Back To the Grind

Man, I did NOT want to go back to work again today...especially, because it was such a GORGEOUS weekend. Now it's cloudy and we have some random thunderstorms, and...and...bleh. So I HOPE that everyone had a lovely Memorial Day. And remember that the books will be coming on Thursday instead of Wednesday, which always throws me off, even though it does seem to occur fairly regularly.


So. We've all seen the upcoming cover of August's Green Lantern, right?
It shows the manly manly Predator, holding a pissed-off Carol/Star Sapphire in pink chains. Unlike Carol, the Predator is wearing a completely form-covering black costume with nifty armor. This is so TOTALLy unfair. If most of the Star Sapphires are going to prance around in barely-there outfits, then by gum, their avatar should be equally half-nekkid.

But noooooooo!

So. You know who SHOULD be the embodiment of a Male Star Sapphire?


Vartox. He'd be PERFECT as a Male Star Sapphire. I cannot claim authorship for this perfectly stunning idea, someone on the Scans Daily blog came up with it first...but I think it's rather brilliant. Not only does he bare his manly chest and thighs, but he's just so INTO it! The Predator is something of a Wuss in comparison.

Alas, an opportunity missed.

egads you're right!

Vartox for Star Sapphire-ness!

Thank god for Power Girl this week. the only bright spark in a pile of rubbish.

The past twelve issues of Power Girl have been simply magnificent, and I'm going to miss it terribly. After the way that Winick slaughtered Tora and Guy over in Justice League last week, there is NO WAY that I'm going to sit back and watch him do the same thing to Peej.

Man, I can hold a grudge!

I'm going to give Winick a chance. Since I've already done Previews orders through August, at least 3 issues. It took Claremont 5 issues to drive me off Exiles, how much damage can Winick do in 3?

I shouldn't have asked that, should I? Oh dear.

This is what a male Sapphire costume should look like: http://media.photobucket.com/image/papillon%20buso%20renkin/Dark_Zaku/snapshot20061129224903.jpg

Wow, Vartox always reminds me of Sean Connery in Zardoz.

Holy crap! You're right!

I second the Vartox for Star Sapphire motion!

And by the way, Sally, Winick only slaughtered Tora. There's no such thing as "out of character" when someone's completely mind-controlled, with the exception of whether he or she can GET mind-controlled. If Max compels Guy to do nothing but stand around making armpit fart noises while singing "Mambo No. 5", that's what Guy's gonna do unless he can resist.

As much as I might enjoy watching Guy stand around and make armpit noises (and I would), I'm still not exactly sure WHEN Max was able to put his little mind-whammy on him. He did con him into letting him go immediately after Blackest Night, but Guy called him "sir", so my impression was that he was flashing back to when Max was leading the JLI. So obviously, he remembered him. I still don't think that Max's powers can reach all the way to Oa.

And HAL is the one who gets his mind taken over. Frequently.

after guy said sir we saw a panel of max with a nose bleed.

my interpretation of this sequence was that guy was aboutt o attack max for being a murderer, max put the mind whammy on him, resulting in guy stopping the attack and looking a bit dazed, calling max Sir, then Max got a nosebleed.

Cos no other heroes went for Max, I assumed he put the mind whammy on the whole world at the same time.

The entire WORLD mind-whammy was later. Everyone was out looking for him, and he holed up in their old headquarters, with a lot of stolen plasma and a kiddie pool full of ice. THEN he did his mind-whammy.
