    John Stewart has been remade into an interesting character multiple times. He was originally written as a very wishy-washy (a trait he shared with Hal) architect. But the problem with him is that he will disappear for decades and then be reinvented into something cool. He was invented, Hal came back and then he disappeared until Crisis. Mosaic was a great story that ended with a fizzle. The JLU version introduced the soldierly Stewart that was potentially the most interesting version.

    In fact, I’d say none of these characters (save Simon Baz, who’s brand new) have been particularly consistent in their character traits. However, Hal, when he’s done well, is done very well. Some of the greatest Hal Jordan stories are some of the greatest stories in comics.

    The only Spectre run I ever read was from the 90s by John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake. A must read for all conspiracy theorist. Well told stories with what I would describe as eerie art, which fits the theme of the title.
