IN COSMIC HIERARCHY
KYLE RAYNER IS THE LAST GREEN LANTERN
During Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight, Kyle Rayner first appeared. Particularly, the three-part story arc details the fall from grace of Hal Jordan into the cosmic being named Parallax.
In the story arc, Hal goes mad after Cyborg Superman orders the destruction of Coast City by Mongul, thanks to Warworld.
Then, he goes on a rampage murdering the Green Lantern Corps on his way to Oa. Soon, having destroyed the GL Corps, he quickly subdues Sinestro then proceeds to absorb the energy of the Central Power Battery.
Using their last energies, the Guardians sacrifice themselves to create and entrust Ganthet with the last Green Lantern power ring. Afterwards, the Guardian travels to Earth and encounters a struggling freelance artist by the name of Kyle Rayner.
Seriously, he entrusts Kyle with the ring and tells the young man to do what must be done. On that day, Kyle Rayner becomes the Last Green Lantern.
HOW KYLE RAYNER BECOMES ION
Nonetheless, the heroes succeed in defeating Parallax. Some time later, a new menace emerges that would threaten the very Earth’s existence. At the start of The Final Night, A Sun-Eater threatens to consume the sun and cause the destruction of New Earth.
Again, the heroes band together to stop the cataclysm. When a depowered Superman volunteers for a suicide mission to plant modules in the sun as it goes supernova. Yet, a young hero named Ferro recognizes Superman as a hero and decides to pilot the ship.
However, Hal Jordan as Parallax sacrifices himself by going into the supernova. Finally, he absorbs the supernova blast, channels it with his Oan energy then re-powers the yellow sun.
GREEN LANTERN: CIRCLE OF FIRE
During the event, Kyle fights a cosmic entity named Oblivion. As a result of his girlfriend Alex DeWitt’s murder, Kyle gave birth to the cosmic entity. Indeed, it is a product of Kyle’s rage and hatred out of his subconscious.
After defeating Oblivion, since the energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it is drawn to the residual Parallax energy in the sun. Later, it helps Kyle draw on the immense powers of Parallax and Oblivion.
Since Kyle’s ring has no yellow weakness and is formed from the energies of the Guardians of the Universe it is already very powerful!
GREEN LANTERN: THE POWER OF ION
In the story arc, Kyle has absorbed the energy of a neutron bomb that Grayven unleashed. Furthermore, Kyle now understands that his recent power boost is due to his feeding on the cosmic powers of Parallax and Oblivion from the sun.
Now the sun has a green spot and our GL’s life is about to change. In Green Lantern (2002) #145, Green Lantern fights Nero in order to claim the power. Ultimately, he is triumphant. In the heart of the sun, he bends to the power and becomes… Ion!
OVERPOWERED, GREEN LANTERN IS MERGED TO ION, AN EMOTIONAL ENTITY
From the beginning, the Ion entity existed as one of the Emotional Spectrum Entities. As matter of fact, Ion is the name given to the green Entity of Will.
Originally, Ion existed in the Central Power Battery, as the Entity that powered the green energy of willpower harvested by the Guardians of the Universe.
Importantly, it served as a protection against the yellow Emotional Entity of Fear, Parallax, which also existed in the Central Power Battery.
BECOMING ION, #KYLERAYNER’S WILLPOWER IS OMNIPOTENT

WHY ION IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING
AS ION, HE CLAIMS HE CAN CHANGE PARALLAX’S PAST WITHOUT ALTERING THE TIMELINE
In Green Lantern (1990) #150, Ion attempts to change the timeline. Previously, Kyle’s godlike behavior has alarmed Superman and the JLA.
In a conversation, Superman reminds Kyle that the mission of the JLA is to inspire and to protect humanity, and not taking away its choices by solving its problems.
In the issue, Ion contemplates the past Green Lanterns in the timeline: Alan Scott, Hal Jordan and Guy Gardner.
Particularly, he thinks about Hal Jordan who became Parallax.
Then, he is interrupted by Hal Jordan who is now Spectre.
When the Spectre inquires about Kyle’s purpose, Ion claims he can prevent Parallax’s existence without altering the timeline.
Though this is merely a statement of power, it does suggest Ion is nigh omnipotent in willpower.
HIS CREATIVIY MAKES HIM OMNIPRESENT
In Green Lantern (2002) #146, Jade visits Kyle at his studio.
There, she finds out that the GL has been working for hours and has completed high-quality comics ahead of schedule. In fact, he has not slept.
Even more impressive, Kyle tells her that as Ion his creativity has been unlocked and he is able to exist in multiple places at once.
For example, he is working in his studio and at the same time, also feeding the poor in Uganda.
Definitely, a Cosmic-Level feat of Super Speed since light travels around the Earth at 0.1337 seconds.
And we know according to the uncertainty principle, electrons travel at the speed of light and can be at two places at the same time.
Thus, it would take FTL speed for instantaneous travel.

ION REPOWERS THE CENTRAL POWER BATTERY AND RECREATES THE GUARDIANS OF THE UNIVERSE
In Green Lantern (1990) #150, Ion performs one of his most OP feats. Particularly, Kyle understands what needs to be done. Indeed, a new beginning is needed.
Here, entering the Central Power Battery, Kyle repowers it. At the same time, the Green Lantern resurrects the Guardians of the Universe as infants.
Definitely, a feat of Infinite-Level of Energy Projection considering the powers of the Guardians which are considerable.
ION SCANS ALL HUMAN DNA ON THE PLANET TO ID HIS FATHER IN 10 MINUTES
In Green Lantern (2002) #148, Ion performs a feat of super-intelligence.
In order to locate his father who left him and his mother when young, he scans the DNA of every human on Earth.
Afterwards, it takes him about 10 minutes in order to identify the matching DNA.
Definitely, a godlike feat requiring an intelligence capable of memorizing the 2.1*1019 letters in the human genomes of the entire human population.
From Black Panther, Doomwar #1, we can calculate the energy of DNA replication to be 3.2*1032 J or 6*1022 bytes/s of intelligence.
Thus, an Inventor-Level of intelligence. Visit the Intelligence Scale for more information.
