Grey Energy Conduit: The rings use Grey energy supplied by a Power Battery, which in most cases takes the form of bright grey light. The Grey energy an infallible connection to the universe. Grey is not just one light but many and most powerful of light, and thus the universe speaks through it. A Grey Power ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and has the ability to affect and use fundamental forces of the universe, including electromagnetic energies such as gravity, radiation, heat, light, and powerful blasts of concussive force. The ring can also create fields of force formed from an unknown energy that was bound by the users' will. The limitations of such use are the skill, knowledge and imagination of the user. A Grey lantern rings can drain other rings, and when doing so for black power rings destroy their energy. Grey lanterns can also wear six rings at a time, each with a different spectrum. This being possible partially because of the Grey rings own affinity.

Determination. Situated between the green will and blue hope.

Gray lanterns determination for peacekeeping after putting the ring on makes it possible to retain such power by shutting off the emotions not in use. Initially the ring being used had its emotions switched on, when Volgen was freed by hal Jordan, he could use two at a time.

  • Grey Energy Blasts: The ring can be used to fire blasts of grey energy or create weapons such as projectiles of them. The ring can project beams of force powered by the will of the user. The weapon's power is more an indication of the power of the user.
  • Force-Field: The ring can create various force-fields of various sizes and shapes to protect the wearer and others around him. With the cosmic scope of a Blue Lantern's abilities, it is only natural that the power ring is designed for operation in space. The ring creates a force-field around the wearer, protecting him/her/it from the hazards of the void including filtration of stellar radiation and microscopic particulate matter which would ordinarily be fatal should the space debris strike the ring wielder at high speeds. An atmosphere appropriate to the ring wielder's biology is created inside the force-field, body temperature is maintained and waste products are removed. Gravitational stresses which could cause injury are stabilized for the ring wielder. Theoretically, a ring wielder could use the ring as his/her/its sole source of life support.
  • Energy Constructs: The ring can form constructs of grey energy. The ring is a weapon capable of transforming the wearer's thoughts into physical constructs through the wearer's mastery of The Grey. A Grey Lantern can create any particular item or construct that they can imagine as long as they have the mastery necessary to conjure it into existence. The constructs are made out of grey energy, which is a tangible form of pure grey, and they exist only as long as a Grey Lantern is fueling it. Items created by the rings are not indestructible and are only as powerful as the inspired grey of the Grey Lantern creating them. The types of constructs usually reflects the ring wearer's personality.

