Green Lantern Hal Jordan is # 7 on IGN's Top 100 Heroes List
No man better exemplifies the Green Lantern mantra of “No Fear” than Hal “Highball” Jordan. Let’s just address the elephant in the room first: Hal’s been through some pretty dark times. He’s responsible for nearly decimating the entire Green Lantern Corps while possessed by Parallax. But since that event - and the subsequent redemption attempt during “Final Night” where he died trying to save Earth - Hal has been resurrected and once again represents the model Green Lantern in an intergalactic police force that’s 7200-plus strong.
Hal’s also one of the only DC heroes that doesn’t put up with Batman’s “my way or the high way” crap. Everyone else would cower in fear with piss running down their leg if Batman got up in their face. Not Hal. Truly, Jordan is a man without fear, making him the perfect Green Lantern.*
