Green Lantern (1990 - 2004) Issues
One of the biggest chapters in Green Lantern history begins here, in 'Emerald Twilight' part 1! Hal returns to ground zero and attempts to use his Power Ring to resurrect the devastated Coast City--but his acts come at a terrible cost! Featuring the first appearance of Kyle Rayner!
Needing more power to bring back the destroyed Coast City, an out-of-control Hal Jordan heads to Oa. The Guardians send the entire Green Lantern Corps to stop him. But Hal was always the best...and the rest of the Green Lanterns are about to find out why! 'Emerald Twilight' part 2.
The conclusion of 'Emerald Twilight.' In order to stop a Hal Jordan who has gone mad with grief, the Guardians of the Universe have unleashed the diabolical Sinestro, Hal's former mentor and greatest adversary. It's the final showdown: Hal Jordan vs. Sinestro to the death, all culminating in the debut of a new Green Lantern!
The trio known as Inferno is more than a match for two Green Lanterns, so Jade is in serious trouble when Kyle gets critically injured and taken out of the fight! Jade's got no time to help him out though, as Inferno's three members--Ember, Torch and Blaze--try to take out not only two Green Lanterns in one day, but all of Manhattan!
Joker Last Laugh, Pt. 22 of 33. One of Green Lantern's original villains returns. Grayven, the son of Darkseid, has been "Jokerized" and has decided to become the ruler of New York City! Green Lantern has his hands full chasing down an insane and powerful threat, especially since Grayven's brought some decidedly unfunny toys with him from Apokolips!
Kyle's powers have been increasing with experience, but his most recent adventures have pushed him farther than he's ever gone before, and he may not be coming back! Jade, Sentinel and former Green Lantern John Stewart have to figure out how to make sure Kyle's mind stays intact while Kyle struggles for control over a power that is too much for one person.
It's the end of an era for Kyle Rayner, and the beginning of something far more dangerous than he's ever had to deal with. The Guardians of the Universe created the Green Lanterns to maintain order and peace, while their polar opposites, the Qwardians, believed only in bringing about disorder and chaos. Now their champions, Kyle and Nero, battle for control of the greatest source of power either of them has ever had access to. To the victor go the spoils, but the prize may prove too grand for either man to handle.
Before Jenny Lynn-Hayden took up the Green Lantern ring, she was simply Jade. Given powers through her lineage, she lost them protecting her father. All this may be changing thanks to the scope of Kyle's (now known as Ion) new powers. But as Ion's abilities increase, the concerns over whether or not Kyle should be trusted with this ultimate power grows in all of his peers.
Kyle's newfound powers as Ion may be the only thing that can help the JLA stop an alien invasion! But if that's true, why doesn't the JLA approve of what Kyle is doing? Kyle is forced to look at the way his god-like actions are affecting the world around him. If Superman can't convince Kyle to think twice about his world-changing deeds, then who can?
In the aftermath of the "Hand of God" storyline, we find a Green Lantern with a new outlook on his duties, as well as new tricks up his sleeve. There's not going to be any rest for anyone, however, as an infectious madness without rhyme or reason grabs hold of New York City, starting with one of Earth's former Green Lanterns!
Green Lantern, Sentinel and Jade have their hands full trying to save New York from itself! An uncontrollable madness has gripped the citizens of New York, and not even the combined might of our heroes will be able to control it. Things go from bad to way, way, way worse as the source of the insanity comes forward, with a power that no Green Lantern can stop!
Green Lantern has faced impossible odds in the past and always has come out ahead. Now Kyle Rayner must go head-to-head with the greatest challenge yet...his high school reunion! The horror...the horror! Meanwhile, during his visit home, Kyle and his mom reconstruct their past and look toward a brighter future.
One of the most important people in Green Lantern's life has been attacked and left for dead. Kyle's about to discover that even with the most powerful weapon in the universe, he can't always protect those closest to him. Now that one of his inner circle is at death's door, Green Lantern is forced to examine just how vicious human beings can be. And no matter what actions he takes, both Kyle, and his legacy as Green Lantern, will begin to change with this issue.
Green Lantern pleads with The Flash and the JLA to help him go back in time and avert his personal tragedy, which leads his peers to confront him about the ethics of heroism, and the line of violence that Kyle may have crossed. Now, only the wisdom of Hal Jordan as The Spectre can save his soul. This issue heralds big changes for the coming months and features the unexpected return of a long-absent hero.
It's the moment you've been waiting for! John Stewart is back in the saddle again as Earth's new protector. Let's just say that he's not easing back into the job. John must learn to confront his past while he contends with the crimes of today. Sentinel lends a hand as this veteran Lantern discovers his new role and the potential for an ultra-violent future.
With all the old GL sectors abandoned, there's plenty of work to be done. Ganthet sends Green Lantern and Jade to a formerly protected sector where an uncharted planet is under siege by a group of mindless, super-powered creatures. Kyle and Jen are the last hope for a race of industrialist nomads!
