Green Lantern is the name of several superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. They fight evil with the aid of rings that grant them a variety of extraordinary powers, all of which come from imagination, fearlessness, and the electromagnetic spectrum of emotional willpower. The characters are typically depicted as members of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic law enforcement agency. 1

“George Washington (February 22, 1732– December 14, 1799) was an American political leader, military general, statesman, and founding father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Previously, he led Patriot forces to victory in the nation’s War for Independence. He presided at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which established the U.S. Constitution and a federal government. Washington has been called the “Father of His Country” for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the new nation.” 2

In 1785 sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon cast a life mask of the face of George Washingtion, in 2023 using Photoshop Digital Yarbs reconstructed the life mask of George Washington.

Now, let's imagine George Washington becoming an 18th century Green Lantern.

In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power, Green Lantern's light.

My dear countrymen,

Today, I wish to recount a tale from the annals of history that speaks of a time beyond our own, when the seeds of freedom were sown and heroic endeavors extended beyond the ordinary. Gather 'round, for I shall narrate a story of bravery, valor, and mystery – a story that paints me, George Washington, not just as a soldier and statesman, but as an 18th-century Green Lantern!

In my time, the 18th century, the birth of a nation was underway. The American Revolution raged, and my comrades and I faced seemingly insurmountable challenges in our quest for independence. However, in the shadows, an extraordinary event transpired that would alter the course of my life and add a dimension of heroism to my story that few have known until now.

It was during the dark winter of 1777, when General Lafayette and I were encamped at Valley Forge, that I encountered an otherworldly presence. A mysterious figure, glowing with an ethereal light, revealed himself to me. This entity introduced himself as Abin Sur, a Green Lantern, a cosmic defender sworn to protect the universe from evil.

Abin Sur had crash-landed on Earth, and before succumbing to his injuries, he sought a worthy successor to wield his powerful weapon – a ring, forged by an ancient race, fueled by the green energy of willpower. This ring bestowed unimaginable powers upon its bearer, allowing them to create constructs limited only by their imagination.

I, George Washington, was deemed worthy of this honor, chosen to become the first human Green Lantern! With the ring now upon my finger, I was granted the ability to conjure whatever I could conceive, to harness the energy of the stars themselves. It was a daunting responsibility, but I embraced it with the same resolute determination that guided me in the fight for American independence.

This newfound power allowed me to be in several places at once, keeping watch over our troops, guiding them, and providing aid in times of dire need. Many stories emerged of a mysterious green figure appearing on the battlefield, turning the tide of war in favor of the Continental Army. My men, inspired by these legendary interventions, fought with renewed vigor and hope.

However, despite my incredible abilities, I understood that I could not win the war alone. The true strength of the American Revolution was found in the hearts of its people – farmers, tradesmen, and soldiers who believed in the cause of liberty. So, while I utilized the Green Lantern's power, I never lost sight of the fact that true victory lay in the collective will of my countrymen.

Throughout the years of the Revolution, my dual identity as both a mortal man and a Green Lantern remained a closely guarded secret, known only to a select few. I continued to wield the ring in service to humanity, striving to protect the principles upon which this great nation was founded.

As the war drew to a close, my time as a Green Lantern came to an end, as the ring was called back to its rightful place among the stars. Though I returned to being an ordinary man, my experiences as a Green Lantern had forever changed me. The principles of hope, willpower, and courage that I embodied as a Green Lantern continued to guide me in my role as the first President of the United States.

So, my dear friends, as you remember me for my leadership during the Revolution and my service as the nation's first President, know that there was a time when I also wielded the power of the stars as an 18th-century Green Lantern. Let this story be a reminder that each of us has the potential to be a hero in our own right, fueled by the strength of our convictions and the spirit of liberty.

May the light of freedom forever shine upon this great nation.

Your humble servant,

George Washington

"Amazing work and quality. George was a handsome man and this picture does him justice, unlike the toothless, old man images of him. He was in his 50s when he became President. The only change I would make would be to show him with dark, reddish hair like he had in his youth. Thanks!"
