Publication information Publisher DC Comics First appearance Showcase #22 (September 1959). Created by John Broome (writer) Gil Kane (artist) In-story information Base(s) Oa Roster See:List of Green Lanterns The fictional Green Lantern Corps is the name of an intergalactic police force featured in DC Comics. The Green Lantern Corps patrols the reaches of space at the behest of the Guardians of the Universe, a race of immortals. The Guardians created the Green Lantern Corps some three billion years ago and the force has survived multiple rebellions, murders, and collapses from within and outside. The Guardians administer the Corps from the planet Oa at the center of the universe. The Guardians divided the universe into 3600 “sectors” and choose two natives of each sector to serve as that sector's protectors. Thus the Corps holds 7,200 members, plus additional numbers serving in roles not linked to particular sectors (such as drill instructors and the honor guard). Each Green Lantern is given a power ring, a weapon and artifact granting the bearer incredible power limited only by their willpower.

At this time they were tall greyish blue humanoids with black hair. They became scientists and thinkers, experimenting on the worlds around them. In a pivotal moment, billions of years ago, a Maltusian named Krona used time-bending technology to observe the beginning of the Universe. However, this experiment unleashed disaster upon all existence. Originally, the experiment splintered the Universe into the Multiverse and created the evil Anti-Matter Universe of Qward. Following the retroactive destruction of the Multiverse, it was revealed that Krona flooded the beginning of the Universe with entropy causing it "to be born old". The male Maltusians argued about how to
deal with the situation. One group decided to dedicate their eternal existences to contain evil; this group fractured into the Guardians of the Universe and the Controllers. The females, however, saw no need to involve themselves and, since the Oans were by then immortal and had no more need to reproduce, left their mates and became known as the Zamarons. Relocating to the planet Oa at "the center of the Universe", the Guardians dedicated themselves to combatting evil and create an orderly universe. During this period they slowly evolved into their current appearance.  Manhunters-"Massacre of Sector 666" Main article: Manhunters In their first attempt to enforce their will and guard against menaces of all sorts, about 3.5 billion years ago the Guardians created a legion of robotic sentinels called the Manhunters. At first serving faithfully to enforce order, in time the Manhunters came to resent their servitude and the moral restrictions the guardians decreed of them. They were also found to be inherently flawed due to their inability to recognize or feel emotions. They rebelled against the Guardians and fought a millennia long war that culminated with an attack on the planet Oa. The Guardians overcame their android servants, stripped
them of their power, and banished them across the universe. Eventually, the surviving Manhunters formed their own robotic society and pursued their own interpretation of their original mission (which often included interfering with and foiling the plans of the Guardians). In the Martian Manhunter series, the Guardians first get the idea for an intergalactic police force from the Martians' own Manhunters. They offer the Martian race the opportunity to be that force. The Martians turn it down, but the Guardians take the name for the androids. In Green Lantern: Secret Origins, it is revealed that the Manhunters suffered from a malfunction in their logic. This led them to believe that order could only be achieved by eliminating all life. They rampaged through Sector 666, massacring trillions in the process. The only survivors banned together to form the Five Inversions, swearing revenge on the Guardians for the actions of their creations.  Creation of the Corps Chastened by the failure of the Manhunters, the Guardians decided that their newest force of soldiers for good would consist of living beings, ones who had free will and strong moral character. To arm this new legion of celestial knights, the Guardians created the Power Rings, rings of inconceivably-advanced technology that allowed their wearers to project green beams of energy with which the bearer could conjure objects of any size or shape, limited only by their imagination and willpower. Although the connection between the Guardian Oans and the origin of the Green Lantern symbol has yet to be clarified, it has been revealed that the lantern itself has its roots in the first life in the universe. Allegedly, the first life in the galaxy emerged on an unnamed foggy world, and