Figures Toy Company is quietly creating the entire DC Universe with their line of DC Comics action figures. Talking about creating figures you never thought you would see, FTC has done it with this Super Friends throwback – Lex Luthor as Green Lantern!
In the episode titled, “Secret Origin of the Super Friends”, the Legion of Doom goes back in time to stop the heroes from becoming heroes. Lex Luthor disrupts the origin of Green Lantern by appearing where Hal Jordan was working as a test pilot inside a simulator pod when a green energy beam surrounds the pod. Luthor tells Hal to get out of the simulator, and as he does, Luthor takes his place inside it as it is carried to a crash-landed spaceship piloted by Abin Sur, who then gives Luthor the power ring and energy lantern of the Green Lantern. With this power now in Luthor’s possession, the Green Lantern in the present time fades away as he helps Hawkman and Black Vulcan finish repairing the Justice League satellite (forgetting GL’s existence)
