The Green Lanterns published by DC Comics is one of their longer running comic book series. Green Lanterns have had several changes and several different persons bearing the ring over the years but has always remained a best-selling comic and has retained its popularity throughout the years. The Green Lanterns have been adapted to television, video games and motion pictures.
The first Green Lantern Character and Green Lantern comic book, began in 1940, starring Alan Scott as the Green Lantern. This unique superhero sprang out of the mind of Martin Nodell. Alan Scott/Green Lantern usually fought common criminal’s and a few supernatural entities, Solomon Grundy and Vandal Savage to name a few. The Green Lantern was aided by a Lantern he found during a railway accident. The Lantern spoke to Alan telling him it would bring him power! From this power he crafted a ring, which would need to touch the Lantern every twenty-four hours for charging. The ring enhanced the powers of Alan Scott but would not directly affect wood products.
Hal Jordan became the next Green Lantern but was reinvented from head to toe with a new origin story. Hal Jordan’s received his ring through an alien, was given a new look and was a member of the Green Lantern Corps, an interstellar law enforcement agency overseen by the Guardians of the Universe.
The 1960s, Guy Gardner was introduced and was the second choice to replace Abin Sur as Green Lantern of sector 2814. Gardner was a candidate to receive Abin Sur's ring, but Jordan was closer. This placed him as the "backup" Green Lantern for Jordan. Tragedy struck early in his career as a power battery blew up in his face, putting him in a coma for years. During the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Guardians split into factions, one of which appointed a newly revived Gardner as their champion. Because of his years in a coma, Guy was emotionally unstable, but he still was able to somewhat managed and to fight valiantly. He has gone through many changes, including wielding Sinestro's yellow Guardian power ring, then gaining and losing Vuldarian powers, and readmission to the Corps during Green Lantern: Rebirth. He later became part of the Green Lantern Honor Guard and oversees the training of new Green Lanterns. Gardner is designated as Green Lantern 2814.2 within the Corps. Guy Gardner also helped lead the defense of Oa during the events of Blackest Night, which led to a unique role and highest rank in the Green Lantern Corps-Sentinel, answering directly to the Guardians themselves.
The next few Green Lanterns consisted of comic book greats John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz, Jade, Thaal Sinestro and Jediah Caul. Each Lantern began in different ways, some with new outfits, but each one stood for justice!
