Synopsis for "Rising Tide"
As a youth, Hal Jordan desires to become a jet pilot much like his of father and role model Martin Jordan. Unfortunately he witnesses his father’s death. Martin Jordan dies after his malfunctioning fighter jet crashes into the ground. Despite being haunted by his father's death, Hal nonetheless envisions himself as a pilot. But due to his reckless nature he fails to live up to his father’s reputation; however, at the outbreak of the Atlantean-Amazonian war Hal is drafted along with the private aircraft company Ferris Air, to patrol the American western coastline.
During a patrol with his wingman Carol Ferris, Hal and Carol are attacked by the Shark, an agent of Atlantis. Hal coordinates with Carol in pulling off a risky maneuver that involves getting rid of the Shark by slamming their jets into him and then quickly parachuting out of their aircraft. However, Hal is reprimanded by Hector Hammond, a private consultant of Ferris Aircraft, for destroying the expensive jets. Hal ignores Hammond's ire and instead continues his patrol in another jet. Suddenly, he sees a starship that is under attack make a crash landing. Hal lands his jet and investigates the wreckage, where he finds a weakened Abin Sur who desperately tells Hal that he needs help in saving the universe.
