This should be entertaining:

Okay, somehow I seem to have missed the little bit of information that Green Lantern and Supergirl are going to be in a Brave and the Bold comic soon.

And by "Green Lantern", I mean Hal.

This amuses me far more than it probably should.

I mean, on one level, you have Oliver Queen's token moderate-conservative foil, who's both a military man and an intergalactic beat cop, used to authority and particularly known for arrogance. And you have the current incarnation of Supergirl: a rebellious, angsty, emo, angry teenage girl.

This is going to be PRICELESS.

Honestly, I can't think of a more entertaining mix. Kyle wouldn't work, as he's got the emotional maturity of a teenager himself. (And would probably be crush material, and Kara's growing on me enough that I'd rather not see her dead just yet.) John wouldn't be phased by anything she did. And Guy...

Well, considering the shit GUY's pulled over the years, I think he'd more likely just laugh his ass off. This is the guy who called Superboy Prime a crybaby.

Though come to think about it, that partnership might actually be good for Kara: a guiding figure with a background in psychology and education, who won't really blink much of an eye at teenage antics, who has no fear and probably would react to her sprouting crystals out of her back with a bit of "What the hell?!" at the most. He's incredibly deliberately obnoxious, which'll give her someone to rebel against without ever realizing she's actually doing what he wants her to do. He's also got no real awe of Superman, which might give her the chance to feel like she's escaping his shadow more.

And he likes to annoy Batman, and you can't tell me that wouldn't appeal to a teenager. Seriously.

Darn, now I'd really like to see that partnership at some point. I think Kara could really benefit from a mentor figure more obnoxious than she could ever hope to be. And I never get tired of seeing Guy Gardner verbally smackdown idiot teenagers. (I always seriously thought that when it came down to it, Guy is the Earth Lantern that would make the best parent. And heck, in the case of emergency, there's always Kilowog for backup.)

Still, Hal and Kara will be hilarious. If Guy's the most suited to working with a kid like Kara, Hal's the least. This should, I hope, be amusing as hell.

...Thank god, Geoff Johns retconned away that problem with Arisia...

    Heh heh. I'm not quite sure how they are going to get Supergirl into Las Vegas, and get Batman out, but it will certainly be interesting.

    You're right, Guy and Kara would be a hoot. However HAL and Kara should be comedy gold. He isn't going to have the faintest idea of how to handle her. IF they are written in character that is.

    A Guy/Supergirl partnership would be GENIUS if it were written by the right person. Pure comic genius! I never would have thought of it before, but now I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner.

    I bow before your superior - whatever it is that made you think of sticking Guy and Supergirl together. That's just awesome.

    This is indeed genius. And might actually make me like the new Kara.

    If only DC would make it so!

    ....and now I feel the need to make fanart.

    But which Supergirl will it be, the one from her own title or the one from the Legion title? Supposedly there is a reason why the two versions are dissimilar.

    Speaking of Supergirl, it's rumored that she might be appearing in Season 2 of the Legion TV show. Check out this from today's Legion Omnicom, concept sketches by one of the storyboard artists.

    There's also a difference between Supergirl in her own title, and Supergirl guest appearing in, say, a Superman title or in Infinite Crisis.

    Supergirl outside of her own book is treated as "Superman, but, you know, a girl." It actually works better if that's all you know about her.

    She's really only a train wreck in her own book.
