Any relation to Guy Gardner?

Based his appearance here on Jake McDorman's portrayal on the HBO miniseries?

Likely mixed that in but primarily the comics and movie

Concept for Earth 27 story line: Someone uses the DNA of the Fables characters to replicate their healing factors, and in the process revives all the dead Watchmen characters as their agents.

Was he the superman of the group?

in the comics, he certainly tried to be the symbol, sans powers. being an ex-Marine certainly helped. however, based on supplemental material, he was racist, classist, and closeted, so he was kind of a failure in that regard.

In his partial defense, being all this was seen as the norm back in the 1940's.

I felt bad for him after he died in that car crash. He might of been trying to relieve the glory days when he tried to start up Crimebusters. I still was shocked he was in a secret relationship with Hooded Justice who was the dom of the relationship because of his style in a mission.

The line, it is drawn

The curse, it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is

Rapidly fadin’.

And the first one now

Will later be last

For the times, they are a-changin’.

-Bob Dylan

Excellent work on all of these. Detailed and retro looks.

Before Superman, Metropolis was protected by Captain Metropolis.
fairly certain that in Earth-27, Metropolis didn't exist until after the Manhattaning. Metropolis was built on the ruins of New York City, many other of DC's fictional cities starting out the same way(Coast City/LA, Star City/Seattle, National City/Washington, DC, etc).

It existed. It just wasn't a... well, it wasn't a metropolis.

I take it from that explanation that Metropolis had some dark days back then.

I stand corrected
