WHAT IS THE PHANTOM RING?


Phantom Ring
The Phantom Ring could access the full Emotional Spectrum, & since it directly connected the user to lớn the Spectrum, it required neither a Power Battery nor recharging. What made the Phantom Ring so singularly powerful, however, was that it did not choose a wielder.

Anyone could pichồng it up & wield the full might of the Emotional Spectrum. However, being mainlined into the full power of those emotions made the ring dangerously unstable, and it would overwhelm almost anyone who put it on. The rest of the Guardians, shocked at Rami"s recklessness, sent him into exile, until he found a way lớn destroy the ring.

The Phantom Ring is wildly unstable and dooms hlặng to explode. Unfortunately, he"s still mainlined inkhổng lồ the Emotional Spectrum, which gives Simon and Jessica plenty of trouble in trying khổng lồ save hyên. He rattles between channeling all seven colors of the spectrum, based on whatever emotion he happens khổng lồ be feeling in the moment.

Overwhelmed with compassion for those he"s hurt in his rampage, he removes the Phantom Ring willingly, which is quickly confiscated by the Green Lanterns.

His escape is also a major dangling plot thread that is yet to lớn be addressed, as the series ended almost immediately after his escape, to be replaced by Grant Morrison"s The Green Lantern, which is entirely focused on its own story.
