Awesome 1961, a flare-gun would have been the modern take on it. I wonder when Johnny was first depicted lighting up the four?
As far as comics, this just comes out today.
There's probably many more in the comics, I seem to remember Green Lantern Alan Scott using it, although I'm not finding the image.
I liked how his power tended to be depicted as burning mystic flames whiles the Corps energy was more solid light, not sure if they still do that?
