Hal Jordan as Green Lantern: The Animated Series on Cartoon Network

Hal Jordan and Kilowog have their hands full against the combined forces of Atrocitus, the Red Lanterns, and the Manhunters. Good thing those hands are fueled with the Green Lantern Power Rings! Kilowog is always there to offer guidance to the Green Lantern of Sector 2814, which he hopes will at least keep Hal a little grounded as a Green Lantern. But living a double life as a pilot, Jordan is anything but “grounded!” This is the complexity Cartoon Network hopes to introduce with Green Lantern: The Animated Series, premiering in just a few short weeks. With other characters from the DC Comics comic book rounding out the cast, like Carol Ferris, Salaak, Sayd, Saint Walker, and Zilius Zox, it looks like we’re due for some awesome adventures! You ready? Brightest Day?
