Description
Before he became the Green Lantern...before he unwittingly brought about the downfall of the Green Lantern Corps...before his rebirth as the universe's most powerful protector...Hal Jordan of Earth was just a washed-up test pilot with no way to fly...until the dying alien Abin Sur granted him his power ring, the most powerful weapon in the universe--and his entry into a reality he could never have imagined.

Hal Jordan's metamorphosis from cocky test pilot to the role of the intergalactic guardian Green Lantern makes its way to the big screen in June 2011 from Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by Martin Campbell(CASINO ROYALE) and starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

In preparation for his roll as Hal Jordan in "Green Lantern," Ryan Reynolds, who also contributes the introduction to this new edition, has pointed to Geoff Johns' GREEN LANTERN: SECRET ORIGIN as "his bible" for shaping his portrayal of Hal Jordan:
"Green Lantern encompasses a seemingly limitless supply of adventure."

This new edition includes several preview pages from Green Lantern: Rebirth and Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War.

From the Hardcover edition.
