HISTORY:

Though he was never an actual member of the Green Lantern Corps, the story of Alan Scott, first known as the Golden Age Green Lantern and now Sentinel, is older than the Corps itself.

Three and a half billion years ago a humanoid race from the world of Maltus sought to bring order to the stars. An offshoot of the race became known as the Guardians of the Universe. They sought to remove magic from the universe, and laid siege to the necromantic forces of the cosmos. The war was costly on both sides. The last to fall was the powerful Empire of Tears, finally subdued by the Guardians on the tombworld of Ysmault.
[GL2 # 40, 111-112, GLCA # 2]

After the wars, the stray mystical energies were gathered and bound in an orb called the Starheart. Its strength grew over the eons, and eventually it became self-aware and was known as the Green Flame of Life. Though the Guardians were powerful, the force of magic was something that could not be contained forever. In preparation for this day, the Starheart willed a small portion of itself to travel through the universe to fulfill its destiny. As it travelled through space, the piece of the Starheart gathered debris over the centuries until in resembled a meteor.
[GL2 # 111-112, SO # 18, GLCQ # 5, 7]

Three billion years ago, the Green Lantern Corps was created. Wielding the mighty power ring, the Green Lanterns continued the Guardians' quest for order.

Two thousand years ago, one of the greatest of the Green Lanterns, Yalan Gur of Space Sector 2814, was nearly killed by a yellow beast. The Guardians removed his ring's yellow impurity, rather than risk losing their best Green Lantern to an arbitrary weakness.

Yalan Gur was soon corrupted by his power, forcing his will on the people of ancient China. The Guardians had no recourse but to instill a new weakness in Yalan Gur's ring to humble their errant Green Lantern. He was now vulnerable to the wood of the peasants' weapons. The Green Lantern was badly injured by the angry humans.

So enraged by the humans' attack and by the Guardians’ apparent betrayal, Yalan Gur did not order his ring to repair his wounds. Mortally injured, he plummeted to Earth, the air friction setting him on fire.
[GL3 # 19]

The wandering piece of the Starheart felt Yalan Gur's pain and joined with the Green Lantern. He died during reentry to Earth's atmosphere, his life force absorbed by his power battery. Its casing melted and fused with the piece of the mystical Starheart. The Guardians left the remains on Earth, as a monument and prison to a fallen Green Lantern.
[GLCQ # 7]

The remains were found by local villagers and considered a meteor. Chang, a lamp maker that dabbled in sorcery, heard a mental cry from Yalan's tortured spirit. "Three times shall I flame green!" it spoke, "First - to bring death!" it promised in rage, "Second - to bring life!" in its remorse, and "Third - to bring power!" in his desire to live again.

Chang had read prophecy regarding the strange green meteor and took a part of it, frightening the people of the village. They had believed Chang and the fallen star were evil. Chang made a lamp of the molten metal, angering the villagers to the point of attacking him. They burned his books and it was believed they had killed him. In turn the villagers were killed by green flame of the lamp. "First - to bring death!"
[ALL-AMERICAN COMICS # 16, GL2 # 108-110]

The lamp passed through many hands over the years. It brought good luck and fortune to the good of heart. To the evil, though they might achieve mighty conquests, in the end it brought destruction.

In the twentieth century, the lamp was brought to America by a trio of adventurers who had tracked the pirates of the China seas. Eventually, it was abandoned just north of Gotham City, outside the Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane.

The lamp was found in a trash can and given to one of the patients, Mr. Billings. He had killed his broker in the aftermath of the stock market crash of 1929. Billings was fond of working with metals, and transformed the Chinese lamp into a train lantern.

As the lantern flamed with light, Billings was cured of his insanity. Soon, he walked out of Arkham Asylum a sane man. "Second - to bring life!"

In 1939, the lantern and engineer Alan Scott were onboard a train testing the newly constructed Trestle Bridge in the American West. A fellow engineer of Scott's was worried about their competitor in the bid for the bridge, an unscrupulous man named Albert Dekker. Scott did not believe Dekker would stoop so low as to sabotage their trial run, but he was wrong. While crossing the bridge there was a mighty explosion, the train was hurled to the ground below.

