Synopsis for "Earth's First Green Lantern!"
This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 2) #16.
As Hal recharges his ring and changes back into his civilian guise, Pieface has some questions regarding about the Green Lantern that he succeeded: Abin Sur. Like why he never wore a mask and why he flew in a spaceship when Hal found him instead of using his power ring to fly like the other Green Lanterns. Hal tells Pieface that shortly after he became the Green Lantern, he asked his power ring the same questions, and it recounted Abin Sur's last adventure prior to crashing on Earth:
Abin Sur was inspecting the planet Athmoora which has been perpetually stuck in a neo-medieval stage instead of being in an atomic age. Probing one of the inhabitants' minds he learns that the energy beings known as the Larifars have stunted their progress by robbing them of their intelligence.
Abin then traveled to the Larifar home planet and imprisoned the entire race, except for Balzona, who was on another planet waiting for his fellows to arrive and drain the intelligence of another planet. When Balzona learns of his races fate, he goes after Abin Sur and terrorizes his home planet. Abin agrees to free the other Larifars, however convinces Balzona that his power ring wouldn't have the power to bring them to that location in time. Boarding a shuttle, Abin Sur uses the long space flight to trick Balzona is distracted by flying near Sirus's green radiation belt, Abin Sur is able to recharge his power ring without Balzona noticing. Abin then uses his power ring to imprison Balzona and send him to join his fellow Larifars. During the flight home however, Abin was struck by a yellow radiation belt negating his power ring long enough to be unable to prevent his shuttle from crashing on Earth -- and his destined meeting with Hal Jordan.
Finishing his story, Hal gives Pieface the title in which he'll call the story once he writes it down in his case book "Earth's First Green Lantern."
