Keli Quintela is the Teen Lantern, an eleven-year-old girl that hacked into the Green Lantern Power Battery from her mother's house in La Paz, Bolivia, and rigged her own way to pull the source energy into her gauntlet; then she reprogrammed it to do whatever she wants without the knowledge of the Green Lantern Corps.[1] She is a member of Young Justice, a team of young heroes dedicated to fighting evil.

Quintela was born in La Paz, Bolivia. While at a junkyard searching for something with a boy named Marcos, Keli witnesses a man kill an alien. She later returns to the junkyard and finds the alien, Iorl, dying. Before he dies, she takes a device from him that allows her to access the Green Lantern Power Battery. She modified and hacked it to act like a Green Lantern Ring and decided to move to Metropolis to become a superhero.[2]

Young Justice

When Dark Opal's men invaded Earth, Keli confronted them along with other heroes, who would form Young Justice. So, the heroes went to Gemworld and freed the citizens from Dark Opal. They later found Superboy, but the Council of Gems banished them to the multiverse. They encountered many Earths such as Earth-22 and Earth 3.[2]
