Powered by the Orange Light of Greed, 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 ComicBook/BlackestNight, and again thanks to [[spoiler:The Wanderer]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
** When Larfleeze was first introduced he was more often referred to under his codename Agent Orange, to the point that when he stole new individuals, it was said they "belonged to Agent Orange." But over time characters began referring to him solely as Larfleeze more and more, to the point that his own series was called ''Larfleeze'' instead of ''Agent Orange''.
** The first look at Larfleeze's treasure room back in ''DC Universe'' #0 revealed it to be rather spacious and opulent, decorated in tones of orange and gold with the Orange Lantern symbol tastefully adorned on the walls. This was a far cry from the dank, dark chambers littered with spoiled food and rotted corpses that was seen in Larfleeze's official debut.
** In the issues leading up to the ''Agent Orange'' arc, the first mention of Larfleeze came when Scar spoke with the other Guardians about something troubling she learned, saying "He calls himself Agent Orange." Scar's tone of voice made it sound as if they had only just learned about Larfleeze and the Orange Light's existence, despite later reveals that the Guardians knew exactly who and what he was and had known for centuries.
* FightingSpirit: What Orange Lantern constructs essentially are.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As constructs, if an Orange Lantern is wiped out, Agent Orange can just make another.
* {{Greed}}: The emotion that drives the Corps. Interesting the Orange Lantern is always a singular individual because nobody greedy enough to activate and control the orange light could ever bear the thought of sharing it. This is why the deputy didn't work out: they'd fight each other over the power, cutting their strength to less than half.
* 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 [[ComicBook/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 ComicBook/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.
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: Unlike the other colors, the orange light is at its strongest when channeled through a single user. Which makes sense considering the emotion it represents.
* 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

