The Green Lantern Corps is an intergalactic peacekeeping organization comprised of individuals dubbed Green Lanterns who conduct themselves akin to a police force. They are known to derive their power and ring constructs from the emotion of courage and possess indomitable willpower.

Invasion of Earth

Yalan Gur assisting Earth's warriors against Darkseid's invasion

During Darkseid's attempted terraformation of Earth thousands of years ago, Green Lantern Yalan Gur joined the forces of Earth, with the assistance of the Old Gods, to battle him. Gur used his ring to kill several of Apokolips' forces, but was ultimately slain by Darkseid.

Having lost its bearer, Gur's ring flew from his body and into parts unknown to find a new Lantern to take his place.[1]

Second Invasion of Earth

After creating an outpost for his Parademon army to begin another invasion of Earth, the Old God Steppenwolf contacted DeSaad to report on his findings. During their conversation, Steppenwolf emphasized his confidence in the invasion's success, citing the fact that there were no Lanterns present to protect the planet this time. Despite his confidence, Steppenwolf was ultimately defeated and killed by a Unity of Earth's forces, achieving the victory even without renewed aid from the Lanterns.[1]

Knightmare

At least one Green Lantern fought against the Regime during the Knightmare future. The Lantern Kilowog was eventually killed in battle, as his dead body appeared in front of the destroyed Hall of Justice.[1]

Equipment

Every Lantern is given a Power Ring to aid them in their mission for intergalactic peace, and each ring is paired with a power battery to recharge its energy after it is spent. The rings enable the user to create energy structure merely be visualizing them. These structures are fueled by the user's emotion of courage and willpower.

Behind the scenes

John Stewart concept art for Zack Snyder's Justice League

  • According to Zack Snyder, he had an idea for including another Green Lantern in Justice League which would have probably involved casting Ryan Reynolds in the role of a backup Lantern to that other Lantern.[2]
    • Snyder revealed in another interview that the other Lantern he had planned to include originally was that of John Stewart, who was originally written and partially shot to appear in Justice League. During the production of Zack Snyder's Justice League, Snyder shot another version in his backyard, which the studio later asked him to remove. Snyder instead chose to repurpose the scene to act as the final scene of his film, only now involving Martian Manhunter.[3] Snyder later confirmed that John Stewart's actor was played by Wayne T. Carr.
  • In DC Comics, typically only one Green Lantern is assigned to a space sector at a time. However, due to the large amount of threats present in it, Sector 2814 (containing Earth, among other planets) is under watch by more than one Lantern.

Green Lantern shirt in Lights Out.

  • In Lights Out, there is a man wearing a Green Lantern shirt. This is likely just an Easter egg, not intended to imply there is a public Green Lantern at the time.[4]
  • Instead of wearing their iconic green masks from the comics, Green Lanterns wear green makeup around their eyes as seen on Yalan Gur.[5] Although, as the masks, much like their armor, were manifestations of the rings, and Gur was a Lantern from 5000 years ago, it's possible this was done purposely, as the the original Lantern rings, the proto-rings, were very limited in their capabilities compared to the power rings used several millennia later.
