Green Lantern Corps | Comics

As the Guardians of the Universe’s age old attempt to create a unique inter-galactic peace keeping force that will serve justice and maintain order, the Green Lantern Corps were born. Picking up worthy candidates from around the galaxy, the Guardians armed them with a magnificent weapon; a power ring of Ion that is fueled by the willpower of its bearer.

Over time, the corps has enlisted many alien species to its rank including a few humans from earth.

All the Lanterns chosen from earth managed to make a name for them and among whole corps, Hal Jordan is considered as the greatest of them all. Kyle Rayner has also made it large to be remembered as one of the greatest. They were also members of JLA, Justice League International and various other teams. From Crisis on Infinite Earths to the Sinestro Corps War, the Lanterns always made their stand against evil’s way.
