Kyle Rayner: Adult!





Gun plus Fish plus Barrel equals...

KYLE RAYNER: ADULT!

Let's look in on another day in the life our boy Kyle...

...and he appears to be questioning authority, again...

...and then it all comes out.

"Well, let me tell you something, DAD..."

Kyle Rayner: Adult! has "daddy" issues?!? Who'd've thunk it. Between his "dead" mother and an absentee father, it's a miracle this guy hasn't sucked his thumb down to the bone.


We love you, Kyle Rayner: Adult!

(Please don't kill us.)

Green Lantern beating up on a couple local cops...yah, that'll improve metahuman relationships with law enforcement authorities, easily.

He's not in costume. And only Guy and John's identities are public knowledge I think. Hal's and Kyle's were still secret.

err, ignoring the fact that he's absolute crap at actually hiding his identity. :-P

But at least as of this early in his run, there's a decent chance that not *everyone* knows he's the Green Lantern.

Maybe. Heh.

So the artist wasn't supposed to draw that big ring visible in every panel? It's kind of a giveaway.

This was actually the wierdest thing about that crossover.

See, the old Green Arrow/Green Lantern team-ups featured Ollie losing his head and Hal bringing him back into focus. I imagine someone thought it would be interesting to make the new guys the opposite.

I think to this day Connor Hawke is the only person that Kyle is paired with to be shown as the hothead. Otherwise, he's the completely laid back personality. Immature in a totally different way.

But I loved the Dad slip. I wish they could still use that Daddy issues characterization, but No, Winick just had to fix it and give Kyle a superspy perfect father.

I wish Hal had brought Ollie back into focus in those Denny O'Neil. Usually Ollie ranted about how unjust everything was and how the Guardians were "little blue Fascists," while Hal just kind of sat there and looked guilty.

The problem is this cop has forgotten the rule of jurisdiction. As a guardian of the entire freaking universe, Kyle Rayner therefore has jurisdiction over lowly Earth sheriffs, and is free to treat them any way he damn well pleases.

It's the same concept you see in all those movies where the FBI shows up, and they start bossing the NYPD around.