All on the train were killed, except for Alan Scott. The green lantern's flame illuminated the wreckage and spoke to Scott, telling him much of its story. The flame promised Scott that power over the dark, evil things would be his if he had faith in himself. If he lost his faith, he would lose his power, because willpower was the flame of the green lantern. Scott was told to carve away part of the lantern to make a ring of power. The ring would need to be touched to the green lantern once every twenty-four hours.

Dazed and confused, Alan Scott swore revenge on Dekker. He returned to his office and set to work on creating a ring. Scott found the metal formed easily, almost as if the ring were willing itself to be shaped. The lantern was his power source.

Willing the ring to find Dekker, Scott found the ring granted him amazing powers, such as flight and the ability to walk through walls. He had a strange immunity to metals as bullets and knives could not stop him, but wood proved a vulnerability. Though Scott's strength was that of a normal man, he fought well against Dekker's men.

Dekker tried to bribe Scott, but the engineer would have no part of it. A high altitude flight persuaded Dekker to confess. Albert Dekker died soon after signing his confession, the shock had been too much for him.

Alan Scott felt the call of destiny. He decided to make himself a dread figure to evil, dressing in a costume of red and green. He created an oath, based on the words of the green flame. "Third - to bring power!" From that day forth, Alan Scott was known as the Golden Age Green Lantern.

    Obsidian has became an entity that engulfs the whole planet with shadows and darkness. Alan destroys Obsidian with one PLANET SIZED blast, and takes all the shadows away. One of his most powerful feats...

    He hurts even Extant.

    Ultra-Humanite with the power of 5d Imp isn't even sure if Alan can be killed.

    Alan is set free from Ultra-Humanite's power, and he starts wrecking havoc
    alan19free1yp8.jpg
    alan19free2zn5.jpg

    Alan and the power of Starheart seems to be efficient against magical beings. Mordru with the power of Nabu AND Arion combined is put down by one sword attack. If Alan had not held back he could have probably killed him

    Dope 🤬 . Who's next on the DC list?
  • AmotekunAmotekun Members Posts: 7,820 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Mordru steals Starheart and uses it pretty efficiently. Since Alan has 70 years of experience using it, I think he can duplicate all Mordru can do, so I have included this here too...and Alan pretty much duplicates all those things in different parts of this feat list.

    Shows that Alan can create heat with his power.

    alan23heatfk7.jpg
    alan26firele0.jpg

    Alan creates an mace for Hawkman, which proves to be better then his old one. Hawkman puts the beatdown on Black Adam with it
    alan24hawkmanmaceqh0.jpg

    His power is different from the normal Green Lantern. That is why Parallax could not control him.
    alan25differentls7.jpg

    Alan can phase through objects too and be intangible...

    He can easily keep up with Flash [Jay Garrick]

    @parallelrhymes

    what Im finding out about Alan Scott the original GL this 🤬 was that dude.
    Shame DC just pulled a whole 🤬 persona thing and turned him into a
    pillow biter. Nuffin about that dude said 🤬 .

    Vandal Savage has prepared an trap for Alan. Even with only about 2% power left, Alan blasts through it.

    Alan VS Starheart, the source of his power, composed of all wild magic of the universe. The fact that he can hurt Starheart is alone incredibly impressive.

    Another teleport feat.

    Starheart protects him even from the time-altering powers of Extant.
    alan51protectfromextantsf0.jpg

    Alan helps nullify lunar gravity. Even if he does only something like 1/15 of the power, considering the mass of moon, it is pretty impressive.

    Creates gravedigger constructs to fight some zombies:

    Alan's lantern is destroyed (by Grundy), leaving him completely powerless

    Despite being powerless, Alan not only wills a new lantern into existence, but he also draws back all of the energy his old lantern housed (even though said energy had already found new 'vessels' to inhabit):
