We mentioned this was coming a little while ago. Hal Jordan getting a Green Lantern ring upgrade – with some new abilities. And The Green Lantern Season 2 #1 (now of 8) only scratching the surface of the new infinite set of powers that the ring seems to be able to access. I am reminded of when Grant Morrison gave someone in Doom Patrol every superpower you have never thought of, forcing the team to shout out superpowers in mid-fight to disarm their assailant.
So that includes new shrink ray abilities…
…and evolutionary wind-back abilities.
And a ring quite happy to (seemingly) take over the operations so that Hal Jordan doesn't need to read the manual. It's even more of a wishing ring than ever before, and the voice that of the genie within the lamp…

In the wake of the Blackstar incursion, Hal Jordan and his fellow Lanterns must pick up the pieces from that cataclysmic conclusion. Among them is Jordan's next critical mission: search for the next generation of cosmic immortals. Is the universe ready for…the Young Guardians?In Shops: Feb 12, 2020
The Green Lantern Season 2 #1 is published today from DC Comics. I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
