That Weird Team-Up

There was this time that Jonah Hex and Hal Jordan actually had a team-up, along with Zatanna, Ralph Dibny, Bat Lash, Scalphunter and a few other characters. I don't remember precisely where, I don't remember precisely WHY in God's Name, they decided this would work, but work it did. I DO believe that Time Travel was involved, as it naturally would have to be.

Anyhoo...it's just Jonah's luck to stumble upon a prostrate Hal. He probably managed to knock himself out some how...knowing Hal. After a bit of confusion, they end up getting along fairly well.

Great Galloping Horny Toads, aren't they just adorable?

Then Jonah decides to shoot somebody, and Hal gets all pissy.

When in Rome, Hal...when in Rome.

not surprised they got on well... probably spent hours discussing their head injuries. guys are proud enough of injuries, but when you throw in possible brain damage, there's going to be a lot of talking!

I seem to remember our beloved Unca Cheeks being less than thrilled with Hal's portrayal in this comic...

"Once Upon a Time, In the Wild, Wild West" [JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #198 and #199; 1st series. Gerry Conway, writer; Don Heck, penciler] opens up with a sequence wherein the scarred and embittered bounty hunter known as Jonah Hex stumbles across an amnesiac (and wildly out of character) Green Lantern somewhere in the badlands of the American west. circa 1878.

(By "out of character" in the aforementioned paragraph: I mean the normally rock-jawed and resolute Hal Jordan aiming a Power Ring blast towards a solicitous Jonah, and shrieking "Move one inch closer, cowboy...and dead is just what you'll be!" whilst the gunslinger is attempting rescue him from a long, slow Death By Dehydration under the pitiless gaze of the desert sun. Stuff like that, there.

(There are certain subtle "signs" by which one might reasonably auger or intuit that a particular comic book -- as yet unread -- may be...

(... well...lacking a wee tad in the Quality Scripting Department.

(The Batman: striding remorselessly about...with the head of a large gopher, in place of his own. Lois Lane: ruling Apokolips, and musing over her repeated inability to divine the true nature of the Anti-Life Equation. Rob Liefeld: his name in the credits, under "writer."

(A panicky, shrilly-bleating Green Lantern is As One with any/all of these.

(So: right away, you see...we just know.)

Ah, so that's where they got the idea for the "Once and Future Thing" JLU episode! That was fu-un!

Well, one could argue that an amnesiac WOULD act out of character...

Of course, Hal would whip up a glowing green horse for himself, but I've always been disappointed that he didn't also come up with some cowboy duds, like he did in that GL-GA story. :-)

The very idea of Hal screaming in panic, just cracks me up. I don't care if he DID hae anmesia.

Gosh yes, it's a pretty horrible story, and yet strangely hilarious, if you are in the proper frame of mind.
