From DC Comics
Seventy-five years ago, a railroad man named Alan Scott hoisted the very first emerald lantern...and a comic book legend was born. Many years and an entire spectrum of Lantern Corps later, Green Lantern remains one of the most popular super heroes to ever hit the page. In this exclusive DC All Access comics clip, we look at the many different looks and characters associated with Green Lantern over the past 75 years—from Scott's Golden Age glory, to Hal Jordan's Parallax-infused infamy, to Simon Baz's gun-wielding ring-slinging, and everything in between.
July 2015 marks the 75th Anniversary of Green Lantern. Allan Scott the original Green Lantern, created by Martin Nodell, was introduced in All-American Comics #16 (July 1940). Published by All-American Publications, one of three companies that would eventually merge to form DC Comics.
Over the years there have been many more GL's with Hal Jordan becoming the most well known.
Here we will be celebrating all things Green Lantern in honor of there 75th anniversary.
