|Real name:||Abin Sur|
|Affiliations:||Green Lantern Corps|
Abin Sur was the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 up until his death. His ship crash lands on Earth. As he lays there, he knows that he is too weak to carry out his work as Intergalactic Space Patrolman. So, with what little energy he has, he tries to seek out a deserving earthling to pass on his battery of power. He touches his ring to the battery of power knowing that it will find an honest and fearless one to take his place. It finds test-pilot, Hal Jordan, who is seated in his flightless jet-trainer.
With his dying breath, he introduces himself and explains that he has chosen him to be the Space Patrolman for this sector, to defend against evil and injustice. He goes onto explain what the battery of power is, and that it works against everything, except that which is yellow. He then gives Hal Jordan his power ring and the battery of power (which powers the ring).
