What I hope people take from it is that you can tell slightly more low-key adventures. I think it becomes an arms race that’s unwinnable to continue to keep topping everyone’s world-ending scenario. It can be fun, but I think we’ve all done it for so long now that it becomes yet another trope. So the idea was to just take it back to the everyday. And you don’t have to worry about the end of the universe, you just have to worry about telling a decent story. You know, having some good characters and things that get raised and then resolved. And little subplots. It seems to make it easier, and I think it also makes it more universal, storytelling-wise, when it’s not about gigantic crises. It’s about stories we understand but are not necessarily on an epic scale. -- Grant Morrison

You know, what I’m trying to get at with the thing we’re both interested in, “What laws do the Green Lanterns actually enforce?” I don’t know if it’s ever been said, and obviously, I’ve just done a story where there’s a planet where murder is not a crime, it’s a social duty. Because it’s how each generation replaces the next one in the ecology. So there’s things like that, but, for me, it’s much more interesting: “What of it? What are the laws of the universe?” There’s laws of gravity, laws of thermodynamics, and if you start to understand that, do the Guardians apply? It’s not like local police laws, so, again, it’s the most interesting question in the whole series, and the one I’ve been having the most fun trying to dig down. -- Grant Morrison

He’s died, he’s come back to life, he’s been the Spectre. He’s seen everything. So, I think one of the important things is that he’s not traumatized. Right now, there’s a vogue for sort of post-traumatic superheroes, but I just think that is not Hal Jordan. This is a guy that does not need therapy. He’s so far beyond therapy. It ain’t going to work. This is a guy who’s super directed. He gets the job done. He’s really good at what he does. -- Grant Morrison

One of the things I love about the DC Universe is that they do have this history and they do have this depth and span and scope in the outline of human life. It’s kind of like environmental art. You’re going into a place. I love the fact that there are thousands of alien races out there that have maybe been seen in one issue of WORLD’S FINEST in 1970, or some bunch of characters that have only ever been seen in some 1990s comic book, and consolidating all that to say, "Oh, that happened and they’re all still here, and they all still have their own agendas, and they’re all out working and doing things in the universe," and we get to suddenly see them. -- Grant Morrison

GREEN LANTERN EMERALD DAWN #1 was the start of the origin for the Post-Crisis Hal Jordan. It had Hal serving 90 days on a drunk driving charge, and also established a lot of the "Hal Jordan: Screw-up!" characterization that was very common for a while. Still is, in some ways.

Instead of the big, epic, 12-part stories, we’re focusing down on the everyday life of a space cop. Basically, it’s no more apocalypse-ending storylines. The basic concept is that [Hal Jordan] is like a space cop that patrols a sector of the universe where anything can happen. We’ve made it more like a police procedural. -- Grant Morrison

We accidentally blackballed this issue before covering the Batman/Green Lanterns arc, so let's go into it now as an example of how Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz could work, TV-wise.

"It is, therefore, not inconceivable that this planet was in fact Mogo, becoming a Green Lantern after meeting Hal. When asked about the origins of creating Mogo, and if the two character planets could be one and the same, artist Dave Gibbons stated that he was certainly aware of the 1963 story, but did not recall it being an influence back when he co-created Mogo with Alan Moore in May 1985 (GL V2 #188)."

Tumblr insisted that pairing Hal Jordan and a planet like Mogo was ridiculous. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Challenge accepted.
