hey say I'm fearless, but actually I'm very afraid. Of getting beat. Of backing down. Of chickening out. That fear just blows all the others away. - Hal Jordan

Green Lantern power rings depend on the willpower of the wearer; the maximum rank of the ring’s effects is equal to the wearer’s Will rank, and moments of self-doubt or hesitation can cause the ring to fail.

I love build Lantern Corpsmen (obviously) and this run at Hal gave me a chance to review my power ring power structure and make some very minor tweaks. From a couple of tests with him it works exactly how I wanted to I didn’t figure there was much sense in making many changes.
Hal Jordan was born in Coast City on February 20th, to parents Martin Jordan and Jessica Jordan, the middle of three children with older brother Jack and a younger brother Jim. As a young child, he idolized his father, a test pilot who worked for Ferris Aircraft. At a very young age, he had to face his greatest fears when his father died in a plane crash right before his eyes. Despite his family's wishes, he followed in his father's footsteps and eventually joined the United States Air Force on his 18th birthday – turning up that very morning outside the Armed Forces Career Center before it had even opened.
Many years later, a dying alien named Abin Sur, member of the Green Lantern Corps, crash-landed his ship in the Californian desert. His power ring, being programmed to select a worthy replacement for any of their users that die, chose Hal Jordan for his ability to overcome great fear.
The ring automatically transported him to Oa, where and its abilities were explained to him, and he inherited the mantle of Green Lantern of Sector 2814. He would soon learn that there were another 3599 Green Lanterns across the universe, all monitored and empowered by mystical creatures called the Guardians. Hal received training from some of the best the Corps had to offer, including drill sergeant Kilowog, and his mentor, Sinestro.
The Story so Far:
During his training, Hal learned that Sinestro has been subjugating his home planet, Korugar, through fear, using his ring. After Hal reported these acts to the Guardians and fellow Corps members, he battled Sinestro, and emerged victorious. Along with the rest of the Corps, he then testified against Sinestro at his trial. Expelled from the Corps and banished by the Guardians to the Antimatter Universe as punishment, Sinestro became a sworn enemy to the Corps and gained a new Qwardian power ring, the start of his revenge.
The Guardians originally only sanctioned one Green Lantern per sector, then allotted two per sector about 7 years ago and Hal was joined by John Stewart and succeeded in role at times by Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner. Hal had However, due to the events of Blackest Night and the revelation that life indeed started on Earth, and the amount of superhuman and intergalactic disturbances on Earth over the past 7-10 years, the Guardians have made an exception and allotted 5 for Section 2814. The recently resurrected Abin Sur, Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner all share responsibility for the sector and all also rotate as the Green Lantern representative on the Justice League.
Hal is a reckless and cocky man that struggles with authority. More than once he has left his emotions cloud his better judgment, something the Guardians berate him for. Despite those attributes, he’s a one of the universe’s greatest hero with a strong willpower and an ability to overcome great fear. Hal is guided by his own conscience rather than the general rules that most of the Green Lanterns follow. One of his best traits is his refusal to admit defeat even in the darkest of situations, which has allowed him to achieve victory when facing even the most difficult odds,
Jordan is seen by many as the greatest Green Lantern of all, but he personally believes that spot belongs to his predecessor, Abin Sur. Sinestro, of course, believes that spot belongs to him and continually tries to prove that by proving his superiority to Jordan and the rest of the Corps by being their biggest nemesis.
Friends and Foes:
Hal and his boss at Ferris Aircraft, Carol Ferris, have been romantically involved off and and on for years. They are currently “off” but Hal remains hopeful of reconciliation. Carol, who is the current leader of the Star Sapphire Corps deeply loves Hal, but remains separated from him to keep that bond as she fears their rocky history will lead to the loss of thelove that she needs to wield her power. Hal has also been involved with fellow Green Lantern Arisia Rrab, the superheroine Diva and Jillian Pearlman
Hal is also good friends with Tom Kalmaku, a young Eskimo lad who worked as his mechanic at Ferris Air. His best friend is Oliver Queen, Green Arrow. They two of them became close as member of the Justice League but eventually did a lot of adventuring together, strengthening their bond. He also counts Barry Allen, The Flash, as one of his best friends as well.
He has several enemies, but none with a more complex or personal history than his former friend and mentor, Sinestro. They have clashed several times over the years, but when the threat has loomed large enough, they have been able to put aside their differences and work for the common good of the universe.

Did a little work on Hal. Since I really think he deserves Favored Environment, it allowed me to pump up his power for the sake of accuracy since he will be flying a lot which will give him +2 to hit so he'll really be a PL14 on offense a lot of the time.

A few tweaks to Hal as I look at all my Corps.
Clean Up 8/11/13:
Updated Hal for the Superior Thorpacoverse.
Clean Up 4/9/14:
Trying a new Force Bubble mechanic that I may have to add to 30+ @#$*@^! Lantern builds if I like it.
