In Dan Jurgen’s Tangent Universe, this Green Lantern is a necromancer. She uses the power of her Lantern to raise the dead “so they can perform one final mission.” She’s often at the whim of the Lantern which will drag her to the next body she needs to resurrect.

We don’t know who Green Lantern is. In fact, she doesn’t know who she is. She could be Lois Lane, Zatanna, or countless others who have died on Earth 9. Her memory is foggy. Perhaps she is all of them and is resurrected time after time.

She briefly pops into Earth Prime when Kyle Rayner was going by the name Ion. He steals the lantern from her as she goes back to the Tangent Universe and she ages rapidly. The lantern makes it to the JLA headquarters where John Stewart manages to power it and it goes back to Tangent. The Tangent heroes enlist Earth-1’s heroes to take down the evil Tangent Superman. It appears, when at the height of her powers, she also has the ability to bridge time and space as well as multiverses.

What the Multiversity Guide has to say about Earth 9:

Here, Superman is a human being of vast intellect and mental power, while the Atom takes his place as Earth’s foremost superhero.

Here, the light-powered flash is the first baby born in space. Here, the Green Lantern can resurrect the dead. Here, Joker is an anarchist prankster on the side of freedom, and Batman is a time lost armored spirit seeking justice throughout eternity.

Who Are The Multiverse Green Lanterns?

Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp’s The Green Lantern issue 10 cracked open the Multiverse and introduced as to the “Guardians of the Multiverse.” This team is a collection of Green Lanterns from different Earths (perhaps more correctly Universes because they aren’t all from the Earth in their Universe). Thanks to the solicitation for issue 10 we know Morrison plans for 12 Lanterns to join the team.

Twelve parallel worlds! Twelve Green Lanterns! And one unstoppable menace! Hal Jordan joins the Green Lanterns of the Multiverse—including Bat-Lantern, Tangent Green Lantern and more—to save a dying Multiverse, defeat the relentless Anti-Man and embark upon their “Quest for the Cosmic Grail”! It’s another Morrison/Sharp science fantasy epic!

Thanks to the cover for the issue we have a decent guess as to who seven of those Lanterns joining Earth Prime’s Hal Jordan will be. Three more appear in issue 10 bringing the total of known Lanterns to 10. Two, including the mysterious black, fin-headed Lantern on the cover, will likely be revealed in issue 11. I’ve pulled together an explainer for these ten light slingers starting with the seven from the cover. They’re listed below from left to right in the above image.