when they developed a police force - the first in the universe - the constabulary carried a lantern lit with a green chemical flame, hence a corp of Green Lanterns. It is intimated that this idea was adopted and spread throughout the galaxy as a symbol for law and justice and its ability to pierce confusion and uncertainty, eventually resulting in the formation of the Green Lantern Corps, with requisite Power Rings and Lantern-shaped batteries along traditional lines. Initially consisting of only a few dozen agents at a time, the Corps radically increased its numbers approximately 1000 years ago. The Guardians sought to bring order to the planet known as Apokolips. Home to Darkseid, a galactic tyrant, Apokolips was and is a stronghold of evil. Green Lantern Raker Qarrigat sought to remove Darkseid from power, only to be humbled by Darkseid's might. Raker returned to Oa, where he convinced the Guardians that taking Apokolips would require an army. Authorized to start a massive recruitment, Raker and his fellow Lanterns inducted thousands of new members, bringing total membership up to 3600.  Crisis and aftermath Both the Corps and the Guardians suffered casualties during the Crisis on Infinite Earths. The Guardians' failure to take appropriate action during the Crisis led to their decision to depart Oa in the company of their female counterparts, the Zamarons. Left to their own devices, the Corps underwent a major reorganization. A team of Green Lanterns led by Hal Jordan was stationed on Earth, and the system of assigning one Green Lantern to a sector was temporarily abandoned. The decision of the Corps to execute Sinestro resulted in the activation of a previously unknown fail-safe that depowered the rings of every Green Lantern except for Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Gnort, and Ch'p. The Guardians eventually returned to Oa and began the reconstruction of the Corps, assigning Guy Gardner to Earth, John Stewart to the Mosaic World, and Hal Jordan to recruit new members. Ironically, Jordan himself would eventually be responsible for destroying the incarnation of the Corps that he had helped create.  Fall of the Corps The Green Lantern Corps patrolled the DC Universe for over three billion years. In that vast length of time, some Green Lanterns rebelled and turned against the Corps. A rogue Green Lantern, Universo, was briefly shown to exist in the future epoch of the Legion of Super-Heroes, but multiple retcons have long since eliminated this possible future. Two of the most important fallen Lanterns were Sinestro, the rogue Green Lantern, and Hal Jordan, who would unknowingly become possessed by Parallax, the ancient fear parasite trapped in the Battery. At the ruins of his home Coast City, Jordan was consumed by grief, which in turn allowed him to be overcome by fear... all the while not knowing that his fear was tainted by the creature Parallax. The Green Lantern Corps ranks were decimated by the Parallax-possessed Jordan. The Corps' power source, the Central Power Battery, was drained by Jordan; and Oa was destroyed, removing the original power source for the rings. After the fall of the Corps, other organizations tried to fill in the power vacuum left by the Guardians. Two organizations had initial notable successes: the Darkstars and L.E.G.I.O.N. However, neither ever achieved the power and reach of the Green Lantern Corps.  The Lost Lanterns The Lost Lanterns were a group of Green Lanterns that tried to stop Parallax from reaching Oa. Parallax defeated them in space and after Parallax destroyed the Corps, they were assumed to be dead. Instead, they were captured by the Manhunters and taken to Biot, the Manhunter homeworld in Sector 3601. They were used in various experiments to design and power new Manhunter models. They were eventually found and rescued by the resurrected Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner. They rejoined the Corps, albeit with some difficult adjustment. Despite learning of Parallax's possession of Hal Jordan, many still blame him for their captivity and cluster to themselves when summoned to Oa.  