What's What

The ring can trace stray energies left behind by individuals and send signals to call for help. It can mind link to another mind to communicate. Stronger will power can have the ring cure or remove diseases. The ring can teleport and also the wearer can pass through walls. It can also answer questions and aware of time and space displacement. The ring can even mindwipe, erasing memory. Lastly the ring can protect the mind from mind blast and it can shoot green beams against enemies. The ring cannot do anything against the color yellow

Power Battery:

The power battery is necessary for every Green Lantern. It recharges the power ring every 24 hours. It can also track down a power ring if it gets stolen or lost. The power battery has unlimited power. Some villians did manage to use the power directly from the battery.


Hal Jordan

Other heroes had magic words, like "Abra-Kadabra!" or "Shazam!". In the Green Lantern Corps, the ring wielders had their magic words too. They chose their own. These words were not needed for the power, but they added a little something extra to the characters.
