My brother Jeff (aka The Fster) is a huge nerd for any of you dogs who don't know. He watches shows like Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. If that wasn't bad enough, he also collects and reads comic books...and he's 22!!! I could let this slide if I the Fster was like 6 or something...but he's freaking 22!!! I'm a puppy and I'm too old for that garbage. Anyway, Jeff started to tell me about his favorite comic book character. Listen up dogs...this is going to be good!
The Fster's favorite comic book character is the DC Comic do-gooder Green Lantern. He told me about him and it did sound interesting. He's a traditional comic hero with a sci-fi twist. This is where it gets good though. There is not only one Green Lantern...but five, yes, five main Green Lanterns!!!! Plus, there is a whole Green Lantern Corps. Wow, I got to hand it to you DC Comics, that was smart thinking. They were clearly a head of their time and figured that if Green Lantern ever gets turned into a film, they can hire different actors every sequel and not have to pay the original actor more money. Wow, genius!
Jeff told me that his favorite Green Lanterns were in order, Hal Jordan followed by John Stewart followed by blah blah blah. Apparently, the kid thought I cared. I'm a dog Jeff! If you give me your comics to eat, we'll talk; if not, get lost until you find a milkbone to give me!
That's when I got a genius idea from The Fster's jibber jabber. Why can't I be a Green Lantern!!! DC Comics, take note! Demon Flash Bandit and I want to be Green Lanterns! You could just use us as extras in the Green Lantern Corps., we don't mind! You have like billions of Green Lanterns! I think a lot of people here on Dogster would buy a Green Lantern comic if me or Demon graced it's pages! It would at least give the Fster a good reason to buy those silly comic books. He wonders why he can't get a girlfriend. ::lol::
Then I started to think...you know, there are a lot of superheroes with the word 'green' in their names. The Green Lantern, the Green Arrow, the Green Hornet, and the Green Mask. With the exception of a few superheroes with White, Black and Red in their names here and there...green seems the dominant color character name! Geez comic book guys...throw us a superhero with Purple in his/her name! Is that so much to ask?
Hum...you know green is the color of money. Let's not forget about DC Comics latest character to get his own series, Booster Gold. That's right, Gold is his name! It's like DC is trying to rub our wet noses in it! We get it DC Comics CEO, you're rich!
I think a comic should be made about me! Marvel, made freaking Howard the Duck...HOWARD THE DUCK. A character based on a duck, nature's D student!
Pretty soon DC or Marvel is going to make a comic titled "Burnout the Mystical Hippie". You heard it here first guys (so don't steal it DC or Marvel! This is Angel Zoom Smokey's character!). Oh! He has a dog 'sidekick' (who is actually the hero much like Underdog or Krypto) who saves the stupid Mystical Hippie. The dog will give out puppy slaps of justice to anyone who messes with her owner. Oh yeah, the dog is a girl like me.
This is actually a good idea...I think I might write it! Any of you dogs interested in the comic, let me know and I might see about making it! If I get enough support...I'll make the comic (with the Fster's help of course).
He will have an arch nemesis...but I'll save that if enough interest in the comic is raised! Needless to say though, one of the villains would be a bird named The White Bomber...I think you humans know why. I thought, you know...there's enough great tragic comic book characters (Batman, Spider-Man to name a few)...why not have a silly one?
So...you comic book nerd dogs and owners let me know what you think!
Peace out my fellow dogs!
