Hal Jordan is the Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814.
Red Lantern War
Hal was flying an experimental jet for his boss Carol Ferris when an earthquake hits Coast City. The earthquake destroys a bridge nearby, endangering a train, so Hal sets the jet in auto-pilot and activates his Green Lantern Ring. Hal creates a new bridge and saves the train; unfortunately, the jet was flying crashes.
Returning to Ferris Aircraft, Hal talks to an angry Carol, saying that the earthquake damaged his flying instruments. Calming her down, Hal invites Carol to dinner, to which she reluctantly accepts. Suddenly, Hal's ring recieves a transmission from Appa Ali Apsa, saying that Hal must report to Oa. Hal leaves Ferris Aircraft, saying that he has to pick the jet's hard drive before one of her competitors does.
Hal arrives at Oa, meeting up with Kilowog and Salaak, who tell Hal the Guardians are expecting him. The three enter the Guardians's chamber, where the Guardians discuss Hal's behavior during a mission in which he physically assaulted an ambassador for his criminal activities. Suddenly, a Green Lantern ring falls in the middle of the chamber, and Hal realizes there must be a dead Lantern out there.
Salaak deduces the ring belonged to M'Ten, a Green Lantern from Frontier Space. The Guardians explain that Frontier Space is outside their normal jurisdiction, so they dispatch Green Lanterns there. These Lanterns recieve limited training from their ring, due to the large distance between Frontier Space and Oa. Also, many more Lanterns in Frontier Space are being killed by an unknown assailant. Hal suggests finding whoever is responsible for the killings and stopping them, but Appa Ali Apsa dismisses this course of action, as it takes eighteen months to reach Frontier Space. Ganthet suggests they all take a break so that they can formulate a new plan.
Instead of going to the dining hall, Ganthet takes Hal and Kilowog to a hangar containing the Interceptor, a prototype starship. Ganthet tells them that it is the fastest starship ever created, it is powered by the green light of willpower, and contains an artificial intelligence. Hal wants to test it out, but Kilowog stops him, and Ganthet says that use of the Interceptor can only be authorized by the full approval of the Guardians. When Hal asks why did he bring them to the ship, Ganthet merely says that he only took the "scenic route."
Later, Hal sneaks into the Interceptor, and Kilowog finds him. Instead of stopping him, Kilowog decides to go with Hal. Entering the Interceptor, Hal and Kilowog meet the ship's artificial inteligence, which Hal names Aya. Then, Hal tells Aya they play a game called joyride, giving Aya the coordinates to Frontier Space. The Interceptor then lifts off and leaves the hangar.
Suddenly, the Guardians try to stop the Interceptor from leaving Oa. Hal tells Aya to initiate ultra-warp, but Aya replies that she requires to bypass several security protocols. Hal convinces Aya to ignore the protocols, saying that a Green Lantern's life is in danger. Accepting Hal's reasons, Aya initiates ultrawarp, and the Interceptor leaves Oa.
The Interceptor falls through an unstable ultra-warp conduit. Switching to manual control, Hal manages to steer the ship and the Interceptor safely reaches Frontier Space. Aya picks up a distress signal from a nearby Power Ring, deducing that the Green Lantern in question is in trouble. Hal pilots the ship towards the distress signal, saying that they are now on a rescue mission.
The Interceptor reaches a rocky planet, where Green Lantern Shyir Rev is being attacked by Red Lanterns Razer and Zilius Zox. Hal and Kilowog save Rev, but Hal's ring loses power, forcing Kilowog to defend Rev alone. Hal reaches the Interceptor's engine, a massive Green Power Battery, and recharges his ring. Unleashing a massive energy blast, Hal throws Razer and Zox away from the planet, but the effort causes him to pass out.
Later, Hal awakens inside the Interceptor, being helped by Kilowog. Rev is also resting from the battle. Kilowog tells Hal that he won't be on time for his date with Carol, but Hal replies that their duty is to stop the Red Lanterns no matter what or how long it takes.
After the battle, Hal, Kilowog and Rev contact Guardians Ganthet, Appa Ali Apsa and Sayd. Appa Ali Apsa accuses Hal of treason, but Hal relays the Guardians the threat of the Red Lanterns. Although the Guardians are skeptical, Kilowog confirms Hal's story. Suddenly, the Interceptor is attacked by a Red Lantern probe, forcing Hal to end the transmission.
