History

Background

Mogo is not a social Green Lantern and its interactions with the rest of the DC universe are not well-documented. It avoids announcing its presence, preferring to represent itself using pseudonymous holograms. In one incident, it sent holograms to purchase Lobo's dolphins.[issue # needed] When Lobo tried to retrieve them, a Mogo hologram persuaded him not to. Lobo never discovered he was dealing with a sentient planet. At the same time, Mogo has allowed alien races to live on its surface and has been willing to change its climatic conditions to suit them. These inhabitants of Mogo may not always know that their home is alive and watching them. Lobo is a DC Comics antihero. ...


Although Mogo's history (including its induction into the Corps) has never officially been revealed, some fans[citation needed] identify Mogo with the sentient planet Hal Jordan encountered in "The Strange World Named Green Lantern," Green Lantern (Vol. 2) #24 (October 1963). Hal Jordan is a DC Comics superhero, the Silver Age Green Lantern, and arguably the most famous hero to bear that name. ...


[issue # needed]When Hal Jordan destroyed the power battery on Oa and slew the Guardians, Mogo lost contact with the Green Lantern energy that helped sustain him. He travelled to sector 1014 to seek the aid of Ch'p, unaware that his friend had died long ago. Having relied on the emerald energy of the power battery to sustain him, Mogo lost consciousness and drifted through sector 1014 until he was discovered by a nomadic alien race. These aliens proceeded to strip Mogo of his natural resources and pollute his environment. Mogo's body reacted instinctively, creating constructs to hinder the aliens' efforts to exploit his resources. Mogo was finally rescued by Kyle Rayner, who used his power ring to reawaken the sleeping giant. Mogo offered to allow the aliens to settle on him and offered to take care of all their needs, but the stubborn beings chose to abandon their settlements. Mogo later revealed to Rayner that he was relieved the aliens had left, and that he had planned to give them terrible weather in retaliation for their pollution. In the DC Universe, Chp of the planet Hlven was a member of the Green Lantern Corps; like all Hlvenites, he resembled a somewhat anthropomorphic combination between a squirrel and a chipmunk. ... Kyle Rayner is a fictional comic book superhero from the DC Comics universe, known for most of his publication history as Green Lantern, a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. ...


Mogo appeared in Green Lantern Corps: Recharge #2, requesting back-up against Rannian and Thanagarian forces. Green Lanterns Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Stel and Green Man were dispatched to clear out the enemy fleets, and then enjoyed a respite on Mogo's surface. (Guy made metafictional remarks about Mogo wanting to socialize, recalling the famous Alan Moore story.) The Thanagarians are a technologically advanced civilisation from the planet Thanagar. ... Guy Gardner is a fictional character, a comic book superhero published by DC Comics. ... Stel, from Green Lantern Corps: Recharge # 2 (December 2005). ... Green Man, from Green Lantern Corps: Recharge # 2 (December 2005). ... Metafiction is a kind of fiction which self-consciously addresses the devices of fiction. ...


With the restoration of the Green Lantern Corps, Mogo has taken on the role of a training and recreation planet for his fellow Green Lanterns. Soranik Natu, Kyle Rayner and other Lanterns have travelled to his sector to ask for his council. Again, this is in contrast to his origin story, in which his contact with the rest of the Corps is minimal. Soranik Natu, from Green Lantern Corps: Recharge #5 (March 2006). ... Kyle Rayner is a fictional comic book superhero from the DC Comics universe, known for most of his publication history as Green Lantern, a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. ...


The Battle of Mogo

Mogo played a major role in the conclusion of the Infinite Crisis, in which a plan of the Green Lantern Corps, Superman and Kal-L to stop the villainous Superboy-Prime. The Supermen, Kal-El and Kal-L, took the deluded Superboy-Prime into the red sun Rao in a desperate gamble to depower him. With their powers waning, the Kryptonians managed to crash land on Mogo, before they would all perish in deep space. The Supermen managed to stop Superboy, but not before he managed to critically injure Kal-L. After the fight, the rest of the Green Lantern Corps took Superboy-Prime into custody.

Future

In a prophecy narrated to Abin Sur, it is said that Mogo will be the last Green Lantern. In a battle with the "Empire of Tears", "Ranx the Sentient City" will explode a blink-bomb within Mogo's core, killing the sentient planet and ending the Green Lantern Corps forever. The veracity of this prophecy has been questioned. Abin Sur is a fictional character and a superhero from the DC Comics universe. ...


Non-Canon

In the Green Lantern vs. Aliens limited series, Mogo was also the adopted home of a group of Linguafoeda acheronsis. It seems that years ago, Hal Jordan and a group of fellow Green Lanterns were charged with dealing with these Xenomorphs following the death of a Green Lantern, and Hal Jordan wanted to avoid killing them if possible, believing that they were just animals, and thus were not evil. His solution was to deposit them on Mogo, where they would be a threat to no one and would be able to live. Years after that, however, Kyle Rayner travelled to Mogo to rescue the crew of a crashed freighter. This was Rayner's first encounter with the sentient planet, although he didn't speak to Mogo directly. However, due to its non-canon nature, in their next encounter, Rayner does not remember this event. It has been suggested that Facehugger be merged into this article or section. ...
