Green Lantern Corps #53

Well I'll just say here and now, that Tony Bedard is doing a bang-up job with the Corps.

Come with us now, to Qward, and a little bit of history, concerning the head Weaponeer. He apparently was the one who made that bitchin' ring for Sinestro. Unfortunately, things didn't turn out quite the way that they all expected, and Sinestro is pretty much persona non grata on Qward nowadays.

Meanwhile, on Korugar, Kyle is busy saving various natives, and keeps ringing up Soranik. Soranik is just a tad busy herself, so Kyle actually has to do things himself, but that's ok, because the Korugarians are actually THRILLED to be rescued by a Green Lantern. Who'd a thunk? Several members of the Sinestro Corps however, are not pleased by the acclaim being awarded Kyle, and start blustering.

Kyle has obviously been hanging around with Guy for too long, because he's a little on the cocky side. It IS funny however. Arkillo decides he's not going to interfere, so the guy with no brain decides he's going to take Kyle down. Kyle, STILL in cocky mode, points out that he's fought Sinestro, Parallax, Oblivion AND Mongul. Suddenly Brainless isn't quite as enthusiastic as he was formerly. It all becomes moot however, when the Weaponeer shows up...and suddenly there is one fewer members of the Sinestro Corps.

The Weaponeer is looking for the REAL Green Lantern, which I have to admit, made me snicker. Poor Kyle. You just don't get any respect. Kyle does get to do some nice visual things with his ring and some armor, all of which leaves the Weaponeer completely unimpressed. If you all recall, he has some serious firepower using that bit of white power left over on Qward by Deadman.

Fortunately for Kyle, Soranik shows up in the nick of time, and rescues his gorgeous behind. Unfortunately for her, the baddie not only knows who her Daddy is, but he's there to take her as a hostage for Sinestro. It seems that he's a mite displeased with Sinestro, and really who can blame him.

Kyle somehow takes the news of Soranik's parentage in stride, although I have to admit that I would have liked to have seen him display at least a LITTLE bit of consternation. This IS a rather huge revelation after all. But without skipping a beat, Kyle goes flying off to Earth, in search of Sinestro, so that the two of them can go and rescue Soranik.

Sinestro however, is having none of it. I don't know if he's really that disinterested, or if he just doesn't want to work with Kyle. You have to admit that the whole situation is a bit...awkward. After all, Kyle IS sleeping with his baby girl!

But Kyle, God bless him, is just not taking no for an answer.


Heehee! Now Sinestro knows how Hal feels most of the time! And you must admit that Kyle probably found this to be satisfying. MOST satisfying!
Guy would be so proud.

I can hardly wait for the next issue!

In a weird way, it IS nice to see a Qwardian displaying some backbone, considering the Qwardians are usually treated/depicted like Sinestro's sheep.

While I must admit that I like Kyle since Blackest Night, it was just several kinds of awesomenes when Siniestro says to him "watch it, there are no Hal, John or Guy to save you now"... Just brilliant, because it shows how Siniestro respects Guy and all the gang but Kyle.

Also, the design of the weaponer is quite cool.

Sinestro's sheep inDEED! Well, they seem to be getting some of their own back, and it's about time!

I DID like the part where Sinestro sneers at Kyle and tells him that Hal, Kilowog and Guy aren't there to prop him up. And this is after the Weaponer wants to know where the REAL Green Lantern is.

Kyle just can't get a break.

See, I think Sinestro is jealous. Kyle was the only Green lantern for the entire universe, and held his own. Sinestro couldn't even pull that stuff on his own planet without being thrown in jail. OK, I'm reaching, I know.

Should we hold out any hope that this mission will get Sinestro to give Kyle at least a little respect?

It WOULD be nice if Sinestro would get off of poor Kyle's case...but knowing Sinestro, I think the chances for that are slim to none. NOBDODY impresses Sinestro...except maybe Sinestro. He's a lot like Hal in this respect.
