Lantern Ermey was a drill instructor for the Green Lantern Corps who trained a number of recruits that would go on to become some of the Corps' best fighters. One of his top recruits was Kilowog, who he inspired to become one of the next great instructors for rookie Lanterns. Ermey was killed in action.[1] Later, he shows up later during Blackest Night as a zombified member of the Black Lantern Corps. Kilowog is forced to fight his mentor.[2]




Oath unknown.

  • Lantern Ermey is a clear reference to actor R. Lee Ermey, famous for playing tough drill sergeants.
