Hal Jordan—Green Lantern

As it happens, I've been throwing a lot of super heroes together recently, so I figured I'd throw this one up to keep the content flowing. Not to mention that the DC Comics universe only has so many good movies, and we might as well take a look at one of the few force control supers out there. This is based on the 2011 movie.

After his father's death in a terrible accident, Hal Jordan followed in his father's footsteps and becoming an accomplished and highly-talented pilot. An irresponsible ladies man by night, Hal was known for having an incredible (and oftentimes very irritating) force of will. This is why the ring chose him as Earth's newest protector: the Green Lantern.

Intelligent, strong, and brave, Hal's ring grants him incredible powers of flight and incredible resilience, but what really powers him is the ring's capacity to generate nearly anything his mind can dream up. From swords to guns to slingshots to race cars, Hal can construct them and use them as he wishes. The ring also grants him some other powers, including a working knowledge of the Lantern Corps and galactic politics, a universal translator, alerts him when he is needed.

Without the ring, Hal is simply a very strong willed individual; it really wouldn't be a good idea for the average tangle with him, even powerless.

There isn't much more I can say for him, which is the benefit of working off of a one-off movie character: just go watch the movie and you'll see most of this in action. Leave questions, comments, and lantern-love below.
