He works a job for Ferris, he's a capable person, he qualifies for a Green Lantern ring- what's in name only about him?

Is it him approaching using the ring " from the perspective of a scientist "? The Earth One's imprint about modern reinterpretations of characters- what's wrong with him consequently being closer to another type of science fiction protagonist?

If you think about it, there really isn't anything considered essential to Hal Jordan that isn't the result of existing for years in a shared universe.

A fresh take that goes back to his roots, that drills down and finds recognizable parts of them that aren't just artifacts of the setting and translates them into a tonally appropriate but entirely new setting, is entirely possible with him.

(If nothing else, it makes this a contrast to all the other Earth One books, which for all their quality still come across as thinking modernization should just mean " take familiar stories/characters, slap a fresh coat of paint on them, and expect the memory of experiencing their older forms to give their new ones any kind of meaning beyond the rote one of ' this sure is a competently told story from start to finish ' ".)
