Justice League Action Figures Wave 3 Due: Jan, 2009
With powers and abilities that are in sync with Mother Earth, Brion Markov has become known as Geo-Force.
He is another fictional superhero character created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo for the DC Comics franchise.
Though not as famous compared to other DC Comics superheroes, Geo-Force has been through several epic battles of his own and is merited as one of the founding members of the Outsiders and as a member of the Justice League.
The elemental abilities of Geo-Force were actually gained from a scientific experiment conducted by Dr. Helga Jace. This was borne out of necessity and desperation for Brion Markov, prince of Markovia, for he had to protect his country from invasion.
By becoming Geo-Force, Brian was triumphant in thwarting the enemy attack albeit with some help from several costumed heroes such as Batman, Metamorpho, Katana, Halo and Black Lightning.
Together, this group came to be known as the Outsiders and under Batman's tutelage, Brion was able to work on and polish his powers, abilities and overall personal character.
Since all of Brion's powers are in some way related to Earth, he has harnessed the ability to manipulate the planet's seismic field as well as its gravitational field to make any object heavier or lighter. He can also project terrestrial "lava blasts" from his hands and by using zero-gravity on himself, he can use these lava blasts for propulsion enabling him to fly at great speeds but only for a short period of time.
Geo-Force is at his strongest when he is firmly planted on the ground and this connection gives him superhuman strength, durability and endurance. But his strength is also his weakness. Since the Earth nurtures him and heals his wounds, all his powers and health becomes useless if he is taken out of his comfort zone for a long time.
This is one aspect which might explain why Geo-Force has opted to spend much of his time in Markovia than at the JLA's headquarters in space.
It has been said that home is where the heart is and this adage is so true with our planetary superhero.

In brightest day,
In blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight,
For those who worship evilâ€™s might,
Beware my power!
Green Lantern's light.
Contrary to popular belief, a Green Lantern is not a part of any Halloween decoration.
A Green Lantern is actually the name of a fictional superhero character that has appeared in the popular DC Comic book series.
Several individuals have taken on this character known as an officer of the intergalactic police force, or the Green Lantern Corps.
The first ever Green Lantern, Alan Scott, was created by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell in July 1940. But after the Second World War, DC Comics stopped publishing Alan Scott and the Green Lantern altogether due to the weakened sales of all comic books.
Then in the late 1950's during the surge of comic book sales known as the "Silver Age" era, writer John Broome and artist Gil Kane were assigned to restart the Green Lantern character. But instead of staying with Alan Scott's character, a test pilot named Hal Jordan was created this time.
Since then, different individuals have played the role of Earth's Green Lantern and most notable of these were Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, and Kyle Rayner. Although Hal Jordan became a founding member of the Justice League of America, every Green Lantern has been, at one point or another, a part in this superhero alliance.
The title of Green Lantern is bestowed upon anyone in the Green Lantern Corps and each officer is given one weapon called a Lantern Power Ring which is made of advanced technology by the Guardians of the Universe. These rings are only given to the worthy candidates for it gives the user great control over things corporeal. The limits of the ring's abilities are not clearly defined but it has been referred to as "the most powerful weapon in the universe". The Lantern's ring has shown that it is capable of achieving anything yet it is still reliant to the imagination of its bearer.
Here are just some few features of the ring that allows the Green Lantern to accomplish: create a green 'solid-energy' or force field; fly beyond light speed; create plasma bolts during combat; the ability to walk through solid wall; time travel; invisibility; place anything into a state of suspended animation.
As powerful as it may seem to be, the ring must be periodically charged by contact with a Power Battery a.k.a. Lantern. This Lantern draws energy not from your usual power outlet but from the Central Power Battery on the planet Oa- the headquarters of the Green Lantern Corps at the center of the universe.
Wherever that is...
As the line goes "with great power comes great responsibility", the same holds true for the Green Lantern. For as long as the wielder of the ring has enough willpower and strength to wield it, sector Earth will always remain safe from evil.

The Flash is one individual the traffic police surely won't have the chance to hand a speeding ticket to!
He is a fictional superhero character created in 1940 by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert for DC Comics.
The Flash is well-liked because of his somewhat immature but goofy character which always brings fun to the rather serious atmosphere of superhero life.
Amongst the well-known superheroes in the DC side of the comic book kingdom, the Flash is the only one with a single superhuman ability- super speed.
The Flash was once named the Scarlet Speedster because of his red colored costume with a winged metal headgear and lightning bolt insignia on the chest. Although not as physically strong like the rest of the superheroes in the DC universe, The Flash's ability to run or move at extremely high speeds that in effect violates some laws of physics is a unique trait unmatched by any other.
It has been told that The Flash got his unique ability through inhaling some heavy experimental water vapors while asleep.
This might be such a feeble story-telling attempt to create an origin story but it somehow worked and the end result was well-accepted by the public. Add to that the flamboyant character of The Flash and DC Comics ended up with a beloved superhero character.
Throughout the years, The Flash has been represented by four different individuals who have somehow at one point or another acquired the power of speed. These four are: Jay Garrick, known as the original Flash of 1940; Barry Allen, the longest tenured Flash who suited up from 1956-1986; Wally West, from 1986-2006 then 2007-present; and Bart Allen (2006-07).
Each version of The Flash character has been a key member of either the Justice Society of America or the Justice League but only two were lucky enough to get featured in television. The first was the Barry Allen character who was featured in a live action TV series in 1990 and was portrayed by actor John Wesley Shipp.
The second is the Wally West version which is currently featured in the cartoon TV series "Justice League". This animated version also features a costume compressed to a very small fraction of their normal size in a special ring and is released via the use of a special gas.
Although The Flash is not readily considered a major star in the superhero world, he is still a force to be reckoned with in his own unique way.

If there ever was one super-heroine character that everybody would want to go out on a date with, then Wonder Woman would probably be one of the top choices.
You wouldn't even have to worry about defending her from harm for this lovely lady can easily protect herself (and you) from any misfits of society with her superhuman strength and fighting ability.
Wonder Woman is a fictional sultry superheroine character created by William Moulton Marston for the DC Comics and her character is also known as Princess Diana who is an Amazon warrior and princess from the land of Themyscira.
She is one of the most recognized heroes in the DC Comics lineup and is also one of the three founding members of the Justice League of America, a team of superhero characters committed to protecting the planet from villains.
Aside from comics, Wonder Woman's character was also adapted into a television series which ran from 1975 to 1979.
The superheroine was portrayed in the small screen by the gorgeous Linda Carter who made male audiences drool crazy with her sexiness.
Since she is an immortal goddess, Wonder Woman is described to be as beautiful as Aphrodite; has superhuman strength, speed and power drawn from the Gods of Olympus; has the abilities to fly and to communicate with animals; has great wisdom and intelligence; and healing factors derived from being an immortal.
As a warrior she is excellent in hand to hand combat which is why anyone foolish enough to take her on will really be in for a good ass-whooping. Although her only weakness is projectiles such as arrows and bullets, Wonder Woman's can easily deflect these using her quickness together with her Bracelets of Victory. Aside from her bracelets, she also uses the following weapons in combat: the boomerang tiara, the fashionable sandals of Hermes that allows her to travel between worlds, and the Lasso of Truth which she can use to know the truth of your intentions towards her, so be warned.
But this Amazonian warrior can also act like a lady if the situation calls for it. Since she lives in Earth as Diana, she knows how to be diplomatic and rational. Just make sure to be a gentleman and donâ€™t tick her off with bad behavior.
