Green Lantern is DC’s answer to Marvel’s giant superhero onslaught this summer. Although the Green Lantern isn’t part of any bigger story arc like Thor and Captain America are for the 2012 Avengers, Green Lantern still seems to promise action, fun, and a little romance.
Green Lantern is the story of Hal Jordan, a test pilot who inevitably inherits the Green Lantern Ring giving him the ability to bend reality and create any object or weapon from his ring. If he wants to pummel you with a 10 pound burger then all Green Lantern has to do is imagine it and it will be so. Or… he can create multiple Justin Biebers and they will all clobber you to death.
Hal, with the Ring, becomes the first human to be inducted to the Green Lanterns Corp—a society of meta-beings that pledged to be guardians of various worlds.
