"Beware my power!"
A former test pilot, Hal Jordan was chosen to join the Green Lantern Corps because of his fearless heroic nature. His power ring, which he uses to create anything he can think of, is powered by his will.
Hal’s sense of order led him to buy into the philosophy of the One Earth regime. He now believes that fear is more effective than willpower, and that belief has turned him into Yellow Lantern.
Stripped of his power ring, Sinestro offers Hal Jordan substitute power, now himself a Green Lantern. While working with Sinestro, Hal finds himself in the middle of events that could tear the universe apart.
Some time before the events of the original series, Hal saved the world from what Ollie described as a "planet-core-eating zombie moon" and decided to take him and Dinah out for drinks. Hal was reluctant, simply wanting to go home and relax after being away from the Earth for so long, which caused Dinah to tease him for not wanting to be more active, and Hal counters that he doesn't like being a third wheel. Dinah further teases him for not settling down and only having relationships that lasted a week. Hal smirks at that as they step into the bar, before reminding Ollie and Dinah that he just saved the world.
Dinah is then accosted by some bikers but easily beats them all single-handedly, and flirts with Ollie afterwards, promoting Hal to remind them, "Third wheel." To cheer his friend up, Ollie declares a toast to Hal for saving the world and the "finest third wheel a man and his girl could have."
Five years before the events of Injustice, Green Lantern assisted the rest of the Justice League in their search for Lois Lane. He subdued the Joker and Harley Quinn by swatting them with a large hand construct. He watches Metropolis become decimated by a nuclear warhead, and helps his fellow Leaguers evacuate people within the fallout zone.
He confronts an enraged Superman, and accidentally reveals the location of the Joker. Hal tries to reason with him, but is badly outmatched in speed and temporarily stripped of his ring. Hal again tries to convince his friend not to do something regretful, having his ring returned before the resolute Superman flies away.
Green Lantern is seen again alongside Princess Diana, called to reason with Aquaman bent on revenge. Wonder Woman orders him to move the endangered ships out of harms way as the League battles Aquaman's forces. Hal uses his ring to lift all of the ships out of the water before they are struck by oncoming waves, but Aquaman summons a kraken to knock him and the rest of the League out of the air.
Green Lantern struggles to save as many sailors from the kraken with his ring as possible when Superman arrives and forces Aquaman to call off the Kraken. After Aquaman's armies rise over the world at various ports and harbors, Superman orders Hal and his fellow Justice League members to lift Atlantis onto the Sahara Desert as a threat. Green Lantern keeps a force field around Atlantis to contain water around the city, until Aquaman relents.
Atlantis is returned to the ocean, but Hal expresses discomfort in such ruthless action.
During Chapter Eighteen, Green Lantern is seen aiding Superman in preventing two communcation satelites from falling onto Russia. It is also revealed he aided Shazam in Syria by creating a force field over the city while Shazam destroyed the missiles with his lightning.
Hal is next seen in Chapter Nineteen lying unconscious in a crater that was a city. Cyborg stumbles upon him before being attacked by the one who knocked him out: Black Adam.
In Chapter Twenty, Hal is seen in the Watchtower alongside Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg as they discuss the distress signal from the ruins of Metropolis. When Superman tries to leave for Metropolis to find the source of the signal, Hal quickly reminds him of how their recent actions have angered several powerful people and points out the suspicion of the signal. GL chooses to accompany Superman to Metropolis, saying his ring can protect him from the radiation.
Once in the city, Hal's ring begins to pick up the signal and the three trace it a collapsed building, directly under it. GL works with Superman and Wonder Woman to lift the building aside and after Hal sarcastically points out that a narrow tunnel is the perfect setting for a trap, is ordered by Wonder Woman to stand guard. When Clark and Diana locate the source of the signal, a large vault like bunker, Hal suggests they try other means of opening it, comparing the situation to a horror movie.
When the bunker is opened and Lex Luthor discovered alive, Green Lantern is last seen on the Watchtower and is among the many heroes shocked to learn that Luthor knew his secret identity all along.
