DC Animated Universe

Colonel Hal Jordan was an Air Force pilot and a Green Lantern at an unspecified point.



When Colonel Jordan was stationed at Broome Lake Air Force Base, his plane was heavily damaged during a battle between Sinestro and Kyle Rayner.[1]

Alternate Timeline[]

During one of the fluctuations in the unstable alternate timeline created by Chronos in the 2050s, Hal Jordan briefly replaced John Stewart, with full knowledge of all events up to that point. Jordan appealed to Enid Clinton to help find her husband and fix the timeline. His plea worked and Enid directed the Justice League and JLU to her husband's location. The timeline fluctuated once again and Stewart was restored. The League successfully thwarted Chronos and restored the space-time continuum, though only Stewart and Batman retained knowledge of the time travel mission. However, since Stewart didn't acknowledge or seem to realize that he had been briefly replaced, it appeared that only Batman knew of the Green Lantern named Hal Jordan.[2]

Powers and abilities[]

As a Green Lantern, Hal Jordan wielded a Green Lantern power ring. He also possessed military training and was a certified pilot.

Background information[]

  • Hal Jordan, test pilot and ring-bearer of Sector 2814, was DC Comics' Silver Age Green Lantern, first appearing in 1959, and one of the co-founders of the Justice League of America in 1960.
  • During the production of the Superman: The Animated Series episode "In Brightest Day...", Hal Jordan had been dead in the comics, so Kyle Rayner was used as the introductory Green Lantern in the DCAU. The origin of Rayner in the DCAU is a composite version of Hal Jordan's DC Comics origin.
  • Per the opinion of Dwayne McDuffie, Hal Jordan never became a Green Lantern in the DCAU (appearing only in an alternate timeline).[3]
  • Hal is the only Green Lantern in the DCAU to wear the classic uniform of the comics.
