DC All Access - 75 Years, 75 Green Lanterns

Seventy-five years ago, a railroad man named Alan Scott hoisted the very first emerald lantern...and a comic book legend was born. Many years and an entire spectrum of Lantern Corps later, Green Lantern remains one of the most popular super heroes to ever hit the page. In this exclusive DC All Access comics clip, we look at the many different looks and characters associated with Green Lantern over the past 75 years—from Scott's Golden Age glory, to Hal Jordan's Parallax-infused infamy, to Simon Baz's gun-wielding ring-slinging, and everything in between.

DC Digital Comics: Celebrating Black History Month

From the honor and strength of John Stewart, to the pure techno power of Cyborg, to the energy and humor of Static Shock, DC’s African-American heroes have become both inspirations and favorites of DC fans the world over. John Stewart first joined the Green Lantern Corps in the 1970s and remains the definitive Green Lantern to a generation of fans who grew up with the Justice League animated series. Cyborg has overcome great injury and physical change and now fights alongside Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in the Justice League.

Green Lantern Corps

What’s most important for a hero? Incredible strength? There’s always something or someone stronger. Super-speed? Hope you don’t trip. Telepathy? Do you REALLY want to know what others are thinking about you? You don’t need any of those abilities to be a member of the Green Lantern Corps, but a strong will backed by a wonderful imagination are essential requirements.

Patrolling the farthest reaches of the galaxy, the Green Lantern Corps operates as an intergalactic police force, helping to keep peace throughout the universe. With members made up of aliens from across the universe and a base of operations on the planet Oa, the Green Lanterns follow the command of the Guardians—a race of immortal beings who have been around since the beginning of time. Utilizing a special ring of immense power, Lanterns can create energy constructs in the shape of whatever their imagination can conjure. The power ring can also translate any language, grant its wielder flight and offer protection in almost any environment. It is, quite simply, the strongest weapon in the universe.

It should be known, however, that one does not simply enlist in the Corps. Only a chosen few get to harness the power of the ring. With the likes of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Simon Baz, Kilowog and Mogo among their current and past ranks, the Corps holds itself to only the highest standard of character and hero—individuals capable of overcoming great fear and possessing the will to do whatever it takes to keep those around them safe. So, when you look up at the stars, take comfort in knowing that the Green Lantern Corps is watching over you…in brightest day and blackest night.
