I'm not saying this wasn't cool, but why exactly did Guy decide to beat the absolute shit out of Arkillo?
>>
>>90525716
to prove he was the best.
>>
>>90525744
>>90525744
Did he think someone was convinced he wasn't? Did he have something out for Arkillo? Or did he just suddenly say "I'm going to go beat the living tits off of Arkillo. Hold my ring, bitch."
>>

didn't arkillo fight fucking mongul without a ring and actually put up a good fight?. one punch would have ripped guy's head off

Come on, Arkillo. Pick your battles.

Once, while they were still dating, Guy cheated on Ice. He didn't know that she knew that he did.

So when she was giving him the usual five-fingered tunnel tug, the euphoric experience went from feeling great to feeling like nothing at all. Guy looked down and saw that she had frozen his entire package.

Ice was real sweet about it, told him that she knew he had cheated on her, but she wasn't mad. Not anymore. And she was quite careful in her ministrations. In about three days, it'd thaw by its own and he'd be none the worse for wear. If he were to say, nudge it, even a little bit, even with his ring it would either shatter or be irreparably damaged. Such was the precision and intelligence invested into this vengeance. So Guy stood there. Butt naked, hungry, and slowly succumbing to dehydration for 72 hours just so his huevos wouldn't fall off.

tl;dr Guy is a tough guy.
>>
So does Guy have Warrior genes going on right now?

Did he drink warrior water?
>>
>>90525716
You're not from Baltimore
>>
>>90525661
>>90525668

So does Guy have some kind of super strength or invulnerability I don't know about? Was Arkillo nerfed recently? Or was this just the most ridiculous example of Guy-wank to date?
>>
>>90525964
The answer is THIS GUY.
THIS GARDNER.
>>
>>90525964
Arkillo's always been a little bitch. Literally Kilowog-lite.
>>
>>90525895
he theoretically shouldnt anymore, but its not like any of that shit has been used in quite some time, so theres no reason it couldnt come back
>>
>>90525564
The booze bottle is called Charm City, the place Powerless tv show takes place.

>>
Interesting to know where the artists of Invincible went.
>>
>>90525964
All the hints of "warrior" T-shirt could imply that Guy is still a Vuldarian and that that wasn't retconned.
>>
How can one man be so based?

Anyone mind explaining the Guy Gardner: Warrior stuff they seem to maybe be hinting at? Al I know is that he at one stage had the ability to turn into an alien or something?
>>
Yay, more "humans are awesome, aliens are pathetic" nonsense. This is why it's so difficult for me to remain interested in GL shit...all these cool alien characters, but they all end up bowing down to the almighty four of Earth.

I could only IMAGINE the shitstorm if it was Batman who beat up Arkillo instead of Guy (who, by the way, 1-hit KO'd Guy).
>>
>>90526573
Why are you offended that Humans are being potrayed better than Aliens? Are you an alien?
>>
You know, we can sit and talk about how Arkillo must have been nerfed to shit, how this is Guywank of the highest level, and so on and so forth. But goddamn do I love it when a comic is just one big fight from cover to cover, and this one delivered

Guys, relax; he's been training since all it took was ONE PUNCH for Batman.
>>
>>90526573
Guy is cray cray and fighting a dangerous alien with his bare fists because he's that much of a mad man. Also not fully human, probably.
>>
>>90527478

>Venditti wrote that

Man how does DC get the best of people?
>>
Jesus, how many body parts has Arkillo lost now? His tongue, an eye, and a few fingers?
>>
>>90528646
I feel so bad for writers who get bad reps when coming up because they don't get to tell the kinds of stories they want how they want.

Vendetti is obviously having a blast Post-Rebirth and I can't imagine he didn't want to do a comic like this before.

Editorial counts for so much, but the writers are always going to catch the heat when they're doing their best with shitty direction/hamfisting.
>>
>>90528739
Venditti's GL was terrible with maybe two good issues out of thirty+

You can only blame editorial for so much
>>
>>90528777
Except here we are...

