You're afraid to even admit you're afraid. I know - I've spent my entire life doing it. You know, we have a saying on Earth - we say: "I'm only human." We say it because we're vulnerable, we say it because we know we're afraid. It doesn't mean we're weak. Help me save my planet! Don't give in to fear -Â fight it! Fight it with me!
Billions of years ago, a race of immortals harnessed the most powerful force in existence: the emerald energy of willpower. These immortals, the Guardians of the Universe, built a world from where they could watch over all of existence: the planet Oa. They divided the universe into three thousand six hundred sectors, a ring powered by the energy of will was sent to every sector of the universe to select a recruit. In order to be chosen by the ring, it is said that one must be without fear. Together these three thousand six hundred recruits formed the intergalactic peacekeepers known as the Green Lantern Corps. Of all the threats the Corps ever faced gravest was an entity of fear known as Parallax. Only the legendary Green Lantern Abin Sur was capable of capturing and imprisoning this beast, which he did on the lost planet of Ryut.
Though his time wearing the ring has has been brief, Hal Jordan's defeat of Parallax will be remembered as long as the Corps exists. His actions are a reminder of why the ring chose each of us - to overcome fear, and destroy evil wherever it may hide. As Lanterns we must fight with all our will. Our wills have not always been united. It's time they were.
I feel your fear growing. You will be dead soonâ€¦
In brightest day, in blackest nightâ€¦
â€¦and when you are gone, I will destroy everything you ever lovedâ€¦
â€¦no evil, shall escape my sightâ€¦
â€¦your family, your home, your planet will be no more.
â€¦let those who worship evils mightâ€¦
Your entire human race will be wiped out, because you, Hal Jordan, were afraid.
â€¦beware my power...GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT!
