Ed's Notes: An one-time girlfriend of Guy Gardner, followed by being a 
one-time girlfriend of Hal Jordan when she thought Gardner was dead... (didn't see the truth of THAT, huh? Didn't see him coming back?) Then she left Hal when he came back, but Gardner was never the same, so... Ended up with neither. (Short version. Lol) Madame Xanadu she's not, but could be an interesting conflicted ally for a PC group with a Green Lantern in it.

One weird thing... And I talked about this a bit in the Aquagirl entry as well... I swear... Almost more than any other character I can think of, no two artists could seem to agree on what she actually looked like. Because, above she seems... Well... Normal. An average, even nominally attractive looking woman for a supporting cast member.

She's also been drawn really cute:

But then, also like this...


So what's the deal? Can some artists just not draw exotic or something? Not to be shallow, I truly do believe that all women are beautiful, but does that last picture look like someone a dude-bro like Guy Gardner would date?!

First Appearance Green Lantern Vol 2 #117 (June, 1979)


  1. In fairness, Joe Staton has never once drawn a female face that I thouhgt was attractive.

    1. Yeah, wow... I'm googling some of his work now... I don't know if i'd go as far as you do here, but... yeah, it's inconsistent at best, and there are some pretty *a-hem* PLAIN looking faces there. Dang.
