While most of the cast consists of Lanterns (known or not), it also features new members of the Justice League, the Society (Villains United) and even lower-level heroes and villains.
Though the cast is large compared to most DC games, there is a consistent main cast throughout the game.
|Trent Oliver Morrow||White Lantern Corps||Josh Keaton|
Though initially Trent Morrow was unsure of what to make of the different Lantern Corps, he eventually came to his own conclusion: the Guardians of the Universe couldn't be trusted to keep the universe safe; they had bungled the job many times: Volthoom the First Lantern, the Manhunters, even the Green Lantern Corps on some occasions - all failures, courtesy of the Guardians. They didn't even see the Blackest Night coming because they thought it was a fairy tale! With this in mind, Trent is setting out on his own quest: re-establishing the White Lantern Corps by creating a White Central Power Battery; with armor shaped from an old Manhunter, Trent is setting out to bring a new dawn to the Lantern Corps!
Uniting all 7 emotional energies into one focal point, Trent succeeded in bringing about the return of the White Lantern Corps, though he remains the sole member; intending to succeed where the Guardians failed, Trent, now the new White Lantern, is ready to ally with any forces necessary to ensure that life in the universe continues to exist and intergalactic criminals get locked up!
|Kilowog||Green Lantern Corps||Kevin Michael Richardson||Drill seargeant for the Green Lantern Corps, Kilowog quickly found himself training Trent in the use of Lantern Constructs.|
|Arkillo||Sinestro Corps||Robin Atkin Downes||Though Sinestro gave him and the Corps orders to leave Morrow alone, Arkillo has been making several attempts to kill Trent behind Sinestro's back.|
|Larfleeze||Orange Lantern Corps||Dee Bradley Baker||Infuriated at Trent using his "shinies" to create a White Lantern Central Power Battery, Larfleeze is unsure of what to do about the new Lantern.|
|Atrocitus||Red Lantern Corps||Rupert Degas||Seething at the new Lantern for crossing his Corps, Atrocitus is angry at the new Lantern's seeming belligerence, though he remains frightened of Trent's power.|
|Fire||Justice League||Shawn Sides||Supermodel turned government agent turned superhero turned internet star turned Checkmate operative turned Justice League International member, Beatriz Bonilla (or just "BB") da Costa has had an career path as exotic as her name, though she goes by the simple code name Fire on the field.|
|T. O. Morrow||Life of Tomorrow||Jens Anderson||Trent's insane uncle, Thomas Oscar Morrow (better known as T. O. Morrow) became obsessed with creating life from his mechanical andriods, after his last android, Red Tornado, gained sentience and joined the Justice League; though Thomas never really interacted with his nephew (since he's a criminal and can't call, because obvious reasons), he does acknowledge Trent's existence, as most of Trent's technological expertise comes from his uncle's tutoring.|
|Brainiac||Legions of Brainiac||Corey Burton|
|Trigon||Seven Deadly Enemies of Man||Joe Mandia|
|Nekron||Black Lantern Corps||Robert Kraft||The lord of the unliving and absolute monarch of all the dead, Nekron has been around for millenia, existing back when there was a completely dark void where only he was and where he reigned surpreme; but when all life came along, he was locked in the land of the dead and forced into exile. Seething for revenge, Nekron plots to return sometime during the Blackest Night prophecy.|
|Eclipso||Forces of Evil||Jason Liebrecht|
|The Guardians of the Universe||The Third Army||Various|
Though the Entities all belong to other Corps, Trent relies on them to fuel the White Lantern Central Power Battery, as well as for his Entity Assault attacks.
Though the main cast is pretty consistent, that doesn't stop other relatively well known characters from making an appearance or two, be it as a challenge or as a minor supporting role.

Act 1: Battery Not Included (yet)
The game opens on the Moon, with Trent standing by a large machine, contemplating the odds of his recent misadventure: his quest to bring about the return of the White Lantern Corps, but with a functional Central Power Battery; noting that all he has are a small army of OMACs, Morrowbots and a couple Manhunters, Trent considers how he will hold off against the assault of the seven Lantern Corps closing in on his location. While he tells the 7 entities to prepare themselves for the "energization process", he looks back on the events that caused this "necessary event".
It started 4 months ago, in Gotham's Otisburg district; a square-off between the Green, Yellow and Red Lanterns cost over thousands of dollars in damage, as well as many lives - civilian and Corps members alike. Trent was there to witness the collateral damage, and decided to do a little investigation. Grabbing a nearby Green Lantern device, he took it back to his apartment and decoded all the data he found on it: Lantern Sector maps, the Corps Oath, even the history of the Corps and the Guardians of the Universe; studying up the Guardians' history, Trent was appalled at how they were allowed to keep defending the universe, considering their track record had permanently marred their trustworthiness - Volthoom, the first Lantern? Nearly drained the entire Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum. The Manhunters? Malfunctioned and murdered almost 4 vibrant life-filled sectors. The Green Lanterns? A police force with plenty of crooked cops like Sinestro in them. Reviewing this knowledge to the letter, Trent could only surmise one conclusion from the data - the Guardians of the Universe were "guardians" in name alone; they couldn't keep the universe safe because they were too high and mighty to see that emotions could actually be the key to protecting the universe. Reading further on the "Blackest Night" report, he came up with an idea "so crazy it just might work" - use the emotional entities to recreate the White Lantern Corps by making a White Central Power Battery. Building a suit out of OMAC parts, LexCorp Gladiator parts, and a Manhunter's frame, Trent made the suit capable of long-range deep-space traversion; ready to go on a journey, Trent left to complete the first phase of "Operation: White Light": gather the necessary supplies from the Lantern planets of Ysmault, Okaara, Qward, Oa, Odym, Nok and Zamaron.
Though Trent's midly suppressed Obsessive-Compulsion wanted him to visit the Lantern planets in order of the rainbow's colors, he decided to approach the different Corps planets due to differing danger levels: Nok, Odym, Zamaron, Oa, Qward, Okaara and Ysmault. As for the trips to the planets, they were pretty repetitive: infiltration, scuffles with some Corps members, a 2-in-1 clash with the Corps Leader and Liutenant, and eventually a short battle with the Emotional Entity that ended with Trent coercing it to use its energies to help bring a new force into existence.
After the Battery was charged, a sudden error occured that forced Trent to make an internal repair, otherwise the Battery would self-destruct and take the Moon with it; though he succeeded in repairing the Battery, Trent was trapped inside when the White Lantern Power Battery filled with energy. Though the various Corps got to see the White Lantern Central Power Battery get fully charged with energy, none saw the man who made it; just then, a bolt bursted out of the Lantern's core. That bolt was Trent, now supercharged with the energy of White light; now ready to lead the White Lantern Corps (which was only him), he had to deal with some obstacles in this endeavor: the Lantern Corps that had him surrounded. Kilowog, Atrocitus, Arkillo and Larfleeze all were waiting for either an explanation, revenge, or just getting their shiny back (I'm sure you guys can figure out who wanted what). Engaging them, Trent fought and defeated all of them, forcing their field leaders to agree on a treaty with the new Lantern: they don't bother him, he doesn't bother them. With that said, each corps departed for their homeworlds; as for Trent, he goes back to Earth to see what he could solve with his new powers (and remaining recruit OMACs and Manhunters).
