Fictional character biography

Aya is an Artificial Intelligence created by Green Lanterns Stel and Hal Jordan. She serves as an interface for Jordan's ship. They rebuilt and reprogrammed a ship found in a junkyard on Oa that was used by the Manhunters, called the Interceptor. The ship was kept by Jordan in a hangar in Sector 2000 on a planet known as "The Green House." She was presumably destroyed along with the Interceptor when it was destroyed by Kilowog.[1]

Smallville Season 11

Aya appears in the "Lantern" arc of Smallville Season 11, a comic book continuation of the television series Smallville, as a member of the Green Lantern Corps. She first appeared to explain to Superman and John Stewart that there is no treaty between the Guardians of the Universe and the Manhunters, and then she suggested that these Manhunters were rogue units that have gone mad without a purpose. Superman inquired who created the yellow rings that powered the robots and the Lanterns explain that in order to battle the Manhunters, the Guardians took extreme measures.[2] After this revelation Aya and the other Lanterns decide to return to their sectors and report to their post. The Green Lanterns later observed the battle on Earth. Aya stated that they had agreed to not interfere but Salaak confessed that he felt responsible for what happened, even though he had good intentions. The Green Lanterns were not sure if they could fight Parallax because the last time they did it, most the members of the Corps were killed and Oa was almost destroyed.[3] Salaak played John's message about the one thing that frightens Parallax, so they decide to find it and stop the fear entity once and for all. When Parallax is about to attack Superman and the de-powered John Stewart, the real help came when the Green Lanterns arrived on the scene with Ion entity of willpower.[4] Unfortunately with the yellow power ring was reset the same happens with the green ones, leaving the Green Lanterns temporarily de-powered as well. The two entities battled and with an assist from Superman, they banished Parallax to its realm, which was his greatest fear. In the aftermath, the Green Lanterns re-evaluated their mission parameters and as their rings finish their reboot, they decide to choose their own destiny.[5]
