    In General 
  • Badass Creed:
  • Barrier Warrior: Most GLs prefer to fight this way, unless their imagination is particularly active. The ring can create various force fields of various sizes and shapes to protect the wearer and others around him. With the cosmic scope of a Green Lantern's duties, it is only natural that the power ring is designed for operation in space. The ring creates a force-field around the wearer, protecting him/her/it from the hazards of the void including filtration of stellar radiation and microscopic particulate matter which would ordinarily be fatal should the space debris strike the ring wielder at high speeds.
  • Determinator: Because the rings are powered by willpower, each and every GL is naturally one.
  • Emerald Power: The Green Lantern Corps are also known as the Emerald Knights.
  • Green Lantern Ring: They wield the Trope Namer.
  • Heroic Spirit: This is more or less what allows them to use their rings.
  • Omniglot: Anyone putting a Green Lantern on their finger can understand, read, and speak virtually any language known to the Power Ring, facilitating diplomatic encounters rather than violent confrontations. Complications can arise, though, when a frame of reference for translation is not available... and the ring only translates the wearer's words directly, it does not enhanced their charisma or knack for diplomacy.
  • Omniscient Database: At this level of mastery, a Green Lantern can use their ring to access portions of the Oan Archive from their Battery. Some of this information can be relayed to the ring in the field, but in-depth research must be conducted at the Battery.
  • Phlebotinum Battery: Rings of Oa require a higher charge than most other Power Rings. As a result, most Green Lanterns are issued their own Lantern Battery. Even when not used, a Green Lantern ring will typically require a daily recharge. Fortunately, access to an issued Battery's recharge feature only requires the Lantern to cite the Lantern Oath and place their ring inside the Battery. A recharge from a full depletion requires thirty minutes.
  • Space Police: Though they're more spread-out than most, with only one Lantern for many star systems; additionally, they're independent of any government, being run by Sufficiently Advanced Aliens and their mighty power rings pack an incredibly versatile punch.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Traditionally, Green Lantern rings were useless against the color yellow. (This is no longer the case as experienced Lanterns can overcome the weakness.)

Earth's Green Lanterns

    John Stewart / Green Lantern Alpha
Click for Civilian Look 

A former Marine picked by Abin Sur and Sinestro to join the Green Lantern Corps.

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: John in Earth 27 is the first lantern of Sector 2814 rather than Hal Jordan.
  • Amazon Chaser: If his relationships with Katma Tui and Vixen say anything, it's that John loves dangerous and formidable females.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the leader of the corps and a definite ass kicker.
  • Badass Beard: This version has a full, if greying beard, but remains the leader of Earth's Green Lanterns.
  • Badass Bookworm: He's an architect in his day job.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Growing up, John’s aggression often got the better of him. One day after his little sister got assaulted coming home from school, John tracked down the three frat boys responsible and put each one in the hospital.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Even when his ring is taken from him, he's still a trained Marine.
  • Captain Smooth and Sergeant Rough: The Captain Smooth to Guy's Sargent Rough.
  • Code Name: In his time with USMC, John earned the rank of Gunnery Sergeant and fought in the first Gulf War where his aggression had been curbed to such a degree that his comrades gave him the nickname “Square John” for his firm adherence to policy and rigid discipline.
  • Cold Sniper: A common theme among his modern constructs are sniper rifles.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: His appearance is based on English actor Idris Elba.
  • Cool Uncle: Is this with Anissa and Jennifer Pierce.
  • Court-Martialed: Due to the mitigating factors of John’s eighteenth birthday occurring during John’s trial, the judge opted for an alternative sentencing, giving John probation if he enlisted in the United States Armed Forces, John agreed to the judge’s terms and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When he first heard the Green Lantern oath, his immediate response was to call it corny.
  • Epic Flail: It's kind of like his version of the boxing gloves; if he's not using some kind of rifle, he's using this.
  • Heroic Willpower: More so than Hal, Kyle, Guy, Simon or Jessica. John's willpower is so strong it almost caused his ring to blow up, something that's only happened before with Sinestro.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: This is how his reaction and mourning of Katma's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Interspecies Romance: He was once married to Korugaran Katma Tui.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be abrasive and dominant, but he's a real softie deep down and a true friend.
  • Lost Lenore: To Katma Tui.
  • Ludd Was Right: John is a bit of a luddite and he didn't interacted with Interceptor's A.I.
  • Military Superhero: Before joining the Green Lantern Corps, he was in the Marine Corps.
  • My Greatest Failure: Failing to prevent Katma's death.
  • Official Couple: He's engaged to Mari McCabe.
  • Open Secret: During the "secret identity" days, John was pretty open about his identity, so that several people in his neighbourhood already knew, but the news crews had a hard time catching up to a guy who could fly.
  • Raised by Grandparents: John has few memories of his parents as they died in a car accident when he was very young. John and his younger siblings (Roselynn & Damon) were raised by their grandparents, Roy and Addie Stewart, in Midway City.
  • Scary Black Man: Generally an incredibly nice guy, but piss him off and watch that change.
  • Semper Fi: Oh definitely.
  • Skipping School: In his youth, John had a knack for getting suspended from school due to a problem trusting authority figures and spent much of his childhood accompanying his grandfather, a construction foreman, at various job sites.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Beneath John's hard-nosed military exterior, there remains a certain (and normally well-hidden) streak of playfulness and sentimentality.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Mostly got bickerings with Hal and Guy.

