How to make a Fortune in the DC Universe

This is Hal Jordan.

Hal is very brave, and very pretty. He also gets hit in the head. A LOT.

This is Oliver Queen.

novice guy

He is also a superhero, known as Green Arrow. He enjoys making terrible chili, and tries to poison unsuspecting Green Lanterns. (Yes, this is Guy, not Hal. Hal is immune to Ollie's chili)

Oliver Queen used to be rich. RICH! Then he lost all his fortune. Ollie was sad. Arrows don't grow on trees you know. Ollie wondered how he could regain his fortune. So, one day he looked at his best friend, Hal.

Ollie noticed that although he was brave AND handsome, Hal was also...something of a klutz. Clumsy even. And boy, did he ever seem to get hit in the head a lot! And a lightbulb went off in the air over Oliver's own head!

So he took all that was left of his money, and borrowed all the spare cash that Black Canary had lying around, and bought lots and lots of stock in a company that manufactures aspirin.

Now Ollie is rich again. And he is happy. A little gassy from all the chili...but happy.

Hal still has a headache.

*Snicker!* :-D

You're right, Sally -- There's just no excuse for not being able to make money in the DCU!


One of these days I'm gonna figure out exactly why Hal getting hit in the head is so funny. But it IS funny!

It reminds me of the issue of 52 where Booster put advertisments all on his costume ^^ in real life this is how it would end ^^

Arrows don't grow on trees you know.

I don't care if Ollie's arrows are probably actually made of metal; I lol'd.

I too, don't quite know why Hal getting bonked in the head is so hilarious, but it is. One of those great mysteries of the Cosmos, I suppose.

I also find it interesting that Kyle gets tied up a lot. Well, at least when Marz was writing him.

And Guy always, ALWAYS has the best one-liners.

Yeah, Booster is as bad as a Nascar driver.

Who knows WHAT Ollie's arrows are made of? I'm waiting for a chili arrow.

What a sweet story...

(My word verification wants "mgosck"...sounds like mxylptlk's second cousin, twice removed. The Scottish cousins.)
