Hal: What about me? Scorbort?
Dirk: I told you to never show your face around here again.

Possible unpopular opinion: I like Hal Jordan not having kids.
Maybe it's just me projecting because I don't want kids myself. He's good with kids, there's no doubt about that, but I can't see him having kids of his own.
Like all superheroes, his life is dangerous and there's a chance he won't come home some day. However, for Hal, the risk is doubled because not only is his Green Lantern gig dangerous, his day job is dangerous too. And he's very aware of this, because it's the reason his own dad didn't come home one day. He knows what that feels like, and wouldn't want to put a kid/kids through that. His brothers lost their dad too, but unlike Hal they have normal, safe jobs, so that worry isn't as present for them. Hal has died before and should have died ten times over.
Another reason, due to the nature of being a Green Lantern, he can be away from earth for months on end, possibly not being able to make contact with home for all that time. If he wanted to be present in a kid's life, he'd have to quit being a GL, which he isn't going to do.
And probably the biggest reason: Hal can barely take care of himself. I know he looked after Helen during his time as the Spectre, but she was already about eight (?) and he had a good deal of magical help.
But Hal as The Fun Uncle? Fantastic. And we have plenty of canon evidence to back that up.
He adores his nieces and nephews (of which there are many) and they adore him. They all seem to be aware of his life as a GL, and they understand that he needs to spend a lot of time away, but his absence doesn't have any negative effects on their lives. He can show up once every six months, take them out for ice cream and bring them back cool space rocks, and they'll only like him more for it. If something happens to him they'll be devastated, of course, but losing an uncle isn't as bad as losing a father.
I just think it's nice to have a character like Hal who doesn't have children, because children are just not for everyone. You don't have to tick off kids and marriage on life's checklist. There's plenty of dads in dc already.

dirk could make hal into an nft...
Timothée plus music? Yes, please! I can’t wait to see Timmy as Bob Dylan.
I think I finally understood why batman and green lantern are always at odds even when they are so similar in nearly everything that actually matters to them. they respect and understand each other, in ways that no one else but only the other can, but there is a specific lack of trust between them that is always put them at crossroads.
Like, Bruce has such a strong relationship to Dick, and Dick and Hal bears such a strong resemblance, so why does Bruce has two different relationships with them despite having the upmost respect for them and persistently thinking that they are essentially "the best of them"/ "a light to his dark".
It's because Bruce doesn't trust Hal not to go and kill himself recklessly for the sake of saving others. For Bruce, he is always planning first with contingencies plans, and as a result, he sees Hal's lack of prior planning as reckless when really, Hal is just quick planner on his feet. Hal doesn't have Dick's upbringing with Bruce, who had probably made sure that Dick had plans after plans for every possible situations. Bruce knows that Dick doesn't plan on immediately dying to save people, at least, not initally.
Hal, on the other hand, thinks Bruce doesn't trust him. He's right for both the wrong and right reasons. Hal is really to die for a cause, something Bruce understand because he is the same, but Hal also doesn't have any intentions to die and will not unless there are no other choice, but Bruce refuse to accept or understand that (even if he is completely the same in that manner). Hal thinks Bruce doesn't trust him because he is lacking (or something, but I haven't thought of anything about it deeply) and Bruce thinks Hal is too willing, too quick, to put his life on the line for others.
thinking about Hal’s hair going gray early on because of the amount of stress he’s under, and how stress lowers all your defenses making you more vulnerable, and how, going the alien parasite route, Parallax was able to take over Hal with ease, because there were no defenses to tear down, thinking about Hal feeling like he has no support system and he’s trying his best but it’s not enough, not on his own, thinking of how he feels left alone and borderline betrayed by the hero community, how he’s disappointed and disillusioned and brokenhearted and just thinking about Hal, in general, as one does
same spectre mate
Blackest Night #2
So I was re-reading the Green Lantern vol 2 #55 for meta purposes but um I was side tracked cause they
they really did the sexy woman pose to Hal. This is so fucking funny look at him. Cause the context here is how Hal went crazy and killed the Corps but yeah this is a booty ass look for him.
I could tell you were in there with me somewhere. We pushed our way through together.
me when hal dies
Barry: Hey Hal. Wally and I made friendship bracelets earlier and I made you one to match mine.
Hal: What are we, ten?
Barry rolling his eyes: if you don’t want it I’ll just-
Hal snatching it out of his hands: Of course I want it.
Halcyon, half-wailing in despair, with tears in his eyes, thinking about how he nearly hurt Abhor in order to protect him and keep him safe: Abhor, I think I'm starting to hate you, even though we've been best friends for 22 years! And I don't want to hate yoouuu! *cries*
Abhor: you are just worried about my safety, you fucking idiot.
Halcyon: *astonished pikachu face* oh.
Bruce: what a stupid test Google suggests me! "What Disney princess would you be?"
Hal: Cinderella. She's beautiful and broke, just like me. Which reminds me, can I borrow 20 dollars?
Bruce: what..? No!
Hal: typical, I knew I had to ask Ollie
Bruce: I know what you are doing
Hal: I'm not doing anything
Hal: *takes phone*
Bruce: ok, ok! Here!
Bruce: *gives Hal 50 dollars*
Barry: they still haven't realized they both give you money every week?
Hal: world's greatest detective my ass!
3 more Rafale jets arrive
3 more Rafale jets arrive The sixth batch of three Rafale fighter jets arrived in India on Wednesday. With this, the IAF has received 20 of the 36 jets contracted from France. Last month, during a five-day visit to France, IAF chief Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria flagged off the fifth batch of three jets from the Merignac air base. The fifth ferry marked the end of training of the third batch…
