* CharacterShilling: Other characters frequently declared Hal the greatest Green Lantern of all time - an impressive claim for an organization that has thousands of members at a time and has been in existence for ''three billion years''. In actuality, while Hal was generally good at his job, he frequently got knocked around by foes nowhere near his league, and was infamously unimaginative, tending to default to giant boxing gloves. This was generally avoided when he returned, with writer GeoffJohns being careful to give all the human Lanterns moments in the sun, and requiring Hal to earn other people's respect, but occasionally someone like Batman will still revert to uncharacteristic gushing. Played straight later in Johns' run, when Hal was once again specifically called the Greatest Green Lantern.

Played straight later in Johns' run, when Hal was once again specifically called the Greatest Green Lantern. However, it should be noted that Hal does have the feats to back it up and it can hardly be argued to be considered a hollow statement.



* HeroicWillpower: Brought to extremes on many occasions, and his will ''always'' comes out on top, even going as far as to [[spoiler:control a Black Ring and '''''Nekron''''' himself]].

* HeroicWillpower: Brought to extremes on many occasions, and his will ''always'' comes out on top, even going as far as to [[spoiler:control a Black Ring and '''''Nekron''''' himself]]. He is, in fact, considered to have the strongest willpower in the Universe.



** While you might not need to be exemplary smart to be "A" pilot, you probably do need to be quite smart to be THE ace combat pilot of your universe. A lot of Hal being the butt of idiot hero jokes is simply the division within the fandom he inspires, as the fans of the other Lanterns typically will band together in their dislike for their favorite Lantern being pushed aside in favor of Hal Jordan. In all, Hal does not have any more embarrassing moments in old comic books than most other premier heroes, such as Superman with the famous "superdickery", Batman with his unfortunate implications and hilariously outdated dialogue (such as the term "boner"), Wonder Woman finding her way into a bondage-related scenario in her early comics, or Aquaman being "useless". It hasn't stopped Hal from being the most recognized GL, both in and out of universe.



* LimitedWardrobe: Hal can always be seen wearing his father's brown pilot jacket when he's not in-uniform.

* LimitedWardrobe: Hal can always be seen wearing his father's brown pilot jacket when he's not in-uniform. He even forms an ethos around it, taken from a saying his father used to have: a real man wears his jacket proudly on his shoulders but keeps it unzipped, ready to be offered to anyone who might need it more.

* CharacterShilling: When he replaced Hal Jorda] as Green Lantern. Having folks like ComicBook/MartianManhunter, Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} say what a terrific guy you are, completely unsolicited, led to much eye-rolling even amongst fans of the character, who felt that such shilling validated many complaints that haters of the character had. Luckily, Rayner managed to survive the shilling and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap was officially rescued from the scrappy pile.]]
