    basicly my question is this

    which transformer character would fit into which lantern corps?


    dont know why really but for some reason i just can't help but picture g1 optimus prime sporting his diaclone powered convoy colorscheme as a member of the blue lanterns if only becuase the guy happens to be in his own way a living symbol of hope will power and faith in a manner of speaking

    megatron i could all to easily see him as being either a member of the yellow lantern corps, the red lantern corps and or even the black lantern corps or all 3 over time since the guy pretty much covers all 3 of those in his own way

    For those not familiar with the Green Lantern mythos:

    Red Lanterns - represent rage, anger. Typically so much rage and anger that they have no ability to reason.
    Orange Lanterns - represent incredible greed. They want it all, and they don't want to share with anyone.
    Yellow Lanterns - warriors wielding fear as a weapon. Made up of those capable of instilling great fear, not necessarily evil characters, but also those heroes who intentionally cultivate a fearsome reputation to make opponents think twice about confronting them.
    Green Lanterns - represent emotional neutrality, and specifically willpower and courage. Theirs is the ability to overcome great fear, or probably at this point, to find balance in all emotions for the greater good.
    Blue Lanterns - represent hope. Those who instill hope tend to be Blue Lanterns, the kind of character who can show up and tell you "all will be well" and make you believe it.
    Indigo Lanterns - represent compassion. Those who are capable of sparing all others, they also mediate between the other colored corps.
    Violet Lanterns / Star Saphires - an all-female group, their main attribute is love. When great love is threatened, they show up, and they also use love to heal broken individuals and make them better.
    Black Lanterns - the dead, risen anew. Only real qualifications are A) currently dead and B) will cause some sort of emotional reaction from someone among the living, whose emotions (and heart) they will tear out and offer up to fuel their dark master.



    With that bit of explanation out of the way...

    Red - Galvatron. He is pure rage at his worst. He fits the mold perfectly.
    Orange - Super Link Galavtron / Energon Megatron. He wanted the power of Unicron for himself, and stopped at nothing to get it. Alternatively, Car Robots Gigatron, whose greed for power led him to overload and left him vulnerable to defeat after he'd pretty much put himself in an unbeatable position.
    Yellow - IDW's take on Overlord. The way just about everyone, on either side, is afraid of him is testament to his ability to instill great fear.

    Optimus Prime, depending on the series, is either Hope or Compassion. Sometimes both.

    Ops COULD be a Black Lantern just for the fact he usually dies in every series.
    Starscream - Orange

    Ah, good call! That's pretty much an exact fit, right down to why he was brought back.

    Edit: All my choices are G1.

    Swindle would be a perfect fit as an Orange Lantern. Possibly Starscream too.

    Powerglide as a Star Sapphire.

    Grimlock, Megatron, or Sideswipe as a Red Lantern.

    Prime could be a Green, Blue, or Indigo Lantern.

    Shockwave or Devastator as a Yellow Lantern.

    Seaspray would make a good Indigo Lantern.

    Really the vast majority of the Autobots are suitable candidates for the GLC. As are the vast majority of Decepticons suitable candidates for the SC.

    Not unless you count his "death" during the movie as an actual death. More likely a Blue or Green Lantern for him.

    I'm going to try to go with TF's that haven't been picked, but some of the mentioned one's are too perfect.
    Red Lantern: G1 Rampage, he's 99.9% rage & .1% Television Junkie, and the cable just went out. Alternatively IDW Thunderwing would work.

    Orange Lantern: G1 Swindle, he sold his teammates for some spare cash.

    Yellow Lantern: BW Rampage, making others feal Fear is like his drug. Alternatively, Tarantulas or G1 Dirge(see the latter's bio).

    Green Lantern: G1 Prowl, I have a feeling the Guardian's would greatly appreciate his control over his emotions and he seems to have a strong will.

    Blue Lantern: Waspinator, with all the crap that he goes through all he can do is hope.

    Indigo Tribe: G1 Bumblebee, he's great friends with the humans & probably has great compassion for them.

    Star Sapphire: BM Black Arachnia, she did everything to get Silverbolt back(I am NOT putting BW Silverbolt in an outfit like that).

    Black Lantern: Animated Prowl, he would definately bring out emotions in alot of Autobots.
