> I know that the original Mongul got killed in Underworld Unleashed, but then the second Mongul showed up. But then, didn't he get killed? I know that a Mongul has appeared since then, and I remember Geoff Johns saying that he wanted to use, I think the original Mongul. Since Mongul is kind of an enemy of Hal Jordan, I assume that the Mongul who showed up in Infinite Crisis was the original Mongul? Or am I wrong? And what's his current status? Thanks.

Nothing definitive has been said, but odds are that Superboy-Prime's punches when he was trying to break free of the "heaven", resurrected Mongul. He was always more of a Superman villian, until Green Lantern #46 from 1993. After that, he returned looking for revenge in GL #53 and 54, but by that point the Corps were gone and Kyle was the only active GL. Not counting Alan Scott.

It was almost certainly Mongul II that appeared in IC, since Johns expanded on that appearance in Green Lantern at the time. I suspect that we have seen the last of the original Mongul, since Johns spent some time establishing a status quo for this one in that GL arc, bringing him more in line with the original, Pre-CRISIS Mongul.
