Why we love Hal (Green Lantern) Jordan

There are MANY reasons to love Hal Jordan. We love Hal Jordan because ...

1. Hal Jordan is an arrogant bastard.

2. Hal Jordan is a reckless bastard.

3. Hal Jordan is a careless bastard.

4. Hal Jordan is a promiscuous bastard.

Waitaminute ... something's not quite right here. Just WHY do we love this bastard ...? Oh, wait, I remember:

5. BEST ASS in the DC Universe!

(Or BIGGEST ass in the DC Universe -- you decide!)

Hmmmm...exactly why DO we love this jerk? I think that you've hit the nail on the head, Sea. That and that damn stray curling forlock on his head. I'm a sucker for Hal's hair. It's almost as hyppnotic as his behind.

I've always loved Hal's hair, too. That stray lock that hangs over his forehead just begs for someone to reach out and brush it aside -- thereby offering a good distraction while lining up Hal for a good thump on the noggin'. ;-)

Good grief! I guess I was just so excited at the sight of Hal's posterior, that I completely forgot how to spell!

We love Hal for the same reasons we love Guy... he's flawed, but courageous as hell. We see in him some ugly character traits that make him more "real" than a Superman or Barry Allen. And I think even Batman would admit, there's just about no one (outside of Supes) you'd want fighting on your side and watching your back than Hal. He's brash and arrogant at times, but he'll never give up in a fight.

That and the hair. I've always been jealous of his hair. He and Clark have a great stylist.

You're absolutely right, Matthew. Despite Hal's shortcomings, he's a hero through and through. And I think his shortcomings actually make him a rather exciting hero, 'cause ya never quite know what he's going to do.

'Course, it also helps that he's pretty. :-)