Hal takes manual control of the Interceptor and destroys the probe, but not before the probe heavily damages the Interceptor's ultra-warp coil. Aya estimates that reparation of the ultra-warp coil will take at least nine months, so Hal decides that they will remain on Frontier Space to fight the Red Lanterns. Seeing that Rev is injured, Hal suggests taking him to the nearest inhabitable world, and Rev tells him to go to his home colony.
Arriving at the colony, Biara, Rev's wife, heals his injury. Aya detects a homing beacon on the ship, and Hal smashes it. Then, the Red Lantern flagship descends from the sky and drops a fortress to the ground. The fortress emits a large hologram of Atrocitus, leader of the Red Lantern Corps. Atrocitus proclaims that the colony has one solar hour to deliver the Green Lanterns to him, threatening to destroy the planet with a bomb, which the Red Lanterns call a Liberator.
Rev suggests they surrender, but Hal and Kilowog refuse, saying the Red Lanterns will destroy the planet anyway. Hal suggests attacking the Red Lantern fortress, and Biala formulates a plan.
Hal goads Atrocitus and Zox into attacking him while Kilowog and Rev infiltrate the fortress. Although Hal takes Zox fairly quickly, Atrocitus defeats him in combat but is forced to retreat when the bomb goes off. Hal chases them, but the Red Lanterns escape in their ship and the planet is destroyed in a massive explosion.
Scouring the planet's remains for survivors, Hal is attacked by Razer. After a short battle, Hal defeats Razer but spares his life, taking his ring instead. Then, Kilowog and Aya appear, having saved the colony's population. The Green Lanterns take the colonists to a new world, which is named after Rev.
Afterwards, Hal and Kilowog resume their journey, debating what to do with Razer, their new prisoner.
Hal and Kilowog interrogate Razer about the Red Lanterns. When Kilowog begins to physically assault Razer, Hal takes over the interrogation. Hal tells Razer that he should help them stop the Red Lanterns, as they left him to his fate. Razer replies that while he hates the Red Lanterns, he still hates the Green Lanterns, saying he only has more people to hate.
After the interrogation ends, Hal and Kilowog contact the Guardians. Appa is still wary of Hal's recent actions, but Ganthet calms him down, saying that Hal and Kilowog are the Corps' only line of defense in Frontier Space, and Hal is too far away to be punished. Sayd agrees with Ganthet, and the Guardians task Hal and Kilowog with gathering intelligence on the Red Lanterns and stopping them in any way they can. When Hal asks the Guardians what to do about Razer, Appa replies that he should imprisoned. Aya tells Hal and Kilowog that there is a nearby facility that can be used to hold Razer.
The Interceptor reaches a prison complex hidden in an asteroid. There, Hal and Kilowog deliver Razer to Warden Myglom of the Spider Guild. Myglom expresses confidence that their rehabilitation program will work on Razer, and Kilowog is pleased, but Hal is doubtful.
As the Interceptor leaves the prison, Hal and Kilowog discover a mysterious creature embedded on the ship's hull. Capturing the intruder, they place it in the ship's cell. The creature identifies itself as Goggan, an escapee from the Spider Guild's prison. Goggan tells them that the prison applies torture on criminals until they are driven insane. Knowing that Razer is in trouble, Hal wants to return to the prison, but Kilowog and Aya are reluctant, saying that criminals deserve to be tortured.. Hal answers that criminals deserve justice, even punishment, but never torture. When Kilowog asks how will they get in without getting seen, Hal replies that they will break into prison.
Hal and Kilowog infiltrate the prison and reach one of the cells, confirming Goggan's claims of torture. Suddenly, they are attacked by prison guards. Their rings suddenly malfunction and the guards capture them. Afterwards, Hal and Kilowog are placed in cocoons and met by Myglom, who explains that the Spider Guild recently found a Yellow Element that nullifies a Green Lantern Ring. Then, Hal and Kilowog are outfitted with special collars designed to make them relive their worst moments over and over again. Myglom also says that they will eat them.