Rebirth of the Corps In an attempt to redeem himself after his actions as Parallax, Hal Jordan sacrificed his life reigniting the sun, whereupon Oa and the Central Power Battery were completely rebuilt by the physical manifestation of Jordan’s dying will channeled through his old friend and confidant Thomas Kalmaku. Shortly thereafter, Kyle Rayner, having absorbed the power of Parallax and Oblivion, became Ion. Ion funneled the remaining energy left in the sun that was once the immortal Guardians back into the Central Power Battery, which allowed them to be reborn as children of both genders. It was later discovered that Hal Jordan had been possessed by the living embodiment of fear, an ancient parasite called Parallax. Parallax had been imprisoned within the Central Power Battery for billions of years and is the mysterious "Yellow Impurity" within the Corps' green light that leaves them vulnerable against yellow. Hal Jordan, upon learning the truth about Parallax, separated himself from it and was reborn as a Green Lantern once again. Jordan, with the help of John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, and Kilowog, reimprisoned Parallax. Upon Parallax's return to the central power battery, the Guardians continued the re-construction and expansion of the Green Lantern Corps. This new Corps, under the training of Kilowog, Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, and other veterans, was primarily composed of new recruits. Only a handful of veteran Lanterns remained in the ranks. Each sector has two Lanterns assigned to protect it (with Hal Jordan and John Stewart assigned as the protectors of Sector 2814). Due to an ancient pact with the Spider Guild, the Vega star system is off limits to all members of the Corps. The new Green Lantern Corps presently lacks both the manpower and the political influence it once had due to its years-long absence from many sectors. This has left the Corps currently unable to intervene in situations it might have before Parallax destroyed the old Corps, including conflicts such as the Rann-Thanagar War. The Guardians remain staunchly uninvolved in what they see as a conflict that could destabilize many sectors, but that has not stopped Kyle Rayner and Kilowog from helping refugees. Despite these difficulties, the Corps played a key role in defeating Superboy-Prime. Several Lanterns were killed slowing the renegade Superboy's advance on Oa, a sacrifice that enabled Earth's most powerful heroes to execute their plan to restrain him. Mogo, a sentient planet and Corps member, positioned himself to act as a final battleground between Superboy-Prime and two Supermen. Responsibility for imprisoning Superboy-Prime was undertaken by the Guardians who charged the Corps with its undertaking, incarcerating him inside a small red Sun-Eater with fifty Green Lanterns on constant guard duty. "Prime Duty" is considered one of the lowlier functions of the Corps, and Guy Gardner was sentenced to a month of such duty for one of his frequent rules infractions. As of the "One Year Later" timeframe, the Green Lantern Corps had increased its numbers, with many former trainees now full-fledged officers. A lack of truly experienced GLs remained an issue, with Guy Gardner being called upon often to assist the rookies.  Sinestro Corps The Sinestro Corps gather on Qward.Main article: Sinestro Corps Rogue Green Lantern Sinestro, working with the Anti-Monitor, has created his own version of the Corps. Dubbed the "Sinestro Corps", it recruits beings capable of generating great fear. Armed with yellow Power Rings and Lanterns manufactured on Qward, the Sinestro Corps recently staged an attack on Oa, killing dozens of GLC officers, kidnapping Kyle Rayner, and freeing Superboy-Prime, Parallax, and the Cyborg Superman from the Corps' supervision. As the Sinestro Corps' campaign of terror spreads, the Guardians, in desperation, rewrite the first Law of Ten in the Book of Oa, enabling the remaining Lanterns to use lethal force.  The Blackest Night Main article: The Blackest Night Hidden in the Book of Oa is the forbidden chapter of Cosmic Revelations; in Cosmic Revelations is the prophecy called the "Blackest Night". In the prophecy, seven different colored corps are at war with each other and will eventually destroy each other and the universe. Following the Sinestro Corps War, Ganthet and Sayd are banished from the Guardians. Realizing that the "Blackest Night" prophecy will come to be, they create a blue ring powered by hope. The remaining Guardians have created the Alpha-Lanterns and will be revealing the new laws to the rest of the Green Lantern Corps as time goes on. The seven corps involved in Blackest Night, sorted by prism color, include: Red Lantern Corps. Created by the remnants of the Empire of Tears, their power rings are fueled by the red light of rage/hate. Atrocitus is the first to become a red lantern and also was the one who forged the Red Central Power Battery which stands before a great lake of blood on the prison planet of Ysmault. A former "lost Lantern," Laira, is quickly recruited as well. Another recent member includes Dax-Ur, an alien cat who is the first to attack a member of another corps. Upon putting on a charged red ring, the wearer's heart is destroyed and ejected in vomit, as is the wearer's blood. The ring then pumps liquified rage into the body, which is also ejected through the mouth. Although the Red