I believe in the current storyline the Lanterns are basically no more at the moment (again).
Following the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Guardians left the universe to make babies with the Zamarons. They left one Guardian behind, the "Old Timer," who had been stripped of his powers and immortality after being "contaminated" following his stint travelling along with Hal Jordan and Oliver Queen.

The Corps went on for a while, with the sectors abolished, allowing the Lanterns to go where they wanted. Eventually, Sinestro popped up again, caused trouble, and was captured. He was brought to Oa where the GLC gathered to decide on a punishment.

They ultimately decided on the death sentence and killed him, or so they thought. Really, due to some past history with the Zamarons, Sinestro's people, the Korugarians could somehow turn to energy or something and this caused the Central Power Battery to explode.

All of the GL's there were left powerless, except the Earth Lanterns. They spent a few years this way, until the Old Timer went nuts, regained his powers, and the Guardians returned to take care of him.

They decided to remain while the Zamarons stayed behind to give birth. They restarted the Corps with the three Earth GL's, giving Guy Earth to watch over, John remained on Oa (to watch over some towns from various planets the Old Timer brought to Oa), and Hal was given the task of restarting the Corps.

It was a much smaller Corps that was active for this period, straight through "Emerald Twilight."

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

Well, there have been crossovers that show the two universes co-existing on the same Earth-- 2 Superman/Spider-Man team-ups, Batman/Hulk, X-Men/Teen Titans, Darkseid vs. Galactus. The second Superman/Spider-Man team-up, written by Jim Shooter, actually does have Clark going to work for JJJ and Peter going to work for Perry.

The JLA/Avengers team-up shows the two teams in separtate universes as does the Marvel vs.DC minis. The Marvel vs. DC minis actually briefly merged the two universes into the Amalgam Universe.

Uh...no. The Green Lantern Corps is still very much active. Of course, the current storyline is about the Guardians going mad with power and deciding to wipe out the Corps, but that hasn't happened yet.

As for what should happen in a universe merge: Deadpool meets the Joker. Nuff said.

No problem there. Not like there was anything in Jersey or Delaware anyway. Also gonna have entire countries popping up, like Latveria and the gorilla empire.

What about the possibility of having different races of Atlanteans cohabiting and perhaps fighting over a combined Atlantis?

No, Krypton was destroyed by the Celestials for being one of their failed DNA experiments.

Why? From their perspective those cities would have always been there. Once they merged they would have a shared history and geography.

DC already did that with Poseidonis (Aquaman) vs Tritonis. Lori Lemaris). The blue Atlanteans would just be another group.(Neptunis???}

I actually played around with this idea a few years back

THE DC_MARVEL CHRONOLOGY

PRE-BIG BANG- The End of the First World. Galen from the planet Taa is absorbed by the Cosmic Egg that the Universe is collapsing into.

20 BILLION YEARS AGO: The Big Bang. The Universe/The Source is born. Eternity, Infinity, Chaos, Order and the Endless are born.

18 BILLION YEARS AGO: The God World forms. It is home to the Elder Gods of the Second World.

15 BILLION YEARS AGO: The War in Heaven, God World is destroyed sending out the Godwave. As the Godwave spreads across the Universe, Gods arise.

10 BILLION YEARS AGO- Sentient life evolves on the planet Maltus.

8 BILLION YEARS AGO- Galen, now called Galactus is reborn
Eon, a sentient quasi-physical entity is created by Eternity to become the cosmic custodian of the universe

4.8 BILLION YEARS AGO: Apokolips and New Genesis form from the shattered remains of God World

5 BILLION YEARS AGO- On Maltus the scientist Krona attempts to discover the beginning of the Universe. This causes a disruption in the Universal balance. To combat this the Maltusian decide to take action, but they cannot agree on what action. Some feel they must form a group of guardian to restore the balance. Others feel they must try and create beings who will restore the balance. A third group feels they can only watch and let things fix themselves.

The first group moves to Oa and became the Guardians of the Universe

The second calls themselves the Celestials and travel from world to world testing and experimenting on their inhabitants.

The third group is called the Watchers

The Sol System and Earth are formed.

Several immortals, from various worlds begin to call themselves the Elders of the Universe.

Eon, sensing the universal unbalance, appoints the first Protector of the Universe granting him the quantum power bands

3.5 BILLION YEARS AGO- The Godwave strikes Earth; the first of Earths Elder Gods arise: Belathauzer, Chthon, Gaea, Set, Y'Garon, and others.

3 BILLION YEARS AGO- The Guardians create the Manhunters. When the Manhunters fail, the Guardians create the Green Lantern Corps.

A group of Guardians with a more proactive approach split and form the Controllers.

2 BILLION YEARS AGO- The female Guardians leave and form the Zamarons.

On Earth Gaea gives birth to Atum. Atum sensing the Elder Gods have turned evil seeks to eradicate them. Many flee to other dimensions to escape.

