Blue. Superman inspires more hope than almost any other superhero. Dick Grayson and Steve Rogers would also make excellent Blue Lanterns.

He could be a number of different rings, actually. He exhibits strong signs of compassion, hope, and will.

  • However, Indigo Lanterns clearly don't have their priorities straight and they suck, so I wouldn't want him on there side.
  • He would be a great fit for hope, and I can definitely see them making an else worlds story for him being Saint Kal-El, but their power's are really dull since they dont work unless a GL is around. Plus, they're also sort of pacifist's which wouldn't work out for Clark since he's always effing sheet up in the name of Truth, Justice, and The American Way.
  • There have been numerous stories of him being a GL, so we know he'd be a good GL.

But also, you have to take into account the characteristics that aren't really highlighted. AKA these will NEVER happen OR they could be good else world's stories (take note DC, I'm coming for you).

  • Depending on the villain he's facing, such as a small time crook or a weakened adversary, plus the anger he's exhibiting, he could force great fear within his opponents which would make him viable for the yellow ring, possibly a good fit for Ultraman.
  • Then there's also his anger. Get superman mad enough and his rage is a force to be reckoned with. Say an enemy actually successfully killed Lois Lane infront of Superman. Surely he's going to get ANGRY. I think his rage will be great enough to attract a floating Red Lantern ring and turn him in a rage head.

I don't really think he could be an Orange Lantern or a Star Sapphire...but that's my thoughts on what ring Superman could have both realistically and elseworld.

Either blue or indigo.

The greatest Lantern in the universe.

Either Blue or Green.

Green, Blue, White......at the same time

Blue or Indigo. But I lean towards blue because the hope Superman gives is more than the compassion he has, though both are in no short supply. Third choice would be green.

@Gambit1024: Indeed he would be a Blue Lantern. He inspires in life and in death. The hope he gives is eternal no matter who the S shield is being worn by or not even worn at all. On the plus side the Justice League would have used up the whole "Big Blue Boyscout" joke by then.

@ArturoCalaKayVee: dude that post was awesome and i agree with you supes being a pink lantern would not work cause i dount think supes can pull off just wearing a pink banna hamik

@Z3RO180: Haha, thank you very much, but I dunno, I think Kal could pull it off it he really wanted too :P

@ArturoCalaKayVee: I don't think he could be indigo. I thought those are people who don't normally feel compassion without the ring. (Don't ask me how Kyle got one).

It's still unknown how Kyle got one but that's what we're going to find out in the New Guardians book. Both Ray Palmer and John Stewart were Deputy Indigo Lantern's for their compassion so I don't think that's true. I know the Indigo tribe can, somewhat, force their rings onto people who have no compassion and then make them...like...brainwashed?

@ArturoCalaKayVee: okay, thanks!

Blue would be the best for him if we were to give him any other he would be just far to powerful but I would love for him to get an orange ring

RED!!

KRYPTON!!!!

Hard to say really. Of the five "good" corps (White, blue, Indigo, Green, Star Sapphire), it almost seems he would be worthy of carrying all five of those at once. The likeliest though is Blue no doubt...but Indigo I say runs a close second.

I would've thought Indigo, but from the few scans of GL I've seen the Indigo Tribe are nothing like how I'd imagine them to be. So yeah, Hope seems like a good fit.

Blue

IMO Superman is most deserving of white.

#21 Posted by buttersdaman000 (8797 posts) - - Show Bio

Blue or Green, but most likely Green. Superman aint no pacifist

#22 Posted by Onemoreposter (3557 posts) - - Show Bio

Red lantern....definitely red

I would agree, but Blue works because of his normal M.O. He will fight when he needs to and still has his normal powers. Also lets not forget it would be great in JLA comics when he is next to a green lantern.

He would have a few rings Blue / Green / Indigo and white

I prefer him as a Blue Lantern opposed to a GL but either work.
