|GREEN LANTERN CORPS (30TH CENTURY, EARTH-247)|
|Created by Ron Marz and Darryl Banks|
In the late 30th Century, in the universe of Earth-247, Tomar-Ro, a Xudarian criminal with expertise in advanced technology and ancient history constructed a siphon to tap the ambient energy left in the area of space once occupied by the planet Oa. The siphon was housed in a cloaked space station dubbed Oa Two.
Tomar-Ro created rings to mimic the abilities of the original Oan power rings once wielded by the Green Lantern Corps. The rings could transmit the siphoned emerald energy but only had a narrow range of capabilities. Using the legend of the original Corps, Tomar-Ro formed his own Green Lantern Corps, supplying them with their rings. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #98 - 99
Tomar-Ro was a Xudarian of unusual physical size for his species. His ring created pirahana-like fish to attack an opponent.
Dalana Barr, a suspected con artist, wielded a ring capable of creating energy shields.
Flaay P'kari had been convicted of murder, kidnapping and extortion, marking him as once of the most violent of Tomar-Ro's gang. He possessed a ring which created large alien beasts.
Nytoro Borin was a spoiled rich girl growing up on Lortia whose criminal record since she was a juvenile had been growing increasingly more serious. Her ring enabled her to create explosive projectile charges.
Renno, an expert star pilot and hired muscle was the largest of the group, encased in an armored form, though it has not been established if Renno is composed of any organic material. His ring was used to create mechanical objects such as jump ships and holding cells.
Din Collus was a career mercenary before joining the Corps. Parts of his body had been replaced with various cybernetic implants due to injuries sustained in his many battles. His ring created a high-powered energy rifle.
A Sklarian Raider whose real name remains a mystery had a history as a paid assassin. Her ring created melee weaponry such as knives and clubs.
Finally, Sparak came from the doomed colony world Reetus and had an utter disregard for any form of life. His ring created objects such as webbing or cables to ensnare a victim. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #98
Though the rings used the same emerald energy of the original Corps' rings, it is not yet known if these rings needed to be recharged every twenty-four hours or had a vulnerability to yellow. As the original Corps' rings, Tomar-Ro's rings granted the wearer the ability of flight and could protect the wearer from the hazards of space travel. Presumably the rings draw on a limited template of objects with specific functions in order to mimic the original Corps rings. While will power may have been needed to operate them it is doubtful imagination would have played any part in improving their limited functions. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #98- #99
At first, the new Green Lantern Corps performed heroic deeds to gain the trust of the worlds of the United Planets. Before too long they had revealed their true purpose, high profile crime. Neither the Science Police nor the Legion of Super-Heroes were able to stop them. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #98
The Corps stole many of history's great treasures, including objects believed to be the helmet of Doctor Fate and the hook appendage worn by Aquaman in the 20th Century.
In New London's Piccadilly Circus, a man wearing the colors of the Green Lantern Corps appeared out of nowhere. His name was Kyle Rayner, the last of the Green Lanterns. He had been transported though time as well as dimension, crossing to the Earth-247 universe, after a battle with Grayven in the late 20th Century. Rayner was immediately attacked by the citizens of New London yet offered little resistance when taken into custody by the Science Police. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #97 - #98
In Paris, the Corps had a confrontation with a handful of Legionnaires. Ironically, the sculpture they had stolen, "Sorrow," had been created by Rayner later in his life and was considered one of history's great masterpieces. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #98 - #99
The Legion interviewed the 20th Century Green Lantern and realized he was not part of Tomar-Ro's Corps. His experience would prove valuable to the Legion in their pursuit of the Corps.
When Oa Two was uncovered by the 20th Century Green Lantern and Xs, Invisible Kid, (Earth-247)Ultra Boy and Lightning Lass of the Legion of Super-Heroes the Green Lantern Corps went on the offensive, striking down the Legion and taking them as prisoners. Tomar-Ro himself defeated the true Green Lantern as he relished the chance to acquire an actual Oan power ring.
Tomar-Ro took the Green Lantern's power ring but could not make it work. He was even more frustrated when the ring vanished from his finger. Though his Corps searched Oa Two for the ring they could not find it.
The ring had been reclaimed by Ganthet, the last of the Guardians of the Universe, and given to Cary Wren, a young woman living on the streets of New London and ancestor of Kyle Rayner. The ring would work for her as she shared the same genetic profile as Rayner. Ganthet wished for Wren to reclaim the honor of the Green Lantern Corps from Tomar-Ro's band of criminals.
Tomar-Ro, frustrated by his interrogation of the powerless Kyle Rayner, decided to use him as an example to an approaching Legion cruiser. The Green Lantern Corps would hold the Legion members hostages until their demands were met, including full immunity for the crimes they had committed and a planet of their own to rule as kings. Tomar-Ro planned to throw Rayner out the airlock unless the Legion agreed to his terms. Unfortunately for the Xudarian, Rayner managed to escape even without the power ring.
Wren breached the force shield of Oa Two and quickly freed captive members of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Superspeedster Xs, granddaughter of the second Flash, left her teammates to search the station for the "Sorrow" sculpture. Wren followed her and met the Legionnaire at Oa Two's energy siphon.
Invisible Kid managed to pull the power coil for Oa Two's force shield, allowing other Legionnaires to attack the defenseless space station. Cosmic Boy, Shrinking Violet Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad and Phantom Girl came aboard to fight the Corps.
While the Legion fought the Corps, Cary Wren sought to deprive them of the energy powering their rings. Wren trained her power ring on the siphon, forcing it to overload. Wild energy bursts tore holes in the siphon, quickly overwhelming the novice Green Lantern. Kyle Rayner, realizing what she was doing, added his will power to hers. With concentration, they were able to absorb the energy into the power ring. The Legion could now easily defeat the Corps.
The members of the Green Lantern Corps were taken into custody and the objects they had stolen were returned to their rightful owners. The fate of Oa Two and the possibility that another might follow in Tomar-Ro's footsteps by recreating the Corps has yet to be explored. - Green Lantern Vol. 3 #99
This future version of the Green Lantern Corps has not been mirrored in other universes. It remains to be seen if the Ganthet that appeared to assist Kyle Rayner was from Rayner's universe, of that of Earth-247.
