As much as I liked the idea of Hal Jordan coming back as the Spectre post-DAY OF JUDGMENT, the ensuing storyline of him being the spirit of redemption didn’t work for me. I guess I like my ghosts vengeful and extreme, and the Hal stories didn’t match up to the excellent John Ostrander/Tom Mandrake series.
One thought on “Mash-Up #344 Spectre vs Spectre”
I never really gave that particular run or phase of Hal’s life that much attention. It was a start towards true redemption I thought that JM DeMatteis seemed to have weaved into a psychological horror starring a Silver Age Sci-Fi hero. It was a bold try, but I can see where fans of Hal would be utterly divided on how to accept that take.
That being said, as much as Hal thrives under pressure and pulls out a win at the very end, The OG Spectre, Jim Corrigan has the experience to beat him.
