Take Away Everything

Take away all the good stuff, and what's left is a normal schmuck.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
A person is going on about a supermodel or celebrity or athlete or popular kid in school. They say, "Take away--" listing several attributes that make this person so great, e.g. looks, wealth, ability--and then finishes up with, "And what do you have?" or "Whaddaya got?" And some wiseass in the room shoots back, "You". Could be a subtrope of [1] and [{Green-Eyed Monster]].

    Not sure if this is exactly what the OP is talking about; but when Guy Gardner forfeited his Green Lantern ring after losing a bet with Hal Jordan, he tried reinventing himself a few different ways but eventually conceded that "without the ring, I'm not quite the tough guy I thought I was". So he sets out on a quest to recover Sinestro's yellow power ring.
