Alien being with Green Lantern Ring enhanced abilities granting the wielder the ability to create forms and devices of green energy from their imagination, transmute materials, phase through solid objects, become invisible, fly at supersonic speeds; achieve superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, immunity to harsh environments and an ability to communicate with all known sentient species.

Above average human with keen reflexes and steady nerves. An exceptional pilot of military and civilian aircraft.

Note: The imprisonment within the Central Power Battery of Parallax - a yellow being composed of pure fear - created an impurity making Green Lantern Rings incapable of manipulating objects colored yellow, and the champions of the Guardians of the Universe, the Green Lanterns, susceptible to the only thing that could break their will - fear.

With few exceptions the Power Ring is limited to a 24 hour charge and must be recharged in the Power Battery on a daily basis.

The predecessor to Earth's Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Abin Sur served with the Green Lantern Corp for close to an Earth century.

He had contact with the human race about a decade after becoming a member of the galactic police force and would eventually return in search of a successor after being fatally injured by the robotic Legion.
