No, not just anybody can become a member of the Green Lantern Corps - heroes have to be chosen. Unless those longing for intergalactic greatness have $20, that is. For around that price tag, you can purchase all of the ingredients necessary to cobble together your very own Green Lantern power battery. While it might not result in literal will-powered energy manipulation, it would certainly make for a nice accessory to any Green Lantern cosplay plans you've got in the works.

So, what exactly do you need to make the power battery? You'll want to buy four plastic flower pots, two flower pot trays, a Christmas bauble, a camping LED lantern for the glow effect and two green plastic lids. And how do you cobble them all together, you ask? Well, I won't ruin the surprise for you - that's the fun part! Head on over to Instructables to find out how to create one of these very impressive and nerdy lanterns for yourself.
