Green Lantern's Light
In the Green Lantern comic books, members of the Green Lantern Corps fight cosmic injustice with a power ring, the most powerful weapon in the universe. The ring’s power is only bounded by the imagination and willpower of the wearer. A power ring can generate green, solid-light constructs created from the wearer’s mind.
The light effect over this replica Green Lantern ring was created by twirling a small flashlight with a green filter.

Green Lantern is the name given to numerous superheroes in comic books published by DC Comics. Alan Scott, the first Green Lantern, was created by Bill Finger and Martin Nodell and premiered in All-American Comics #16 in 1940. Each Green Lantern is armed with a power ring that projects solid-light constructs limited only by the wearer’s imagination and willpower. Except for Alan Scott, Green Lanterns are specially selected members of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic police force. Notable Green Lanterns of Earth include Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, and Kyle Rayner. Throughout their history Green Lanterns have often been members of the various incarnations of the Justice Society and Justice League with fellow superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and others. The Green Lanterns have appeared in numerous TV series, including Green Lantern: The Animated Series (2011), and the film Green Lantern (2011).
