Green Lantern: The Animated Series - Homecoming

Green Lantern: The Animated Series concludes it's first season with an invasion of Oa, a fleet of Red Lanterns on the verge of invading Guardian space, and a trip home for Hal Jordan (Josh Keaton). Although it's taken me a little time to warm to the design and look of the show the first season did have its moments and I'll be interested to see where it goes from here with the conclusion of the Red Lantern story arc.

With Atrocitus (Jonathan Adams) and his minions on the way to Oa and his fleet about to enter Guardian space Hal Jordan, Kilowog (Kevin Michael Richardson), and Razer (Jason Spisak) will have to find a way to turn the tide before all is lost. While Kilowog attempts to slow the battle fleet, with a little help from Mogo (Richardson) and Saint Walker (Phil Morris), Hal takes a desperate gamble by going to the Zamrans for help.

The Star Sapphires are able to send Jordan back to Earth to his true love Carol Ferris (Jennifer Hale) but the journey tampers with his memory making Hal forget the pressing matter of saving Oa and the entire Green Lantern Corps. Carol is able to jump start Hal's memory using his Power Battery and Green Lantern heads to Oa to stop Atrocitus.

The episode concludes with Hal's victory over Atrocitus, Kilowog and his new friends stopping the armada, and the Guardians admitting to the failure of the Manhunters and pledging to do their part to make things right in the Forgotten Zone. With everything neatly wrapped up Hal returns home to Carol and we'll see what new adventures GL will find himself if (or more likely when) the show returns for a second season.
