Well Till there is a Geoff-Con, Alan's powers are Half Mystical Half Guardian. His Lantern and Ring are made from a fragment of the StarHeart that combined with a GLC Power Battery and Ring that belonged to GL 2814 Yalan Gur, who went rogue so the guardians changed his rings weakness from yellow to wood and some Chinese guys beat him near to death. (GL Vol 3 #19)

If I were writting GL I would make it happen. I would come up with a good reason why he also had a Green Lantern corps ring. I would let him join in major Green Lantern event fights and have a costume that resembled a mix between his and a corps uniform. Then when crissis is over he goes back to Earth and resumes his original Green Lantern Identity.

How cool would a mini be with Alan on Oa being trained for major space battles with the corps? Have each Major lantern teaching a diffrent lesson. And also exploring what a influnce Alan has made on the the Green Lanterns they have become.

I kinda think Alan's origin needs a retcon or two. It is such a convoluted mess that has been rewritten (badly) over and over again and really makes little sense. First it's a meteor, then it's a magical meteor, then it's the starheart, then it's Yalan Gur's ring reprogrammed by the Guardians, then it's chaos magic, now it's just the Starheart again.

Obviously some kind of connection to the Guardians has to be made, because a green ring and lantern shaped battery that just so happens to work exactly like the Green Lanterns by mere coincidence if a little too far fetched. Maybe it could be a Qwardian experiment meant to copy a GL ring, or some magically created item for the same purpose. An Empire of Tears item meant to counteract the Guardians made of chaos magic, something.

With Alan's involvement in Blackest Night, I'm certain it will once again be retonned in order to have something to do with the emotional spectrum.

In fairness, though, the Starheart has always been wild magic contined by the Guardians. "Chaos magic" is just another way of saying that. Also, Alan's story was fitted into the meteor in GLCQ (the meteor hit Yalang) and Yalang hasn't been mentioned since.

Between 95 and 100 right now. The year of Alan Scott's birth might have been given in a retcon somewhere, but it'd have to be so obscure that it won't get mentioned again. Basically, Alan encountered the lamp he fashioned into a ring and lantern in 1940. He was also reported to be young then, but old enough to be an engineer, so him being 25 at the time is pretty close. So he was probably born around 1915.

I would definitely leave Alan Scott as is. He is a unique and very compelling character... no need to change that to make him "one of the guys".

and.... what is the explanation currently used for why Jay Garrick and Alan Scott NOT being 100 right now?

Is it the Ragnarok/Abraxis scenario from the Armageddon: Inferno story?

And if so... how come people remember Superman Prime but the JSA don't?

Like... how come SOME of the pre-crisis shit changed... but that part didn't?

I don't think his origin is going to be changed too much, but his ring might have some special part in the spectrum, and we're going to find out what will happen when he goes near a Blue Lantern as well... that should be interesting.

The only problem i have with Alan Scott is that he doesnt have his own solo series. But thats just me being picky. im not a big fan of team books and i dont want to have to read JSA to read Scott. I would also like to see him interact more in Gotham City, seeing as that's his home town. again, thats just me.

I still say make him an officer and give him a costume, keep the ring, it's technically a GL one anyway.

I thnk they would only spoil alans character if they gave him a ring.
On his own, he is a powerful unique character who has an important role already.

Also if somethng happens to the glc, its alwys cool to hav alan to turn to. eg. when he gave kyle a crash course in being a gl when kyle 1st got his ring.

The Guardians consider Alan an ally (as well they should) and use him as an elder statesman when he is needed in that role (look at the pep talk he gave to Kyle in "Emerald Dawn" after Alex died aned when Kyle was over-whelmed by what had happened to him) but there's absolutely NO WAY that Alan should be given a ring by the Guardians.

A large part of his appeal as a character is that he is unique and I like the more magical qualities of the starheart.

give Alan a GL corps ring and he becomes just one of 7000 and his uniqueness and appeal is sacrificed, IMHO.

Cheers.

James.

Didn't Ganthet and Sayd just "make" Blue Rings out of thin air? For all we know, that's what the Guardians did back in the day. Atrocitus formed his out of Blood and Magic, Agent Orange just seemed to get one after he got the Battery, and the Zamarons turned Star Sapphires into Rings.

Alans Ring is unique, so is his whole character, which is why I think we deserve a re-telling of his "official" origins. It could be very interesting.

Think of the Emerald Eye of Ekron, which was a "prototype weapon" created by the Guardians.

I guess they were not affected because they were in the Ragnarok pocket dimension.

I would definitely keep Alan separate from the Corps. To a certain extent. Some connection must be made between him and the glc. I think blackest night is perfect for that. With the magical aspect of his ring, maybe this is one of the secrets the guardians have been hiding for so long as some of these characters have been talking about. Just maybe, that magical aspect might be the thing to bring back the fallen in blackest night. I don't think he should change, but I wouldn't mind a connection.
