Hal Jordan's addiction and the birth of parallax

After reading Green Lantern 4 I've become rather convinced that Hal Jordan is addicted to the Ring and all the power that comes with it, others however tend to disagree with me, reason being that Hal focuses more on the betterment of mankind rather than his own selfish needs.

which was true, in the beginning....
Even in the 1940's Hal was used as a way to inspire, obstacles were placed in front of Jordan so that he could overcome them, but that all ended in the 90's, with the green lantern comic facing probable cancellation something drastic had to be done, as with the wrestling world (and you thought i wasn't going to suggest wrestling) It was suggested that Hal Jordan become a villain, the backdrop of Jordan's villainous change, the destruction of coast city and the death of all its inhabitants, Jordan became a changed man attempting to reanimate those he loved and lost in the battle of the supermen Jordan decided that he needed more power, he started attacking more his friends and colleagues from the corps and killing them, taking their rings whilst reaching his target OA.


 Jordan Kills the guardians by merging himself with the energy in the central power battery, Parallax continues to be a thorn in the side of Kyle Rayner, the new green lantern as he attempts to undo the damage that parallax had done in the past, this continues until Jordan finally gains the power that he needs to rework the universe the way he wants but is foiled again by superman and the other members of the justice league and justice society.


Jordan as Parallax craves power, he craves the need to make things right and believes that with infinity power comes infinite opportunity to heal the world of all sins thus he believes by commiting sinful acts himself he is doing so for the greater good of mankind.

Now what does this have to do with Jordans current story within Green Lantern Vol 5?, simple......

Jordan believes that by baring the green ring he is doing so for the greater good, by utilizing the rings power he is helping those less fortunate who are struggling, the weak, the impoverished, but he is also aligning himself with one of his greatest enemies, Sinistro and by doing so  Jordan has become a porn inwhich Sinistro can use for his own purpose, which thus leads me to the point on addiction, the Jordan now and Parallax are literally one in the same they both crave the power of the ring but Parallax craved more whereas Jordan only craves a little, enough to do good, to feel important, to be a hero....

and thus I believe will be Jordans undoing and may lead to the rebirh of a greater threat than parallax, but again only time will tell....