    Hal Jordan / Green Lantern Bravo
Click for Civilian Look 

When Abin Sur was mortally wounded after being flung into Hal's jet during a battle over Alcatraz, he turned to the occupant after the crash and said "You'll do."

  • Ace Pilot: Hal was a flying ace in the U.S. Air Force, quite simply the best at his job.
  • All a Part of the Job: Hal loves being a GL despite his problems with the Guardians' rule and the obvious life-complicating consequences being a GL has.
  • Alliterative Family: Not Hal himself, but his mother Jessica, brothers Jack and Jim all fit this trope.
  • A Threesome Is Hot: Apparently he tried to score a threesome with Helena and Zinda. They said it didn't happen, but Dinah thinks it did. His girlfriend and female co-workers were none too pleased.
  • Blood Brothers: With his fellow Green Lantern earthmen: John, Guy, Kyle, Simon and Jessica and fellow GL Kilowog, each owing each other his life many times over.
  • The Captain: Of the Interceptor.
  • Code Name: He has his own pilot code name: Highball, which was a call-sign used by old train operators which used to mean "Full speed ahead".
  • Dating Catwoman: With Carol Ferris, when she's possessed by the Star Sapphire gem. Less so after she shakes its influence.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Quite so. Considering that he's a hotshot pilot, he tends to come up with some quips and witty banter. Especially around Batman.
  • Domino Mask: He and Kyle Rayner are the only Lanterns that cover their eyes with one of this.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Hal is a genuinely nice person, but don't think that means he'll go easy on bad guys.
  • Hot-Blooded: Not as much as Guy, but at least 60% of his characteristic recklessness is due to this. Though, since it's also what makes him such a good Lantern, it works in his favor as much as it puts him in danger... usually.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: While he doesn't have John's determination, Guy's courage or Kyle's creativity, he's no slouch on neither department.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Can be extremely cocky to the point of outright arrogance, and often clashes with other heroes, but is ultimately a good man and genuinely believes in being a hero.
  • The Lancer: Normally when all the Earth lanterns meet up, he takes this role.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Hal can always be seen wearing his father's brown pilot jacket when he's not in-uniform. He even forms an ethos around it, taken from a saying his father used to have: a real man wears his jacket proudly on his shoulders but keeps it unzipped, ready to be offered to anyone who might need it more.
  • Loveable Rogue: Despite being in the Air force and the GLC, Hal has some problems with authority and often goes explicitly against orders if he feels he's doing the right thing.
  • Military Maverick: Can be both in the U.S. military and the Green Lantern Corps.
  • Military Superhero: Hal's lifelong dream was to be a pilot like his dad. So he joined the U.S Air Force and became an Ace jet fighter pilot. He got himself dishonorably discharged so he could see his mother on her deathbed (she hated Hal being a pilot since Hal's dad died that way), but was given a second chance years later. At one point, he was even a POW. Unlike John, though, it's not a big aspect of Hal's background.
  • Official Couple: He's engaged to Carol Ferris/Star Sapphire.
  • Perma-Stubble: This version of Hal has a noticeable stubble.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: The true underlying reason for Hal's constant problems with authority: it's not that he has a problem with authority as a concept-it's just that when it comes to choosing between his orders and his principles, he'll pick what he thinks is right over what other people are telling him is right.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds:
    • With Oliver Queen, which the "by-the-book" Hal a "plays by his own rules" Ollie deal with issues like racism, political corruption, pollution and overpopulation.
    • While he often gets into conflict with Kilowog, they still have a deep respect for each other.

