Green Lantern Butt's FOREVER!

Now with Guy Gardner's Seal of Approval!

It's Friday

It's Friday, and quite frankly, I'm pooped. So I don't have anything particularly mindboggling for you all today.

Well...except this perhaps.

jaime and guy

God, I miss this book. And this particular issue was SO full of fabulous stuff. The giant green fist and flightful and harmful penguins for a start. It's nice that Jaime has been showing up in the new JLI: Generations Lost book, but he really hasn't had a whole lot to do there...at least not yet. I'm also firmly convinced that they NEED to have a Green Lantern appearance...preferably Guy. I mean really how can you have the JLI and NOT have Guy?

And speaking of Guy...his patting out the sparks in his hair is just...too perfect.

Have a nice weekend!

If it makes you feel better about Jaime, Winick has said that he'll have an issue focused on him like the Captain Atom one. I think everyone besides Booster (and maybe Garvil) will get one. He's also expressed an interest in building a new Blue and Gold relationship which I love. I just hope they make this an ongoing after it wraps up. These guys and gals all need a home. And then we might even see the Reyes and Carter families more.

Erin, that IS good news! I'm rather fond of Jaime, and it would be nice to have him more involved. Not to mention that his family are THE best supporting characters that I can think of in a very long time.

I have to admit however, that I'm falling in love with Garvil too. He's a hoot.

Found one of the interviews with Winick. While this one doesn't talk about his interest in Blue and Gold he does talk about the character issues and how subtle he's not being about Ice. Spolierish bits on where that's going to lead to upcoming issues.

He also seems giddy that people seem to be taken with Rocket Red.

I do like the new Rocket Red, and I'm basically enjoying the book...with the exception of his depiction of Ice, which I think is comPLETELy out of character.

I can understand her being a bit hesitant, and not necessarily being gung ho about the whole thing, because seriously, they ARE a bit nuts...but...swearing? Whining? That's NOT Tora.

Booster + Jaime = ack!! no!!! At least, not in my humble opinion. I just don't understand what DC's editors have against Ted Kord. Just because Jaime's a Blue Beetle doesn't mean he has to be friends with Booster Gold. There's other people Jaime can pal around with.

If it's a temporary friendship, okay.

Jaime SHOULD be palling around with Guy! And he should be bringing Milagro along for the ride, because she has SUCH a crush on my favorite Green Lantern.

And really, who can blame her?

What issue was that Blue Beetle? Because I want to try and find it online. I'm trying to get collecting on recent Guy Gardner issues.

Yes! Jaime + Guy would be great! Blue and Green!

Sally: Rereading my GLC Tora does seem very freaked out about dying, etc. in Blackest Night. That part I could buy. I'm not too thrilled with her causal use of sweaing but hopefully it will lead to something better. I think half of the reason I like RR is how he affects Captain Atom. I'm hoping they get paired up at one point.

Lissbirds: Well for a long time the editors didn't even want Booster to be in the same book as Jaime or have any real connect besides Booster being the guy that found him. They've been distant but generally on good terms. I sorta like Jaime being like his little brother, it's a different relationship than the one he had with Ted. And I think being on this team is a huge step up from the Titans. Plus his sister can hang out with Rani.

Yeah, I wish Ice would at least cut out the swearing. :( And (SPOILER ALERT) in that same interview, Winick mentions that Tora and Bea are going to fight each other?

Jaime as little brother I can accept. :) Besides, he is younger, anyway. As best buds, nah, that's a position only Ted can fill.

Regarding Ice

SPOILERS


Yep, it's been in the solicits, apparently something happens during a fight that sets her off and Bea has to be the one to try and set her right. At least she's only dropped the h bomb so far.

I never got the vibe that anyone was trying to recreate the same blue and gold vibe with Jaime. Other than Booster acting kinda clinging during their introduction the writers either have them sort of distant, Jaime a little mad at being dragged into things, or reinforcing that he's not Ted. Besides, Jaimes' the only one on the team that knows the truth about Booster. It'd be nice to see that acknowledged.

A Bea/Tora catfight? Whodathunk?

There have been times that Tora became upset with Bea in the past...usually when Bea was running down Guy, but I really, CANNOT imagine the two of them actually being mad enough at each other to physically fight.

Bea is feisty, loud and occasionally a little pushy, so yes, I can see Bea getting miffed. But Tora? Being dead or not, she has NEVER been written as being obnoxious...with the possible exception of the way she was acting just before she got blowed up by the Overmaster, but that's because she was sort've mind-controlled if I remember it correctly.

Tora cries over pictures of little kittens for God's sake.

It's hard to say how it happens but it sounds like it's when the team is fighting someone else. My guess is that she comes very close to dying again and freaks out. Bea would likely try to calm her down and then it spirals into them fighting each other and making it more personal. At least that's my take.
