Does anyone else think it is stupid that Superman can be beaten by a bunch of rocks?
Man of steel, my ass.
You ever been hit by a rock? It HURTS, man.
But seriously, it's not about the rock. It's about the energy they put out. Y'know that great big firey ball of sun up in the sky? That can give you cancer. Just because it feels or looks harmless does not by any means make it so. Here's a visual aid.

stupider that the colour yellow mucks up the Green Lantern
Or that Alan Scott's ring had no effect on wood. I mean come on what kind of weakness is being able to not affect wood?
obviously he had a weakness to wood. you know why. *chuckles.
Also, the colour yellow weakness got retconned out already.
@Lvenger: lol. yeah, that weakness was really silly. I particularly like how it got retconned out, being that Parallax is being imprisoned in OA central battery that causes weakness against yellow impurity. Very creative indeed.
@Lvenger: exactly. not sure if you feel the same, but IMO, I think Kyle and Hal are the 2 green lanterns that are being developed the most over the past 2 decades. By that I mean, most character development, supporting characters, love interest and enemies.
Hal more than Kyle. While Guy and John got the least development.
@sethysquare: True but John has had his comic book moments too. His romance with Katma Tui, the destruction of Xanshi, becoming a Guardian of the Universe. And recently he's had to kill both Mogo and other Green Lanterns highlighting his more ruthless willingness to do what needs to be done. But yeah he does need a love interest to spice things up. Maybe he'll get one after War of the Green Lanterns?
@Lvenger: Katma Tui and Xanshi was so long ago. Almost 3 decades ago. Which is why I always joked around that John did nothing much in the comics except kill people and planets. I really dont see how killing mojo or that gl added anything to his character development. Kyle on the other hand had relationships after relationships and you see lots of his thoughts about them. John was just the resident goofball which i was pretty entertained by. The fact is for me, John is just a very serious and rigid character. He was like that in the comics and in the tv show as well. But at least he had something going on for him in jlu, his relationship with hawkgirl.
@sethysquare: Fair points. Personally I wanted to see John and Hawkgirl in an actual relationship for longer than two episodes. Then again no indication is given of how much time transpired between Wild Cards and Starcrossed so a fair bit of time could have been said to have passed.
@Lvenger: If you ask me, I think hawk couple is done to death. The whole reincarnation thing just has too much baggage. But at the same time I don't really ship John with Shayera also. I guess I'm just waiting for new relationship to form for all 3 parties.
The current love interest with Hawkman seems fun enough, but I don't know if it will stick. I'm intrigued by the girl on the cover of the latest solicitations for TSH.
