    Of course, any time a comic company tries to update a character in response to fans complaints that the character is too powerful and unrelatable, fans cry murder and start a campaign to bring the "true" version of the character back.

    Comic fans can be quite insane at times.
    funny enough, going by this Where I Read of Green Lantern, back in the day it wasn't so much the power that was the problem as Hal's personality, as he'd see regular revamps of his civilian life and supporting cast, most notably when Dennis O'Neil would replace his self-direction with constant self-doubt during the "Hard Travelling heroes" era of the late 60's/early 70's, and after that, no two writers could ever agree on how to write him until the 00's.

    Iropnically while Hal would careen like this for decades, the other Lanterns would quickly settle into established character patterns

    John Stewart - starts as angry black man, but grows into the responsible, serious one

    Guy Gardner - originally "hal with red hair", Guy would be revamped in the 80's to be the loud, boisterous hotheaded arrogant jerk that would play off spectacularly in the ensemble cast of Justice League International. various attempts to flesh out hal would see Guy's edge's smoothed out that for all his attitude, he had hidden depths as well when under a good writer

    Kyle Rayner - mere mortal tossed into the deep end of cosmic stuff and having to live up to the legacy of those before him

    and to go back to hal, the version that's actually stuck best with me is his portrayal in Green Lantern: the animated series, where it was obvious that the writers were working from Captain Kirk
