He is my tenth favorite GL, below G'nort

He's damn near rock bottom now for me.

Like 'em both, but I like Aquaman a bit more.

#20 Posted by The_Tree (7209 posts) - - Show Bio

I've always liked Hal's personality more, and it still stands for me.

#21 Posted by soccersss (537 posts) - - Show Bio

Aquaman especially now more than ever

Have you been reading him in GL? he's really not so bad there also in JL#5 he took a serious step in the right direction. He's at least tolerable in GL and getting there in JL

I've unfortunately already dropped JL at issue #3 so I can afford Batman, and can't afford GL right now. Wasn't really impressed by the quality of the book, considering it was supposed to be the main Justice League title.

@ZombieBigfoot: Yeah I see the complaint, I like JL for what it is but I understand it when people complain. That aside Hal is an okay character in GL and you kinda see how he got there in JL#5

Dunno. Seemed like Johns was trying too hard to make him seem inexperienced/arrogant, and the result was a major douchebag. My budget was too tight, and given that Darkseid's re-design didn't sit that well with me.. I dropped the book in advance. I do admit that the art was really good, though.

In brightest day, in blackest night, please let Hal win this fight!

Old DCU: Hal.
New DCU: Aquaman.

Wow, well that's pretty cool. Aquaman's book has been pretty awesome from the start. I do enjoy the Green Lantern that's in Justice League over the Green Lantern in his own book.

Aqua man is portrayed as a boasting D bag in the animated series but his actual character is very noble. I choose him over Hal Jordan.

#32 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Aquaman. By far.

Pre new 52, it was definitely Hal. But now that I see what has happened to him I have to go with Aquaman.

#35 Posted by batman_begins (89 posts) - - Show Bio

Arthur for me as well. Valiant, loving, and that trident is an extension of his body now. I like it!
