Super Hero Biography #6 (Guy Gardner[ Not Green Lantern yet]) {earth 1 pre crisis}

Super hero biography

Today’s post is requested by a friend and fellow “internetainer” Qawy.  Here’s his “You Tube” channel where he does speed art and entertaining videos: Mr.HotIce Productions 1

 

Guy Gardner was born the son of Roland (Rolly) Gardner and Peggy Gardner. Guy had a tough childhood, being often beaten by his abusive father (jerk).  However, Guy tried very hard to impress his father, even going to the extent of building a radio out of scratch. However, his father only appreciated the achievements of Guy’s brother, Mace. Guy’s only escape was reading comics such as General Glory. He even modeled his hair after General Glory’s sidekick (as seen below).  As Guy got older, he began to grow disgruntled with his father. He started causing trouble at school and later ended up more times than not on the wrong end of the law.  He got into trouble for starting fights and stealing cars.  As a result he ended up in juvenile hall very often.  When he became a legal adult (18 years of age), his criminal life caught up with him. A couple of flat foots (police) caught Guy trying to steal a car.  However, instead of taking him to jail, the officers took him to see his brother (Mace) who had enlisted these men to help straighten Guy out. Mace gave him a wad of cash to get him started.  This was the starting moment of Guy’s new path. He soon went to get a job. So, to start out, Guy got his G.E.D. (General Education Diploma). He also began an education at the prestigious University of Michigan (U of M), where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in psychology and education. Unfortunately upon his return home he found things worst then ever. His brother had been kicked out of the police force for extortion of several drug dealers his brother ended up drowning himself in the local river due to depression. Due to this his father’s drinking habit went out of control killing him in the process. Guy always had anger management issues and used this to motivate himself to help other people in his position. He became a social class worker and helped out prison inmates. One such inmate was Hal Jordan(later Green Lantern) he was in prison for an alcohol problem. While in the middle of a prison riot, Guy angrily attacked an inmate. In the end, Hal had to drag Guy off.  Guy left his job after this incident as it was only making his rage and aggression worse. Guy’s new job was as a P.E. teacher and he loved this and the kid’s loved him for he was their favorite teacher.  Around this time the dying Green Lantern(intergalactic space police force dedicated to peace and justice) of sector 2814 (that would be our neighborhood) crashed on our planet Guy was one of two local men chosen as he and the other man had indomitable will. However, he was too far away so Abin Sur (the crashed Green Lantern) instructed   the ring to pick the other man Hal Jordan.

Superhero Biography #4 (Captain Britain [Brian Braddock]) {I}

Superhero Biography

Brian Braddock was born in the quaint town of Maldon, Essex Britain.  He lived a quiet life with his family consisting of his parents, a twin sister and an older brother. After his parents’ deaths Brian went to study at Thames University in London. During a term break, Brian worked at Darkmoor research facility. While working there, he was attacked by the villain known as the Reaver, whose intent was to kidnap scientists to sell them to dictators. Brian escaped on his motor bike to get help. However the Reaver intended for the scene to appear as if the scientist died in an explosion and ran Brian off the road, causing him to drive off a cliff.

 

Brian was fatally wounded but awoke to the sight of Merlyn and his daughter’s, Roma’s, images speaking to him from the sky, asking him to choose  between the “The Amulet of Right” and “The Sword of Might” to save his life.  Brian decided he wasn’t much of a fighter and so the picked “The Amulet of Right” and became CAPTAIN BRITAIN. He easily defeated the Reaver’s men but the Reaver grabbed “The Sword of Might” and likewise transformed. Despite this minor setback Brian still was able to defeat the Reaver and save the scientists.  Since then, whenever Captain Britain is needed, Brian would just touch the amulet and become Captain Britain! Or so it was this way for awhile… watch out for part 2 and so on.

 

Captain Britain’s powers and sources of his power:

Originally, Brian’s powers stemmed from “The Amulet of Right” giving him a list of powers including:

  • super strength
  • stamina
  • agility
  • manifestation of his Star Sceptre

 

He also was given the Star Sceptre by Merlyn from the original staff of Merlyn. This item grants him more abilities including:

  • force fields
  • energy blasts
  • flight for up to 15 minutes
  • increased super strength
  • extension of the sceptre to be wielded as a staff

Superhero biography #1 (The Lone Ranger)

Super Hero Biography

In, today’s post we will be learning the story of an ex-Texas Ranger: The Lone Ranger.  John Reid is the western super hero known as the Lone Ranger (and also the great uncle of the Green Hornet).  This all started during a manhunt for Butch Cavendish with his father and brother.  Cavendish gunned down the whole party but miraculously John survived and was nursed back to health by a native American named Tonto.  Realizing he was the last Texas Ranger, he named himself the Lone Ranger and fashioned a mask from his brother’s shredded shirt.  After bringing Cavendish to justice, he decided to make it his life’s mission to fight crime.  Tonto decided to be his partner.  The Ranger’s main horse, Silver, became his horse after the ranger saved it from a raging buffalo.  The Lone Ranger has two Colt .45  pistols loaded with silver bullets, this being due to his code (one of his strong beliefs being that his silver bullets, like life, are precious and not to be wasted).

The Lone Ranger Code

Throughout all of The Lone Ranger’s history, his code of ethics has remained the same.

I believe…

  1. that to have a friend, a man must be one.
  2. that all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.
  3. that God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.
  4. in being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.
  5. that a man should make the most of what equipment he has.
  6. that “this government, of the people, by the people, and for the people,” shall live always.
  7. that men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.
  8. that sooner or later…somewhere…somehow…we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.
  9. that all things change, but the truth, and the truth alone lives on forever.

I believe in my Creator, my country, my fellow men.

Can you guess who the next biography will be on?

Today’s fun fact is about James Buchanan Barnes, better known as “Bucky”.  In the original comics, instead of falling of a train he was blown up by a missile and was presumed died.  In reality he was found without his left arm, by General Vasily Karpov and the crew of a Russian patrol submarine.   He was revived in Moscow but suffered brain damage and amnesia as a result of the explosion.  Scientist attached a bionic arm and continued to upgrade it as time went on.

Winter Soldier

Bucky as Captain America

Programmed to be a Soviet assassin for Department X, under the code name of Winter Soldier, he was sent on covert wetworks missions, i.e., missions involving assassination, becoming increasingly ruthless and efficient as he killed in the name of the state. While a Soviet agent, he also had a brief relationship with The Black Widow.   While not on missions, he was kept in a cryogenic tube.  Thus he had not aged much since World War II.  Eventually Captain America found him and told him to remember who he was.  Regaining his memories, Bucky became overwhelmed by guilt over his past actions and left.  Eventually he joins S.H.I.E.L.D.  After Captain America was killed in action,  Bucky took over as the new Captain America.  Afterwards, the original Captain America returned from the dead and Bucky was presumed dead.  Actually Bucky had taken Nick Fury’s Infinity Formula and become the Winter Soldier once more.
