Subj: The Curious Case of the Vuldarian Guy...
Posted: Sun May 14, 2017 at 12:52:29 pm EDT (Viewed 639 times)

Take a look at Brian Cronin's Comicbook Legends for the insider story on how and why losing his Yellow Power Ring and Semi-Lantern status should have sent Guy Gardner down a very different path to the one we actually got presented to us, and what his writer Beau Smith thought of it all...

"Guy would find out that there was a reason why he has always been drawn to being a hero. Why the blue boys of Oa picked him, why he always insisted he was the only true Green Lantern. The reason… like salmon do whatever they have to do to get back up stream to.. Guy had to be a hero. Guy was the last of his kind."

Vuldarian Guy Gardner was entirely a creation of the early 1990's school of design excess and machismo, but love it or hate the series Beau Smith did serve Guy quite well, and the version we have today does owe a debt to the character work laid down by Smith in that ever changing series.

An Interesting article to read. \(yes\)