Lanterns have been seen creating energy constructs most of their energy blasts appear as flame which can burn in space. They have their own separate oath: "With blood and rage of crimson red, Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead, Together with our hellish hate, We'll burn you all-- That is your fate!" Orange Lantern Corps. Their rings are powered by the orange light of avarice (greed) which was being sought by the Controllers. Green Lantern #39 introduces the corps as well as the revelation that the Orange Central Power Battery is located on the planet Okaara in the Vegan star system. The Orange Lantern Corps are quite different from the other corps in that, Larfleeze (referred to as Agent Orange by the Orange Light) is the only physical Orange Lantern. Originally the rest of the "Orange Lanterns" are those who were killed for attempting to take Larfleeze's Orange Power Battery for themselves. Their greed sealed their fates, and their deaths results in the creation of an Orange Power Ring under Larfleeze control. Now, all beings that have their identity consumed by the Orange Light are remade as twisted versions of themselves. They can create their own constructs but most enjoy consuming or tearing apart their victims. While to this date it remains to be confirmed, it appears that their own oath is simply the word "Mine". The Sinestro Corps. Created by Sinestro and the Anti-Monitor, their power rings are powered by the yellow light of fear. The Yellow Central Power Battery is located on the planet Qward. They have their own separate oath: "In blackest day, in brightest night, Beware your fears made into light. Let those who try to stop what's right, Burn like his power... Sinestro's might!" Green Lantern Corps. Created by the Guardians of the Universe, they were the first corps to be formed to serve as protectors of all sectors of space. Their power rings are powered by the green light of willpower. The Green Central Power Battery is located on the planet Oa. They have their own separate 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!" Following the Sinestro Corps War, the Guardians create a new class of Green Lantern called the Alpha Lanterns. The Alpha Lanterns are seasoned Corpsmen who have been fused with their Power Rings and Batteries. They have their own separate oath: "In Days of peace, in nights of war Obey the Laws forever more Misconduct must be answered for, Swear us the chosen: The Alpha Corps!" Blue Lantern Corps. Created by Ganthet and Sayd, their rings are powered by the blue light of hope. Saint Walker is the first Blue Lantern to appear. The second is an elephant like alien monk named Warth. According to Geoff Johns, there will be a Blue Lantern walrus named Baboo. Blue Lanterns appear capable of harnessing the hope of those around them to fuel their abilities, such as reviving a dying star and saving an entire planet by harnessing the hope of the individuals on the planet. Unlike the Green Lanterns, whose constructs are determined by the one creating them, the Blue Lantern constructs are based on the mind of one they are being used on. The Blue Central Power Battery is located on the planet Odym, which orbits what humans call the North Star. Saint Walker indicated that Ganthet and Sayd intend for Hal Jordan to leave the Green Lantern Corps and become the new leader of the Blue Lantern Corps. Walker is mistaken, as Ganthet intends Jordan to lead them as a Green Lantern and to be their power source.They have their own separate oath: "In fearful day, in raging night, With strong hearts full, our souls ignite When all seems lost in the War of Light Look to the stars... For hope burns bright! Indigo Tribe. The Indigo Tribe wield staffs powered by the indigo light of compassion. The wielders resemble shaman and tattoo their bodies with the symbol of their Corps. They didn't make their presence known but they appear to be neutral in the war helping injured on both sides. It remains to be seen if they'll have their own oath and where their Central Power Battery is located. They are currently being sought out by the Blue Lantern Corps. It has been revealed that the leader of the Indigo Tribe is a woman named Indigo. The corps will be fully introduced in the Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps mini-series. Star Sapphire Corps. Created by the Zamarons and ruled by Queen Aga'po. Their rings are powered by the violet light of love. The Star Sapphire functions as their Central Power Battery located on the planet formerly known as Maltus. The first recruit was Miri Riam of the planet Lartnec, who had just lost her husband to an attack by Mongul. The second Star Sapphire to be recruited is the villain Fatality, who has plagued the Green Lantern Corps in the past. The