Name: Martin Cole
Allias: Green Lantern
For his costumed appearance see previous post til I edit it in here.
-Green Lantern Ring: This ring allows Martin to generate solid objects made from a green light while he maintains them which is dependent on his will power to create them and his imagination to shape them. It can also act as a translator, allow him to survive in space and other hostile environments as well as fly (at faster than light speeds outside of a planet's gravity well) and generate force fields.
-Armour: Martin upon noting the ring's vulnerabilities created a suit to help protect him during fights with some villains. The suit itself is a theoretical design but the technology to create many of the parts correctly is currently not in place but aside from the basic shell and frame Martin fills in the blanks of the suit with the power ring. The suit is there for protection against certain attacks and allows him to stay nimble by supporting it's own weight.
-Yellow: Yellow objects and entities are hard for the ring to effect which came as a startling realization of how much of a draw back this was when he got hit by a large yellow golem punched straight through the force field he had created and broke three ribs. This event led to the creation of his armoured suit.
-Wood: Objects made of would are better at destroying his constructs than other seemingly superior materials, he is in more danger from a man with a wooden stick than one with a katana if he is aware of the attack.
-Green Lantern Ring: Martin's ring must be worn and periodically recharged to allow him to benefit from it's abilities. Without it he is a normal man albeit more knowledgeable about unusual things even his suit will not work without the ring and although it offers some protection will be ungainly and cumbersome.
Martin Cole was born into a middle class family, his intuitive grasp of physics and the physical forces that shape the world led him to be granted a scholarship and he went on to study in University and become an Engineer. Martin enjoyed college immensely and strove to excel which allowed him to catch the eye of some representatives from NASA.
Although it was clear he'd never be an astronaut the chance to help create space ships and take mankind into the stars was appealing to Martin. Jumping at the opportunity he worked hard, it was there he met Wendy Rayner and fell in love. After a whirlwind romance with the more outgoing and adventurous red headed woman they got engaged. Tragedy struck when an accident during testing resulted in Wendy being killed in an explosion.
Martin channeled his anger into figuring out what had gone wrong to discover it was sabotage using unknown technology. Eventually this led him to confront the saboteur only to find out it was an alien who was fighting with another apparently glowing green entity. During the fight this green lantern was mortally wounded but stopped the alien who apparently had designs to set back humanities space exploration. He was shocked to discover the glowing man was another human and a man he knew, an astronaut. Knowing that he was about to die shortly he passed the torch and sponsored Martin's entry into the Green Lantern Corp as his replacement. It's been over two years since that day and now Martin is the designated Green Lantern for this sector which does bring him outside into the galaxy where he is well known to some worlds and unknown to others but still he does his best to safeguard the Earth now more than ever of the dangers that lurk in the shadows between stars as well as the ones that lurk in alley ways, both need his attention and he will do his best to do his duty.
