Green Lantern (Kyle)

This version of Kyle Rayner reflects the way the character appears post-Green Lantern #150. He’s a bit wiser, a bit more competent and a tad bit more powerful. I admit to preferring Hal Jordan even now, but I’m not in the “hate Kyle Rayner” crowd — he’s a different character and a good one.

History:From DC Comics’ Online Secret Files

The bright light of 3600 Green Lanterns once coursed through Kyle Rayner’s body. For months, Kyle thought that his increased energy merely reflected greater control of his power ring. But while Kyle had indeed mastered what may be the most formidable weapon in the universe, the true source of his unimaginable might was a bizarre fusion of two different energies: the power that once gave life to Oblivion and the remaining emerald energies Parallax channeled to reignite Earth’s extinguished sun. Claiming that power transformed Kyle into Ion, a being of godlike abilities. Forsaking the title of Green Lantern, Kyle entered a new form of existence. As Ion, he was everywhere at once, making a greater difference than Kyle had ever dreamed possible. But Kyle’s enhanced power and augmented awareness held one dark drawback: Ion was one with everything, yet Kyle Rayner could no longer sleep or separate himself from the overwhelming responsibilities. Rather than sacrifice his dwindling humanity, Kyle abandoned omnipotence, bleeding off the vast power at his command (recharging the Central Power Battery on the planet Oa and helping to create a new group of Guardians in the process) and reaffirming his Green Lantern’s oath. Once again limited only by his willpower and imagination (though it still needs periodic recharging), the power ring continues to make Green Lantern one of the most powerful heroes on Earth.
