Born again: Scripps Howard News Service talks with writer Geoff Johns and HEAT (that's Hal's Emerald Advancement Team for the uninitiated) member William Brackeen about the "return" of Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern: Rebirth.

Johns: "We can't just snap our fingers and make some lame story. If we did that then who would care? I had to look at what the smartest and most exciting way to bring him back would be. I had to put him in a place where he can be a hero, and he can be the Green Lantern. ... His whole breakdown seemed pretty random and pretty fast. At the same time, you can't say he didn't do all these things. He did, and you have to go from there."

Brackeen: "We knew if we stuck it out long enough that eventually somebody would be in a position to (restore) him."
