Sinestro handily. the rings are quite capable of producing kryptonite radiation. Even without that, a lantern still packs enough punch to take down a kryptonian, especially when we're talking about the greatest lantern of all time.

sinestro can produce radiation similar to kryptonite but its yellow isn't suppose to be green lol because really I heard yellow kryptonite does not affect supes. It has to be green to beat supes

False. Sinestro's ring is capable of creating yellow constructs. Radiation is radiation no matter the color. If he want's to make green K radiation, the color of his rings wouldn't stop him.

However, I have recently come to doubt if this ability is still canon...

It's all flimsy. In blackest night 0 it is stated that GL rings are: "capable of creating constructs of whatever shape they imagine. They also provide flight, force fields, communication and access to the nearly infinite knowledge held within the book of Oa".
This seems to limit the rings abilities, previously stated to be "anything you can think of", and leaves little room for creating radiation and other exotic abilities.

However, lanterns have been observed doing things outside of this new parameter relatively recently, such as duplicating a ring, making things invisible, generating air for an entire planet, regulating internal bodily functions and so on...
In the conclusion of SCW, a yellow ring told Mongul that it would take several days to catalog all of the rings abilities, which would presumably be far wider than what was written in BN0, but again, we all know how fond Geoff is of retcons..

Just thought to get that out of my head :P

Yeah ur prob right, but mostly it looks like he gave the short version in BN0, especially since it was supposed to be so new reader friendly.  As for this. Sinestro has the power he needs to do it. IF Kal doesn't speed blitz him. Dunno if he can react fast enough if he does.

Yeah, but it's worth mentioning that none of the abilities I've listed here (apart from ring duplication. way back in GL rebirth, and bodily functions regulations which was never shown on paper) were shown in books written by Johns, and Johns is the current the Authority on GL, so it's possible that these feats were "unsanctioned" by Johns himself.

I think that Supes may be a bit outmatched here.. though he is no normal kryptonian.. like superboy or kara... a GL may be able to put down a Kryptonian.. but then again we are talking supes here... I think it's a good match up.. but I'm going to have to side with Sinestro on this one...

If Sinestro's ring is capable of duplicating kryptonite radiation, than I'll go with Sinestro(otherwise Superman, though it would be extremely close with someone as resourceful as Sinestro *he would probably direct his energy through softer parts of the body like Superman's eyes, ears, etc.).

Superman win against Sinestro, Superman has gone up against Kyle Rayner and Hal Jordan.  I don't remember the issues now but if memory serves me he survived blasts from both GL's (in different stories).     Even if Sinestro creates Kryptonite radiation honestly folks how is that an automatic win?  Lex Luthor and other villians have been trying to stop Superman with kryptonite for decades, how has that worked for them?  Secondly the rings used by Green Lanterns and the likes of Sinestro are thought based weapons.  What good is a thought based weapon against someone who can move faster than thought?  Also Supeman knows what these rings can do so he's prepared as well.  Superman takes this easy.

#35 Posted by weaponx (1566 posts) - - Show Bio

@ Saber979: You bring up some good points but there are some things that I would like to comment on. Okay, so superman has survived some blasts from gl's, that doesn't mean that they can't hurt or stop him if it is a desperate situation. It isn't like if a character can take a few hits from superman that superman won't be able to defeat the opponent. You bring up a good point about other people using kryponite, but seriously, he almost always gets lucky somehow. With no interference... it might be a different story. Plus, using it the way a lantern could, means that it is probably way more versatile and affective. About thought based speed.... this argument is true technically, but then what does this mean for nearly anyone superman would fight? I mean, would be nearly impossible to ever hit the guy with anything if he was smart enough/ capable of being in this mode more often. Superman doesn't win easily, and kryptonite aside, I can see a lantern taking him out. Supes could win, but if I have to choose: Sinestro.

What is this speed blitz crap? So he's fast so are green lanterns Sinestro can teleport in and out of the anti matter universe, he and other lanterns have shown to be able to go at super speeds. Suermans been built up so much as this super strong character that they finally have gone out of there minds having him servive nova's from braniac. Supermans greatest power is to BS the audience. One moment he's punching Braniac the REAL Braniac, and its not having any affect, the next moment he's throwing braniac into a high security prison.......what a load of crap. There was a blackest night superman why didnt he just speed blitze everyone and kill them all, heck half the black lanterns didnt even use most of there powers. This has become a joke to some comic fans me included because of the BS feats he's been doing lately such as destroying darkseid with his voice. DC comics is to much plot device not enough substance. Green Lantern is the only comic i read from them regularly cause Sinestro corps put them on the map FOR ME. A contstruct is made out of light then why cant sinestro thus travel at the speed of light or at least his constructs? Sinestro is a little guy but he's not anyone to mess with, the lanterns like guy gardner and kyle rayner know this, only Jordon seemed to be on his level. So John Steward can hurt Superman he did do that in the REBIRTH series, Sinestro has shown to be more adept at using his power then most lanterns. He's also smart, Mongul is big and strong stronger then superman he tried to manhandle Sinestro and he did for a while but he underestimated Sinestro and got inpaled as well as traped in the Yellow Lantern Battery. That means......hey DONT FCK WITH SINESTRO no matter who you are, because he's a planner. He's not lex luthor planner his plans go far beyond killing one krypotonian, his plans are universal. he DID get the laws of Oa changed, He did lose a war but his goal was much bigger then eradicating the green lantern corps. He should have stayed the white lantern so what if he's got an ego........like Jordon doesnt?

Can Lanterns still create K - radiation post crises?

On one hand, Sups defeated enemies with Kryptonite in the past. On the other hand, Green Lanterns using it against Superman would have had morals on and Sinistro would make no such mistake..

I'd say if this is post crisis and a lantern (especially non-green lantern) has not been seen to use this, then I'm going to pick Sups, otherwise Sinistro, unless the power needed to do so leaves him vulnerable.

They can't make Kryptonite anymore. I don't think it's been done since Pre-Crisis.

kilowog has been given the feat of beating superman if not holding his own against him , sinestro could win but if supes was really in the fight he can be sinestro but not easily im siding with sinestro based solely on his awesome factor.

Superman.

1. Green Lantern / Yellow Lantern or any lantern has never made a kyrptonite thus far that i know of.

2. Superman has speed advantage.

3. Superman level beings have always been able to break GL constructs, i do not see how Sinestro's construct should be any different.

4. I wouldnt give Hal Jordan any better odds against Superman, and he has consistently beaten Sinestro. By my count its 2-5 in Hal Jordan's favour.

5. Kilowog beating Superman seems iffy, not to mention he had 2 rings.

Superman should be able to break his construct, and provided he can get it a couple of good hits Sinestro will go down, the same cant be said for sinestro.
