Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

After test pilot Hal Jordan is summoned to the side of a dying alien, he assumes the alien's role as protector of Earth and of sector 2814, the sector of the galaxy which contains Earth (Showcase No. 22, Sep/Oct 1959: "SOS Green Lantern").

Hal's power, and that of each member of the 3,600-member interstellar Green Lantern Corps to which he belongs, is expressed through a power ring. The ring must be recharged by a power battery at least once every 24 hours and cannot directly affect anything colored yellow. Superman has a deep respect for the might of this weapon and it can even be used against him. For instance, the ring has the ability to create Green Kryptonite that can incapacitate Superman, although maintaining this effect requires concentration (DCCP No. 26, Oct 1980: "Between Friend and Foe!").

As a founding member of the Justice League of America, Green Lantern has teamed with Superman many times.
