origin & 1st app. Silver Age Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
After the runaway success of the revamped Flash in Showcase #4, DC editors scrambled through the archives looking for Golden Age heroes to rework and repackage for the Atomic Era. Unsurprisingly, the next big hit of the DC Silver Age was a refurbished Green Lantern, who was upgraded to a devil-may-care hero with a science-fiction themed secret identity and origin tale perfectly suited to the Sputnik-era. Crack DC draftsman Gil Kane turned in an extraordinary and timeless costume, and indefatigable scribe John Broome worked with DC editor Julius Schwartz to concoct a mystical, yet futuristic, and surprisingly moving debut. If the Flash was the hint of a Silver Age of heroes, this book affirmed its existence and assured everything that followed. Its importance to comic history cannot be understated.