Moments later, Myglom deactivates the collars, saying that they will eat their victims fresh. Fortunately, Aya, having projected her consciousness outside the Interceptor, frees Razer from his cell. Razer retrieves his Red Lantern ring and saves Hal and Kilowog, and the three defeat Myglom and the guards. After the battle, Razer hands his ring over to Hal.
Later, Myglom and the guards are imprisoned in their own cells, and Hal contacts the Guardians about what happened. The Guardians dispatch a new warden, who would arrive at the prison in eighteen months, and in the meantime, Hal chooses Goggan as the temporary warden. Then, Hal gives Razer his Red Lantern ring and the three continue their journey.
Afterwards, Hal and company recieve a distress signal from Captain Goray. Addressing the signal, the Interceptor travels to Goray's ship, which slowly being pulled towards a pinhole, a small black hole. Hal, Kilowog and Razer enter Goray's ship, and Goray informs them that he was transporting a small colony of endangered alien insects to a new world. As ship is dragged towards the pinhole, Kilowog tries to keep the ship from falling into it while Hal and Razer try to repair one of the ship's damaged engines. Fortunately, Aya transfers her consciousness to small robots and repairs the engine. Hal takes the ship's helm and slingshots around the pinhole, getting the ship to safety. Goray continues his mission, and Aya constructs a robot body so that she can provide better assistance to Hal and the team.
Later, the Interceptor travels to Betrassus and Hal hopes that he can get help from the planet's Green Lantern in the war against the Red Lanters. Hal and Kilowog discover that Iolande, Queen of Betrassus, is the prize in a duel between Warlord Kothak and Dulac, Betrassus' Green Lantern. According to Betrassus's laws, the queen cannot rule unless she marries. When the time for the duel comes, however, Dulac does not show up, so Hal decides to take his place. Iolande trains Hal in combat, as the rules forbid him from using his ring. During their time together, Hal and Iolande grow closer. Also, Hal and company discover that Dulac was murdered and his ring disappeared. The team believes that whoever murdered Dulac wanted his ring to become a Lantern, and in order to draw the murderer out, Kilowog fakes his death, creating a fake ring that will go to whoever tries to kill him. The plan works and Prince Ragnar, Iolande's brother, is revealed to be Dulac's murderer. During their struggle, Hal reveals that Dulac's ring chose Iolande as its new wielder. Iolande puts the ring on and arrests his brother. Afterwards, Hal asks Iolande to go with him so that they can fight the Red Lanterns. Iolande reluctantly declines, saying that she still has responsibilities as queen. Hal accepts and the two part ways, but not before sharing a kiss.
Aya detects that Shyir Rev's ring traveled to a distant planet, where the next Green Lantern might be located. However, an asteroid is about hit the planet. Combining their green power, Hal, Kilowog and Aya manage to slightly push the asteroid away, giving the team six hours before the asteroid collides. Landing on the planet, the team finds a group of castaways: General Zartok, Drusa and Grood. Agreeing on searching the new Lantern together, the group of separates to scout the area, with Hal going with Grood. As they look for the Lantern in the forest, Grood throws Hal from a small cliff. Suddenly, rocks begin covering Hal, but before they completely engulf him, the rocks react to his ring and let him go. Hal goes after Grood and discovers he has been turned into stone. Looking for the others, Hal finds Razer, who has found the new Lantern's ring. As they meet up with Kilowog, they discover that Zartok and Drusa have disabled Aya and hijacked the Interceptor. Suddenly, the landscape prevents the Interceptor from leaving the planet, allowing the team to capture the castaways. Discovering that the ring somehow connected to the planet, Hal throws it to the planet's core. The planet then unleashes a massive blast that destroys the asteroid. Revealing itself to be sentient, the planet introduces itself to the team as Mogo, saying that it has held a lot of prisoners captive on its surface to prevent them from causing any more trouble in the universe. Mogo accepts its new place as a Green Lantern, telling Hal to call it whenever he needs it.
