I'm posting the Green Lantern Bio.
I noticed that a lot of players have asked to play the Green Lantern, but not Hal Jordan. I too noticed that there was quite some discussion about this canon character.
So I hope this bio will satisfy all members of this group, and be a nice addition for the game. If not let me know.
Superhero/villain: the Green Lantern
Real Name: Hal Jordan
Sexual Orientation: heterosexual/dominant
Base of Operations: formerly Coast city, California, N/A
Each Green Lantern wields a power ring that can generate a variety of effects, sustained purely by the ring wearer's imagination and strength of will. The greater the user's willpower, the more effective the ring.
Power rings as used by various wielders have exhibited (but are not limited to) the following effects:
Constructs of green 'solid-energy,' which can vary from microscopic to tremendous in size and/or complexity and are limited by the imagination of the ring's wielder. This can be used to attack, defend, or to grab targets (Pre-Crisis, the rings generated telekinectic skills without constructs, if needed)
Force field generation, a somewhat protective aura (limited by user's willpower) used to shield the wearer from the rigors of the vacuum of space. This provides a breathable atmosphere for the user as well. Contrary to older canon, a Green Lantern ring currently does not automatically protect its wearer from harm but must be willed to do so (previously, an unconscious wielder generated a protective force field automatically).
Generation of mental "earplugs" to block out telepathic communication and manipulation.
Rendering targets invisible.
Lights and beams of various intensity and colors, such as destructive plasma and harmless multicolored lights.
Flight, including flight at speeds beyond that of light, although this creates an enormous expenditure of energy.
Relatively instantaneous transport across the galaxy and other distances through generated wormholes
Teleportation (an ability that has not been used in quite some time and may be outside the ability of modern Green Lanterns)
Pre-Crisis, the rings allowed for travel faster than the speed of light.
Time travel, though several power rings are needed to complete this.
The rings can act as semi-sentient computers and accesses information through its connection with the Book of Oa; the rings have problem-solving skills but they cannot make decisions or take actions on their own, and must be given directives by the wearer:
Translation of nearly all languages (originally, this was accomplished by using willpower, but this has changed in the modern era to be a function of the rings themselves).
Communication between ringwielders, regardless of distance apart
Diagnostic capabilities, allowing the user to see in X-Ray, diagnose illnesses, and identify materials.
Mental powers of various stages:
Hypnosis, including projecting the target's thoughts onto constructed maps
Creation and emission of certain types of radiation, including simulated wavelengths, such as kryptonite
Placing humans into a state of suspended animation and pulling them out of it
Changing the state of targeted matter and the wearer:
Allowing targets and the wearer to phase through solid objects
Rendering the wearer and targets to become invisible
Accelerated healing of wounds, protection and treatment from viruses and biological attacks and certain surgical procedures including reattachment of severed limbs and digits. More advanced medical procedures may be performed manually and are limited by the wearer's knowledge of medicine. Pre-Crisis, a wearer could instantaneously reinvigorate limbs that had not been used in years, so someone bedridden for years could walk as though their muscles had not atrophied.
Virtual shape-shifting by generating a hard-light holographic disguise around the ring bearer.
"Digitizing" the wearer to absorb them into the ring where they can live in a wearer-generated "world" of their own nearly indefinitely.
Pre-Crisis, a ring could alter a being's molecular size (including shrinking to an atomic level), evolutionary stage (such as turning a target human into an ape), or distort specific targeted areas of the body (slowing the Flash down by making his upper torso too large for him to run).
Pre-Crisis, a wearer could animate non-living matter and make the target do whatever is willed.
Pre-Crisis, the rings could create a construct of a ring that a "non-Lantern" could use for 4 hours at a time (as opposed to 24) without a great effort of will.
Pre-Crisis, a ring could create multiple copies of its wearer if certain conditions were met; each copy had the capabilities of the original wearer.
In Green Lantern: First Flight Sinestro was able to "reconnect synapses" in the brain of a dead criminal in order to extract information via a kind of guided discussion.
The upper limits of the power ring's abilities remain undefined, and it has been referred to as "the most powerful weapon in the universe" on more than one occasion. It has also been stated that every weapon has a weakness and the weakness a Green Lantern ring has is its wearer (though some argue that this is its strength). Across the years, the rings have been shown capable of accomplishing almost anything within the imagination of the ring bearer. Stories in 2006 reconnected the ring's long-established ineffectiveness on yellow objects, stating that the ring-wielder need only feel fear, understand it and overcome it in order to affect yellow objects (however, it is a learned and practiced ability, making it a weakness to some Green Lanterns), giving retroactive credence to the explanation of the ring's real but surmountable weakness to yellow.
The Green Lantern Oath:
In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!
Hal Jordan was born in Coast City on February the 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. Despite his family's wishes, he followed in his father's footsteps and eventually joined the United States Air Force as soon as he was eligible.
Many years later, a dying alien named Abin Sur who had been a member of the Green Lantern Corps crash-landed his ship in the Californian desert. Selecting a replacement officer for his position, the power ring chose Hal Jordan for his ability to overcome great fear. The ring and its abilities were explained to him, and he inherited the mantle of Green Lantern. Acting as a galactic police officer, it was his job to serve and protect all life in Sector 2814. He would soon learn that there were another 3600 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. While training, he learned that Sinestro has been subjugating his home planet, Korugar with his ring, through fear. He reported these acts to the Guardians and to his own fellow Corps about this. He then battled Sinestro, and was victorious, and then, along with the rest of the Corps, testified against him at his trial. Sinestro was expelled from the Corps and banished to the Antimatter Universe by the Guardians as punishment, finally becoming a sworn enemy of the Corps and then got a new Qward power ring, beginning his revenge.
As Green Lantern, he patrolled the galaxy and went on many missions in space. He continued to spend his time at home working at Ferris Aircraft, where he romantically pursued his boss, the lovely Carol Ferris. He would entrust his secrets to a young eskimo lad who worked as his mechanic, Tom Kalmaku.
Green Lantern was one of the founding members of the Justice League of America, along with the Flash, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter and of course, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. This group first banded together when they met to fight Appellaxians invading the planet, and realized that they worked much stronger as a team than any of them could have individually.
Recently, the attack of Earth by Darkseid and his army had been stopped only at great cost:the death of Green Lantern in the process, even though his body was never retrieved, and the disbanding of the Justice League along with the decision of various heroes to follow a darker, more realistic and less idealistic path.
For now, Darkseid has been defeated and imprisonned inside the Source Wall. The re-awakening of Hal Jordan is a mystery to all, including himself, one that he wishes to solve.
Hal Jordan is awakening right now, and has not participated in any activity after his 'death'.
