Someone clue me in about this guy. Is he cool or is he a waste of a superhero like Daredevil?
Wont post the whole thing, but heres the start of him:
That Showcase issue told the story of test pilot Hal Jordan, who suddenly found himself teleported to a UFO crash site, where he was given a new mission in life. A dying alien had one last duty to perform — he must pass his ring of power, entrusted to him by the Guardians of the Universe, on to a worthy recipient; and Hal, because he was a good man and had been born without fear, was chosen. The ring, if charged daily by the power battery that came with it, was capable of doing almost anything, limited only by its user's imagination and an inability to affect anything colored yellow. Hal's first use of the ring was to create a duplicate of the alien's costume — a sleek, stylish number altogether easier on the eyes than that of the 1940s GL — and to give the alien's body a decent burial. Then, naming himself after the power battery's appearance — Green Lantern — he began his career as a superhero.
