which is the most powerful lantern color? 
 
if thats too general, in other words, which color has shown the most power by itself? 
#2 Posted by RedRobin92 (238 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd have to say the Red Lantern Corps. There power is pure, unchecked, unstoppable rage.

#3 Posted by PrinceIMC (5422 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say the Indigo Tribe because they seem to be able to channel the powers of any other lantern.

Beige. Its like the second equal strongest color white, but browner. Or its like the second equal strongest color black, but browner.

Blue is said to be the strongest in the spectrum. hope can be truly unstoppable if people use it the right way

Blue requires a green wielder to be near by to actually achieve their full power.

Then how can they be considered powerful on their own? Same for the Indigo Tribe.

White as shown recently has to be the most powerfull.

If we're excluding White and Black (which are technically not colors), then I'd go with Orange pre-depowering.  
 
I'd also specify if we're going on a single Lantern basis, or by the entire Corps of each color.

I think the Orange is only considered to be so powerful because of the fact that Larfleeze is its only wielder enabling him to go toe to toe with the Guardians. BUT the Orange ring is ineffective to the Blue Power Ring since "Avarice cannot consume Hope". Orange is also ineffective against Star Sapphire Rings.
The White Lantern Ring has been shown to do things that the others could and many things that they are not possible of doing. 
I agree with Jedi that although the Blue Lantern Ring can do some pretty impressive things the fact that a Green Lantern Ring has to be in the vicinity for it to give the wielder abilities other than flight and a shield that protects that from the vacuum of space puts a major handicap on them. 
Out of all of the Rings shown in the DC Universe I would go with the White. 
 
Most of the other rings have been seen to be neutralized somehow by one Corps or another. But each is powerful.

Blue and Green combined. 
Individually i guess the white lantern.

caucasian doesn't mean white btw. I don't know why people think it does since it means a person whose origins are the caucus of Asia. ;p
 
Orange is also pretty strong too considering you are basically a one man corp/army.

Well Sinestro was the most powerful as the White lantern, even though all colors combined in a spectrum would be Black. I guess they didn't want to make a rainbow lantern.

#24 Posted by Iridium (134 posts) - - Show Bio

Not sure there is one, all the colors are equally powerful just different.
It is up to the warrior, not their weapon.

#25 Posted by Trodorne (2592 posts) - - Show Bio

Orange, only because the power is not being shared by multiple people and just one person uses the power, plus the entity is stored in the battery for additional power.

#26 Posted by Son_of_Magnus (15258 posts) - - Show Bio

White and Black
 
Not counting life and death
Red offensively
Blue Defensively

But the problem with Orange is that its powers can be negated by the Star Sapphire Ring as well as the Blue Lantern Ring.
#28 Posted by KingSolomon (164 posts) - - Show Bio

I would say either green and if it counts white. Reason for green is, its straight up the most stable, no hardcore side effects...
#29 Posted by Girth (1041 posts) - - Show Bio

Red would be the most powerful, but it is uncontrollable. Green is more well balanced.

#30 Posted by .o0Johnny0o. (757 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought the whole point was that they all balance one another out?  Like an elaborate scissor, paper stone system except for the 'meta' rings like White and Black?
 
So things like 'hope prevails over fear but hope is useless without will' etc make sense.

#31 Posted by PrinceIMC (5422 posts) - - Show Bio

Indigo's don't need a lantern around for them to use their powers do they? John Stewart recently used the Indigo ring to turn into a black lantern and there weren't black lanterns around.

Reds have proven to be very dangerous but they have a number of weaknesses. If their ring is ever removed they would die and also a Blue Lantern can nullify their energies and extinguish their red flame

Yup the point is to have it balanced.

To date the only Corps that seems to have that type of handicap are the Blue Lanterns who need to have a Green Lantern around in order for their ring to give them abilities other than flight, limited energy projection and a shield that protects their bodies from the vacuum of space.

In terms of power, the indigo tribe is the most powerful solely because they can use other Lanterns powers themselves. Now, in terms of singular power, Larfleeze is the most powerful because he has all that power to himself.

Mogo had some of the black energy in him since Blackest Night when he sucked in all the black lanterns. That is the energy the john used in that book.

@Kallarkz
Well, unlike the Blue lanterns, the Indigo tribe can use their own rings to do use projections and almost everything the other spectrum colors can without needing another lantern near them, but when they are in the same vicinity as another lantern, they can use their power. All of this, of course, is well known to anyone who keeps up the the Lantern Families or is into DC at all. The cool thing about it is, they can use any extent of the power as they wish and they don't even have to be a veteran Lantern of that specific color. John Stewart had the ring for like, not even a day and he blew up Mogo when handling the death spectrum for the first time. That is a HUGE feat that no other lantern can do considering Mogo is arguably the strongest Lantern and the heart of the Corps.

Blue really isn't much of a defense against anyone other than Red or Orange since they can negate them, but even still they are pretty useless on their own without a Green Lantern.

I like that about them. They're not there to police the universe like the Green Lanterns. They're more there to inspire people. They aren't a combat corps.

I completely agree. I love what they stand for and the power they have when a GL is present, but in this discussion they are not the most powerful alone.

Yeah definitely not the most powerful on their own. I'm excited for the New Guardians to see how they'll actually work together.

Each of the Lanterns showed extreme proficiency when using the rings of the other Corps. 
I have not seeing anything though that shows that a Indigo Tribe member can mimic the powers of other Lantern Rings...What exactly would there be to mimic anyways that is not inherent to all the power rings? Most power rings can heal, create energy constructs, force fields, communicate..etc. 
In what issue did the Indigo tribe show the ability to sync with other lantern rings and then use that rings unique abilities?

Wait, are you serious? It happens almost every time an Indigo Tribesman uses their powers. In the instance (i keep using this one because it is most recent) john Stewart used the black essence  that was still inside of Mogo to produce a huge rifle that made Mogo explode. I know what you are thinking "Green Lanterns blow up planets all the time so it's not a great feat", but this is Mogo we are talking about here. The heart of the Corps and a Green Lantern himself. It would have to take the power of a black lantern to kill him and John used that power because of the Indigo ring.

I'll review more back issues. But i am not entirely sure that the Indigo Ring only is what allowed John to use the Black energy...i do remember a member of the Indigo Corps saying they couldn't wield it actually because it was devoid of emotion...But I remember a picture of an Indigo member with a black lantern symbol. Could be that she had become a Black Lantern but i'll look for the issue and continue when i've found out. 
 
 
But its true that the Indigo Tribe has no apparent weaknesses to other Corps same with the Star Sapphire Power

@Kallarkz: He had trouble at the beginning, yes, but that was solely because he was a new user to it. There are so many instances where Indigo-1 has used another Lantern's energy. This is from Wiki 
 
The most distinct characteristic of the Indigo Tribe is their use of power staffs. In Blackest Night #5, it's established that Indigo Tribe members use their staffs instead of power batteries to charge their rings. In addition to being able to store indigo light energy, they are also capable of producing the power of other emotional lights as well, providing Indigo Tribesmen access to the abilities of other Corps. In Green Lantern (vol 4) #48, Indigo-1 is shown "channeling" a black power ring (her face taking on a decayed appearance), but it's unclear if the Indigo Tribe is capable of using the power of the Black Lantern Corps, as she describes their power source as a "black hole of emotion."
