The Ranger

(Click image to enlarge)

The Ranger is the vigilant protector of Manhattan.  He never sleeps, and therefore is a regular in Manhattan's late night scene, although you're much more likely to find him in a neighborhood joint than at a trendy nightclub.  His personality is as big as the city he protects, but like most New Yorkers there is humility to his bravado. There's a multi-cultural feel to him that's directly related to the many different nationalities that inhabit the world's most populated island.

As New York City is the nation's largest melting pot, the Ranger is one of the most diverse Guardians in his interests.  He loves meeting people from other parts of the world and loves spending time in other iconic cities across the globe, but it's never long before "the city that never sleeps" calls him back home.
Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
