flashpoint-logo_whiteHal Jordan is known for a lot of things – reckless behavior, a flagrant disregard for authority, and a flair for the wild side to name a few. But with Abin Sur being very much alive in the FLASHPOINT universe, what does this mean for Hal? Can he still move beyond his brash behavior and step up to the role of the hero without being chosen by a ring? In FLASHPOINT: HAL JORDAN #1, Hal is put to the test. “What would Hal Jordan be like if he never became a Green Lantern?” writer Adam Schlagman asks. “Would he finally be in a committed relationship with Carol Ferris or remain his irresponsible self? In this world on the verge of apocalyptic war, can one reckless test pilot finally accept responsibility and defeat agents from Atlantis, Invisible Planes, and a Hydra? And is he capable of the sacrifice required to drop the Green Arrow bomb?” FLASHPOINT: HAL JORDAN #1 features art by Ben Oliver and a cover by Rags Morales and Gabe Eltaeb. Head over to IGN to view exclusive preview pages and read the book when it hits stands next week.