It's not like he moved to Superman. It's the same property. Editorial is the only thing that has changed.
>>
>>90525668
>>90525661
Jesus
>>
>>90525564
Good, I'm glad they took his family back to the way it was. Copying the O'Dares and making them all cops really cuts out all of Guys personality/issues.
>>
Thanks for the storytime, OP. Guy's the best.

>>90525853
Naw, he's always been from Baltimore.
>>
>>90525578
Guy <3

I've been enjoying GLC this run but I haven't checked out the other comic with Gun Lantern and the girl, is it any good?
>>
>>90525684
Damit your're a surgon. Juast make a light defribilator or something
>>
>>90529390
It got good after the Red Tower Arc.

>>90526697
I dont have a problem with Guy kicking Arkillo's ass desu. If Hal can beat up Kilowog why not Guy with Arkillo
>>
>>90526084
Charm City is also Baltimore's nickname.
>>
>>90525661
>>90525668
Cool how they brought Robert Kirkman in to write this sequence.
>>
>>90530122
Not nearly enough murder or mustaches.
>>
>>90526492
Vuldarians were a species of ultimate warriors and they seeded different planets with their genetics to keep their species from dying out. Used to be that Guy Gardner was a Vuldarian/human hybrid, which gave him specialised shapeshifting powers. He could basically weaponise himself, turn his arms into guns and shit like that.

It was a fun run, but weird. Pretty sure it got retconned out later on during one of Guy's background reboots, so who knows if it's still a thing.
>>
>>90525661
>>90525668

Is this the same Arkillo who can rip people in half with his bare hands? The one that had a knock-down, drag-out fight with fucking Mongul, and is supposedly one of the most brutal and fearsome creatures in the universe?

Bull-fucking-shit. This is god-tier level jobbing.
>>
>>90530122
>>90530176
And the teeth on display are too nice. Even Arkillo's. And where are all the rapist fat chicks?
>>
>>90530247
It never got retconned that it didn't happen, just that he got 'cured' when Rebirth happened and he became a GL again.
>>
>>90529957
Didn't Hal have the gauntlet? Not quite the same as bare hands
>>
>>90530247
It was still canonical during the first lantern stuff
>>
>>90530479
>>90531243
GL stuff in general has had very little retcons compared to most comics. It's nice.

I'm always hoping for some sort of new Guy Gardner: Warrior event or mini.
>>
>>90525545
How do Guy bros feel about giving him a sidecut? Or is that more a high and tight? EIther way, it beats the shit out of the crew cut he had for the longest time. I can actually imagine him as a live action character now.
>>
>>90525578
When people ask for a single page to sum up Guy, I think we got ourselves a new contender.
>>
Guy will be fine, right?

>Mfw Guy finds Sinestro's ring and becomes leader of the Yellow Corps

How do you reckon Sinestro will come back anyway or is he dead for good? I kind of want him to stay dead since it would cement that Hal has finally conquered fear and triumphed over it.
>>
>Guy's gonna die! We neede to stop this!!!!
>Oh shit Guy's winning let's see where this goes

Typical Green Nazi cunts
>>
>>90530479
Specifically, Rebirth claimed that his Vuldarian DNA was actually a virus.
>>
>>90532006
Bowl cut or high and tight both work for me, but I didn't mund the crew cut, either.
>>
>>90532364
>when you hate him but can't admit it
>>
What if they fix Guy's internal bleeding by replacing his blood?
>>
>>90525496
Okay, that was utter shit. Arkillo almost beaten Mongul. Guy is just a human. He is not even a good fighter. Damn, first Detective comics where Batman is immideatly jobbing and now this. Disgusting.
>>
>>90532766
They were both using rings in that. Besides, Guy and Kilowog used to rough house all the time so it's not like he's a little bitch boy.
>>
>>90532766
>its a Stewartfag whining episode

Go cry about your planet elsewhere. This thread is for good Lanterns only.
>>
>>90532233
>kind of want him to stay dead since it would cement that Hal has finally conquered fear and triumphed over it.
That's pretty cool, but at the same time I want Sinestro back so they can keep being homogay for each other

They just need to Rebirth that extra Parallax that's been floating around and put John back in a wheelchair

>>
>>90529390
It's entertaining, both have interesting dynamics with one another and are trying to overcome their flaws as rookies.