->'''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 thieves 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 Greed; 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.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: How his series ends.
* AntiHero: Though technically an enemy of the Green Lantern Corps he's often found aiding them, usually for his own reasons.
* {{Asexuality}}: Possibly, as heavy abuse on his mother's part made him believe that any woman that wasn't her was vile and would give him cooties.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Because of his overwhelming greed, his attention is quickly diverted when something pops up that he decides he wants.
* TheBadGuyWins: At the end of his ongoing, he pretty much gets everything he ever wanted: power, wealth, and [[spoiler:family]]. Though it was a choice of him winning or the House of Tuath-Dan, who are arguably worse than he is.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: For all that Larfleeze is a doofus, he's sitting on enough power to ''kill'' one of the Guardians of the Universe (as the flashback to how he got the Lantern proved). And then turns one of them into a construct.
%%* BigEater
* 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.
* ChainPain: Whenever he isn't using the members of his Orange Lantern Corps, Larfleeze tends to use chains as his construct of choice.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: He steals anything he can get his hands on thanks to his boundless greed.
* 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.
* CruelMercy: [[spoiler:Spares the gods of the House of Tuath-Dan]] on the condition that they do not meddle with what is his. Since he considers EVERYTHING to be his property, he has basically consigned these beings obsessed with domination and ownership to an eternity of powerless, impoverished exile. To add insult to injury, he lets [[spoiler: the vengeful Sena the Wanderer, the sibling they endlessly bullied and held in contempt,]] decide where they should be banished.
%%* 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 a meteor headed toward the Creation Point to be incinerated.
* {{Egopolis}}: Larfleezia, a planet of sentient robots that he took control over after he defeated Dyrge of All Sorrows.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: 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 already sold too many of their children to legally do that.
** The end of his ongoing, wherein he discovers the Green Lantern [[IdiotHero G'nort]] is his cousin... distantly related by 14 generations thanks to [[LongLived the incredibly long lifespan]] of Larfleeze's species, but still enough of a connection to bring Larfleeze to tears. While still his egotistical self, he shows G'nort almost unbelievably genuine affection and generosity.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He is absolutely horrified by the possibility that he might have actually been [[spoiler:a jailer who helped the invaders that conquered his people]] instead of a slave.
* 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.
* ForgotICouldFly: A good deal of his ongoing consists of him relearning just how powerful he is after years of lazily relying on his Orange Lantern Corps to do his work for him.
* GogglesDoNothing: Whenever he puts on more of his Orange Lantern rings since he only really needs one to focus his powers that all its copies draw their might from.
* {{Greed}}: He is the greediest creature to ever live. True to form, he's the only true member of the corps; the others are all spirits of the people he killed in his constant search for '''''more'''''.
** Funnily enough, Larfleeze was once referred to ''in-story'' as "Scrooge [=McDuck=] with a power ring"
** Later on, ComicBook/LexLuthor is inducted as a deputy Orange Lantern and becomes so utterly consumed by greed that he turns on the other lanterns, wanting ALL the rings.
--->'''Larfleeze''' to Lex Luthor: Victory is mine! And if you had hair that would be mine, too!
** Ironically enough, his last act of the ComicBook/BlackestNight arc was tossing Luthor back to the humans, which Sinestro lampshaded was an act of him giving something to someone. Larfleeze reacts in stunned shock.
** As a bit of a TragicHero, the top thing Larfleeze wanted was [[spoiler: the ''only'' thing he really wants, his family]]. In the end [[spoiler:he gets reunited with them. Then promptly falls back into stealing and hoarding because old habits die hard.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: He gets ''really'' angry when he doesn't get his way.
* HatesBeingTouched: He's all for getting his claws on whatever he fancies but despises being on the receiving end of such gestures.
%%* HiveQueen
* HornedHumanoid: Given curved horns in the first Volume of ''New Guardians'' for some reason. They don't stick around in other appearances.
* 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.
* ItMustBeMine: Tends to have this reaction with anything he lays eyes on.
* LethalJokeCharacter: A goofy customer to be sure, but he's still one of the most powerful Lanterns in the galaxy.
* 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
* 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.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: He finds the advances of [[spoiler:Ardora]] and [[spoiler:Sena the Wanderer]] to be wholly unwelcome.
* NotSoDifferent: He admits that his ring requires a great deal of will and imagination to use effectively, traits shared with the Green Lanterns that he hates so dearly. Larfleeze also makes the argument that he deserves a Blue Lantern ring because he believes that greed and hope aren't too dissimilar from one another.
* PhysicalGod: After becoming a [[spoiler:living Orange Power Battery]].
* PigMan: When first meeting him, Hal thought he looked like a wild boar crossed with [[Franchise/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.
* PowerLimiter: He can create a special chain construct that not only binds the bodies of his opponents, but their wills as well, making them unable to focus. This has the potential to be a StoryBreakerPower, especially among the Green Lantern cast as all the rings require at least some degree of willpower to function, but it isn't impossible to dodge or destroy the chains before Larfleeze gets them on you.
* ProphecyTwist: Carol Ferris, Adara the Hope Entity, and the epilogue to Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run claimed that Larfleeze's family was still alive and that he would reunite with them someday. And while this did indeed happen at the end of his series, it's made poignant by the fact that they weren't talking about Lafleeze's [[spoiler:immediate family]].
* 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."
* SpannerInTheWorks: To the House of Tuath Dan.
* 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.
* StealthPun: He once created a giant steel beam to crush his opponents. A giant beam of energy.
* StrappedToARocket: How he gets rid of Laord when he finds out that the demigod is too powerful to be killed.
* ThirdPersonPerson: It's mostly an act and he will slip back into referring to himself in first person if sufficiently agitated.
* ThisIsADrill: Uses a large power drill construct to try and steal the omnipotent cosmic power of [[spoiler:Xum of All Things]], complete with a pair of construct safety goggles.
* TookALevelInBadass: Takes quite a few in his series, mostly by remembering how to fully utilize his powers.
* TookALevelInDumbass: Before becoming Agent Orange, Larfleeze was a cunning and ambitious thief. Afterwards, his intelligence gradually decayed and he's become so shortsighted that even his own power ring has loftier goals than he does.
* TookALevelInKindness: It's really hard to tell, but after he (maybe) learns his true origins as a [[spoiler:traitor to his own people]], he takes a few. For one thing, he spares both his [[spoiler:rogue Orange Lantern Corps]] and [[spoiler:his enemies from the House of Tuath-Dan]] despite all the pain and misery they heaped upon him and he pretty much [[spoiler:drops his vendetta on Sena the Wanderer]] despite spending several issues trying to kill her for "stealing" Stargrave from him.
* TreasureRoom: Larfleeze used to own 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
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. 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.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Glomulus's initial design and early appearances were very ugly and disgusting looking, but when he began appearing in ''New Guardians'' his appearance fell more under UglyCute like a strange little plush toy.
* TheQuisling: Immediately turns on the other Orange Lanterns once their [[spoiler:rebellion against Larfleeze fails.]]
* TeamPet: Of the New Guardians.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the ''Larfleeze'' comic after [[spoiler: he's revived by the Wanderer, Glomulus is suddenly much more sentient and vindictive then when he was first alive, and is eager to make Larfleeze suffer just like the other Orange Lanterns.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Was mainly just a mindless ExtremeOmnivore when he was originally alive, but his time with the New Guardians shows him developing more sentience and a fondness for Kyle Rayner and the other colored Lanterns.
* VerbalTic: Hee!
* YouNoTakeCandle: His speech is primitive.

