Thomas Kalmaku was a young Inuit engineer at Ferris Aircraft and the employer of test pilot Hal Jordan.

For a while, he was nicknamed "Pieface" (see below), however this has not been used for some time. He had a girlfriend named Tegra. They later married and had a son and a daughter but later separated from his wife.

Kalmaku was the first person to know about Hal Jordan's secret, and kept a journal of Green Lantern's adventures. He often assisted the hero, or required rescuing as well as serving as his confidante. Hal had considered him as a replacement Green Lantern for Sector 2814, and the Guardians of the Universe even offered him a Green Lantern Ring (which he declined, famously saying "naw").[1]

Kalmaku was revealed to be one of the "Chosen" who formed the New Guardians. He had the superpower to bring out the best in people. However, he decided to leave the New Guardians to be with his family. He loses his powers when he leaves the team.[2]

After Hal's (several) deaths, he went on a final mission on Hal's behalf, eventually reconstructing the planet Oa.[3]

Kalmaku later became an equal partner with Carol Ferris' in Ferris Aircraft. Despite this, he still does mechanical work for the planes, telling Hal Jordan that a wrench is his power ring.[1]


Former Powers: Thomas Kalmaku was enhanced by the Guardians and given the power to "bring out the best in people." After he left the New Guardians he showed no further signs of any powers.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.

He owns a "complete" stamp collection, with stamps from every country in the world, including the tiny balkan nation of Modora.[4]
