The Green Lantern Corps are warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order. Protectors of peace and justice, they are an elite and powerful force that has existed for centuries. Now, however, a new enemy threatens the balance of power in the Universe and it falls to their newest recruit, human Hal Jordan, to save the Corps and his home planet, Earth.
