Speaking of Lanterns, I was looking back at an answer you gave to @DeSade-acolyte (Aug 24th), about what a Green Lantern’s Power Ring can do. As I’ve said before, trying to keep up with your output of information, would take an Oracle level of abilities I’m afraid I simply don’t possess. In any case, I see an answer to a query I posed to you about Kyle Rayner and Major Force, not so long ago. So, consider that one answered. Which of course, brings up a whole 'nother question.
By the logic of your argument (if i understood you correctly), an artist like Kyle (one more gifted with a Jack Kirby like imagination then your basic intergalactic GL peace officer), could conceivably become for a 24 hour period (Earth time), the most powerful being in the known universe? With the power to take on (or out) a Dr. Manhattan, an Anti-Monitor, or anything else he (or she) believed opposed them? And all because they “think” they have the power to do so?
If true, I’m going to assume that the Guardians knew all about this “loaded gun” they were entrusting to these deputies they were empowering to serve them. That some kind of fail-safe is built into the ring that keeps it’s power levels in check? Or am I just way off base? And running around in right field, looking for a black baseball headed my way, on a moonless night?
As usual, stay safe, be well.
