Back to [[Characters/GreenLantern the Green Lantern character sheet]].

%%As of this writing, the real oath has not been revealed. That thing with the this my light or whatever is a fake. Please don't add an oath unless it can be directly verified by the comics.%%

->'''Emotion:''' Avarice
->'''Leader:''' Agent Orange
->'''Base of Operations:''' Earth (formerly Okaara)
->'''Entity:''' Ophidian

Powered by the Orange Light of Avarice, the Orange Lanterns are a legion of gibbering phantoms emanated from the mind of Agent Orange, the keeper of the Orange Light. They are constructs created in the image of Agent Orange's victims, whose very identities he has stolen.

* AndIMustScream: Glomulus's actions in ''New Guardians'' lends credence to the theory that all of the Orange Lanterns Larfleeze created are indeed the actual souls of the people he killed and "stole" and not just replicas. Further supported by Invictus, who claims the reason Larfleeze couldn't create a copy of one of Invictus' people is because when they die their soul passes on to other members of their race, so Larfleeze can't copy it.
** Confirmed in Larfleeze's comic book series.
* BackFromTheDead: Once during BlackestNight, and again thanks to [[spoiler:The Wanderer]].
* FightingSpirit
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As constructs, if an Orange Lantern is wiped out, Agent Orange can just make another.
* {{Greed}}
* HiveMind: To a point, anyway. After working with the New Guardians, Glomulus defied Larfleeze to help "Lanternkyle".
* KlingonPromotion: Whoever kills Agent Orange gets to be the new Agent Orange.
* LargeHam: '''MINE!'''
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Every one of the Lantern Oaths rhyme, even [[BlackestNight the Black Lantern Corps]]. Larfleeze, as shown in ''ComicBook/WrathOfTheFirstLantern'' and its GrandFinale... [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment doesn't follow that rule]].
* OddlySmallOrganization: Agent Orange is the first, last, and only true member of the Orange Lanterns; all other members are orange light constructs. And SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor was deputized that one time, but that ''really'' didn't go well. Justified as the orange light embodies extreme greed, so of course the lantern-holder wouldn't want to share the power with anyone else.
* OneManArmy: Agent Orange himself.
* SealedGoodInACan[=/=]SealedEvilInACan: Both, given the vagueness on the backstories of most of the Orange Lanterns.
* {{Shapeshifter}}: The Lanterns are capable of this as they're only constructs.
* ShrugOfGod: Many fans have been asking when the Orange Lantern oath would be revealed. The response was basically "soon" (back in 2010). It's actually taken so long it was made fun of by Lex in ''Action Comics''. It hasn't stopped fans from inventing their own versions and attempting to pass them off as official on Wikipedia.
** Larfleeze's oath is finally mentioned in ''ComicBook/WrathOfTheFirstLantern''. It's as [[{{Greed}} silly]] as anyone would think.
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: Unlike the other colors, the orange light is at its strongest when channeled through a single user.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Larfleeze thinks he did this to the people who enslaved him. His Corps pull this on him several times.
* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Once they are [[spoiler:freed from Larfleeze's ring]], they proceed to argue with one another constantly after they defeat their captor.
* YourSoulIsMine: In ComicBook/{{New 52}} continuity, at least, the Orange Lantern can capture the souls of those killed by the bearer, and these are used to create the "Orange Lantern Constructs".

!Notable Orange Lanterns

!!Larfleeze
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-612819-gl_cv39_super_4640.jpg]]
->'''AKA:''' Agent Orange (also, "Larfleeze" is stated to be an alias; his real name is unknown)
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth (originally Ogatoo, then Okaara)

The only true member of the Orange Lantern Corps. Billions of years ago, Larfleeze was part of a band of theives that stole Parallax from the Guardians. While hiding out in the Vega System (and following a map they also stole), Larfleeze and his remaining men found the Orange Central Power Battery (unlike the others, it's small and handheld). While they began to fight over it, the Guardians and the Manhunters showed up and demanded Parallax. In return, they gave them the Vega System and the power of the Orange Light of Avarice; however because of its nature, the Corps can have only one member (as greed is inimical to sharing) and so Larfleeze killed them all. He makes up for the lack of numbers by making legions of constructs of all the people he has killed (and eaten) over the long, long time of being Agent Orange.

