With a population of over sixteen billion, Bolovax Vik was one of the most crowded planets in the universe. They all shared
one mass, communal mind. They were apart, yet one with one another.
Kilowog was a genetic scientist
and one of Bolovax's most brilliant minds. He was chosen to be a member of the GREEN LANTERN CORPS because of his strong will,
total honesty, and absolute fearlessness, essential criteria for all GREEN LANTERNS. He was given a power ring--a device that
allowed him to create just about anything via emerald beams of energy. It was an honor to be chosen GREEN LANTERN, but it
meant leaving Bolovax and going into space on missions, and that was tantamount to exile. Nevertheless, Kilowog carried out
his duty with pride.
During the CRISIS, Bolovax Vik was destroyed. The power ring's force field
automatically protected Kilowog, but not his people. Acting quickly he "absorbed" all sixteen billion life energies into his
ring. By sheer force of his will, they survived until Kilowog found a suitable planet to release his people on. Although they
exited the ring in a new transparent bodily form, each Bolovax still contained his or her individual essence, Suddenly, the
planet exploded thanks to the renegade GREEN LANTERN, SINESTRO. Kilowog could not rescue them again. He was alone once more--for
|| Along with some other GREEN LANTERNS, Kilowog
was assigned to Earth, where he spent some time in the Soviet Union. He was convinced socialism was the closest philosophy
to that of Bolovax Vik, but he couldn't find any government that practiced it purely. While in the USSR, though, Kilowog helped
their scientists perfect the ROCKET RED BRIGADE, a symbiosis of forced genetic evolution and advanced technology in the form
of powerful armor.
His interest in genetics led him to join the NEW GUARDIANS, supposedly the
next step in mankind's evolution. Kilowog helped them establish an island base before GUY GARDNER invited him to join the
Kilowog has always had a soft spot in his heart for ARISIA of Graxos IV, a fellow ex-
GREEN LANTERN who helped him to face his ultimate loneliness and loss of his people, but ARISIA loved HAL JORDAN, so she and
Kilowog have become the closest of friends, nothing more.
Being a part of a team, a greater whole,
is important to Kilowog. His greatest fear is being alone, but with so many friends her has nothing to worry about. He is
exceedingly loyal, kind, generous, and humble.
All Bolovaxians are strong, bulky creatures, and in Earth's lesser gravity Kilowog's strength is even greater. He rarely
tires, can lift several tons and can crush solid steel. His hard skin deflects bullets and knives, but a sizable bomb will
knock him off his feet.
Kilowog is a mechanical genius. He can instantaneously assess how a machine
can be improved, tear it down, and rebuild it in short order. He can pilot just about any vehicle, and is a leading authority
UPDATE: In the events preceding the destruction of the Oan Power Battery, Kilowog
was killed by an enraged Hal Jordan.
