G'Nort

So let's talk about my second favorite Green Lantern. His name is G'Nort. Back in the day he was a giant talking Dog who was incompetent and a green lantern. Actually that was the point. You see there was a group of people with power rings who called themselves Green Lanterns who were giving the corps a bad name. Some of them were incompetent, others were idiots using their powers to move furniture. And it all turned out to be a plot by the Qwardians to ruin the Green Lantern name by giving unwitting aliens Green Lantern rings and letting them loose on the Universe.

Guy Gardner stopped them, but he ended up befriending G'Nort and recommending him to the Green Lantern Corps. G'Nort was accepted as a rookie under Guy's supervision and thus became one of the great comic relief figures of the DC Universe. Because he always defeated evil, just not very well. And everyone found him annoying. So he fit right in the JLI comic books. And then DC Direct made some figures based on the JLI comics.

The thing is, G'Nort has been drawn differently by every artists. He's always a giant dog, but the way that is depicted varies wildly. So any interpretation is as good as another. The one this figure is based on is the one by Kevin Maguire, and is not my favorite. But it's a G'Nort figure. Who cares whose favorite it is.

Articulation is pretty slim. No wait, leg, or feet articulation. But in exchange for that you get a tail that can sort of be spun around in its peg and a mouth that can open and sort of look like a tongue panting.