    Guy Gardner / Green Lantern Charlie
Click for Civilian Look 

When Abin Sur crashed on Earth, his ring detected two people who were sufficiently brave and honest to be named his replacement. Hal Jordan was closer in proximity and he gained the ring. Years later, however, the other candidate—a former delinquent and bartender named Guy Gardner—was contacted by the Guardians to act as Jordan's backup, and the Hot-Blooded Green Lantern has been kickin' butt ever since.

  • Abusive Parents: Does not have a happy relationship with his dad, to put it lightly.
  • Alliterative Name: Guy Gardner.
  • Badass Beard: This version of Guy has a beard.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's big, loud, aggressive, and enjoys what he's doing.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Initially. Guy Gardner's combined willpower and imagination give him the potential to be one of the most powerful Green Lanterns ever. Too bad he doesn't really care to try that hard or he's usually too pissed off to think straight.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Brooding to Ice's Gentle.
  • Cowboy Cop: He's not big on rules.
  • Death Seeker: Has been searching for a Heroic Sacrifice for some time.
  • Determinator: In spades. He doesn't quit a mission or give up a fight unless he is rendered incapable of going on, and even then he'll still try and complete his mission. When tortured, he taunts his torturers to hurt him more. This is because, while his fellow Green Lanterns are all capable of overcoming great fear, Guy is pretty much completely fearless.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: Guy Gardner's middle name is Darrin.
  • Fiery Redhead: Downplayed; it's more a slow roast than a blazing fire.
  • Heroic Willpower: Up to Eleven, Guy's willpower is so strong that it almost overloads his ring. Every construct he creates has energy in excess causing them to sparkle, and even at rest, his ring is constantly releasing energy.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With John and Kyle in the corps, Ted and Michael in the Justice League
  • Hidden Depths: Who would have expected Guy Gardner to know how to play chess?
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His current personality. Most prevalent when involving a dire threat to his closest friends, the Corps, or Ice.
  • Official Couple: With Tora Olafsdotter.
  • Parental Neglect: His parents neglected him over their favoritism of his older brother Mace. By the time Guy was fifteen, he decided he could not compete with his brother as nothing he did was ever likely to be seen as good enough by his parents, so when Mace became a sheriff's deputy in the notoriously dry county they lived in, Guy went the opposite direction: becoming a delinquent.
  • Red Is Violent: He's not evil, but he is a Fiery Redhead who also is impulsive and sometimes has a violent nature, especially in the beginning.
  • Related in the Adaptation: His great-uncle is the founder of the Minutemen Nelson Gardner, the first Captain Metropolis. He's also related to Alexandra Gardner, Caitlin Fairchild's roommate.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: He's a redhead whose green-eyes glow when channeling the power of the Green Lantern.
  • Tranquil Fury: Has mastered this.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With the rest of the Justice League International crew, especially Michael Carter/Booster Gold and Ted Kord/Blue Beetle.

    Kyle Rayner / Green Lantern Delta
Click for Civilian Look 

Kyle Rayner, a struggling artist, was just an average young man until Ganthet, the Guardian of the Universe, appeared to him in a back alley and handed him the Green Lantern power ring.

