Hal Jordan has become one of the greatest Green Lanterns of all time. He is also a vital member of the Justice League.
Green Lantern is one of the two white bishops in the Justice League chess set. Like the piece he represents in this collection, he wields great power and can strike suddenly, as if from nowhere. But also like the bishop, overconfidence and reckless behaviour can lead to his downfall.
