The Hero, the Lady, and the Giant Yellow Pterodactyl Tuesday!

Courtesy of Showcase v1 #23!

Green Lantern, Philosopher....



Carol Ferris, Manipulative Shrew....



And Giant Yellow Pterodactyl....



It's yellow, like ALL pterodactyls were! And that happens to be Green Lantern's one weakness! Curse the luck!



I was never a big nut about dinosaurs, but I didn't realize you could just sock one of them in the face and they'd get all wounded about it and leave you alone. I think the next time you run across someone who is really into dinosaurs, you should hit them with this factoid and not back off of it, no matter how angry they get. Just insist that you've seen documentation of such a thing with your own eyes.

What fun! See you tomorrow!

I swear, Hal Jordan's solution for *everything* is to punch it in the face.

Hey, what works, works! At least for Hal.

I've seen so many pterodactyls in comics, both on the cover or in the contents of a comic book. apparently, they come in all colors of the rainbow. :P
I've even seen a violet one! :P
It seems as if they were the favorite token beast for comic book writers to use when they ran out of things for people to fight.
"Oh darn it, I can't think of a villain for this hero/group to fight... oh I know, I'll use a pterodactyl! everyone knows that they're very common in this world... just look at all the other series that sold with them in it."

Hal, that pterodactyl's mouth looks suspiciosly pink! Shoot it in the mouth!

Yeah, he should have had some "Pterodactyl Repellant" handy! Much more believable. Oh wait, no, that was Batman and the shark.

Sorry, my bad.

Wow, DC sure loved that "Lois Lane" theme, didn't they? She didn't like Clark, but liked Superman. Carol treats Hal like this, and even Barry Allen's got to deal with his girl comparing him to the Flash!
