The colors of the Emotional Spectrum are harnessed as power sources by various organizations wielding power rings. The Emotional Spectrum is divided into the seven colors of the rainbow, with each color corresponding to a different emotion: rage (red), avarice (orange), fear (yellow), willpower (green), hope (blue), compassion (indigo), and love (violet). Rage is an emotion that's closely related to the primal instincts one needs in order to survive. In instances of fight-or-flight response, rage would embody "fight." Love is the most pure emotion, but also "powerful and just as distorting as rage." Though these emotions are overwhelming, they are not negative if used correctly. Willpower (the emotion central to the spectrum) is the ability to maintain control over one's emotions and grow as an individual. Hope embodies a spiritual quality that emerges from that awareness, and compassion is described as an even more difficult emotion to explain that is more rare in today's society. Many characters in the DC universe have been offered a ring that matches the raw emotion they feel the most.
My question is, if you were offered a power ring, what color of the Emotional Spectrum do you think it would be, and why?
