Green Lantern: First Flight

Synopsis: When pilot Hal Jordan accepts a mysterious, powerful ring from a dying alien creature, it transforms him into a Green Lantern - one of an elite force of heroes. These heroes patrol the universe to ensure peace and justice under the leadership of the Guardians of the Universe. Unsure of their newest recruit, the Guardians assign Hal to their most-honored Green Lantern Sinestro for training, unaware that Sinestro wants to overthrow the Guardians and create a new order he'll control. It's a battle of might and willpower as Hall must prove his worth by defeating Sinestro to save the Green Lantern Corps.

I'll tell you, Carol, it's quite a sight

up here. All those stars, the blue water.

Reminds me of that night in Cabo.


Hal, stay on the flight.

A lot of sangria that night.

- Boy, could you put it away.

- Hal.

I don't know how

we made it to the hotel...

Hal, you're at 91,400 feet.

Ten feet higher, the window cracks

and you're tapioca.

Just pushing it a little.

Maybe we'll set a record for the company.

Please, Hal. For once in your life,

no stunts, no surprises.

No surprises.

Find him.

Make this landing and we'll have

a perfect flight, Mr. Jordan.

So does this mean I get a gold star,

or just an incredible simulation?

What happened to the power?


Carol? Anybody?

If I have to fly

this freaking park ride again...


My God.


It's all right.

My time has come.

You speak English.


It's the ring.

It has chosen you. Take it.

You are now a Green Lantern... of the protectors of the universe.

The Guardians will send for you.


...the ring...


What the hell?

...and when that weird

glow cleared, the simulator was...

Was there an earthquake?

I guess it's okay,

but a whole week?

Where are you going?

I don't know. I thought I'd do

some exploring. See some new sights.

Not much else to do

until we get word on the prototype.

Well, at least the simulator

wasn't damaged too badly.

Hey, Carol, gotta run.

I'll call you from...


So it's true.

Abin Sur really is dead.

Where is his body?

- I said, where is...?

- It was blown up with the spacecraft.

I want it off.


The poozer's not even trained.

Someone's been practicing.

And without a manual.

Let's all power down for a moment,

shall we?

I don't think

we've been properly introduced.

My name is Sinestro.

This is Boodikka, Tomar Re...

- ...and you've met our charming Kilowog.

- Heh.

- And you?.

- Hal Jordan.

Well, Hal Jordan...

...we are members

of the Green Lantern Corps... elite, intergalactic force

from the planet Oa.

Our superiors are a group of immortals

known as the Guardians.

- Yeah. They're supposed to send for me.

- That's right.

We're to bring you back for a little chat.

And in case you're wondering...

...this is not a request.

The ring isn't yours

until the Guardians have decided.

- Okay.

- Very good.

Tomar, would you do the honors?

We thought the trip might be easier

for you in a more earthly construct.

Uh, thanks.

You must understand, earthling...

...the Green Lantern Corps

is a privileged organization.

Not just anyone can join.

There are tremendous commitments.

Each Lantern is responsible...

...for patrolling one of 3600 sectors

of the universe.

- But...

- Sort of like one cop per precinct.

Uh, yes. I... I suppose.

My uncle was a cop.

Yes, but...

Thirty years on the

Coast City police force.

He used to let me

turn on the siren. Nice guy.

But more than that,

the Green Lantern ring is a complex tool.

It takes someone

with fierce concentration.

I think I got the hang of it.

He's got the hang of it.


Why are we even entertaining this?

He's a human.

Yes, hard to get past that.

I'm afraid the human race of Earth

does not have the most stellar reputation.

The fact is humans are crude,

base, fearful and untrustworthy.

Then there's the smell.

You can't condemn an entire species.

You've said it yourself, Ganthet.

It's a wonder they've lasted this long.

Maybe you'd like me

to list their atrocities.

Maybe our human can help us.

Maybe he has a few of his own.

Listen, buddy, I didn't ask for this ring.

You want it back, take it,
