Does ANYONE think that Hal Jordan could pick up an island?

Does ANYONE think that Hal Jordan just REGULAR Hal Jordan WITHOUT being possessed by an entity. Would be able to pick up an ISLAND?! An ISLAND thats bigger than HAWAII?! PLEASE i NEED other peoples opinions on this. He CAN use his ring. But under no circumstances do i think he could pick up a whole island. Just not possible for Hal Jordan or most Green Lanterns at that.

Well a Green Lantern Ring is supposed to be able to do anything it's user can imagine.

Hal? Easily. He has completely mastered all aspects of the ring that he is aware of.

Islands are connected to the planet, they don't just float in the ocean. So how far down are we talking about?

Yes he can. If John Stewart can destroy a planet, Hal Jordan can rip apart a piece of one.

With enough willpower.

No man destroying a planet is way easier than lifting part of one. Like you dont need strength to throw a grenade you know? But you need strength to lift something. But of course with enough will power. Thats the whole basis of his powers. The point being under NORMAL circumstances he could NOT be able to lift hawaii. Maybe destroy it cuz you know itd be easier.

I think he lifted up a canyon in one comic.

Even if he can't lift it; if the ring can create anything.... Create a potion that gives him enough strength to lift it. Problem solved.

Yes he could... if the island wasnt attached to the Earth. The ring allows him to tank supernovae explosions, so it certainly has enough power to lift an island. It's just a matter of willpower at that point, which Hal has enough of.

My thoughts exactly. The power of the ring is only limited by the will of its user (unless your'e Sinestro, heh).

While what you are saying is a good point, the two examples, destroying a planet and lifting a piece of it, go together. To destroy not only a planet, but a living and powerful planet, takes immense power. Take that power and you could easily life a very small portion of an entire planet.

Doesn't quite work like that. I could see that happening with 60's Hal Jordan, but the way the ring works has changed since than.
