From the Emerald City Comic Con DC panel:

The first question jumped into the recent controversy over the death of Lian Harper, the young daughter of Speedy who was recently killed in "Cry for Justice," when a female fan expressed her displeasure with the "fridging" of the character:

James Robinson: "That decision [was] a controversial and one that I know has been greeted with some displeasure by some people... I'm sorry if it upset people. In all honesty, they wanted to kill Speedy too, and I said no, so give me some credit for that."

Ian Sattler: "I'm happy it upset people because it means that the story had some weight and emotion."

WTF.

Geoff Johns on the possibility of a "Green Lantern" animated series: "There's a very, very good chance. But maybe."

Y'know, that's actually not a bad idea at all (assuming it's about the whole corps and not just Hal Jordan). The whole Green Lantern Corps idea is pretty cool but I could never quite understand the whole convoluted backstory. A fresh new cartoon could make something good out of it. But I'd also like a Wondy cartoon.

The problem would be it'd be like the Legion of Superheroes...if they all had exactly the same power.

How about an animated Mogo series, then?

Mogo could have a secret identity! I could see 'him' floating around wearing a very large pair of glasses.

"I'm not Mogo, I'm Clark Kuiper, mild mannered planetoid for the Daily Planet?"

Man, I remember reading lettercols from the first time they did a Green Lantern Corps book and everyone was saying "This is a completely unworkable team book, everyone has the same powers!"

They addressed this problem by giving the characters different personalities instead of relying on their powers to define them.

I remember that too, but we're not talking about a comic here, we're talking about 22min action adventure cartoon, I'm not sure it would work as well like that. I don't think the GLC has worked particularly well in any cartoon iteration I can think of, they look awesome, but as a team, they're very repetitive.
