If any Green Lantern were to be officially labeled the antithesis of the Guardians of the Universe, it would be Hal Jordan. As a result of the death of his father, he refused to acknowledge fear, living a life of risk and insubordination.

Despite great debate among the Guardians on the very idea of a human drafted into the Corps, the ring had never chosen unwisely. And for a time, many even began to believe the ring had chosen … well.
