In Brightest Day...
First, in honor of the movie coming out, I have decided to go with some Green Lantern. Now, even though the movie features Hal Jordan, I've always had a soft spot for Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern from the 1940s. I loved everything about Alan Scott, his personality, his costume, his origin, all of it was more down to Earth than the "space police" origin Hal, Kyle, Guy and John got.
The GL story I picked out is just a portion of the comic. It tells the origin of the wood and yellow impurities the Lantern rings have.