* AGodAmI: After becoming a [[spoiler:living Orange Power Battery]].
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Because of his overwhelming greed, his attention is quickly diverted when something pops up that he decides he wants.
* BigEater
** HorrorHunger: The orange light fills its host with constant, ravenous, ''endless'' hunger. When Hal first encountered Larfleeze, Agent Orange was happily devouring a big table of disgusting, rotten food.
* BlessedWithSuck: Before becoming Agent Orange, Larfleeze was one of five thieves who successfully pulled a heist on the Guardians of the Universe. Afterwards, he has enough power to intimidate the Guardians themselves, but the greed inherent in the orange light cripples his mind to the point that he can rarely think of anything more than food and immediate possessions. When separated from the ring for a short while, the last thing he says before it lands on his finger again is [[spoiler: "Keep it away from me!"]]
* BodySnatcher: Though his constructs are not intended to fool anyone, they're capable of everything their stolen identities could do in life.
* BornIntoSlavery - A small glimpse into his past shown in the Book of Black shows that he was a mining slave as a child. Being forced to compete with the other kids for who gets to eat is implied to have fostered his hatred of sharing.
* CollectorOfTheStrange
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: You do ''not'' want to be the one to tell him he can't have something. ''New Guardians'' shows that he's not only powerful, he can be quite cunning when he wants to be.
** In an alternate reality, Larfleeze succeeded in getting a Blue Lantern ring for himself. With his insanity cured and a limitless supply of energy, he proceeded to murder all the Guardians and plunder all in his wake.
* DelusionsOfEloquence
* DisposableWoman: His incredibly abusive wife that he was paired up with by his masters. It's implied that she either died during a cave-in or by Larfleeze's own hand.
* DrivenToSuicide: After [[spoiler:Sayd hypnotized him into destroying his treasure horde]], he puts himself and Stargrave on meteor headed toward the Creation Point to be incinerated.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Bad Men Love Their Families]]: At his core, he does still harbour a deep sorrow at the absence of the family he loves and hasn't seen for eons. [[spoiler: He does eventually reunite with them in the epilogue of the Johns run, but old habits die hard and he ruins everything with his greed.]]
** Oddly enough, they were highly abusive, demanding, and the only reason they didn't sell him off was because they had all ready sold too many of their children to legally do that.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He is absolutely horrified by the possiblity that he might have actually been [[spoiler:a jailer who helped the invaders that conquered his people]] instead of a slave.
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong]]: Fears that he was this even before his criminal career.
* EvilIsPetty: He has the power to rival most demi-gods, and yet all he does is ''want'' (and take) things.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He could challenge the Joker in being DC's TropeCodifier for this.
* HairTriggerTemper: He gets ''really'' angry when he doesn't get his way.
* HiveQueen
* ItMustBeMine
* LivingWeapon: His personal ring might be this. It has a tendency to pointedly avoid conversation with him for months on end. There's the implication that he might be imagining that it can think, but its own stated reason for its inconsistent speech is that it doesn't like talking with Larfleeze that much.
* MadeASlave: Maybe.
* MindRape: Those that try to attack his mind are subjected to this and can potentially have their psyches "eaten" in return. However, attempts to give him a MindHug are not met with any resistance.
* MultipleChoicePast: Due to his immense age, many of his memories have been forgotten or distorted. He also has a tendency to lie or omit information when he talks about his past. At one point he questions why a vision of his mother would have a different version of what planet he comes from, and is told it's because he doesn't really have the slightest idea.
* PigMan: When first meeting him, Hal thought he looked like a wild boar crossed with [[TheMuppets Gonzo]].
** Though fans tend to say that Larfleeze looks more like a horse or a baboon.
** In his ongoing, he looks like a cross between that and a dog. This resemblance is noted by several characters in the book.
* PsychopathicManchild: At his core Larfleeze is a greedy child with too much power.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Larfleeze is one of the oldest beings in the Universe. This also makes the Orange Lanterns the oldest Corps.
* RedOniBlueOni: Larfleeze's ring is more sane, but greedier. Larfleeze is crazier, but less greedy.
* ShoutOut: During a story framing sequence, Larfleeze is seen hoarding the 7200 rings of the potential Corps, and [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales swimming through them.]]
** Further hammered in when Hal Jordan refers to him as being like "Uncle Scrooge if he had a power ring."
* StartMyOwn: An appropriately bizarre example. After his [[spoiler:original Orange Lantern Corps declare that they will fight him from within his ring, even if he does consume them again]], Larfleeze ditches them and flies off to create a NEW version of the organization.
* StrappedToARocket: How he gets rid of L'aord when he finds out that the demigod is too powerful to be killed.
* TreasureRoom: Larfleeze owns one filled with all the things he's collected over the eons, and is constantly looking to add to it. In the past, he tried to steal the Blue Lantern Corps power battery. He's recently acquired the petrified remains of Invictus, and is also full of orange power rings from all the beings he's converted into constructs.
* VillainousGlutton
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Threatens to dropkick Stargrave into the Big Crunch if he keeps on interrupting him.

