In the center universe lies the planet Oa, home to the Guardians of the Universe and their agents the Green Lantern Corps. Chosen from across the universe from those who live without fear, the Green Lanterns have been gifted with rings of power capable of creating nearly anything they can imagine and tasked with bringing order to a universe always on the verge of destruction.
Following the death of Green Lantern Abin Sur, the ring chose its own successor in American test pilot Hal Jordan who would become both the most famous and most infamous Green Lantern of them all. Although he worked solo in the sixties, in the seventies he was teamed with Green Arrow as hard-traveling heroes searching for the spirit of America. In the eighties, he formed closer ties with the Green Lantern Corps before his downfall. Although he was replaced for a time, Hal Jordan has recently been reborn to face greater threats than ever including the Sinestro Corps War and the fabled Blackest Night. Although recently stripped of his role as Green Lantern, he continues to fearlessly defend our universe.
