Geoff Johns would cut off his foot and drink muddy water  rather than use John Stewart.

Has Johns used Guy Gardner or Kyle Raynor any more than John Stewart?

Johns simply (though he won't admit it) doesn't care for the character. He never used him when he was supposed to be featured in the GL title but he certainly did use Sinestro when he was the co-star.

earlier in the day, Johns hosted a workshop for area kids, where he led a 'clinic' on creating your own comics superheroes.  Later in the afternoon, Johns lectured a group of mostly adults about his career; abetted by back-projected covers of the comics and other media work he's had a hand in, Johns explained his early interest in comics, his college-era interest in film, segueing into an internship and PA position in Richard Donner's production company, which led to his earliest freelance work for DC and Marvel, then his exclusive writing deal with DC, and finally his executive position today.

There was a lengthy Q & A session after his presentation.  The New 52 was a recurring topic.  He said the lack of Arab-based heroes led to the creation of Simon Baz.  Someone brought up the situation involving black characters at DC; currently the only black lead in a title is Batwing.  Johns stated that recently canceled titles (the not mentioned but alluded-to Mr. Terrific, Voodoo) were simply due to low sales, and he claims that the Batwing title is selling "very well".  He also speculated that Cyborg may get his own ongoing series "soon."  When asked about the prospects of a female-earth-based green lantern, he responded with a cryptic "keep reading the comics", which he admitted was his default response for any question he knew he couldn't give a definitive yes or no answer to.

Johns said that aspiring creatives—particularly writers-- should frequent the convention circuit and use the Internet to seek out local/up and coming artists to collaborate with, and publishing an indie project is the best way to pitch your way into working with the Big Two.

By the end of the evening, representatives of the Arab-American museum stated that a permanent part of its library will be dedicated to Geoff Johns graphic novels/TPBs.

I bet he is referring to Carol Ferris. 

I spoke to Dan Didio today in Baltimore.  While I asked him specifically about the JLI, he said that they are doing their best to make sure that characters in canceled books show up elsewhere and losing a book doesn't mean they disappear.  Its already happening with Voodoo joining the cast of Grifter.
