What is Awkward Lantern?
Someone who transcends awkwardness in social situations, and even can control it and use it to their own advantage. An Awkward Lantern is somebody who can talk to anybody, and redirect any awkwardness in a conversation unto the other parties, by refusing to acknowledge it. Named after the superhero Green Lantern, because whereas a Green Lantern has control over the color green, an Awkward Lantern has control over awkwardness. Although they are rare, awkward lanterns are usually very adaptable and quick-thinking individuals. A true one can be dangerous if not a friend, because they have allies in the most unexpected places.
