Indexer Notes

Hal Jordan displays a clear animus towards the Guardians when they order him to save a planet while his friends are in danger back on Earth. He threatens that they will regret it for a long, long time if his home and friends were destroyed, in an early foreshadowing of the events of Emerald Twilight.
