Green Lantern Costume Ideas

The Green Lantern is one superhero who has been around for awhile. The real name of the very first Lantern is Alan Scott and his original comic book appearance happened all the way back in July 1940!

He is also known as the Golden Age Green Lantern and is one of the founding members of the Justice Society of America.

Actually, he's not just one superhero, but actually several superheroes who all have a power ring and power lantern. The Green Lantern Corps is the name of the extraterrestrial (or intergalactic) police force all the Lanterns are a part of.

The power ring is often called the "most powerful weapon in the universe" because it is limited only by the bearer's imagination - the ring will create whatever the wearer imagines!

Green Lantern's Oath:

In brightest day…in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight! Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power—Green Lantern's light!
Hal Jordan (New Earth)

Some other of the more prominent Green Lantern's alter ego's are:

  • Hal Jordan (Silver Age Green Lantern)
  • Guy Gardner (Bronze Age Green Lantern)
  • John Stewart (Bronze Age Green Lantern)
  • Kyle Rayner (Modern Age Green Lantern)
  • Simon Baz (Modern Age Green Lanter)
