Jong Li was a monk who lived in ancient China the year 660 AD. He lived with his fellow monks and Master in the Temple of the Dragon Lords. The last of those to commune with and give energy to sustain the Dragon Lords they remained sheltered in the temple. One night an escaped concubine of the Emperor arrives in the temple begging for protection. The Imperial Guard arrive and during the fight Jong Li is knocked unconscious. He awakens to barely escape the burning Temple and flee into the woods. During his first night of rest after, an alien being and representative of the Guardians of the Universe arrives at Earth and scans for suitable candidates for a Power Ring. After scanning through a village the beam lands on Jong Li alone in the woods. The alien comes out of the ship in a beam of emerald light and presents both a Ring and Lantern to him, instructing him telepathically to use it to "oppose evil, to ease suffering, and protect the innocent." With that charge he is also warned of the temptation of such power. It is at this point he becomes Earth’s first Green Lantern and the first human Lantern of Sector 2814.

Powers and Abilities

  • The Ring occasionally will manifest the image of his Master or of Jade Moon on its own so that he may truly know what is going on in his mind and face himself similar to the "Angel and Devil" on your shoulder routine.
