The Predator, being as it is a reflection of Carol Ferris’ “inner masculine drive,” is sort of the first transsexual supervillain, albeit only in a weird Bronze Age sort of way where issues of gender had to be addressed with space magic. (Marvel would later refine the concept with Vamp, the pretty girl who turns into a male monster thing, and make the whole gender-changing thing a lot more explicit.)
What’s weird about the Predator is that, when Carol Ferris split off into herself and the Predator, the Predator immediately started trying to get with her. Is that supposed to be a reflection of her masturbatory urges or something? I hate it when supervillains make you want to check psychology textbooks to see if they make any sense. (Invariably they don’t.)
And of course, this being a Green Lantern villain, he is woefully underequipped to fight Green Lantern. No superpowers, no awesome weapons, not even anything made of yellow. Hell, at least Javelin had a yellow costume. Predator doesn’t even have that. Which means that in order for him to have ever posed a threat to Green Lantern, someone’s going to have to come along and revamp him.
What I’m saying is that I live in dread of the day Geoff Johns decides to revamp the Predator for the modern era.
