Green Lantern (1941-1949)

Alan Scott survives an explosion during a test crossing of a trestle bridge and learns he was saved by the green lantern he carried; The lantern tells how long ago a meteor was formed into a lamp by a Chinese lamp maker and how it protected him from his murderous neighbors; Later the lamp was found by an asylum inmate, who re-formed it into a lantern and was cured of his insanity by the lantern; Now it brings power to Scott, who forms a ring out of part of it and uses his new abilities as Green Lantern.
