These immortals the Guardians of the Universe built a world from where they could watch over all of existence - the planet Oa.
A ring powered by the energy of will was sent to every sector of the universe to select a recuit, in order to be chosen by the ring it was said one must be without fear.
Together these recuits formed the intergalactic peace keepers known as - the Green Lantern Corps.
"We Are The Corps, We Are The Corps!"
The gravest threat the Corps ever faced was Parallax an entity that feed on the yellow power of fear.
After defeating the Corps finest warrior a search for a successor began.
And for the first time the ring chose a human.
"Become one of us."
"In brighestday, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power Green Lantern's light."
