Guy Certainly has a Way with Words

The best part about reviewing Guy Gardner: Reborn, was the joy of going back and rereading it, which I hadn't done in quite some time. AND, for making a new discovery. A week or so back, I had asked you all if it was worthwhile for me to go out and get the Millenium trade that DC is going to be releasing. A lot of the answers were in the negative, but it DID have Joe Staton art, so I am torn.

And yet, in going through book One of GG:Reborn, Gerard Jones just happens to touch upon the very subject of Millenium, with the creation of the New Guardians. Guy has been giving his new friend, the hookerwiththeheartofgold a recap of his recent trials and tribulations, and he brings up the subject of the New Guardians.

It turns out that she's never heard of them.

And Guy's reply?

"...Who has?"

"How do I explain these guys? It's a long story and not a very good one, neither. They're these six weirdos who got picked by the OLD Guardians to nursemaid this bunch of Cosmic Wannabees called the Chosen. Supposed to be the next step in evolution, an'...an'...ah hell. They're six weirdos on this island, that's all. Don't even remember their names. Metal Bod...Cleavage Lass...Circuit Board Man...Earring Boy...Veggie Man...oh yeah, and' one whose name I DO remember. The Eskimo...Tom Kalmaku. A dear DEAR friend o' good ol' Hal Jordan."

I think that Guy has pretty much hit the nail on the head here. Seriously, how can I POSSIBLY top that explanation? And I'm pretty sure that Cleavage Lass was in the Legion. If she wasn't, then she should be. She could hang out with my own personal favorite creation, Flaccid Lad.

I seem to be wandering away from the point here.

Hey, weren't Cleavage Lass and Flaccid Lad members of the Legion of Substitute Heroes? ;-)

And, YES, Guy really did hit the mail on the head in summing up the New Guardians. Leave it to Guy!

Sea, they SHOULD have been! Seriously, did the Legion do anything other than hold try-outs that were specifically designed to humiliate the participants?

I'm assuming that nothing much interesting happened with the New Guardians, since Tom is back to working with Ferris Air. Bit of a comedown really.
