Guy Gardner, Green Lantern, suffered at the hands of an abusive drunkard father, when he was young.
That changed for the New 52 relaunch. And Guy Gardner had a less cartoony, more nuanced relationship with his ex-cop father.
Rather than physical abuse, it seemed far more about mental abuse. Bullying with words, with attitude, with expectations. The drink was still there but fists were no longer raised.
Well, today in Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps, on a faraway planet, Guy Gardner has cause to remember his father again. And it's back to the original version rather than the New 52 reboot version.
Why Dr Manhattan felt he had to change this aspect of Guy's life in the New 52 reboot, and in the DC Rebirth, we do not yet know…
Ooh, he knocked an eye out.
