10 Things You Didn't Know About The Green Lantern Corps

Little known facts about the willpower-fuelled heroes.

The Green Lantern Corps are a powerful intergalactic military/police force who appear in DC comic books. Members of the Corps are hand-picked because they possess incredible willpower and are given a powerful trinket known as a Power Ring that, amongst other things, grants them a powerful force field, flight, the ability to amp their physical statistics by an enormous magnitude, energy blasts and, most iconically, the ability to create constructs of pure energy that are limited only by the wearer's imagination. Powered by the cosmic Ion entity which embodies willpower and guided by the wise and powerful Guardians of Oa - the planet that serves as the base for the Corps - the Green Lanterns can recharge their rings using a Green Lantern Power Battery, during which time they often recite the following oath:
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!!!
