Storyline

The Green Lantern actually refers to a number of different characters who all share one thing in common; a special power ring. This ring is one of the most powerful forces in the universe and so long as the wearer has the required strength and willpower they can gain access to all this power.

The original Green Lantern was Alan Scott and he found a magical lantern from which he was able to create a special ring. The ring was powered by the lantern and needed to be recharged every twenty four hours. In later stories of the Green Lantern these rings are not magical but instead created by advanced technological know-how from an alien race.

The most famous Green Lantern was probably Hal Jordan. He was a test pilot and was given the power ring by a dying alien. Possession of the ring now meant that Hal was a member of the Green Lantern Corps; this is a special police force that keeps law and order across the universe. This Green Lantern went on to create the Justice League of America.

One of the most recent Green Lantern’s is Kyle Rayner. Kyle is trying to make a living as an artist when he is approached by the last Guardian of the Universe and asked if he would like to become the Green Lantern. Kyle was not as fearless as the other Green Lantern’s but this is also one of his strengths because fear is needed to defeat one of the Guardian’s most dangerous enemies - Parallax.

The Good Guys

Alan Scott was the first Green Lantern. He came across a special green lantern that contained a powerful force that had landed on Earth many thousands of years ago. This force was able to help Alan Scott become the Green Lantern by providing him with special powers. He can fly, walk through solid objects, create strong energy forces, paralyze people, and can even read their minds.Alan Scott used this new power for the good of mankind by taking on the bad guys.

Hal Jordan was the next Green Lantern. He was giving the power ring and green lantern by a dying alien. Not only did Hal use his new powers for good but he also went on to found the Justice League of America; an organization devoted to protecting society from the bad guys. Unfortunately Hal fell under the spell of Parallax for a while, but was eventually able to free himself to continue his fight with the good guys.

Guy Gardner became had been a potential recipient of the ring and green lantern from the dying alien, but Hal Jordan had been chosen because he was nearest. Guy became friends with Hal and he began helping out on missions. He was later given his own power ring and became a Green Lantern.

John Stewart worked as a backup for Hal Jordan. He is one of the few green lanterns who does not wear a mask.

Kyle Rayner is a freelance writer who was chosen by the last Guardian of the Universe to become a Green Lantern. He is not as brave as some of the previous holders of the lantern, but he has his own good qualities.

Jade is the daughter of green lantern holder Alan Scott. She has many of the same abilities as her father.

The Bad Guys

There have been many Green Lanterns and there have also been many enemies. Here are some of the most memorable enemies that the Green Lantern has needed to face.

Parallax is one of the most terrifying villains of all time. He is very strong and can even change reality and completely control people’s minds. One of the favorite Green Lanterns, Hall Jordan, even became Parallax. This monster is as old as time itself and it depends on fear and hatred to survive. For many millions of years the Guardians were able to keep it dormant, but when it escaped it caused havoc.

Tattooed man was once just a sailor and petty criminal until he was exposed to some strange chemical. After this he had the power to create real objects from just chemicals. He tattooed his arms with this strange chemical concoction and now he is able to cause a lot more mischief than in the past. Tattooed man quickly came to the attention of more than one Green Lantern.

Evil Star was able to cheat death by somehow taking the energy from stars; he is now immortal. He also has superhuman strength and can fire powerful energy blasts.

The Gambler has become an expert at the art of gambling and he has also learnt a few other tricks along the way. He is great at firing guns, throwing knives and he is a master of disguise. He became bored with gambling after a while and decided that he wanted to enter the world of crime. It was then that he came to the attention of the Green Lantern.
