One More Reason I Like J'onn J'onzz...

Well, I've been pretty down on this whole Brightest Day thing.  But yesterday, when I was reading Brightest Day #6, it did give me yet one more reason to like J'onn J'onzz:

Look!  The squirrel is trained how to point!  He's a keeper, all right!

Now, come on, what other big shot JLA superhero is going to take time to stop and talk to the squirrels?  Superman?  I don't think so.  Batman?  Nuh-uh.  Green Lantern?  Nope.  As we know, J'onn J'onzz has a long history with cute furry animals as sidekicks, so it's good to see him living up to that history.  Maybe he'll take on the squirrel as a sidekick.  I think that could work.

"Did I get any new fan mail today, S'quirrel?"

Yes, I think that should work out quite well.

I for one vote in favor of the squirrel side-kick!!

I love squirrels, and I'm glad to see the forgiveness in J'Onn's heart for the Human Squirrel. However, credit where due, the Green Lanterns Corps counted Ch'p of H'lven among their number. A finer squirrel I have never known.

Yes, but where was the GL Corps when poor C'hip got run over by a truck? If that happened on J'onn's watch, there'd be nary a squirrel in peril.
