- 1 hr 15 min
Green Lantern: First Flight is about test pilot Hal Jordan as he tries to navigate the difficulties of life as the superhero Green Lantern. Hal has only recently received the ring that gives him great power, and he has been placed under the tutelage of senior officer Sinestro. Sinestro is a prominent member of the Guardians, a group of beings from across the galaxy that try to restore peace. Hal has been selected as the representative of Earth. As Hal and Sinestro investigate the death of one of the Guardians, Hal learns that Sinestro has a rebellious nature and does not abide by the code that all Guardians must live by. When trying to catch the criminal mastermind Kanjar Ro, Hal is captured but is saved by Sinestro, though Sinestro uses violent measures in the rescue. Sensing that Hal is growing suspicious of him, Sinestro blames Hal for the murder of Kanjar Ro, which causes the Guardians to strip him of membership. Sinestro is then free to continue his plan to take control of the Guardians and run them as he sees fit. However, Hal knows that Sinestro is not what he seems, and talks two other Guardians into going after him. Unfortunately, this turns out to be a setup, as Sinestro had prepared for this occurrence and manages to get away. Humiliated and exhausted, Hal continues to search for Sinestro, intent on clearing his name and taking down Sinestro's attempt to dismantle the Guardians. Finally, Hal comes face-to-face with Sinestro on the planet of Oa, and must gather the strength to defeat his powerful foe. Hal's plight in Green Lantern: First Flight demonstrates that even superheroes can sometimes have doubts about the good they are doing, but that they must persevere to help a universe that desperately needs them.
