A cosmic energy force that animates all of plant life in the universe, the Green is expereinced by elementals as an ethereal realm inhabited by the collective minds of the Parliament of Trees.
The Green is one of the elemental forces in the universe innherent and connected to all forms of plant life.
The Green was formed during the dawn of humanity when the Lords of Order set forth and performed a ritual that convened the forces that infused the natural world with power. Called the "Parliment of Life", this ritual spawned the natural forces of the world, in which included not only the Green but also others such as The Red, The Grey, The Divided, and The Rot.
In the parallel universe of Earth 2, The Green chooses Alan Scott as its protector in preparation for a coming threat, and in the wake of a devastating attack by Darkseid. It uses his engagement ring as a conduit for its power, naming him a Green Lantern.
