*Spoilers in this*
Ok at first I was really looking forward to this series, I am a big GL fan and was excited about a new big GL event happening . However now at issue #4 I am kinda disapointed in this series. Now the first issue as always is a lame build up mystery issue, its ok I expect these . But once they get into it you find out that Parallax is actually a soul parasite type thing . I hate this , I really liked that Hal Jordan went nuts turned into a super rough villain and finally started utizilizing the full potential of the GL powers, I liked it because he chose to or thats the way it seemed . Now after reading this it turns out to be some ancient evil possesed him and made him do it so in reality hes not a bad guy . LAME LAME LAME .
The GL series has been lacking for a while now and I was hoping something cool would happen in this , but no. I think the writers with GL have the same problem they have with Superman, its that the character is ultra rough and has all this power yet seemingly never use it , or have struggles with the most miniscule of things. Now Sinestro coming back to life? Am I surprised? NO . Am I mad? NO its ok, this happens in comics enough I wont fault them for doing it. Since he is like the only villain that can stand up to a GL. I was hoping for something along the lines of the old GL corps book days that were sci fi campy and culty and just out there, I loved those . But this is not that, and another thing that sucks about it is the original event that brought Kyle Rayner into the GL world and turned Hal evil was a great event and series! Its a shame they would blemish some of the real solid good stuff these characters have ever had. I just hope the new series that launch from this are good .
