Green Lantern

Profile:
Spoiler:
Real Name: Harold 'Hal' Jordan

Short Bio:
A former test pilot, Hal Jordan was chosen to join the Green Lantern Corps because of his fearless heroic nature. His power ring, which he uses to create anything he can think of, is powered by his will.

Incredible willpower
Fierce, fearless fighter
With possession of the Power Ring, he can imagine and create any hard light construct with his ring
Flight


The key to using Hal in this game can be varied depending on the user's playstyle, as he is an all-round character with specials and normals that can be used at whatever range. As a rushdown character, using his trait plus his juggling combos will be the key to crippling your opponents as well as his mixups. As a zoner, he has the tools needed to keep them in check and combos that can knock away his opponent. Also, his Lantern's Might is one of his most powerful moves in his arsenal. Don't hesitate to throw it in, but not recklessly.

*May cause level transition if opponent is close enough to corner perimeter to be sent to the next part of arena.


Strategic Planning
Spoiler:
General Strategy: The general strategy is using Lantern very efficiently is using his meter during his combos, as most of his damaging combos mainly rely on using meter to keep his opponents juggling in the air. Don't be afraid to throw in Lantern's Might to keep your opponent in check, but not recklessly. He has very good mix-up options, so try to be more variant on your normal combos.

Zoners: There are two ways you can go about in this situation. First option is zoning right back with air Oa's Rocket, Minigun or MB Turbine Smash (although not recommended due to the move not doing any higher damage in MB version). Another option is closing in with the air Turbine Smash, landing at a safe spot. If within certain range, you can throw in Lantern's Might to stop their zoning momentum and head in with your offensive assault.

Rushdowns and Pressurers: If they try to close in really fast, use your minigun (both normal and MB versions) to keep them at bay. Also if they're not crossing up, and coming down in the air, use Lantern's Might to stop them at their tracks before either continuing to zone, or go on with the rushdown assault, including his signature BnB combos.

Some more cons for Green Lantern...

Dependancy on meter
Most of his bnb require at least one bar of meter. His meterless combos options are from Trait activated Lantern's Might +b1+2. You can activate trait F2+D1+Lantern's Might+B2+1 for a low 20%'er. That's pretty much all you're getting from no bar Green Lantern.

Bad wake up options
Lantern's Might is his ONLY wake up attack option. However, it's an extremely bad one. It doesn't protect against direct jump ins(think Batman's JI2) and it's negative on block.


Let's move on to trait techniques

Trait Canceling
You can cancel the trait activatation animation with any special attack. His most useful trait cancel is Lantern's Might because it can be used during a combo. From my knowledge, you can only Lantern's Might trait cancel from B2+1 and F2+D1.


Trait baiting
Activate trait at mid screen to bait your into attacking, cancel animate with Lantern's might or MB Oa's Rocket and let the combos fly!
My highest damaging combo is trait cancel Oa's rocket MB+ J2,2+2+3, Lantern's Might MB, B3+J3=46%

I will provide more combos later.

Spoiler:

Red: Oa’s rocket (whiffs on crouch)
Green: Rocket power (close = 2 character spaces; normal = 5; far = 8; hits crouching, whiffs Cat stance)
Purple: Machine gun (6 character spaces; hits crouch and Cat stance)
Brown: Turbine (8 character spaces; hits crouching and Cat stance)
White: Lantern’s might (3.5 character spaces; hits crouching, Cat stance and HG Flight)

Blue: Standing 1
Blue dots: Back 1 (1.5 character spaces; at certain ranges it will hit cat stance)
Blue double line: Down 1

Yellow: Standing 2 (1.75 character spaces; at certain ranges it will hit cat stance)
Yellow dots Back 2
Yellow dash: Forward 2
Yellow double line: down 2 (vertical kind of hit box; overlaps with B+3)

Orange: Standing 3
Orange dots: Back 3 (hits crouching and cat stance)
Orange dash: Forward 3
Orange double line: down 3
 
Thanks iVital. Although I won't paste to the op. But a nice idea to see the hit ranges of every move.

By the way, The minigun goes half screen without trait but can go 3/4 screen with trait active.

Some more BnBs

-Lantern's Might MB+B3,JI3,2+2+3+Lantern's Might=32%

-B2+1+Trait cancel Lantern's Might+B3,JI3,2+2+3+Lantern's Might=33%(can also be used without trait cancel)

-2+2+3,Lantern's Might MB, B3,JI3, 2+2+3+Lantern's Might=33%
F3+D1, Trait cancel Lantern's Might MB, B3,JI3, 2+2+Lantern's Might=35%(can also be used without trait cancel)

-JI3+Lantern's Might MB, B3,JI3, 2+2+3+Lantern's Might=40%

-F3+2+Oa's Rocket MB+JI2+2+2+Lantern's Might MB+B3=40%

Don't know any of his corner stuff. He has a 1+2+3 starter but I never use it.

Random tips

-JI3, F3, and B1 are REALLY good.

-Don't be afraid to spam lantern's might if your opponent isn't punishing you.

-Use Minigun at the end of a blocked string to prevent a punish. Minigun is also good for chewing up armor.

-Mix up B2+1 with B2+2 to keep your opponent guessing.

-Only use Turbine smash from a distance where you can land safety away from your opponent.

-Rocket power is useless.

Not trying to be a know-it-all or a dick, but I kinda expected more from this thread man. I was kinda hoping for a decent informative guide over Green Lantern, You listed Pros/Cons, Strings, Combos and that's it. I gave you the space control picture to use as a reference when writing up on his specials and normals, and when I say "Write up" I mean a decent description on them all, telling when to use them, how to use them, and answering key question like "If I use this string (B1,2) from this distance and they're blocking it 95% of the time, then I can set myself up in the range of my string (B1,2) for a dash in throw" (<--- Footsies 101) or "If you use this combo from this string, here are your Oki options and reset options from here".

There was sooooooo much more you could've expanded on in this thread.

Sorry. But I haven't playing a whole lot besides last night. Work is a real killer Vital.

I understand that, but this info should've been in the guide from Day 1.

I had to put in hours of my day into creating the Mileena 2.0 thread, and everything from the OP to the 2nd post was already in the guide before I posted it.
 
I usually think about it on the spot...... Even though I could've added more stuff... And who's says it's gonna be a huge encyclopedia in the guides? I'm just putting in as much info, the best way I can think of.

See, that's the thing. YOU'RE not the only one reading it, other people are trying to level up from this so you have to think about it from the readers POV. I didn't have a guide to learn Mileena in my MK9 days, so I had to learn the basic fundamentals of the game AND character specifics on my own then when I mustered up the confidence to write my own guide I'd think about what I would like to know about the character if I had solid fundamentals and was ready to have a secondary character.

I understand what you're saying. Guess I gotta be more into the details from the readers point of view. And that's the same situation I was in. Didn't had a guide to understand my character and basics. It may not be the best guide, but I'm doing what I feel that it must be done for the others, although it's not like a major gamefaqs-esque full guide and be insane with huge descriptions, since I'm not an all-out technical fighter.
 
UPDATE: Added combos to the Injustice Combo part in the Custom Combos section.

Will post up video when I'm done recording the most used ones in the meterless, meter and super combos. Plus, may add a few injustice ones in there.
