Green Lantern: New Guardians 21 (Spoilers eventually)

Postby TimDrake'sDumbWings » Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:56 pm

So I bit the bullet and decided to buy a New 52 title. I miss reading about Kyle Rayner (Haven't read a title featuring him--let alone a Green Lantern title--since Blackest Night), so I thought it might be worth jumping on.

If I wanted to give you an example of an utterly average comic, I'd show you Green Lantern: New Guardians 21. The art was pretty good, but nothing spectacular. The story was fun sci-fi type stuff, but you could pretty much drop any character into Kyle's shoes and lose nothing. The main reason I enjoyed Ron Marz's Kyle when I started reading in the 90s was the focus on his personal life balanced with his superheroic adventures. There's a scene where Kyle--in conversation with Carol Ferris--actually packs up his apartment and basically says he'll be doing the superhero thing full-time. So, seriously, what's here to like?

Please tell me someone else enjoyed this. I'll be rereading the comic soon and would love to come at it from a new perspective that might remind me of why I like Kyle in the first place.

Kyle hasn't had a double life since Ion maxi-series. Ever since his mom died he's been full-on with the GLC.

By the way is Kyle still with Soranik or has she ended up like his previous girlfriends by now?

Wouldn't be surprised as any woman who ends up being Kyle's girlfriend suffers a horrible fate.

No. She's still alive, but during War of the Green Lanterns they broke up. The reasons for the break-up were pretty much Soranik along with GLs others attempted to kill Sinestro with Kyle standing in their way. Then pretty much afterward, they continued the argument and Kyle said the unfortunate words of, "Back off talking to my girlfriend." Soranik then really got pissed and dumped Kyle then and there.

It was really stupid, and since then Soranik has been regulated to cameo appearances here and there.

I suspect Soranik will end up being killed very soon like Alex, Donna and Jade at some point as we all know Kyle's girlfriend's always end up getting it.

The funny thing is I thought she got New 52ed to make Sinestro "younger", but she showed up during First Lantern crossover. I doubt she'll be killed due to being Kyle's gf more because DC just craves more death.

:-(

She was a great new version of Katma Tui without the baggage... okay new "daddy issues" baggage.

This title will focus on Kyle and the Templar Guardians (also adding additional meaning to "New Guardians") as something of a space exploration series. I suspect his White Lantern status will factor in so he's not as interchangeable as it may look so far.

Personally I liked the art this issue.

well before the reboot, they broke up because Kyle didn't see her when the Star Sapphire showed him his true love, he saw Jade...

I wonder how that works out now that Jade doesn't exist anymore...

I stopped reading Green Lantern Corps after the first arc and Green Lantern New Guardians after the Zero issue. Have they referenced Kyle's relationship with Soranik at all? Come to think of it, have they referenced Soranik's connection to Sinestro in the New 52?! :smt017

they really haven't referenced her that much, she's been in group shots and background stuff... i think the latest issue of GLC has some focus on her...

So she escaped the obvious Kyle curse then?
