Reading Green Lantern Corps #1 (Sept 2011) and the second panel of the comic has a GL talking to his ring saying:
GL: Ring, defuse all ammunition and log in weapons
RING: Ammunition defused. Weapons scanned
Why would a GL talk to his ring? I thought the ring acted soley on the willpower of its wearer doing what the GL wanted merely by thought alone.
If a GL has to talk to the ring to give it a command and then expect a confirming response, wouldn't that indicate their willpower to control the ring wasn't enough to bear the ring itself?
