Hal Jordan (The Greatest Green Lantern to ever live)

"You’ve always had it wrong, Sinestro. Even rookies know that a Green Lantern isn’t without fear. A Green Lantern overcomes fear. Every time they face it.”

Hal Jordan started off as a test pilot for Ferris Air before he stumbeled upon the remains of a crashed alien ship. Inside this ship was a dying Green Lantern named Abin Sur. Determined that he was the best canditate for the next ring, Abin Sur passed on the Green Lantern Ring and his battery to him before eventually perishing. Becoming the Green Lantern of Sector 2814, he was sent to Planet Oa, where he underwent training to master the ring. In due time, Hal Jordan eventually became the greatest Green Lantern.

During his time as a GL Corps Member, he had a taste of fear. Parallax, the emotional entity and embodiment of fear had infected him, triggered by the destruction of his hometown Coast City at the hands of Mongul I and Cyborg Superman. Enraged, he eventually took his anger out on the Guardians and the Corps, murdering them all, becoming Parallax. Convinced he needed to restart everything and make everything right, he began collapsing the universe and timelines together during Zero Hour, which he was soon stopped. Still having some heroism left in him, Hal sacrificed himself to start the sun again and became noticed by the Sprit of Vengeance, The Spectre. He became the spirit at first, but Parallax was still in his soul. After a conflict to seperate the two, Hal was finally reborn and soon set out to pay for his sins and take up his mantle again as the Greatest Green Lantern of them all.

There are so many tales the GL Corps that we don’t know. So many other lanterns.

I’d say kilawog, you don’t get to be the “raw recruits” trainer/drill sgt without serious skills and abilities.

Hal maybe the most creative lantern, but he was taken over by parralax in the first place. So he also has proved lacking in certain abilities as well.

Love Hal, closely followed by Kyle.

Hal created his own ring and power battery just from his Will alone. :sunglasses:

Again points for creativity. We don’t know if other lanterns are capable of that, because they’ve not been put in a position of needing to do that.

Hal is the best. :wink::sunglasses::100:

To be honest, Hal’s not my favorite Green Lantern. I liked John Stewart in Justice League, Kyle grew on me, Jessica Cruz has potential. Then, of course, there are all the non-human Lanterns like Kilowog. For some reason, the Lantern being pushed as “the greatest” is the one I personally find the least interesting.

Hal is not the most creative. Kyle is, he was a comic book artist, his constructs are beautiful.

Honestly, man if things were different in the books and Hal’s stories got permanently cancelled for some weird reason lol, I’d rep Kyle.
