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 reciting the Green Lanterns' Oath

Attack Potency: Low Multiverse level (Comparable to Pre-Crisis Superman and Ultraman, The Time Trapper sent the energy from an unknown amount of power rings to the time-dimension to destroy all but one possible future [1]) | Solar System level (Comparable to Superman, Flash and other heavy hitters of the Justice League, and Kyle Rayner. Should be comparable to John Stewart who reaches his ring's limit when trying to recreate the Xanshi Star system[2])

If the user is somehow overcome by fear they will be unable to use the ring and will become vulnerable to the color yellow. If Green Lantern loses focus or concentration (i.e. through illusions) his power will weaken



  • Hal blocks Ultraman's heat-vision.[7]
  • Withstood the Universe's magnetic force[8]
  • An alien who copied Hal's body, memories, and stole his ring hurts and may kill Superman[9]
  • According to Superman, the power of Hal’s ring defies all quantification[10]
  • Hal designed a prison that was capable of holding Ultra-Man and the Crime Syndicate. Power Girl and Alan Scott prove incapable of shattering the construct. It takes the combined power of Dr. Fate and Starman to do the job. [11]
  • Hal Jordan says that he stopped Superman cold once[12]

  • Time travel is harder since the crisis. Hal and Arisia time-travel[13]
  • Hal Jordan fights Captain Atom[14]
    • Captain Atom didn't learn about his Universal level powers until later on[15]
  • A rookie Hal due to a timewarp was forced to fight himself as Parallax. Young Hal says their wills are even(They are the same person), but Parallax says that he has more power.[16]
  • Inside his battery, Hal fuses will and imagination to create a Microverse, projected from the hologram of his mind.[17]
  • Hal contains a star destroying entropic weapon[18]
  • Hal Jordan and Sinestro cause a collision so powerful it bends local reality[19]
  • Took a punch from Superboy-Prime[20]
  • Hal severely damages AMAZO who all of the League's powers[21]
  • Hal and other Lanterns spike the second Mandrakk, Rox Ogama[22]
  • Hal stops Captain Atom who is holding back[23]
  • Hal fights on par with Lobo[24]
  • Hal catches Parallax Flash who is running in circles[25]
  • Krona who had Ion easily tanked all of Hal's willpower, but Hal was able to scratch Krona[26]
  • (Outlier and PIS) Hal Jordan one-shots Krona who absorbed all the Emotional Entities. The writers made Hal stronger than a guardian and 7 Emotional Entities put together somehow. This is the last issue before the New 52 reboot.[27]

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Auto-Aura: A passive ability that activates several enhancements simply by wearing the ring. Grants some increase in durability, regulates temperature and oxygen, allowing the wielder to survive in space. Allows for flight.
  • Autoshields: A forcefield that activates automatically whenever a GL is in danger, independent of their own will. This shield is not as strong as a purpose - created forcefield, however.
  • Constructs: The primary method of usage. The GL rings can create energy constructs that can easily be larger than planets. These are often used as weapons, restraints, or tools.
  • Scan: GL Rings can analyze a target comprehensively, determining its identity, power source, power level, threat level, weaknesses, capabilities, etc. This takes a bit of time to complete, though.