If this Guy isn't Vuldarian this was such bullshit.
>>
>>90540465
I'd say they're clearly hinting at that.

>when characterfagging goes too far

Whelp, Arkillo had a good run I guess. I can't imagine ever taking the character seriously after this fucking embarrassment.
>>
>>90530693
I'm talking about the time Hal and Kilowog fought barehanded in the mud pits.
>>
>>90532233
>>90534460
I'm gonna guess that Sinestro is inside Lyssa since she's acting as the book of Parallax
>>
>>90544248
Well, he's certainly been inside her before
>>
>>90544129
Arkillo has been job master supreme since his inception Anon, he had no credibility to begin with.
>>
>>90543272
Objectively the most based guy in all of DC.
>>
>>90532063
The one where he chugs a beer before being tortured is probably an even better one to sum up what he's all about.
>>
>>90525539
how is space cabbie just floating there in the second panel
>>
>>90525821
Yea I thought Arkillo was Mongul tier superstrong.

How the fuck does Guy manage to do anything?
>>
>>90549942
I dont remember but I think Arkillo had his ring, that was when they fought in Daxam right?
>>
>Sorankik still zipped up

never gonna be okay with this
>>
>>90525578
Sandoval's best page?
>>
>>90544484

Arkillo is credible as Saint Walker's friend.
>>
You'd think the Warriors shirt would be enough of a visual clue for people..
>>
>>90551177
A lot of people probably didn't notice it or didn't get the reference.
>>
>>90549979

They both had rings, but didn't use any constructs, it was a fist-fight through and through, and they were bringing down buildings and shit.
>>
>>90544484

Not really. He fell prey to the whole "Green Lanterns are objectively better than everyone else" thing, like everyone else, but he was still pretty badass. This is just...so beyond that it's ridiculous.
>>
>>90544201

Hal being able to handle Kilowogg physically without a ring, in a mud pit nonetheless, is every bit as stupid.
>>
>>90525545
Loving Arkillo's dialogue here.

Straight out of a teenage DM trying to make his villain sound badass.
>>
>>90525556
Pfft. You call THAT a ONE PUNCH?

It didn't even make him retarded!
>>
>>90527300
It just means butt, britbonger.
>>
>>90551833
First major fight he had was with Kilowog and he got his ass beat. Second fight with Kilowog he got his ass beat and his finger removed. His fight against Mongul to rule the Sinestro Corps got his tongue ripped out and his ass beat. Arkillo's design is great, but his job is to get his ass beat to make others look better.
>>
>>90527487
It's what Guy WOULD want.
>>
>>90552104

He's a Yellow Lantern, of course he's going to lose to Green Lanterns. Also the fight with Mongul was sick, him losing a close fight doesn't do much for your argument when Mongul is a Superman-tier combatant. Even so, that does not change the fact that having him lose a bare-knuckle fight to Guy fucking Gardner is one of the biggest examples of PiS in recent memory.

I can't believe they killed Guy.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY KILLED GUY!!!

Did those fucking goddamn imbeciles at DC stop to think that maybe, MAYBE some of us liked him?!? Then they give us this massive FUCK YOU.

That's it. I'm never buying another fucking issue of DC again. They can go fuck themselves
>>
>>90525893

So they made him cheat on Ice too, THEN kill him. Guy's supposed to be better than that

Basically editorial decided to get rid of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp, making Kyle the only Green Lantern. Since Guy Gardner was still popular at the time and had a ring and his own book they had to do something. So they made him have alien powers. Now that the corps is back no more alien powers.
