** It's worth noting (and is noted in the comics) that love is on the far end of the emotional spectrum (along with Rage) and the further along you are, the more power the emotion has over you.

** It's looking more and more like the Krona and Relic arc from Lost Army will end up as one of these.

** Kilowog is the most depicted alien Green Lantern. If there's a storyline involving the Corps, you can bet Kilowog will be there and prominent.

* UnfortunateNames: John Stewart was originally to be named "Lincoln Washington" thanks to Julie Schwartz. Neal Adams explained to him why it wouldn't be appropriate:
-->I get the script. First page of the script I read it. Heís an architect. Good. Heís out of work. Makes sense. A black architect, not being able to go to work. Very sensible. Name, Lincoln Washington. So I go to Denny. ďDenny, Iím guessing you didnít name this character.Ē Denny says no. Iím guessing Julie named the character. He says yes. I go to Julieís office and close the door. Julie. Lincoln Washington. (Julie says) ďWhatís wrong with that name? I know lots of guys with that name.Ē That maybe true, but itís what we call a slave name.

* NemesisWeapon:
** The renegade Lantern SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} originally wielded a ring that was composed entirely of the "yellow impurity" in the standard-issue GL rings. In more modern continuity, Sinestro and his Sinestro Corps wield rings that tap into fear, the antithesis of the willpower the modern Green Lantern rings tap into. Further, under Creator/GeoffJohns's tenure, this was expanded into six other Lantern corps that tapped into other emotions, some of which were Nemesis Weapons to one another, including Black Hand and the Black Lantern Corps, whose rings drive them to ''consume'' emotion on the grounds that the blackness of death is the absence of emotion.
** And in the old days, Hal Jordan also contended with Evil Star, whose weapon contrasted Hal's ring by making its wielder evil and insane while Hal's ring reflected Hal's supposed fearlessness.

** ''Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'' has a few references to Hal. The Ferris Air field makes an appearance several times in ''Series/TheFlash2014'', one time making reference to a test pilot going missing. In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' a flashback taking place in Coast City shows a man in a bar wearing a flight jacket with the name Jordan on it.

However, [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks 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 [[SpacePolice space cop]] Hal Jordan, who was given a [[RingOfPower Power Ring]] by a dying alien who crash landed on Earth (and was just one of many extraterrestrial peacekeepers serving the wise [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness 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. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold 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 [[AlternateUniverse 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.