In Chapter Twenty-One, Green Lantern is among the gathered League when they learn of Hawkgirl's kidnapping and Batman's sudden move against them, along with Hawkgirl's seeming return.
Green Lantern observes the League's arguing after Hawkgirl's return, as well as Lex Luthor's press conference proposal, but does not say anything or accompany Superman to Paris for the conference.
Hal is shocked by the Parademons invasion and further horrified when he learns the monsters are launching attacks all over the world.
Green Lantern accompanies Superman and Wonder Woman to Gotham to break up a fight between Batman's team and a cult that worships Superman.
In the annual, Hal is present on the Watchtower when Lobo rams his way through it, and Hal uses his ring to seal off the breached walls to save Cyborg and Robin's life.
In the next chapter, Hal is present among the gathered Justice League as Luthor is wrapping up his presentation on the completed enhancement pill. Hal is incredulous after Luthor suggests they draw up a list of candidates they can trust to be given the supplements, thinking Luthor and Superman want to build an army, though Lex assures him it will only be a peace-keeping force, something Lantern should fully understand.
In Chapter Twenty-Nine, Hal joins Superman, Wonder Woman and Flash as they head to the Batcave to negotiate the release of Hawkgirl after her week long capture and replacement by Martian Manhunter. Though Superman insists it's just a conversation, Hal is quick to bring up how many 'big guns' they're bringing for just a conversation.
Once at the cave's waterfall entrance, Hal is silent as he watches Batman and Wonder Woman converse, but when Flash attempts to stop 'Bruce' from heading back into the cave, he suddenly takes to the skies above and Hal realizes it is Martian Manhunter in his place and follows after him with Wonder Woman and Superman.
In the cloudy skies above Manhunter vanishes. Hal attempts to locate him with his ring, but is taken out by a single blow from the invisible Martian, plummeting into the seas below.
Hal's last appearance in the original series is in the last chapter along with the rest of the Justice League as they stand before the United Nations with Superman unveiling his new army.
Hal is present in the first chapter of Year Two at Ollie's funeral, mourning his departed best friend along with a large gathering of other superheroes. After the other mourners leave, Hal attempts to speak to Dinah, trying to convince her that Superman is bettering the world and that Ollie's death was an accident, but Dinah refuses to hear him out. Hal leaves after this.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Green Lantern was first seen fighting Sinestro above Metropolis, amidst other heroes and villains in battle. When attempting to stop a nuke from destroying the city, Hal and a few other heroes were transported to a different version of Gotham. Not knowing whether they were sent to a distant future or an alternate timeline, Hal decided to search for the nearest Power Battery to recharge his ring, which turned out to be Ferris Aircraft, Coast City.
As he was searching for the Power Battery, he overheard alternate versions of Cyborg and Raven torturing their version of Deathstroke, offering amnesty from the "High Councilor" (which he literally spits on) and at that point Green Lantern steps in. Cyborg is confused, saying that he "green again", but Raven on the other hand knows immediately that he is not THEIR Hal Jordan. After fighting and defeating them, Green Lantern frees the alternate Deathstroke and after getting nowhere with gaining insight into what happened to that world and losing Deathstroke, he recharged his ring and returned to Gotham to answer Wonder Woman's distress call.
He arrives just in time to save Green Arrow from Sinestro's attacks and finds out that that his counterpart joined his side, after defeating Regime Sinestro, he meets his counterpart who is a Sinestro Corpsman known as Yellow Lantern, after an argument, Green Lantern defeated his counterpart, he then escaped with Wonder Woman and Green Arrow, only to meet with the leader of the Insurgency - the alternate Batman.
Later on he met up with the others at the headquarters of the Insurgency and after the alternate Ares sent Aquaman to them, they found out why they were there - Insurgency Batman needs their help to retrieve a Kryptonite Weapon to incapacitate High Councilor Superman. He and the others travel to the abandoned Arkham Asylum to answer the alternate Harley Quinn's distress call (finding out that their Joker and Batman were taken to that world by accident)
After locking the Joker up, they travelled to Wayne Manor (force-fielded to prevent access since Batman's identity as Bruce Wayne was exposed) and while Insurgency Batman and Aquaman fired up the backup generator, Green Lantern joined Green Arrow and Wonder Woman in securing the entrance to the Batcave, he was knocked out by one of Killer Frost's attacks, but later on in the fight he woke up to save Green Arrow from an attack from the rear from Solomon Grundy, he flew the zombie away and left him in orbit (which would have no effect on him as he' already dead) and then proceeded to descend into the Batcave.
