The character of Harold "Hal" Jordan was a second-generation test pilot, having followed in the footsteps of his father. He was given the power ring and battery (lantern) by a dying alien named Abin Sur, whose spaceship crashed on Earth. Abin Sur used his ring to seek out an individual who was "utterly honest and born without fear" to take his place as a member of the corps. At one point, when Hal Jordan was incapacitated, it was revealed that there were two individuals matching the specified criteria on Earth, the other being Guy Gardner, and the ring chose Jordan solely because of his proximity to Abin Sur.

Green Lantern from
MEGO CORP.

The first Green Lantern character, Alan Scott, was created in 1940 by Bill Finger based on original character designs by Martin Nodell during the initial popularity of superheroes. Alan Scott usually fought common criminals in New York City with the aid of his magic ring.

In 1959, Julius Schwartz reinvented the Green Lantern character as a science fiction hero named Hal Jordan. Hal Jordan’s powers were more or less the same as Alan Scott’s, but otherwise this character was completely different than the Green Lantern character of the 1940s. He had a new name, a redesigned costume, and a rewritten origin story. Hal Jordan received his ring from a dying alien and was commissioned as an officer of the Green Lantern Corps, an interstellar law enforcement agency overseen by the Guardians of the Universe.[2]

 
Cover to Showcase #22 (October 1959), the first appearance of Hal Jordan.

Hal Jordan was introduced in Showcase #22 (September–October 1959). Gil Kane, Joe Giella and Sid Greene were the art team most notable on the title in its early years, along with writer John Broome.
