Kong Becomes a Green Lantern in JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. GODZILLA VS. KONG

In the DC Universe, many worthy heroes have wielded the power of the Green Lantern power ring. Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, to name but a few. And of course, alien Lanterns like Kilowog. Once, an entire living planet was a Green Lantern, named Mogo. Well, DC’s latest G.L. isn’t quite as big as a planet. But he’s big enough to climb the Empire State Building. Yes, in the upcoming series finale of Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong, issue #7, King Kong will become a Green Lantern. You can see him glow with the emerald power of Oa in the image from DC Comics and Legendary Comics below:

You can read the official synopsis for Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong’s final issue, by Brian Buccellato, Christian Duce, and Luis Guerrero, right here:

On June 25, the crossover that no one expected reaches its climax with the release of Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #7, available at participating comic book shops and e-tailers. In this series finale, two worlds face annihilation in an all-out war between the DCU and Leg­endary’s Monsterverse! With the help of Godzilla and Kong, can the Justice League win a battle against a re-formed Mechagodzilla and a new, even more deadly, hybrid Titan—a byproduct of two worlds, the likes of which neither universe has ever seen!

Luckily for Kong, he doesn’t have to wear a giant silly domino mask as Green Lantern. So how will everyone’s favorite big hairy ape earn the power ring? Well, traditionally in DC lore, to earn the power of a Lantern ring, one has to be almost totally fearless. The Guardians of the Universe choose only those without fear to represent their sector of space. Considering that Kong has taken on Godzilla multiple times, and now heroes like Superman and the Flash, we think he’s safely earned the title “fearless.” We just want to know how he recited the Green Lantern oath. Is it just roars?
