Green Lantern Oath

The Green Lantern is one of the most highly respected and celebrated superheroes of our time and is also one of the most widely known all across the world. If you are a fan of this DC comic book superhero, then you know the strong importance of the oath to this character. The oath is something that the Green Lantern says every time that he charges up his power ring, and is usually different for each and every Green Lantern character in the comic book universe. One of the most popular oaths is as follows:

“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!

This is the one that the majority of us GL fans are familiar with. There are also a few others that are extremely well known, but this is the one that most diehard fans can recite by heart. This oath was revised from the original one that appeared in the earlier comic books and continues to live on as one of the most famous quotes in all of DC Comics!


Each member of the Green Lantern Corps has his own unique oath, yet the purpose is the same – to give him the strength and will that he needs to serve the world with justice and to save it from a multitude of different evils time and time again. The oath is something that each Green Lantern says to himself and is a sort of a daily affirmation that lets him know that he is strong and courageous enough to go out and fight the good fight! The oath is the inner fire that brings forth the power to let justice prevail, not just over Earth but across countless galaxies throughout the universe. The legend of the Green Lantern is widely known all across the world and will always be one of the most influential superheroes of all time.

    Ryan Reynolds is a romantic sap toolshed. WTF is he doing as Hal Jordan – I was so stoked when I heard this movie was coming out. I’ll probably go see it anyway but really they couldn’t have come up with anyone better than Ryan Freaking Reynolds??

    Reynolds better not screw up this movie. I have a weird feeling about this.

  8. Yannick R says:

    Yeah I’m not overly optimistic about the movie — something tells me it’s going to be fine for the regular family people but not for the diehard Green Lantern fan.
