Wow, now *that* is advertisement!

In Green Lantern (Volume 3) #88, we first meet Kyle Rayner's mother.

Maura Rayner

Quite the matronly woman, wouldn't you say? Not unattractive mind you, but certainly, she could use a little work.

And apparently, over the course of 65 issues, while her son was being kidnapped, tortured, kidnapped, tied up, beaten up, and turning into a god, Mrs. Rayner decided to make a change.

And what a change.

In Green Lantern #153, we see her again:

Maura Rayner again.

Not bad at all! Jade, as audience surrogate, asks the obvious question, how did she do it? And her answer? Well...

How's that for advertizing?

(And hee, Kyle speaks Gaelic...and thus knows his name means "Chief Lantern" or "A narrow place of light"...which is funny to me.)

    A tuck and the atkins eh?

    I'm two steps away from looking like a god!

    Well, she neglected to mention the part about a change in artists, but that would break the fourth wall, and apparently only Deadpool can do that so . . .

    Still, Kyle better watch out. Hal did say yellow was his weakness and she's looking kind of blonde . . .

    Heh, I bet Maura Rayner could break the fourth wall if she really wanted to. (And regardless of artists, she's drawn thusly from this point on)

    Heh, mother *and* son. Hal's such a playboy.
