Green Lantern Hal Jordan has witnessed firsthand the immense power of rings fueled by rage, fear, passion, hope and will.

None of them could prepare him for the insatiable power of greed.

Following up the shocking events of Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns, Jordan finds himself, much against his will, belonging to two lantern corps. In addition to his usual willpower fueled green ring, Jordan now sports a blue ring of hope, the only cure for his recent possession by a red ring of rage.

While the new bauble helps boost the power of his original immensely, it simply won’t come off until he truly feels hope — something that doesn’t come very easily after an ancient enemy of the Green Lantern Corps’ creators, the Guardians of the Galaxy, suddenly reappears after countless millennia in hiding sporting an orange power ring fuelled by avarice.

Writer Geoff Johns and artist Philip Tan add another really interesting colour to the spectrum of power and superbly set the stage for the mega-crossover series, Blackest Night, currently raging across the DC Universe.
