Only 100 more t-shirts to go!
All I knew about the Green Lantern before today was he (they) got his (their) powers from a ring, there was more than one Green Lantern, and the one weakness was anything yellow.
What I didn’t know and learned today:
DC not only had 118 Green Lanterns listed (http://www.dccomics.com/sites/greenlantern/?action=corps), but also has Red Lanterns, Blue Lanterns, Black Lanterns, and 4 other groups that use power rings.
The Green Lantern most people are familiar with is Hal Jordan (http://www.dccomics.com/sites/greenlantern/?pr=haljordan)
There is a pretty cool fan made trailer for a Green Lantern movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hTiRnqnvDs), which is not the movie coming out starring Ryan Reynolds (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1133985)
If a Green Lantern overcomes the fear of yellow, it can use the powers on yellow objects.
The Green Lantern 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!
