|EMERALD GENESIS: INTRODUCTION
For three billion years their legend grew.
A warrior corps thirty-six hundred strong. They would wield the most powerful weapon ever devised, a weapon not of destruction, but of creation.
The power ring, focused by the sheer force of will of their wearers. The power battery, the link to the Central Power Battery on Oa. Ultimate knowledge harnessed to ultimate power in the service of universal order.
The Green Lantern Corps.
Spread throughout the universe, these emerald warriors strove to bring Oa's light to the darkest reaches of the cosmos. Oa, home of their creators.
The Guardians of the Universe.
A race almost as old as the universe itself. Their legend stretched back ten billion years. The Oans contained the forces of chaos, to bring order to the universe. Their ancient past lies in mystery, perhaps hidden even to themselves.
Together, the Green Lantern Corps and their masters, the Guardians of the Universe, battled against forces that would tear apart the very fabric of reality.
From the first Green Lantern, Rori Dag of Rojira, many more legends would grow in the light of the Emerald Dawn.
...Zharan Pel, Cimfet Tau, Abin Sur of Ungara, Tomar-Re of Xudar, Kilowog of Bolovax Vik, Hal Jordan of Earth, Katma Tui-Stewart of Korugar, John Stewart of Earth...
Despite defeats in their history, the Green Lantern Corps would always return to achieve victory...
...until an Emerald Twilight...
Destroyed by one of their own in an attempt to remake reality, the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps are now gone.
Their final legacy handed to one man on Earth, Kyle Rayner.
Has the Green Lantern Corps fallen, never to rise again?
There is a saying, "Once a Green Lantern, Always a Green Lantern"
The future is still unknown... and only time will tell.
For now, we can only look back, to an Emerald Genesis...
