The Green Lantern Hal Jordon
The Green lantern for mugen is created by Buyog and is available on buyog.com as a downloadable character.
The sprites for the most part are custom made and look fabulous! He is also a rare example of a proper use of an afterimage glow in this newly updated version! He has a very unique special called the buzzcut, it is some type of medieval weapon with a roller wheel of spikes. As he hits the opponent, the opponent will rise up for some juggle damage. By far the most creative attack, next to his anvil grapple smash. Next he has the standard Green Lantern Corps bubble attack that traps and pops it's victim. Another special move of interest is a ram attack, it looks fitting for its unusual size. Hal will also do am arial sword slash to. He has the standard Green Lantern Corps ring attack beam as well. All sprited flawlessly. As far as hypers go, Hal will unleash a giant boxing glove attack in two separate varieties. Another good hyper is Hal's artillery fire, just an all out military strike for that good 'ol MvC finisher! Hal has a new hyper called the "Ion Force", which is probably his best hyper yet. It has a fantastic animation where vertical beams rotate around Hal for several strikes. Truly a creative and skillful maneuver of rare creativity. The Green Lantern also does a charge attack on horseback that works to standard.
The only thing that's wrong here is that there's too much stuff that wasn't needed. Hal has some various palette modes with very small differences and minor changes with a few different specials. Perhaps not a bad thing for the die hard GL fan, but a headache for the casual gamer to deal with. A lot of back story to comb through when Hal goes Red or Blue. It's not really an issue and really it's a nice bonus for those who want more but still a bit confusing. The single issue that has been plaguing Hal for the longest time now is his horrible Ring Slinging hyper attack. It clearly went through a revamp but it still falls flat, the projectiles don't seem to fit the look and style. They also function poorly to attack in formation though this could have been intentional. Hal also has enough hypers, more than enough, he could get along without this one. I don't think it will be missed either.

Green Lantern is the staple for all the Green Lanterns out there. He has it all and makes it work the best. One thing that really grabbed me was the level of shade detail in the rings manifestations. This one is a must, a lot was done right and it has even more to offer for those that hunger for it. Download this one for your working good quality mugen game!!!
