EQUIPMENT: Sam’s Engagement Ring – When he received his powers from the Green, the force informed him that he would need something close to his heart through which he could channel his powers. Having intended to put an engagement ring on Sam’s finger shortly before the train crashed, Scott chose that very same ring to be his weapon as an act of honoring his dead love. The mystically-empowered ring has 400 Body Points.

HISTORY: Alan Scott was a young, openly gay media mogul who dedicated his work to the heroes who gave their lives three years prior in the war against Darkseid. He was in a relationship with Sam Zhao and while on a business trip in Sam’s native China, he worked up the nerve to propose. Unfortunately, just before Sam could accept the proposal, the train crashed suddenly, killing nearly every passenger except Alan – including Sam.

After the crash, a Green Flame appeared before Alan Scott and told him that he had been chosen to become the protector of the Earth. With a threat on the horizon, it urged Alan to accept the combined power of the Earth’s energies, using the engagement ring intended for Sam as a conduit for that power. This would allow him to create green energy constructs, limited only by his imagination. Though the Green Flame had saved Alan, it could not do anything to save the others, and so Alan accepted the offer for the sake of his lost love and the others who died.

Almost as soon as Alan became the protector of the Green, an opposing force chose its own Avatar. The Grey chose Grundy as its champion, and the dead man began sending the force of decay throughout the earth. He waited at Washington, D.C. for the Green’s protector, claiming that they could not co-exist.

Alan, upon seeing the destruction caused by Grundy, went to confront him, and was joined by other heroes; The Atom, Hawkgirl and Flash. During the battle, Alan realized that the only way to defeat Grundy was to confront the Grey. Alan sent his essence to confront the Grey but the Grey used the image of his dead lover, Sam, to tempt him. However, Alan soon saw through the deceit and left the grey, returning to his body.

In order to defeat Grundy, he dragged the man to the moon, where he would be so far removed from the Grey as to be powerless. However, having been disconnected from the Green himself, and after exerting the last of his power to throw three nuclear missiles into outer space, Alan crashed down towards the Earth. At the last second, he was saved by Hawkgirl.

Once back on the ground, the Flash laments the havoc wrought by the powers of Grundy, whom before his defeat had succeeded in eradicating almost all plant life on earth. The Green Lantern, driven by instinct proceeds to focus the earth’s energies and release them into the ground; causing new sprouts and crops to form at the area the energy touched. When the Flash inquires on what exactly he did, Alan replies that much of what he does is instinctual and that he’s only partly aware of what he’s doing, but that he believes that he has given the earth the boost it needs to rid itself of Grundy’s decay.

The Flash then goes on to suggest that they form a new trinity, like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman before them. Eventually, these new “Wonders of the World” expand to include heroes such as the Huntress, Power Girl, a new Superman, Red Tornado, and others.
