|This article is about the Jessica Cruz Green Lantern from G1. For the generation two version, see Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz) (G2).|
Jessica Cruz is a tan-skinned teenage girl with green eyes and long brown hair. She wears a black and green Green Lantern corps suit, featuring the corps logo in the centre of her chest. She also wears a green face-mask, some white gloves, alongside her Green Lantern ring.
Prior to becoming a Lantern, as shown in the web-series, Jessica has brown eyes and is wearing a black vest, with a green sweater wrapped around her waist and long-blue leggings.
She is voiced by Cristina Milizia in the English version. Her Green Lantern ring is voiced by Matthew Mercer.
Jessica Cruz debuts in Ring Me Maybe Part 1, as Lois Lane's shy camera-woman, filming an interview with Hal Jordan during his going-away party at the Capes and Cowls Café, who explains that a new Green Lantern ring will appear to replace him. When Grundy appears, she ducks under a table and comes out after Grundy is defeated. In Ring Me Maybe Part 2, when Sinestro appears and kidnaps Starfire, The Flash and Wonder Woman, she flees and hides in the Café where she encounters the new Green Lantern ring who selects her to be the new junior Green Lantern for Earth to replace Hal. In Ring Me Maybe Part 3, she tries to hide from the ring, and helps Batgirl find the pass code for Sinestro's ship. Batgirl encourages Jessica to accept becoming the new Green Lantern to defeat Sinestro. In Ring Me Maybe Part 4, she battles Sinestro after he captures Supergirl, and defeats him using constructs of Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl which defeat his own as Batgirl saves her kidnapped schoolmates, after which Lois notices her as the new Green Lantern. Soon after, she accepts to become a new Super Hero High student.
In Ha-Ha Horticulture, Green Lantern appears flying in front of the school with other students before being put to sleep by fumes from Poison Ivy's sleeping poppy experiment. She is presumably woken up when Ivy and Harley Quinn distribute pollen in the school to counteract its effects. In Tamaranean Dance Club Part 1, she attends the dance at Super Hero High foyer with Korrugar Academy students, but does not appear being ejected by Bleez and Lobo or participating in the ensuing fight against the Korrugar students. In By the Yearbook, Jessica saves a construction worker hanging from a suspended i-beam using a slide construct as Wonder Woman takes pictures for the Super Hero High yearbook. She later appears flying in a school hallway looking at a completed yearbook with Mary Marvel.
In the first part of Fortress of Solidarity, Green Lantern appears skating around the tree during Super Hero High's winter holiday ceremony. She later gives a tray of tamales from her family to Thunder and Lightning and watches the tree lighting ceremony.
Depiction in LEGO media
Green Lantern has a leading role in the movie LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Super Villain High, starring as one of the central heroes of the movie alongside the main three (Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Batgirl). She is first seen in a group sparring match, being easily defeated by her partner Frost. When Wonder Woman order the team to use the partner swap strategy, she takes on Poison Ivy, and frustrates her when her large construct of a plant mirroring Ivy's become friends. Later, she fails her driving test with Red Tornado when she goes off the help Supergirl defeat a giant plant sent by Kryptomites to frame Poison Ivy. When the four grow suspicious of the new Uber High School, Green Lantern unwillingly goes undercover, pretending to have the desire to attend. She joins Harley, Cheetah, Ivy, Frost and Catwoman one their first mission, which is interfered by Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but the three are mercilessly defeated by five Uber High students (with the exception of Green Lantern, who tried to prevent Cheetah from harming Wonder Woman). When Green Lantern tells Cheetah the truth about Uber High when they return from the mission, Cheetah reveals that she knew ever since she got there, and has secretly been working with Lena Luthor. Lena releases her yellow Kryptomites on Green Lantern, causing her to pass out. She is then held captive in a magical cave, reunited with the main three, and together, they are able to escape. When they return to Super Hero High, Harley, Ivy, Catwoman and Frost challenge them to another sparring match, but they are able to convince them that they're all friends, with Green Lantern convincing Frost. Together, they reunite with Cheetah and defeat Lena Luthor. Green Lantern joins everyone else as they agree to have another sparring match, albeit more friendly and with mixed teams.
Interestingly, unlike in the main web series and original movies, Jessica attends Super Hero High alongside Hal Jordan, it can be considered that the LEGO movies and shorts are technically non-canon.
