Guy Gardner by dragonsong12 Guy Gardner by dragonsong12
Guy Gardner. Great Green Lantern, or GREATEST Green Lantern? haha!

I know I probably should have used a more interesting construct, the fist thing is done to death, but I can't help it, I see Guy and think "IS. THAT. A. GIANT. GREEN. FIST?!" :D

This was done as a request for thebuterfly: [link]
But I enjoyed drawing Guy anyway...though I think I could have done a better job of it. I'm not terribly pleased with how this came out. Ah well, it was still fun to do. And we all know Guy's the best. :XD: I'm really glad they're using him in Brave and the Bold. That's something at least!

Haha! I'd be lying if I said I didn't consider doing just that VERY SERIOUSLY. :D

I don't know that much about the Green Lantern(s). The one I knew the most about was the one in the Justice League cartoon, which obviously isn't this guy. The only things I know about the Green Lantern are what I've heard from friends. The one thing that stuck in my mind is that Green Lantern's only weakness is... to the color yellow? :O

Anyways it's a simple yet cool picture, the thumbnail really caught my eye. Though I do agree about the fist thing, but when I was thinking about alternatives... honestly the only thing I could think of is Guy summoning up a hot chick in a Bikini to oogle :rofl:

"Hal Jordan wanted to summon mustard for his hot dog, but it's yellow, so he is powerless against it." :rofl:

Yeah the GL weakness is yellow, which they used kinda subtly in the JL cartoon (like when evil!Flash is throwing things at GL and he has a barrier up to protect himself, the yellow butter breaks through and splatters in his face) though it's mostly downplayed nowadays and shows up in the form of the Sinestro Corps (Yellow Lanterns) who are their biggest rival.
Better than the original Green Lantern, though, his weakness was wood! :XD:

Hm...I could see Guy conjuring up a pretty lady, but only if Ice was nearby just to mess with her. His crush on her is so elementary school, haha! I love him the best because he's so abrasive on the surface that most people in the DCU don't like him, but he will always be there when push comes to shove, and he does care about his teammates, even if he doesn't show it. Though I like all the Green Lanterns but Hal (and my dislike of Hal is largely unfounded, haha!).
I went with the fist because of him using it in an awesome scene in the Blue Beetle comic, and he is a pretty straightforward guy...though in another comic he makes a construct motorcycle and rides it through space which was pretty badass.

...yes, I totally used this as an excuse to geek out over Guy Gardner, why do you ask? :D

:lmao: and here I thought my friend was just messing with me with the whole yellow thing. I could make a pretty good GL then, I hate the color yellow. Though I have to admit, the idea of wood being a weakness seems more useable to me than the color yellow. With a ring that can form anything, wood might be able to keep it from being overpowered. Then again, yellow is interesting, but honestly I see it as a weakness for a parody superhero, like the mustard thing you just mentioned :rofl:.

Well, yeah, like I said, they've actually removed the yellow weakness in some ways ever since they brough in a giant space bug called Parallax. (Because we can't have it be canon that Hal Jordan went nuts and started killing everyone, no that would be too INTERESTING! We need to come up with a way where it's not his fault, but he can still angst about it. CUE THE SPACE BUG! :XD: Oh, comics.)

The Green Lanterns overall are a bit overpowered, but it's kind of justified in canon since they're space cops, and they need to be able to stop intergalactic threats for a planet, since there's generally only one GL assigned to a planet at a time. Even more so now that there are multiple corps (who I just want an excuse to talk about :XD:) with green=will, yellow=fear, red=rage, sapphire=love, blue=hope, indigo=compassion and orange=greed. I love the orange lantern the best, there's only one since the orange lanterns are so overcome by greed that they can't bear to share the power with anyone else, so they fought until only one remained. For his "corps" he summons the spirits of all the dead orange lanterns as constructs to fight for him.

...did you know that I'm a total nerd, by the way? :D

:lmao: I can't trust anyone who ISN'T a nerd in some way, shape or form. There's something wrong with someone without some obsession with comics, sci-fi, or fantasy in any media.

I'm not too familiar with Hal's psychotic episode beyond what Linkara has mentioned about it, and as said before I don't know much about the Lanterns, though the idea of their being more than one and different kinds is interesting.

I know most about it second-hand. I like the Green Lanters (mostly) but I'm really only a FAN of Guy...my sister on the other hand, she loves the Green Lanterns. All of them. She could rattle off the backstories of most of the alien corps members. Some of them are kind of awesome, like the GL who's a smallpox virus getting partnered with GL Mogo - a living planet. Talk about size differences, haha!

My annoyance with Hal is less the fact that he went nuts and more the fact that everyone in the DCU thinks he's the greatest...when he's actually kinda dull compared to the others. We're told he's awesome without ever really seeing it. I personally don't mind him too much, though, just don't bring him up around my sister, she flat out hates the guy. haha!

Psh, Rena, Mogo the planet wasn't partnered with the virus, he was partnered with Bzzt, who is an insect! Get it right! There's only like 4400 of them at any given time, it aren't THAT hard ;-)
