So looking upon GL issue #26 we get to see that black mercy wields two sides of the corpse for a brief moment but decides to cast out the yellow ring and becomes a full green lanter, now would it be possible for one to be a member of ALL lantern corpse?

yeah i read it...

i'm not sure because black mercy is a 'plant based' Weilder, so her 'brain' might work differently to humanoids...

but basically i think it's a one person = one type of ring deal

Okay,... here we go....

Hope - Almost everyone can wield that, just need to be in some sort of eager moment where you need it

Hate - .... well... self explainatory

Compassion - .... Hate and love go side by side if you "can" wield one it is likely you can wield the other

Averice - "Greed" ... maybe for power or other things, is also almost wieldable for everyone

Will - if your a thickhead than your likely to wield it lol

Fear - If you have one thing you truly fear (whihc everyone should have, its an instinct.) and can show others to fear you, you can wield this.

Death - ... If your dead/undead than you can wield this. (or "possibly" if your a killer, needs comfermation)

i personally could wield all 6 apart from death. and "i think" I'm perfectly sane or maybe totally mad....

The Black Mercy never actually used both rings, it was sought out by both rings. The Green Lanterns say it has a choice and it removes the yellow ring. I don't think that necessarily means it could have actually used both at the same time as actions with one ring would be incompatible with the other.

Come to think of it, since the green lantern corps have been given "green light" on lethal force and most of them are using it, could it be if a "killer" is a possible host for the Black power ring, that the green lantern corps will be infected by it?

It's not just a case of having emotions, lots of superheroes have willpower (if not all), but not all can use a green ring. Green Arrow struggled because his willpower was different to the type the ring uses.

But that is speculation, I didn't rule it out, I just said that we don't see it.

If the ring says it "You HAVE the POWER to instill great fear" and "Have the power to show great will" then yes, it could have used both, no speculations.

.... speaking of that, if someone (Let's say kyle rayner even though he is confirmed as a blue lantern almost) really wants to bring back someone he loved from the dead, would he be able to wield it? ( y'know who)

I didn't say that it couldn't use the yellow ring, others have used both a green and yellow ring, I was just saying that it couldn't (as far as we know) use both at the same time.

Oh, well methos already said that a plant functions diffrently than a humanoid specimen, so it would be possible for it to do so.

I think the problem with having multiple rings would just be that most people couldn't power all the rings all the time. In order to be effective with any ring, you need to be really "strong" in one emotion. To use multiple rings you'd have to be strong in all the emotions. Even if you were capable of powering all of them though, you couldn't do it all together. You could probably do a few together, like green, yellow and red for example, but you couldn't do red and violet or indigo (think those were the colors) because rage and compassion or rage and love would contradict so you couldn't be fueling both at the same time or very well, but you could have a ton of willpower and be very angry and cause fear (the Hulk might be a character hat could do this combination) all at the same time without stumbling over yourself. If you're switching between different emotions I doubt you'd be as effective as someone focusing all their effort on one ring and it would just be better to go with the one ring you're best with since you probably wouldn't be perfectly even with every color anyway. There was that girl from the legion of substitute heroes that controlled the energies of all the colors (except black, maybe if she ever dies she'll just switch) and I think anyone with multiple rings would end up like her. Also, the rings furthest from green control their users so not only would the user have to be switching emotions to use them all, the rings would be fighting or control and decrease the user's effectiveness even more.

I think that the yellow Fear ring would be the easiest to wield by most people....I mean we all know fear and with this ring we could instill all kinds of fear! I think Hope would be the hardest

I see no reason why one entity human or alien could not possess all the rings. In fact Mongul the 2nd for a time seemed hell bent on doing just that. and I see no reason why not maybe only one ring would work at a time but could the not be the reason why in the legion of superheroes there is no GL's and no knowledge of what happened to the corp the merged and are white lite enteties or blakholes converging on themselves?