!! Glomulus
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Glomulus-1_3981.jpg]]
Glomulus was originally the resident pet in an Okaaran tavern, purchased to keep the place clean by eating scraps off the floor. Then he got some blood on him during a BarBrawl - and decided it was tasty. After eating everyone in the bar, he wandered into the forest, where he encountered and was consumed by Larfleeze.

He's now a part of the New Guardians, as Larfleeze sent him out to find who's trying to take rings from each corps, including (especially) his own. [[spoiler:Or at least, that's the cover story, as Larfleeze manipulated the group into fighting another of his enemies.]]

* BewareTheSillyOnes: He looks like a roughly spherical head with seven spindly little limbs sticking out of it. Before becoming an Orange Lantern, a single taste of blood prompted him to kill and eat an entire bar full of super-powered toughs.
* BigEater: What ultimately caused him to become an Orange Lantern.
* TheQuisling: Immediately turns on the other Orange Lanterns once their [[spoiler:rebellion against Larfleeze fails.]]
* TeamPet
* VerbalTic: Hee!
* YouNoTakeCandle

!!Ophidian the Tempter
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Greed_Entity_3413.jpg]]
->'''Homeworld:''' Earth

The Avarice Entity--the living embodiment of the Orange Light, given life and strength from the envy, gluttony, and greed of every sentient being. Ophidian inhabits the Orange Power Battery and speaks directly to Agent Orange's mind, inflaming his avarice. Because of its supreme greed, Ophidian hates its servitude to Agent Orange.

* DemonicPossession: When people become possessed by Ophidian, they look very similar to those possessed by Parallax.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent
* RuleOfSymbolism: Ophidian is implied to be the same serpent that [[Literature/TheBible tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden]]. Who is considered by some to be one and the same as [[{{Satan}} someone that's associated with light as well.]]

!!Orange Lantern Constructs
* Blume
** {{Cephalothorax}}
** EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: Gave back one planet's entire infant population when its people revealed they do not have any valuables except for their own children. Although he wasn't doing it to be nice. Blume just felt that the babies had no material value.]]
** AGodAmI: Combined with JerkassGods, he demanded people give him their valuables. Although, he wasn't ALL bad. See above.
* Clypta
** DarkActionGirl: Perhaps the most violent and irritable of the group after [[spoiler:her resurrection]]
** NoAccountingForTaste: She's had a longtime crush on [[spoiler:Glomulus]] for years. He does not reciprocate due to not being all that interested and being unable to reproduce that way.
** WreathedInFlames
* Sound Dancer
** ButterFace
** {{Fingore}}: Gets a finger bitten off by [[spoiler:a captive Larfleeze.]]
** StringyHairedGhostGirl: She originally came from the Obsidian Depths so she constantly appears as if her hair is wet.
* Warp-Wrap
** AllLoveIsUnrequited: Was in love with [[spoiler:Clypta]], who was actually in love with [[spoiler:Glomulus]]
** TheLeader: Becomes the de facto leader of the [[spoiler:ressurected]] Orange Lanterns by virtue of being the most diplomatic and intelligent among them.
** {{Mummy}}

!!Other:
* Sayd (See "[[Characters/GLGreenLanternCorps Green Lantern Corps]]"; in the "Guardians of the Universe" folder) - Guardian of the Orange Lantern Corps, ever since she promised her servitude to Larfleeze to get his help during the ComicBook/BlackestNight.
* Pulsar Stargrave - [[DeadpanSnarker Snarky]] Coluan butler and OnlySaneMan to Larfleeze, introduced in the backup strips in ''Threshold''.
