The Daily Blam has posted an image of the Power Battery from the 2011 DC Comics superhero film Green Lantern, and it looks… about the way we should have expected, as weird alien technology in movies tends to look like weird alien technology. Compare this with the Power Battery from the comics (below), which is fairly sleek and looks like Hal Jordan picked it up at a sporting goods store.
The Power Battery’s an important part of the story: Green Lanterns use it to energize the rings from which they get their superpowers. Originally the rings had to be recharged every 24 hours, but in recent years it’s been a deal where the energy runs out as it’s used up, like a cell phone. No word yet on whether the rings will carry an app that locates the galaxy’s nearest Chipotle.
