A special shout out goes today to Absorbascommando Sharif Youssef, who reminds us:
When you're Hal Jordan...
"thud" isn't just a sound effect, it's a verb, baby.
That time, he hit so hard, it knocked the yellow out of his boot! Note that, in Coast City, the sight of Hal Jordan bouncing off the walls in a semiconscious state is so common that it goes entirely unnoticed by the average masked bank robber: "Hm? Oh, that's probably just Green Lantern, suffering head trauma in a crumpled heap; why do you ask?"
Regular Coast Citizens, however, still thrill to the sight of HJ in action (or, for perhaps more appropriately, "inaction"), and will often recite The Green Lantern Prelude to Inaction:
Look, down on the ground!
It's a wino!
It's a sac of meal!
It's... HAL JORDAN!!!!!
