Context

Powers and Abilities

The Power Battery that Ion uses is undirected by the GL ring that typically focusses the GL power. Ion’s powers are thus far less discrete than any previous GL’s. Ion tends to favor gross displays of power such as Energy Blasts and Force Shields over the more subtle workings of Energy constructs, though he is capable of using them when he thinks of it.

Overall, he is powerful but untried, though he demonstrates enormous potential.


History

Brett Pierce-Montoya was one of the few remaining conservationists. However, the nature conservancy he was working on was torched by LexCorp to clear the road for a lucrative mining project. Wounded and dying, Brett crawled into a cave to hide from the raiders. This is how he stumbled upon a burial chamber featuring a shrine containing a Green Lantern power battery.

It called to him, and he had a vision of the former Green Lantern calling out to him, urging him to take the battery and use it. The vision led him to believe that the former GL was trapped in another dimension, by LexCorp. The power battery melded itself to his dying body, and he became a new Green Lantern, the Earth’s protector.

Ion has met with Superman and Batman of this time period (see writeups for Batman Beyond and Superman Beyond). Yet he has so far has refused to help them, preferring to concentrate on protecting the Earth from harm in his narrowly environmentalist vision.

Description

In order to protect his identity and ensure that his family does not attract reprisals, Ion wears a version of the GL uniform that has a full-head face mask.

His version of the suit is a green body suit with green gloves and boots, white panels running up the center of his legs and abdomen, a black belt and black wristbands, abBlack visor over his eyes, and a huge GL symbol over his entire chest area.


Personality

Unattached to the GLCorps and bereft of guidance from the Guardians, Brett uses the power of the Lantern to:

  • Protect nature.
  • Mete out bloody reprisals on greedy megacorps.
  • Lay some smack down on the interests that allow them to prosper.

A hotheaded but enthusiastic young crusader, Brett gets into as much trouble as he prevents.


Quotes

“Face the power of the Green fury ! You’re finished destroying Nature ! The Earth rejects you…”


DC Universe History

GL Beyond takes place in the mid to late 21st century, long after the current Age of Heroes is over. The Mega-Corporations have become the de facto government. The little people have no heroes, and no hope of anything better than serving their corp until they are used up.
