ok, i'm trying to think of more colors that they can have, but the problem is that most of the colors look too much like the others, such as Orange looks too much like the Sinestro Corps yellow...

anyone have any thoughts?

so far the canon ones are...

Red

Green

Yellow

Pink

Blue

what color would you add to the mix?

in theory, if you had Black in one universe, then in the Anti-Matter universe (Qward) you'd have white doing the exact opposite job...

i can't see that working in the new DCU with it's infinite universes now...

and here is the problem...

i can't see Metallics working well as Lanterns, it could be, but i doubt it...

Orange looks too much like Yellow, as Purple looks too much like Pink...

and brown... can anyone seriously imagine a "Brown Lantern Corps"???

that would be the final nail in DC's coffin if you ask me

Spectrum says:

"I think its going to be the whole seven ROYGBIV, i think yellow w will have sort od died out and "

Red - taken

Orange - looks too much like yellow

Yellow - taken

Green - taken

Blue - taken

Indigo - taken (pink)

Violet - looks too much like Indigo (pink)

hence the confusion

not quite sure what that was an attempt at...

i think they're trying to do a complete color wheel, remember that the "lanterns" use 'light' not 'paint' for their colors as well, so Brown, Grey, Black, White and Metallics are a real improbability...

i mean the way Lanterns work is by Light, or Plasma... not 'paint', as such they have completely different rules for color relationships and opposites

Parallax had lain dormant for billions of years, its true nature hidden by the Guardians to prevent anyone from trying to free it. Being yellow in color, Parallax eventually came to be referred to as simply "the yellow impurity."

This was the reason why the rings were useless against the color yellow: Parallax weakened its power over the corresponding spectrum; hence only someone with the willpower to overcome great fear could master the power ring.

Yellow Lanterns were originally created by the Qwardians from the Anti-Matter universe...

the Yellow ring, before it took on it's "Fear" persona, was originally given to Sinestro, then Guy Garder took it over for a while, using it for good. Then it was given to Alex Nero before the latest incarnation of the retcon using the "fear" storyline

to an extent...

but the new Yellow Rings don't use "Power batteries" like the Green Lanterns... the are powered solely by fear

Would a color like Cyan be possible? Would techincally be considered a blue I guess, but they did do a pink one.