  • Art Attacker: Being an artist with the power to make shapes with his mind, his constructs are particularly detailed, and he generally treats them as he would artwork that is gradually refined. In-universe it's said that his constructs are initially "sketched" into existence before becoming more solid, and he has even edited them, making slight alterations to ones he has already "finished."
  • Ascended Fanboy: Kyle grew up admiring Batman and Superman. Now he works side by side with them.
  • Audience Surrogate: Him being a fan of comics and more of an everyman in comparison to Hal made him this for a while.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Kyle is often regarded by his enemies as one of the most dangerous and unpredictable Lanterns ever (yes, more than Guy Gardner), not because of his determination or a lack of mercy, but because as a comic artist his mind works creatively and thus he has no problems with beating the hell out of you with a giant teddy bear or making a Magical Girl and letting her kick your ass while he stands on the sidelines snarking.
  • Chick Magnet: He's considered very attractive and has dated a lot of attractive women. He's introduced as having just broken up with Alex, and would later have long-term relationships with Jade, the green-skinned model daughter of Alan Scott.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He has a habit of going for his opponent's eyes, especially in situations where he's de-powered/doesn't have the ring.
  • Determinator: Even among an entire group whose power is fueled by Determination, Kyle stands out.
  • Disappeared Dad: He was raised by a single mother, Moira Rayner. This has an odd effect on him as he gravitates subtly to potential father-figures in his life, such as the other members of the Justice League or his fellow Corpsmen.
  • Dork Knight: He is a very dorky lover of drawing and superheroes.
  • Friendly Rivalry: He and Sam Simeon are artistic rivals.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Kyle's a pop culture and Anime/Manga nerd, yet he still looks like a movie star.
  • Mr. Imagination: Being an artist, he has one of the most powerful imaginations in the entire corps to take advantage of the ring, coming up with creative ways to beat bad guys.
  • Official Couple: With Jennifer Lynn-Hayden.
  • Perma-Stubble: Like The New Guardians he grow this one.
  • Pretty Boy: Generally much prettier than the older Earth Lanterns to highlight his youth and more light-hearted personality.
  • Sequential Artist: He is a professional comic book artist and writer. If he's fighting alongside other Lanterns, this tends to be shown as influencing his style of combat.
  • Signature Style: Apparently his art style is distinct enough for people to figure out his identity based on his constructs. Also the way his constructs appear (being first "sketched" into existence before becoming more solid) is a dead giveaway.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Not him, but his ex-girlfriend Alexandra DeWitt broke their relationship and is alive to avoid her infamous fate in the comics instead.

    Simon Baz / Green Lantern Echo
Click for Civilian Look 

A Lebanese-American and the fifth Green Lantern of Earth. A life growing up with anti-Muslim and anti-Middle Eastern sentiments around him led to a career as a criminal and carjacker. He gains a Lantern ring during an interrogation by the police, which busts him out of police custody.

  • Anti-Hero: When he was laid off, he started stealing cars, but only to support his sister and nephew until he could get another job. Deep down, he's a good person.
  • Badass Driver: Before he became a Lantern, he had... some experience with street-racing. The first construct he makes with his ring is in fact a detailed sports-car. The next several constructs he makes are also cars.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Simon manages to use his ring to will his brother-in-law out his coma. The Green Lantern accompanying him says this should be impossible, as the rings cannot cure illness or raise the dead. He concludes that the ring probably chose Simon for a greater purpose.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Poor Simon manages to steal a van that happens to also contain a large bomb. It'd be unfortunate stealing a terrorist's van even if he wasn't a Muslim.
  • Determinator: A requisite for any GL, sure, but Simon manages to take it a step further. Despite being told by Bd'g that a Green Lantern Ring cannot bring his brother in-law out of a coma, he keeps pouring all his willpower into it, even beginning to bleed from his eyes due to the strain. And he succeeds.
  • Fingerless Gloves: As part of his outfit. He also wore fingerless gloves prior to becoming a Green Lantern.
  • Hidden Depths: To all outside appearances, Simon is a typical anti-hero, and former criminal... when he's really a nice guy, and only became a criminal to pay for his family when he was laid off from his job as an engineer. He also has a degree in engineering.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself for the street-racing accident that crippled his best friend and brother-in-law, and as a result becomes increasingly distant from his sister. She refuses to accept this when they meet up again, stating that she doesn't blame him.
  • Justified Criminal: His backstory are pretty much there to help you feel sorry for his life of crime.
  • Nice Guy: Minor crimes aside, Simon is actually an intelligent and reasonable person, with a clear sense of right and wrong. Which just makes the way his life went since 9/11 all the more unfair.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: He and Jessica seem to be heading this way, as they've become incredibly close, with no hint of any romantic notions.
  • Superhero Packing Heat: When his ring loses power during a confrontation, he grabs a handgun to defend himself. Once he gets his ring recharged, he keeps the gun as a backup, in case he can't use his ring again.
  • Tattooed Crook: He sports an Arabic forearm tattoo which stands for courage. It glows green when he's using his ring.

