to me he is my favorite green lantern and the best i like even better when he is ion
this is for the bad guys who like kyle evil:)
this is for the good guys like me :)
now here is the coolest version of kyle as Ion
thought i'd bump this because i am sick of people PM'ing me or leaving comments on my page asking why i'm such a big fan of Kyle's when Hal, John or Guy are so much cooler...
let me list the reasons i like Kyle...
To me, Kyle's most defining characteristic was his complete unwillingness to give up.
When Parallax beat the ever living crap out of the entire DCU, then Kyle is left to fight him alone on Oa, Kyle might not be able to beat him in a fight, but he destroyed a planet (which he didn't expect to survive the explosion of) to stop Hal's plan.
In Parallax View Hal just beat Kyle half to death across the city, took his ring, then beat the entire JLA and Superman, Kyle goes after him with a lead pipe because he's not dead yet and he's not going to give up.
In the Obsidian Age he willingly lets a Manitou Raven rip out his heart, because that's the only way to win.
In Tales of the Sinestro Corps: Parallax when all else fails he stabs Parallax in the eye with a friggin pencil.
Being Green Lantern has brought Kyle a lot of pain, he's lost a lot of loved ones... but he never freaking gives up.
Is Hal a better GL? Yes.
Is John smarter than Kyle and just as skilled artistically? Yes.
Is Guy tougher and more badass than Kyle? Yes.
But Kyle will never ever give up, he will fight to the bitter end, no matter what it takes.
Not to say Kyle isn't a damn good Lantern. He's had combat training from Donna Troy, and Orion... Gods taught him how to fight, for a time he was a GOD, and he willingly gave that up... That's willpower that can't be beat!
OH! I give mad respect to Kyle. He is my favorite GL and despite the retcon they did with the Ion story, he will remain so. He and Jade are one of my favorite couples. I love how he handles himself and I'm glad they didn't choose to make him a Hal clone. Those two clashing are some of the best panels. He might not always make the "right" decisions by some standards, but in the end there's no one tougher. There's no better GL.
And just because I have to say it... yes, I think he's hot. One of the few... I mean few... comic chars that I think that way about.