I BILLION YEARS AGO- In one such dimension, Darkworld, an Elder God spawns a new race of Gods: Weaver, guardian & master of multi-colored threads of magical energy; Chaon, twisted god of evil & chaos; Gemimn, goddess of order; Tynan, cosmic balancer of order & chaos; Deedra, goddess of nature; and Jheryl, goddess of truth & knowledge.

The first of Earths Elemental are created.

500 MILLION YEARS AGO: Earth,the first insects.

245-65 MILLION YEARS AGO: Dinosaurs rule the Earth (Mesozoic Era).

200 MILLION YEARS AGO: Earth, the first mammals.

65 MILLION YEARS AGO- Earth, the Dinosaurs die out.

MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO- The Celestials perform experiments on the inhabitants of Skrullos, giving them their shape shifting abilities.

Over the next millennia The Skrulls create a star-spanning Empire with outposts from the Andromeda Galaxy to the Milky Way.

The Skrulls discover two sentient races on the planet Hala: the Kree and the Cotati. They set up s completion to see which one can join the Skrull Empire. The Skrulls choose the Cotati and the enraged Kree kill the Skrulls and take their technology.
Over the next centuries the Kree use the stolen technology to build their own empire and eventually attack the Skrulls, setting off the Kree-Skrull War.

The First Host of the Celestials arrives on Krypton. They create Kryptonian Eternals and Deviants. After a long war the Kryptonian Deviants are exiled beyond the borders of the now galactic Kryptonian Empire.

The Kryptonian Deviants wander into Skrull space and are enslaved. Millennia later their Skrull-Kryptonian descendents leave the empire en mass on an exodus that leads them to the planet Mars.

1 MILLION YEARS AGO- The First Host of the Celestials arrive on Earth and begin experimenting on the primitive proto hominids there. This gives rise to the Eternals and the Deviant sub-species. The Celestials also leave a modification in the genetic code of the proto-Hominids called a metagene. When activated by exotic energy, this gene can cause various physiological transformations.

One group of Eternals founds the City of the Golden Gate on the Continent of Atlantis. This gives rise to the Atlantean Empire which spreads over the Earth. The Atlanteans discover magic and begin to worship the Darkworld Pantheon.

900,000 YEARS AGO- The Kree create the Intelligence Supreme in response to the Skrulls creating a Cosmic Cube.

200,000 YEARS AGO- Homo Sapiens first appear on Earth.

50,000 YEARS AGO- A radiation from a meteor strike on Earth grants immortality to Cro-Magnons Vandar Ag (Vandal Savage) and Klarn (The Immortal Man)

Atlanteans launch their first interstellar craft.

The Celestial Second Host arrives on Krypton and the Kryptonians rise up against them. The Celestials break the Kryptonian Empire shattering it into a million pieces scattered throughout the Universe. Its remnants found on worlds like Daxam, Stronia, Yttrium and Dakkam. The Kryptonians are stripped of their Eternal powers and confined to Krypton.

45,000 YEARS AGO- Much of the Atlantean Continent is sunk following a metor strike. The City of the Golden Gate is destroyed. Survivors found new cities on other continents.

35,000 YEARS AGO- The Godwave energy, tapping into the minds of nascent Homo Sapiens species creates new Pantheons of Gods, giving rise to the Third World.

30,000 YEARS AGO- The Godwave energy returns to its source and New Gods arise on New Genesis and Apokolips. The beginning of the Fourth World.

25,000 YEARS AGO- Two factions of Eternals go to war. The losing faction leaves Earth but crashes on Uranus. On Uranus the Eternals find a Kree weapons depot and defeat the Sentry guarding it. Using Kree technology the repair their ship and head back to Earth. The Kree intercept the Eternal ship and capture several Eternals. The survivors manage to found a colony on Titan.
The Kree dissect their Eternal captives and discover the Celestials handiwork. They send a ship to Earth and perform their own genetic experiments on humans, giving rise to the Inhumans.

20,000 YEARS AGO- Humans begin migrating to the remnants of the continent of Atlantis.

18,000 YEARS AGO- The Deviants conquer Atlantis’s Lemurian colony in the Pacific.

16,000 YEARS AGO- The Celestial Second Host arrives on Earth. They sink Deviant Lemuria and the rest of Atlantis in the Great Deluge. The Atlanean cities of Posidonis, Tritonis and Nethria survive, as does a colony in the Arctic. Using both magic and science the surviving Atlanteans adapt to life under the sea.

The Eternals retreat to their hidden mountain refuges, limiting their interactions with humans.

The Guardians try to contain all magical energy into the Starheart and cast it into deep space.

I'll just state for the record that the idea that Martians (DC style) are hybrids of Skrulls and Kryptonians is a little bit brilliant.

I liked that too. And I take it that once Kal-El got to Earth, his latent Eternal powers would be reactivated by the yellow-sun radiation?

Marvel has a few fake cities of its own. There was a city introduced in Spider-Man as the home of one of Spidey's nineties villains callled "Fireheart, New Mexico." (The villain was like Bruce Wayne with the Cheetah's powers.) Also, for the first two issues of their comic the Fantastic Four were based in "Central City." ( I smell an FF/Flash crossover! The FFF?)
