I guess Geoff Johns doesn't really care about Hal Jordan

Okay, this is getting ridiculous enough already. In this Newsarama item, it's reported that:
This week's issue of Green Lantern offered a pretty big surprise for fans of the franchise.

After years of villainy and dirty deeds against the Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro has been given a green power ring and will now replace Hal Jordan as a member of the Corps.[...]

As DC works to launch the new title and attract new readers, the 'DCnU' will feature one less icon in the form of a de-commissioned Hal Jordan, with Sinestro serving in the title role.
What? After all the problems Sinestro's caused in past decades? Obviously a publicity stunt that only makes it more worthless. This is even dumber than bringing back Barry Allen as the Flash all at Wally West's expense. Are the rest of the Corp members who've also been furious at Sinestro's dirty deeds going to go along with this too, or will they quit? It really doesn't matter, because now, it's clear that in some form or other, DC is following up on Marvel's own stunts with Norman Osborn, to name but one villain who was put in an inappropriate position.

It also puts Geoff Johns' fandom for the GL's world further under a question mark, and is another telling clue to how undedicated he really is.

What's next? Making the Kingpin the mayor of New York City?

Hell, that will probably be next.

They had Normie magically come back to life after being impaled and becoming President or whatever and made Reed Richards and Iron Man into evil political stooges. I figure they're capable of anything.

And then there's Robobucky...oh man.
