Green Lantern #90: "Those Who Worship Evil's Might!"
Download Green Lantern v2 #90
Hal Jordan started doing business as the Green Lantern in 1959. Over the years it was revealed that he wasn't the only one, and there were more Green Lanterns in the universe than you could shake a stick at, over three thousand of them actually. Jordan, all by himself, was first seen in DC's Showcase #22 (October 1959). After auditioning again in the next two issues, he moved into his own title in the spring of 1960. "When the returns started coming in on the Flash and we saw we had a hit, the natural instinct was to do something similar," editor Julius Schwartz once recalled. "That's how we decided to go ahead with the Green Lantern, and I worked out the same theory of giving him a new personality, a new costume, a new everything."
