Guardians of The Universe - Guardians Known By Name

Guardians Known By Name

It has been said that "Guardians do not take names", yet when Krona invaded Oa in the War of the Green Lanterns story-arc, he revealed that all Oans have names but have since forgotten them, nonetheless a few of their lot have been named in the stories. Among them:

  • Appa Ali Apsa - Appa Ali Apsa (a.k.a. "the Old-Timer" and/or "the Mad Guardian") is one of the immortal Guardians of the Universe, creators of the lawkeeping Green Lantern Corps. After Oliver Queen points out to the Guardians that they are too distanced from the mortals they have sworn to protect, the Guardians choose Appa Ali Apsa as their representative to experience life on Earth. Travelling across the U.S.A. with Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Green Arrow Oliver Queen, Appa experiences many adventures and learns some valuable lessons about life. He later renounces his Guardian title, powers and immortality and chooses to travel the universe. Later, after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Appa Ali loses his mind and is killed by his former brethren.
  • Basilus -
  • Broome Bon Baris -
  • Dawlakispokpok - A renegade Guardian of the Universe.
  • Krona - A renegade Guardian of the Universe.
  • Ganthet - Created the Blue Lantern Corps along with Sayd.
  • Herupa Hando Hu - His name is revealed by Krona.
  • Lianna - A second-generation Guardian who was altered by Heartstone and raised by a Zamaron.
  • Pazu Pinder Pol -
  • Ranakar -
  • Sayd - Sayd is a fictional character in the DC Comics universe. She is now an exiled member of the Guardians of the Universe. Where most of the Guardians are void of emotion and rigid in their compliance to standard policy, Sayd's sensibilities are more in line with those of Ganthet, a Guardian known for his non-traditional mindset. The two are exiled (in part) for their love for one another. In Green Lantern #150 Kyle Rayner (as Ion) relights the Central Power Battery on Oa and creates a new group of Guardians. However these were created as children in a mix of male and female, instead of elderly adult males, as the originals were. Ganthet's hope was that these children could be raised to become better Guardians than their predecessors were. Sayd was one of the members of the second generation of Guardians of the Universe, and one of the six female (out of twelve total) members of the organization. She is now the Guardian of the Orange Corp, having traded her service as a Guardian to Larfleeze in exchange for the latter's aid during the Blackest Night event (true to the Orange light of Avarice, he wanted to have his own guardian). Sayd has since revealed herself to be the one behind the ring thefts, a tactic used to bring the New Guardians together.
  • Scar - Her true name is unrevealed. Her namesake is gained due to a distinctive scar on the right side of her head after fighting the Anti-Monitor. Subsequently, she began to deviate considerably from the traditional personality of a member of the Guardians. She was depicted as dark, militaristic, and fascinated by the power of death. Her eyes, which usually bore the symbol of the Green Lantern Corps in the pupil, contained the symbol of the Corps with whom she was presently associating (e.g., the symbol of the Sinestro Corps appeared in her pupils when she informed them of Sinestro's impending execution). She began encouraging the Green Lantern Corps to take on a more aggressive stance in the pending War of Light.
  • Valorex -

There were also others that became Guardians of the Universe but aren't actually Oans.

  • Master Builder - John Stewart, the only mortal Guardian of the Universe
  • Sinestro - Sinestro briefly bonds with the White Entity, becoming the first White Lantern, and claims the title of Guardian of the Universe, before losing the connection in the fight against Nekron in the Blackest Night
  • Sodam Yat - The last Guardian of the Universe in the 30th Century.

Famous quotes containing the word guardians:

    Let us enquire. Who, then, shall challenge the words? Why are they challenged. And by whom? By those who call themselves the guardians of morality, and who are the constituted guardians of religion. Enquiry, it seems, suits not them. They have drawn the line, beyond which human reason shall not pass—above which human virtue shall not aspire! All that is without their faith or above their rule, is immorality, is atheism, is—I know not what.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
