1. If the Monkey god chose Gar to be his Beast Boy would he have been able to give Gar those powers without the Martian blood transfusion? Or did the Martian blood act as a necessary catalyst for the power of a god?

I ask because, in the small amount of screen time we have gotten from the Monkey god I think we can conclude that he is impulsive or at least mischievous enough to see that there was a kid with Martian blood and say "let me take advantage of this." Rather than having seen Gar and "chose" him before the Martian blood thing.

Of course this does not mean that he would have just done nothing with Gar at all if Gar had never gotten Martian Blood. You never know :)

2. Would Gar s skin turn green after the Monkey gods tampering or before?

Greg responds...

1. That's been left intentionally vague by the Monkey God, assuming there is a Monkey God. But I'd say both were required.

2. Again, these things aren't mutually exclusive. Define "tampering". We don't know how many times Monkey bit Gar, either before or after his transfusion.
