The best treatment Hal Jordan ever got 10. Januar 2003
Von Lamont Savage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In the 60's, the Green Lantern concept was expanded from its original "mystical ring" role. Instead of being one guy, it became a legion of superheroes, each wearing a green ring and protecting a certain sector of space from invaders. Their bosses, who issued the rings and controlled their power source, were small, wizened aliens "the Guardians" whose tiny bodies housed great power.
Sound a little like Star Wars? Well, both Green Lantern and Star Wars borrow heavily from an old scifi book called "Lensmen." It was a great concept for a comic book, especially with the power rings. An imaginitive Lantern could conjure up anything with his ring (tanks, monsters, giant hamburgers). The ring had to be recharged every 24 hours, so running out of power was always part of the drama.
This idea was pretty good, but Green Lantern never caught on much with fans. Hal Jordan, who was the main Green Lantern throughout most of the run, was bumbled by writer after writer. The ring was amazing, and the cast of villains looked cool, but Hal never had much of a personality. His supporting cast (including an Eskimo named 'Pieface') was bland at best.
After decades of low sales, series cancellations, and fan indifference (besides a small, rabid few), DC Comics was ready to give free reign to Marz in "Emerald Twilight". He solidified Jordan's personality, which had been everything from "generic defender of justice" (early days) to "fickle, midlife crisis hero" (early 90s). Marz made Jordan into the misused servant of the Guardians, a talented and driven man who had been demoralized by years of service to these self-righteous 'tyrants'.
After his hometown is destroyed while he is away fulfilling an insignificant mission for the Guardians, Jordan is overwhelmed with grief. When rebuked by the Guardians, his anger and pride emerge, and he decides to seize the source of Green Lantern power and use it for his own purposes. In a Darth Vader-like move, the most skilled Green Lantern in history destroys the whole group.
Very interesting stuff, and what Jordan does after seizing power (Zero Hour and Final Night) is good too. People balk at making Jordan a 'villain', but let's face it, until Emerald Twilight, he was a superhero has-been at best.

Dosn't deliver! 20. Februar 2000
Von Alex Benavides - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While the premise of "Emerald Twilight" starts off promisingly (legendary GL Hal Jordan goes rogue), it ultimately falls apart with no real resolution to make sense of it all. There are simply too many places where characters betray their established histories (Hal killing, the Guardians resurrecting villains) or the logic of the plot is nonexistent (how can one GL possibly accomplish everything Hal does in this story?). DC Comics legend has it that this storyline was put together in a very rushed manner when former GL writer, Gerard Jones left (or was let go) abruptly. Frankly, the lack of plotting and attention to detail shows.

Abandoning an icon. 30. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A rushed job, a novice writer, and an exceptionally controversial decision team up to make what could have been an intriguing storyline and turn it into a farce. Ron Marz's lack of familiarity with Hal Jordan and the rest of the cast virtually bleeds through at every panel, and the awkward pacing makes me wonder where Kevin Dooley (the editor) did his job. Melodramatic, unrefined, and ultimately unworthy of the character ruined by this farce. This comic helped mark the end of the speculator craze when even other members of the industry condemned it.

A complete disrespect to fans. 27. Februar 2000
Von Fabio Balaguer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you're a new reader and you've never read Green Lantern before, this book won't mean anything to you. The plotline is confusing, full of characters that you don't know who they are, actions flow in a reckless sequence and it lacks suspence and creativity. If you've been reading Green Lantern for years now, the book is not only a creative disaster, but it will disrespect your passion for the true and nobel hero that Hal Jordan has always been to you. If you can't relate to Hal Jordan because you don't know him, try to imagine that a villain has blown up Metropolis and Superman goes crazy, turns into a villain himself and murders other fellow heroes throughout the planet. That's what's they did with Hal Jordan. Don't wait your time and money with this book, the creators were just trying a cheap way out to introduce a new character, it was purely made for commercial reasons, no art not talent involved.

Simply the pits 20. Februar 2000
Von John Penninger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Absolutely dreadful. This is the sort of dark, bloody and vandalistic exercise that helped send the comics industry into its current tailspin.