    Jessica Cruz / Green Lantern Foxtrot
Click for Civilian Look 

Volthoom's Power Ring sought out a new host in Earth 27, Jessica Cruz. The Justice League tracked the ring down, helping Jessica make use of it and fight its attempts to control her, until finally, the ring was killed... and Jessica unexpectedly found herself Earth's newest Green Lantern.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: When Guy Gardner trains her, he is such a Drill Sergeant Nasty that Jessica snaps and punches him, which she follows with an Oh, Crap! moment.
  • Character Development: She starts off as girl troubled with anxiety that struggles to pull herself together to becoming a brave heroine who is able to overcome her troubles and save the day.
  • Cowardly Lion: Jessica never stops being scared of all the things she has to deal with as a Green Lantern, but her ability to overcome her fear is what makes her one.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: On a hiking trip with frisky teens, they came across with the Aryan Brigade burying dead bodies of two police officers. He executed her friends and she barely managed to escape with her own life. A search party found her two days later, completely catatonic and covered in mud and blood.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: After having just received her GL ring.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: Suffers from intense agoraphobia, among other things.
  • Nervous Wreck: Due to severe social anxiety, she has a habit of panicking at practically everything.
  • Online Alias: Her Network ID is 'Pancake_Princess'.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: She and Simon seem to be heading this way, as they've become incredibly close, with no hint of any romantic notions.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Jessica is the only female Green Lantern of Sector 2814.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Shortly after fighting an army of Red Lanterns, she panics at the mere idea of spending the day with Simon's family.
  • Sole Survivor: She was the only one out of her and frisky teens that survived a murder attempt.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: After doubting whether she was worthy to be a Green Lantern, Jessica got a truly huge boost to her confidence. After putting on the Phantom Ring, which possesses the overwhelming power of all of the various types of power ring, she notes that "if you don't know how to control the Phantom Ring, it takes you on a ride through the various power emotions until it finds the one that applies to you most." It shifts her through all seven before finally setting on WILL. Because she is a true Green Lantern, and she is worthy of the power ring.


Other Green Lanterns

    Abin Sur

Hal Jordan's immediate predecessor as Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814, Abin Sur served with great distinction for all his long years. During a mission to the ruins of the Empire of Tears, on the planet Ysmault, Abin was told the prophecy of the Blackest Night by the demon Qull of the Five Inversions. Abin took another of the Inversions, Atrocitus, in a spaceship to guide him toward a means to prevent the prophecy, but the demon escaped his bonds and mortally wounded Abin. The dying Green Lantern crashed on Earth, where he summoned Hal Jordan to be his replacement before passing on.

  • Alliterative Family: There's his sister Arin Sur, and his children Amon and Alis Sur.
  • Arch-Nemesis: Iroque, the woman who murdered his daughter. He surprisingly did accept her atonement, which made her worthy of the Indigo ring.
  • Badass Teacher: He used to be a teacher who volunteered at the prison to help the criminals better themselves through learning. Once he got his ring, he quickly captured the woman who had killed his daughter.
  • Bald of Awesome: Most males of his species are bald, and he was not an exception.
  • Best Friends-in-Law: His sister Arin Sur was married to his once best friend Thaal Sinestro.
  • Death by Origin Story: Otherwise Hal wouldn't have become a Green Lantern.
  • Facial Markings: There is an Ungaran symbol for "Mentor/Teacher" on his forehead.
  • Famous Last Words: "I suppose you’ll do…"
  • The Farmer and the Viper: He was the Farmer to Iroque's viper, not realizing he was using him to keep committing crimes while dating his daughter Alis. His naiveté costed him his daughter, and for two decades he was the only living contact with Iroque until he decided she could truly reform.
  • I'm Dying, Please Take My MacGuffin: He summoned Hal Jordan to be his replacement and give his ring before passing on.
  • Our Founder: He's Co-Founder of the current Indigo Tribe. They even included his name in their oath.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His daughter Alis Sur was murdered by Iroque decades ago.
  • Posthumous Character: What is known from him is usually after death.
  • Seeker Archetype: He seeks out the mystery of the blackest night, and it leads to his death.

    Arisia Rrab

A gold-skinned, elf-like alien, Arisia Rrab was an adolescent when she joined the Green Lantern Corps (though due to her species' long lifespan, she was actually over 200 years old). She patrols Sector 2815.