Zamarons openly take members of other corps (although all female) and convert them mentally into Sapphires, even openly reavealing this to the Guardians of the Universe. In addition to their violet rings the Sapphires also still have their original crystal ,which they themselves cannot see but use to show others their true love.As they are on the direct opposite side of the spectrum as Red, it is likely violet rings have great influence over their wearer as well. They have their own separate oath: For hearts long lost and full of fright For those alone in blackest night Accept our ring and join our fight Love conquers all With violet light! Besides the seven colour corps mentioned above, there's also an eight colour corps that represents the black light of death, the Black Lantern Corps, whose power rings reanimate the dead and draw power from a Central Power Battery built from the corpse of the Anti-Monitor and located on the Dead World of Ryut in space sector 666. The Black Lantern power rings bear the symbol of Black Hand. Since the Black rings symbolize a total absence of emotion and life their power source remains unknown. Black Hand is the first Black Lantern to appear and had already dig the body of Batman. Also the Guardian of the Universe known as Scar has some connection with the Black Corps. Others to be candidates to become a Black Lantern are the Earth 2 Superman, the Martian Manhunter, Firestorm and Aquaman. They have their own separate oath: The Blackest Night falls from the skies The darkness grows as all light dies We crave your hearts and your demise By my black hand The dead shall rise!  Hybrid Lanterns In Green Lantern #37, Hal Jordan is inducted into the Red Lantern Corps; however, he kept his green ring. His red ring asserted dominance over his green one but he was still able to shape constructs out of the fire like energy that the Red Lanterns use, essentially turning him into a hybrid Red and Green Lantern (though his uniform was that of a Red Lantern). In issue #38 Saint Walker of the Blue Lantern Corps is able to free Hal by inducting him into the Blue Lantern Corps. After fighting off both Atrocitus and Sinestro, Hal is revealed to have been turned into a hybrid Green and Blue Lantern (with a uniform that reflects the change); it is possible that the unique connection between green and blue light might make this the only true hybridization of Corps. However, the green and blue rings appear to be clashing with each other, with Hal constantly trying to assert dominance over the blue ring. At this time it is unknown what would happen if Hal were to give into the blue light.  31st Century In the future shown in the Legion of 3 Worlds miniseries, it is revealed that Mogo has been long dead and without him, there is no way to distribute the rings and thus no Green Lantern Corps in the 31st century. Rond Vidar was the last Green Lantern until he was killed by Superboy-Prime. Sodam Yat is the last Guardian of the Universe, living on the now ruined Oa. Previews for Legion of 3 Worlds #3 show Yat taking on several rings of the fallen Lanterns with a new oath: "In brightest day, through Blackest Night, No other corps shall spreads its light! Let those who try to stop what's right, Burn like my power...Green Lantern's light!" In the original Legion continuity, the Green Lantern Corps were banned from Earth, thanks to the actions of the Green Lantern who became the Legion adversary, Universo. With recent alterations to this future continuity, it is unclear if this ban still exists. Similarly, the Guardians were revealed as still on Oa in the original continuity; their fate in the revised continuity has yet to be revealed.  Structure  The 3600 sectors The Corps is an organization of 7200+ Green Lanterns (the old Corps was composed of 3600) who are chosen by the ring for being able to overcome great fear, with two assigned to each sector of space that require the protection of more than one Green Lantern (Earth, home to Hal Jordan and John Stewart, is in Sector 2814). Heavily-populated Sectors like 2814 can have several Lanterns. While the primary Lanterns of Sector 2814 are Hal Jordan and John Stewart, Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner call Earth home, but are stationed on Oa, first as teachers, and then specially assigned to cases that are too difficult for the average GL. The official number of active Lanterns apparently does not include backup members who are kept in reserve to be called to active duty on short notice in the event that the regular Lantern in their particular sector is not available. In the original organization, the active list was apparently kept at a strict maximum considering John Stewart was not mobilized during the Nekron crisis despite the situation's