The White Lanterns used the power of the White Light to finally vanquish Nekron and the threat of the Blackest Night passed with the Black Lanterns disintegrating along with their power rings. The power ring first appeared in All-American Comics #16 on July 14, 1940. As of now, over 200 of the Sectors under the jurisdiction of the Guardians of the Universe, save for those that have already been rend asunder by a roving army of soulless, renegade Manhunter drones, have been systematically wiped out by Nekron and his forces. After his defeat, Hal is released from being a Black Lantern and returns to life as Green Lantern once again. [18], During the war between the New Gods and the various Lantern Corps, Black Hand reanimated the various Source Titans (including Relic) that were impeded within the Source Wall as Black Lanterns. An orange ring is powered by avarice (greed) and unlike the other Corps, only one living individual can wield the power of the orange light since orange ring-bearers are so consumed with greed that they cannot bear the thought of sharing their power with another. The Universal Ring is found in the crossover with Planet of the Apes, this ring was created by the Guardians of the Universe by using sorcery and science in conjunction. He also designed a recall feature that if his ring were ever removed from his hand, it could be summoned by him wherever he was. Otherwise, the blue rings are only capable of the abilities of ordinary Green Lantern rings. For example, during the Millennium crossover, Hal Jordan fights a Manhunter who psychologically attacks him, to make him doubt that the people he is protecting value the principles he is fighting for. But really it speaks to the nature of Don Hall. With their yellow power ring completely drained of its energy, they must provide it with the spark it needs to accomplish this feat by facing their own greatest fear. Laminski almost kills Simon and Jessica when he confronts them after trying to act as a hero, his greed and anger causing him to tap into both the Red and Orange rings, but when he is forced to face the damage that he has done, he reverts to an Indigo ring long enough to remove the Phantom Ring himself. "[25] Prior to the Spectre's conversion, Black Hand makes note of the Shadowpact members Zatanna and Blue Devil being surrounded by an aura of life. [43] Violet power rings can restore the recently deceased to life by drawing power from the heart of one that loves them. [46], Upon his return to life in the Green Lantern: Rebirth storyline, Sinestro was seen wearing a new yellow power ring. With The Avengers being overwhelmed by the God of Symbiotes' attack, the superteam might have figured … [66] As noted by Ray Palmer, the structure of black rings is similar to dark matter. No hard upper limit to the power ring's capabilities has yet been demonstrated; it is often referred to as "the most powerful weapon in the universe."[5]. The orange ring allows Larfleeze the same abilities of other Corps: flight, aura projection and orange light constructs. Ultraviolet Power Rings feed off the bloodlust and self-hatred of anyone they come in contact with, assimilating them into the Ultraviolet Lantern cause. The first yellow ring is acquired by Thaal Sinestro following his banishment to the antimatter universe of Qward, and could only be recharged by fighting a Green Lantern. [13], Originally, power rings were unable to affect objects colored yellow, though Lanterns have typically found ways around the limitation by indirect manipulation. At San Diego Comic Con 2009, Geoff Johns was able to discuss his reasoning behind choosing Black Hand as the leader of the new Corps, the character properties of the Black Lanterns, and his own goals in writing their depictions. For example, after the destruction of Oa, Kyle's ring has more power than ever before and does not need to be recharged for an extended period of time. The symbol on black power rings (a triangle pointing down, with five lines radiating up) is the same symbol used by Green Lantern villain Black Hand and his family. [16], It was believed for a long time that only the Guardians could create new rings, but Hal Jordan was able to prove this wrong when he reforged his ring after the disappearance of the rest of the Corps while using Krona's prototype gauntlet.[24]. In addition to the abilities granted to them by the rings, Black Lanterns retain any superpowers they may have had in life. [38] Mogo managed to purify Guy Gardner during the Blackest Night but as Guy has not been cured by a Blue Lantern, traces of the Red Rage remain. [50] Emotionless hearts such as the Scarecrow's render their bearers equally invisible to the Black Lanterns. Like all power rings, indigo rings are capable of the default Corps abilities of flight and protective aura generation. [29] When facing beings with warped mental states, or otherwise addled minds (such as Bizarro), the correlation between the emotion detected and the actual color that the Black Lanterns see is inverted. Before giving up the power of the Central Battery, Kyle further modified his ring. [40] However, the book sucks B'dg and Simon Baz into it and returns to Black Hand. [6] The uniform varies from Lantern to Lantern, based on anatomy, personal preference, and the social norms of their race. His dying essence crashes onto the dead planet of Ryut and is encased in the Black Central Power Battery. [23][10] However, the