Dude, that's SO harsh, lol 
 
so in that case, Hal Jordan's best friend must be:
Incoming!!
Parallax, cuz they both share a deep, personal bond with each other  ;)

I'd say Hal.  Jay was more of a mentor / father figure.  Wally's more of a protege / son.  Hal had TWO really close friends, Barry and Oliver.  I never really saw Barry and Ralph as all that close.  The only other real possibility would be Ray Palmer, but I think Hal and Barry were closer.

I also agree to this.

Hal Jordan

I would actually say Ralph Dibny. Hal's best friend is Green Arrow, and Atom's best friend is Hawkman.

#19 Posted by Mbecks14 (2068 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal and Ralph were really close with Barry. Hal was buds with Ollie, but they also bicker. Hal and Barry work better together, and Elongated man teamed with barry often. I feel like Barry also had a connection with Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm but i can't remember if that's true.

Iris

I feel like Ollie and Hal are closer than Barry and Hal.  Personally, I always feel like Iris is his best friend.  She's the one he confides in and the one he seems to spend the most time with.

#23 Posted by Zachattack1239 (110 posts) - - Show Bio

Barry and Bruce Wayne are pretty close

Although Hal and Ollie are considered best friends, thats really only because they co-starred together for so long. Ollie sucks and Hal knows it. Barry cares about Hal as a friend so much and it's shown many times in the comics while Ollie just sits back and complains like a bitch. I'd say Barry and Hal are best friends, bros, one might say. But Also Iris is a good choice.

#33 Edited by MartianManhunterIsBetterThanCyborg (2243 posts) - - Show Bio

Either Hal Jordan or Ralph Dibny.

#34 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (13174 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal's admitted to liking Barry more. plus he and Ollie spent most of their time fighting and fell out with each other in the 80's. they did reconcile but they were never as close as they used to be.

I think it's Hal especially after new 52 they bros for life. I mean Hal and Oliver are bestys but Hal and Flash is tight. Plus Barry ain't to fond of Oliver cause he thinks he's a douche.

I like their new dynamic in the new 52 especially the good cop bad cop bit

So what's the new relationship of New52 Hal and Ollie? I don't see them being besties from the books I've read.

@ssejllenrad: Pre 52: knew each other and were both on a frendly bases. New 52:????

Yeah Pre 52 had them like bros (perhaps peaking with Zero Hour) but I don't see any interaction between the two in New 52 aside from the JL bits.

Hal thinks he's a loser b-list Batman wannabe in the new 52

Hal Jordan! Him and Barry are Super Friends!

This is what happened when Barry came back from the dead. Both Hal and Black Canary came to Barry!

I don't think he interacted with Firestorm that much. His other friends outside of Hal and Ralph were Atom, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Black Canary and Zatanna (who he hit on).

Pre 52 I would say Iris/Hal. But now its definitely Hal. Makes me think he might appear in TV show; one could dream.
