- Mis-blamed: Ron Marz was accused of single-handedly destroying the old Green Lantern mythos, but the story and outcome was DC's idea, and Marz was merely tasked with writing it.
- Narm: The cover with Hal wearing ten rings in each of his hands with a manic grin. It honestly crosses into So Bad, It's Good territory - one can't help but think of Hal saying "Look at all this BLING!"
- Vindicated by History:
- After 25 years, most of the controversy surrounding the storyline has died down, and it's now considered one of the best Green Lantern storylines ever made just for the sheer amounts of HSQ present.
- There is also a somewhat vocal minority of Green Lantern fans that later (primarily following his resurrection) started to agree with DC's reasoning for making the story (Hal Jordan was boring and needed to be replaced) and that his time as Parallax was actually the only time his character had something going for him.
