According to DC continuity, the Green Lantern Corps has been in existence for three billion years, surviving multiple conflicts both internal and foreign. Currently operating divided as pairs amongst the 3600 “sectors” of the universe, over 7200 members (known commonly as Green Lanterns) are estimated to be serving within the Corps. Each Green Lantern is given a power ring, a weapon granting the use of incredible abilities that are directed by the wearer's own willpower.

Famous quotes containing the words green, lantern and/or corps:

    But bear in mind your lover’s wage
    Is what your looking-glass can show,
    And that he will turn green with rage
    At all that is not pictured there.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;
    It’s time to take the window to see Leerie going by;
    For every night at tea-time and before you take your seat,
    With lantern and with ladder he comes posting up the street.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    The Washington press corps thinks that Julie Nixon Eisenhower is the only member of the Nixon Administration who has any credibility—and, as one journalist put it, this is not to say that anyone believes what she is saying but simply that people believe she believes what she is saying ... it is almost as if she is the only woman in America over the age of twenty who still thinks her father is exactly what she thought he was when she was six.
    Nora Ephron (b. 1941)
