Kyle Rayner is the fifth Green Lantern of Earth, a powerful member of the Green Lantern Corps, serving as an honor guard, and is considered the greatest lantern. Originally given his power ring by Ganthet of the Guardians of the Universe after his predecessor Hal Jordan destroyed the Corps during Emerald Twilight, he was the last surviving torchbearer for many years until their return. The sentient willpower entity Ion possessed him and gave him incredible powers for a period of his career, but he was later briefly possessed by the fear entity Parallax as well. In his secret identity he is an artist, and uses his powers as the ultimate form of expression, constantly demonstrating his creativity and imagination during battle. He has also been a member of the Justice League, the New Titans, the Sinestro Corps and the Challengers from Beyond. Kyle Rayner was created by Ron Marz and Darryl Banks, first appearing in Green Lantern (Volume 3) #48. (1994)
