Hal Jordan was a pilot at Broom Lake Air Force Base. During a fight between Kyle Rayner and Sinestro, his plane was damaged.
In the DC Animated Universe, it is unknown if Hal Jordan is or ever was a Green Lantern.
- The Superman: The Animated Series episode "In Brightest Day", uses Jordan's origin as a Green Lantern for Kyle Rayner, as Rayner was the Green Lantern at the time of the episode's production. During a fight with Sinestro, Rayner crashes into Jordan's plane.
- Hal Jordan as a Green Lantern makes a physical appearance in the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Once and Future ThingPart II: Time Warped" voiced by Adam Baldwin. When time becomes fluid, John Stewart is unexpectedly replaced by Hal. He quickly introduces himself to his bewildered teammates and continues on as if nothing happened, explaining that the ring has brought him "up to speed". Later, as the assembled heroes close in on the time-warping villain responsible, Hal reverts to John, causing Static to say "Make up your mind!".
