A weapon is only as strong as the one who wields it—a fact we’re putting to the test in this week’s “Versus Live!” Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner are two of the most beloved and widely respected members of the Green Lantern Corps, but only one can be the best. Is it Hal? Collider Heroes’ Markeia McCarty is here to make the case for the former test pilot. Of course, she’ll have to contend with her Collider colleague Coy Jandreau, who’s all about Kyle. Will Hal’s courage and determination be the deciding factor? Or will it be Kyle’s creativity and out-of-the-box thinking?
If you had to pick one word to describe Hal Jordan, it would probably have something to do with willpower, right? After all, as the first human member of the Green Lantern Corps, a group of intergalactic superheroes who are literally founded on the harnessing of will as energy, willpower is something that sets him apart. That's what makes him able to be a hero, rather than just a test pilot with a reckless streak.

Let’s take a look at some of the Dark Knight’s most challenging forays into the world of partnering.
Do you think they have apples on Korugar? Maybe not, but when it comes to its most famous resident and his daughter, the only thing we can say is that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
Most of the time, when you talk about a specific Lantern Corps, you’re talking about...well, a bunch of people wielding the same color ring. That’s kind of implied in the name, and it’s true for all of the colors on the emotional spectrum.
...Except for one of them.
Even on their most routine days, the Green Lantern Corps don’t exactly have a job anyone could classify as easy, but lately things have been pretty complicated, even by their standards. Between rogue governments, dying universes, parasitic rings from alternate earths and renegade agents of Apokolips, the recent history of the Corps and its members can seem a little tricky to navigate.
