And now 80sTees.com presents: A brief history lesson of the DC Universe. The Green Lantern is the alter ego of Alan Scott, a railroad engineer possessing a magic ring that gains its power by being touched to a magic talking lantern every 24 hours. Unfortunately for Mr. Scott, the ring was unable to be used on wood, and unfortunately for the rest of the world this is honestly the original story of the Green Lantern. Luckily, DC rebooted the franchise in the late '50s, creating the Green Lantern we know and love today: Hal Jordan, an Earthbound representative of the intergalactic police force, The Green Lantern Corps. Now you can dress as this mainstay of the original Justice League lineup with a Green Lantern t-shirt from 80sTees.com. By wearing this classic emblem, you'll strike fear into the hearts of rival Sinestro Corps members, as well as any other super villains you might be pitted against. You can even show your allegiance to one of the other Lantern organizations with tees featuring the logos of the maverick, femme fatales of the Star Sapphire Corps or the terrifying Red Lantern Corps. In brightest day, through blackest night, our Green Lantern T-shirts shall spread their light!
Jack Black almost became a green lantern. The plan was to produce a comedic version of the superhero. The plot consisted of a lazy goof who was unqualified to be a superhero, with Black in the role. So...it could have been worse than the 2011 movie.
