Rocket Raccoon and Ch'p



Although some illustrators chose to depict Green Lantern Ch'p in a cartoony manner, I preferred  it when artists like Don Newton would draw him more realistically.  There's something I like about the smaller members of the Lantern Corps. I guess it's the juxtaposition between their tiny appearance and the incredible power that they wield.

I agree it's really fun to see the small GL's. Bzzd is my 2nd fave lantern. Always thought it was clever to partner him up with ny fave Mogo. Big and smallin rhe same sector :)

Such a logical team up! Now if I can think of a logical counterpart to Lockheed from the X-Men I can suggest it...

Firestorm. Lockheed and Martin

A fitting team-up, indeed, as Ch'p was initially illustrated like a raccoon! At least, in the GL Corps article for the original run of DC WHO'S WHO!

One of the best teamups I could ever imagine happening. I love it!

@ Linneman: You might love Spidey and the Femforce a little more. ;-)

Derek - Though not as fitting as this team-up (at least, not in the same way), I think it might be interesting to put Lockheed together with Detective Chimp. That personage's ability to understand the language of any animal would give the reader some interesting insights into Lockheed's thought processes.

On the other hand, if you really want similarities, maybe Lockheed could team up with Gleep (from Myth Adventures).

Thanks! Detective Chimp and Lockheed would be cool for that aspect of being able to understand each other, and given Heed is an Agent of SWORD there could be a logical reason for working together if there was an extra-terrestrial aspect.

Outside DC though I would adore a Lockheed-Spyro team up, two little purple dragons who both know how to kick butt. Or Heed facing off against Smuag in the dragon version of David and Goliath.
