John Stewart is a superhero in the DC Universe and is a member of the Green Lantern Corps and as well as the Justice League.


Selected by the Guardians of the Universe to be a replacement Green Lantern after Guy Gardner sruvived an accident, John Stewart eventually proved himself and became a full time Lantern.


John Stewart was born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up having to deal with a drunk, cruel father who abused his mother. John's father abandoned the family and his mother went on to become a respected community organizer. John, looking up to his mother, decided to himself to try to make the world a better place. When Stewart was old enough, he joined the U.S. marine corps in order to make the money he needed to get into college. Despite his mother's protests, he completed a full tour of duty during the War on Terror. Afterward, he was deployed to Gotham City to help refugees evacuate during a huge storm.

John Stewart later became an architect, then was recruited by the Green Lantern Corps. He fought many times alongside Hal Jordan and the Justice League. His first mission was a failure, he had to protect a racist politician. John later discovered that the politician was attempting to stage an assassination for political gain. John's mission was a success and John earned the respect of Hal Jordan. 

John then became an occassional substitute for Hal when he was unavailable, including assisting the Justice League.  When Hal quit being a Lantern for a time, John was promoted to being a full-time Green Lantern by the Green Lanterns leaders, the Guardians of the Universe.

For years, John filled the role of Green Lantern and met and fell in love with fellow Green Lantern Katma Tui and the two eventually married.  Later, Katma was murdered by the villain Star Sapphire and Stewart refocused his life by becoming the administrator of "Mosiac World" a patchwork of alien communities forcibly relocated to Oa by a mad Guardian.  John was eventually given the title of Guardian, never before given to one outside of the race of the Guardians of the Universe, but would later relinquish it for practical reasons.
