The Guardians of the Universe are the immortal founders and leaders of the interstellar peacekeeping force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Every Green Lantern is given a power ring that allows them to channel energy into constructs by harnessing their own willpower. The Guardians were born on the planet Maltus, but they chose Oa as the home of their Central Power Battery. Their goal is to bring order to the universe by any means necessary. The Green Lanterns were not their only attempt at a peacekeeping force, and their failed experiments have included the Manhunters and the Third Army. The Guardians of the Universe were created by John Broome and Gil Kane after an initial concept by Julius Schwartz, first appearing in Green Lantern (Volume 2) #1. (1960)
