** But a real [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale sense of scale]] contradicts the above with the simple number of galaxies theorized by real life scientists in the universe at one thousand billion galaxies. Each Green Lantern would have a mere 'beat' of only two-hundred-and-seventy-seven millions galaxies to patrol by themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBi: When setting up her profile on a superhero dating app, she lingered over the question "are you interested in men, women, or both?" She has repeatedly shown an attraction to men (and while her answer to the app's question is left unseen, she ''does'' get matched with Simon)


Added DiffLines:

** With Simon Baz, as well. In the arc about a dating app, she came back with a 93% match for her own partner. (She doesn't tell him, and briefly comments that she's not going to consider risking their friendship)

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Even going back to the Pre-Flashpoint continuity, Ganthet was always this. The retcons that have taken place over the years have only increased this status for him. He was the only Guardian who originally acknowledged that getting rid of their emotions might be a bad idea, the first of the Guardians afterwards to take a name for himself, beginning the expression of individuality that allowed him to reconnect with his emotions, the only Guardian to acknowledge the successes of the Green Lanterns stationed on Earth, the only Guardian trust said Green Lanterns with the secrets of the Guardians past mistakes, as seen in ''Ganthet's Tale'', the only Guardian who acknowledged that Hal Jordan's fall back in ''Emerald Twilight'' was partially due to the Guardian's own negligence, and, along with Sayd, is the only Guardian willing to take the prophecy of the "Blackest Night" seriously.

* CharacterShilling: Other characters frequently declared Hal the greatest Green Lantern of all time - an impressive claim for an organization that has thousands of members at a time and has been in existence for ''three billion years''. In actuality, while Hal was generally good at his job, he frequently got knocked around by foes nowhere near his league, and was infamously unimaginative, tending to default to giant boxing gloves. This was generally avoided when he returned, with writer GeoffJohns being careful to give all the human Lanterns moments in the sun, and requiring Hal to earn other people's respect, but occasionally someone like Batman will still revert to uncharacteristic gushing. Played straight later in Johns' run, when Hal was once again specifically called the Greatest Green Lantern. However, it should be noted that Hal does have the feats to back it up and it can hardly be argued to be considered a hollow statement.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Hal was brash and cocky at first, nearly two decades on he's clearly mellowed out and usually takes the role of TeamDad to the other Lanterns. He's still prone to reckless acts of heroism, however. In the '70s and '80s, Hal had a tendency to constantly question himself, quit the Corps at least once, and was at times a self-hating wreck. This came to a head with ''Emerald Dawn''. GeoffJohns explained this away as Parallax's influence and eventually {{Retcon}}ned ''Emerald Dawn'' out of existence.

** GeoffJohns has commented that despite the actual sequence of events, he considers Kyle to be as chosen for the Corps as any other Lantern. ''New Guardians'' later puts forth that Ganthet perhaps ''did'' sense something special about him when giving him the ring.

* AscendedExtra: Initially, he was just Jordan's backup Lantern, then took over the title for a few years when Jordan's resignation had him called to regular duty and got his own series for a while until the Corps was largely depowered and disbanded. Twenty years later with the Corps restored, he is Jordan's regular duty partner for their space sector. He was also the most recognizable Lantern in real life for a time, due to the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series leading many a viewer to associate John with the Lantern mantle.
