Mogo is a blue, earth like planet with a band of green vegetation around its center. The vegetation forms the pattern of a Green Lantern ring, showing his status as a corps member. Mogo is by far the largest Green Lantern member. The living planetoid often serves as training ground and rest spot for various members of the green lantern corps. Mogo also has another important role. It is his (Its?) job to control the distribution of Green Lantern rings to each space sector. Mogo’s first appearance was in a green lantern arc titles “Mogo Doesn’t Socialize.” Mogo often prefers to appear via hologram, rather than in person, as his gravitational field would wreak havoc on any other planet. Therefore, Mogo prefers not to “socialize.” Mogo is the only sentient planet known to exist, although Ranx The Sentient City is comparable. Abin Sur has also prophesied that Mogo will be the last of the Green Lanterns, his destruction will seal the fate of the corps forever.
