Some interesting quotes from the article:

"A distraught Kyle Rayner has emerged one year later, transformed with abilities that may surpass those of any Green Lantern ever. So beware his power, because his might may not be on the side of right."

Eddie's editing Infinite Crisis, so I think it's fair to say he's pretty used to coordinating between offices. I should also point out that Peter was the editor on my last Green Lantern arc, so we've worked together as well. It's not going to be a problem to coordinate between Ion and the other two Green Lantern books.
ddf
As far as I'm concerned, he's still an official Green Lantern. When everything's sorted out, he might even be considered more than an official Green Lantern.

Cool interview. Really looking foward to this series. Man, between this series and the other two GL ones this truly is the best time ever to be a GL fan. Great stuff. Can't wait to see what Ron has in store for us.

Heres hoping some of the OYL titles will suck because my wallet can't deal with much more of this. lol.

SPECULATION:
SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Who dies and grants their power to Kyle? All clues point to Captain Comet, but would they be so audacious to kill Alan Scott? That would truly be a stunner! And come one, it's been a while since a GL has died. What's a crisis without a few dead GLs?

Think Kyle may end up getting the powers of Gaurdian?

Actually, the solicit about a distraught Kyle got me to thinking, too. I don't think Captain Comet dying would make Kyle distraught, even though he'd be upset. Plus I don't think DC has dusted him off just to die, and further, how would his death help power up Kyle? As far as Alan, I think it's pretty clear from the March solicits that he's not going to kick it. However, there's one other person on the space mission whose death would really tear Kyle up and whose powers are tied closely enough to the GL legacy that they might power him up. In addition, there is a noticeable absence from the silhouettes on the Outsiders solicit.

Oh yeah, I forgot my comments on the cover. The better clarity makes it a lot better looking. Did you notice that John is in the lower left, and Guy is in the lower right? I thought that one star in the lower right looked like a ring all along, but could only tell it was Guy's with the better copy.

First of all, this version of the ION cover looks so much better than the one released yesterday. The colours match up better and you can make out much more details.


And the interview itself is quite a nice tease, but it looks like Kyle won't be ION before OYL and evolving into ION during the first storyarc? And the teases certainly lead to the conclusion that somehow the powers he posses will be within him and not from an external source and that Kyle spends 52 on Earth?

My guess is that Kyle is given Captain Comet's telepathy and he struggles to use it in that he keeps making judgements off the thoughts he hears of others. I think it would kinda be like giving Kyle the sparknotes to every situation, sure they might get you though a quiz but a serious test will be alot of trouble. It would be just enough power to make it questionable whether or not he is more powerful then a regular GL and just enough to get him into serious trouble but not enough to make him too god like, and it would harken back to Ion 1 and how he learned how to read minds.

Agreed!

I'm still iffy on the mask or energy covering up the face there, but it doesn't deter any of my interest in the story.

Isn't this overkill on Green Lantern titles?

that's what i was getting at mentioning the Captain Mar-vel thing, when he fully used his cosmic awareness it drove him off the deep end, knowing outcomes before they happened etc
