In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power, Green Lantern's light!
~ Hal Jordan
Listen, we've all come through a lot in our different ways. Some of us had a comparatively easy time of it -- some of us didn't. But we got here seven of us now -- to protect this little planet -- and not only because it's right and just to protect life anywhere -- but because the future of the now-unified universe is evolving here now! We don't know if the Guardians are ever coming back, but we have their promise that beings like them, and the female Zamarons, will arise on Earth. That will probably be long after we're all gone... but like, perhaps, the Knights of our earlier days, I swear to give everything this ring and I have to keep alive in my time -- so that life in future days may achieve the grandeur we have been privileged to know in the Guardians of the Universe!
~ Hal Jordan

Harold "Hal" Jordan is a superhero from DC Comics known as the Green Lantern. He is the first human to join the Green Lantern Corps as well as a founding member of the Justice League. He is the second to adopt the Green Lantern moniker. He was created in the Silver Age of Comic Books, and made his first appearance in Showcase #22 to replace Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern.

He was ranked number seven on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes in 2011.

Biography

Hal was a California test pilot who was summoned to the site where Green Lantern Abin Sur had crashed. Abin bequeathed his ring and power battery to Jordan before dying. Training under both Kilowog and Sinestro, Jordan went on to become a famed hero on Earth and beyond, helped found the Justice League of America, and rose to the top of the Green Lantern Corps. Sinestro, his traitorous former mentor, became his arch nemesis.

Despite common belief, Hal Jordan was not the first human being ever recruited into the Green Lantern Corps. Earth's original Green Lantern originated in China, and was recruited in 814 B.C. Coincidentally, in Post-Crisis continuity, Alan Scott wielded this unnamed Chinese man's ring.

Hal's halcyon days ended when the fear entity Parallax, trapped within the Central Power Battery, reached out its psychic tendrils to taint his mind. The destruction of his native Coast City at the hands of Mongul and Cyborg-Superman was enough to push him over the edge—Jordan rushed to Oa, killed every Lantern that got in his way, and entered the Central Power Battery to gain the power necessary to rebuild Coast City, but was instead possessed by Parallax. Killing all the Guardians save one, Jordan/Parallax went on a rampage across the universe. Jordan's own nobility shone through, however, when Earth's Sun was being devoured by a Sun-Eater, and he gave his life to save his homeworld.

After his death, Jordan's soul was offered a chance at redemption: he was bound to the near-omnipotent Spectre, the Spirit of Vengeance. Jordan tried to change the Spectre's mission from vengeance to redemption, but to no avail: Parallax still remained bound to his soul, and the Eldritch Abomination tried to steal the Spectre's power for itself. But Jordan's successor, Kyle Rayner—with the help of all his surviving friends from the Corps and the League—defeated the monstrosity and restored Jordan to life. Now Hal Jordan is a Green Lantern once more, protecting Space Sector 2814 while seeking atonement for his actions under Parallax's influence.

After Krona's attempt to take over the Corps using the enslaved emotional entities, Hal managed to kill him. However, the Guardians were deeply freaked out (though they won't admit it) by the fact that he overcame his ring's restrictions against killing Guardians, deeming him as a dangerous renegade and ejecting him from the Corps. However, Sinestro of all people recruited his help, making a replica power ring for him to use. After an uneasy alliance, and a brief case of deadness, Hal and Sinestro managed to stop the Guardians' scheme. Though Hal found himself briefly placed in charge of the Green Lantern Corps, currently he serves in the Honor Guard.

This is what I've been waiting -- praying for. A chance to make it up to you -- all of you. I can't bring you back -- but I can answer for my sins.
