Oh Hal...!

It occurs to me that I haven't made fun of Hal Jordan in a little while. It also occured to Sea of Green over at the "Hoosier Journal of Inanity", and she therefore did a MAGNIFICENT essay on an early issue of Green Lantern that involved Leap Year, Hal's female Fan Club and the inimitable Carol Ferris.

Needless to say, I'm still snickering.

I do have to say that I rather like the Hal's outfit with the black shoulders however. Very sexy. It's pretty obvious that Hal has some problems however. He's "in love" with Carol, but only on his terms. He does have this nasty habit of playing games with her. She's in love with Green Lantern, not Hal, but she's just as fond of playing weird games as he is. I'm not completely convinced that Carol didn't know perfectly well that Hal WAS Green Lantern anyway. It really isn't that huge a leap of logic.

I do think however, that the idea of a largely teenaged female Fan Club for Hal Jordan is a BRILLIANT idea, and one that I wish Geoff Johns would consider. I have to wonder if there is a large generic Green Lantern Fan Club, or if each of the Earth-based GL's have their own individual chapters? Kyle's would probably be pretty unruly, but on the young side. Picture "Hannah Montana" fans running amok.

John's groupies would probably be a little more restrained. I don't even want to think about what Guy's bunch would be like. Wait...I know EXACTLY what Guy's bunch would be like! Heh heh.

Would they have dues? Imitation rings? Meet at the library on alternate Wednesdays? Serve refreshments? Or get on the internet and fantasize about their hindquarters?

Hal Pictures

This is from the "Leapyear" story over at Sea's. Go read it. It's a hoot. And seeing Hal get hit in the head, is ALWAYS hilarious...no matter how many times I see it.

Ooh, look at the time! Off to get my funny books.

Oh that one looks like it smarts!

Yeah, I think we already know what Guy's fan club would be like, heh, heh, heh ... ;-) I think the OFFICIAL GL fan clubs should get together and purchase Guy's old Warriors property, then build a new bar/gathering place devoted to GL fans. Then the different factions of the clubs can get together on different nights and gripe about why one Green Lantern is better than the others. You GOTTA make sure the meetings are on different nights, though, otherwise you'd end up with brawls galore!

On the other hand, an occasional brawl might kinda be fun! ;-)

Sea, that is the most brilliant idea ever conceived. Justu picture a nice tea party by Alan Scott fans, to be followed by the far more rowdy Hal fans.

The possibilities are endless.

Yeah, all-Alan Scott fans do tend to be much more civil than other GL fans.

'Course, putting the "nothin' but Kyle" fans together with the "nothin' but Hal" fans would be very, VERY dangerous. I think there would be blood. Oh, yes -- definitely blood. (All of the other GL fans would get along swimmingly with the Kyle fans, though.)

Guy fans and Hal fans together would all beat the living crapola out of each other. Then they'd all end up crowding around the bar to drink beer, ogle women, and slap each other on the back. ;-)

John fans would remain calmly aloof from the whole mess, but wade in if things get too out of hand. Then there'd be another huge fight, and afterward everyone would end up buddying up at the bar again.

At least, that's my take on the whole thing.

Sounds like FUN, actually.

... well, not necessarily ogling women (that's what Guy and Hal would actually do, not necessarily the fans) -- but definitely ogling whoever they WANT to ogle. ;-)

Heh heh. I know what I would be ogling!
