Hal tells Carol about Green Lantern | Green Lantern Extended cut
The Green Lantern
The story is about an alien and a human who met each other by accident. The alien was looking for a man with a pure heart to replace him. He needs to put the ring on the lantern to join the corps of powerful beings. Test pilot Hal Jordan is the first-ever human Green Lantern. From a novelty to one of the most legendary Lanterns to ever wield a power ring. The scene is realistic when he tells a childhood love interest of his real identity. Not a green mask can hide what one knows very well since younger years.
Self-Development of a Hero
Hal Jordan’s life changes twice by crashing aircraft. The first time is when he witnesses the death of his father, pilot Martin Jordan. The second is when a summon directs him to check in spaceship wreckage. It belongs to an alien. His name is Abin Sur. The dying Abin explains that he is a member of the Green Lantern Corps. It is an organization of beings from across the cosmos with power rings that get their power from the green energy of all willpower in the universe. Upon his death, Abin entrusts his ring and duties as the Green Lantern of Earth’s space sector to Hal Jordan.
A Pure Heart Overcomes Challenges
Hal’s life as a Green Lantern is not easy. He fights not only enemies but often friends, colleagues, and loved ones. But despite the strain, his Green Lantern identity has put on his life. Hal is an honest man who can operate without fear. He is always willing to protect those in need -whether alone, with the Corps or alongside the Justice League and Earth’s other Super Heroes. Hal swears the oath of every Green Lantern-that no evil will escape his sight.
