The Green Lantern power ring is the most powerful weapon in the universe. Drawing from the strength of the user’s willpower, the ring creates hard light constructs in any form the ring-bearer can think of. The power ring also gives the user the power of flight, an energy protection shield and access to records and data while on duty.

The Guardians of the Universe are one of the oldest and wisest races in known history. Realizing that the universe needed order and protection, they created the Green Lantern Corps. Armed with power rings that allow them to control the green light of willpower, the Green Lantern Corps has become one of the most powerful entities in existence. There are currently 7,200 Green Lanterns patrolling the 3,600 charted sectors of space (two Lanterns per sector), with more being added as the universe is explored further.
The Green Lantern Corps is stationed on the planet Oa at the center of the universe. On Oa they have a training program, living quarters, Sciencell prisons, the revered Book of Oa, the Guardians themselves and the Central Power Battery. The Lanterns have needed these resources as they’ve been put to the test against the greatest evils in the universe, including an all-out war with the dead Black Lanterns and the unstoppable Third Army.
The Green Lantern Corps oath is as follows: “In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might beware my power... Green Lantern’s Light!”
