I’ve always wanted a green ring and if it were a nearly perfect large emerald that would be magical and more probably than getting the extraordinary magic ring that turned Alan Scott into the Green Lantern. If you don’t remember Alan Scott, then perhaps you’re more familiar with Hal Jordan…or Guy Gardner or John Stewart or Kyle Rayner or Simon Baz. If you’re already a Green Lantern fan, then all you need to know is DC Entertainment is having a 75th Anniversary Sweepstakes and you can win a treasure trove of Green Lantern stuff!
The Green Lantern first appeared in publication in 1940 in the “All-American Comics” #16. The writer for the DC Comics website is obviously not a fan of statement jewelry, writing “Imagine if the ring on your finger was more than a piece of gaudy jewelry. Instead it’s the universe’s most powerful weapon. It can create whatever you wish out of pure energy, its might limited only by your imagination and will.”
We don’t know how it stacks up against the one ring from Middle Earth and J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination or the Ring of the Nibelungens, but it does give you membership to “an exclusive intergalactic police force with alien officers spanning the cosmos.” We don’t know how that interfaces with any immigration policies of our current potential presidential candidates either.
But Hal Jordan did face his fears, including his greatest nightmare of witnessing his pilot father dying in a tragic plane crash, and become the Green Lantern. How Hal Jordan becomes Alan Scott et al is long and complicated, but what’s important is that you don’t need to know that or make a purchase to get some cool stuff that celebrates green.
