** [[spoiler:The Alpha Lanterns are a subversion. They never turn evil of their own volition, so far it's only been when under the control of an outside force (such as Cyborg Superman or Krona). Mind, the idiotic decision to deaden their conscious minds makes the manipulation a cakewalk.]]

However, in 1959 , after the successful reinvention of the Flash, DC Comics revamped the title with a sci-fi bent, reimagining the hero as test pilot turned space cop Hal Jordan, who was given a Power Ring by a dying alien who crash landed on Earth (and was just one of many extraterrestrial peacekeepers serving the wise Guardians of the Universe). What most people know of the character originated during this era: the villainous Lantern renegade Sinestro, the living planet Mogo, alien drill instructor Kilowog, and aerospace entrepreneur/love interest Carol Ferris. Other characters were brought in as Green Lantern during this time. Lovable jerk Guy Gardner first appeared, was PutOnABus, then came back full time during the Crisis. Stoic architect and former U.S. Marine John Stewart became a backup Green Lantern during the well-known "relevant" Green Lantern/Green Arrow issues, and then the main Green Lantern in the 1980s when Hal Jordan gave up the title. Alan Scott would also return, first as an Earth-2 counterpart to Hal, then after continuities got merged in the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' as a respected elder hero with only the loosest connection to the Corps.

** Sinestro ''himself'' played the Starscream as well, back when he was still a Green Lantern. He had major plans to dethrone and murder his superiors, the Guardians, due to his belief they were doing a poor job running the universe ([[JerkassHasAPoint which]], [[Comicbook/BlackestNight all things considered]], [[JerkassHasAPoint probably isn't far off]]).

** Although [[Comicbook/BrightestDay recently]] it's been revealed that current forms of the Guardians aren't natural for them at all, but rather a result of some weird process that makes them ultra-powerful midgets. Most exemplified by [[spoiler: Krona]], who was tall and buff mere years ago, but now [[HollywoodEvolution has evolved himself]] into a Guardian form. If the Zamarons did the same, they would probably look like the female Guardians.

* RaceAgainstTheClock: One or more of the [=GLs=] face deadlines like this from the Guardians or some local authority often enough; in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', for example, they are given 24 hours ''to save the universe.''
** In the 1981 miniseries, ''Tales of the Green Lantern Corps'', the [=GLCs=] only had 24 hours to stop Krona and Nekron, after the Central Power Battery was destroyed.
** In ComicBook/BlackestNight, Ganthet reveals that any Lantern's Power Ring can deputize someone for 24 hours.
