To be a Blue Lantern

Posted in Blue Lantern Corps by mrread7 on March 5, 2009

So, you think it’s easy being a Blue Lantern? Not at all. While a Green Lantern is chosen for their ability to over come great fear. A Sinestro Corps member is chosen for instilling great fear. A Red Lantern can only be selected if they have great rage in their heart and have been wrong by anything of Sinestro’s legacy. While a Star Sapphire is chosen for their capability of great love for another and must have that hole filled. For a Blue Lantern, they first must be able to impart hope onto themselves and others. A Blue Lantern are a rare breed that all have a special destiny to fulfil. They are chosen by other Blue Lanterns from neighboring sectors and then brought to Odym. There they do a walkabout with Ganthet and Sayd. Where they tell them about their true fate and what they will have to sacrifice to become instilled with the blue light of hope. This takes days but in this time, a Blue Lantern learns all about themselves and what they can do. It is on the final day that the decision is completely theirs. They will either chose to be a Blue Lantern or not. If they accept then hope will spread. If they decline then another must be chosen. It’s a long and tedious journey but it all pays off in the end.
