This is the fourth of five caches in the Super Hero Series of caches that I am placing. The series includes Batman, Superman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman. These are just a few of my heroes that came to life in comic books when I was much younger than I am today.
*** CAUTION ! *** GREEN LANTERN'S RING'S POWER SOURCE MAY BE HOUSED IN A NEIGHBORING BUILDING, AND GREAT 'STEALTHNESS' IS REQUIRED TO KEEP THIS CACHE HIDDEN! USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM IF POSSIBLE. THERE ARE TONS OF MUGGLES IN THIS AREA and LOTS OF TRUCKS COMING AND GOING FROM NEARBY PARKING AREA. PARK ON SURROUNDING SIDE STREETS. KEEP A WATCHFUL EYE and BE CAREFUL !
The caches in my Super Hero Series are:
Super Hero Series: Superman (GC3P34T)
Super Hero Series: Aquaman (GC3P35H)
Super Hero Series: Batman (GC3NM9A)
Super Hero Series: Green Lantern (GC3P356)
Super Hero Series: The Flash (GC3P2WE)
The character's first incarnation, Alan Scott, appeared in All-American Comics #16, and was later spun off into the first volume of Green Lantern in 1941. That series was canceled in 1949 after 39 issues. When Silver Age Green Lantern Hal Jordan was introduced, that character starred in a new volume of Green Lantern starting in 1960 and has been the main protagonist of the Green Lantern mythos for the majority of the last fifty years.
The story being Green Lantern was that test pilot Hal Jordan was taken from Edwards Air Force Base in California to a dying alien in a crashed ship. The alien, Abin Sur, tells Jordan that he has the ability to overcome great fear, and asks if he will accept the power ring of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic law enforcement unit operating throughout the universe. Jordan reluctantly accepts, and is trained on the planet Oa where he becomes a legendary officer of the Corps . Operating from Earth and throughout Space Sector 2814, Jordan defends the Earth and its neighbors from domestic and extraterrestrial threats as the Green Lantern.
Green Lantern was able to, with the power of the green lantern in a ring he wore, generate green light shapes of any type that took on physical characteristics. Green Lantern used this power to fight crime, but could also levitate and be transported to any destination, and could use it as well as a protective shield or 'bubble' around himself and others when needed. His ring's power had to be regenerated periodically from the green light in a special lantern that was the ring's power source.
