"Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Kilowog. The man of a thousand talents."
The Flash [1]

Kilowog was a member of the Green Lantern Corps.


Kilowog was something of an enigma to his teammates. At some times he appeared simple-minded, at others canny. At all times, however, he was a loyal friend and a stalwart warrior.

When John Stewart was put on trial by the people of Ajuris Four for the destruction of an entire neighboring planet, Kilowog was among several other Lanterns who arrived on the planet. The others joined in the crowd's vocal abuse of John, believing him to have disgraced the Corps, but Kilowog disagreed. He kept his disapproval to himself, until Hawkgirl shamed them into standing by his side. He spoke eloquently at John's trial about the several times John had saved lives, including Kilowog's own. However, his testimony was damaged on cross-examination from the prosecutor. When John was proved innocent, he and the other Lanterns joined the assault on Oa, which had been taken over by the Manhunters.

He was later seen among the team of Lanterns commanded by Katma Tui to combat Despero's cult on Kalanor. When the Lanterns were overwhelmed, Katma ordered him to flee back to Earth for reinforcements, despite his initial refusal to abandon his comrades. Kilowog arrived at Earth terribly injured, and while John sped to Kalanor to rescue Katma, Kilowog was healed by J'onn J'onzz, and he and Flash went to John's apartment to recharge his Power Ring from John's battery. Once that was done, he led Flash, J'onn, and Hawkgirl to Kalanor to join John and Katma.

To combat Despero's forces, Kilowog proposed, and then built from scratch, a complex carbon bomb. Mercifully, the bomb was not used, and the fight against Despero's forces continued on Kalanor.

Kilowog joined the assembly of Lanterns who attended Superman's funeral at Metropolis, who were given the honor of walking directly behind his coffin as the League bore it to its monument.

He was one of several Green Lanterns on Oa when AMAZO approached, and was subsequently enraged by its apparent destruction. Along with Katma, Kyle Rayner, and other surviving Lanterns, he followed the android to Earth to attempt to destroy it, but it was proved unnecessary when the android restored Oa.

Powers and Abilities

Like all Green Lanterns, Kilowog wields a Power Ring that enables him to create hard-light constructs from thought. He is also immensely strong and powerful.

He can eat anything, be it ice cream still in the container or a VHS copy of Old Yeller, and pronounce it delicious.

Though at some times he appears simple-minded, he shows surprising technological prowess, as witness when he built a complex explosive device from scratch, out of scrounged parts.


Kilowog has also appeared in the Duck Dodgers episode "The Green Loontern", this time voiced by John DiMaggio.
