My Favorite Photos of 2011: Green Lantern Kitty

Here we have perhaps my favorite favorite photograph — more than the cyclops shark and more than the frozen bubbles — an actual living cat glowing with bioluminescence. Yep, this cat glows with internal light.

Now, before you go turning off your room lights, this kitteh is special. Scientists splices his genes with the cells that make a certain jellyfish glow naturally. The result is an unearthly greenish aura around this cat — who, I stress, was not harmed by the process.

My little green buddy looks ready to join the Green Lantern Corps!


The actual Green Lantern comic books have included a feline critter, but he is not nearly as lovable: Dex-Starr the Red Lantern! As a member of the Red Lantern Corps, Dex-Starr is powered by rage, and…er, vomits Rage Plasma, a corrosive red fluid that is very nasty and very powerful, and can reduce you to a skeleton in seconds. Needless to say, you don’t want to cross Dex-Starr!
But I’m sure out friendly experimental cat wouldn’t hurt anybody. Unless someone used his photo for a really bad LOLcats image.

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
