List of the Green Lanterns
Of course all the die hard Green Lantern fans know that the name, doesn’t just represent one character, but in fact numerous characters have been depicted, and not just as Earth’s guardian either, but there is whole universe full of them, there literally is a whole Lantern corps of thousands out there. So we found this great video that has a pretty comprehensive list of the Green Lanterns and it will help the uninitiated better understand the sheer scale of the number of superheroes who bear the title Green Lantern.
So as we said the green Lantern Corps is a group of intergalactic aliens who recruit sentient life forms from different parts of the universe to maintain peace, stability and law and order, the corps were in turn founded by a race of immortals known as the Guardians Of The Universe. And how various people from Earth were inducted into this legendary group is a long story, starting when a dying alien named Abin Sur crashed landed on Earth in search of his replacement,which is selected by the ring which acts as a conduit for the immortal Guardians Of The Universe’s designs, which in turn led him to the fearless test plane pilot Hal Jordan who go on to become the most iconic Green Lantern from Earth if technically the first, that honour would go to Alan Scott a character from the Golden Age of comics who although not initially part of the overall story arc was in recent years retconned to be a part of the Green Lantern continuity, but these two would only be the first of many including the likes of the abrasive Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and John Stewart.
The Green Lanterns are all incredibly powerful superheroes and the source of their power is their rings, which are considered by some to the be one the most powerful weapons in the universe. The Lantern Corps has an operating strength of 7200, and each of those members has a Lantern ring, so you really don’t want to mess with these guys. With the ring each lantern has incredible powers such as granting the wearing the power of flight, superhuman strength, it can create force fields, as shoot energy blasts, it also grants the wearer the ability to phase through solid objects such as walls and the user can also summon mental constructs(these vary in in shape and design and are only limited by the skill, willpower and imagination of the user), the ring can also time travel(again it depends on the skill of the user), it can create wormholes and spacial rifts and it is a universal translator aswell as a galactic encyclopaedia. The Green Lantern rings are absolutely amazing, but there are a few drawbacks, firstly you must be selected to become a Lantern by the Guardians Of The Universe, which is pretty special in itself because they only choose people of incredible willpower and with the ability to conquer fear, secondly the energy inside the rings must be constantly replenished either from the central power battery or from the individual Green Lantern power batteries which are shaped like green lanterns funnily enough. And one last precaution is that each ring is only programmed to except one wearer at a time, making them useless if stolen.
The Green Lantern is one of the founding members of the Justice League of America along with other influential and iconic superheroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter. but even alongside these illustrious names, the Green Lantern is amongst the most powerful of the Justice League members.
