The Forbidden Forest of Weeds is a dense jungle of malicious plants on the planet Okaara in the Vega system. Chronologically, the Forest was first seen during the flashback given by Larfleeze, as he recounted a part of his history to Hal Jordan in return for the Blue power Ring that Jordan had upon him at the time. The Forest was one of the obstacles posed to the four remaining thieves in Larfleeze's guild (the fifth having being killed on Maltus) when they followed the map they stole from the Guardians of the Universe. The Forest claimed yet another one of their guild, leaving three to claim the Orange Light at the forest's center. The Forest was later penetrated by the Guardians, who with a force of Manhunter androids, pursued the thieves into the temple that housed the Orange Light. It is presumed that after the Guardians made their pact with Larfleeze, now Agent Orange, the forest regrew.
The Forest was next seen when the Controllers, seeking a power source with which they would found their own Lantern Corps. in preparation for the coming War of Light, traveled to Okaara. Confident as they brushed away the locals, they penetrated the forest with similar ease. They would later be slaughtered by Agent Orange's force of Lantern avatars. The Forest was last seen when Gretti, a force of Lanterns, and the majority of the Guardians of the Universe, traveled themselves to Okaara to apprehend Larfleeze. The Guardians blasted the forest aside to reach the temple at the center.
The Forest, whenever shown, displayed a grotesque knack for devouring anything around it. The barely discernible remains of other plants, animals, and the locals could easily be seen in the overgrowth, as scenes of the forest were displayed.
The Forest also seems to be able to grow back extremely fast, as it had already stretched itself over the path where the Controllers had blasted their way, or so it seemed, as the Guardians and the Green Lanterns seemed to take the same path towards the temple.
Points of Interest
- Local Villages (As the Controllers were shown slaughtering sword wielding locals moments before entering the forest, and that one or two locals could be seen covered in the forest's growth, it can be deduced that at least one village, for reasons unknown, choose to settle on the forest's edge)
- Central Temple (Home of Larfleeze and his Orange Lantern Corps., and the chamber in which the orange Light is kept)