  • Grey Empowerment: The Grey Lantern ring is unique in that its base of power. Grey lanterns also instill those nearby that are good, with determination.
  • Phasing: The Power Ring allows the wearer to pass through certain solid objects, such as walls. Which objects that are not penetrable are not known, but it may depend upon the strength of the wearer's mastery and the density of the object's molecular structure.
  • Avarice Immunity: A Grey ring is not vulnerable to the Orange Lantern Corps' favored tactic of draining energy from other Corps' rings. The reason of this is that while Avarice erodes Will, it can't consume Grey, which is Determination. Situated between the green will and blue hope, thus rendering Avarice useless against Grey.
  • Black Lantern Resistance: A Grey lantern is immune to Black Lantern rings' Emotional Reading and Life Extinguishing. A Grey lantern rings can drain other rings, and when doing so for black power rings destroy their energy.
  • Kryptonian Charging: Similar to how the light of a Green Power Ring can be used to create artifical Kryptonite energy to harm a Kryptonian, the Grey energy from a Grey Power Ring can charge the powers of a Kryptonian or Daxamite.
  • Flight: By the manipulation of anti-gravitons and directed molecular movement, the ring allows the user to fly at incredible speeds.
  • Environmental Playback: Upon request, the power ring can recreate a holographic environment based on data in its memory banks. The ring wielder can observe events in a ghostlike state, but the ring wielder cannot alter the outcome of the playback. All objects in the playback will appear in the full spectrum of colors, regardless of the wielder's level of expertise creating simulacrum's. The power ring will automatically end the playback if outside interference warrants the ring wielder's undivided attention.
  • Invisibility & Light Refraction: A ring wielder can render him/her/itself invisible by willing the ring to bend light waves around his/her/its form, as well as that of the power ring. Presumably, a similar action allows an experienced ring wielder to create objects of colors. As Hal Jordan's experience grew, he was able to create power ring illusions of people and objects. It can be assumed the ring wielder would not risk the extra time and effort to create other colors in a combat situation.
  • Energy Twin: The power ring allows the wearer to create an "energy twin" of his/her/itself that can travel at far greater speeds than that of the ring wielder's physical form. While the energy twin is active the ring wielder remains motionless, his/her/its life force is needed to guide the energy twin. The energy twin can not alter its surroundings, and may only be perceived by another ring wielder as a grey, ghostlike image. Any knowledge gained by the energy twin is transferred back to the ring wielder's physical form upon recontact with the body.
  • Energy Absorption: The ring can absorb and store most other energies. Unlike the Green Lantern power rings, a grey power ring can replenish the normal store of energy the ring has. A ring that needs recharging, but contained a store of electricity could only discharge that electricity, for example.
  • Wormholes & Spacial Warps: The power ring grants its wearer access to wormholes in space, enabling the ring wielder to rapidly cut time and distance needed for transport. Black holes can be navigated by experienced ring wielders.
  • Time Travel: Time travel is possible with the power ring, though the further forward in time a ring wielder travels, the more mastery of grey it takes.
  • Full Cellular Regeneration: This ring has an ability to heal physical injuries. Grey Lanterns can use the ring to repair injuries in themselves or others and in some instances resurrect the dead.
  • Electromagnetic Scanning: The ring has a wide range of detection abilities based on the imagination of the user. If one can conceive of it, they can detect it. Magical effects like clairvoyance, seem to be the most difficult for the ring. All electromagnetic phenomena are within the range of the ring, including radio, television, infrared, ultraviolet, and high frequency band communications.
  • Galactic Encyclopedia: The earlier rings worn by the Corps functioned as references for their users. Having the vast knowledge of the to draw upon, each ring functioned as a ready reference on most peoples, stellar events and conditions that may have been seen by other rings or other Grey Lanterns. The rings also served as a repository of adventures had by the Grey Lantern and these mission reports were stored in the Prime Battery for review and training.
  • Universal Translator: Keeping in mind the myriad of worlds, life forms, and cultures throughout the cosmos, it is understandable why Guardian Shalloc added a translation system to the power ring.
  • Material Alteration: The Grey Lantern's uniform is not made out of fabric. It is created by the Power Ring whenever the wearer wills to wear it. It automatically appears over the wearer's normal clothing, and vanishes when the wearer wills to return to their civilian attire. Most Grey Lantern wear similar uniforms that are programmed into the ring by default. However, each Grey Lantern is able to adjust their uniform to fit their own needs, personalities and whims.
  • Precognition: Upon receiving the ring, Grey Lanterns will experience a moment of the future by the Grey Light, directly related to the wielder and with the express purpose of lifting their spirits.
  • Ring Duplication: Most Power Rings are capable of automatically duplicating themselves. Each duplicate typically shares the qualities and capabilities of the original ring. While the thought of an unauthorized person getting a hold of a power ring and making duplicates for nefarious purposes, their ability to inflict damage is limited because each duplicate still requires to be recharged by a personal power battery.
  • Emergency Beacon: A Grey Lantern in distress can use his/her/its power ring as an emergency beacon. The alert can be directed to a Grey Lantern's neighboring sector, or it can be a Corps-wide alert.
  • Homing Beacon: A homing beacon in the power ring can lead one Grey Lantern to another. The power ring can be ordered to disguise itself to elude power ring wielding trackers. Most often ring wielders will allow the beacon to signal their location to others.
  • Mind Alteration: As the power ring relies on thought and will to operate, mind tampering is not impossible, the real difficulty lies in properly applying the power. There lies a risk of catastrophic damage to the mind should mistakes be made. A ring wielder can use the power ring to erase portions of an individual's memories.
  • Thought Relay:The power ring can also be used to beam information from the ring wielder to another being. Grey Lantern Crop have used this technique to share information regarding their enemies during combat situations.
  • Security Protocol: The rings can be programmed. They can be coded to the wearer so as to make them unusable if stolen.
  • Preset Conditions: Commands can be stored in the ring to be executed at a later date, even if the bearer is not wearing the ring.
  • Superhuman Strength: While not superstrength of the conventional sense, a Lantern while using constructs created by the ring becomes capable of lifting/moving tremendous weights far heavier than 100 tons with little effort.
  • Inability to be traced: Grey like life exist in some form everywhere and anywhen, a Grey Lantren can't be track by anyone other than a Grey Lantern.


  • Energy Interference: As the continuing power of the ring's connection of "universal grey", it has a tendency to cause a form of interference to other power sources.
  • Recharge Protocol: The rings require a recharge, though it is unknown how much time must pass between recharges.
  • Mental Instability Protocol: Drug use, neural interference, vertigo or other forms of mental incapacitation can render the wearer unable to use their ring, rendered useless.
  • Power Tap: A Grey lantern rings can drain other rings.


Like other power rings the Grey Lantern rings have an advanced, almost sentient A.I. which can communicate with the ring bearer. As with other rings corresponding to their colors, the grey rings emphasize ((Determination. Situated between the green will and blue hope. )) and are programmed to spread it.
