My Green Lantern by kameleon84 My Green Lantern by kameleon84
I had the idea to redesign key members of the JLA which ended up with me revamping the league itself down to a slight name change (Justice League Alliance).
I haven't gotten round to doing any others as of yet but here is my Green Lantern.

I think the inspiration for this is kind of obvious and doesn't need a lot of explaining but I will anyway. To me, thing Green Lantern ring is supposed to be the most powerful weapon in the universe and can create anything the wearer thinks of. This seems to include what they are wearing. So I started thinking, why imagine a costume but instead a battle suit powered by the ring in which all the Green Lantern capabilties could be used, ie. flight, energy projection, survival in space, shield, whatever?
Looking at it now it does kind of remind me of the Iron Lantern comic that came about a few years back (really showing my age there) but I still like it. The suit is basically an armoured version of Hal's original costume (mask included) but mixed with elements of Kyle's original costume as well. My idea was that ALL the Green Lantern Corps would have the same armour unlike the actual Corps who'se costumes all seem to differ. the only exceptions would be people like Kilowog who would have a more Hulkbuster-ish look to his armour.

For those interested, here's my original Batman and Superman:

Reminds me a lot of Iron Lantern. Its a solid concept combining two the most awesome non mutant or metabiological powers ever. A power ring and power armor.

Yeah I get that quite a lot. The intent was never Iron Lantern, nor was it Iron Man. The intent was more Power Rangers than anything but the movie version of their suit. I had to chunk up the legs though to suggest he was capable of flight.
I think any armoured character is going to get some kind of feel of Iron Man in the end. And that kind of suit does make sense for a Lantern. Let's check powers: flight, strength, speed, energy projection/repulsar rays, onboard computer system all check. I think it's be cool if maybe the Lanterns could communicate and download information from the Book of Oa kind if like how Tony talks to JARVIS in the movie.

It'd be cool if this was the Green Lantern uniform for the movie. Nice job.

Yeah. I do think if/when Green Lantern shows in a movie the suit will have a more tech looking suit than his previous movie version. Don't get me wrong, as costume designs I really like the reasoning behind the suits design. It works for the movie. I just think for the comic, an armoured suit doesn't just look cool, it's completely logical too. The ring is basically a computer hooked up to a central super-computer. Plus the Giardians made the Mahunters beforehand but their weakness was no emotions and reprogrammable. So why not take that tech and it ON a being. Hell, even Stell could be a former Manhunter that evolved to have emotion (like Data in Star Trek). So much potential in that idea I think.

Definitely too Iron Man for my tastes. Although tweak the design a bit, and it could make a fantastic design for Stel, the robot Green Lantern. Or maybe even Tekik, the robot Sinestro Corps member.

Granted, I did look up images of Iron Man but equally I also looked up Techjacket, Robocop, Steel, Ultron, etc. I actually had more in mind a scene from a film I loved as a child:


Yes, Michael Jackson: Moonwalker. But this kind of armour being created from light was always the goal. And those little red light things that appear about 1:38 into the video creating additional shielding is why this design has so many little lights on him.

That actually makes a lot of sense. Just use the ring as more of a power source for a suit that can tap into the capabilities of the ring instead of using the ring itself and draining power.

Brilliant.
