One of my favorite DC couples is Guy and Tora. I don't know why, but there's just something so frickin' adorable about the couple. And this story, from Justice League Quarterly, is one of my favorite stories concerning them.

The original story is twenty-four pages long. I have eight here.

The gang decides to go to a restaurant. While there, Guy and Oberon get in a fight. Bea and Tora leave the table to avoid the fight and hang out in the restroom. While they're talking, something weird happens with the amulet, and Ice transforms into the monster seen on the cover. She attacks Fire and then starts to destroy the nearby buildings.

The General manages to free Oberon, but is stopped by Guy when he attempts to knock out the Ice!Monster.

Petey, who is a recently hired consultant of the JL_, is attempting to calm the monster down by speaking to it in its own language. He succeeds, explaining that Ice was possessed by a demon that had been trapped in the amulet for a thousand years. Once he explained the situation, the demon agreed to evacuate Tora's body. Max agrees to hire Petey on a more permanent basis, since he did such a good job.

And that is why Ice/Guy is such an amazing couple.

That was awesome! Hopefully Guy and Ice can get some more time together once Blackest Night is done.

Amazing they'd keep it going this long. Or not. This is DC, after all.

Wait -- they're actually still a couple? Isn't Tora dead? Dayum. I have to admit that I quit following DC many years ago (more a money thing than an editorial statement). Anyway, I loved these two together after 'A Date With Density". *gigglesnort*

Edited because I fail sometimes.

Tora was brought back to life in Birds of Prey. I think "Dead of Winter" is the appropriate trade. They've done some stuff with Ice and Guy since then; they've had moments in Green Lantern Corps post-Sinestro Corps War and worked together in Blue Beetle 25.

I've always liked the "Birds of Prey" stuff I see here. Thanks for the info!

Yeah, you should really pick that particular trade up. For a little extra incentive:

"Dead of Winter" is one of the best BoP stories, since it's the Birds fighting/teaming up with the Secret Six. (Especially since Harley Quinn was on the Six's roster at the time.)

She was dead, and came back to life somehow. She has appeared in Green Lantern Corps, even paying Guy a visit on Oa. Their relationship is strained due to Guy wanting her to move to Oa with him, and Tora wanting to remain on Earth. I'm looking forward to seeing their subplot continued, but as of this point, Tora's a Black Lantern, and Guy's a Red / Green one, and in their respective parts of the universe, so their relationship isn't going anywhere for now.

D'awww. This post has just made me a Guy/Tora fan. Though I am, of course, still a Fire/Ice fan as well.

Also, I totally thought The General was Captain America in a weird costume at first. 0.o

Yeah, that reminds me. Did Ice ever find out about that fling? I don't think she'd mind (since she was dead and its the 2 people she loves most) but its never brought up and its like it never happened.

Depends. Her superhero costume is flameproof but occasionally if she's in civvies and uses her powers she'll be named after.

Regardless though when in flame form she looks naked-ish (you can't see anything however).

My friend claims she did a porn site after this league folded. Is this true ?

Yesh. More or less. (sadly not a real website, I checked)

She'd go into fire form and sell pictures of herself posed as such. She's never actually naked but people think she is and apparently buy stuff from her site.

They are truly OTP.

Guy and Tora should get married and move in next to the Reyes family.

I've read someone that Fire and Oberon knocked boots. LOL! Wonder if they acted out any Snow White fantasies.