dire nature. The Green Lantern Corps fighting Superboy-Prime, with the two Supermen, Power Girl, and the Martian Manhunter. Cover to Infinite Crisis #7. Art by Jim Lee.Each member has a great deal of autonomy as to their methods in their jurisdiction, subject to review by the Guardians if they feel the Green Lantern in question has abused their assigned authority. The individual Lanterns are responsible for arranging their replacements (when possible) if they are near retirement or death. If a Lantern dies before that obligation is met, the ring will find and seek another trainee on its own. The planet-sized Green Lantern named Mogo plays a key role in this, helping to direct the rings to suitable recruits. For this reason, the Sinestro Corps tried to destroy Mogo during the Sinestro Corps War. In rare circumstances, Guardians will personally go out into the field to recruit a replacement. The recruitment of backup Lanterns is more ambiguous with different criteria such as the second closest worthy candidate to the dying Lantern in an emergency search is automatically designated, such as the case of Guy Gardner. When the sector's Lantern was still active, the Guardian would make a selection of a backup on their own, as with John Stewart's recruitment after Gardner was injured in an accident. Hal Jordan disagreed with this selection upon seeing Stewart's apparently belligerent attitude, but the Guardians stood by the decision and the recruit quickly proved himself. Upon recruitment each Green Lantern in the original Corps received a Power Ring, a Power Battery shaped like a lantern (with which the ring is recharged), and a uniform. The default uniform design for humanoids was a green section covering the torso and shoulders, black arms and leggings, green boots, white gloves, green domino mask, and a chest symbol of a stylized Green Lantern icon on a white circle. Lanterns were allowed to customize their uniforms as long as the color scheme and the symbol were present. When the nature of the being precludes a standard uniform, an equivalent arrangement is expected as a substitute. For instance, Mogo, a sentient planet, arranges his foliage to create a green circling band and lantern symbol on his body. Jack T. Chance, a humanoid, refused to wear a uniform, but conceded to wearing a badge on the lapel of his coat. Lanterns were also allowed the option of a secret identity as a security measure and it is implied that the Corps were instructed to honor that choice by taking care not to expose them. Training in the use of the ring was optional and appropriate facilities and personnel were available on Oa upon request. In addition, a senior Lantern can be assigned to coach a recruit while in the field in their sector. The New Green Lantern Corps being built by the Guardians is far more formal and structured than the old one that was destroyed by Parallax. Recruits, after being found by their Power Rings, are taken to Oa for training. Not all recruits will make it through training - indeed a great many of them might even fail, forcing the ring to find another candidate. Lantern trainees have a simplified version of the old Green Lantern uniform (with green covering more of the torso) with the white circle on their chest blank until the Lantern insignia is added upon completion of their training. Additionally, all Power Rings, not just the ring assigned to the interim Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, now work on the color yellow, provided the user can feel the fear behind the color and overcome it. Upon recruitment, a Green Lantern is expected to uphold certain principles of their duty. These principles include: The protection of life and liberty within the assigned sector. Following the orders of the Guardians without question. Noninterference with a planet's culture, political structure, or its population's collective will. Acting within local laws and obeying the local authority within reason (presumably, the Guardians' orders can overrule this when necessary). Taking no action against anyone or anything until they are proven to be a threat against life and liberty. Refusing to use the equipment, resources, or authority of The Corps for personal gain. Showing respect for and cooperating with other members of the Corps and the Guardians. Showing respect for life which includes restraint of force unless there is no reasonable alternative. Giving top priority to the greatest danger in the assigned sector. Upholding the honor of the Corps. To enforce these principles, the Guardians closely monitor the activities of the Lanterns. If they feel a violation of Corps regulations has occurred, they will summon the offender to Oa and hold a trial in which the charges are read and the Lantern is allowed