Wasn't Guy Gardener supposed to be Hal's first successor? Did something happen to him here to disqualify him from Green Lanternship?

Always wanted to read some John, though. Never got a good handle on him as a Lantern.

Wasn't it because Guy got brain damage or was otherwise made invalid for a while?

Guy was a gym teacher for special needs kids (really), an earthquake left a bus full about to go over a cliff. With no powers guy saved them, but while saving the last one, well, lets just say the bus landed on him. He lived, but was bed ridden (and eventually ended up comatose).

The guardians seeing Hal's backup was no longer fit for service found a new successor, John Stewart. Until a renegade Guardian forced Guy out of his coma to be his personal GL (thus causing Guy's initial 'brain damage')

"Guy was a gym teacher for special needs kids (really)"

Ahahaha. I didn't know that. Oh man that's good.

Wasn't he also a lawyer at some point? As I recall, 'Emerald Dawn 2' starts with Hal in jail and Guy as his court-appointed defender.

Not a lawyer he was a social worker (Yes, bad ass 'bad boy' of the Green Lanterns was a social worker). Later he gave up that line of work and became a physical education teacher for special needs kids.

Guy is a jerk, but he's a jerk with a heart of pure gold. If you're the the 'little guy' he will break his back trying to help you.

That DOES make more sense - I had a little difficulty picturing Guy as a lawyer. 'Let's cut the crap, yer honor - my client is innocent, and I got a great big green boxing glove in front of your face to prove it. Now say he's free to go, or prepare to count yer fillings!'
