The Power ring is a piece of jewelry that grants the wearer incredible and incomprehensible powers and abilities by harnessing their emotional power. The item is issued to the members of the Green Lantern Corps.
Drawing on the power of the Guardians of the Universe, the power ring could theoretically do anything—its only limitations being the imagination and willpower of its wielder.
Frequently used capabilities of the power ring included: granting the wearer the ability to fly at tremendous speeds, even across interstellar distances; sustaining the wearer's life in hostile environments, including the vacuum of deep space; protecting the user from harm via a powerful force field aura; acting as an investigative tool for the wearer and, most familiarly, generating a beam which could be used for anything from simple offensive blasts to forming protective barriers or even more complex energy-constructs.
All power rings need periodic recharging once every twenty-four hours via the standard power battery. The process is not instantaneous so many Green Lanterns recite an oath while the ring charges.
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
no evil shall escape my sight.
Let all who worship evil's might
beware my power...Green Lantern's light!"
Other Power ringsEdit
The former Green Lantern Sinestro used a yellow Power ring comparable to those used by the Corps, but with the exception that is based on the emotion of fear instead of willpower.