The Interceptor sneaks behind the Red Lantern mothership so that the team can gather intelligence on the Red Lanterns. Razer, deeming that the Green Lanterns should attack the enemy directly rather than sneaking around, exits the Interceptor and triggers a small explosion that slightly damages the shipg. Deducing that the explosion was only meant to distract them, Hal believes that Razer is trying to assassinate Atrocitus. Hal, Kilowog and Aya infiltrate the Red Lantern mothership to try and rescue Razer. Hal disguises himself as a soldier and enters a small church where Cleric Loran explains the origins of the Red Lantern Corps. Apparently, the Guardians came to Ysmault, Atrocitus's homeworld, to establish peace and order, but their enforcers, the Manhunters, slaughtered Ysmault's population. Since then, Atrocitus has been harnessing the red energy of rage to create rings and give them to worthy people so that he can attain vengeance against the Guardians. Then, Kilowog is arrested by the Red Lantern soldiers, and to keep his cover, Hal knocks him out. Hal brings him to a chamber where Atrocitus and Zillius Zox is torturing Razer. With the help of Aya, who had hacked through the ship's computer, Hal rescues Kilowog and Razer. During their escape, Kilowog is injured while Aya is captured by Atrocitus. Hal takes Kilowog to the Interceptor while Razer saves Aya. Escaping from the Red Lanterns, Aya informs the team that she found an archive that reveals a fleet of Red Lantern warships.
Running out of supplies, Hal and Kilowog travel to a nearby planet, hoping to find more food for their journey. As they land on the planet, Hal and Kilowog go separate ways to find food. Hal uses an EBD (Edible Biomass Detector) to track food, but his ring malfunctions, forcing Hal to explore on foot. Then, Hal meets a race of jellyfish-like aliens, the Nidara. Hal befriends one of the Nidara, naming it "Norman". As the Nidara work on a mine, Hal discovers that they are mining the same yellow crystals the team found on the Spider Guild's prison. He grabs a crystal an becomes violently paranoid, until Norman takes the crystal from him. The Nidara reveal that the crystals are their food source, and therefore, they are immune to its effects. However, a nearby race of aliens are consuming the crystals, unaware of their properties. This has caused the aliens to wage war against the Nidara. Hal and the Nidara meet up with the aliens, who are being led by Kilowog. Unfortunately, Kilowog has also consumed the crystals and now he is leading them to fight the Nidara. Hal manages to break Kilowog free from the crystal's influences, while the Nidara disarm the aliens. After Hal explains the true nature of the crystals, the two races declare peace and supply the team with sugar vines they can use for food.
Later, the Interceptor is attacked by an alien creature called the Sebilung. However, two new Lanterns, the Star Sapphire Corps, help the team subdue it. The Sapphires's Queen, Aga'po, and her niece Ghia'ta invite the team to their homeworld: Zamaron. Arriving on Zamaron, Aga'po explains Hal and Kilowog that the Star Sapphires are Lanterns that harness the violet energy of love to spread love throughout the galaxy. She also says that the Zamarons and the Guardians of the Universe descended from the same species, until they split up due to their philosophical differences about emotions. The team arrives at Aga'po's palace, and Ghia'ta gives Hal a tour of the palace. Suddenly, Carol Ferris arrives at Zamaron, having been chosen to become a Star Sapphire. Hal reveals his Green Lantern identity to her, but their reunion is short-lived, as Carol attacks Ghia'ta, believing that she was seducing Hal. After a short fight, Hal kisses Carol, bringing her back to her senses. Carol willingly rejects the ring, and Hal explains the Red Lantern war to her, saying that he cannot return to Earth until the Red Lantern Corps is defeated. Understanding Hal's duties, Carol returns to Earth, but not before she gives him a kiss of good luck. Suddenly, Hal recieves a distress signal from Aya, who tells him that they are under attack by the Star Sapphires. Hal rescues Kilowog, who had been placed in stasis inside a crystal, and the two save Razer and Aya from Aga'po. As they try to escape, they are attacked by the Sebilung. Fortunately, Ghia'ta subdues it long enough for Hal and company to get to the Interceptor and escape from Zamaron.
