Fair enough - I'll grant you that I haven't been reading Green Lantern, so I can't really comment on how these new groups work. Maybe they work very well; I wouldn't know. I just find the concept needlessly complicated - I mean, Green Lanterns by themselves are pretty easy to understand; they're space cops with power rings. But now there's six or seven OTHER varieties of space cops with power rings, and the casual reader (like me) is likely to get awfully confused. Also, you just KNOW that, if these guys stick around, every writer looking to add his own spin on things is going to add a new variety of Lanterns until the DCU is swamped with Lanterns of every imaginable color, and you'll need a freakin' guidebook to tell them apart. I mean, what's next? The Chartreuse Lanterns? The Puce Lanterns? The Ultraviolet Lanterns? The Burnt Umber Lanterns? It's only a matter of time, I tell ya.
