When it comes to superheroes, DC created some of the most iconic of all time. In the 1930s and ‘40s, the comic giant developed names like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. They became flagship characters, beloved by people around the world. Other superheroes like Green Lantern became popular too, but the identity wasn’t confined to one person. Mainstream audiences are familiar with characters like Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz. Before all of them, Alan Scott wore a power ring.
The original Green Lantern, Scott debuted in 1940. In contrast to the sci-fi background of other Lanterns, Scott’s powers came from magic. A founding member of the Justice Society of America, Scott is an important part of the superhero community.
