WHAT IS H.E.A.T.?
H.E.A.T. is an acronym that stands for Hal's Emerald Advancement Team. We have a diverse membership that is united behind this mission statement: "As Green Lantern fans, it is our goal to encourage and advocate the return and exoneration of Hal Jordan as Green Lantern, the restoration of the Green Lantern legend, and the revival of the
honorable Green Lantern Corps."
