Literary Critique of Ring Manipulation 

Magic rings are major plot device in the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. In fantasy magic rings often exact a price! This seems to be the case of magical objects in fantasy in general. However, this is not the case with science-based rings in superhero comic books.


The Mandarin (Marvel) has ten rings and each ring has a different superpower (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe V1 #15).

Pro-Boscis the Procurer (Marvel) wields the Rings of Vice in Warlock V1 #12.

In the beginning the DC universe had one colored ring. Green Lantern (DC) uses a green power ring.

Then there was an explosion of rings in many different colors and each color has slightly different properties because each color represents a different aspect of the emotional spectrum.

Trading Card Games use more rings than any other type of magical object.
