Hal Jordan.

#5 Posted by ComicCrazy (1537 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal Jordan is no doubt my favorite but then its Alan Scott and then its Kyle Rayner.

Hal Jordan is the best Green Lantern. He has the willpower and the skill that all the others wish they could have. But still, Kyle Rayner is my favorite, just because he is cooler and I followed his book from the beginning (GL v3 #48) to the end (GL v3 #181), and the Ion Maxi-Series afterwards.

Definately Guy Gardner. He is just plain 100% badass. And a pimp. (or he likes to think he is)


*In Fonzie voice* Aaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeee

In what way is Hal Jordan the best Green Lantern? 
 
He's not the most powerful.  He's not the most noble.  He's not the wisest or the most cunning and he's certainly not the most interesting.
#21 Posted by robbiesol (474 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he is the most powerful (with the exception of Ion).    It has been stated a few times that he may have the strongest will in the Universe, which of course fuels the ring.   He was powerful enough to nearly destroy the entire GL Corps and the Guardians.   
  
He's fearless, even by Green Lantern standards.  He's a kind of gritty man's man, an homage to a time before guys wore black fingernail polish, eye liner, and skinny jeans.  He doesn't give a crap about sissy antics and contemplation, he's a man of action.  I like that.   
 
If Hal could have a final meal I guarentee you it would be a freaking still bleeding slab of steak and mashed potatoes with a beer.  Maybe a slice of sweet ass American apple pie for dessert. 
 
I might shed a single tear.

Count me as part of the Guy Gardner team. I can't explain it. There's just something really awesome about a guy who moons Batman before he goes off planet. That's an automatic win.

Absolutely.  It was a decent issue.  Mogo doesn't show up very often. 
 
Its not half as good of a story as Mogo Doesn't Socialize, which is why I corrected you.

Hal is weaker than dozens of lanterns, including Kilowog and Mogo.  If his will is so strong, why did he give in to Parallax?  Why has he changed sides with every ring that has fallen on his finger?  
 
Hal wasn't powerful enough to destroy the Corp.  Parallax was.  Without the power boost, Hal is just an above average ring slinger who is always in the right place at the right time because the book is about him.

Sodam Yat. They said in the comic that he would be the most powerfull lantern ever.

Like I said already, Sodam Yat was the best lantern ever. They said that in the comic.

Hal Jordan

#38 Posted by The Man of Tomorrow (403 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal Jordan has my vote.
 
@Zoom:
 Where did you read that dozens of lanterns are more powerful than Jordan? All they talk about is how Jordan is the greatest lantern.

#43 Posted by brc2000 (1679 posts) - - Show Bio

Gardener definitely (OP asks for favorite, despite the title saying "best"). 
 
Also Kyle Rayner fans usually come off as more fanboyish than Hal Jordan ones. Just sayin'

I thought so too.... Kyle actually does interesting stuff, Hal is just known as the greatest...... But I've never seen why...........
#50 Posted by Blacklightning13 (916 posts) - - Show Bio

Not including the original GL i say this is the order.
1.Hal Jordan he is the best GL he has been called it and i think it is true due to his massive willpower, military training and experience.
2.John Stewart he and Kyle are very close i say i give it to John because he is an architect so he can build the most complex things, he has the will power to match kyle at least and finally experience.
3.Kyle Rayner I say he is here because he is very good i think once he has as much experience as the others he will be the best he will be able to beat them at will power and experience. There architecture and military training will be insignificant advantages after that.
4.Guy Gardner he beats Kyle at experience and very close to John in willpower but not quite enough to bring him any higher.
Thats my list.
