Random Ridiculous Realization #5

Check this page out, from Emerald Dawn II (sent to me by the lovely Ragnell):

Right Here

Look at that, Hal's so manly and alpha that he can run through a prison in a *towel* and be completely unconcerned.

Whereas in contrast, from JLA 34:

And Here

How unfair is that? Kyle Rayner can't go into a prison fully clothed, in uniform, ring ready, but Hal Jordan can run around in a damn towel?

(What I want to know is what genius decided to send *Kyle Rayner* into a prison to begin with, ring or not..."We don't want him thrashing around too much" indeed, egads.)

    Oh you'd be surprised my friend. You'd certainly be surprised...

    james: Heh, it *is* a completely different circumstance I agree. However, ring or no, I wouldn't send someone that young/physically unimposing in uniform to keep order. That's just asking for trouble. Arthur, sure. Firestorm, yeah (his scary flaming head counteracts his relative youth), Superman, why not. Kyle? No. And not Wally either.

    But yes, Kyle's got him beat out in general, though you have to admit, Hal has style. "You've never flown with me". :-)

    mallet: He might, but *I* wouldn't. :-P

    Besides Kyle in prison being jumped on by tons of men, one of whom appears to be flaming *snicker*, should be something you readily appreciate. In fact I'm surprised you haven't started a petition for more "Kyle in prison" scenes. Although you can pick up any book with him and Jade together. Zing!

    I'm not one to talk though, I'm not even insane and I've fallen madly in love with a comic character
    of my own.

    mallet: I don't *need* a petition. Honestly, if you ever sit down and read Green Lantern volume 3 nonstop starting at issue 50, you'll rapidly start to notice that the poor boy ends up beaten/tied-up/tortured/torn-costumed as many times as the Golden Age Wonder Woman.

    :-) Can't fix what isn't broken.

    And Ron Marz returns to him in Ion, so while the trappings will be different, the basic pattern should resume.

    One can only hope. :-)

    I never read Green Lantern Comics. Which is odd considering Green Lanterns are one of my faveriot heros. Meh it's probably because I'm just wondering why he dosn't use the ring to turn off brain function or disable them internally.

    Honestly, it's probably because while Kyle is very pretty, creative and determined...he's not the brightest bulb in the box. So while he can hold tight to a freakin' supernova, he can't quite manage to subdue these guys...

    Pretty but dim. *nod*

    It's why Alan and Jay are the best usually. All buisness but with enough flair to get the job done and look good doing it.
