This did need to be done but yeah this is probably gonna get spammed with haters but I still don't get why people have problems with Hal even if you think he isn't the best Green Lantern which I can understand but people just plain hate him.

Most people tend to hate him because they think he has no personality but really, he's a comic book character. He doesn't talk on his own. He doesn't do much of anything on his own. If people have a problem with his personality, they should take it up with the writers that made him that way, don't you think?

He's a hit and miss character for a lot of people imo. I like him a lot more than I used to since I started to read a lot of GL stuff. I still would really like to see a GL book that has nothing to do with any of the Earth Lanterns and just switches which GL it focuses on every few issues...

I love Hal, he's one of my top 10 favorite superheroes.

Oh I have a lot of problems with Geoff Johns' work, so it's obviously an issue with the writers who can't do anything right with the character.
 
But in the end it all boils down to the same thing, because he isn't written adequately he sucks horribly by being a cookie-cutter ken doll without any real depth as a character

i agree with you to some extent. writers are the reason hal jordan is as hated as he is. Writers had so many chances to give him substantial character development especially after Coast City's destruction. 
think if Hal had taken a Hank Pym route and worked his ass of to make himself a better GL. he could have become everything Kyle Rayner is and better. but in the end writers chose gimmicks over actual character development and though some good things came out of it such as the creation of Kyle Rayner, the bad outweighs the good

Hal uses his ring to rekindle a dying Star-Sun, enabling the planets of the system to flourish:

Hal tracks and follows a ship through Hyperspace, making a trip of 132 LIGHTYEARS in seconds.He brings the JLA in toe with him, and says that the ring can easily find it's way back despite being in a cosmic wilderness:

Hal protects himself and his friends from a SUPER NOVA, and then converts his friends to Negative Radiant energy:

Destroying a planet:

After fighting and losing to a group of GLs with superior versions of the Power Ring (NO weakness to yellow, in general more powerful) Hal simply heals himself and is back up to 100%:

Hal is awsome kyle sucks guy sucks not as much as kyle though. John is okey

#26 Posted by Cyclops4ever (40 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal is the best GL, thats why he is used in most major GL projects except for that cheesy cartoon 10 years ago that looked like shit and nobody cared about. Did anyone see justice league doom, Hal was boss in that movie. Btw John sucks, he was only made to add diversity which is lame and forced. Call me a racist if you want but I always thought is was dumb when they did that.

Kyle is awesome. Hes done amazing things and has almost always treated Hal with compassion (even during Hal's time as Parallax)

We so need Tom back. I have no idea why he hasn't become a Lantern or been in Hal's Life more.

OKay... I had to reply to this just so it'll pop up again... But don't tell my wife... She'd give me 'that look' and remind me how juvenile I am sometimes... Like that time I used black electrical tape to change a church's sign from "Free Will Baptist" to "Free Willy Baptist"... Like God has no sense of humor... But I'm rambling now...

and btw, getting back to the topic, why would anyone hate Hal Jordan?

Its usually misinformation and/or bias but there were a few times where Hal was legitimately a tool.

@Timandm: Ahhh... I see... Kind of like how I'm still pissed at Tony Stark for the way he became Doom Lite during Marvel Civil War and tried to arrest Peter Parker just for moving out of Stark Towers...

It's hard to find characters in comics (these days) that HAVEN'T been 'tools' at one point or another...

Legion

@Avenging-X-Bolt: Interesting so it was Legion...

I've asked because, this instance was referenced by the guardians, regarding Hal absorbing it's energy to battle against Legion in "The Road Back" story arc.

Thanks.
