*sniff* Man, I NEVER got to play Candyland with a cool stranger in a cape. Life is SO unfair.
I'm betting the Phantom Stranger totally uses his mystic powers to stack the deck so that Helen Jordan wins.
"I NEVER got to play Candyland with a cool stranger in a cape."In our world, Sally, that's probably for the best.
The only thing better would be getting to see Starman yell "Yahtzee!"
I dunno. When the Phantom Stranger plays Candyland you just know it is one of those cosmic game boards where the pieces are really super heroes and the dice are plot-furthering devices where each roll is the harbinger of a cataclysmic event.He probably got it at Darkseid's garage sale.
Two more images for you, from the following issue: here and here. That's how cool Helen Jordan is: she hangs out with the Phantom Stranger, just looking up at the stars.You know how I can tell you're charmed by Helen? Because you haven't bothered to joke about how she finally found someone who is smart enough to play Candyland with her. Helen has that effect on us all.
I'm not "charmed by Helen"; I'm charmed by the Phantom Stranger.
I read it as 'Phantom Stranger playing Candyland with Hal Jordan' before opening the image, then I thought 'Well, it makes more sense than chess.'
Still more proof that while awesome things can happen in books starring Hal Jordan, they almost never have anything to do with Hal himself.Helen Jordan seems cool. I hope she actually gets to exist in continuity again someday.
I love anyone who fights crime in a fedora: the Phantom Stranger, the Spirit, Midnight... Hmm, that's all I can think of at the moment.Perhaps that's future theme for you, Scipio: Heroes in Hats!
Oops! The Question should of course be on that list of fedora-wearing crime-fighters.
