This list is in reference to the Lantern Corps. If you see something missing, shoot me a message, would ya? Thanks!

List items

  • The energies created by the emotions of sentient life, visible as different wavelengths of light. This concept appears only in the DC universe.


    The Emotional Spectrum was created early on when sentient life first existed in the universe and its thoughts and feelings became powerful enough to coalesce into in a whole band of energy. This band of energy conformed to the spectrum of visible light with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet all corresponding to a specific emotion. Each band of emotional energy is represented by a corresponding Emotional Embodiment.

    Rainbow Girl, a substitute Legionnaire in the 31st century, is known to be able to access the full powers of the Emotional Spectrum.

  • The energies created by the emotions of sentient life are personified as sentient beings comprised of those energies.


    At the beginning of the universe, the Emotional Spectrum was created with the first sentient life form. With the first sensations of sentience came thoughts and emotions which never existed before. With more and more use, each emotion gained footing throughout the universe. These emotions gathered energy which coalesced into the Emotional Spectrum.
