Here’s What All the Green Lantern Power Rings Mean in DC Comics

so many green lanterns

Despite the Green Lantern’s ring of power first appearing in 1940 under Alan Scott, it was depicted as a magical ring. That was retconned when Hal Jordan took up the moniker and the Green Lantern Corps became a whole entity. The rings, now, were the creation of the Guardians of the Universe, who also created the Corps. Each ring needs to be recharged by a power Lantern of its corresponding color.

Then, in the late 2000s, writer Geoff Johns and artist Ethan Van Sciver decided to expand the spectrum of power rings in the Green Lantern mythos. The storylines “Sinestro Corps War” and “Blackest Night” introduced these new rings, corps, and the emotions/qualities they were connected to—one for each color, in addition to the green/willpower combo that we’re all so familiar with. So what does each one mean?
