Best Answer

The original (Golden Age) Green Lantern was Alan Scott. Unlike those who followed him, his weakness was not to the color yellow, but to objects made of wood.

The first Silver Age Green Lantern (and still the most famous) was Hal Jordan, a fighter pilot who was bestowed the ring by an alien GL named Abin Sur.

The Green Lantern Corps consists of thousands (officially 3,600; but I suspect there are more) of members. Some of the human GLs over the years have been:

  • John Stewart, an African-American ex-marine who is the GL of the Justice League Unlimited animated series,
  • Guy Gardner, a hotheaded fighter with more bravery than brains,
  • Kyle Raynor, an artist who was also the first not to be affected by yellowness.
  • Jade, the daughter of Alan Scott and Kyle Raynor's ex-girlfriend.

Notable alien members of the Corps include:

  • Abin Sur, the first GL to visit Earth, as mentioned above,
  • Katma Tui, Jon Stewart's red-skinned lover,
  • Arisia Rrab, Hal Jordan's younger romantic interest,
  • Kilowog, a brutal yet surprisingly clever alien,
  • Tomar-Re, a birdlike Lantern who still regrets that he couldn't save the planet Krypton.
