Part 4: Revenge of Oompa Loompa

Through the years, comic books have the real chronology in terms of what counts in character's historys, while movies and cartoons are mere adaptations.

This said, through the ages, there have been many green lanterns across the universe.

The first ever green lantern was created in the 1940's, and his real name is Alan Scott, who is still around, as a member of the justice society.

In the 60's, carmine infantino, revitalized the green lantern franchise by adding a new concept, an army that protects the universe, with basicly the same powers and name as the first one. Earth's Green Lantern, was Hal Jordan, who was one of the founding member, and part of it in many incarnations, of the justice league of america.

Guy Gardner, and John Stewart came aboard, in the 80s. While Guy was mostly used as a comedy relief character with his macho pose, Stewart was never used to his fully potential, and later was even put on a shelf. For a while he was even on another inter galactical army, called the darkstars.
Stewart would only gain some popularity among fans in the 2000's, when DC wanted some colour diversity on their justice league cartoon. After that, they gave him a bit of a "push" on the comics, but never as the n1 Green Lantern, as the green lantern magazine was always starred by either kyle or hal.
John was always more of a support character.

In the 90's DC wanted to revitalize the Green Lantern once again, and so they basicly turned (he was possessed by an entity) Hal Jordan into a villain. Jordan killed most of the green lanterns, as well as their masters the guardians. Only ganthet survived of the guardians, to deliver the last green lantern ring, to the newest and last, green lantern Kyle Ryner.

For a while Kyle was the only Green Lantern.

With time, the green lantern corps returned as well as jordan.

For the Game DC used Hal, not only because he is the most recognizable green lantern, but also the "true" to many fans green lantern, for his longevity in the comic book world. You can substitute anyone, even spiderman, but not the man behind the mask. Hal Jordan is one of the most iconic characters in comics. The others are 2nd grade characters, with only Kyle coming close to Hal.

All 4 mentioned have been, one at each time, a member of the justice league.
