Concerning Green Lantern
All-American Comics #16, July 1940
Unemployed artist Martin Nodell needed work in 1940, went to visit the offices of All--American Comics, showed his art samples and was told to come back with superhero ideas. Completely unfamiliar with superheroes, Nodell walked to the subway, saw a workman with a green railroad lantern, and promptly dreamed up the idea of an avenging hero who is powered by a ring which is equally powered by the light from a green lantern - thus was The Green Lantern conceived.
