Eddore src

Eddore was the Green Lantern of Sector 1419, and came from the planet Tront.

Origin

He was a gaseous creature who could assume a variety of shapes. Due to his amorphous nature, Eddore did not wear a standard Green Lantern Ring, but instead possessed a power globe that resided within his body. The power globe performed the same functions as a regular power ring, and also had the vulnerability against yellow.

Green Lantern Corps

On his home world of Tront, Eddore fought against a mad Trontian who attempted to conquer the planet by merging all of the planet's populace into a single composite entity. Eddore later attempted a similar feat after being corrupted by a yellow-proof ring and confronted Hal Jordan[1], but this was part of an act the Guardians carried out to test Jordan's psych.[2]

Eddore was killed during the Crisis on Infinite Earths[3]. However, his service in corps didn't go unnoticed, and he earned a place in the Crypts of the Green Lantern Corps.[4]

Eddore was among the many deceased Green Lanterns who were resurrected as Black Lanterns during the Blackest Night.

"From Lantern comes the gift we give,
to shed light's grace on all that live"[5]

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Created by Mike W. Barr, Eddore (along with Arisia) was named after one of the planets in E.E. Smith's Lensmen series.
  • Eddore spoke in a pidgin dialect similar to that of the Star Wars character Yoda.