Hal contacts Appa Ali Apsa to discuss the Red Lantern situation. Appa states that he has mobilized the Green Lanterns to mount a frontal assault against the Red Lanterns, but Hal disagrees with this course of action, as they don't know what the Red Lanterns are capable of. However, Hal has to cut off communication with Appa, as the Interceptor recieves a distress signal from Iolande, who says that the Red Lanterns have taken over Betrassus. The team returns to Betrasuss and discover that Ragnar, Iolande's brother, is now a Red Lantern and usurped the throne, while Iolande has been imprisoned. The Red Lanterns attack the team and place the Interceptor under their custody. Fortunately, Hal and company meet up with Kothak, who has been leading the resistance against the Red Lanterns. Kothak informs the team that the Red Lanterns have placed a Liberator in Betrassus' surface. Hal communicates with Ganthet and Sayd, asking them to make peace with the Red Lanterns, but Ganthet and Sayd reveal that the Manhunters indeed destroyed Atrocitus's sector. The Manhunters were the forerunners of the Green Lantern Corps, a special force that would be unburdened by emotion. Unfortunately, the Manhunters were unable to understand and interact with emotional begins, causing them to destroy entire sectors. While Hal and the team focus on the Liberator, Ganthet promises to convince the Guardians in revealing the truth about the Manhunters. Hal and Kilowog rescue Iolande while Aya and Razer retake the Interceptor. Although Hal and company assault the Liberator, the Red Lanterns overpower them. Hal calls the Guardians for help, but Appa informs him that Ganthet has been exiled from Oa. Fortunately, Ganthet remotely activates a Blue Lantern Battery on the Interceptor, giving Hal and company a power boost that enables them to defeat the Red Lanterns and launch the Liberator into outer space.
Hal and company recieves a transmission from Appa, who tells them that the Red Lanterns will try to enter Guardian space through the Lighthouse, a mysterious superstructure hidden in the Maelstrom, the asteroid belt that separates Guardian space from the Forgotten Zone. According to Appa, a Green Lantern archeologist named Taveras was sent to unlock a code that could activate the Lighthouse, but he disappeared. Appa tasks the team with destroying the Lighthouse in case the Red Lanterns arrive first. Aya also tells Hal that while she was connected to the asteroid prison's database, she discovered that a prisoner named Taveras is being held there. The Interceptor returns to the asteroid prison, and Goggan leads Hal and Kilowog to Taveras's cell. There, they find Taveras's corpse. Fortunately, before he died, Taveras left a message engraved in his torture device. The message says that to whoever wanted the code for the Lighthouse had to free Byth Rok, a Thanagarian prisoner. Hal and Kilowog enter the Thanagarian prison block, which the Thanagarians have converted into a fight club. They find Byth Rok, who has been taken captive by his own brethren. Byth Rok agrees to tell the Lanterns what they want to know, but only if they defeat Bumpy, the strongest Thanagarian in the cell block. Kilowog goes first, but Bumpy easily defeats him. Hal barely manages to defeat Bumpy when Byth Rok gives him some advice to take advantage of Bumpy's blind eye. Although Byth Rok regains leadership of the Thanagarians, he alters the deal: in exchange for the code, he wants freedom for himself and his men. He also wants Taveras's Green Lantern ring. Suddenly, a Red Lantern warship arrives at the prison asteroid. Hal replaces Goggan with Bumpy as warden to distract. He also uses a mind control collar to get Byth Rok to give them the code. Hal and the team refuge themselves in the Thanagarian cell block, where Hal agrees to let Byth Rok and the Thanagarians go free in exchange for their help in fighting the Red Lanterns. Instead, Byth Rok orders the Thanagarians to escape and leave the Green Lanterns to their fate. However, Hal predicted the Thanagarians would betray them, and the team hides in the cell block while the Red Lanterns chase after the Thanagarians. Although the team obtained the code to the Lighthouse, it turns out that Byth Rok stole Taveras's ring.
The team arrives at the Lighthouse. Unfortunately, the Red Lanterns reached the Lighthouse first and used the automated defenses against the Interceptor, forcing the team to fall back. Aya sneaks into the Lighthouse and reprogram its defenses to attack the Red Lanterns, allowing the Interceptor to enter the Lighthouse safely. As the team installs detonation charges across the Lighthouse, they are attacked by a Red Lantern ship piloted by Atrocitus and Zillius Zox. Hal orders Razer to detonate the charges, and the Interceptor barely escapes from the tunnel's collapse. However, Atrocitus's ship also passes through the belt, albeit heavily damaged. Hal, Kilowog and Razer infiltrate the ship to arrest Atrocitus, but they discover that Atrocitus set the ship to self-destruct. Razer constructs a force-field to protect them from the destruction, but Atrocitus, Zillius Zox and Drusa have taken over the Interceptor and reprogrammed Aya to travel to Oa. Atrocitus also detonates several Liberators he placed on the Maelstrom, creating a hole large enough for his warships to enter Guardian space.
