Extreme Makeover: Boodikka
Ok, exactly how do you go from this.....
Would you believe they're actually the same woman? Even the skin color is different.
The former image comes from Green Lantern#20 from the previous volume of the book. This issue marked the Bellatrix Bomber's comics debut and her first tryout for the Green Lantern Corps.
The latter image comes from the current volume of GL, specifically GL#11, part of the "Lost Lanterns" arc, specifically the point where Hal locates the Lanterns presumed dead during his "Emerald Twilight" rampage. You may remember Hal's rampage, specifically this scene....
Anyway, Boodikka and the other "lost Lanterns" were captured by Hank "Cyborg Superman" Henshaw. Now, either Henshaw is also a top-notch plastic surgeon, Superboy-Prime punched a few too many walls, or something really strange must have happened.
How else do you explain this?
What caused this "beautification" of Boodikka?
Where is it written that every female Geen Lantern has to be a beauty queen? Even the stone woman Drix has an hourglass figure.
So far we've seen Arisia, Katma Tui (now dead), Jade (also dead), Soranik Natu, her partner, Laira (now Red), and Raker's new partner, just to name a few, filling the "pretty female GL" category.
And now Boodikka, too?
Did we really need another? And did DC have to completely make over an existing GL just to get one?
C'mon, a little variety here!
Well, now that I've gotten that off my chest, I'm going to start reading the new "Alpha Lanterns" arc.
Wait a minute. What have we here?Well, it's a start.