  • Adaptational Modesty: Her suit is much more covering than in the comics.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blonde-haired and very idealistic and heroic.
  • Healing Factor: Only when triggered by massive trauma.
  • Heroic Lineage: Comes from a distinguished line of Green Lantern Corps.
  • Legacy Hero: Uniquely among the Corps, the Green Lantern of her sector is effectively a hereditary title: Her grandfather was a Green Lantern, then her father, then her uncle, and now her, and there were other Rrabs before them. This is not a family to upset.
  • Modesty Shorts: She clearly has shorts beneath her miniskirt.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Being a kid at the time she gained her ring makes her one naturally.
  • Pointy Ears: Justified since she is an elf-like alien.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Her species is rather long lived and she is considered very young by their standards, over 200 years old.
  • Shout-Out: Her collar is inspired by the headbands worn in Naruto.
  • Space Elves: Comes from a species that looks like them.

Green Lantern of Space Sector 1014 from the planet H'lven, that is inhabited by sentient small animals.

    Katma Tui

Sinestro's successor as Green Lantern of Sector 1417, Katma Tui led a rebellion against her tyrannical predecessor and was chosen by the Guardians to be his replacement. However, because the Green Lantern had become a symbol of oppression on Korugar, Tui was shunned by her people, who named her "the Lost".

Tui served with distinction as a brave and loyal Green Lantern in the wars against Krona, Nekron, and the Anti-Monitor, and eventually fell deeply in love with fellow Green Lantern John Stewart, whom she married. Tragically, she sacrificed by blowing up her ring during a battle with Sinestro.

  • Broken Pedestal: She was an admirer of Sinestro's, before his descent into tyranny. Afterward, she admitted to the Guardians themselves that while she still believed in the Green Lanterns as an idea, Sinestro's actions had shaken her.
  • Composite Character: Her looks and personality are based on her DCAU incarnation.
  • Defiant to the End: She doesn't let herself be intimidated by Sinestro and prefers to blow herself up than letting him have her ring and turn it yellow.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Korugarans aren't that different from humans besides their pinkish skin-tone, black sclera and pointy ears, and she's quite attractive either way.
  • Interspecies Romance: Had one with human John Stewart.
  • Mentor: To most of the other Green Lanterns. John Stewart even compares her to Yoda at one point.
  • Pointy Ears: Just like Sinestro's.
  • Posthumous Character: She sacrificed herself to prevent being corrupted by Sinestro several years prior.
  • Redeeming Replacement: She replaced Sinestro.
  • Sexy Mentor: To John Stewart.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 5'11/180cm tall, and by human standards she's quite beautiful.
  • Stern Teacher: She is not particularly warm or kind when training her students.
  • Taking You with Me: Blows up her ring hoping to take Sinestro with her rather than letting him take her ring.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: It is all but said out loud that she had one with John while training him as a Green Lantern.


Hailing from the planet Bolovax Vik, Kilowog is a monstrous-looking but good-hearted Green Lantern who serves as the Corps' most famed drill sergeant.

  • The Big Guy: The biggest on the crew and wields light construct hammers.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: More stoic than most examples but still gets into fighting with a grin.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: A rough and gruff guy who takes the Tough Love approach with his recruits and others.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Only when he's on-duty; after hours, he's the sweetest guy on Oa. Its Kilowog's drill instructor from his days as a rookie, Lantern Ermey, who instilled within him the drive of a drill instructor and inspired him to push his own recruits as hard as possible so they'll have a better chance of simply surviving once they graduate to full Lantern.
  • Drop the Hammer: His preferred type of ring construct is a hammer.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Because he's a pig man he doesn't have human hands.
  • Genius Bruiser: After finding himself separated from his species' Hive Mind, he relearned almost everything he had forgotten and more.
  • Gentle Giant: When in a good mood, he's an affable guy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can sometimes be grimly harsh, and is very aggressive. However, he means well.
  • More Dakka: When it isn't one-on-one, Kilowog goes for the big guns; a lot of them.
  • Pardon My Klingon: He likes to call people "poozer" as both an insult and term of endearment, which he picked up from his old drill sergeant Ermey.
  • Pig Man: He's big, pink, and has tusks.
  • Sergeant Rock: He qualifies. Bonus points for also being a former drill sergeant and one of the highest ranking members of the Corps.

