Yalan Gur was the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 in the 10th Century.

As he was one of the greatest Lanterns, the Guardians of the Universe chose to remove the weakness to yellow from his power ring. Without this limitation, however, he was corrupted by his power, and on Earth enslaved the people of China. The Guardians then added a new weakness to the ring: wood. Now, the clubs of the local villagers could hurt him. Mortally wounded, he fled Earth and merged with his power battery in the upper atmosphere. The battery then collided with a fragment of the Starheart, which was also merged with it. The end result was a single lantern ring, with a unique weakness and a magic that blocked most of its original functions. This Green Flame eventually found its way to Alan Scott, who became the Green Lantern.




  • Yalan Gur is introduced as part of an effort to reconcile the Golden Age Green Lantern's origin with the later introduction of the Green Lantern Corps.
