In a fistfight, maybe John, but as far as the ring goes, no one beats Hal Jordan when he's on point, though Sinestro and a couple of others may give him a fight.

considering John's military training background, the Marines no less. In a fight where writer bias didn't matter, I'd go with Stewart. He's a marine for god's sake, with a freaking GL sniper rifle. The whole weighing of Xanshi on his mind would be the only thing holding him back. Hopefully that shit will be resolved during or after BN.

I have to disagree that john is a better flyer,i just dont see how he could be a better flyer than a man who was in the air force and whos life is pretty well all about flying.

I stopped caring about these things when I was 15...

but if I had to bet I'd put my money on it I'd say John would win in a streetfight because he's several years younger than Hal, and now he was a US Marine.

In a ring contest, I'd say Hal because of his experience, knowledge, and stubborness.

"In Green Lantern: Rebirth, Hal Jordan remarks that "everything John builds is solid". He also remarked that Stewart is the best flyer in the Corps." (Wikipedia)

Green Lantern Volume 3 Iussue 156 page 11 panel one caption box reads as follows
"of all the green lanterns of earth, John Stewart was Always the best flyer"

pannel 2, 2nd box "When noticing his strength at flight, Hal Jordan had called him a natural athlete. John had thanked him and then asked if Hal thought "...All black men were natural athletes...?

3rd box: He was just chiding his predecessor, but maybe there was some truth to john's adeptness at flight. maybe it did just come to him naturally.

4th box: or maybe its because he just love it so much.

this must be what they were referencing...(ignore my free time)

I dunno guys, I can't really call this one....

Hal can scrap no doubt... and yes I know he knocked Bats off his feet with one punch (very dramatic). And the Sinestro War end fight was priceless.

John is a bull dog... nuff said.

I'd love for them to come to my fight club and see what happens...lol.

Seriously, I could see this going either way on any given day.

What I'd like to see more of is what non ring combat training GL Corpsmen are given... that would help me with a pick. (I know they are both ex U.S. military... aside from that).

John, he's a fighter at heart & the fact that on the Justice League series there were many times when he was w/o his ring or it didnt work and he had to fight or utilize another means of defence or attack.

Mano a mano = hand to hand, so in terms of the thread topic I think Hal would win out over John more times than not and here's my reasoning: (though I'm obviously biased)
- Regardless of their previous military training, I would think their Corps training trumps that or at least levels the playing field. (unless someone can mention an issue where one of them was stated as having done better in their corps training) That being said, I think Hal has the advantage because of his experience. Hal's been shown on many more occassions having to fight and improvise and persevere sans ring against all sorts of opponents in many different circumstances.

I'm familiar with that scene in Mosaic. And it certainly is an example of John proving a point to Hal, but it far from settles the argument. John had a lot more at stake in that confrontation and it was a mental landscape. John's will won out because he wanted it more in that situation. It doesn't change my mind that I think Hal would win more times than not in hand-to-hand combat.