    Sodam Yat 

From the planet Xudar, Tomar Tu is the Green Lantern of Space Sector 2813 and son of Tomar-Re.

Iolande is the princess of Betrassus and Green Lantern of Sector 1417.

    Jaq T'Chanz 
A self-proclaimed good bad man, sent to clean up the planet Hellhole and its sector. He's the Green Lantern of Sector 17.
  • Adaptation Name Change: He goes from Jack T. Chance in the comics to Jaq T'Chanz in Earth 27.
  • Not Wearing Tights: Unlike all other Lanterns, he prefers to wear detective clothes rather than his GL uniform.


Honored Green Lantern of Space Sector 2261; a living, sentient planet and the guiding force behind power rings' tracking system and selection process.

  • Beam Spam: His default attack is the basic Green Lantern energy beam. Of course, Mogo being a planet, said beam is Death Star-tier.
  • Genius Loci: He's a sentient planet and probably the biggest Green Lantern that has ever existed.
  • Gentle Giant: Up to Eleven, due to being a heroic planet.
  • Ghibli Hills: Mogo's terrain is made up mostly of verdant hills and lush forests.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently he asked Ambush Bug to help it with some landscaping.
  • Planet Spaceship: For intents and purposes.
  • Pleasure Planet: A lot of other Green Lanterns spend their vacation time on him.
  • The Shrink: Lanterns go to him for his wisdom when the job starts feeling too tough on them.
  • Telepathy: Mogo can read the mind of any being on his surface.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Has a Death Star-esque beam cannon from his ring.

    Rot Lop Fan

Rot Lop Fan is a member of the Green Lantern Corps, known to him as the "F-Sharp Bell Corps". He is blind and uses a ring based upon the principles of sound. Rot Lop Fan protects Space Sector 911.

  • Eyeless Face: His head seems to have vestigial eyes because his species evolved on a world without light.
  • Handicapped Badass: As a blind Green Lantern, although that's because of his species' physiology and not an individual handicap.
  • Language Equals Thought: Justified in this case: the Obsidian Deeps of his sector are permanently shrouded in total darkness, so the inhabitants never developed functioning eyes. The very concept of color, any color, is completely alien to them.
  • Loud of War: "F-Sharp Bell".
  • Starfish Aliens: More or less. He might be humanoid but doesn't even understand the concept of light.


The Interceptor's Nav-Com AI. She serves as the Naïve Newcomer to Hal's group, learning what it means to be a Green Lantern from their example.

  • Anything That Moves: Her orientation is described as 'Omnisexual'.
  • Arm Cannon: Her palms work like Green Lantern rings.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a state-of-the-art, combat-capable AI and her behavior is comparable to an inquisitive little girl asking her father, "what's that thing called".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her body exposes her midsection almost entirely.
  • The Comically Serious: Doesn't have a grasp of humor so she can be funny while completely serious.
  • Composite Character: The Interceptor is a combination of Interceptor from Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Abin Sur's ship from the comics, when he came to Earth.
  • Cool Starship: She's the Interceptor's AI so her true form is the ship itself.
  • Easily Detachable Robot Parts: Aya's "body" is just a green energy construct designed to give her human form. Her armor is her physical self, and the individual pieces are all capable of acting independently.
  • Fembot: Has constructed a humanoid female body for herself.
  • Not So Stoic: She's stoic most of the time, but she has her moments.
  • Official Couple: With Red Lantern Razer.
  • Ride the Lightning: She can transfer her consciousness in the form of a green bolt of energy.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Justified; she wants to be a Green Lantern and her immediate role models are all humanoid.
  • Sapient Ship: Her true form is the Interceptor itself.
  • The Smart Girl: She's the AI of a cutting-edge starship so, yes, she's very smart.
  • Spaceship Girl: Kilowog tries to argue against Aya's attempt to classify herself as a Green Lantern, reasoning that she needs a physical body. Aya responds by making one.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She barely qualifies at 5'8"/173cm, but she's beautiful despite being an A.I.
  • Tinman Typist: She engages in this trope several times. To make it even weirder, after the first example, she immediately explicitly states that she has total mental control over the ship.


How well does it match the trope?