to explain their actions. If the Guardians are not satisfied by the explanation, they have a number of disciplinary options which include: Probation. Personal supervision by the Guardians on Oa. Prime Duty (guarding Superman Prime, once held in a ScienceCell on Oa; this terminated after Prime escaped and was expelled from the Universe at the end of the Sinestro Corps War). Temporary exile from the Lantern's homeworld. Ritual Trial of Endurance - a Lantern must attempt a dangerous passage through the Anti-Matter Universe. Expulsion from the Corps. Recently, in response to the Sinestro Corps War, the Guardians have rewritten the Book of Oa (an action formerly considered impermissible} to include ten new laws. Four have been revealed so far. As of Green Lantern #39 they are: Green Lanterns are allowed to use lethal force against members of the Sinestro Corps. Green Lanterns are allowed to use lethal force against any enemies of the Green Lantern Corps. Green Lanterns are forbidden from being a part of any sort of romantic relationship with another Green Lantern (this led to over 200 Green Lanterns leaving the Corps). The Vega System is no longer outside the Green Lantern Corps' jurisdiction.  Oa - Corps Headquarters Oa's defensive systemsGreen Lantern Corps headquarters are on the planet Oa, in the center of the universe. Oa was destroyed shortly after Hal Jordan became Parallax, but was later reconstituted by Jordan's friend Thomas Kalmaku. Formerly a natural if barren planet, the reconstructed Oa is now a vast labyrinthine planet-sized construct. Primary features include a great hall for the Guardians to meet in conference, training facilities for recruits, prisons called Sciencells for dangerous criminals, and tombs dedicated to honoring fallen lanterns. Oa's most prominent feature is the Central Power Battery, a gigantic version of the Lanterns' personal power batteries. The central battery channels the same green energy of the Guardians and amplifies it, broadcasting energy to the individual power batteries across the universe which can then be used to charge the Lanterns' power rings. Particularly dangerous beings, such as Sinestro or Parallax, are sometimes imprisoned within the central battery. Maintaining security on this device is vital as major damage to it would prevent individual Corpsmen throughout the universe from recharging their power rings, thus depowering the entire Corps in a single blow. The Guardians recently increased the capabilities of Oa's defensive systems by creating an armored structure that protects the planet.  Green Lantern Honor Guard and the Crimson Mantle of Command The Green Lantern Honor Guard is an elite group of Green Lanterns, based on Oa but not restricted to one Sector, who serve as leaders of the Corps, troubleshooters and special operatives. The title and mantle of Honor Guard was first introduced in issue #1 of the three part miniseries Tales of the Green Lantern Corps. Amongst their rank were three elite Corps members; Tomar-Re, K'ryssma and Apros who lead three division of the Corps against the armies of the undead. In issue #3 the Guardians promote Green Lantern Hal Jordan as the first human to receive the honor for his heroic actions in leading the Corps in the defeat of Krona and Nekron. Jordan although flattered declines the honor, maintaining that he should be seen as “no different than any other ring-slinger” who did “what any GL would have done given the chance!” Adding that "When it comes right down to it, I guess I'm just one of the gang" and so he remains, to the cheers of his fellow Corps mates. Green Lantern Guy Gardner was promoted to primary membership in the Honor Guard as Lantern number one during the Green Lantern Corps: Recharge miniseries. Guy also serves as field commander during battle. In the aftermath of the Sinestro Corps War, with the Ion entity removed from his body, Kyle Rayner has been added to the Green Lantern Honor Guard as Guy's partner.  The Corpse You've just been inducted into the coldest, hardest, meanest division of the Green Lantern Corps you never even knew existed. Can't handle it? Tough luck, you don't have a choice. We live in the places that are too dark for the light of the Corps. We handle the jobs too dirty for the green. Welcome to The Corpse. —Von Daggle The Corpse in action"The Corpse" is an elite, top-secret Black Ops division of the Green Lantern Corps. Members of The Corpse are not restricted by the same rules that regular Lanterns follow, and they perform the darkest, most dangerous missions. These members do not use Power Rings; instead, they swallow special coin-like disks that give them all of the powers of the standard ring with a charge that lasts five days. These disks produce purple energy instead of the