History of Mogo

Mogo has been one of the most valuable members in the Green Lantern Corps. He first made his debut in a short story “Mogo Doesn’t Socialize”. It was written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

The plot showed a bounty hunter who visits a planet looking for Mogo. The rarely seen Green Lantern was rumoured to be the most powerful Lantern. Which made the bounty hunter go after him.

In some time the hunter realized that Mogo was not on the planet. Mogo is the planet. Mogo would not socialize because his gravitational pull would destroy other planets. However, he would communicate with those who landed on him using some constructs.


He Served On A Larger Scale

Mogo dealt with a larger scale of scenarios than most other Green Lanterns. He gave habitat to entire species and civilisations in a symbiotic way.

However, the Central Power Battery of the planet is destroyed by Parallax. This sent him in a comatose-like state, drifting in space. He is eventually colonized by an alien race. Ultimately Kyle Rayner saves him and restores him.

He Became A Home For The Corps
