* NamesTheSame: Shares a name with another Volthoom, who was either (In the pre-Crisis Earth Three) a monk who gave the villainous Power Ring his eponymous weapon, or (In the post-Crisis Anti-matter Earth) a benevolent mystical being who resided within the villain's ring. Of course, he may possibly be that person's mainstream counterpart...

Of course, he may possibly be ''Green Lanterns'' #18 revealed that person's mainstream counterpart...the current version of Earth-3's Volthoom was created by a version of [[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperheroes Mordru]], using a piece of this Volthoom's soul to create the Power Ring. Meaning that the First Lantern and Earth-3's Volthoom are indeed the same person.



* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Volthoom came from the future of the doomed Earth-15, and was sent into the Multiverse using a device his mother created called a "Travel Lantern" (the Lantern he had with him when he first met the Guardians) to find a way to save their Earth from destruction. Volthoom has spent untold years travelling the Multiverse trying to find a way to save his Earth, but got sidetracked by becoming the First Lantern before he lost his sanity.]]



* TimeAbyss: Has been around since Krona looked into the past, 10 billion years ago.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: He trains obsessively to become a Green Lantern, not understanding how it truly chooses it's wielders.



* ItsAllAboutMe: His biggest problem: He thinks everything's about him. His first action once [[spoiler: Mastering the Phantom Ring and accessing Will is to parade around a Hal Jordan statue as the "new Green Lantern". ]]




to:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He makes a racist comment to Tom Kalmaku and seems to resent Simon for being a Muslim Lantern.
* PowerIncontinence: [[spoiler: He can't control the PHantom Ring at first, the various emotional powers overwhelming him. A pep talk/berating from Volthoom convinces him to turn it around.]]

!!Frank Laminski / Phantom Ring


Added DiffLines:

An unpleasant test pilot who worked at Ferris Air, Frank Laminski spent his whole life being ignored and unwanted by everyone. When he was saved from a plane crash by a just-recruited Hal Jordan, Frank set his sights on becoming a Green Lantern himself, no matter what it took.

* AscendedExtra: Originally he was just a jerkwad pilot Hal had to deal with in ''Secret Origin''. In Sam Humpries' run, he suddenly becomes much, much, much more important.
* ComboPlatterPowers: [[spoiler:The Phantom Ring grants him all the powers of each of the Lantern rings save Black and White.]]
* ICouldaBeenAContender: He came within mere ''seconds'' of getting a Green Lantern ring of his own, it was even halfway through the usual introduction, right up until the ring (which being a merger of Sinestro's and Hal Jordan's was acting off) realised he ''didn't'' have sufficient willpower, changed its mind and went for Simon instead.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: His main drive in life is to become a Green Lantern, and then become a hero so people will respect and acknowledge him. Once he gets his hands on the Phantom Ring, he tries becoming a hero, only for it to become clear he has no idea how to act heroic at all.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's introduced making a racist comment to Tom Kalmaku, and later makes some incredibly skeevy remarks about Carol Ferris.
* TheMentallyDisturbed: By the time of his reappearance in the Sam Humpries run, Frank's showing signs of major obsessive tendencies, with his desire to become a Green Lantern overriding a lot of concerns, like his own health, not to mention an utter lack of empathy or concern for anything beyond his own gain (for example, setting a woman's house on fire just to draw Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz's attention) while there's a child in the house. He also has severe issues with attention.
* ParentalNeglect: His parents ignored him constantly as a child. It's part of the reason for his attitude.

* BiggerBad: Arguably the Biggest Bad in the entire DC universe. His experiment to see the creation of the universe backfired spectacularly, creating numerous parallel universes as well as the Anti-Matter universe; originally, this was said to have been the origin of evil itself, but if that probably counts as CanonDisContinuity it still makes him responsible for the Anti-Monitor, the Weaponers of Qward (and by extension, Sinestro) and a host of other horrors. Its recently been revealed that he's also the boss of [[spoiler: Parallax, and the other emotional entities]] and was responsible for [[spoiler: the Manhunters going rogue]]. More accidentally, he was once sent to Nekron's realm. The impossibility of an immortal in the realm of the dead gave Nekron his first glimpse into the physical universe and started his streak of omnicidal mania (Krona was all too happy to help him at that point anyway). He's actually the reason the Guardians of the Universe even exist, as the Oans became this to atone for Krona's sins.
** BigBad: Became this directly during the War of the Green Lanterns, where Krona poisoned the GL corps by placing Parrallax's fear energy in the main battery. Hal eventually beat him though.
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim: After being revealed to be OnlyMostlyDead in the pages of Red Lantern, he is unceremoniously killed off-screen by Abysmus.]]

[[folder: The Third Army]]
---'''Homeworld:''' Various

After deciding that the universe has grown too chaotic and that the Green Lanterns have failed in their mission, the Guardians of the Universe decided to create a new force to forever unify the universe in their image of perfect order. The Third Army was created through the power of the First Lantern and the Guardians' own flesh. They spread like a plague, converting anyone they can get their hands on into members of the Third Army to eventually replace all life in the universe.

* AssimilationPlot: The goal of the Third Army was to convert all life in the universe into them.
* HiveMind: All of the Third Army are linked to the Guardians. The Guardians can see what they see and control them telepathically.
* MeaningfulName: The Third Army is the Guardians' third creation in bringing order to the universe after the Manhunters and the Green Lantern Corps.
* MundaneSolution: The Third Army cannot convert Lanterns while they still have their rings. The most efficient correction to this is to rip off the Lantern's arm with the ring still attached. The old arm will be replaced during the conversion anyway.
* NonOntologicalInertia: When Volthoom gets his freedom, the first thing he did was retake the power used to create the Third Army, reducing all of its numbers to nothingness.
* RuleOfSymbolism: Everything about the Third Army's design is symbolic of the Guardians' desires for the masses, as several Lanterns discuss. They have no mouths, so they can't talk back. They have no eyelids, so they can only see and understand. Their brains are exposed, so the Guardians always know what they're thinking. Their hearts are expelled from their bodies, so they can feel no emotion.
* WindowsOfTheSoul: The only thing that remains unchanged when something becomes a member of the Third Army are their eyes. However any life or recognition is robbed from those eyes, showing nothing is left inside.
* TheVirus: If a member of the Third Army can get a hold of you, they'll convert your flesh until you become a member of the Third Army yourself. A Lantern has immunity to this so long as they wear their rings.
* ZergRush: The biggest threat the Third Army presents after a while are its numbers. Eventually people are fighting for their lives against endless ranks bent on converting them.