traditional green. Members of the "Corpse" do not wear Green Lantern uniforms, or display the Green Lantern symbol. Instead, they seem to prefer black uniforms that have no symbol. They are also not bound to rules such as the restriction of using lethal force like the main Green Lantern Corps (though since The Sinestro Corps War, the main Green Lantern Corps have been enabled use of lethal force against Sinestro Corps members, and later all enemies of the Green Lantern Corps). Very few Lanterns are even aware of the existence of the "Corpse". Guy Gardner said that in all of his years in the Corps, he never heard of them and after participating in a mission with the Corpse, his memory of them was erased. With the recent authorization of lethal force for the Corps in the aftermath of the Sinestro Corps War, the future and necessity of the Corpse remains unknown.  The Alpha Lanterns Boodikka as an Alpha Lantern, on the cover for Green Lantern Corps #22. Art by Rodolfo Migliari.After the Sinestro Corps War, the Guardians create a new class of Green Lantern called the Alpha Lanterns. The Alpha Lanterns are seasoned Corpsmen who have been fused with their Power Rings and Batteries. Boodikka, Varix, Kraken, Green Man, and Chaselon are all confirmed Alpha Lanterns; Hal Jordan is notably not chosen, and John Stewart is chosen but he declines the position. Geoff Johns stated in an interview with IGN that the Alpha Lanterns function as Internal Affairs for the Green Lantern Corps. Hal Jordan refers to them in the same manner. They have "the sentient drive and thought process of the Green Lanterns and the efficiency and logic of The Manhunters," as the Guardians turn them into cyborgs using Manhunter technology, and mainline their minds directly to The Book of Oa and the Central Battery. After the transformation, an Alpha Lantern would receive an additional power ring and their power battery is surgically implanted into their body so they need never recharge it. Similarly to the most recent generation of Manhunters, Alpha Lanterns have a secondary face which can drain a Power Ring of its energy. The Alpha Lanterns tend to chant the Manhunter-like slogan "No Lantern escapes the Alpha Lanterns". Laira was the first Green Lantern to be punished by the Alpha Lanterns; for the crime of killing Amon Sur she was stripped of her ring and expelled from the Corps. The concept of the Alpha Lantern Corps was conceived by Grant Morrison.  Weapons The Corps' Weapon.Main article: Power ring (DC Comics) The Power ring must be recharged regularly (though apparently not at the standard 24-hour period as was originally described) by touching it to its lantern shaped power battery for a period of several seconds. When recharging their weapons, some Corps members recite an oath. This oath differs from Corps member to member, but the most popular seems to be Hal Jordan's.  Other appearances The Green Lantern Corps in Duck DodgersThe Green Lantern Corps made an appearance in Duck Dodgers in an episode titled "The Green Loontern". After Dodgers accidentally takes Hal Jordan's uniform from the dry cleaners, he is teleported to the Corps location by the ring, where they are in a fight with a large number of Sinestro's robots. During the fight, the entire Corps is kidnapped by Sinestro to act as a power source for a doomsday device. Duck Dodgers manages to save them (more through accident than skill) before giving the uniform back to Hal Jordan and being stranded in Sinestro's hideout. The Green Lantern Corps appear in a few episodes of the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated series, including "In Blackest Night," "Hearts and Minds", and "The Return." Several Corps members also make cameos in the Superman: The Animated Series episode "In Brightest Day," which featured Kyle Rayner. The Green Lantern Corps are featured heavily in the video game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Hal Jordan appears as a playable character and one of the game's major protagonists; the Guardians appear in the game's Oa based stage, and the rest of the Corps members are mentioned to be trying to contain the universe wide crisis taking place during Story Mode. Additionally, Sonya Blade's in-game ending depicts her becoming the Green Lantern of the Mortal Kombat universe after gaining the ring of a recently deceased Corps member. The Green Lantern Corps appear in Batman: The Brave and the Bold in their home planet Oa. In the teaser of "Day of the Dark Knight!", the Corps is having lunch in the cafeteria, and force Guy Gardner to clean up his mess. In "The Eyes of Despero!", they fight against Despero, and Hal Jordan hides them in his ring for protection. Members as seen in the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Return."
