Green Lantern Deluxe Costume - RU889250
Did you know that “Green Lantern” technically doesn’t just refer to one superhero character, but is actually the name of a number of superheroes? And did you also know that Hal Jordan was not the original leader of Green Lantern? That was Alan Scott, who was created in 1940, right when superheroes were becoming super (geddit?) popular! Alan Scott usually battled your everyday common criminal in New York City, aided by the magic of his ring, which granted him a variety of extraordinary powers. Tough luck for Alan, though, because the publication of his character ceased in 1949, when comic books lost some of their mass appeal (hint: television started being a thing).But don’t cry for Alan-tina…in 1959, as a way to wrangle the surging fascination with science fiction, the Green Lantern character was reinvented as Hal Jordan, an officer for an interstellar law enforcement agency known as the Green Lantern Corps! Additional members of this agency, all of whom call themselves Green Lanterns, were introduced steadily over time. Together, they’ve taken on the evil Sinestro time and time again and also joined other superhero buddies in stopping the Legion of Doom from taking over the world.Which is all to say: There’s a spot open in the Green Lantern Corps, and if you’re ready to fill it, then this Green Lantern Deluxe Costume is ready for action! Just slip on this black and green jumpsuit featuring a muscle chest and Green Lantern symbol. don the included eye mask, and you'll be ready to shine the light of good over all evil!
