Golden Age of Comics




Green Lantern

The Green Lantern, created by artist Mark Nodell and writer writer Bill Finger, first appeared in July 1940 in All American Comics.

The Green Lantern's real name was Alan Scott who, after a railway crash, came into possession of a magic lantern which spoke to him and said it would bring power. From this, he crafted a magic ring which gave him a wide variety of powers. The limitations of the ring were that it had to be "charged" every 24 hours by touching it to the lantern for a time, and that it did not work on objects made of wood.

The Green Lantern was a popular character in the 1940s, as well as his own title he was featured in All-American Comics and in Comic Cavalcade along with Flash and Wonder Woman. He was a charter member of the Justice Society of America, whose adventures ran in All Star Comics. The Green Lantern comic book was cancelled with issue #38 in 1949.
