Here's an Interesting Thought

So...speaking of the Sinestro Corps, let's talk about Despotillis, the incredibly nasty sentient virus, who has wiped out countless innocents, not to mention some Green Lanterns AND Kyle Rayner's mother. As you all recall, he managed to infect Guy Gardner in GL #25, causing Guy to feel rather queasy, spit up yellow gunk and go blind.

Fortunately, for Guy, Soranik Natu was there, along with Leezle Pon, the Green Lantern who is ALSO a virus, and who was just ITCHING to find a live body infected with Despotillis, so that it could get a little revenge going. Turns out that it was Leezle Pon's own partner who was wiped out by Despotillis, which may have turned out to have been a major mistake on the part of Despotillis. The trick of course, was finding a LIVE body. The Despotillis virus is pretty quick-acting, and produces any number of rather disgusting symptoms.

Leezle Pon is victorious, and Guy lives, and that's a very very good thing. My question now, is, since Guy is probably the ONLY being who has managed to survive being infected by Despotillis, does his blood now possess antibodies for that particular virus? Could it be used, possibly by Soranik, to make an antidote or a vacine?

Frankly, I think that is an interesting concept. Guy Gardner could be responsible for saving an awful lot of people throughout the Universe, without lifting his ring finger. Of course, Leezle Pon and Soranik are also resonsible. I would love to see this infection thing backfire on the Sinestro Corps and Despotillis.

That's a very good point! And, of course, the Green Lanterns wouldn't have any trouble makeing the "cure" available for however many beings needed it.

HOWEVER, viruses are also known to evolve into "super" forms! With Despotellis being a sentient virus, it's entirely possible that he would look for ways to evolve himself into a virus that would be even harder to fight!

Well, evolving into a super-virus would just be...rude!

Hey Sally, following you from The Absorbascon.... I actually like Guy a lot, and I'm really glad he's been Johnsificated into a temperamental but heroic GL once again.
I loved Guy's JLI tenure ( I loved JLI, period. ), but this is a much more functional Guy.
And one who, as you mention, now is one competent MF, and sometimes just has dumb luck.

Gustavo, I'm very glad that you have the good taste to be a Guy fan. While I adore the old JLI, and Brain-Damaged Guy can be awfully amusing, I must admit that I prefer him with his brains unscrambled.

He's still an asshole of course...but an ENDEARING asshole!

The only problem would be adapting human's white blood cells to whatever species they're trying to vaccinate. Humans and Korugans mightn't be too far apart, but the rest of the galaxy mightn't even use DNA...

But hey, they're Green Lanterns, so its probably not going to be *that* hard. ^_^

I could see Despotellis in some kind of Petri-Dish gym or something, working out on tiny lil' virus exercise equipment. Heh. ^_^
