Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Synopsis: On Oa, the headquarters planet of the intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps, the Guardians of the Universe see alarming evidence that the feared villain, Krona, is coming to destroy the planet. While the Guardians move to evacuate, Green Lantern Hal Jordan helps the unsure new recruit, Arisia, by telling her several stories of fellow Lanterns and the challenges they faced. Through him, we see the adventures of Avra the first Lantern, Princess Laira, Kilowog, the unsociable Mogo and Jordan's immediate predecessor, Abin Sur. When Krona arrives, those stories prove more valuable than anyone expects as Arisia draws a special inspiration from them.

Ardakian Trawl,

do you realize you got patrol?

Oh, and I thought I was coming

500 million light-years... give you a sponge bath, Kilowog.

Knock it off, you poozer.

How much longer?

I'm in your star system,

so quit flaring your nostrils.

My God.





Ardakian, you there?

Ardakian? What happened?



Where is it?




Needless to say,

we're all shocked and saddened... the news of Ardakian Trawl.

She was a bold and gallant

Green Lantern...

...whose achievements

will long be remembered.

But for now, we must set aside

our mourning for the threat at hand.


Glad you could make it.


We know from her ring that Ardakian's

murderers were Shadow Demons.

Soulless creatures

from the Antimatter Universe.

We haven't seen them

since the great crisis.

They came from a rift in our sun, a rift

that connected directly to their universe.

We take it this was no mere anomaly.

No. We were able to make

a detailed analysis through the ring.

There's no mistake.

The demons were sent by Krona.



Most of you know Krona's story... he defied authority...

...and created the Antimatter Universe

billions of years ago.

He nearly annihilated all of creation.

As punishment he was turned

into disembodied energy...

...and cast throughout the cosmos.

We thought him gone...

...but it seems he has reconstituted himself

in the Antimatter realm...

...bringing the Shadow Demons

under his control.

We sense this is just the beginning...

...that Krona means to use our sun,

the very center of the universe... a portal to attack us.

We have sent a squadron of Lanterns

to the sun to begin monitoring.

They'll be setting up observation platforms

to conserve energy.

Meanwhile, all important documents

and artifacts will be moved from Oa... the Broome-Kane star cluster

for safekeeping.

We'll need everyone to keep a close watch

on the sun while we evacuate.




We have already removed the Book of Oa,

our most sacred text.

Next will be the library.


You gotta be kidding.

Excuse me, Ganthet, but these precautions

do seem rather extraordinary.

Krona was a tyrant

with insatiable aggression, Sinestro.

He vowed to destroy Oa,

and we take that threat seriously.

We suggest you charge your rings


...for the Central Battery

will be removed as well.

Let those who worship evil's might

Beware my power, Green Lantern's light


In brightest day, in blackest night

No evil shall escape my sight


Let those who worship...

Sorry, kid.

Usually I like to mentor recruits...

...for more than a couple of hours

before they face Armageddon.

It is kind of overwhelming.


- Are you all right?

- Yeah. Sure.

It's just that, well,

three days ago I was sitting in class...

...trying to figure out a physics problem

and then this.

Yeah, that's the way it is.

The thing is, why me? I'm just a student.

A nobody, really.

I'm sure Avra felt the same way.

- Who?

- The first Green Lantern.

It's one of the first stories you learn.

I guess we got a little sidetracked.

To quote scripture:

The first one given a ring

was not the first Lantern.

The first was Avra.


The Book of Oa, first chapter, first verse.

Long ago, before our stars had ignited...

... long ago, when life was new

and the universe was in its infancy...


... before order...
