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.

Fire away buddy. Not like I'm using it. Plus, I was going to change the design anyway. Not so much the origin, but definitely the design...if I ever get time.

Green Lantern is always something I eventually come back to. I'm never full satisfied with the results.

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.

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.

:iconkameleon84:
kameleon84 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013
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.

Your yellow lantern idea makes me want to see yellow lantern alpha lanterns. I liked the green lantern alpha lantern storyline even if they did go crazy. So it would be interesting to see how yellow alpha lanterns would do seeing as how they are already evil.

Yeah I saw it. It still doesn't have that Alpha Lantern feel to it. And I know that wasn't what you were going for anyway.

kameleon84 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013
Yeah. I was going die an armoured Green Lantern suit. This would theoretically be the same suit but corrupted by the Parallax virus altering the initial shape of the suit and more importantly the colour. I did feel bad I had to take away some if the features from Sinestro that identify him so quickly, i.e. his face and head so I tried to bring that through and use the light that runs throughout areas of the suit to act as an outline for where his moustache would be.

I've read everything Geoff Johns has wrote for Green Lantern, yes. Anything else would be from Wikipedia or a Justice League story.

Have you heard of Iron Lantern, from the Amalgam series (where they fused various Marvel and DC characters together)?

While it's almost too Iron Man like to me, it's still an awesome design and I can understand why you designed it this way.

:iconkameleon84:
kameleon84 Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
Yeah. I mean, like I said, any character given armour that looks like armour is going to look like Iron Man. Techjacket if Image has elements of Iron Man. Rocket Red of DC has elements of Iron Man AND Crimson Dynamo. It's unavoidable.
With that, I think it was just to keep the concept believeable. Originally I left the helmet with eyes which I think furthered the comparison to Iron Man which was why I went with a visor this time putting the visit where the mask would be. Admittidly I had always tried to get a more Power Ranger look to the armour, like in the first film.

ThexSilverxWolf Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
If you were trying to give him a Movie Power Ranger look than I recommend not giving him too much armor and give him more of a spandex feel. Yes I know it was armor in the film but it was still spandex in spirit, more-or-less. I do understand if that is a little hard since you're trying for more of a mech suit look for Hal.

kameleon84 Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
Well my intent was the movie. For me, the show should use the sane look but I get it's too expensive for a tv show. I mean, they blow up and sparks fly when they're hit. It's already tech, it's just the production staff using spandex. And for me, that idea work, for Power Rangers and Green Lantern.

Haha yeah I always did notice the whole sparks thing when I was younger as well. And I do have an idea on how you can make a better Green Lantern/Movie Rangers look (I'm no professional artist or anything but I hope this helps). Draw one of the male Rangers (not Tommy), but be sure to remove the head, chest emblem, arms, and feet. Then remodify the suit as you see fit and add the GL chest emblem and make your own head, arms, and legs design. Like I said I'm no professional artist so this idea might not be any good. ^^;

Amalgram was basically a joint venture DC and Marvel creating characters from an amalgamation (get it?) of one or more characters from each universe. Iron Lantern, Green Lantern and Iron Man. Dark Claw, Batman and Wolverine. Spider-Boy, Spider-Man and Superboy. Super Soldier, Superman and Captain America. Etc etc.

Yeah. I didn't get to read a lot about it at the time. I managed to luckily get my hands on issue 1 of Spider-Boy when it was released but didn't really know what it was at the time.
Reading back on it was quite funny. Spider-Boy vs King Croc (the Lizard and Killer Croc. Pointless, I know) and Bizarrenage (Bizarro and Carnage). Looking back I think the funniest part is reading Dr Palmer and Dr Pym argue over the best methods to miniaturise something.
