Honnu was a native of Ovacron Six and member of the Green Lantern Corps. The warriors of Ovacron 6 disdain weapons, so Green Lantern Hannu refuses to use his ring for such a purpose, employing it largely for transportation while relying on his great strength and combat skills in conflicts. Hannu is a massive humanoid, with irregularly-proportioned flesh resembling stone. When not overcome by the rush of combat, Hannu is generally stoic. He takes tremendous pride in his strength and fighting abilities, as well as in his place in the Green Lantern Corps.
He had been sent by the Guardians of the Universe to stop Hal Jordan when he was possessed by Parallax, but was supposedly killed. However, Honnu was discovered years later on Biot, the homeworld of the Manhunters. The Cyborg Superman had been using him, along with numerous other forgotten Lanterns, as a power source. Jordan and Guy Gardner helped Honnu and the others defeat the cyborg and destroyed Biot.
Following his return to the Green Lantern Corps, like his "Lost Lantern" brethren, Hannu maintained a grudge against Hal Jordan for his actions under the influence of Parallax. During the Sinestro Corps War, Hannu and the lost Green Lanterns discovered that the Sinestro Corps were resurrecting the Anti-Monitor on Qward. The Lost Lanterns saw severe casualties inflicted from the Anti-Monitor in which Hannu took initiative action in saving his teammates in blinding the Anti-Monitor and providing themselves to escape with assistance from Hal Jordan. When the war shifted to Earth, Hannu fought and killed his Sinestro Corpsman counterpart Horku, and then coming into terms to forgive Hal Jordan by returning the favor in leading an army of Green Lanterns to save Coast City from destruction.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Flight: Via Power Ring.
- Hannu hails from the planet Ovacron Six; a world where using any kind of weapon tarnishes a warrior's good name. For that reason, few have ever seen Hannu weild his ring. He prefers to rely on his own brute strength.
