I did a search function for this and I didn't see a forum for this so I figured I could make this.

If any DC hero could have any Lantern Corps ring which one would be the strongest. As we all know the Lantern Corps rings are powered by emotions and various other aspects of humanity, so who would become the most powerful compared to anyone else with a ring that suits them. This is really started on the grounds that people say Batman with a Green Lantern Corps Ring becomes more powerful then Superman, but what would happen if superman had a ring? Would Batman still have more willpower and imagination then him? What about everyone else?

IIRC Batman actually got offered a yellow ring before.

Superman could have been the Green Lantern for earth instead of Hal Jordan only problem was Lanterns have to actual be from the sector they protect and Superman wasn't so Hal got the position.

So Martian Manhunter could have gotten the Green Lantern ring. Now that would be overpowered.

I doubt it since the Guadians IIRC had problems with the Martians so don't think the ring would choose anyone from that race.

I forgot about that, but if a Green Martian was really the only choice you'd think they can make an exception. If he is the best at being able to overcome fear. There's a Green Beetle on Young Justice which is a Green Martian with a Reach scarab, imagine if that character also got a Lantern Ring. Heh.

I thought Lantern rings and scarabs where enemies?

That is also true. Not sure if it is on Young Justice though. Mine was more of a hypothetical though anyway.

As I see it anyone who isn't a regular human with a Lantern ring would be powerful.

That would make a hell of a elseworld story.

I think Barbara Gordon would be cool with a ring

Hulk with a red power ring

Hulk is as powerful as he is angry

The red ring is powered by anger

That's basically a match made in heaven there

#16 Posted by Knightof24 (6 posts) - - Show Bio

A lot of focus on the green and yellow rings.

@SavageDragon: I agree

@Decoy Elite: What if Scarecrow got a yellow ring. Then he would be able to use his fear gas to amazing proportions

@Mastercodex: But doesn't the red ring also use your blood. Hulk wouldn't be able to heal with that.

Sorry I'm not posting a lot, my friend said I can only post so much per day when I start and I don't want to make the mods angry at me.

I was unimpressed with Blackest Night overall. Didn't help that the trade was terrible.

@Knightof24: You can make 5 posts a day until you hit a certain limit, I suggest you post more just so you can overcome that hurdle. You're only at 2.

The combination of all the rings should've made a black ring, not a white one. Just saying.

@Mastercodex: Okay thanks. Are you refering to color spectrums?

@Icarusflies: I don't own all of the Blackest Night comics :x Should I finish reading it online?

@Knightof24: NO. NEVER illegally download comics off the internet. Try your local library, borrow it from a friend, or save up, but DO NOT just go and find it on the Internet.

@Icarusflies: Sorry D:

I thought places like mangafox and other sites like that were completely legal and paid royalties to the owners D:

@Knightof24: I've never heard of that before, but my guess is that that's not true. Most comic companies only license out digital copies to one or two sites. In the case of DC Comics, that would be Comixology, and the Amazon Kindle Fire.

@Knightof24: No worries. And that sounds like a plan! :)
