Project Rooftop Green Lantern Redesign by kameleon84 Project Rooftop Green Lantern Redesign by kameleon84
I guess anyone who has me on their Deviant Watch will know that I've had this idea for awhile. The idea has always been based around the concept what would happen if the greatest weapon in the universe turned it's wearer into the most powerful weapon? First Attempt:

Second Attempt:

With any armoured character, I guess there's always going to be comparisons to Iron Man which wasn't the point. It's just the idea of the suit made too much sense. In my mind, the Guardians had the technology already by having already created the Manhunters. This would be the next step. The ring would create a wire-frame of light around the wearer which in turn would take the shape of the armour. The suit would still have all the traditional Lantern abilities; flight, enhanced strength and speed, as well as the construct creation. The constructs would just be made the same way the suit is.
Using the idea that the suit was mechanical, I toyed with the idea of Parallax being a computer virus corrupting the ring thus the suit thus the wearer and from there I designed Sinestro. And similarly, Ion would be the base program that powers the Lantern core.

There was other ideas I wanted to toy with like reanimated corpses as cyborgs for Black Lanterns and floating brains with holograms around them for the "immortal" Guardians but I didn't have enough time for those.

Some great work... now this what the next movie should look like, more understandable than what they did in the 2011 film.

You know, I go through phases with this design.  I started thinking the logo should be on the left of his chest, like the way Kyle does in the comics. To me, it would look more like a police officer badge as well as it would rest over his heart. I might take another crack at this for my own amusement.

We should work on a fan-made graphic novel together, lol. It would be awesome, and besides I actually do quite a bit of writing.

Well naturally it would be but I can't unfortunately. I'm still working on my own series NeverEnding and don't have enough time in the day to do that. Thanks though :)

I would have just chalked this up as another Iron Man Green Lantern crossover but you have certainly given this some thought. I think the closest we have gotten to seeing something like this would have been the Alpha Lanterns.

Yeah, this had the potential of the alpha lanterns as well. If I remember correctly, my idea was the Green Lantern's suit would have very similar tech to the Manhunters since the Guardians had created both. The abilities would be the same but what the Manhunters lacked was the imagination/creativity to create constructs. So the Alpha Lanterns were more the Guardians going back to their roots.
I'd I'm honest, there's one more thing I'd thought of but I'd need a reboot to really implement on it. I wanted the Weaponers to be a subdivision of the Guardians who were banished to the anti-matter universe for creating and selling of illegal weaponry to other enemy races of the Guardians. That's why the yellow lanterns would have so similar abilities to green since it's the same tech but a different source once Sinestro meets them when he is banished there.
