Printing: Sinestro is sporting something like an anime sweat bead on certain Green Lantern #1 covers thanks to a printing error. Somebody on eBay is trying to sell one as a variant for $10. Cool speculation, bro.
Becoming a Green Lantern isn't really a choice in DC Comics lore. One day you're crashing planes or whatever, the next you're getting yelled at by Kilowog. The ring chooses you, Poozer! If you want to wield a construct-making ring, but you're a gamer without the power to overcome universe-ending levels of fear (a strong indication that you're sane, by the way), DC Universe Online'