!!Ophidian the Tempter
->'''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.

* CompellingVoice: When someone gets a hold of the Central Power Battery, Ophidian will start listing off all the things they want and should take.
* DemonicPossession: When people become possessed by Ophidian, they look very similar to those possessed by Parallax.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Takes the form of a snake and is fairly evil.
* RuleOfSymbolism: Ophidian is implied to be the same serpent that [[Literature/BookOfGenesis 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
** AGodAmI: Combined with JerkassGods, he demanded people give him their valuables. Although, he wasn't ALL bad. See below.
%%** {{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. [[PragmaticVillainy Although he wasn't doing it to be nice]]. Blume just felt that the babies had no material value.]]
* Clypta
** DarkActionGirl: Perhaps the most violent and irritable of the group after [[spoiler:her resurrection]]
** DefiantToTheEnd: When Larfleeze considers killing the Orange Lanterns [[spoiler: again]] after the torture they put him through, Clypta announces that they (or at the very least, she) will spend every second fighting against Larfleeze's control if he turns them into constructs again. [[spoiler: Larfleeze decides they're not worth the effort and leaves them to die.]]
** 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: She seems to naturally generate flames around her head and tendrils.
* Sound Dancer
** ButterFace: She has a shapely, curvy female body, but a face that's more or less just a gaping maw and no eyes.
** {{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:resurrected]] Orange Lanterns by virtue of being the most diplomatic and intelligent among them.
** {{Mummy}}: Looks like one and is implied to be one. He comes from a planet called Cairo and his Black Lantern mentioned Larfleeze stole the treasures buried next to him.

* 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, he was first introduced in the backup strips in ''Threshold''.
** BadAssDecay: Prior to BlackestNight, Stargrave was one of the bigger villains the LegionOfSuperHeroes ever fought, easily capable of fighting off the Legion at its full might unless they planned ahead. Afterward, well, he's Larfleeze's butler -- and not even a BattleButler. Of course since his battles with the Legion chronologically took place a thousand years into the future, it's possible at some point Pulsar TookALevelInBadass before encountering the Legionnaires.
%%** BeleagueredAssistant
%%** ButtMonkey
** CloudcuckoolandersMinder: His role in Larfleeze's life could as easily be called babysitter as butler.
** DistressedDude: A great deal of the story in Larfleeze's spinoff comic centers around him being rescued from Larfleeze, only to find [[OutOfTheFryingPan his rescuers are even worse]], whereupon he is rescued back by Larfleeze. [[RunningGag and then re-rescued from him]]. [[UpToEleven Larfleeze immediately goes on a mission to rescue him back.]]
%%** ServileSnarker
** WeWantOurJerkBack: Despite his distaste for Larfleeze, he finds serving the orange lantern far preferable to the Gods of T'uath Dan. He fondly compares Larfleeze to a hemorrhoid he has grown so used to that it feels too strange to be without that familiar pain in the ass.

* As mentioned before, ComicBook/LexLuthor was temporarily deputized during the ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''.

* Hal Jordan has briefly worn the Orange Ring on at least two occasions.
