Never forgets, Warth

Posted in Blue Lantern Corps,Profiles by mrread7 on March 7, 2009

This weekend, with the rain pouring. I decided to do a profile look at our favorite elephant Blue Lantern, Warth. From Sector 2 and chosen by Saint Walker. Warth has quickly become a very popular Blue Lantern and has already selected the Blue Lantern for Sector 3. Warth is from Sector 0002. He is the second person to be initiated into the Blue Lantern Corps. Each Blue Lantern is chosen by the Blue Lantern of the previous sector and brought to the Guardians of the Blue Lantern Corps, Ganthet and Sayd to be evaluated so they can truly judge whether they are worthy to become a member of their Corps or not. He was brought to the Odym, home planet of the Blue Lantern Corps, by its first member, Saint Bro’Dee Walker of Sector 0001. Warth spent several days with the Guardians while they evaluated and judged him for themselves. They explained to him what it truly means to be a Blue Lantern and join their cause.

In order to become a Blue Lantern one must be willing to give of themselves completely to the universe. Unlike other corps their blue ring does not need to be charged and doesn’t run out of power. It is fueled directly by the hope of the people they seek out to help and save. Warth was convinced that their actions were worth the sacrifice. He chose to join the Blue Lanterns and was sent with Saint Walker and Hal Jordan to rescue Sinestro. As they passed a planet on the way, it’s sun prepared to go Supernova. Jordan attempted to call for backup but was unable to because of the interference of Warth and Saint’s rings. It proved unnecessary, when Warth and Saint joined together to use their powers on the sun, healing it and reversing it’s aging until it was once more a young vital blue star. Warth listened as Saint explained to Jordan, Ganthet’s ultimate purpose for him, to lead the Blue Lantern Corps. They then continued on their journey to rescue Sinestro.

Hal went ahead of Warth and Saint Walker and arrived on Ysmault before them. Hal saw Sinestro and was ambushed by the Red Lanterns and Hal’s pwer levels severely dropped. Hal was then help captive along with Sinestro. Hal saw his friend and former member of the Green Lantern Corps there corrupted as a Red Lantern. The Sinestro Corps then arrived to save Sinestro from the Red Lanterns and they fought with the Red Lanterns. As they fought, Warth and Saint Walker then arrived and charged up Hal’s ring again. Hal was attacked by Laira but was saved as Sinestro killed Laira. Hal finally unleashed all his anger and hate towards Sinestro and before he could kill him, Hal was chosen and became a Red Lantern. Hal fought alongside the Red Lanterns. As they Blue Lanterns rely on Green Lanterns to remain powerful, Saint Walker and Warth were drained of all of their energy as Hal was no longer a Green Lantern. Saint Walker wasn’t useless without his ring as he was still able to put a Blue ring on Hal and Hal was then turned to a Blue Lantern and a Green Lantern. Warth watched on and was shocked to see what had happened to Hal Jordan. Hal then defeated the Red Lanterns there on the planet of Ysmault.