Hal comes up with a new plan to get to Oa before Atrocitus. Hal and Razer go to Zamaron, hoping to get to Earth and reach Oa first. However, Kilowog elects to remain behind to stall the Red Lantern fleet. As Hal and Razer get to Zamaron, they ask Queen Aga'po and Ghia'ta, who had become Aga'po's advisor, to teleport him to Earth. Aga'po and Ghia'ta tell Hal that that the journey to Earth could potentially render him unstable, but Hal replies that if Atrocitus exterminates the Guardians, he will destroy everything and everyone in Guardian space. The Zamarons teleport Hal to Earth, but as soon as Hal reaches Earth, he loses his memory of being Green Lantern. Hal stumbles upon Carol, remembering the he invited her for dinner. During their meal, Carol continuously asks Hal about his duties as Green Lantern, but Hal doesn't answer. Suspecting something is wrong with Hal, Carol takes him to Ferris Aircraft and finds his Power Battery. She convinces Hal to place his ring on the battery, and Hal recovers his memories. Hal departs to Oa and reaches the Guardians's Citadel, just as Atrocitus is about to attack the Guardians. Hal tries to reason with Atrocitus, saying that although what the Manhunters did was wrong, destroying innocent lives will change nothing. Unfortunately, Atrocitus refuses to listen and attacks Hal. After a short fight, Hal defeats Atrocitus, placing him under arrest. He and Appa also promise Zox and the Red Lanterns that the Green Lantern Corps will help restoring the Forgotten Zone. This effectively forms a truce between the Green Lantern Corps and the Red Lantern Corps. With the Red Lantern war over, Hal returns to Earth and reunites with Carol.
Attack of the Manhunters
Unfortunately, things had changed while Hal was absent. Carol had been forced to replace Hal, while a new Green Lantern, Guy Gardner, had been chosen as the protector of sector 2814. Hal and Guy started on bad terms, their first meeting degenerating into a brawl. However, they were forced to investigate the disappearance of Dr. Nome Chilton in an ancient tomb. As they explore the tomb, Hal and Guy are attacked by three Manhunters, the robot enforcers that incited the Red Lantern rebellion. Working together, Hal and Guy defeat the Manhunters, gaining a mutual respect. After the battle, however, Hal recieves a call from Carol, who has decided to break up with him, as she believes his duties as a Green Lantern will not let him have a relationship with her. Hal is then summoned to Oa, where the Guardians relieve him of his position as Green Lantern of Earth. Instead, Hal becomes a member of the Green Lantern Honor Guard.
On his first mission as a member of the Honor Guard, Hal and Tomar-Re investigated a mysterious structure similar to the one he and Guy Gardner destroyed on Earth. After barely making it out of there alive, Hal deduced that there must be an activation signal that is reawakening the Manhunters. While Tomar-Re and the Guardians did not find any proof of the signal, they agreed that this threat must be investigated and allowed Hal to reassemble his team to investigate. First, Hal attempted to recruit Kilowog, who was busy drilling new recruits. While talking to Kilowog, the drillmaster had Ch'p, a small, squirrel-like Green Lantern trainee, spar with Hal Jordan, which the human promptly lost. After getting Kilowog on board, the two went to get the Interceptor and Aya, only to find that Aya had been replaced by a new AI and that she was scheduled to be dissected. The two Lanterns attempted to rescue her with Ch'p's help, but Hal found himself having to distract the Green Lantern Chaselon. Ch'p got Aya's AI out of their, but her body was left behind. Tomar-Re then informed Hal that he discovered a low-energy antimatter wave originating on Biot that could be the source of the Manhunters' reactivation.
With his team assembled, Hal, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re boarded the Interceptor and were off to Biot to investigate the antimatter wave without permission from the Guardians. The three Lanterns found another structure, and discovered that they were actually factories producing new Manhunters. After yet again barely making it out of the factory alive, the source of the antimatter wave revealed itself - the Anti-Monitor, a colossal extra-dimensional being who came to this universe to exterminate all life. The behemoth fired a powerful beam at the trio, which Hal blocked with his ring as Kilowog and Tomar-Re escaped on the Interceptor. Hal's ring eventually gave out, and was blasted into another universe.
