Actually, this reminds me of another thing I hated about GL - the idea that Hal was blessed with this incredible power, had a 10-minute training session, and then spends the bulk of the movie whining that he doesn't want to be a hero, etc. Even before he gets the Super Soldier Serum, Steve Rogers is someone to look up to because he always wants to do the right thing, even if - especially if - it's not easy.
