Well, I see that you are considering Alan Scott's ring as a Green Lantern ring. I disagree. Although Alan was the first Terran hero to call himself Green Lantern, his ring is not exactly a Green Lantern ring. Especially in the Golden Age, there were several differences in relation between Alan Scott's ring and the standard Green Lantern Corps Rings. Firstly, Alan's ring is mystical, not a super-scientific gadget. In the beginning, the ring was able to render its owner impervious to metals - and only metals. Any non-metal objects would harm the wielder, normally. The Starheart energies leave a mystic flame effect. While in Silver Age, was normal to Alan Scott to use his ring to travel into other planets, it was impossible in Golden Age. In Comic Cavalcade Vol 1 16, Alan admitted that would be impossible to come back from Schzoids planet only with his ring. Kowalewski (talk) 01:11, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

The ring is green, it's charged in a lantern, and its wielder is named Green Lantern, that makes it a Green Lantern Ring. It's not a Guardian-issued super-scientific ring, but it's not called a Guardian Science Ring, it's called a Green Lantern ring. And for 20 years of publishing history, it was the only Green Lantern Ring. So that's why it's called that. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 02:48, June 3, 2019 (UTC)
Alan Scott's ring should be indexed as Starheart Ring, Stoop. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 04:13, June 3, 2019 (UTC)
In the brackets, is "indexed" the thing to the left of the pipe or to the right? Should it not be "Green Lantern Ring", much like "New York City"? Rule of thumb is [sq.bracket](real name)|(in-universe name)[sq.bracket], yes? Characters IN the stories don't call it "Starheart". Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 08:25, June 3, 2019 (UTC)
I guess that would be fine. Alan Scott is aware of his ring's origin in Post-1978 stories, though. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 11:33, June 3, 2019 (UTC)
