We’ve all had days when we need a pick-me-up, but no amount of caffeine or sugar does the trick. The next time coffee or candy bars let you down, why not recharge yourself with mighty cosmic energy instead?
This Green Lantern 1:1 Scale Power Battery and Ring Prop Replica from DC Collectibles won’t really let you tap into the reservoir of fantastic force the Guardians of the Universe created at the center of the cosmos. But it may make you feel better as you imagine yourself powering up like a member of the Green Lantern Corps!
Powering the Battle Against Evil’s Might
The first green lantern in DC Comics lore appeared in All-American Comics #16 (July 1940). Carved from a “green flame” meteor, it and the ring made from it gave engineer Alan Scott powers of flight and intangibility. He took “Green Lantern” as his superheroic name.
But nearly two decades later, DC gave its wartime superheroes a sci-fi makeover that marked the advent of comics’ Silver Age, and the green lantern became an alien artifact.
In Showcase #22 (October 1959), Abin Sur – the extraterrestrial Green Lantern Corps member who patrolled Earth’s neck of the galaxy, Sector 2814 – suffered a fatal spaceship crash. Before he died, he gave his power battery and ring to test pilot Hal Jordan. Jordan recited the oath that made him the first human Green Lantern:
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!
Like interstellar knights questing for justice, the members of the Green Lantern Corps carry power batteries that channel energy from the Central Power Battery on Oa. Whatever the Lanterns imagine helping them fight evil and chaos, their power rings create—as long as they’ve been fully charged with the Green Light of Will from the batteries.
Let Your Green Lantern’s Light Shine
The epic Blackest Night and Brightest Day storylines (2009-2010) revealed that power batteries and rings of other colors exist. Each draws on a different power in the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum. DC Collectibles has released scale replicas of those batteries and rings, too, including the Yellow Lantern that harnesses fear.
But no Green Lantern is complete without the most iconic battery and ring at its center!
This 1:1 scale battery reproduces those the Green Lantern Corps carries. Measuring about 11 1/2-inches tall, 10-inches wide, and 4-inches long, it’s made of sleekly finished polyresin and plastic and has a metal handle.
Best of all, the battery lights up as you move the power ring, which bears Green Lantern’s familiar symbol, close to it!
Shine the light of your commitment to all that’s right – and to one of DC Comics’ coolest superhero concepts. Make and keep your oath to order the Green Lantern 1:1 Scale Power Battery and Ring Prop Replica today!
