Friday Night Fights: O.P.P.! - Round 5: St. Patrick's Day Edition!

After taking a week off, I'm back in the squared circle, this time with a special St. Patrick's Day Panel O' Pain! And what better way to celebrate this Irish holiday than with a bit o' the Green?

Lantern, that is!

Tonight's Emerald Painfest comes to us from Green Lantern#25, written by Gerard Jones and illustrated by M.D. "Doc" Bright and Romeo Tanghal. The situation: Hal Jordan wants to be the Earth's GL. Guy Gardner already is the Earth's GL. They decide to fight for it. Winner takes all. Loser leaves the GL Corps.

They start out dueling with their rings, but too much property is getting trashed, so they decide to forgo the rings and fight man-to-man. Hal gets in his first shot and knocks Guy down. The rest of the Leaguers think Guy will go down with one punch like he did with Batman. But Guy ain't havin' it. He starts whaling on Hal while revealing his favorite Kelly Clarkson song:

Funny, I would have guessed "Miss Independent". Who knew?

Uh yeah, yelling out "one punch!" may not have been the smartest thing to do around Guy.

Green Lantern #25 always sets me off into spasms of rage, that can only be controlled by reflecting that Hal was actually being influenced by Parallax at the time, and therefore had an excuse for being a complete and utter dick.
