Constructs?

#1 Posted by Satyrquaze (4542 posts) - - Show Bio

Does Hal Jordan (or any GL for that matter) have Energy based Constructs or Willpower based constructs? He really can't have both. Based upon recent issues of GL and GLC I'd say Willpower based, personally.

They're created by his will, but made out of energy.

So he gets two powers for the price of one?

I'd say that the constructs are BASED on Will, energy is simply the medium that the will travels through. therfore should be labeled accordingly.

Magic does not strike again, but i fear the curse of the browser tabbing did... same problem i have. if you have multiple tabs open in the browser then it posts multiple times....

i think someone else had this problem a while back and it posted the message 15 times for him... thats the record i think lol

the constructs are will based, the ring takes the 'idea' from the bearers imagination and uses the willpower to create it out of plasma energy (i'm sure the constructs were called plasma constructs as some point... can't remember where though but it stuck in my head for some reason.)

thats the way it works for the GL corps and ION, Parallax... it may work differently for Alan Scott because his powers are magical in nature...

I think I remember one of Kyle's constructs being referred to as a plasma prison (he created giants hands to surround the moon) in the 'Earth 2' graphic novel.

In your description, you give the impression that there would be no energy if there was no willpower, so it sounds as if the constructs are not energy based.

pretty much... if the character doesn't have the willpower to 'will' the constructs into existence then there is no construct.

they are 'Will Powered' but they are also energy constructs... you can't have them without either the willpower or the ring.

for some reason different types of Willpower affect the ring differently as well... for example, Cynical willpower works, but it takes tremendous effort for the barer.

I must agree with Metho's orginially it was simple, what the ring wielder thought up he could do. This was of course not true for things yellow in nature. The change from it being just imganation and into Will Power has come largely since the Rebirth of Hal Jordan, and the Corps in 05, with the revealation that yellow is the weakness due to fear, meaning that all those years, not one Gl could overcome fear and now, thousands have..so yeah you see the skeptism in my view.