Once they arrived, he found out what Insurgency Batman brought them there for, he needed the DNA of Superman's closest allies to access the Kryptonite Laser as his Green Arrow was long dead and the Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Yellow Lantern are supporters of Superman's regime. Green Lantern used his ring to cut at the rockface where the weapon was stored (which were lined with a lead polymer to prevent Superman from finding it) once they had the weapon, Black Adam and Regime Wonder Woman broke in and after Green Arrow defeated both, they returned to the Insurgency.
After bringing their Cyborg to them, they recieved a news report from Regime Superman that their Batman is about to be executed, they know it's a trap, yet they proceed with breaking him out. While Cyborg and Insurgency Deathstroke take over the Watchtower, he joins the others in distracting the Regime's forces, battling Yellow Lantern and distracting Regime Superman by attempting to trap him in a cage construct, this fails as his will is too strong for it to contain him, his arms are almost broken by the High Councilor, when he releases him after seeing Green Arrow and the two Batmen below.
After Lex Luthor was murdered by Regime Superman, Green Lantern fights the Regime's forces to stop the High Councilor's plan to level Gotham and Metropolis. Meanwhile, Yellow Lantern, Shazam and the Flash return to Superman, where they overhear Superman talking about leveling Metropolis and Gotham, and then attack the prime universe. Shazam opposed this, but was killed when Superman used his heat vision to burn through his eyes all the way through the skull. After Solomon Grundy took Shazam's body to be buried, the Flash admits that he had made a mistake and quits the Regime. Yellow Lantern, however, stops him, knowing the penalty for leaving Superman. Flash has no choice but to fight his friend, knocking him unconscious, and rushes off to the Insurgency to warn them of Superman's plan.
Yellow Lantern is later seen fighting alongside the rest of the Regime, but is distracted by visiting Superman, as well as his defeat of Black Adam. He witnesses Sinestro's attempt at defeating the Man of Steel, but does nothing to help his fellow corpsman as Superman subdues him and removes his ring. Superman gives Hal the chance to do what he knew to be the right thing, allowing him to remove his ring of his own free will.
At the epilogue, Green Lantern brings his counterpart and Sinestro to the Guardians as punishment for their actions.

Beware My Power: Green Lantern teleports the player/opponent to the Green Lantern homeworld of Oa before the Guardians of the Universe. First, he proceeds to smash the player/opponent with a hammer, He then proceeds to crash two touring coach buses into the opponent/player, then fires a swarm of jets and missiles into the opponent/player before teleporting him/her back to the stage. Yellow Lantern's variant is similar, except the constructs are yellow and he teleports the opponent/player to the Yelllow Lantern homeworld of Qward.
EndingMere days after returning to his Earth, Green Lantern, in an event mirroring his ascension to the Corps, witnessed the crash landing of an alien ship. Investigating the wreckage, he encountered the pilot, who claimed to be Abin Sur. But this Abin Sur wore no power ring, and referred to him in halting breaths as The Almighty One. Green Lantern tried to convince the alien of their past: That Abin Sur had named Hal Jordan his successor as the Green Lantern of Sector 2814. But the alien died from his wounds before Green Lantern could learn more of him. Lantern left immediately for Oa. The Guardians were his only hope of solving this mystery.

- There is a strange phenomenon involving Green Lantern in the Injustice prequel comic. Hal Jordan is clearly Green Lantern in several panels until Superman takes away the GL's ring in Issue 4, appearing to be Kyle Rayner in a hoodie. Hal is even given Kyle's black hair in most panels. This is likely the artist's mistake. This phenomenon has seemingly been resolved with Kyle's appearance in Year Two, with Hal now looking like himself.
