Green Lantern - Kyle Rayner
Kyle Rayner was a struggling-but-gifted freelance comic book artist who lived and worked in Los Angeles. Kyle was raised by a single mother as an only child, however it was later revealed that his father was a Mexican-American CIA agent named Gabriel Vasquez, and that his alias had been Aaron Rayner.
Hal Jordan, grief-stricken over the destruction of his home town of Coast City, went on a mad rampage killing various members of the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians of the Universe. Kyle was found by the last surviving Guardian of the Universe, Ganthet, and he gave Kyle the last working Green Lantern power ring. Kyle Rayner was not chosen because he was fearless, but because he was able to feel and overcome fear, thus making him less susceptible to Parallax’s influence.
