The Green Lantern Corps, which are a part of the DC Universe for many years possess a power that is given to them by the Green Lantern Rings they wield. The power is exceptional, some might say it is the most powerful weapon in the whole galaxy. Anything can be done only by wearing the most powerful ring in the galaxy.
This ring gives extraordinary abilities like, breathing in space, creating solid objects, just to name a few things from many that are possible with this ring. Kyle Rayner has also created fully functioning legs some time before, completely with willpower. The most important thing that is needed to be eligible for this mighty weapon is unruly willpower. One must believe, so one can create. If uncertainty, fear, or anxiety is present the Green Lantern Ring loses its power. Warriors who have crippling fears or anxiety make a poor choice for such a weapon. Even though that’s true this changed when Jessica Cruz received a Power Ring.
Jessica Cruz had been a witness to the brutal murder of her close companions. She managed to escape, but the event had left deep scars on her psyche. She felt like a coward for not giving them the helping hand and escaping by herself. Full of anxiety, fears, and self-doubt, Jessica locked herself in the house for three years. In this time, The Ring of Volthoom had left its subject and came to Jessica and forced itself on her.
She went through a long journey, Batman helped Jessica conquer her fears. Hal Jordan – who might be played by Tom Cruise in the upcoming 2020 movie – was there to teach her the path to controlling the ring’s power, along with Guy Gardner, a failed football superstar, who joined the corps after injuries stopped him from being one of NFL future wagers. Difficulties arise when it came to making constructs, it was obvious that her willpower wasn’t strong enough. In Green Lanterns: Rage Plant, she overcame her anxieties and fears and helped save the world.
She had such an exhausting and crippling fear, that when she left her house or be anywhere else it would make her skin crawl. However, she remained a warrior. Defeating frightening beasts whose main source of power was the rage. There was a lot of self-doubts and a lot of moments when she wanted to quit, there were moments when there was no hope, however, she came up on top.
Jessica Cruz as a hero and a warrior defeated the inner voices of doubt and low self-esteem and she came out mighty. Her inner thought process of self-doubt and when she started to freeze, but then trying and succeeding to motivate herself to push through took a lot of guts and willpower. The murder of her close companions had really left a deep searing mark on her, but Jessica even in times of self-doubt and fear managed to take a huge leap of step which shows courage and willpower.
She found a way to wield the most powerful weapon in the galaxy, which feeds of willpower and managed to make it reach its potential. With all the excess amount of anxieties and fears, not to mention issues with self-worth, she had been glorious being able to dig deep to overcome something she couldn’t for years.
Even though her willpower was so low before that she couldn’t even create a boxing glove with her ring, she succeeded in creating a construct that abolished the Red Lantern’s tower. Every great hero has a huge story that shows a path full of obstacles. One of the most amazing parts of this story was that Jessica acknowledged her fears and she pushed through gloriously. This story resembles that no matter how hard it might be, a hero will arise in oneself.