After being blasted by the Anti-Monitor, Hal Jordan found himself in a steampunk world where he met the Steam Lantern, Gil Broome, who has a suit with a nuclear reactor powered by the aptly named Hardtofindium. Gil designed his suit after Alan Scott's after Alan had saved their world in the past. Hal and Gil fight Duke Nigel, who saved Gil's world from the Anti-Monitor by sending it back into Hal's universe and wanted recognition for his deeds, however he was severely misguided in his actions. Eventually Nigel realized the error of his ways, and Hal and Nigel open a rift between worlds, which Hal used to move Gil's world into Hal's universe, which drained Hal's battery.
Sometime later Hal, Kilowog, and Aya visit the Blue Lantern planet Odym to seek help in their battle against the Manhunters. However, they quickly learn that due to the Manhunters being powered by green energy, the blue energy powers them up just like Aya and the green lanterns, however they gained even more power than the others and overwhelmed them. Razer, who happened to be training to channel hope on Odym devised a plan to have Saint Walker summon a "friend" of his, a giant worm alien to move the main blue power battery, so that the Manhunters could be defeated by normal means. Razer departed with the others and they left Odym.
After leaving Odym Hal received a distress call from the war hero green lantern, Sinestro, who was under orders to forcibly take a prisoner of the Spider Guild to the Oan Sciencecells. The spider guild warned Hal to not rescue Sinestro, as the prisoner he had taken from them was very dangerous. Hal ignored the Spider, and did so anyway, the Spider activated his ship's self destruct, but Hal managed to rescue Sinestro and get away. Once on board, the prisoner was put into the Interceptor's sciencecell, however some time later, Sinestro took up a spider guild weapon and tried to kill the Interceptor's crew. This was actually the prisoner's doing, it was a brain jumper, and could hijack other people's brains. As Aya's brain was artificial, it could not effect her. Sinestro caught on to this and depressurized the ship, claiming to not have depressurized the cell, in an attempt to exile the brain jumper from whomever he was currently possessing, as it could not use their rings to create a personal shield. Razer nearly choked to death, but it jumped back into it's own body, only to find that sinestro had compromised the cell when he escaped from it after being imprisoned for his attack, and the brain jumper suffocated.
After dropping off Sinestro to Oa and reporting what happened to the Prisoner, the Interceptor team was ordered to Ysmault, the Red Lantern homeworld, which Shard was once part of, for a peace treaty signing. Once there, the Oan science director orders them to covertly take care of a manhunter. They defeat it, but Zilius Zox sees them, and they are forced to hold him prisoner on board the Interceptor, much to the Zox's and director's dismay. Hal and the director manage to convince Zox that the Manhunters are not being controlled by the Guardians, and the Red Lanterns help fight the Anti Monitor, however Aya, conflicted by the supposed rejection of Razer, turns off her emotions, and attacks the Anti-Monitor, only to take it over. The crew tried to console Aya to return, but she refused to listen and declared herself to be the queen of the Manhunters. She reactivated the Manhunters and continued to listen to Aya how emotions caused pain, before they were blasted by Aya. 
After being blasted by Aya, the crew was stuck in space and couldn't fly anywhere with their main battery empty and couldn't recharge their rings. The Interceptor was pulled by the gravity of a nearby planet, with the atmosphere filled almost of all of methane, and crashlanded on it. The crew discovered a dome-sealed citadel and decided to hide over there, however the citizens were hostile against Green Lanterns and attacked them. The rings of Hal and Kilowog eventually ran out, making Razer, the only one with a working ring, a translator for both of them. The crew sneaked into the city, but after Razer's ring went out losing the only translator, they were discovered by the aliens. As the crew tried to escape they were captured by the aliens.
They were taken to a gladiator arena where they had to fight against a large creature with a whip. The crew had difficulty fighting it, but Hal noticed on the creature's belt a head of a Manhunter. He tried to make it clear to the others, and eventually his and Kilowog's rings by using the Manhunter's head. They returned to the ship, where the main battery had recharged, and after Hal boasted on his speech at the arena, confusing the other Lanterns as they could not understand him, they departed from the planet with Interceptor.
