Green Lantern was a highly distinguished member of the Order of Emerald Knights, being an only child when the Shadow League unleashed monsters that poured from the darkness to slay everyone in their path. If the famed Emerald Knight Alan Scott had not intervened, the boy would’ve perished. Raised by a legend among legends, Harold was a shining beacon of strength and will upon any battlefield. Barely living through a nuclear firestorm, Hal was nearly killed while trying to save others. While holding tons of rubble that pinned the survivors, he was crushed by falling debris when his ring’s construct suddenly shattered. Jordan woke up days later in an emergency clinic to a shocking discovery: his right arm had been amputated. In addition, his powerless ring was embedded in his chest and couldn’t be removed without risk to his heart, leaving him a broken man. Hope returned when a mysterious figure visited him. He said he discovered a radioactive isotope born of the nuclear war that might repair his ring. However, this wouldn’t come without consequences but GL agreed without a second thought. With the isotope in place, his powers returned, although his constructs lacked the definition they once had. He only hoped he could help rebuild his world before the radiation killed him.