rings are, apparently, still unable to be used against a Guardian, although Hal Jordan was apparently able to overpower this restriction when he killed the renegade Guardian, Krona, in the final battle. This radiation can be focused by the wearer into a beam, similar in appearance and effect to a powerful laser. Reflecting on the limitations of the rings, Johns goes on to state that, even though magic is a "joke" to the black power rings (though the undead Giovanni "John" Zatara is capable of wielding black magic), Don is quite the opposite. Since Kyle had always been able to do so, wrestling against his fears for his entire life, his ring gained immunity against the yellow impurity and his particularly fortified will was instrumental in bringing about the rebirth of the Corps and setting an example to follow for the newer recruits.[16]. After Hal Jordan, Carol Ferris and Saint Walker make contact with the USS Enterprise, along with Doctor Leonard McCoy, Nyota Uhura and Pavel Chekov being chosen by reserve rings of the Indigo Tribe, Star Sapphires and Blue Lantern Corps respectively, Montgomery Scott's analysis of the rings allows him to create his own version. In the Marvel/DC crossover JLA/Avengers, after Photon drained and absorbed the energy from Kyle's power ring, Kyle was able to will his ring to recharge itself from the energies of a Cosmic Cube, coating Kyle in a chrome-blue glow and Kirby krackle. [54] To use the power of another Corps, Indigo Tribesmen must be in the vicinity of one of that Corps' members. In addition to their leader Atrocitus, Dex-Starr, a sadistic cat-like alien, Laira, a disgraced ex-Green Lantern, and Bleez, the right-hand woman of Atrocitus, various other DC Heroes have worn a red power ring over the years. Fictional organization appearing in comics published by DC Comics, "Black Lantern" redirects here. [43] Larfleeze and his constructs are resistant to magic and the abilities of green power rings, but do not retain the same protection against blue or violet rings. [2] Later writers revised this to be a fragment of an object called the Starheart, the result of the Guardians of the Universe collecting and isolating most of the magic forces in the universe. Black being an absence of light, he chose Black Hand as the leader of the Corps both for the character's name and also because of how much he enjoyed revamping villains while writing for Flash. Power rings are able to give off electromagnetic radiation of various frequencies. [49] This is because hope requires willpower to enact it. The Guardians have stated that, unlike a normal Green Lantern's ring, his ring is too contaminated with different emotional energies for them to track his location. Using the White Lantern power of Life, Hal Jordan commands "William Hand of Earth - Live", resurrecting Black Hand and removing him as the Black Lantern Corps' primary power source - which deals a crippling and eventually fatal blow to the Black Lanterns.[11]. [33] The rings, however, seek out beings with great rage. [28], The apparently random induction in the Corps, more than once contested by Ganthet as simple chance during most of the Green Lantern (vol. Gerard Jones revised this, in a story that revealed that the Guardians could change the weakness randomly and at will. [26] In "classic" zombie fashion, the bite of a Black Lantern induces a slow-acting necrosis that eventually turns the victim into a fellow Black Lantern. [2] Atrocitus comes to Earth and approaches Hand, recognizing him as a "doorway to the black" that possesses the power to bring about the Blackest Night. Hal then summons Nekron in order to defeat the First Lantern, Volthoom. [37], Some characters have been shown as able to resist black rings for various reasons, including being immortal,[79] being at complete peace after death, or being a Red Lantern. [42] Black power rings are capable of regenerating typically fatal injuries inflicted upon their users (including the complete dissolution). Black Hand returns to Earth and reanimates his family and various dead in the graveyard around his house, but Hal Jordan and Sinestro were able to defeat these "zombies" by detonating Sinestro's old yellow power battery. Prior to the Blackest Night event, Black Hand ("leader" and first member of the Black Lantern Corps) had already been established as a villain within the pages of Green Lantern. [77] The "touch" of a Black Lantern, used to remove their victims' hearts and drain them of emotional energy, can sever the connection between other Black Lanterns and their black ring. There, after detecting the "New Guardians", it opens its pages to unveil the history of Krona. In the current incarnation of the Corps, the ring originally possessed programming to prevent the wearer from killing sentient beings. The events transpiring throughout the titles of Blackest Night are a result of the darkness, once again, fighting back against creation. In Batman: The Dawnbreaker—part of a series of one-shots looking at darker alternate versions of Batman—when Bruce Wayne was chosen as the Green Lantern immediately after the deaths of his parents, his rage and emotional trauma were so great that he was able to overcome the ring's limitations against using lethal force by nothing more than strength of will. [15] After Black Hand is imprisoned in the Chamber of Shadows,[39] the Book of Black is retrieved by Green Lantern B'dg. They are also unaffected by magic.