Trying to get back to Oa in a short time, they had the plan to use the ultrawarp, but it had huge risks. After Razer calculated the trajections, they used the ultrawarp, but they landed near a star, fortunately they escaped from its atmosphere. While they were near Oa, Hal noticed a portal showing up, revealing Carol fighting against Atrocitus. Hal flew in, arriving on Zamaron. There he was glad to see Carol again, however despite their combined teamwork, Atrocitus still had the hand in battle. When Atrocitus prepared to finish Hal off, Hal was protected when Ghia'ta jumped in to protect her love. Hal decided to finish it off, and with Carol's help, knocked out Atrocitus making them the victors of the battle between love and hate. However Hal was saddened that Ghia'ta had to die during the battle. Despite all that Aya was displeased of the match, seeing as Ghia'ta died because of love. Hal tried to persuade her to come back, but she refused. She prepared to finish Hal and Carol off, but they were saved by Razer and Kilowog. Hal was shocked that Aya declared she will get rid all emotional beings in unison, to replace them with emotionless Manhunters and watched as she departed with her Manhunters. After the ordeal, the crew and Aga'po mourned for Ghia'ta's dead. After Carol decided to keep her ring and went to return to Earth, she gave Hal a kiss on the cheek and bade farewell.Aboard the Interceptor, Hal was scolded by Appa Ali Apsa over Aya's recent evil decision. Hal admitted that their situation was his fault and tried to suggest talking to Aya before quickly being denied by Appa, whom stated that a new A.I. would be installed and ordered that after it's instillation that Hal and the others go to Oa. After Hal asked what action they would take upon his arrival to Oa, Appa stated that the council would decide what to do regarding the universal threat that he had created. Following Appa's transmission's ending, Hal stressed to Kilowog that he did not believe that Appa and the other Guardians were making the right decision and that he believed Aya was still inside of herself somewhere, suggesting that the group try to talk to her. Following Kilowog questioning what the group would do if she attacked them while they tried to be nice to her, Hal stated that while they could not overlook that possibility and they would need something to even their odds. Hal was quickly confused over Razer's suggestion to use the Orange Energy. Hal allowed Razer to continue with his suggestion and learned of the Orange Lanterns. As Razer retreated to his corders, Hal concluded that he was really hurting and upon their arrival to Okaara, suggested that Kilowog keep an eye on him. Hal made his way towards the Orange Lantern Power Battery and was soon met by Larfleeze, whom chose to question him as he approached it. Though Hal initially stated that he would return the battery after using it to save others, the power of it's greed caused Hal to state that the Orange Lantern Power Battery was his and stated to run with it. Though Larfleeze initially sent several constructs to attack him, Hal managed to subdue each of them before Larfleeze attacked him directly, claiming that those whom tried to steal the Orange Lantern Power Battery would die. However, Hal was soon saved by both Razer and Kilowog. As Razer concluded that Larfleeze was insane, Hal insisted that the group did not have any time for him and quickly defeated him. After returning to the Interceptor, Hal began to become obsessive over the Orange Lantern and quickly insisted that he was fine. Following Razer's suggestion that the group could use their Orange Lantern Power Battery to restore Aya to herself, Hal corrected him rather angrily by stating that the Orange Lantern Power Battery was only his. As Razer and Kilowog tried to help him, Hal wrongfully accused the two of trying to steal his Orange Lantern by double-teaming him before knocking the two out with the battery's power and transforming into an actual Orange Lantern. Following his transformation, Hal retreated to Larfleeze's lair and placed ten Orange Lantern rings on his hands, one on each finger. He was soon discovered by Larfleeze, Razer and Kilowog, addressing the latter two as his old friends. While they tried to explain that the Orange Lantern was filling him with greed, Hal ignored them and went outside, where they brought up Aya to him. As Hal uttered her name, the revelation that she was currently indulging in destroying the universe dawned on him and caused him to have enough strength to resist the Orange Lantern greed that had clouded him. With his original personality and will back in check, he watched with the others as Larfleeze become intrigued with his returned battery and realized that it could not help the group as he originally thought. Hal promised not to take anything and went off with the others after Larfleeze failed to give them a gift. Following Razer's suggestion that the group could turn Aya back, Hal believed in his theory due to his own transition to evil and restoration to good.
