      ...they are plot device on their own with absolutely next to no limit to what they can achieve. Sure not all showings show that but it's the same for all characters. As usual if people go for one character best showing they HAVE to do the same for the other characters... and GL's have frightingly powerful showings to be sure. For me a top GL like Hal is a excellent and even match for surfer. The best herald vs the best GL. Both with ubber versatility and extra ordinary intensity. The only down side for Hal is he has to end the fight before 24h has elapsed. Otherwise it would be an incredible fight.

    I think GLs are a lot like Flash. They have shown such incredible power that some of their losses make absolutely no sense. They seem like low level telekinetics at times and at others they are should be the most powerful characters in comics.

I think that the Green Lantern power itself IS one of the greatest in all of comics.  But how much of that power any one Green Lantern can utilize is still based on the willpower of the wearer... and they may have good days and bad.  Anybody who has attempted to quit smoking (be they successful or not) knows that your willpower is not constant.  Sometimes you've got it, sometimes you don't.
Sure, the GLs go through rigorous training to hone their willpower into a usable weapon, and are much stronger willed than the rest of us, but they ARE still capable of having a bad day.
